Blazers!


As most of you probably know by reading my blog, I'm more of a sweater girl, but there are days where I feel like wearing a blazer. My absolute favourite has to be my Max & Co boxy taupe blazer. Max & Co are part of the MaxMara Group, who also own Christensen Copenhagen. They stock some of the most amazing pieces and their tailoring is superb!

I love pairing my jeans with a blazer. It's the epitomy of chic. I enjoy wearing this because of the multitude of styling options. It even looks fabulous worn over an LBD! That's why I prefer to invest in pieces, because I know that the cost per wear far outweighs the initial expense.   









This blazer is a boxy, cropped fit, which suits a petite frame. I enjoy wearing this one because it's so comfortable and looks great whether it's buttoned up or left undone. The ruched sleeves are cropped and have buttons. In addition to this, there are two buttons on the back with ruching.  I really love the pleating at the back and front as well!



The only downside to this blazer is that it is made from a blend of linen and cotton, which means that it does crease a little. So when I am travelling in the car, I have to remove it to avoid looking like a crinkled up paperbag! Having said that, the fact that it is made from a percentage of linen means that it can be worn on even the hottest day.

Do you enjoy wearing blazers? How do you style yours?

I hope you've all had a great start to the week! I'm starting to get really excited because the Loreal Melbourne Fashion Festival is just around the corner! Fingers crossed I get to go to some of the runway events!

Yours in style,

    1. Thanks so much Alexandra! I find the menswear inspired blazers too rigid. This one has a real feminity to it with all of its style features.

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…
