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.
We Are Handsome
Toi Et Moi Sydney
Bless’ed Are The Meek
Flowers For A Vagabond
Bec & Bridge
Watson X Watson
An Ode To No One
Michael Lo Sordo
Ginger and Smart
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.

Again I felt like I was elsewhere, Beautiful Candle-lit surroundings, Garden Set-up, Rainbow cake and Strawberries, a bonfire and plenty of finger food !
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
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 !
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 !
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 ?
