As we find ourselves yet again with Valentine’s Day upon us, you’ve probably noticed that seasonal spike in lingerie editorials.
Lovely, yes… but to my mind none of them are really tackling the big question…
Are You Wearing The Wrong Bra??
Indeed, many may have had this suspicion for some time. You know you’re supposed to get a proper fitting… but you just never seem to get around to it.
I’m here to tell you, you’re not alone (cue: knowing nods).
But I also have to admit that I know next to nothing about finding the right bra, so today I defer to a ‘bra expert’ – Marie Savvas, designer of the loveliest lingerie label, Palindrome, whose career in the bra business spans more than two decades.

So maybe legs aren’t ‘your thing’…
Maybe your best asset is in fact a lovely, slender neck atop a pair sun kissed shoulders, (offset by some handsome clavicles).
If this sounds like you (or the you you plan on channeling), then this season’s crop of off-the-shoulder tops has your name written all over them.
But I know what your thinking
“What bra would I wear with them??”
Stay tuned. I’ll get to that.
But in the meantime, back your clavicles…

Have you heard the latest?
Cool girls don’t wear skinny jeans anymore.
I understand that this news may be hard for diehard ‘skinny’ fans but I’m not going to sugarcoat it – it’s time to stash those skinny jeans away and embrace…
< drumroll >
The Classic Jean.
You know the ones. I’m sure you’ve hung out together before… but it’s been a while. Decades even.
For the uninitiated (read: under 25) the classic jean sits higher on the waist and is cut a little roomier though the leg before it tapers down around the ankle.
Are you in?

If you’re fond of a smock, dream wistfully of ‘the island life’ and like your wit with a heavy side of irony, then Innika Choo may just be your new girl crush.
Choo is an Australian expat, living in Bali with her husband and 2 little girls, that makes the dreamiest collection of smocks in her down time.
So hot are these billowy, embroidered cotton confections that each new delivery sells out fast… really fast.
To check out her current collection, pop across to her website here.
And to follow (read: mildly stalk) her mad life, whist getting intermittent heads-up on pending deliveries to the site, follow her here.
I’ve long-felt there was a big gap in the market for pleasing, well made leather handbags that you don’t have to juggle your health insurance payments to afford.
Clearly the stylish folks at Mon Purse also had the same idea.
Not only do they offer the most handsome selection of leather clutch purses, satchels, totes, bowlers and rucksacks in a rainbow of 32 colours… it’s all completely customisable!
With their terribly clever (and a little addictive) design software, you can create your own perfect bag, with the option of even adding a monogram.
Oh, and did I mention that they’re REALLY affordable?? (prices range from $59 for the coin purses, up to $349 for the bucket bags).
Pop across to their website to check it all out…
On the lookout for a stylish shoe that still has a ‘sensible head’ on its… umm… heels??
Let me introduce you to the Block Heeled Pump.
Equal parts classic and charming, they’re kind of like a ballet flat with lofty ambitions and are the perfect companion to that universally-flattering (read: everyone ones needs at least one) ‘cropped pant’ (seen here, here and here).

The Yellow pant is one of those things I’d never really considered until I saw this outfit… and now I’m pretty sure I need a pair.
And I know just the retro print tees to team them with too.

So there’s the literal peacock… and the peacock that takes shape as an adverb.
Gucci’s Spring 16 Collection so wonderfully embraces both.
Since Alessandro Michele took over the role of Creative Director at Gucci in 2015, his collections have drawn inspiration from the spirit of wanderlust, decadence, whimsy and all things vintage… and their new campaign, shot in and around Berlin, manages to so perfectly embody all of this.
Feeling the (peacock) love?
Pop across to their website to see all the collection that’s just arrived in store.
In my relentless pursuit of fashion, I’ve noticed an interesting development…
Ruffled bib-front shirts are everywhere!
Kind of like a fancy Western shirt, only more restrained (if you can really say that about ruffled bib-front shirt), they so handsomely stroll the line between charming and cheeky and look pretty darn cute teamed with this seasons frayed-edge denim.
