LBD Project Launch

Last night, I attended the launch of the Little Black Dress Project at Melbourne Central Community Garden. The launch was a celebration of Cheryl Lin's LBD Project exhibition, her fabulous LBD Project book, and Business Chic's 3rd birthday! Now that's three great reasons to celebrate! 

The LBD Project is all about one little black dress and an innovative girl, Cheryl Lin, who wears it to work once a week for an entire year, and manages to find 52 different ways of styling it, either by adding a mixture of shirts and blouses or by mixing it up with accessories and shoes. I often find it quite the challenge to style the same dress in varied ways, so I feel that the LBD Project book will be an invaluable resource for me. Click this link to pre-order your copy today! It would make a great Mother's Day gift too, so why not order two copies?

It was really great to see so many familiar faces at the launch; people who I hadn't seen in so long. I loved catching up with everyone during the night and, of course, celebrating this fabulous achievement with Cheryl. Would you believe that Cheryl managed to write her book in the space of only two months, while continuing to work full-time in her day job? That's that's dedication for you. Cheryl Lin is one hell of an inspiration to what we can achieve if we set our minds to it.
























The LBD Project Exhibition is open to the public, is FREE and runs for the entire month of March as part of the Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

This week as been so crazy at work and home! We have had our beloved dog, Scruffy, in and out of the veterinarian clinic, as he has been really ill. He will undergo more tests tomorrow. Let's hope we find out what is wrong with him so we can help him to get back to his happy, healthy self once more. He's really my most loyal and loving best friend! I love him to bits. 


Keep your eyes peeled on my blog for my next post with lots more pics and details about my outfit!

Have a great Sunday and enjoy the coming week!

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…

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…
