Oh, how I missed you!

I cannot tell you how much I have missed you. I haven't been able to blog since I fell ill last Sunday. Due to the fact I had contracted a rare form of food poisoning, I was hospitalised from Sunday through to Wednesday afternoon. Although I can confirm it was the worst time in my entire existence, now I can say I feel more human again and, so, I am back, doing what I love...blogging to you!

Today was the first day I started to feel like there was a light at the end of a very long tunnel. I had to go to a hairdressing appointment this morning, which I was of course dreading because I did not know how or if I could handle being in an upright position for more than a couple of hours. I was bedridden for what felt like weeks. However, I made it through and am happier for it. Now my tresses are shiny and new, which has helped me start to become to feel brighter within myself too. 










  
I've taken a few happy snaps of the outfit I wore today. Another cashmere ensemble, paired with my trusty blue denim jeans and boots. I love the colours of the striped sweater; mint and lime, the perfect colour fruity combo for a wintry day like today. The cable knit cobalt blue scarf I am wearing is HUGE. I love wrapping it around in many different ways. The colour is striking and works really well with an already colourful backdrop. 




I am going to be taking it really easy this long weekend. It's my husband's birthday next Tuesday, so we have our mums over for a little celebration to mark this special occasion on Monday evening. I am hoping I feel up to taking Sean out on Tuesday night, for an intimate dinner for two. Besides that, I'll be resting and finalising my student reports. 

Have a beautiful long weekend, my lovelies! What are your plans? 

On a final note, live each day as though it were your last. Do the things that make you the happiest. Remember, if all else fails, go shopping!! That's what I'll be doing as soon as I'm fully recovered.

Yours in style,

Suzi x

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…
