Mon LOD ! My little orange dress …

20140209-202530.jpg

You often here the term LBD or little black dress and how much of a wardrobe staple just one garment can be. However, from my recent adventure to Los Angeles I found myself something a little different, a little brighter, … Continue reading

Boohoo for Christmas !! The fashionable, Happy kind of Boohoo <3

Hello Beautiful People !

It’s the second last day of 2013 and I couldn’t be more happier to be here in LA, California spending time with my family.

The weather here is actually quite pleasant – Crisp mornings, warm days and slightly chili evenings. The transeasonal wardrobe totally works here !!

Speaking of Wardrobes, I know just the perfect retailer for those trend driven, affordable fashion-finds this month.

Boohoo !!

If you haven’t already heard of them, They are a UK based online retailer of affordable fashion who have been trading here in Australia for some time now.

Shipping is quick and inexpensive (standard delivery to Australia is free) and their Christmas 2013/14 lookbook is heavy with romantic colours and elegant patterns perfect for the Australian Summertime.

Here are some highlights…

Moroccan Sands

The Moroccan Sands range is rich with vibrant colour, bold prints and bohemian fabrics. Perfect for both walking on the beach and grabbing a drink in the nearest bar, Moroccan Sands infuses vintage class with modern patterns making the perfect collection for an ultra stylish summer trend.

Desert Rose

The Desert Rose collection is all about clashing textures in the most feminine of ways. Metallic and silk, lace and crochet, ruffles; anything goes when it comes to Desert Rose. Keeping the colours light, bright and sandy ensures that this collection is ideal for Christmas and New Year celebrations whilst maintaining an incredibly edgy aesthetic.

Rio De Jeniro

Inspired by the carnivals of Rio, the De Janeiro collection celebrates the life and soul of Brazil. Parrot inspired colours and big clashing prints come together to bring a collection of outfits ready to party in. With hues of luscious lemon, zesty lime and hot coral the De Janeiro range will make you the life and soul of the party.

Which is your favourite boohoo style?

Happy New Year Everyone !

Another Weekend Another Floral

Hope everyone is having a great Monday !

For all the Aussie’s I hope everyone had an awesome long weekend – I know I definitely had quite a nice one but it just went way too fast !

So Last Weekend I shared with you a very gorgeous, simple blue and white floral printed top, this week I’ve got another Blue Floral to share with you.

The weather was quite Hot and Humid, as it always is when Spring and Summer truly reveal themselves here in Sydney and in saying this A Lady must always dress appropriately !

I present to you a very comfortable, very lightweight cotton floral printed shirt dress.

Shirt Dresses are an all time favourite, especially for Spring.

Collared styles add that clean-cut touch to your look.

This outfit was just so comfy that I lasted all day in it. No Need to re-style it – Night time the weather was beautiful So I didn’t really have to change up the look.

Wonderful weekend <3

Crazy busy weekend, such beautiful and unforgettable moments with the people I love, and a splash of shopping !

That pretty much sums up my weekend…

Saturday morning began with a mad rush to our local “mall” as mum and I quickly tried to get some super important pre-christening errands done.

I was feeling very drained from the work week, struggling to get out of bed and get to it, so I thought I’d try and refresh myself for a big day ahead by adding a fresh pop to my outfit.

image

Nothing screams BRIGHT louder than a neon multi-coloured cross appliqued across your chest on a sheer pastel.

Add a neon textured scarf to it and VOILA you’re shining “bright like a diamond”.

Do we love it ?!

Limping around with my knee I just couldn’t resist ! I had to stop by at Betts,and well… we all know what happens when I stop by at Betts Smile

YAY – Brought new shoes ! *smiles like a loser*

image

With my knee, back problems and all, These shoes don’t actually have much of a high heel AND are a great spring/summer style that go with pretty much anything in the wardrobe.

Love the wood and thick black strap design – Cannot wait to take these babies on a Test run.

<3

Shopping was over – we quickly headed home so that I could get my face and hair “did” for our beautiful baby Alex’s christening and First birthday !

Half a can of hairspray and 40 minutes of makeup later, it was dress time !

It seems that when I have important functions there is always something wrong with at least one part of my body, but it’s okay no panic here, we just keep our fashion face on !

For this look I meshed formal with confidence and comfort and with that I present to you the beautiful Saskia Maxi from Zen clothing !

 image

A gorgeous blue and yellow print, elasticated waist, gold embellished high scoop neck and halter cut.

It was just perfect for all my “body” problems.

I wanted to hide my legs,thanks to knee surgery they were uneven and slightly muscle-less, so the smartest way to do it was with a maxi !

As the dress already had a gold embellishment on the neck, Accessorising it was easier than ever.

image

we added one of these babies.

Gold plated waist belt.

image

Completely on-trend and very easy to find.

image

After the gold comes the nude !

Nude beginnings ?!

Add a big envelope bag made from textured material to dress it up.

and instead of cluttering the look with bangles and bracelets, I just did it simple with a tortoise-shell like Fossil watch.

image

and finally the shoes.

Usually I would dazzle it up with a pair of platforms but due to my knee I found the perfect pair of not-so-casual flats.

Thankyou Therapy and my Boss for helping me hunt these down !

image

Snakeskin detailed straps.

and a little heel so the back and knees don’t cry.

image

Now we were ready to go to the church for the christening.

image

Congratulations Little one on this very special day, you have a whole life ahead of you an we are so happy to be apart of your life – Sharing every little step you take.

<3

After the Church comes the reception of course !

The wonderful parents and Godparents or Alex did a tremendous job at decorating.

Every Child’s heaven.
