Classics: The Black Pant

Must-haves: The essential items in a woman's closet that provide a framework on which to build upon. One of these must-haves is a pair of classic black pants. 

I am thrilled to have recently found the most comfortable pair of black pants at a fabulous boutique in the citySwensk. Swensk stock one of my favourite Swedish labels, Filippa K. 

Filippa K design contemporary garments for both men & women. Their style aesthetic focuses on classics which have easy, simple, clean lines, suited to modern people who lead busy lives.

 
  
Here, I chose to wear my Filippa K Dree twill pants with a print blouse for a chic, relaxed weekend look. What do you say? 






















I have already had lots of fun styling these classic black pants with garments from my closet. I'm looking forward to showing you more in future posts. Watch this space!
   
This weekend we get to enjoy an extra long weekend. For those of you who live abroad, we call it the Australia Day long weekend! You've gotta love that!! Today is actually Australia Day and to celebrate we enjoyed a traditional Aussie BBQ in the comfort of our own home. It was wonderful!





I'm a proud Aussie, through & through!! 

How has your weekend been so far? Have you made any exciting plans? 

As always, I love hearing from you, so please keep in touch.

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!
Yours in style

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&…
