It’s Week 20 of the BusiChic Little Black Dress (LBD) Project where I’m wearing a LBD to work once a week for the whole year to share 52 different ways of styling this staple for the office. This week, I’m checking out a new store near my workplace that’s keeping me inspired; SWOON.
Founded by Brem of Elgar & Lyle (photographed with me in this fashion week post) with Keegan of Margery Daw (I wore one of her frocks when I won a competition to attend LMFF with nova, random post here), SWOON is a space that makes shoppers do just that. I popped in for a friendly visit and ended up falling for the warm and quirky visual merchandising of a clever selected range from emerging designers.
Oh and BusiChic, are you a brunch person like me? If you are and if you like Richmond’s Friends of Mine – you’ll love SWOON that is decorated in a similar vein that makes you feel welcome and just want to spend tim- Oh and I bought something!
Check out this jacket that I feel is totally channeling Lee-Lin Chin in its biker-chic/assymetrical-awesomeness!
If I was wearing this ensemble to the boardroom, I change up those knee-high boots in place of an ankle boot or pump. However as I’ve styled it here, I’d classify this as a creative take on Contemporary Business Wear – what do you think??
Fierce shoulder-blade detail is so Lee-Lin don’t you think?
I like how the jacket can be zipped up and collar arranged to create a myriad of looks. However do you think that the magenta lipstick is too much? Should I’ve stuck to my usual neutral lip?
Jacket is vivacita from a selection at SWOON, LBD by Bento, earrings from Sportsgirl but these made my ears weep so you’ve been warned if you have sensitive ears too; compendium from oroton and orthotic boots by ziera.
SWOON is at 109 Auburn Road, Hawthorn.
