Fashion as Art

An amazing online purchase arrived in the mail a little while back; a sleeveless, silk digital printed shirt by Jolet. Jolet is the eponymous label of Jolet Ucchino, a Melbourne based designer, who has received accolades for her outstanding designs and digital prints.  

This digital print, entitled Lucid Dream, encapsulates the very essence of Summer; warm, balmy nights, silhouettes walking along the beach, the sunset reflecting on the waters below.  




Every collection created by Jolet is based on the emotive side of art. Moods captured within each piece, allow you to interpret the artistic meaning that lies therein.




Besides the very fact this garment is made from the highest quality silk and the most technologically advanced digital printing techniques, what I love most about this garment, is its versatility. The range of styling options are endless. I get rather excited when I find a garment that works with many things already in my existing wardrobe!

I'm really looking forward to seeing Jolet's new Autumn/Winter 12 collection! If the previous collection is anything to go by, I'm certain this next one will be just as amazing!    

Do you own a garment that is a work of art, like I do? I'd love to know all about it!

Yours in style,

What I'm Wearing: Jolet Lucid Dream silk sleeveless shirt (available now online), RM Williams jeans, Repetto Norma Decol AD suede/patent leather flats in cuba-donald.

  7. I'm absolutely in love with that blouse! I actually bought one just like it awhile ago and had to return it because...well I have a shopping addiction and I'd overspent haha. But I always regretted it! So pretty!

    1. Aww..that's terrible about your blouse. Shopping can be quite addictive though & sometimes we can get lost in the moment. You never know, you may see something like it again down the track. I do enjoy browsing, but it's hard when you find something you absolutley adore and it's way beyond your price range!!

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

Caring for your Woollen Sweaters

It always irks me whenever a sales consultant tells me that you cannot  hand wash woollens and to follow the directions on the label. For years, I have been hand washing my knitwear and ignored the care label reading 'Dry clean'. The majority of my sweaters are made by high end designers, such as Ralph Lauren Collection and Burberry, and because they have been taken care of, still look brand new. 

Here's what I do to keep my sweaters looking fabulous. If the sweater is 100% cashmere you need to fill a small tub of lukewarm water using a small amount of Wool Mix. I ALWAYS use Martha Gardner, Eucalyptus. I wash the sweater by gently moving the garment through the water and gently squeezing the sweater, but never pulling or tugging. Then I leave the sweater in the water to soak for about five minutes (not always needed-do skip this step if the garment is not heavily soiled). Afterwards, I rinse the sweater in lukewarm water until the water comes out clear. Do not lift the swea…

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!
The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 










For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette.
