Mon LOD ! My little orange dress …

20140209-201451.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, something more “Rhaya”. Let me introduce you to Mon LOD – my little orange dress.

(I’m not going to lie but I did have quite a fantastic shopping spree while I was there… Well, seeming as we are going to be honest, I had a few big shopping sprees ! My only excuse – that I am a fashion designer and I need new things not only for myself but for my bloggers too, so thankyou for being a great reason)

Enjoy the style up and let me know what you think !

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?

To see more Christmas collections from boohoo, please have a flick through their Christmas catalogue!

Happy New Year Everyone !

xoxo Much Love,

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.

Wonderful weekend. Complete.

It’s Naughty Meets nice, an attitude Splice | RhyheartsJEFFREYCAMPBELLS !

Like any other fashionista I have a weakness for shoes !

The bigger the better !

Big platforms, unusual wedge cut-outs and shapes, fierce looking features – an easy way to add a touch of KABOOM to any outfit !

What I’ve been eyeing for some time now would have to be Jeffrey Campbell’s, one-of-a-kind, YES READ IT AGAIN  “one-of-a-kind” platforms. I know we say that about every pair of shoes, but if you ask anyone who owns a pair, or knows of them, they would most definitely agree with me ! Not only that, but they are so uniquely designed that you can spot a pair of JC’s from a mile away !

So in case you hadn’t heard of Jeffrey Campbell here’s a few quick notes to save you the embarrassment and awkward silence if its ever, EVER on topic !
Hailed from none other than ( my favourite) L.A
Their designs are based on vintage inspirations as well as combining runway/fashion trends.
Sold across all of Asia, Canada, Australia, UK, New Zealand and the list goes on as they continue to grow.

Hope that helps, however if you’d like to read more on JC’s Bio Click here !

One of my Favourite and regular online shopping destinations NASTYGAL also stocks them ! What caught my eye the most this week was these 3 pairs ! It’s Naughty Meets nice, an attitude Splice !

Retail Therapy | Diagnosis by a Fashionista

There comes a time at the beginning of the year when a women (in this case ME and probably you as well ) needs a little something called RETAIL THERAPY.

Retail Therapy occurs when an individual is experiencing such things as depression, Shopping Withdrawals etc.

This very common disorder (specifically after/during the Jolly Christmas and New year season) is referred to as, (what I LOVE to call) Post-NYE depression.

It is a form of depression that most commonly effects women rather than men. It mostly occurs after the period of Christmas to New years and reaches its peak on new years day until about well… The time you purchase something, Many things…preferably online ( because you can have a zillion tabs open and shop from a zillion places at the one time – “PANTS HEAVILY AT THE THOUGHT OF IT – MOOD: ECSTATIC” !) to ease that sector of your brain that bleeps out every once in awhile begging for some retail attention.

Other cases of Depression that also result to Retail Therapy include :

Pre/post-exam Depression : When one is far to stressed to deal with “anticipation”, of an exam paper or the results, often resulting to procrastination at pre stage and anxiety yet relief at post stage. One can always busy themselves at the “mall” by window shopping/purchasing and also “check-out” stage if done via online shopping. This process takes hours as it helps block out any negative energy built up from an exam.

Post Relationship-was-a-Fail Depression : When one is simply depressed due to a failed relationship and/or sudden breakup. Individuals often result to copious amounts of food which is also referred to as “demolishing”, as well as isolation and/or I’m-a-tough-soldier-let-the-next-one-come-at-me stage. After This, ( heroic imagery) a lady steps up and faces the world with her wallet because fashion doesn’t stand still for heartbroken suckers !

Pre-important-Event Depression: The “oh I have nothing to wear”,or  “oh I can’t fit into anything” phase – grouped as whinging with mild tantrumitis in most women. This particular one covers many areas. ( Post – NYE depression is a sub category of this)

Many women (within this group are also referred to as Shop-a-holics) come up with such excuses, some of them you may have heard or may have come out of your own mouth:

  • Yes but I don’t have it in (whichever colour)
  • I don’t have anything to wear
  • I shared a coke with my Wardrobe, had a deep-and-meaningful conservation , made a promise to it that I’d replenish stock.
  • I’m Fat
  • None of them fit me
  • It’s so Last season/It’s So last year
  • I want something new
  • I’m depressed
  • I can’t help it – its a sickness
  • PAY DAYYYYY
  • Everyone has already seen me wear everything ( Dam Facebook tagging !!)
  • My shoes have to match the handbag which has to compliment my dress which has to be appropriate for the evening, then we have the hair that works with the makeup and i need a jacket in case its too cold and if that doesn’t work then… oh never mind – its too complicated let’s just get a whole new look for the evening ? yeah ?

Symptoms

Symptoms include ( before and during) :

  • Sadness ( not feeling spoilt and special)
  • Distracted
  • Low self-esteem.
  • Constantly on shopping apps.
  • “Watching/stalking” certain items and/or beings.
  • disturbed vision – e.g Seeing Chanel handbags instead of clouds.
  • immense ogling ( to individuals with colour blocked outfits or desired items).
  • Rage upon others (who buy your shoe size out in the only colour it comes in).
  • Hallucinating from the smell of pure leather.
  • Drooling at the touch of fabric and luxurious textiles.
  • mood swings combined with Hyperventilation and ecstatic-ness ( often occurs during checkout).
  • Obsession (with websites and certain stores).
  • Caressing/conversing with the credit card.
  • withdrawals (of anything) .
  • Sleep and eating disturbances.
  • Muscle pain in the calf/leg region from excessive walking in Shopping centres
  • Throwing tantrums at Clothes Racks, Registers or at people working at the store.
  • The art of being Oblivious (Maxing out and avoiding credit card bills)

If this is starting to sound like anything you are experiencing or have experienced don’t Fret, You are not alone, It happens to everyone

You may not experience all or any of the above but it doesn’t mean your hands aren’t itching to get themselves on some new items for a) the sake of it b) the health reason as discussed above or c) all of the above.

Cures

No Medication can be taken.

The only cure is to fulfil your Shopping urges.

To help with the process of curing your withdrawals and coming out of the POST-NYE depression bubble I have Listed some online Hotspots – So Please, set yourself a limit, Take out that credit card, Crank up the volume on your recent playlist and Browse away – There are millions of items waiting to be owned … BY YOU !

Couture On Ice

Hello Hello – And I’m back into it again.

As you’ve probably all noticed I haven’t blogged in awhile. This is because I decided to take a few weeks off after the show to do what normal people do … Work, Shop, more work, more shopping…see absolutely normal… ( what ?… It’s Christmas ha-ha and besides I did good )

Amongst that there has been farewells, girls night out, and a new one to the life of rhy … a time for a love to blossom. And this time I’m not referring to shoes, a new outfit or a timeless tiffany charm, I am in fact referring to the actual thing itself  … a boy !

My last post was just before the fashion show – all the crazy hustle bustle deadlines before show time !! The fittings went well and as for the show itself – It could not have run any smoother.

It’s the greatest relief – the greatest reward after all that to have your collection on the catwalk for people to view. Because I guess only you know what it took to get yourself there.

Here’s a few shots from the day/night taken from our very own Raffles Facebook page as well as some of my own.

enjoy !
