Keepsake I Will Wait Dress | Missguided Isabel Pointed Stiletto


Welcome to my ever dreamy world of flowers and lace, an ethereal land of dreams and perfect harmony. That’s a lie. A huge lie. The preconceived idea that bloggers don’t spend most of their day behind a computer editing, uploading, writing, organising their next shoot is amazing. The fact that viewers call bloggers ‘lucky’ to have this or that opportunity is beyond me. Call me a pessimist but I don’t believe in luck. Nothing you ever want in this world isn’t going to be given to you (unless you’re apart of the few via natural selection to indeed, literally, have things given to you) and you have to work to achieve your goals. This isn’t news to you though.

And I’m not angry, I’m just ranting. I am looking at this series of photos thinking ‘My God, I hope people don’t think I just walk around all day in lace and stilettos eating brunch and take photos of flowers”. I just don’t think I’d get any views if you saw me in my black tee, black jeans, black boots day after day.

In saying this – I do love this look, if I didn’t have to walk up a big hill to get to work I’d wear shoes like this more often. And if I didn’t have a fear in wearing the same dress more than a couple times I’d wear this Keepsake one everyday. I love white. I love white lace. There’s nothing sexier (unless it’s black lace).

In efforts to move out of my standard blog posts comfort zone Wes and I shot this last minute look on the rocks with no agenda but let’s try this lens and use the light in a completely different way for us. If you’re a blogger, photographer or artist I’d recommend you go out and change things up a little once in a while you may just surprise yourself with what you’re capable of.

Three Of Something Empires Majestic Dress

This blog is a continuous challenge for me, not only in the photography content but more-so the copy – I never have alot of words to say in my day to day activities. I sit behind a desk, only have a couple people I ever have to interact with at the office, I go to the gym with headphones in, then go home & sit alone in my room and work until I fall asleep. A natural introvert if you ever saw one. This bound with my distaste of small talk what do I talk about here? Weather? snoozefest. Still figuring that one out… what do you talk about in your blog? There’s only so much you can say about an outfit that you can’t already see. This super cute backless, colourful, mini dress is a fun one to be caught in the wind with.

An easy way to wear a crop without showing your midriff is by layering, even a tee or longer tank can be layered underneath because there are definitely days I’m not feeling particularly keen to out the belly out. Amirite?

I’m also wearing my Daniel Wellington watch, as mentioned before, the guys at DW were so generous they’ve given all of you a 15% discount code* if you wish you pick up your own watch (or a Christmas gift for someone special??) just punch in ‘fashionandsounds’ in the checkout. I actually really love the simplicity of their styles & quality of the leather.

That’s all from me, I’m quite exhausted!

When your friends have weddings in beautiful places and you use their venue as a backdrop for your outfit and it just so happens that your photographer is also a guest.

I designed this dress because I am in love with cut out details on bustlines, bustier detailing and going into my mid-20s I am bringing down hemlines to ‘dress my age’. At least for events and work. Anyone else in the same boat and see their style changing as their age matures? Amirite??

Life is odd. There are friends in your life that support what you do and friends that don’t. It’s a sad realisation when you find the latter. In my ever-increasingly disappointing list of non-supporters I’ve had to take a step back and not get offended because the reality is that they’re just people. Non-fashion people. Regular, everyday humans who don’t care about what label has brought out a new stiletto heel, the latest colours of Autumn/ Winter or how to layer that sweater over that tank.

Same goes for if my friend(s) who decide to start a toddlers play group or fast cars instagram – I’m not going to want to join that page or follow their socials because the truth is I wouldn’t care one bit. So before you get upset about the people closest to you not actually caring about how minimal your #ootd is, just realise that their disinterest probably isn’t a reflection on you as a human being but that their interests are just elsewhere. How boring and crazy would life be if everyone cared about fashion the way we did? The best thing to do is engage with your audience who follow you for you and reach out to people who will appreciate your content. It doesn’t mean that your friends and family love you any less.

In this look I’m wearing my A Brand shorts with a classic crop from Rollas, my black hat that I’m still to this day wondering where it came from (found it in my apartment), KK bling bling bling and the comfiest shoes in the universe – Vans slip ons. Hurruh for positive mid-week vibes!

A very sweet and springy look today in my Rollas dress, a dress that’s bound to fit you perfectly and show off all the nice parts of your body ie. your décolletage and shoulders. An easy head turner from experience haha.

I’ve been fighting off a weird flu/ congestion, throat swelling type fever for the last 11 days and I’m proud to say I’m finally on the mend. Not 100% but who knows maybe I would be if my incessant need to keep working, go to the gym, shoot looks and sit in the sun wasn’t at the back of my mind forcing me to get out and do those things. I’m not good at staying in bed and sleeping. productivity > means. A good and/or bad way to live life? Who knows.

Have a great Friday and weekend!

The life of a fashion designer is amazing – if I do say so myself – having a vision for something, envisaging how it’s going to be styled back with what, how it’s suppose to fall, it’s textures, it’s colours, what response, what feelings it’s going to evoke from someone. I love seeing the fruit, the finished product of something you’ve designed, created – that’s what gets my juices flowing. So naturally I loved the idea of designing my own bikini through Kini Swimwear because they manage all the annoying stuff like production lines, costings, manufacturing, trims and fabric sourcing. You just click the buttons on which things you like; shape, colour, size, print and then 2 weeks later you get the perfect bikini delivered to your door.

I designed and styled my nautical theme kini bikini back with a pair of white shorties from A-brand and classic Ray-ban Aviators and by chance Jock and I found this abandoned boat at a secluded beach we hiked to. Cute little thing. And yes, that’s a broken window, and yes the water police came about 30 minutes later and towed the boat away. Happy days!
