Eugenie Cashmere

Did you know that cashmere is actually ten times warmer than wool? Cashmere comes from the soft, downy fleece of goats living in Inner Mongolia. Being someone who really feels the cold, cashmere is the only thing that gets me through the cold winters. Without it, I don't know what I'd do. I simply could not survive.

So where do I purchase the majority of my cashmere items? Let me share a little secret of mine. In Melbourne, there is a very special boutique which specialises in cashmere. I'm talking about none other than Eugenie Cashmere. Eugenie Cashmere used to be called 8 Inkerman, since this is where their first boutique was situated.  When 8 Inkerman moved premises last year from 8 Inkerman Street, St.Kilda to 457 High Street, Prahan East, they renamed their boutique Eugenie Cashmere, which is the name of their label.



























Eugenie Cashmere have a wide selection of garments in many different styles, such as round and V-neck sweaters through to limited edition pieces, as seen in my recent post (last seen here). Garments are available for both men and women in sizes ranging from S to XXL(selected styles). They also stock accessories, such as scarves, socks, dressing gowns and slippers, as well as items which help you to care for and protect your cashmere.

Eugenie cashmere's sales staff are friendly, approachable and ready to assist you with whatever query you may have, whether it be a question about a style or colour that suits you or a question on how to care for your cashmere.

Great news arrived in my mail box today!! Eugenie Cashmere are having a Winter Cashmere SALE which starts tomorrow, Thursday, 19th July. You can shop instore or online with discounts of up to 50% off selected styles.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you have any questions. I highly recommend paying Eugenie Cashmere a visit to check out their gorgeous boutique and cashmere garments for yourself. But be warned!! I'll guarantee you'll get hooked like me. 

Are you enjoying your week so far? I'm back teaching again after a two week break. It will take a little while to get back into the full swing of things, especially the early mornings!

Yours in style,

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…

Update on Ralph Lauren in Australia

Most of you guys know how very fond I am of Ralph Lauren clothing, particularly the runway womenswear Collection label. I have published multiple posts showcasing this iconic American brand. The impeccable quality, fit and style of the Collection label is second to none-the creme de la creme, shall we say. I think the Ralph Lauren Purple Label for women, now named Collection, has the best slim fit cashmere sweaters on the luxury designer market today. I own several pieces. But now that's about to change. 

Why, you ask? Because Ralph Lauren Melbourne, Australia, is no longer going to carry the luxury Collection label. That's right folks. You heard it right. 

On a recent birthday stay in Melbourne earlier on in May, I visited the Ralph Lauren's Flagship Store on the Paris end of Collins Street. I had saved up my hard earned money to purchase another slim fit 100% cashmere sweater in Lux Tan. I looked around in the store eager with anticipation, hoping to find the sweater in qu…
