Ray Ban Sunglasses from Pretavoir
It’s getting brighter and warmer in Melbourne, and there have several days out where I reprimanded myself for not pulling my sunglasses out – but after so many months of gloom it’s always a struggle to get back into the habit.
The Pretavoir team recently got in touch with me about their new collection and offered to send me a pair to try. I really won’t accept any item from a company unless I’d have bought it with my own money. On top of this; most standard frames are comically large on my small face. These issues are usually enough to stop negotiations with a brand but Pretavoir were keen to work with me to find frames that suited me. I was really impressed when they went to the effort of sourcing these round metal all-black Ray Bans especially for me because apparently the style is no longer being produced. They actually listened when I explained my style and concern over frame and lens size and came to the party in a huge way.
Edit Evening thinks the round shape is a great new look for me (as I typically gravitate towards cats-eye frames) and said they’re his favourite of all my sunglasses.
I’m inclined to agree.
BARNY NAKHLE BLISTER LEATHER PLATFORM SHOES
It’s been months since I’ve bought any fashion for myself. Very little appeals to me at present, but I’m also putting almost every last dollar towards producing my little jewellery collection – launching in five weeks time. Over the last year my work has developed at a rate of knots. I’m extremely excited about the future of my label and although it means I’ve had to sacrifice my love for fashion in order to have undertaken my qualification, it is without a doubt the best decision I ever made for myself. I can’t wait to reveal the new works; it’s just a small debut range to start with but will be added to with regularity.
Tonight while letting myself indulge in some browser window shopping I came across these luxurious lace-up creepers. I’m only recently warming up to derbies and lace-ups; they’ve always felt too much like school shoes to me, but the platform seems to elevate them (!) from that association. I can see these working effortlessly in my wardrobe, perfectly matched back with my blister leather jacket and patina leather leggings, of course.
Orchidee Ring by Estelle Dévé
Long-term Sea Of Ghosts readers will remember Alegorie – the online accessories store I opened several years ago. Over time as my style evolved and my passion for jewellery-making flourished, I chose to return to full time study. Alegorie was no longer my priority and I stopped buying new ranges for the store. It’s been in permanent sale mode for the last 18 months and as I embark on new endeavours, I am hoping to move as much of my remaining stock out as possible.

Ann Demeulemeester Suede Boots
I’m still on the hunt for the perfect pair of flat ankle boots for every day. I don’t anticipate having the budget for my grail Guidi’s any time soon, but progressive high-end retailer LN-CC has these Ann Demeulemeester beauties on sale at the moment – along with a lot of other gorgeous items. Once they discounted all their Guidi boots for a few days. I hesitated and frustratingly missed out on the bargain of a lifetime. So run, don’t walk. Whatever you love is sure not to last long.
