French Sole AW19-Why you will want to kick off your heels!

by

French Sole AW19 collection is the perfect reason to kick off your high -heels and swap for flats! Not an easy statement for me to make as there was a time when I would only wear 5″ heels. Times have changed, however, and I can’t imagine my shoe-closet without flats.

French Sole SS19 collection

by

French Sole SS19 collection is finally here!!! I'm very excited to share their latest out-of-this-world image campaign shot by my husband Gregory Michael King.   I've been a big fan of the stylish and very comfortable FS flats for a long time now.

Vintage fashion blog – the reason behind mine

A quick introduction to my new readers!

My name is Dominique de Merteuil and I’m the creator of It’s Beyond My Control, a vintage fashion blog that I started back in 2012.

The ABC Australian TV show is based on the series of detective stories entitled  Phryne Fisher Mysteries written ...

Nevertheless, the amount of e-mails where I’m asked to RSVP to a party, exhibition, show, opening of a new venue etc. scares me more than just a little, as there’s a lot of effort in preparing for ...

Veroni Deco Designs

by

If I had to describe Veroni Deco designs with only few words it would be visionary couture-extraordinaire. I’m a huge fan of Veroni’s latest all-red collection entitled “ The Chastity of Jessica Rabbit” and if I could I would buy every single one of her couture dresses, as I wouldn’t be able to pick a favourite one… It’s Beyond My Control. I ...

Take me to the ballroom – The power of the red couture dress!

by

"Dress shabbily and they remember the dress; dress impeccably and they remember the woman." - Coco Chanel The colour red has had an unrivalled reign in fashion and couture at least, ever prepared to make a bold statement, clearly has had red raised as its poster child. If you’ve been paying attention, as I have, to the collections of Dior, Elie Saab, ...
