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.

    Hello! Quick question that's completely off topic.

    Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4.
    I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct
    this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Thank you!

    little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
    everything. Nevertheless just imagine if you added some great pictures or
    videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics and
    videos, this site could undeniably be one of
    the most beneficial in its field. Wonderful blog!

    Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your
    post seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I'm not sure if this is
    a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser
    compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.

    The design and style look great though! Hope you get
    the problem fixed soon. Cheers

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you could do with a
    few pics to drive the message home a little
    bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog. A fantastic read.
    I will definitely be back.
