paper back lovers

Until recently, I had only ever read about Camilla & Marc and seen their creations gracing the pages of glossy mags, such as Harper's Bazaar and Vogue Australia. That is, until I stepped foot into their creative space along the Paris-lesque Street known as High Street, Armadale. I found so many amazing garments hanging deliciously on each hanger, I knew that this label would be one to keep on my style radar.

I visited the boutique when Camilla & Marc still had their Spring/Summer '11 range out. The dress below was on sale and I'm kicking myself that I didn't purchase it there and then. The bottom half which is a gorgeous green shade is actually made from suede. I love the vibrant blue hues, contrasting with the yellow and green. Pure genius!
 



One of my absolute favourites in the Camilla & Marc's new AW '12 Paperback Lovers range is the Maggie May LBD. Although it isn't a classic A-line shape, I love it because of its flattering elements, such as the use of ruching and layers in all the right places.  The cinched in waistband adds to this creative flattery.




 

 

The back of the dress has a cut-out piece that highlights the lower back. There is an exposed zip as well, which I am a huge fan of (see my post on my Bettina Liano bow skirt).

Another favourite element of the new collection is Camilla & Marc's floral accented dresses, skirts and jackets. I'm in love with the floral Revival A-line dress. It's such a chic piece for Autumn/Winter. 


  

I'm of the opinion that Camilla & Marc design creativity and aesthetic is a force to be reckoned with. I hope I get to see their new collection in the upcoming Paris Runway event as part of the LMFF! It would just rock my world, so to speak!  

Who's rocking your world at the moment?

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…

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…
