Autumn brings a lot to look forward to on the sartorial front. As the days get shorter and the nights get longer, Mother Nature puts on a show and flaunts a whole new colour palette of fashion inspo. AW17 is all about deep, rich tones inspired by fiery deciduous leaves, clear, blue skies and lush green grass.BURGUNDYThis wine-coloured hue was seen all over the AW17 Fashion Week runways and is a refreshing change to the sombre black and grey uniform many of us adopt during the cooler months.Inject some warmth into cool winter days with this timeless Knit Tweed Style Jacket by Italy ($199), stocked exclusively by Marshmellow in Australia. The frayed hem and cuffs give it a playful feel by creating subtle movement whilst the classic cut makes it a transitional piece you’ll love for seasons to come. Pair with a white tee and dark indigo denim for day or throw it over a mini dress teamed with boots to combat the cold on date nights.Knit Tweed Style Jacket by ItalyNAVYChristian Dior once said, “Among all colours, navy blue is the only one which can ever compete with black – it has all the same qualities.” We have to agree.Right now, we’re coveting these Lena Side Zip Heel boots by Maya McQueen ($319). The mid-height block heel will take you effortlessly from day to night and can be worn with almost anything from jeans to denim skirts to knit dresses. Make the gorgeous jewel tone pop by pairing with white, grey or our other fave colour this season, khaki.KHAKIKhaki has come a long way from its drab military roots. Synonymous with street style, it’s cool and understated for AW17 with chunky knits and oversized coats. Looking for a versatile piece to upgrade your winter wardrobe? We’re in love with this comfy wool-blend Stripe Rib Knit by Italy ($185). Slip it on over skinny jeans for weekend brunch with the girls or a black leather mini when the sun goes down.Check out more burgundy, navy and khaki pieces from the AW17 collection in store now or at https://marshmellow.com.au/

Re post from the amazing Iamjillwright.https://iamjillwright.com/2017/05/10/more-than-black/I love fashion: From the Elmo/Sesame Street/ 80’s inspired wave of bloggers through to the high-end, ever so expensive pieces that we all lust after. With the emergence of so many eclectic fashion curators, I feel classic styling and strong base trends have been somewhat lost along the way. So where do you go for some solid guidance? What should we be wearing for Autumn/Winter? Is black the only go-to colour for safe fashion choices?I often turn to my best friend Vogue, but on this occasion I met with store owner and fashion aficionado, Leeann Edelmuth. She comes with a wealth of experience and regularly pops over to Paris to collect a few pieces for our upcoming seasons – if anyone can forecast a trend, its Leeann!
On a beautifully crisp Tuesday afternoon, I wandered into Leeann’s gorgeous store in the heart of Woollahra, Marshmellow. Her space is a treasure trove of beautifully hand-picked, on-trend pieces from around the world. From gorgeous ‘wear everywhere’ boots to sparkly Parisian clutches, through to key styling pieces and wardrobe staples.Marshmellow’s cliental is a diverse mix of ages and styles, as Leeann expertly bridges the gap between trend and price.“The success of the store has been price. We are competitive in price to Country Road and Sportsgirl. Our price point – I try not to go over $200 for fully imported pieces”“I don’t have 100 of everything. That’s the success. If you get it, you get it. When it’s gone, it’s gone.”Clearly the success of the store is also Leeann’s keen eye for predicting a trend and translating them to our Australian seasons.“I don’t like anything that’s mainstream. It has to have an edge. Sometimes it doesn’t work because some huge trends in Europe just don’t make it to Australia. I really try and find a point of difference.”“I’d rather travel 4 times a year and get the exclusive European stock.”“I never re-do any styles I have done the previous season”So what are we looking for Autumn/Winter 2017? Leeann explains to me that velvet and pleats should be high on our lists. In terms of colour, look for burgundy, khaki and navy – “Its beyond black”With a busy store to run and 2 kids (Leeann jokes it’s actually three kids including her husband) where does she find the motivation to be so effortlessly fashionable? The answer is she loves her job! The adrenaline from finding amazing, affordable pieces is responsible for her masses of energy.“Most people would hate it but I love it. I go and I search for the right piece. Everyone thinks it’s so glamorous – and yes I love it but its 24hrs in the air, 24hrs home and I’m there for 3 days. It gives me the biggest adrenaline – I don’t suffer from jet lag or anything because I’m pumped from the trip.” (On her trips to Paris)Leeann goes on to explain to me she buys 6 months ahead for each season. She filters the pieces (from Paris and Italy) through the store around her selection of locally branded stock. She has a large store-room out the back… Which I would love to raid!
And in true Jill style, I can’t go into a beautiful store and not leave with something new so I picked myself out a piece from Marshmellow that clearly is not meant for Autumn/Winter in Sydney – but how gorgeous are the sleeves?! Ha, ha. This piece is the Tie-dye Lace Sleeve top available HERE. But as mentioned above, once it’s gone, its gone! So be quick!!You can visit Leeann at Marshmellow located at: Shop 4, 156 Edgecliff Rd, Woollahra. Or check out her edit online HERE.

The latest trend is taking the fashion world by storm for this Spring/Summer season. It might take you back on memory lane and remind you of those days back at school. But this signature schoolgirl look has gotten a high fashion treatment. Mostly pleats aren’t welcomed into everyone’s wardrobe however here are a few tips that can help you wear pleats in a fashionable way that is bound to turn heads.Working with long tunic tops and adding to a pleated statement skirt can work really well as the tunic fits well over the hips. Ladies now we don’t have to worry about those bulky hiplines!Another great tip is to find a pleated piece that works on angles. When the pleats are set on an angle the fabric naturally flows away from the body and curves around the silhouette nicely.Vertical Pleats have always been a traditional trend, however there are plenty of ways to welcome newness. Try pleated skirts with unique prints and various colours.Pleats add sophistication and femininity to your wardrobe and can range from strong knife pleats to add that extra definition to the more petite folds for a more chic feminine look. What’s your pleat? Check down below for our new collections and inspiration images.
