Hallo Dahlings, I’m Rachelle (pronounced as Rachel, not Rochelle… cheers for that Mum + Dad!) and I’m a 27 year old Aussie girl living in Sydney.

So, why PINK SUEDE? Let’s just cut to the chase here, PINK is my all time fave colour. Ask all my friends and family which colour best describes me and they will tell you. I’m a bit of a pink fan. Which then brings me to SUEDE… This material represents the place I spend most, the sole of my dance shoe and in turn my heart and soul! I’ve been ballroom dancing since the age of 6 and have worked my way up the ranks to become the current Australian Professional Ballroom champion. A title I hold dearly with my dance partner of 14 years and boyfriend of 11 years, Steve. We live, eat and breathe dance so it only felt fitting that this had something to do with the name of my blog 🙂

Dancing is not only my passion but it’s also my career and with it I am lucky enough to travel all over the world competing and performing in places like Asia, the United Kingdom, Europe and America. I decided to create PINK SUEDE to document and share the inspiration I get whilst travelling and at home in Australia. This blog is just a little sneak peek into the things I love and I hope they inspire you too!
