Hi Everyone !!!!!
Boy Am i happy to say “IT’S THE FIRST DAY OF SPRINNGGGGG” !!!!!!!
I am sooo over the cold and I’m sure everyone is too – however it is still abit chilly…!
So what’s been happening this week in TLOR ?! Let’s rewind right back to the weekend !
Saturday morning Branka , Diana and I set out for an adventure at none other than Sydney’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival (21-25 Aug).
This year’s fashion festival was held in Sydney Town hall –MY GOODNESS ! it’s such a pretty venue !!
We watched the Trends show and it was just so amazing to be able to see different labels and new spring/summer trends.
Beautiful tribal, floral and random prints, colours of pastels, neon’s, bright and Bolds sorbet colours, laces, and chiffons. Lots of “mullet” high-low styled dresses and tops with trains, loose maxi’s… Everything from swimwear to casual, Summer dresses and Evening dressed.
Below are the labels that were in the show – Just click on their names to be directed to their website.
Toi Et Moi Sydney
My favourite part was the Closing though. No it wasn’t because it was boring !! IT was ANYTHING BUT BORING TRUST ME.
Akira Isogawa’s collection and runway presentation absolutely captivated me ! It was the perfect collection perfect set up for a closing.
I felt like I was in another world ! The music, The designs and the prints, the stage props and umbrella’s even the way the girls were walking on the runway. It was something unbelievable I loved it so much ! I think I’ll leave it up to you guys to judge with the video’s!
VIDEO COMING REAL SOON
What I wore ?!
My Lime Laser Cut Back Top
Accessories, Nails and Lips ?!
I styled this look with Orange and a bit of pink on my nails to break it up. Very Spring/summer, Sorbet and Bright
I chose this beaded orange necklace and it fits nicely just around the neck, however you can go for something long and orange too.
I don’t know where the necklace is from = ] it’s a steal from my in-laws jewellery closet.
Nails, I’m wearing Ulta3 Nail polish – it’s fluoro pink AND they are only $2
Lipstick is Chi Chi’s “LAH DE DAH” orange lipstick ! It’s kind of wearing off in the picture but it is such a nice colour for spring/summer. It’s a matte lipstick.
I never change my earrings but you can go for matching orange pink or gold earrings – whatever tickles your fancy = ]
You can wearing matching orange shoes. I just put orange on for the photo –
however to actually fashion week I wore MY black wedge heels from Target which I’ve previously Posted about.
Wedge Heels are definitely more comfortable to be walking around in.
This is what the back of the top looks like. It’s got a laser cut out print. I just wore a black singlet underneath. You can go white or any other bright colour you like.
Also if it does get a bit chilly, just pop on your favourite black jacket and out you go.
I just wore my city dressing one which I have also previously blogged about. It’s got ruched sleeves and adds the final touch to the garment.
For this outfit I’d recommend an orange bag, pink, or black bag.
Something like an oversized envelope statement clutch is very on trend.
If you like any of the items –
My Top is from The hot options range at Target. (click on link to purchase)
my leggings are the Ponte hot options leggings.
My orange heels are by GLAMOUR.

Happy 22nd Yasmine Parker !

