Arabella Ramsay Haul

So what did I buy from Arabella Ramsay's Winter Solstice Sale, you ask? A skirt and some coloured jeans!

Having been on holidays, I have noticed a bit of a gap in my casual wardrobe, so I have acted upon this by buying myself a pair of navy jeans by Arabella Ramsay. Made with Japanese twill, these jeans are super comfy. They fit like a glove, except the length, so are as a consequence are at my tailor, The Invisible Seam, being altered. 

My second garment is a fabulous mustard coloured woollen skirt, just perfect for cold, wintry days. I love the flirty pleats and feel fabulous wearing it! 

 








I love the packaging my purchases came in, especially the beautifully printed tissue paper. 

I will be posting pics of how I've styled these new items in the not too distant future, so keep your eyes peeled on my blog. Better still, become one of my highly valued followers. That way, you'll never miss out on all of the exciting things that happen around here. x

I hope you all enjoy your Friday tomorrow (T.G.I.F), no matter where you are and what you do. I may just take myself out shopping again! But you'll be guaranteed that this time, I'll only be window shopping!! I've done my dash on my budget. Oh yes, I nearly forgot to  tell you. Today I was very excited to pick up my glasses from the OPSM Eye Hub in Hawthorn. I purchased a pair of Prada and Burberry eyeglasses, so keep a look out for pics on the blog too.

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&…
