Are You Due For A Handbag Update?

If you’ve been carrying the same basic black handbag for years, think about mixing it up a bit.

You can see in these photos, the impact a great bag can add to an outfit.

It doesn’t need to be a fancy designer, latest “It” bag and it doesn’t need to match your shoes, as these ladies demonstrate beautifully.  (In fact matchy/matchy can be aging)  

Keep your bags looking clean, fresh and modern.  Just like shoes, bags can become outdated – particularly if they have lots of bells and whistles – studs, zips, chains, buckles, etc.

Could it be time to add something a bit different and unique to your bag collection?

*Or might it be that you have some fabulous bags that, for whatever reason, you’re not using?

Take Time To Notice Everyday Beauty Around You

0171 768x1024 Take Time To Notice Everyday Beauty Around You

Today when I was at Melbourne Central and heard the giant clock playing it’s tune, I peered over the edge of the rail as I walked past and noticed lots of people below were watching the little performance it was giving but there were also some people who were looking up. Skyward.  So I did too……and I realised, that despite the fact that I am sometimes in the complex shopping with clients five or more times a week,  I’d never taken the time to really look at the view of the glass dome and the Shot Tower housed within in it.

I think it can happen (well for me anyway, because I rush around so much) that we can fail to really see the beauty of some of our daily surroundings.

Our neighbours beautiful roses, the amazing view from our desk or simply the piercing clear blue sky.  The little things that make everyday life lovelier.

Next time you’re at Melbourne Central, make sure you look up, it’s quite spectacular.

Later in the day when I was having lunch in one of my regular laneway haunts, my view from the cafe was looking straight at one of my favourite Melbourne landmarks – the Majorca Building.

Inside Emporium Melbourne

16 Apr

0311 768x1024 Inside Emporium Melbourne

Following on from my previous post, I had a quick dash around Emporium Melbourne today.

Before I left for work the radio station I was listening to was reporting huge queues waiting to get in, so I suspected I wouldn’t bother with it today but when I finished shopping with my client at Melbourne Central, I just wandered over the Lonsdale St. bridge and straight in.

As you can see by the photos it was relatively and surprisingly quiet.  It’s a very big space though (once in I couldn’t work out how to get out) so it would take a lot of people to make it look crowded.

There were a lot more shops open today than I had anticipated..but still many yet to open.

Once completed, I think it’s going to be great.

I had a wander around Uniqlo.  A couple of things that immediately caught my eye were some silk shirts in various colors (approx. $80) and patterns, some fur lined parkas ($150 ish) and the array of different colored feather filled puffers ($99).   *I’m looking for a warm jacket to wear to the football so this is why the jackets jumped out at me.

On my way to the station I went past H & M thinking I might drop in there if there were no queues…but there were still long queues.

Emporium Melbourne

0061 758x1024 Emporium Melbourne

This is the Lt.Bourke Street entrance to Emporium.  (ie. the back of Myer)  The newest shopping complex about to open in Melbourne.

There was lots of activity – builders madly adding finishing touches, delivery vans arriving and people taking stock inside – when I walked past today.

You couldn’t see inside.  As you can see from the photos, windows were covered up. But from what I could see, I thought it looked pretty fancy.

If the Melbourne CBD wasn’t already a great place to shop, it certainly will be now.

As a Personal Stylist who takes people shopping …it’s very exciting.  (As my client said today, it’s like a Personal Shopper’s Disneyland)
