Treasure Hunt!

For those of you who have read my previous post, French Chic with Repetto, I am mad about Repetto shoes and would do anything to get my hands on a new pair. After doing a Google search of stockists in Melbourne, I finally found my lost treasure! 

Nestled amongst some of the most stylish boutiques along Little Collins Street, Melbourne, there lies the hidden treasure I had been looking for some time now. Treasurette

Treasurette is a boutique which specialises in high-end luxury labels, both international and contemporary, some of which include: Repetto, Aperlai, Givenchy, Maison Martin Margiela, Finsk, House of Harlow 1960 and Vassilisa. 




  


 Business owners, Alice and Deborah, named the boutique Treasurette after the original space for the boutique, which was situated near Treasury gardens! Their style motto is "Treasurette is inspired by the love for art, fashion and style." 

 


I made arrangements prior to my visit with the co-owner of Treasurette, Alice. Alice was very welcoming and offered me to visit one hour prior to the regular opening time, so that I could browse and pretty much have the entire boutique all to myself. I felt like a VIP!



When I arrived, I started trying on almost the entire range of Repetto shoes, both ballet flats and heels. I loved every pair that I tried on and remarked jokingly that I would like one of each style...please!!


 




 
 There I was, surrounded by a sea of shoes, almost drowning! I was in shoe heaven and savoured every moment. 



 Next was Aperlai, Paris, a line of shoes created by designer Alessandra Lanvin. I have never tried on such amazingly stunning shoes in my life! I will be definitely be saving up for a pair!! Apparently Alessandra consults a podiatrist during the design process in order to ensure that the foot's health is not compromised. At 10cm in height, the shoes were extremely comfortable and I could walk in them with no issues. Very impressive! I felt like I belonged on the red carpet!





So, my overall experience at Treasurette was fabulous. Alice was extremely helpful and knowledgable, offering advice on the correct fit of each shoe I tried on. I was introduced to some fabulous high-end designers, some of which I had only every seen gracing the pages of Vogue and the like, quenching my thirst for new style discoveries. 



Next time you make a trip into the city, make sure you pay a visit to Treasurette. You'll be hooked just like I am. Four pairs later...

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

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…
