I’m Back

Image-1

I’ve had this blog for just over two years now and It’s been so wonderful to have my own little corner of the internet to blab on about whatever it is that I’m wearing or show you wherever it is that I’ve been. I loved it, until suddenly I didn’t.

I don’t know why exactly I fell out of love with blogging. I think I felt like I hit a wall creatively, like I wasn’t doing anything different to stand out. It’s currently Fashion Week in Sydney and so here I am, standing around all these impeccably dressed, interesting people and suddenly it’s back. The excitement and love for this atmosphere, and the reason why I started doing this in the first place.

I’m here to say sorry not only to those lovely people who told me they missed my posts, but also to myself for momentarily giving up. For some reason I shy’d away and stopped believing that I had the ability to do something different with my little space.

So I’m back. And I’m going to do it right this time.

MIDNIGHT MAURIE

IMG_1639

Todays outfit features this Maurie and Eve sequin jumper that I bought at Sydney Fashion Weekend back in May.

You know when you see a garment from across the room and you do that determined half run to grab it before anyone else? Well this amazing jumper had that effect on me. I love that the sequins are velvet on one side, creating this luscious, matte effect, and the slick and shiny reverse side catches any light, taking this cropped jumper from casual to glamorous.

I paired this with black jeans and some patent leather heels for a sophisticated night look that is comfortable and warm for this chilly winter.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jumper – Maurie and Eve

Jeans – Rollas

Shoes – Marco Gianni

RIDING IN THE 90’S

This week I was lucky enough to receive some pieces from Riders by Lee, the edgy, younger sibling of Lee Jeans.

Today is the day that their new 90’s inspired, ‘Avant Grunge’ collection hits stores and I am so excited to celebrate with them by bringing back styles from my favourite era of fashion!

The Winter ’14 collection celebrates the best of 90’s grunge with luscious, groupie inspired fur vests and coats, skinny denims in a gritty colour palette of biker blacks, stonewash greys and inky blue, and basics to compliment it all.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jeans – Riders by Lee, Bumster Vegas in Blizzard Wash $109.95
Vest – Riders by Lee, Groupie Vest in Arctic Fox $89.95
Tshirt – Nude Lucy $40
Shoes – Asos, Halfpenny heeled sandals $81
Clutch – StyleNanda $40

Now if you just have to have a piece (or 5) of the Riders by Lee Winter ’14 collection, it is now available from Myer, Just Jeans and online at the Iconic and Surf Stitch. Garments range from just $39.95 for basics and up to $119.95 for jeans and jackets. I know for sure that my groupie vest will be keeping me warm all winter, so get with it and come back to the 90’s with me!

I was an N.L.P Woman! #MBFWA

So the past few weeks I have been kept on my toes (quite literally in my attempt to be taller) as I was fortunate enough to be chosen as a dancer/model in the N.L.P Women runway show for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia!

Now normally a 5 ft 6 girl like myself would never be able to walk a runway in fashion week, but N.L.P being super bold and innovative, decided to use dancers instead of models to showcase the sporty and practical side to their glamorous swimwear.

Here are a few snaps from the show!

The response was absolutely amazing and N.L.P’s decision to use dancers proved to be a huge success!

A special thanks to:
MAC cosmetics
Schwarzkopf
Essie Polish
Palmers
H2Coco

and of course, a huge thank you to N.L.P !!!

You can shop the collection straight off the runway on STYLERUNNER.

I’M IN LOVE

Last weekend on a casual stroll of Oxford street, I walked past the Scanlan Theodore store and experienced one of those virtual lasso moments where the sheer sight of the garments pull you into the shop.

I was so impressed with every piece in the SS14 collection but in particular this white Webbing Halter Dress. The combination of the thick neoprene with the structured mesh in the side panels and skirt makes me weak at the knees, and if it wasn’t already gorgeous enough, the dress is backless. I honestly don’t think there could be any way to improve this garment, and I would go as far to say it is my idea of the perfect white dress.

This item has just made it to the TOP of my wishlist and I will not rest until it is hanging in my already too full closet!

Some of my other favourite pieces can be seen below.

Walking out of the store and away from this dress, I felt like I had left a part of my soul behind. But not to worry, I’ll be back.

With love,
