Fashion is making the well needed change for studded grunge to ladylike chic - think cinched waists, corset bodices, simple pumps (forget the 15cm platforms!), glamorous up-do hairstyles & simple make-up. I, as much as the next fashion obsessed girl, have enjoyed wearing grungy ensembles, Balmain-inspired studs and heavy embellished garments & heavy-metal jewellery, but it is really growing a little tired. I've had to buy a few new items for my wardrobe over the past couple of weeks for my new job and have opted for simple, classic, tailored items which I can mix and match with things I already have. I am obsessed with my new black satin blazer, skinny leg black pants and nude & black print dress from Australian chain label, Cue. Not to mention, a fabulous mini-suitcase bag I picked up from a vintage store. Look to fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Grace Kelly for ladylike inspiration.
