I've long been a fan of peplum shapes, with dresses and blazers filling my wardrobe, but surprisingly, this is the first peplum top.

It is such a flattering silhouette and works dressed up or dressed down. Trend or no trend, peplum will be a regular wardrobe addition.

Not much beats throwing on a pair of your favourite jeans and a t-shirt.

One of my favourite looks, I love taking the basics and dressing up with the perfect collection of accessories.

Note-worth is this beyond incredible clutch, via Melbourne designer, Graine

I absolutely adore this half moon shape, a totally unique addition to my wardrobe and handbag collection.

Definitely a new label watch.


PARTY PANTS

These pants, via Aussie label Hussy, certainly are show stoppers. With elegant draping and perfectly shimmery sequins, they need nothing more than tailored black blazer for one of my favourite evening looks.

As I've mentioned previously, I'm in the process of planning a wedding overseas. I've got my good friend and dress maker-extraordinaire Monique, creating me a 50's inspired lace and tulle masterpiece.

Think a modern take on Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face.

Other than a few ideas emailed back and forth, I'm leaving the design, arguably one of the biggest wedding decisions, completely in the hands of my friend - a carefree bride indeed.

As for shoes, I'm thinking Christian Louboutin's 'un bout' - the perfect Cinderella slipper. Now the search to find a pair.

I'm thrilled, excited, and can't wait to share the final design with you.

Five weeks and counting.
