When Street Meets Sleek

Miss Chachino, Monika Ceda-cid looking Slender and sleek at the active wear launch at mussen. Monika graced us with her presence wearing a combination of affordable and high-end fashion.


We adored her street, funk, style (as she describes). We particularly noticed her statement yet subtle designer pieces. You can never go wrong with a Marc Jacobs bag and a leather jacket from Chapel St. Melbourne. She says she always completes her look with a striking piece, much like her haute couture gowns, she designs.


Monika and her label ‘Chachino’ are one to watch.

There was an acute attention to detail from the set design to the music production and to the props carried by the models”, said Ashely. “’I truly believe Monica will take Chachino to the next level her designs are beautiful and I wish her all the best”.

Street x Off-duty Dancer

Spotted from across the street, I saw Chris walking with an group of friends who equally matched his street style.


I found out that they had just competed in the final event of the Australian Dance Crew Championships held for the very first time at Canberra’s Play House. Chris and his crew, kstar evolutionz, are from Melbourne and won the national competition. Congratulations!


The day was an intensive competition hence the relaxed style shown by Chris. His rhyme and reason for dressing, is to dress for comfort first. This relaxed look gains more street cred with the carefully curated accessories.


I asked Chris for a Melbourne shopping tip and he directed me to Savers on Sydney Road in Brunswick. I’ve personally been there and can vouch that it is possibly the best vintage store. Essentially it is like our Salvos in Fhyswick but on steroids.


Boho Chic for Summer

This doll was spotted walking on Lonsdale Street to Debacle. Charlotte Fraser expresses her style with a boho inspired dress paired with ankle boots and socks.


This flowy dress was the prefect choice for a warm day that headed into a cool night. The story behind the dress is that it was one of her best friends dresses that she never wore. Charlotte was leant the dress a few years ago and it pretty much never was returned and is now her favourite for casual occasions.


I love charlottes philosophy to dressing “Dress for the occasion and what makes you feel good. Don’t worry about what others think”.
