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.

    First off I want to say fantastic blog! I had a quick question that I'd
    like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to know
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts
    out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Appreciate it!

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three emails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Cheers!

    Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you're
    utilizing? I've loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say
    this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a reasonable price?
