It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas







Yesterday, I picked up my Christmas present to myself from Burberry. Intially. I never really intended upon getting myself anything, but knew I wanted something new to wear for Christmas Day. After I picked up my garment, I decided it would go under the Christmas tree for me to open on Christmas Day.

I ordered my Christmas present online as it was not available in store. I don't really have an issue with this because it's a simple process to follow. Delivery is free and returns are a cinch. I always choose the option of collect-in-store. The professional and friendly staff at Burberry are always efficient in finding my order and are so helpful when it comes to trying on the garment and making my final choice as to whether or not it the right fit and style. I purchased my Burberry Prorsum cashmere sweater in the exact same way. I absolutely love this sweater and am so glad I made the choice to order it online.

While I was at Chadstone, I stopped into Tiffany & Co to get my new Elsa Peretti diamond ring cleaned. The lovely assistant in the diamond area of Tiffany's recommended to have my ring cleaned every 2-3 months. They use an ultrasonic cleaner and give the ring a good polish. It was also suggested that I get a buff & polish every 2 years, which will cost a reasonable $75.00.

I'm really looking forward to showing you my gift from Burberry. Keep your eyes peeled on my blog for future updates later on in December. 

Are you considering buying yourself a gift to place under your Christmas tree? I'd love to hear all about it! 

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&…
