four seasons in one day

Well, our weather has gone from warm to FREEEZING in one day, would you believe? Melbourne's weather has always had a reputation of having four seasons in one day. I do love the fact it's cold now so I can start wearing my heavier cashmere sweaters. I am a sweater girl after all!

So here I am, wearing my favourite cashmere sweater by Spanish designer, Hoss Intropia. I just love the charcoal grey colour and the layered ruffles at the front. 




 

I picked up this fabulous, pink tartan skirt by Denny Rose from Euro Collections situated in Mount Eliza. It was on sale, but was the only one left and, not being a size 12, I put it back on the rack. I couldn't believe my ears when I was told they could alter this skirt to fit me!! So it takes pride of place in my closet.





The skirt came with a keyring accessory which I just adore; A coin, bearing the designer's name-Denny Rose, another bearing the name of an animal shelter, which funds from the purchase of this garment are donated to, and a cross.


Just as I had finished taking photographs, it started to rain. In the space of about five minutes the sun came out. You see what I mean when I say "four seasons on one day"? Anyhow, after the rain, I saw the most beautful double rainbow I had ever laid my eyes upon. 



As I laid my eyes upon this amazing sight, I wondered if there was any such thing as a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. To run and chase the rainbow would be an impossible feat, so I decided that there must be afterall. Anyone who could actually find the end of the rainbow would definitely deserve a pot of gold!!

Here's hoping your weekend is magical. I'd like to offer you all my sincere thanks for continuing to support my blog and for all of your valued feedback! Comments really do make my day! So go on, don't be shy, leave a comment below! 

Oh and I would LOVE you to follow my blog 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…
