My top ten must-haves!

Fashion fads come & go, but real style stands the test of time. As mentioned earlier, I'm one for classics versus trends. I love buying clothing that lasts and is therefore timeless. 

I have put myself up for the challenge of finding classic pieces using Audrey Hepburn as an example. Here's my list of the top ten must-haves!!

1. Man's style classic buttoned down white shirt




2. LBD-Little Black Dress



3. A-Line dress/skirt



4. Trench Coat (Burberry is the original)



5. Black turtleneck sweater (Preferably cashmere)



6. Leopard print (one piece at a time/NEVER more than one!!)



7. Silk Scarf (Preferably Hermes)



8. Ballet Flats



9. Pearls (Earrings/necklace)



10. Investment handbag (look to Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Prada for classic styles)  


What's your favourite out of my top ten must-haves? 

Enjoy your weekend and, whatever you do, make sure you do it in style!

By the way, this is my 50th blog post!! I'd like to thank you all for your continued support. I look forward to sharing many more exciting posts with you in the future!

Yours in style,

Suzi x

  3. Oh my word! I always love a good Audrey piece and the last shot - I've never seen it before which is really saying something! How timeless is her look? Practically all of these shots could be a very chic girl on the street today.

  10. Oh Suzi - I just got your question about LMFF accreditation. Mine came through late Friday but I usually apply as a photographer! I think that your best bet might be to call up on Monday to discuss with the relevant contacts (on the media accreditation page). HTHs and am sure I'll see you soon!

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

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

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&…
