Happy Easter Everyone !!!!

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.

Friday

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 Smile

We ended the night with Paranormal Activity 2 and 3 – Just for fun and to shit ourselves a little haha

Sunday

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 ?

T is for Teal and Target too.

So I recently did some styling workshops for Target, where I had to mix and match part of the Target essentials range with other pieces to come up with gorgeous key looks for the coming seasons !

Target Essentials is a basics range by Target. It consists of business pants and shirts, denim, tops, and basic singlets that come in various colours and are a reasonable price.

We mixed and matched these items with core autumn/winter garments such as fur vests,colourful dresses, maxi skirts, printed shirts, oversized tops and winter woollen pieces. Majority of the looks were under $100 and if not that then $150. Which is great for a whole outfit including shoes, handbags and other accessories. A lot of people think that to be stylish means that you must wear designer,however it’s not about that at all – its about the way you piece things together, the final look, the composition. To have great style and a sense for it can give you a feeling that’s just as great.

The two main issues that were present during the workshops were more to do with consumers being concerned about budget and being in doubt about wearing/how they would wear certain colours within the coming trends.

If you like following trends and you still aren’t sure what colours to be wearing these coming seasons maybe this will help – Autumn/winter colour palettes: think | burgundy, browns, eggplant,teal, reds, tangelo, and Blacks. Fabrics include Ponte, leathers, laces and sheer garments. Details/appearances include various collars, lots of prints – two main = leopard and snake.

That just puts it very BASIC for you all – I think that’s enough for now haha

One last thing – As part of this blog entry today, I thought it would be nice to come up with an under $100 look myself with all the Teal accessories I have come to purchasing.

Enjoy !

Think style and budget–and voila under $100 outfit !

Dress from NastyGal – not available anymore – however there are some other great dresses that are on sale ranging from $17.95 – $35.95 That you could get.
