amuse-bouche  [amyzbuʃ] or amuse-gueule [amyzɡœl] is a single, bite-sized hors d’œuvre.[1] Amuse-bouche are different from appetizers in that they are not ordered from a menu by patrons, but, when served, are done so according to the chef’s selection alone. [source: Wikipedia

Become a BusinessChic fan on Facebook and you'll be kept in the loop with behind-the-scenes updates like this one..

BusinessChic fans on Facebook will have received this update, pictured above, laced with gastronomical-speak as I’d originally intended to do only two posts this week. However, as I happened to receive this fresh sprig of inspiration, courtesy of Western Australia design-duo ofCabbages&Kings, I simply had to whip up and send out this très tiny but tasty amuse-bouche to keep you tided over until mains which I shall serve up on Wednesday.

New visitors to this site might like to first click here for BusinessChic coverage of the LMFF Independent Runway Parade where I spotted this wondrous skirt-suit number by Western Australian design-duo, ofCabbages&Kings.  

I’ve since been lusting after this sexy, sassy number that celebrates a womanly figure but is also office-appropriate in its demure shade of grey.. and I am not the only one. When we caught up at Modern Day Speakeasy 24 Moons over some truly marvellous cocktails, my girlfriends KB and KK Roberts expressed their admiration and curiosity as to where they could find this suit – an answer to which I hope to have an answer to soon.. in the meantime, some words from ofCabbages&Kings on the inspiration behind this  business chic piece of fabulousness – 


The inspiration for the suit was a bird in flight, we looked at the garden as a space and worked it back into our designs.
Here is a picture of the suit and of us.

 – Many thanks to oC&K for taking the time to satisfy my random mid-week fashion question and request for MORE pictures; marvellous!  –

  1. yUmmm. I LOVE THAT SUIT!! It has a definite 40’s feel to it with a modern edge. Loving the peplum thing going on 😀
