…And a hint of Neon

Personally, I LOVE Popping bright colours Especially all the neon palettes in Sydney’s stores !

BUT there are some people who AREN’T as experimental with the crazy range of colours in season.

Don’t Fret -There is a solution to follow the trend and not be so OUT THERE !

There’s a lot of things I pick up on when styling at Target. It’s amazing how much I learn about clients habits, insecurities, and personalities just from what they choose off the stylist’s Rack.

One of the bigger issues is this idea that “oh it probably looks better on the hanger so I don’t think I’m willing to take off all the layers and try it on”. Perfect example : Majority would never wear my red snake skin denim right ? or a short fluoro belted peplum skirt for a corporate look? They are much more reserved and tamed BUT when they take a good look at what I’m wearing (yes it’s that outfit they doubted as they walked passed it ) it gives them this massive confidence boost to get on the sales floor and pick up all the styles they’ve wanted to wear but haven’t ! I’m curvy and absolutely un proportioned so none of them have the excuse “oh but you’re a model – it will always look better on you” Yes Ladies I have plenty of Junk in ma Trunk ! ha-ha

Having said that, If you are a more tamed individual who wants to follow the “ fluoro/neon” trend that’s hitting the stores do it subtly with a neon coloured belt instead.

It can add pop to any plain outfit without making you feel insecure or too BOLD – after all, it’s just a belt, don’t like it then just take it off or switch it… !

We have some great dresses and pants in store and online all with fluoro belts.

Here are my picks:


Very cute black and white patterned dress with an orange removable belt ! The bright belt gives more flare to the already contrasted dress !

This dress is $59 – to purchase online click on the image.



If you have plenty of tops in different colours then this may just be the pant for you. (even if you don’t, the neon belt is there to bring out your outfits)

It’s a very comfortable,skinny leg pant with stretch ($45). It also comes with a removable orange belt to help keep you on trend no matter what season it is.

Mix and Match different coloured belts according to the palette’s of your outfits.



Two little black dresses – one with lace and the other with awesome peek-a-boo shoulders ! Both $39 and have neon belts.

Such cute outfits !

You can even mix and match coloured belts for all these outfits as well as mixing and matching handbags and shoes.

Target Essentials | Brighten up the wardrobe Part un

So everyone always expects “basics” ranges and “essentials” ranges by designers and department stores to be boring and dull, and colour-LESS !

BUT here at Target our Target Essentials range is a tad bit different !

We may have basic silhouettes but with our BRIGHT Sorbet coloured basics you can add some more ZING into that Winter Wardrobe !

My two favourites from the new arrivals are our Ruched Cap Sleeve Tops in Lime and Pink

OH AND the best part is they are just $ 15 !!

What I love about these Bright Tops is that colour blocking your outfit is made so brilliant and easy – you can also dress it up or play it casual !




Lime or Pink ?

Take a Pick… or choose both !

To purchase simply click on the images and you will be redirected to the online store.


We also have some cute bright coloured flats instore – so Keep an eye out for Part deux

Stylist’s Outfit Look 2 | Wine

I like to change up the personalities each look represents every now and then – It’s not only fun but it also shows how people perceive you – so different – all from what you are wearing.

This look is much more timeless and corporate.

I chose a Sheer Wine coloured City Dressing top.

I chose this top because it combined so many design elements I LOVED.

A button up collar, Sheer fabric, and another favourite … Guipure inserts !


The pants I’m wearing are from the Hot Options Range at Target.

They have non functioning pockets for detail.

I love the fabric of these pants because they are just so comfortable to be in all day – especially at work.

I personally don’t have a lot of bottoms in my wardrobe because of the “junk-in-the-trunk” but this is one that fit perfectly without all the extra hip bulging bits ha-ha.

Another thing I added – They originally came with a white/black/grey snakeskin thin belt but I swapped it for a thin dark brown one.

If you ever get stuck with what to wear with burgundy or wine coloured garments – alot of the brown palette goes well with it.

You can purchase this pant online as well just click the image below.


For makeup I went for a more natural look with light smoky eyes. My lipstick is a Nude Attitude by Revlon and my eye shadow goes from a brown to a black subtle cat eye. For the brown/gold I used Essence Marble brown and the black I used RIMMEL. I’ve applied it very lightly to fit in with the much softer features within this outfit.


The Final touch : just a pair of black heels !


Outfit :

Top $49

Pant $45

Extras :

Eye shadows – $4.99 each

Shoes $40


All of these Can be found at Target Australia – specifically Target Castle Towers

and While you are at it come pay me a visit or book in a session !


there’s more looks to come…

AZ to the TEC

Amongst all the leopards,fresh fluoros, and pastel palette’s displayed in shop windows, there’s another sort of trend that’s been lingering around.

They’re not quite Abstract or Geometric but they’re AZTEC ! 

For those who aren’t familiar with this trend here is a little history (all you need to know for now anyway ! ) before we hit the Target Aztec Styles in store.

The Aztecs Originated from Mexico. Their Art reflected their great appreciation for insects and mammals.

