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.

Maecenas ultrices viverra ligula, vel lobortis ante pulvinar sed. Donec erat magna, aliquam vitae semper vitae, accumsan vel nisl. Vivamus pellentesque orci sit amet odio dictum eget commodo nulla consequat.

    A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
    There's no doubt that that you need to publish more
    on this subject, it might not be a taboo subject but typically folks
    don't talk about these subjects. To the next! Best wishes!!

    At this time it appears like BlogEngine is the
    top blogging platform out there right now.
    (from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

    You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I to find this topic to be actually something which I believe I'd never understand.
    It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me.
    I am having a look ahead in your next submit, I'll attempt to get the grasp of it!
