A little moody today but I didn’t know how else to act when wearing all black, especially leather. This is easily one of my default looks for winter – high rise black jeans, black boots and black leather jacket. I specify on the high rise because the waisted jeans make your legs longer and coming from a 5″3 midget I could use all the help I can get. It also accentuates and brings in your waist to create that sexy femme shape. All black because it’s black and if you don’t have alot of black in your wardrobe you’re doing life wrong.
Going into winter one thing that sucks is putting together a look you love but then putting a huge, double breasted coat over it and covering the whole look. One thing you can do is work backwards – chose a coat you love and then incorporate what will work with that. Or else, in this case wear a slightly more open coat at the front to show what you’re wearing underneath. This cape will keep you warm and you can still wear sleeves or a knit underneath and it looks awesome.
I am so into over the knee (OTK) boots over skinny jeans. I like how subtle yet sexy it is. Heeled boots are (generally) so comfy, this is why I wear them every day – however OTK can look a little OTT so dressing them down with jeans is an easier everyday option instead of showing off upper thigh with a mini skirt, especially in winter. I’ve teamed my jeans/ boots number with chambray from Dricoper and a fringe bag from Solsana to make it all a little more casual and ‘everyday’.
Feeling neural and relaxed in this look. Although I’m wearing heels I am quite myself in heels and I think I much prefer them over flats (sneakers aside) only because I have a high distastes towards ballet flats and any other flats don’t seem to be so comfy, they pinch and hurt my feet trying to keep them on, I can’t explain. Maybe it’s my 5″3 self compensating. Do you prefer heel or flats?
I’d felt a little demotivated at work, and I didn’t feel right about it so I changed up my mindset and decided to take more initiative, get more creative and well my boredom flipped and work got better. I wouldn’t say I’m a one of those people who would post motivational quotes all the time but sometimes changing your mindset towards something can change your mood towards it, and for the better – your life.
I shot this look a while ago with Wes now and I wouldn’t say it’s majorly complicated, I’d actually say it’s one of my most simple outfits, suited to my current mood with minimal edit and effort.
Jumping on the suede fringe train with my wide leg culottes – all sorts of trends going on in here. I mixed up the textures a little bit with the fur trimmed heels & kept it all fairly monochrome with just the black and maroon tones (hair inclusive).
Hope you all have the best week! May the 4th be with you
The perfect little event dress, date dress, engagement party dress or dress to go out for a cocktail. I find that if there’s something your wardrobe is allowed to have in abundance it’s jeans, shoes, plain tees and LBDs.
A simple look I threw together for a night out on the harbour in Melbourne. My general rule of thumb is if you’re going to be revealing on a night out eg. showing alot of leg, then cover up your arms or if you’ve got a plunging neckline like so then don’t let the rest of the look be too tight or skin revealing. A little bit of subtlety goes a long way.
I had a one on one with Ella Bache’s national training manager, Heather Vounnou, where she showed me in detail the ins and outs of skincare. Just in this brief meeting with this absolutely beautiful lady I got an understanding of how seriously Ella Bache takes their skincare process, animal free testings and scientifically proven results driven products. Something I can definitely get behind!
As part of their #beautybeginswith campaign I thought I’d share what I define beauty as: Beauty to me isn’t just skin deep but someone who truly respects themselves, their body and their mind. Beauty is self-confidence and beauty is rare. Respecting your body includes: regular exercise, a good beauty regime and healthy foods and drinks. Respecting yourself and your mind includes: how you treat people and how you let people treat you.
If you’re interested in learning more about beauty Ella Bache is now taking enrolments for their beauty college and are giving away daily prize packs to inspire a step towards a career in beauty.
My last look for Fashion Week Sydney wearing an embroidered mesh skirt and peplum belt with a cape top. I had such a wonderful experience at MBFWA this year meeting a bunch of new bloggers whom had come from out of town for the spectacle. I love that you know everyone from instagram but kind of forget that there’s a person behind the 9×9 grid with a seemingly much different personality than their online one.
Everyone was so lovely & friendly, and what I would love to contribute to this blogging world is gathering a community of girls (and boys) who are there to lift each other and support each other rather than bitching and competing against each other. I believe everyone has their own race to run & their own journey towards their own goals so there’s no reason to bring other people down to get there. I find this is a ripe misconception the fashion industry has, and although it definitely DOES exist, I hope not to surround myself with said persons and I hope you never find yourself in their close circle of friends.
Surround yourself will people that will only encourage & bring you up & make you a better person and do the same.