Traditional Aztec Colour Palette’s for clothing include deep blue, green, red and yellow.

However, as contemporary Designers have adopted style and formed it into a trend, Designs and colour palette’s have become more diverse.


So what are my picks and what have we got instore !?


Hot Options Aztec Print Woven Tee $35.

This beautifully printed chiffon tee is the perfect spring/summer must-have ! Add some flare in your corporate outfit or wear it casually with some denim ! To purchase online Click here

Aztec Tube Skirt $ 25 ( click on image to purchase online)

A very comfy Aztec print skirt. Features a concealed elastic waistband. Wear it with a plain black cami and purple jacket or a purple or burnt orange tank to stay casual.

The Latest on T.L.O.R and Snake Print Denim <3

17th July – One week away from the final hand-in of hardcover book for major project. ( it’s been 3 weeks after marking)

Status: … Meh! Just a Tad fluey – no comment though…

This last Term of college – the production end of it all had gotten me quite booked up and busy.

Early mornings, Late nights, Sewing, sewing, sewing and more sewing, Theory and of course work…See the word “break” in there ?… no, of course you wouldn’t ! It didn’t exist !

After my final marking ( which I must say went quite well except for a few changes here and there), I was worried that I’d go absolutely insane going from a hectic lifestyle to a somewhat relaxed and comfortable break with nothing to do but NOTHING. On top of all the stress and ongoing to-do lists that would repeatedly race inside my mind during what was meant to be “sleep”, another question was always present… What will be next ?

So what came next ?

Well it wasn’t the wonderful break I’d been hoping for.

No trip to LA or New york, No hot Cheetos and Pretty Californian Sunsets, Not even a Europe or Eiffel Tower anywhere in there.

You see, when one studies fashion design it isn’t like most of the other university degrees where you can go vacation your heart away after you’re finished (unless you are loaded…baha!) but by the end of it there is no such thing as “savings” and you’re so broke from all the outsourcing and major project costs that you’re actually stuck right where you are… ( Yes believe it or not it’s true)

However, it didn’t turn out all that bad for me. The “OMG-what-the-hell-will-I-do-after-college-ends” panic mode for going from hectic to suddenly relaxed was wiped away and a new door opened. The full-time Stylist door ! Oh yeah baby !

So I’ve pretty much gone from designer production stage to the other end – Styling and dealing with all the pretty end products… THE SEWING FREE ZONE !

I’ve been doing In-store Styling for Target Castle Hill for the past two weeks, and I’m loving it.

I have my own little Stylist hub at the fitting rooms – So If you decide you need some advice on what to wear or want to know what’s on trend and what we have, you can drop in and book a one-on-one session with me.

So part of the job is obviously me wearing clothing from Target. I make up my own outfits per day and right here is where I’ll share them with you.

Every outfit, every clothing and accessory Item – All from Target.

So If you like something that I’m wearing from my Stylist’s outfit of the day you can easily go to your nearest Target store or come down and visit me and you can purchase it yourself. It’s that easy !

Stylist’s Outfit Of The Day | Look 1 | Snake Print Denim Reowr !!

Graphic, all-over, placement, and animal prints are all in this season and especially here to stick around for S/S ! So why not Bring out the Wild side in you with one of my seasonal Favourites – The Crazy Red Snake skin pant !

It is a nice all over snake print on a red base. A classic 5 pocket denim style that is Mid rise and a very nice cut skinny leg. Suitable for all sorts of body’s – yes even those with bums and tums.


These are my favourite pair of pants this season. The cut is absolutely amazing ! I’ve sold them to all sorts of customers with different body shapes and on each one it’s a miraculous fit ! It’s the miracle pant – I’m telling you ! haha The waist of this pant is a mid-rise. This means that it allows for people who are bottom and hip heavy LIKE ME – The skinny leg is also very flattering as it’s cut to a nice snug fit around the calf/knee allowing you to bend and sit in comfort whilst remaining its shape. The print is also not so heavy so it doesn’t look like a mess.


To Style this outfit – I picked a black Shirt with a high-low hem.

It also comes in two other colour ways. A Burnt orange and a Khaki. Both very on-trend, “Aztec” and easy to accessorise.


Add a Random Black Bag | Leopard print panel works well.


To accessorise – Stick with the same colour palette’s of red and black – a shiny red diamond look with gunmetal would be great. I’ve chosen a matching set.

Add a Necklace….


and matching Bracelet


Don’t Forget the Shoes !

( If you don’t have a good pair of black heels, why not go for a comfortable pair like these.

A nice wedge and average stiletto. Wedge and stiletto are in a snake print and the rest of the shoe is a suede-like fabric)


and the Lipstick.

Beauty Attitude’s $3 Lipstick is a very affordable price for a good quality lipstick.

A darker Raspberry red is great for brunettes and girls with darker features and a regular bright red for the fair skinned beauties.


So what’s the Damage for the final look ?

Core pieces

Pants = $49

Top = $35

Total = $84

Additional | Accessories

Necklace = $ 20

Bracelet = $ 15

Bag = $ 35

Shoes = $40

Lipstick by Beauty Attitude = $3
