Goodnight Beautiful People,

xoxo Much Love,
So if you haven’t already guessed, today’s trend topic is NEON. Below is my lovely sister-in-law sporting this trend.
Vana wears this BOLD neon lime Lace top from Bardot. It has a super cute black tie up bow at the back and also a very nice timeless scalloped edge on both the hem and sleeves. Matte black A-line mini skirt from label Whitney Eve.
She has accessorised her look with a big Michael Kors Tote Bag.
She also wear a Silver Jewelled Necklace to tie in the look.
When accessorising with neon Lace it is important to remember not to overdo the entire outfit.
There is no need to bling it out excessively. Just one simple Necklace will do if the neckline allows it, as there is already a lot going on in not only the lace pattern but the colour too.
Now I know it’s usually a Summer trend, which is now frequently seen on icons and bloggers in the northern hemisphere. ( Wish we were enjoying it with you too boohoo!) but you can always bring it back during winter to add a nice pop of colour to your outfit.
Actress and Blogger Ashley Madekwe recently blogged a similar look.
Ashley wears a playsuit made from neon lace, faux leather and ruffles. I couldn’t have thought of a better combo in a playsuit myself !
I absolutely love when lace and leather are combined in pieces, it gives it character – it becomes more of a statement piece.

I have also created A StyleBook on Style Saint dedicated to Neon. Search me, “Rhaya Ratavosi” on stylesaint and it should be on my profile if you scroll down ❤
xxxx Much Love,
Today I’m going to share with you guys another one of my loves.
Another very exclusive piece.
The softest leather you would have EVER felt ! Absolute Quality material for an absolute quality garment.
A hot and sexy structured silhouette.
A flat double layered Peplum.
High Neck and Cap sleeves.
Fully lined upper with a very Victorian-style printed lining.
Centre front panel fully corseted.
Unzip the corsetry all off and wear it as a vest.
You can even have it one side zipped up,one side halfway and turn over the neck for a trench-like look
or have it up as is in the picture for a sleek look that will turn heads.
This beautiful, and very exclusive jacket is actually part of My Ratavosi Label’s Nostalgic Nuances Collection.
So Dark, so mysterious… J’adore ca ! …haha I guess that’s why I designed it and Made it with love ❤
Let me know what you think !?
xxxx Much Love,
Monochrome is in !
Cardigans, colour blocked dresses, patterns and prints, basic little black garments – This Trend is absolutely rocking it – It’s everywhere.
So where do you go from here ?
First of all you bring back the beautiful plain pieces in your wardrobe – yes like that basic tee and every legging you always wear..
and second of all you read this and be a little inspired for your next outfit.
Lucky for you I’ve included a variety of pieces and even linked them in this post.
So if you like.. you buy = ]
Let’s start off with a few dresses.
Piper Lane Colour blocked Dress
Colour Blocked Black and White dresses are so hot Right now !
There are a number of body con styles and two-in-one styles too.
Contrast darker side panels and/or a darker bottom to slim down the figure.
If you want to go for something with a print you can just keep in mind body proportions and print scale.
If you are more fuller on the top go for something with a small scale print.
If you don’t have much of a top you can pull off larger scaled prints.
or you could even take out the little black dress again – it always saves the day… or should I say night ?
If you are more of a 2 piece person the beauty of this minimalist trend is that you can wear the most “plainest” garments and you will still be perfectly on trend.
Wear a plain top like this one from Zara for a sleek day to night time look or add this crisp white waistcoat to sophisticate your everyday casual look.
Black and white printed pants are really popular this season too so it makes it that much easier to find.
Harem pants are always comfy – I’m sure everyone has a pair or even a pair of plain leggings.
High-waist shorts are a great addition to any look as you can wear them with plain black or patterned stockings or if the weather isn’t too cold –just by itself.
There are also a number of skirts in different cuts and prints.
Nookie – Slim fit mini skirt with a black and white sequin animal print.
Stripes are also very on-trend. This pencil skirt is from Portman’s. It has a very bold striped print and black contrast side front panels.
The plain black tee
To add some excitement to your basic black tee go for something a little edgy or different.
The above style has turned up cuffs and an asymmetrical hem – perfect when paired with some contrast wet-look or printed leggings.
something a bit more extreme… ?
If you follow more the grunge, urban style of fashion perhaps some white leather ?
One Teaspoon’s Bowie Leather Jacket is a great essential for the wardrobe.
Classic Biker style with a asymmetrical zip detailing and zip pockets.
V-shaped croc leather detail on the back – makes you Fall in love ❤
Label Three of Something have also nailed it with these two lovely pieces.
Both very wearable for a casual day or night time look.
Battalion Bomber Jacket from label Three Of Something ( above)
Samurai kimono also by Three Of Something(below)
and lastly as I always say… There is a Trench for every trend and this is it…
Traditional trench style with a striped lining twist.
The great thing about this jacket is that it is not only completely relevant to the season and the trend but you can definitely mix it up with your primary blues and greens for later on.
Such a beautiful wearable piece – A Must-Have !
For Jewellery Coco Liberace always have it spot on with their Chunky Gold and silver necklaces and wrist wear.
Or if you are after something a bit more timeless then there is only one place to go for that…Tiffany and Co.

So It’s the day before the shoot and I am madly getting everything done !
TLOR HQ is looking like quite a fashion jungle right now with clothing, hats,and makeup all scattered around the office !
We FINALLY Finished the final piece for our collection yesterday – The “High-Rollers Leggings” *sigh of relief*. They are an awesome pair of DECENT Super High Waist Leggings that can be paired with a killer pair of heels and a midriff, grunged up with a bustier and a leather jacket or maybe even paired with a cute dress. What your style ? There are just so many looks, trends and cultures you can satisfy with just one pair of leggings !
I just cannot wait to share the whole collection with you !
I’m sure you’ve seen the photographs from my men’s and women’s marking day but what you haven’t seen are the new pieces added to the collection. As you all know its quite fun at TLOR Headquarters so my lovely PA and I thought it would be fun to do another “ dress up Session” – a little sneak preview of the classy craziness we are confidently capable of !
There are 6 more looks So WATCH THS SPACE for the Shoot day updates !
xxxx much love, Yours Truly
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 !
Like the shoes above ??? Check out NASTYGAL’s collection and more from their Jeffrey Campbell range here
or better yet, if you live in OZ like I do, then head down to your nearest Tuchuzy store and check them out !
