Welcome to Like A Star
"When you look good we feel good, when we feel good you create the energy and when we create the energy anything is possible." - Belinda Pendrey, Like A Star Founder.
Like A Star is much more than a fashion boutique, it's a place where you can flourish and see your full potential in a fun and inspiring way.
Like A Star's carefully curated collection showcases both international designers and Australian fashion brands, containing wardrobe essentials and hand-picked statement pieces with personality and pizazz to help you stand out from the masses and illuminate your individual style.
15 years, some 5500 days and who knows how many hours and sleep deprived nights… No I'm not referring to becoming a mother for the first time, I'm referring to that date in which my first job in the fashion industry started.
I used to think that giving my all and working for someone else was hard... Nooo it's not! Not compared to what is now affectionately known in my household as ‘the war zone’ of business in fashion!
Recently my husband and I took a couple of days off to regroup and rest up in preparation for the upcoming launch of our new webpage and Eboutique. Small business is tough at the best of times but when your business is growing, changing and evolving you’re pushed and challenged beyond imagination.
Over a few glasses of vino I opened up to my husband and jokingly laughed about the war zone that is the fashion business.
You see, you've got your troops, those that would put their life on the line for you and those that you would rather send back to the homeland and trade in for new ones.
You've got your allies and enemies, partners that are willing to work with you and those that can't stand the sight of you. There are the lovers and the fighters. Who can you trust? Like in the great wars that make up our past I'm sure the Generals asked, what are we fighting for?
I often ask myself, in this crazy war of fashion, What am ‘I’ fighting for ??? As we celebrate our fourth birthday at LAS, with an amazing team of troops and allies, I know exactly why it is, even after all this time that I jump out of bed every morning, do my hair and put on my heels... Fashion speaks volumes, and when great fashion translates into the real world it’s a beautiful thing.
This week was just another week in the war zone. I hit the ground running… busy times INSTORE dressing clients in new season wardrobes, boring BORING computer training and I was blessed to view WINTER 15 and SUMMER 15 collections.
I also managed to squeeze in some much needed quality Mumma and Luca time too, after all isn't any war fought for the benefit of our future generation?
And while we’re on the topic of our much loved little ones, we just received a drop of the most adorable Mini Melissa shoes for girls. Perfect for the petite Miss who knows you’re never too young to start ‘stylin it’. In matte pink or navy they’re too beautiful for words… pop in and see for yourself.
WHAT I WORE THIS WEEK...
Loving Trelise Cooper’s new seasons prints… Cooper Atomic Blast jacket and Flowering pants paired down with the freshness of a classic white shirt from CP Shades.
Have a beautiful week trendsetters and remember… everybody deserves to shine like a star!
