The perfect gift

I knew I wanted to buy myself a little something after my stint in hospital. I kept the thought in the back of my mind and I promised myself that as soon as I was fully recovered, I'd go shopping! So I did.

One of my favourite shopping destinations is Westfield Doncaster because it is home to a few of my favourite high-end designers and boutiques, such as Ralph Lauren, Gant, Max & Co, Max Mara, Christensen Copenhagen and Bally

I knew that there were sales going on and so it seemed like the perfect time to shop for a little something just perfect for me.

While looking in Christensen Copenhagen, I found a grey cashmere sweater by By Malene Birger. Malene Birger is an award winning Danish designer, formerly of Day Birger et Mikkelson. The price had been reduced and was within my price range. Perfect! So I tried it on and fell in love with its buttery soft texture and loose, comfy style.


I had been needing to purchase a few pieces that I could wear on the weekend for day and be able to dress up for a casual night out as well. Many of the sweaters I already own are quite tight fitting, shorter in length and hug my silhouette. This sweater is loose fitting and therefore more comfortable to wear. It does taper in at the lower waist, which flatters the figure. I'd say this style could possibly suit most body types. 



















There's a label sewn onto the back of the garment which reads "For yourself or the man in your life". Isn't that sweet? The fact that this sweater is a boyfriend style means that is is quite possible for your man to wear your sweater too. It's a cute concept, your man borrowing your sweater. Usually it's the other way around!


So there you have it! My little gift, to keep me cosy and warm during the season of Winter. I can also see myself wearing the sweater during cold Spring nights as well due to the fact it's 2 ply, making it very transeasonal. 

Anyway guys, I hope you have had a fabulous time over the weekend. Have a wonderful week and remember that whatever you do, make sure you do it in style.

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…
