Well the typical aussie male still has no idea what fashion is unless he is gay or has gay friends. They only get their ideas on what to wear from the back of a weet-bix packet. Or mabye its the vegemite ad.

I never let my dad buy clothes alone, or worse, with my mother! It's the only way to do it...

Please lets try to use recent photos of 'Strayian' fashion - it's giving a grossely dated and inaccurate 'behind-ish' sense of fashion. The pictures above from vogue.com.au show outfits that wouldn't be worn today - especially all the boho cra p (the girl who looks like she walked through the accessories department with super-glue on her). The blazer is ok, but because it has nautical tendancies (we are in high summer right now - pushing resort wear)

Basically Melburnians are in my opinion the most stylish and fashion conscious of Australian cities though perhaps this is in largepart because the weather permits, it is a cooler climate than most of the other beachy cities (Melbourne still have nice beaches however).

Melbourne is classic, but not-conservative (different silhouettes- not traditional (extra long tops were very popular around four years ago))eclectic, innovative (skinny jeans are old news), dressed up casual, neat, layered, black and plain.

Basically Melbournites concentrate on the overal outfit, the total image and the final look. For instance, you don't look at someone here and think that a certain print on their skirt stands out or that there jumper is nice, you see the bag, the shoes, the top, the jewellery, the hair, the sunnies and so on. The whole thing works.

I guess it is similar to New York meets Paris or something. Bit of quirky classicism.

The purple dress in post 113 is from a shop called witchery. See http://www.witchery.com.au/www/136/1..._1001236_.html in violet.

I like witchery although it tends to be overpriced.

It is like a fashion orientated younger country road.

www.countryroad.com.au if you want to get the idea.
