A blog that focuses on styling outfits using items easily available in Australia. Featuring a mix of affordable and high end fashion, local and imported (so long as the shipping costs are reasonable...)
With the weather finally closer to 20 rather than 40 degrees its time I can actually start wearing some gorgeous layered autumn looks. Loving this Oroton tote. Sadly I have one very similar already so will have to observe from afar....
Of owning these gorgeous items, and please forgive hte musical references. I have a real obsession with Issa lately. I am going to buy a dress but it needs to be the right one for the price point obviously. As much as I love the colour of this one, I just do not know if I would get the wear out of it. The Mimco necklace though? As good as mine, once I get in and double check I love it as much in real life as I do online!
Loosely inspired by the release of Oz The Great and Powerful because I am a nerd like that! And no, the 'Dorothy' Perkins Sundress was not a mistake. What was a mistake though and most frustrating, but it appears the shoes are in fact a child's design. I am too lazy to edit this creation so please do not hold it against me!
I won't bother apologising for my extended absence, no doubt it will happen again in the future! This shift dress formed the initial inspiration for this outfit. I then added the splashes or orange so it was not completely boring!
Its been a while since I did a budget friendly post. And when I saw this wrap dress by Mix Apparel I realised that one was long over due! At only $25.00 for the dress, and that being the most expensive component of this look, its a real steal!
For some reason owls are everywhere at the moment. I certainly do not dislike this. Owls are very smart after all. I've added the ASOS shoes as a) they are adorable and b) Owls eat mice, and for some reason it appealed to me to have the two in the same outfit.
Yet another outfit based on the accessories. This time the Peeptoe Necklace - its gorgeous and I love it! I chose the blues and pinks for the rest of the outfit to add pops of colour without overwhelming the bling.
Few colour schemes are as classic as black and white with splashes of red. Here is an elegant, classic but fun corporate look for all of you office workers! Plus I think I need those Choos - pun intended...
This little number was completely inspired by the silk scarf in paisley print. I have no idea why as paisley is not generally in my wardrobe! The bag I have been eyeing off from Kikk-K for quite a while. It might still make it home with me one day....
As promised Miss K. A little take on your 'Boho' style - but with some of my chicness - what do you think?
To those of you who are not Miss K - this is an outfit requested from a friend of mine - she wanted to see what I made of her slightly boho/hippy style. I've probably missed it to be perfectly honest, the above is about as 'Boho' as I get.... adding boots to a dress!
As 2013 starts up I confess I get a wee bit wistful about the days when I was a university student and life seemed much simpler and less materialistic. So when I saw this t-shirt I designed a fun little outfit in honour of you wise little owls signing up for another year of study. Best of luck and enjoy it while you can!
Last night I dreamt I was sleeping under a wedding dress. An alabaster ivory fishtail to be precise. Weird. Anyway, when I then saw this gown by Alannah Hill my mind was already in the right place to try for my first bridal ensemble (well here anyway) - so here it is - a non-traditional yet elegant and romantic alternative for those brides wanting to avoid a 'standard' wedding dress. Plus the name of the dress? Kill me with awesomeness!
Alas t'has been some time since I posted here. But as a colleague was so kind to remind me, I really should get back onto it! With life taking over, I cannot promise to keep this blog as much up to date as I do the other one, but here is a little post to tide some over. This outfit named in honour of the disturbing moment over my Christmas holidays when my mother in law offered to lend me her trilogy of a certain set of 'pretty hot' books. Scary. All puns intended, right down to the 'bone'...
