Classic Style

Investing in classics is my style philosophy. Over the years, I have made several fashion faux pas. Not any more. 

So what is classic style? The Oxford dictionary sums it up quite well, "classic: (Of a garment or design) of a simple, elegant style not greatly subject to changes in fashion: this classic navy blazer."

Whenever I invest in a classic garment,it's reassuring to know that it will be a garment which I can rely on time and time again, despite the ever-changing trends in fashion. It's a stayer, both reliable and functional. 

On the top of my list of classics is the cashmere sweater. Cashmere is ten times warmer than wool and doesn't have the itch factor which is a characteristic of wool. It is soft to the touch and luxurious to wear.



  
After doing a check of the classics I have and still need, I realised that I didn't own a classic black crew neck long-sleeved sweater. I have my eye on the Ralph Lauren Black Label cable knit sweater, as pictured on Taylor Swift. I know I cannot go wrong with this choice. 

Would you rather invest in classics?

I cannot wait to get my hair done tomorrow! What are you up to?

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!

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&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo.
