First day of Spring!

I made a huge leap of joy in celebration of the first day of Spring! Spring has finally sprung in Melbourne and I love it! I had really had enough of the l-o-n-g Winter we have had.

I am happy to leave behind cold nights, rugged up in winter woollies, walks with the dog, wearing what feels like fifteen million layers, with the goal of trying to keep warm. You see, I feel the cold badly. Now that Spring is here, I feel comfort in knowing the sunshine will warm the cockles of my heart and make everything feel just so wonderful. It's a wonder what a bit of sun can do for the soul. Oh, how I love Spring!

I enjoyed sitting in the sunshine today and took some happy snaps of my outfit. I really love these Arabella Ramsay skinny jeans and the lightweight cashmere sweater I have on is one of my favourites. My Repetto patent leather wedges are extremely comfy and I always feel fab wearing them (oh, and tall!). Thanks to Deb at Treasurette for stocking this Parisian label. I wish I could come to your gorgeous boutique again to purchase another pair. I shall have to save up! My husband helped to take some outfit shots as well and we had a lot of fun and lots of laughs!!














  
Unfortunately, I didn't get to the Bassike boutique opening today, as I was still feeling a bit under the weather. I'll save it for another sunny day, when I'm feeling on top of the world! I hope those of you who did go, managed to snap up some wonderful garments for the Springtime.

I had my fringe trimmed this morning by the fabulous Yoshi at Rokk Ebony salon. It was getting a tad too long! I am still enjoying my hair this length and the colour as well. My Elemis skincare arrived in the post the other day and, so far, the Daily Redness Relief cream is making a difference (see this post for details).   

Enjoy your weekend!!

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…
