Delightfully Snug

IMG_1687

Today I bring you a short little post featuring this extremely warm, down jacket from Style Nanda.

Every single time I wear this coat I receive so many comments. Most of which sound something along the lines of – “Oh my gosh, you are so puffy!” or “That is the biggest jacket I’ve ever seen.”

Yes it’s true that when I wear this jacket I feel exceptionally puffy, but I also feel delightfully snug!

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Coat – StyleNanda

Jumper – Zara

Jeans – Rollas

Boots – The Iconic

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!

Sunday Comfort

 Today I bring you a short and sweet little OOTD post that I recently donned on a Sunday. This ones for the lazy days when you’re not quite in the mind frame to put together a creative outfit after a big week. Although very simple, I like the effortlessness of this outfit and I loved even more how comfortable I felt for a day of running errands.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Tshirt – Portmans
Shorts – Cotton On
Shoes – Topshop
Sunglasses – Kookai

Top Tartan

For my last post of 2013, I bring you this cute outfit featuring this TOPSHOP skort.

I feel like this piece is super versitile and can be dressed up or down to suit the weather wherever you may be this holiday season! I almost wish I was enjoying a white Christmas with some of you over in the UK, so I could tuck a fluffy white jumper into the front of the skort and top it off with some little heeled boots. But since it’s 30 degrees over here in Sydney, I’ll do my best to adapt it for summer.

WEARING
Skort – TOPSHOP
Shoes – Windsor Smith
Tank – TOPSHOP
Sunglasses – Zero UV

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas, and I wish you a Happy New Year!

See you next year!

Christmas Wishlist!

Christmas Wishlist!
Since it’s now the season to be jolly and the time for giving (and receiving) I thought I would help out any friends and family who were a little stuck on ideas, and put together a list of things that would make me a happy girl this year.
As the move to London is fast approaching and I’m stressed enough about having to fit my life into one 30kg bag when we all know I could fill that weight with shoes alone, I decided to opt for some smaller items and things that I would put to good use!
Fujifilm Polaroid Camera 
Large Selma Saffiano Satchel 
YSL Rouge Pur Couture in 206
Illamasqua Blush in Excite
Thierry Lasry Orgasmy Sunglasses
Rogue by Rihanna
Frends Taylor Headphones
If I could have fit all of the Rihanna for River Island Collection into this collage, believe me I would have!
Whats on your Christmas Wishlist this year?

BASICALLY…

IMG_0798

I am one of those people who absolutely NEVER dress weather appropriately. Even when I know that its too chilly to not wear a coat, nine times out of ten I will decide to leave my coat behind. Even when its way too hot for sleeves, you’ll find me tucking a cute jumper into into some shorts. I tend to dress for the mood I am in that day rather than what would keep my body at the ideal temperature. I seem to have this ‘I’ll be fine’ mentality which usually results in me freezing or overheating. I just never learn!

Todays outfit was one that I donned on my weekend trip to Melbourne. Clearly I wasn’t feeling particularly colourful that day, so I left the colour palette quite grey-scale, with the only pop coming from my nails and lipstick.

WHAT I’M WEARING:

Jeans: American Apparel
Top: Zeitgeist
Coat: Minty Meets Munt
Boots: Topshop
Sunglasses: Bondi Markets
Lipstick: INOXA in ‘Tangerine’

This was the first time I wore this coat all Winter, and it was actually Spring!
I’m sure I’ll learn my lesson when I move to London though. I’m certain I’ll be needing a lot more than this little grey coat.
Look out for the walking sleeping bag, because that will be me.

Until next time!
