Love Misuzi xxx

For many months now I have been wearing my favourite earrings every day which I have to say is rare for me as I like to mix my metals..someday's I'm a gold girl layered in gold necklaces, rings, and earrings (Mr T style) then the next minute I am a silver girl..apparently it has something to do with my star sign??  Personally I just put it down to a girl can never have too many accessories and she may as well wear them! However there's just something so divine about my Misuzi 'kiss me' charm earrings that they have become a bit of a go to for me.

Viewing the stunning range this week for Tiger and Goat left little wonder as to why Misuzi is fast becoming an 'it' brand in accessories with something of a cult following..(me included).  The jewellery is just gorgeous..handmade to order from fine precious metals there is something for every girl..whether you prefer more feminine pieces like the heart collection or more edgy styles like the skull collection, Misuzi has it covered.

Misuzi heart necklace $129 and heart bracelet $99 available at Tiger and Goat
Misuzi hammered bar necklace $109, skull necklace $129 and skull earrings $119 available at Tiger and Goat

What I love most though about Misuzi is not the fact that the designs are "effortlessly cool" (which they are!); that you can wear the pieces individually or layered; that they are reasonably priced; that they are made from fine precious metals..but that they are both personal and meaningful..the gorgeous designer will actually customise your pieces with special dates, names, initials or engraved messages.  Ahh Love Misuzi. xxx

Mini charm earrings $59 available at Tiger and Goat

Double charm message necklaces $89 available at Tiger and Goat

Misuzi wishbone necklace $89, horse shoe necklace $89 and double wing necklace $119 all available at Tiger and Goat

Búl xx

On the weekend we received our much anticipated leather mini skirts, pencil skirts and dresses from Australian label Búl..and they are everything that you could wish for and more.  The leather is super soft; the cuts are super flattering and the price is super reasonable.

Morghella leather skirt $270 available in black at Tiger and Goat

Búl's Autumn Winter 2011 collection is just as gorgeous with fashionable timeless garments that are still so easy to wear and generous on comfort. I am thrilled to be meeting up with the talented designer, Virginia Martin, tomorrow to select pieces from this divine collection for Tiger and Goat.

Seriously Smoking xxx

Glasshouse splice bikini $260 available at Tiger and Goat

I've already noted in an earlier post my enthusiasm for the Zimmermann sisters and their fabulous designs..with this admiration recently having been heightened by the launch of their Cruise 2011 swimwear lookbook.  Shot by Roger Deckker at Hyams beach on the NSW coast..this swim campaign is seriously smoking!!  Nicky Zimmermann stated that they "..wanted a different feel for this campaign and had this idea of shooting against natural elements - rock, sand, sea and sky.."  Well ladies in my opinion it's worked..not only do I want everything that is featured including the jewellery but I also want to holiday on Hyams beach and I want that body too!  How long till Summer again??

Rain, hail or shine xx

With the weather hovering around a chilly 11 degrees in Melbourne today it can sometimes be a bit of a challenge to find something fabulous to wear that looks as amazing as it is warm...and while I adore my sleeveless bright red puffer to wear as I walk my pups around the park in the morning (thank you Goat) it just doesn't cut it for during the day. x 
Enter these two gorgeous knits from Line Knitwear...both are super magnificent (tick) and both are extremely warm (tick).
Austin knit $355
The Austin knit in the latte mix as pictured above is one size fits all and is incredibly snuggly and delicious.  Throw it on over anything and it takes you from freezing to fabulous in seconds.

Matthew cardi $360
The Matthew is an extra long chunky knit cardi complete with shawl collar and a draped open is as incredible as it looks and ridiculously toasty.  So there you have it no excuses..both available now at Tiger and Goat. xxx

Miss Moss x

You may have noticed a bit of a pattern forming here with the occasional inclusion in our blog of the ever fabulous Miss Moss. x  That would be entirely due to my unhealthy obsession with the fashion legend..just one look at my book shelves and you can see any and all biographies ever written about the greatest fashion icon of our times.  So naturally I would need to post some of the amazing photograph's taken of Kate by Mario Testino for Vogue Brazil xx Enjoy

My kind of knit xxx

While I'm more of a warm weather girl myself I do love the clothes of Autumn and Winter and the opportunity to rug up.  So these gorgeous chunky knit cardi's with toggle detail from those fabulous girls at SpencerLacy are my kind of knit.  The hardest choice now is do I buy the black, the nude (as pictured) or the silver??  Be spoilt for choice at Tiger and Goat. xxx

Chunky knit cardi with toggle $190 available at Tiger and Goat.
