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.

    CBD oil is now one of the most popular new products available today.
    The annual sales of CBD oil products reached nearly 600 million in the year 2018.
    It is anticipated to increase by an average of 107 percent per year.
    CBD products were available in head shops, natural foods shops, and a handful of doctors' offices prior
    to the year 2017. Since then the market has expanded
    and CBD products are now readily available at natural food stores,
    national food stores, beauty salons, nail salons, convenience stores and
    gas stations. But, do these CBD products manufactured from secure
    CBD oil?First of all take a look at what are referring to by safe CBD oil.

    According to some reports, as much as 40% of CBD products available on the market have been found to be positive for heavy metals, such
    as arsenic, lead, and chemical pesticides. They also contained bacteria, fungi as well as toxic mold.
    Many are of the opinion that CBD products which contain these
    chemicals are harmful. Pesticides are substances that kill insects and other organisms that could
    be detrimental to plants. The Toxics Action Center states that pesticides can cause various health hazards, including temporary effects
    like nausea and headaches and more serious health issues such cancer, reproductive damage and endocrine disruption. If you find that a CBD product is contaminated by pesticides, it could cause serious harm
    to inhale. And, of course, it should be tested by a trusted third-party laboratory.
    Search for CBD oil providers within the U.S. that use only U.S.-grown hemp if you are
    searching for CBD oil that is safe products.
    Choose companies whose products have been rigorously tested
    for purity and quality. In addition, as a measure of security and quality the majority
    of these suppliers are controlled by state agencies.
