I was happily doing some serious browsing at Lenko in Flinders Lane today when I swung around to see one of my favourite bloggers Hayley Hughes of Fashion Hayley!

Now as I am wont to do in these situations, I instantly felt a little star struck and so totally downplayed how exciting it was to meet her by mumbling incoherently – made worse with a streaming cold! She was very gracious and asked if I blogged (cue another unintelligible reply by me when I could have just replied yes) but I did manage to ask how she was settling back into Melbourne “loving it” and how much I enjoy her blog.

I read Hayley’s blog because its a refreshing alternative to the bajillions of selfie-posting, YSL loving blogs out there and she talks about interesting new labels you may not have heard of, whilst giving us a well-written glimpse into her exciting life. Along with Susie Bubble, Jess at Whatwouldkarldo Sarah at sarahsstyleemporium and Phoebe at Ladymelbourne – these ladies keep me in the know, help sate my voracious appetite for all things fashion and keep me smiling along the way.

Enjoy!

Colours for Redheads

Colours for Redheads
Here’s the thing about redheads – they are by far the easiest group to work out which colours suit – its much more a matter of tone.  The set I’ve put together above incorporates colours that will suit almost all redheads, with just a tweak of the exact shade of each colour and that can be done very easily by standing in a jewellery shop and holding accessories up to your face, maybe take a quick snap with your phone so you can compare later!  Questions to ask, does this shade of the colour wash me out or make me look vibrant?  You know the answer…
Now go wear some colour – its summer in Australia!
