It was obvious she had read my recent blog post about the benefits of neutrals being like Switzerland (because they go with everything in the wardrobe) and so she had stocked up for her Sydney trip.
After all, when you travel, getting flexibility from your wardrobe is important as the reduced weight, also reduces the fuel required for your private jet!
On a freezing cold day, Nicole and Antonia shopped for toys in Sydney's Woollahra with her sister Antonia in tow, sans their kids.
Nicole wore a tailored long line charcoal grey coat with a single placket covering the button line, although the jacket looked suspiciously like it had a double breasted form.
She totally matched the coat with a grey cowl neck sweater in various pointelle sizes. Theses two pieces were made for each other in colour and fit.
Black leggins & high black army style lace up boots with black sunnies.
The pop of colour was her grape structured handbag - very minimalist in its feeling.
Loved the lot!
Apologies for not having the designer names - stay tuned....
No comment on sister Antonia other than very ordinary & I am not even sure her bag is real!
PS: Next time you are in Woollahra, check out the following ladies clothing stores that I love!
& that suburb is a gold mine for homewears & antiques, although priced not cheaply....
There are three ladies clothing stores in Woollahra that I love, love, love.
Riada - relaxed corporate suits and separates with some edge, luxury knits, loafers, interesting costume jewellery
Artwear by Lara - loads of black & layered & assymetrical and goth items. I dont wear the look top to toe - I only wear one piece at a time with other classic stuff. Very interesting costume jewellery.
Attic - baby sister store to Arida in Potts Point - relaxed separates, boho feeling, luxury knits.
The kids store visited by Nicole was Kidstuff. It also has stores in Double Bay & Cronulla. It has amazing kids stuff that normal suburban toy stores dont have. It also has alot of the normal "normal" toys. Please check prices with the suburbs before you buy the "normal" stuff.
