Neon Lace <3 | My Sister in Law’s wardrobe

neonNEONneonNEON…!!!

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.

Accessories !

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.

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

IMG_0838

Accessories, Nails and Lips ?!

IMG_0843

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.

IMG_0846

I never change my earrings but you can go for matching orange pink or gold earrings – whatever tickles your fancy = ]

IMG_0882

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.

IMG_0883

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.

bag ?!
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.

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

CHECK OUT THE ARTICLE HERE

❤ 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 !

IMG_0895

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

A short sleeve stripe pleat top $39

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 !

IMG_0898

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.

IMG_0900

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 !

IMG_0813

kisses to you all !

Whitney Port I LOVE YOUUUU !!!!!!

I’m one of those girls who never has time for television and reality shows, is always too busy patternmaking and sewing and working and doing like EVERYTHING besides relaxing LOL

Don’t believe me…?

Just ask my close friends who know how hard I work !

HOWEVER, there are a few things that have been exceptions…

Ever since my ‘09 visit to L.A I’ve had this constant longing for all those unforgettable memories and late nights, with amazing friends and family members, some I’d never even met before !

So when I started watching “The Hills” it not only allowed me to relate to their situations but also their surroundings and all the places they would go to, especially anything “fashion” related !

I immediately began to fall in love with Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port ! Their work experience/interning at Teen VOGUE, Castings, fittings, runways and photo-shoots – It all slowly started to reflect parts of my life, things that I was going through in my career and experience.

I’ve followed these girls through their reality shows: The Hills, then The City, bought their books and viewed their collections and seen them develop into designers.

Whitney Port’s Label – Whitney Eve – is one that I absolutely love.

On the website http://www.whitneyeve.com/ they’ve described Whitney Eve as “Eclectic and feminine” and I wouldn’t put it any other way !

Soft silhouettes paired with exclusive and pretty prints and patterns !

Dress them up and Dress them down !

There’s a few favourites below

So Quite Recently, Whitney Port has asked fans to fund her fashion show.

The brave young designer has made a video appeal entitled “Road to Runway” to help raise $50,000 to help her produce the “first fan-supported runway show”.

Port mentions in her video, "I’m doing something that’s never been done before – the first-ever fan-supported fashion show at fashion week in New York. That means I’m asking you, the friends and fans who’ve made everything I do possible, to join the crowd-funding campaign."

There are also a number of perks for people who contribute:

$5 = personalised thank you tweet

$50 = be one of the first to “rock” a piece from the Whitney Eve spring 2013 line

$250 = a visit to the New York headquarters in the run up to the show for a behind-the-scenes tour.

other incentives include gift cards, bracelets, and makeovers.

So far she has only raised 3,103 Dollars, and with just over a month of the ‘fix-funded’ campaign on Indiegogo to go – let’s help her reach her 50,000 Dollar goal by September 10 !

To donate : http://crowdfunding.indiegogo.com/WhitneyEveNYFW

 

“Road to Runway” – Whitney port !

SHE’S SO CUTEEE !!!!

OMGGGGGGGG !!!!
