60's mod

You know the saying, 'A change is sometimes as good as a holiday'? Well, I have been feeling for quite some time now, that I really need a change; a change of hairstyle, that is.




As you can see, I now have brand new bangs and I absolutely love them! It was the best thing I ever did and if you have been contemplating doing the same, I highly recommend that you do it too.

For Mother's Day, my husband and I invited our mums over for a seafood BBQ. The weather in Melbourne was actually really freezing today. In fact it was only 14 degrees Celsius! What this type of weather calls for is warm cashmere.

I bought this cashmere dress a couple of months ago from Eugenie Cashmere and I have been saving it for a rainy day. So it was the perfect companion to keep me warm!   












I love bright colours and I especially love the colour-blocking in this dress, which is quite reminiscent of the mod-style dresses from the 60's. 

Orange has made quite a come-back this season , which I think is fabulous! During the cooler months, a splash of Le orange brightens up grey skies.

How has your weekend been treating you? Have you been doing anything exciting of late? Next week, I will start writing student reports, which is always a long & arduous task. A weekend catching up with our friends will be the perfect reward for a busy week.

Please leave a comment below! I'd love to hear from you.

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&…
