Back to the Georges book, one of the people interviewed was Christine Barro, who was the accessories buyer during the 80's and 90's until the store closed.

I visit every time I'm in Melbourne for a browse, and when I was in there last year, I got chatting to her in the store while I admired some beautiful costume jewellery in one of the display cases.

The store stocks all manner of things from umbrellas and hats to bags, sunglasses, scarfs, gloves and jewellery…. and after a lot of though I bought a long necklace, made by a Paris atelier called Goossens. Christine brings in all sorts of unusual things, and Goossens, it turns out, have an interesting history. They produce the famous Sautoir necklaces for Chanel, and have done so since they were first designed in conjunction with Coco Chanel in the 1950's. I had been drawn to the necklace in the display case and had commented to Christine that it was very Chanel like, minus the logos, so it was no surprise to then find that they made the costume jewellery for Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, Dior and many others. If you're ever in Paris they have a showroom at 380 rue Saint- Honore to visit, which is definitely my kind of specialty shop.

So in terms of "Orchids on your Budget" I've stayed strong in the face of overwhelming numbers of emails entreating me to buy in the Internet Sales (and I've spent a lot of quality time unsubscribing from lists), and I've yet to set foot in a physical shop in Adelaide for the January sales… but I did buy one thing in the Netaporter sales. I'd been keeping my eye on it for weeks, waiting patiently until it dropped to 70% off. I have a feeling my Grandmother would have approved. It's a Lela Rose sheer lace coat (above). Not exactly a practical day-to-day item, it's definitely more a special occasion thing… but I think it's a timeless cut and will jazz up a plain black dress or trousers and top combo and providing I don't stack on the weight will be something that I'll be able to wear for many years to come.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with?
    I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I'm looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had
    to ask!

    I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone
    else encountering issues with your site. It appears like some of the written text in your content
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as
    well? This might be a problem with my internet browser because I've had
    this happen before. Thanks

    Hey there! Quick question that's totally off topic.
    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My weblog looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue.
    If you have any suggestions, please share. Many thanks!

    I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed ..

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me.

    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!
