2012

Happy new year to you, my wonderful readers! How did you spend the first day of 2012? I helped supervise my husband as he started putting together our new BBQ pergola out the backyard. 

Earlier on during the day, we went for a drive to our local hardware store. While my husband went looking for the bits and bobs he needed, I browsed the garden centre and chose a beautiful Tuscan pot and yellow frangipani to plant inside of it. It's going to look amazing in our tropical garden!

Our weather has been very summery lately and today was no exception. In Melbourne, it was yet another scorcher at 35 degrees Celsius!

The coolest and cutest dress I own is my Odd Molly chemise. You can wear it over jeans, on its own during a hot day like today, or as a nightie. 





A lover of grey, I had to have this and the Swiss embroidery and lace makes this garment such a sweet choice. The embroidered rose on the back of the chemise is divine.






Later on in the day, I took a break from handing things to my handyman hubby and frolicked in the garden, enjoying the balmy evening of Melbourne. And as I sat, I had a wonderful feeling inside of me that this year was going to be an amazing one. I felt it in my heart.

 



I would like to take this opportunity to warmly wish you a beautiful new year. Thanks so much for all of your continued support and for taking an interest in my blog. May you have a wonderful 2012! 

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&…
