classic fashion always in style...!!!

I have not posted fashion before
but with the loss of 26 kilos (57 lbs)
     i am finding clothes rather appealing again
and have put away the larger sizes
(in case I grow into them again!)
and am dressing in my now vintage pieces I had put away
a few years ago!!!!!

when it came time to buy a new wardrobe I trotted of to Country Road

only to discover that it no longer carried the classic clothing that I had always loved

and I always have a BUT!!!!!!

the lovely young salesgirl suggested I might like their other store!

and so I discovered trenery 
and there was my style!

I suppose I could try to style up a bit
but it is these classic lines that seem to suit me
and that I feel comfortable in so
I did have a lovely time playing
and walked off with quite a bit!

It is rather fun being a size 10 (Aust) again!!!!

Do you like the classic look?
or do you like to play with your fashion choices?


  1. Wow Jules!!! Fantastic, you will have to tell us how, unless I missed that part. Love the look you put together here...

  2. Dearest Jules,

    So probably we could swap some clothes as I wear a size 8 or 10 in some cases, depending on the fabric. Both of us went to Florida, driving all the way to Miami (1,000 km one way) and stayed at the Hyatt House (apartment with kitchen and all) when we did some shopping. I was telling my husband that for our age, they don't make much anymore... Mostly they aim at the younger group of buyers; not us. Like you, I love the more classic style, it is timeless and more elegant.
    Hope you are quite happy with your new wardrobe and enjoy it for coming winter.
    Love to you,

    1. Oh Mariette we will just airmail an outfit a week to each other!!!!!!!!
      My Grandmother had a lovely expression, when she thought someone was not dressed age appropriately, 'Mutton dressed as lamb!!' I rather think she would be saying it to me about some of the things I am now wearing!!!!!! xx

  3. Oh Jules! What fantastic news. I am so pleased for you. I recently lost 24 kg to return to a size 10 so know how you feel a little. And yes, Trenery has some gorgeous choices. Time for a fashion show? J x

    1. Jane when I went to there site to link it I couldn't find any of their lovely things but perhaps it is between seasons now and I had better wait for their spring look!!! It is certainly a healthier weight and I am enjoying it just have to hope I don't put it all back on though!!! xx

  4. Congratulations, Jules! nothing is harder than losing weight (well, maybe quitting smoking!) but it is surely the key to a better and longer life. Very happy for you. And a few new clothes is a great reward. Classic clothing looks so good on most women. Hope you find something neat!

  5. i love your blog, to express your views, this is the correct way.

  6. wow- congrats- love all the outfits you featured- have fun...


    1. Karen, how lovely to see you here. I am having fun but alas now that I have some beautiful things, look quite smart in them I have nowhere to wear them!!!!!!

  7. Congratulations Jules! When we return home will need to go on a serious diet. Have been enjoying too many naughty things, including at La Closerie des Lilas today and the weight is starting to go on despite all the walking. The clothes you've chosen look great and will be so good on your size 10. Not sure about the "mutton dressed as lamb thing". Certainly the clothes you've shown don't fit into that category, they're really cool. But I do love quite eccentric outfits too, and have fallen in love with a book called "Advanced Style" by Ari Seth Cohen with fabulous pictures of wonderful women of 60 plus (many in 70s, 80s and yes even 90s) of all shapes and sizes who have spirit and courage and independent style. I bought it in Paris a couple of days ago but hopefully it will reach Australian bookstores. Best wishes,

  8. That is a book I shall have to grab hold of as I am now eligible to be of advanced style!!!!!!!

  9. Oh, my! Good for you, Jules. I so wish I could manage that sort of weight loss.

  10. Wow! Well done you Jules and these classic clothes are timeless - and really lovely too. Yes, Trenery is great and there is always a good choice too. X

  11. It's the best time to make some plans for the future and it's time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Maybe you could write next articles referring to this article. I wish to read even more things about it!
