What I wore: LMFF 2013

In my last post, I detailed my experience of my very first L'Oreal Paris Runway event as part of this year's LMFF. It was such an incredible time for me, I'm already hanging out for the next one!

I was hoping that the weather was going to be hot because I was intending to wear my sheer silk blouse by Jolet and my favourite Yeojin Bae silk skirt. However, Melbourne had a bit of a cold spell last week and I had to change my original plans.

I decided to wear a short sleeved cashmere sweater to take the chill off the air and a skirt made from a heavier fabric. This turned out to be the perfect choice for the night. It meant I was comfortable and could enjoy the fabulous evening of fashion.  









I'm not usually one for hair accessories, but I simply couldn't resist this divine handcrafted Cathleen Jia piece. I love how it ties up in a bow at the back. It's an incredibly versatile accessory to own as I've even worn it as a belt (see this post).

Have you ever been in a fashion fix because of the weather? 

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday. We're having a quiet family lunch at our house. I'm looking forward to having a relaxing day! What are your plans?

Don't forget to follow me here on the blog and on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook

Wishing you the perfect Easter!

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!
Yours in style

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

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…

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!
The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 










For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette.
