Ebony & Ivory

One of my favourite songs from my childhood would have to be Ebony & Ivory, written by Paul McCartney, not because I am huge fan of his, but because the lyrics speak volumes for how we should treat eachother, no matter who we are, where we come from or how we look. The message is about living in harmony together.

So what's that got to to do with this blog post? Well, it has to do with something I found in the bottom of a plastic bag which was hidden at the top of my wardrobe while tidying up the house.

As I opened up the plastic bag, I rummaged through the clothing inside and there on the bottom, was my first ever Ebony & Ivory loveheart cashmere sweater which was a birthday gift from my husband from several years ago. What on earth was it doing in the bottom of a plastic bag? Well, that bag was meant to go to charity, except I had forgotten all about it.











This sweater had been so well loved that it started to become thin and there were several tiny holes beginning to appear. With a little TLC and needle and thread, I stitched up the tiny holes and restored the sweater back to its original glory.

I love the hearts on the front and the little grey deer with a tiny pink heart. The cashmere is so soft and cosy because the sweater has actually been made inside out. I purchased it from Eugenie Cashmere, who at the time were known as 8 Inkerman. I will soon be sharing something about Eugenie Cashmere, I'm so excited!

I hope you have been enjoying your weekend so far. I spent my day getting pampered at my hair salon, then I picked up my new Arabella Ramsay jeans from my tailor in Sandringham. Afterwards, my husband and I perused a few shops along Bay Street in Brighton. It really was a wonderful day!

Yours in style,