Had a Brilliant Saturday !!
WHITNEY PORT SAYS THANKYOU !
Okay so EVERYONE knows how much i love Whitney !
Recently I posted about Whitney’s Road to Runway campaign – click here if you missed it
I also donated to her campaign because I thought that it would be nice to have the support of not only your fans but one designer to another it’s nice to have someone who APPRECIATES the process and the industry to support you.
So in return, Whitney Port has posted about me – HOORAAAAA
❤ Goodluck Whitney !!!!
If you guys are thinking about donating I have all the details in my Road to runway post that I’ve linked !
MONDAY – LOOK 10
Going for an interview ?
Well this is what I wore to mine !
Whilst Styling Clients, I notice that every time the word Corporate is mentioned they panic a little and go and pick the plainest jacket and pant set they can find and pair of with another PLAIN top ?
Corporate doesn’t mean boring ?
It just means smart, clean… You’re allowed to have trend colours, stripes, dots, random prints, long sleeve, short sleeve… whatever you want really !
As long as it’s not provocative ofcourse
So as you all know when you start working for a company that insists you buy their clothes.
You will end up having seasons and seasons of clothes !
So my picks were my new Target Limited Editions Blazer. $89
and my favourite Ponte Leggings- Thick, Smart and comfortable.
To smarten up the look a little I added plain black heels and voila done !
I didn’t add a necklace. However, if you must, just a small pendant would do with this outfit as it already has stripes and that’s enough going on !
You can also chose to tuck in the shirt if you are going to wear it with pants or a skirt right at the waist and belt it with either a cream/ivory, or lime coloured belt to add a bit more flair to the outfit.
Wish me Luck Ladies and Gents !
So I’ve spent that last four weeks at Target Carlingford rather than Castle Towers where I usually am !
It has been a great four weeks working with the Carlingford team. They are just like a family and i fit right in !
Such lovely people that I had the pleasure of working with. I’ll never forget them…
bye bye Carlingford – I’ll miss you !
kisses to you all !
So what’s on next week at TLOR ?
Well… It’s fathers day tomorrow, going to take papa out to Windsor – Nice and Chill
… and I also have to pack for Melbourne !
oh …did I mention…?
IM GOING TO MELBOURNE FOR SPRING FASHION FESTIVAL
hooo haaa I cannot wait to show you guys my fashion week outfits : )
oh golly that reminds me .. I have to pack my bags like.. ASAP !
Vogue’s Fashion Night out on Thursday 6th of September !

That’s all for now guys…

xxxx Much Love,
Happy Easter Everyone ! I hope the Easter Bunny Spoiled each and every one of you. I must say though, for once, I haven’t consumed much chocolate ha-ha
Thank god for the Easter four day Long weekend though or else I wouldn’t of gotten a decent breather. However, it wasn’t all break break break.
it was really nice to spend some “TIMEOUT” with my boyfriend away from college and work, my first day off in such a long time. ( Yay to everywhere being shut !) My boyfriend and I head down to Brooklyn ( no not NEW YORK !! – I wish ) where we had a little picnic for ourselves in front of the water. It was really relaxing, a good chance to de stress, watch the water, the surroundings ! I loved it 🙂 I’ve been so busy with everything, as I always am, that It almost felt like a dream. Towards the night we made dinner for my boyfriends family, two little master chefs we are ! Very juicy chicken breast marinated in soy sauce, honey and oranges with a side of oven baked and Italian herbs seasoned potatoes and pumpkin ( yummy !! ) and of course some salad ! It tasted so unbelievably Great considering the oranges !! Definitely a Team effort
We ended the night with Paranormal Activity 2 and 3 – Just for fun and to shit ourselves a little haha
We headed to our Armenian Church in Chatswood, Sydney for Easter as well as rehearsals for my brothers wedding this Saturday ( OMGGGGGG SOO SOOONNN !!!!)
Here is my outfit from the day :
So I chose to wear all black with only one animal print to keep it on-trend yet simple for Church.
I purchased this python printed top from a boutique a few weeks ago and have been dying to wear it since !!
My Skirt is a very old Forever 21 skirt from When I was in LA California in Spring 2009 – I love this skirt and will probably never throw it away as it’s saved me SO MANY TIMES ! hahaha
Some final touches – I buttoned up the shirt collar for a sharp look and added a strip of Lace trimming which you can find at any haberdashery/fabric/ribbon store. I simply chopped a bit off what I had bought, and tied it in a bow around my neck as you can see in the picture.
I also decided to wear black stockings – conservative for church. And one of my favourite jackets from my wardrobe. It’s a Little Black Jacket, but the panels, the thin collar and sleeve/shoulder design give it that extra oomph and make styling your look so much easier because it’s ALL THERE !
I’m striking a pose for you lot down below hahaha Fierce baby Fierce !
As for shoes and hand bags, I went all black. However I did want to go my new teal heels (from a previous post) and my matching ASOS bag. Another option could be brown or burgundy as both these colours sit well with the subtle tones.
I hope you all had a weekend as great as mine ! Let me know what you guys did ?
xxxx Much love, Yours Truly
