Stylish Flats At Work

Hello, My weekly post is a little different this week. Lately I’ve noticed a great variety of lower heeled shoes. Most of my style collages contain mid to high-heeled shoes. I certainly don’t suggest that only wearing high heels is the way to go at work. There has always been a greater, more interesting variety of[…]

Boho In The Winter

Bohemia is the free spirited intersection of the unconventional with art. I love bohemian style so much I dedicated this post to it.

Staying Stylish in The Winter

In the southern hemisphere winter is almost here. In fact here in Melbourne it has arrived early. What that has meant for me is jetting around updating women’s winter wardrobes ready for the cold months ahead. Hence why unfortunately it has been a long time between posts. Many apologies.
