I've got to tell you about a designer which I think has the best contemporary cashmere around; Banjo & Matilda. You may have seen fashionistas and celebs wearing sweaters with a skull and crossbones logo & B & M, their trademark design. Banjo & Matilda also use two kisses, stitched into their garments, for a really cute touch.

Banjo & Matilda was launched in 2008, by Belinda MacPherson and is made and designed in Bondi Beach, Australia. Belinda designs "for real life and a love of absolute comfort and longevity. Simplicity with a generous serve of discreet luxury makes me happy, and I am guessing/hoping/knowing you'll love it too". 1
What I really love about Banjo & Matilda's designs is that they reflect an easy-going, chic attitude, which is what really appeals to me. Belinda's garments are very wearable and versatile. Take for instance the Ultimate V, available in a myriad of seasonal colours. This can be worn casually with jeans and flats, then dressed up for evening wear. Just add some heels and you're good to go.

I don't actually own any Banjo & Matilda yet, but I have this fabulous designer on my wish list in CAPITAL LETTERS!! They offer free postage on all domestic orders within Australia. You can purchase Banjo & Matilda's range of clothing and accessories if you live outside of Australia as well, and it's free if you spend $500.00. All garments purchased online come in a gorgeous brown box, tied with a coordinating ribbon. Sounds divine, doesn't it?
It's "hump day" today guys and there's only two more days left of work for me. Tomorrow will be a very long day/night as we have our school's art show. Let's hope time flies as I really am in desperate need of a holiday!! By the way, I am hoping I can continue my blog while I travel. I'd love to share with you some of the highlights and perhaps some boutiques I discover along the way.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
Yours in style,
