For the third consecutive day I’m housebound with a sick child – well sort of! I managed to sneak out yesterday for a not-to-be-missed shopping extravaganza.
Once a year a handful of girls are invited into the home of a friend, Maddy, who owns French Pony boutique in Brighton, to get our hands on some of the goodies she has culled from her three wardrobes. Yes you read correctly, THREE robes full of designer gear – you wouldn’t expect anything less from a stylist with her years of experience.
I did mention I am trying to save so I took $100 with me (last year I spent $300 in the blink of an eye) and had to make the best of it! Let me tell you I shed a few tears over some of the goodies I walked away from including a jewelled box clutch and sheer Armani shirt. You’ll see some of the goodies over the coming weeks – you know I can’t help myself!
A long, lean silhouette created by a fur-lined knit like this is back in the fashion spotlight. Threw on a metallic belt to accentuate my waist, paired it with Sass & Bide faux-leather jeans, Wittner boots and a splash of red. Polished off with my favourite raffia clutch.
While I was lying in bed at 5am listening to a cacophony of coughing, God gave me a huge vision download about my little fashion blog. The idea is cutting edge (well he is the creator of the universe) and incredibly exciting and you guys will love it – I’ll share it with you when he starts putting it in place. And now you’re Looking Good Girls!

you always look so good in ur clothing, but what about us gals that arent so.. tall or SLENDER???
Thanks for your lovely, kind words Amanda! After I recovered from bulimia I expanded to a size 16 which did make looking my best challenging. But with the average Australian woman now a size 14, retailers are having to pull up their socks and produce a greater variety of clothes to suit different sizes and shapes. The best thing you can do is highlight your best assets and learn to camouflage the areas you’re not so fond of. There are plenty of little tricks to draw attention to and from certain areas! Gals with more shapely bums and hips generally look much better in skirts or dresses than jeans. But it’s important to pick a fabric and shape that flatters rather than clings.
