Ebony & Ivory

One of my favourite songs from my childhood would have to be Ebony & Ivory, written by Paul McCartney, not because I am huge fan of his, but because the lyrics speak volumes for how we should treat eachother, no matter who we are, where we come from or how we look. The message is about living in harmony together.

So what's that got to to do with this blog post? Well, it has to do with something I found in the bottom of a plastic bag which was hidden at the top of my wardrobe while tidying up the house.

As I opened up the plastic bag, I rummaged through the clothing inside and there on the bottom, was my first ever Ebony & Ivory loveheart cashmere sweater which was a birthday gift from my husband from several years ago. What on earth was it doing in the bottom of a plastic bag? Well, that bag was meant to go to charity, except I had forgotten all about it.











This sweater had been so well loved that it started to become thin and there were several tiny holes beginning to appear. With a little TLC and needle and thread, I stitched up the tiny holes and restored the sweater back to its original glory.

I love the hearts on the front and the little grey deer with a tiny pink heart. The cashmere is so soft and cosy because the sweater has actually been made inside out. I purchased it from Eugenie Cashmere, who at the time were known as 8 Inkerman. I will soon be sharing something about Eugenie Cashmere, I'm so excited!

I hope you have been enjoying your weekend so far. I spent my day getting pampered at my hair salon, then I picked up my new Arabella Ramsay jeans from my tailor in Sandringham. Afterwards, my husband and I perused a few shops along Bay Street in Brighton. It really was a wonderful day!

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!

What I'm Wearing: Sweater-Bez…

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!
The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 










For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette. Check out my blog post on this fabulous boutique here.

Ballistic for Bally

I have always loved Bally, especially their shoes. They're made with the softest, luxurious leather I have ever worn. Bally were my first ever pair of high end designer shoes and they fit like a glove.
So this post is going to be dedicated to one of the most prestigious design houses and their amazingly comfortable, chic shoes. 
Here's some of my favourites from Bally's new S/S '12 collection:





Which is your favourite? I love the classic black Otty-Crest pump and the teal and navy Palda wedge sandals.
Have a great week! Mine will be an interesting one. I finish teaching for the term this coming Wednesday and go on a staff retreat to Creswick for the rest of the week. I'm looking forward to breathing in the crisp, clean country air!
