plaid

I have such a soft spot for anything plaid, mainly skirts and dresses. The king of plaid was the late and legendary Lee Alexander McQueen himself, who had a penchant for plaid as well.

It's so wonderful that Alexander's legacy has been able to continue with Sarah Burton, appointed head designer of the brand back in May, 2010. Such big shoes to fill in my opinion, which I believe she has done to an extent. With due respect, of course, Alexander remains irreplaceable.

Sarah has achieved many awards, amongst her most significant, an O.B (Order for the British Empire), awarded in June, 2012. Just what did she do to be awarded such an honorable accolade? Sarah Burton has made such an impression on the British fashion industry and this has lead to her being recognised for her vital contribution. I'm certain Alexander McQueen would be most proud. 

Please enjoy these images of my favourite looks from the MCQ collections of Alexander McQueen.







I hope you have been enjoying your weekend.
Life is extremely busy for me right now since I am back working full time, teaching Year 1 children. It's really nice to have the best of both worlds, with my day job and writing to you here on the blog. I am truly grateful for all of your support!

Don't forget to follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too. 

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&…
