In the Capital

We left Lakes Entrance early this morning, headed towards the NSW border, stopping at Bombala and Cooma, snow country. The trip became a little mundane after a while and I tried amusing myself on YouTube and the Internet. We didn't have much time to plan our music on itunes before we left home, so had a choice of rock and power ballads-argh!! We set the music to random and, in the end, I admit it did drive me quite crazy. itunes, here I come. I think you'll be my saviour for the trip on the way home!





Along our travels today, we saw many beautiful sights, including some shy little sheep, most of which ran away as soon as we approached.I managed to snap this pic, before they ran away!


When we arrived in Canberra, I must say I started feeling quite patriotic, knowing this is our country's capital city. I am a proud Aussie, after all. 


I last visited the A.C.T (Australian Capital Territory) back was when I was just a little girl. My family went on a vacation to visit parliament and the War Museum. I can't remember much of the trip, just the magnificent bronze statue from the Museum. That image has stuck with me to today. I can't wait to see it again during this trip, except this time, I'm certain it won't seem quite so tall.

During our stay in Canberra, we're staying in a deluxe suite at the Pavillion on Northbourne. Here, they offer hotel suites and serviced apartments. Although the room is smaller than the one we stayed in at Lakes, it has everything to make our stay here a comfortable one. the only thing it doesn't have is free Internet. Oh well, one can't have everything all of the time (just most of the time-he he).









Tomorrow I'm looking forward to going to the Canberra Centre for a spot of shopping. Afterwards, we hope to attend the Floriana exhibition where we expect to see lots of floral and Spring Fashion Carnival displays.

I hope you're having a great week so far.

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&…
