Ralph & I

I fell in love with Ralph several years ago now & this long-winded love affair has been going stronger each day! I'm talking about Ralph Lauren and his fabulous range of classic pieces that just last and last and never so out of style. 

I have shown you some of the Ralph Lauren pieces on some of my blog posts, one of which includes my classic crew neck silk/cashmere sweater (see this post). I purchased this sweater from the DFO (Discount Factory Outlet) in Essendon. It was marked down at a very reasonable price. I love to wear it layered with a shirt underneath. I love the pastel, candy pink shade.


I also showed you my crew neck cable knit, short-sleeved sweater in black, during my own self-taken photo shoot (see this post). I love this sweater because I can layer it & it also stands well on its own. It's a precentage of wool and cashmere and is so warm! I love the detailed rouching on the sleeves. I picked this one up during Ralph Lauren's Winter sales in their gorgeous boutique, located in Collins Street, Melbourne.


Another of my favourite Ralph Lauren sweaters, is the beautiful peachy tone V-neck cable knit in 100% cashmere.  I wore this during the photo shoot my husband & I did a while back, after our wonderful city escape (see this post). I picked this number up on EBay at a fantastic price! 


Ralph Lauren used to send my VIP discount  tokens in the mail, which were so great because I would rock up to the store and purchase some shirts and sweaters at about half their original price. I'm not sure if they send these out anymore. 

Anyway, there's plenty of reasons why I still love Ralph so. The garments have stood the test of time and are so worth the investment. Investment dressing is what I'm all about!

What bargains have you picked up recently from high-end designers?

Hope you have all had a fabulous weekend and, for those of you who live in Melbourne, hope you enjoy the extra time off! 

Yours in style,

Suzi x
