It’s Derby Day this Saturday!

 

DERBY DAY SIGN

  It’s Derby Day this Saturday and we’re excited to see what everyone will be wearing on their feet to match their outfits!

Traditionally black and white has been the prominent colour scheme for women while men often choose a morning suit, peacock vest and pin-stripe pants. Here are our suggestions for this big day!

Ladies, if you will be standing on grass areas of Flemington, you should be wearing a wider heel or even a wedge heel that offers both comfort for the long day standing. Wider heels will not get stuck in the grass – therefore avoiding the dreaded heel dig.

And let’s not forget the men.

For the love of espadrilles!

Grace-Kelly-picture-1956

 

Espadrilles are all the rage this spring summer! Do you have your first, or second, or third pair yet?

 These comfortable flats were first seen on the silver screen in the 50’s & 60’s worn by the likes of Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall & Rita Hayworth…however the origins of the espadrille are much more humble. They are originally from the Pyrenees region of Spain and were worn by peasants from the area, but became a worldwide phenomenon in recent years.

 Today there are many shops in the Basque Country of Spain that have been making espadrilles for over a century! It only made sense to bring to you espadrilles from Spain.

Our Dolci Firme espadrilles are a more modern updated version of the traditional. Made in Spain, these espadrilles are the real thing. Our Double Platform Espadrilles come in a range of brights and neutrals these espadrilles will take you through this Melbourne summer in nonchalant Spanish flair.

Spring Fashion Week

Here are our top street style pics from Fashion Week, so good they are worthy of their own fashion show!!  Sometimes the footpath becomes its own catwalk with everyday people wearing amazing clothes and showing off their individual style around town.

 Skirts were a little longer, heels were a little higher and flat shoes were more prominent – perfect for those that had to run from show to show. Printed leathers and statement handbags are still the “go to”option for the fashionistas.

 Best ticket in town? The plane ticket that took you from New York fashion week, to London, to Paris and finishing in Milan.

So grab you invitation, drape your jacket over your shoulders, put your sunglasses on and get ready for our top street style pics from the week.

The product is made using ALL Italian leathers and components, the same product used for our Bianca Buccheri styles. The leathers and components are then sent to China or Spain where the product is assembled. The fittings and patterns are still done in Italy so you can expect only the best fits and quality!

Perfect Pedi

Always show off your shoes with perfectly painted toes and feet.

This spring season, why don’t you pass on soft pastel shades, coral tones and your usual “Lincoln Park after Dark” and go for something new on your toes.

With the warmer weather, try out a summer polish trend that’s a bit more exciting. It’s not that we don’t love classic summer colours, it’s just so much more fun to try out a little something new.

From notice me neons to unconventional top coats that will completely alter your polish, be brave and try out a different colour next time you are at the mani/pedi nail polish station.
