Winston Churchill famously declared "Whisky and cigars, No Sport!" when asked the secret to longevity. "Preservatives!" I declared, when contemplating the same question.
Ever since I spied these beautiful hand embroidered t shirts on Garance Dore's blog I knew I'd have a collection of my own! The classic parisian cool label has an ever growing cult following, myself included.

The one redeeming feature of where I live are the beaches that eastern Australia are so famous for. This weekend I travelled to the Sunshine Coast to commemorate the first day or Spring.

Something not so endeering that we queenslanders are renowned for is our love of the thong. Head south and this trend dies off; somewhere where class and sophistication pick up.

That being said may I present to you the alternative, the anti-thong. This shoe is safe. They are my security shoe, and if a security shoe was meant to look cooler than it just would not be doing it's job.

I've been waiting to share my Celine fur sandals on the blog for a while. I don't get to wear them as often as I would like as my boyfriend thinks they are the most heinous shoes he has ever laid eyes on and won't be seen in public with them/me. Regardless of the fact, there are no fucks given when I do as they are probably my favourite pair of shoes, ever! 

My cashmere knit is by new Aussie label Christopher Esber, who is fast becoming my personal fave. If you haven't done so already, check him out!!!!

Also close to my heart are these Zara cullottes that took a mad hunt of Zara London stores when I was in town to track down. Well worth it.

I think my obsession du jour with oversized loose fitting clothing stems from growing up with four brothers, pulling closest raids and making the best of a bad situation!

The hunt for the perfect boot often proves fruitless, as there are so many factors to consider. The right boot should be equal parts asthetics, practicality and personality. 

I am beyond happy with the Acne Comet boots I picked up in their new Marais store in Paris recently. After trying on literally every style they had in stock I choose the Comets. They are not dissimilar to the RM Williams boots my dad used to wear, so I was sold on nostalga and of course, their super shiny leather. 

I have heard some negative reviews of Acne shoes, that they are uncomfortable and what not, however I feel this may be a sizing issue. I did find that the sizing varies widely between styles, more so than you might find with other labels. This could pose an issue if you were looking to purchase a pair online. 

Two months down the track and I have worn them every other day, the leather moulding nicely around my feet, the design versitile enough that I could pair them with just about anything, including the pyjama inspired ensemble above, in my closet to give a polished finish.

The old adage about wine can be applied here; a good boot should get better with age!
