Trend alert - the turtleneck. And hello again..
Posted on 01 July 2016
It's been a long while since I put my blogging hat on. A complicated life got in the way there for a bit. We all have them - these complicated bits - and I'm no different. But just this week I remembered how much I love to write, having been a writer for so long before this (slightly mad) leap into retail just two-and-a-half years ago.
So the blog is back. To share with you this fashion journey and everything else that hits the streets. I'll leave the last 12 months right out, You don't need to know. It was a bleep year. But thankfully, Casa Boheme rocked on, while I was dealing with that. Thank you universe.
Today marks the start of a new financial year. And for me -now that I am a fully fledged independent business-owner, on my own - the start of a new financial year might as well be the beginning of something new.
SO, LET'S TALK ABOUT THIS NOW - SKIVVIES or TURTLENECKS - Whatever you want to call them, IT'S COLD. LIKE, ACTUALLY, REALLY COLD. And they can be your style rescue. They can. I know many women won't go anywhere near a turtleneck, or dare I say it, A SKIVVY.. BUT..
It's a solution, a chic one. It solves a lot of style issues in the cold. So that is what this blog is about - the turtleneck, the skivvy. The winter essential wardrobe item.
Wear it under your dresses - winter ones are a no brainer but you can also wear favourite summer ones and take them right through the year.
Wear one under a gorgeous silk shirt too... (a-hem, the new Kate Moss Capsule collection for Equipment is in-store right now. Sorry. had to throw that in. But right there is a legitimate way to wear a rock'n'roll silk shirt when it's freezing, in a way Kate herself would approve!)
But wear it under jumpers, blazers, with denim or pants. It's really a fashion staple piece.

My favourite blog post on it is this -
And here. I'm giving yo a visual feast of ways to wear my favourite seasonal piece.
Just arrived in-store right now are turtlenecks by Casa Kuma, pure cotton lovelies. At $65.95 each, they are just a no brainer.
So, see you in your skivvy, - I mean turtleneck, real soon. And I'll be back again soon.
Best of luck for the 2017 financial year ladies, (and the school holidays too if you're a mumma or grandmumma.)
