Meet the Muse

Who are you?

My name is Bel and I am a 53 year old mum of two who lives in Prahran Melbourne.

I worked in advertising for years before my family came along. I have been a SAHM mum and care for my dad too with Alzheimer’s.

Where did you grow up and how did that shape you? 

I was born in Melbourne but spent from 7-15 years old in Wodonga, so have had a bit

of city and county upbringing which I think makes me a fairly relaxed casual person.

I grew up with my Dad after my parents divorced so I have been a very independent

person from a young age (as I didn’t have my mum to help me).

What’s your style inspiration?

My style inspiration comes from the many gorgeous women on Instagram.

My style is comfy, casual and relaxed, with a pop of colour and print for fun!

What’s your favourite piece from Marco Polo?

My favourite piece is the elbow elements dress and the elbow

essential knit in coral red, just love that colour!

What’s a day in the life for you?

A day in the life: walk the dog (I am training a Seeing Eye Dog), maybe a run around the

lake (3 times a week). Cook lunch (while in lockdown), housework/food shop/household

management, then cook dinner. Relax with some trashy TV like Survivor!

When did you discover Marco Polo, and

what drew you to the brand?

I have seen Marco Polo on some of my beautiful Instagram friends. I love the colours and

the nice basic pieces in the range. Classics that you can style many ways!
