Fashion – Happy Birthday Mussen!!

Today I’ve teamed up with Canberra fashion boutique Mussen to celebrate their 1st birthday and what a successful first year it has been for Zimona and her team!  Zimona started her business from humble beginings as an eBay store stocking a selection of designer and more obsure labels.  Following on from her online success she opened Mussen last year and has never looked back! 

One visit to Mussen and you will instantly understand why it’s been such a hit amongst local fashionistas.  What excites me most is that they stock quality Australian brands that are difficult to find (physically) in Canberra, these include Stylestalker, Staple the Label, Hunt No More and Bebe.  Though I’ve been enjoying these brands online for several years there is nothing quite like trying before you buy!  In addition to the well known Aussie brands, they also stock a range of items picked and sourced from overseas suppliers, perfect for a unique outfit at affordable prices.

And to complete their repertoire of offerings they also have an instore brow service meaning you can pop in for 10 mins and get your brows expertly shaped and tinted, leaving the shop well dressed and well groomed!

Mussen is located at 17 Mort St, Canberra City

Opening times are:
Tue – Thu: 11:00 am – 6:00 pm
Fri: 11:00 am – 8:00 pm
Sat: 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Sun: 11:00 am – 3:00 pm

Today I’ve chosen an outfit that is a little bit sensual but not overly sexy.  I love balancing hip hugging skirts with looser fitting blouses as it’s not only comfortable but also more flattering on most figures.  The sheer nature of the top lends seduction to the look where the soft drapery of the skirt lends femininity even to a black on black outfit.  Accessories of gold also go a long way in adding “Hollywood” appeal and luxury.
