Despite being on the fashion scene since 2011, it’s taken me up until last weekend to discover Rebecca Vallance. The Australian born designer started as a fashion publicist before turning to creating her own brand that has grown from a small local clothing line to an international presence, being stocked in stores like Harvey Nichols and Intermix, as well as on luxury online stores like net-a-porter.
Of her clothing you can expect structured feminine pieces, that while ladylike are not ultra-dainty, but movable stylish garments that cater to the modern woman. You can also expect lots of flamenco-style ruffles and pleats for added texture and character.
Though the designs are undeniably great, their price point is also something to look to as it’s not excessively expensive – at least not compared to some other designers.

There’s a new denim sheriff in town and it goes by the name of RE/DONE. Founded by Sean Barron and Jamie Mazur, RE/DONE is so much more than a denim company, having first started online before growing into the e-commerce brand it is today.
While I’ve never really been crazy about jeans – I only own one pair – when I first saw their jeans, there was something about them that I couldn’t ignore, so now naturally I’m in need of practically every pair they make, including one very chic denim mini skirt that reminds me of teenage style years. They recently started selling on net-a-porter (which is where I actually discovered them a few weeks ago – and yes my wish list is full of their pieces) and I’ve been spotting their jeans everywhere, ever since.
You’re sure to be seeing a lot more of RE/DONE in the future. Check them out here and here.

A day late but it doesn’t matter because we celebrate Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen every day.
I can’t wait to see what more great style and fashion they’ll show in the coming years.
I’ve been in love with Mansur Gavriel ever since they first launched on net-a-porter. And though it took me some time to admit it, I’ve been in love with mini bags for a while too. I love the unique shapes and lines that Mansur Gavriel products have, and I love how they branched out from their iconic bucket bags, to chic footwear that is just as stylish and classic. With the case of mini bags, I just love how miniature and small they are and how cute they look.
So imagine my delight when doing my weekly perusal, I came across Mansur Gavriel’s latest offering: the Sun Mini Mini. Sun Mini Mini has probably got to be the cutest mini bag range I’ve ever seen (sorry Fendi). Everything from the size, to the drawstring, right down to the trademark bow detail, I am in love.
What’s more, these cute bags come in a variety of colours… and guess what? Yes, I want them all…
There have been a lot of beautiful shiny things on net-a-porter recently and I couldn’t just keep them to myself. Though I’d say my taste in jewellery has always remained pretty consistent, as I’ve gotten older I’ve seen that there’s a very specific type of jewellery that drives me while. Dainty, delicate small pieces that are so cute and feminine yet understated and not too flashy – especially when it comes to earrings.
But the thing I love the most about all these beautiful shiny things? They’re just so nice to look at, and it’s as simple as that.
It’s been a while since I’ve shopped at Jack Wills, but after having a quick nosy on their site the other day, I’ve seen it’s time to end my self-imposed JW hiatus because (like always) they have loads of great stuff that’s made their way to onto my wishlist. Check them out below.

“We will not fail. We will not go down. We will fight the fight. There’s always a solution.”
Kerry Washington is the resident cover girl for net-a-ports online magazine, The Edit, and omg is she a stunner! We know that looks aren’t exactly everything, but as this is a fashion blog, aesthetics really are kinda, sorta everything (and as expected we were not disappointed!).
In the magazine, Kerry talks about Scandal (natch), being a woman/working mother in the industry, as well as giving a little insight into her new production company named after the street her mother grew up on in New York.
This was such an inspiring and beautiful spread that most definitely reignited my loved and admiration for the actress.
Talking about Scandal, last Saturday was spent binge watching and catching up on the last few episodes and omg has it been all kinds of juicy scandalousness. We can’t wait to see how the season will come to an end, but we’re super excited to find out!
