Impulse buy(s)

There is this clothing/accessories/lifestyle shop near where I live, it is called ili (I love it). It is owned by a woman who is a stylist. She stocks lots of Australian brands like Sacha Drake, Mesop, Elk, Walnut, Nicole Fendel etc.

She also stocks a label called nancybird. Nina from Offspring wore a lot of the clothes and Accessories.

I have been there to look around and have a chat with the saleslady a few times, but never felt confident to buy anything. Today, I bought this. It's silk. Look:

I shall style it with some grey skinny jeans and sandals. Or blue/indigo jeans.
Or with a straight skirt for work.

Also, I have a few weddings coming up. Any good ideas of where to get formal-ish dresses?

I quite like this frock from DeCjuba. It would look good with a gold belt. But it might be a bit bright.

I generally love garments that you can throw on and feel fab. That can be dressed up or down. I bought this from Katies a couple of weeks ago, after I saw it on Sonia Styling.

  4. A good local boutique is worth its weight in gold Cilla!! I used to go to one in North Carlton (in Rathdown Street, not sure if it's still there) called Frisk. The woman who owned it was excellent. Had such a good eye, all small independent designer stuff, really interesting bits and pieces. Love the colours in the top - feels very summery. Hope you're getting some good weather (was so bloody cold on Thursday for my very brief trip to Melb)!! xx

  5. I don't think the DeCjuba dress is too bright but it's polyester. I hate wearing polyester esp in summer.

    I usually hate maxi dresses on me until I get to certain point in summer then I'm like must have maxi dress NOW. I think it's at the point where it's stinking hot and I can't be bothered shaving my legs.

    The silk top is lovely. I could see with some tight capris and ballet flats. I'm thinking like Audrey Hepburn in that movie where she works in the bookshop.
