Hey there Michi Girl!

Welcome back to a full-time working week of Business Chic! The forecast for the start of this week  is looking bright and sunny for Business Chic’s hometown of Melbourne and I’m not just talking about the weather. Over the weekend, while lamenting the retirement of one of my favourite weekend paper columnists, I was simply stoked to find that dear Michi Girl the harbinger of weather, fashion and other secret afternoon delights from Melbourne town and beyond has a book out TODAY! Titled What on Earth Are You Wearing? I anticipate that this stocking-stuffer/page-turner will be full of deliciously wicked humour and beautiful illustration-come-collages by the ridiculously talented Kat Macleod that stop up my heart. So as Mariah Carey’s Christmas carole album hits the decks at a shopping mall near you, I know that I’ll  be singing “Dear Michi Girl, all I want for Christmas is you” … and an 80mm lens for my camera because that’s what I hear The Sartorialist uses.

Fabulous cat-eye-style sunglasses are a stylish way of adding personality to a workwear ensemble.

Based in Camberwell, Erin likes to get her coffee from Kathy at The Lazy Cat Deli Cafe.

Erin likes perfumes by Marc Jacobs; her current favourite is Lola.

Pencil skirt with side-ruffle detail is a versatile number that is perfect for the bureau.

Lovely t-bar Mary-Janes are a welcome alternative to the classic pump and what character! The mid-heel height makes these perfect for work-on-the-go also.


  1. I should be working on revamping my cover letter, but here I am… browsing your site for Inspiration… hehe.

    She look’s great! Girly, stylish yet professional – which is the style I want to channel.
