When I fall in love I tend to fall hard and completely.

Long line cardi’s have become my latest love affair.

And the reason why is a no brainer they elongate the figure and create a slim silhouette – for me a dream item of clothing.

I purchased my first long line grey cardi from Sussan Fashion last winter and knew I needed more than one in my winter wardrobe.

The long line cardi Gods were smiling on me as within one week I received two of these dream items.

Eb & Ive

I was recently contacted by Eb & Ive to see if I would be interested in receiving product from their A/W collection.

I knew straight away that the navy longline cardi had to be mine, I was also spoilt with the fabulous grey Tejine Dress (perfect for layering under the cardi) and one of their fabulous tassel necklaces.

The Samari Cardi is beautiful and soft, the extra details of pockets and wooden buttons really make it something special.

A little bit about Eb & Ive an Australian brand that was first started in 2008 crafting beautiful jewellery. It has since grown into a lifestyle brand with clothing, accessories and accessories.


Eb & Ive Samari Cardigan – midnight $89.95 * | Eb & Ive Mecca Tassel Necklace – navy $34.95 * (comes in 5 different colours) | Eb & Ive Tejine Dress – grey $69.95 * (I’m wearing m/l) | Frankie 4 Liz Boots – tan $299.95 | Mimco Turnlock Zip Top (new season style here)


Now I recently attended the inaugural Style and Champagne afternoon tea in Paddington.

It was a fantastic afternoon filled with lots of laughter and quite a bit of champagne.

I was lucky enough to get second prize in an Instagram competition – I was extremely excited as I went up to receive my Surafina scarf.

Fast forward a couple of weeks and I got an Instagram message from lovely ladies at Surafina asking me if I received their email in regards to the $200 voucher I had won at the afternoon tea.

Well that certainly made my night – I was excited thinking I had won a scarf to be told I had won a voucher took it to a whole new level.

I already knew exactly what I wanted to pick – I had been eyeing off the Tan Long Line cardi for weeks, now it would be mine.

This cardi is perfect for layering, it is light and the tan is such a versatile colour for me it will go with some many items in my wardrobe.

It is longer than the Eb & Ive cardi but has split sides this allows for ease of moment. Just to give you an idea of length I’m 162 cm and it falls nicely without being too long.

  • I have MAJOR lust going on for that Surafina cardigan…the colour and length are perfect on you Karen – especially with the white denim and stripes xx And let’s not forget that necklace either!

    • Oh Bev the Surafina cardi is just gorgeous – so in love with the colour and the longer length. And don’t get me started on the tassel necklace – I think I need one in every colour

  • What a perfect pairing that cardi is with those boots! Nice work on the comp win!!

  • I love love love that long one. I often go to buy them, but then when I walk they get stuck between my legs. I must walk funny or something. So I still don’t have one in my wardrobe.

    • Haha Leanne I’m sure you don’t walk funny maybe you just haven’t found the right one. The blue on from Eb & Ive is great as its shorter no issues with it getting stuck in your legs 😜

  • Ingrid – fabulous and fun life

    I don’t have a long line cardi in my wardrobe but I’d love to get one now I’ve seen how flattering they are!

    • They are so much easier to wear than a long coat and so great to just throw on over a pair of jeans . I think you need one in your wardrobe

  • They are both so gorgeous! Two of my fave colours too.

  • Love them. You look amazing. I actually don’t have one! Time to get to the shops ha!

  • I love this style cardigan too! It looks great with everything & I think they make me look taller 😉
