Clean Living with Baserange

Baserange Melbourne Store image C/- Baserange.net

I first discovered Baserange when I was shopping online at Net-A-Porter. This beautiful label started out with only underwear and have since expanded their collection to include leisure wear as well. What really appeals to me about Baserange is not only the comfort factor, the majority of fabrics used are sustainable and ethically produced. 

Baserage has upped the anti when it comes to  reducing their carbon footprint. One of the ways they do this is by keeping the manufacturing process local. For example, Baserange manufactures all of their underwear, T-shirts and sweaters in smaller towns around Porto in Portugal. By doing this the time,cost and travel involved during the manufacturing process is heavily reduced. 

Some of you may be familiar with the term 'clean eating', which is all about reducing the amount of artifical colours and flavours and eating foods that are in their most natural state. Baserange is also trying to be as 'clean' as possible in the way they manufacture their clothing. This ethical label prides themselves on being mindful of just how much water and chemicals are actually used in the manufacturing process. 

When purchasing a garment from Baserange be rest assured that you are helping to win the fight against carbon emissions and impact these are having on this, our precious environment. 

Enjoy the rest of the week and your weekend too!

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…

Update on Ralph Lauren in Australia

Most of you guys know how very fond I am of Ralph Lauren clothing, particularly the runway womenswear Collection label. I have published multiple posts showcasing this iconic American brand. The impeccable quality, fit and style of the Collection label is second to none-the creme de la creme, shall we say. I think the Ralph Lauren Purple Label for women, now named Collection, has the best slim fit cashmere sweaters on the luxury designer market today. I own several pieces. But now that's about to change. 

Why, you ask? Because Ralph Lauren Melbourne, Australia, is no longer going to carry the luxury Collection label. That's right folks. You heard it right. 

On a recent birthday stay in Melbourne earlier on in May, I visited the Ralph Lauren's Flagship Store on the Paris end of Collins Street. I had saved up my hard earned money to purchase another slim fit 100% cashmere sweater in Lux Tan. I looked around in the store eager with anticipation, hoping to find the sweater in qu…
