Everything looks better in leather

Buyer's Edit, Fashion


It’s that time of year again. Summer slips are shoved to the back of the closet and winter woolies become an everyday item. And it’s about this time of year the quest to find a perfect leather jacket begins. Open fronted or zipped? Cropped or oversized? Brown, white or classic black? The options are endless!

We can’t claim it as this seasons staple, but that’s simply because it’s an every-season essential. Year in and year out we see leather featuring at fashion festivals across the globe, worn both on and off the runway. It’s that timeless appeal, the fact you can effortlessly throw it on with a pair of boyfriend jeans or transform it to night-time over that classic little black dress that we love so dearly.


So while all of you have been busy doing the annual wardrobe swap-around, we’ve been tirelessly seeking out this seasons best cuts and colors to make that daunting hunt a teeny bit easier. Drop into our Sydney Road store or check us out online to see why we’ve gone hell-for-leather. Whether it be the classic jacket, a pair of ballet flats in caramel tones good enough to eat or a carry-all tote, we’ve got it and we want you to have it. And just to add to the excitement, we’ve included all leather in our 30% off sale! But don’t leave it to the last minute, sale ends Sunday!

Join our leather obsession. History shows it’ll be forever on trend.

Where There’s A Chill There’s A Way

Fashion, The Dressing Room

With all the heat we’ve encountered as of late in Melbourne, we thought why not cool down and take it to the streets where at this moment, the trees are bare & a cold chill is lingering around?

These ladies prove that where there is a chill, there’s always a way to look fabulous!

Something Old, Something New

Fashion, The Dressing Room

We often find ourselves getting overly excited at the thought of something new.

A new colour, a new style, a new season, a new day!

At the moment we’re finding it hard to strip back and flaunt our new spring pieces

(with Melbourne’s weather up to it’s usual tricks) so the next best thing is to mix them in with our favourite winter styles.

We’re pairing the new Carrie blue jeans and Nana stripe t-shirt with what had to be our winter favourite,

the Rayner merino wool cardigan (we have lived in this blanket cardigan).

Now the sun most probably will come and go as it generally does,

in that case strip off the cardigan and you’re good to go!

They may be a season apart but it doesn’t mean you can’t clash these 2 prints.

The cocoa fits in perfectly with the neutral colours in the nordic print.

An all time staple favourite of ours at The Dressing Room, the Aspen ballet flat.

A must have in your shoe collection, the simple black LEATHER flat!
