OPSM Eye Hub

Up until recently, you would not know that I wore glasses, unless you know me personally, that is! I have never taken any pics of me wearing my glasses and published them on here. I have been so bored with my old pair of Booth & Bruce (London) glasses that I was in desperate need of a change. And so the story goes...

When I first commenced holidays, I had compiled a list of errands to run and appointments to schedule. One of my priorities was to organise to see an optometrist and purchase a new pair of eyeglasses. I had heard so many wonderful things about the OPSM Eye Hub that I had to check this fabulous new concept store out for myself. Was I disappointed? Read on to find out! 

The OPSM Eye Hub is located in Hawthorn. On entry, I was greeted by their friendly concierge. I couldn't believe my eyes with the number of designer brands they stocked! I was literally speechless and that doesn't happen to me very often. 

Stocking over 2000 frames, there is a style to suit everyone's taste and budget. While I was waiting to see the optometrist, my personal stylist started by collecting all of the pairs I liked. She put them aside for me until after my appointment. I thought this was a brilliant idea as it took the stress out of having to try them on after having had an eye test.








My optometrist, Spiros, was knowledgeable, friendly, approachable and professional. He answered any questions I had with confidence and ease. I often feel a little anxious when having an eye test as the eyes are quite delicate in nature. However, the eye test was a breeze, so I would highly recommend you booking into see Spiros. Tell him I sent you! 

Out of the several pairs of eyeglasses I had initially chosen, I narrowed it down to two pairs, Prada and Burberry. Could I choose? Well, no, so I ended up buying both!! Plus OPSM gave me a further discount for buying two pairs, which was an added bonus. 















I love both pairs for different reasons. They are both quite different and as a result, give me different looks. The Burberry pair is a very neutral colour, which I was wanting. It doesn't really feel/look like I am wearing any glasses. The Prada pair make quite a style statement with their shape and tortoiseshell colour.

So what do you say about my new eyeglasses? Which ones do you like the best, or like me, are you finding it hard to choose?

What are your plans for the weekend? I'm really looking forward to getting my hair styled tomorrow with a colour, cut and blowwave. I always feel fabulous afterwards.


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…
