Anklet


One thing I haven't seen much of recently in the fashion industry is anklets. These gorgeous things can make even the ugly things we call feet pretty! I have a fair share of my own anklets (impulse buys!!) but I am guilty of not wearing them very often. It's probably because I spend most of my time in sneakers and boots and it would be extremely hard to pull that one off. Anyway if you're thinking of investing in an anklet or two, my tip would be to get one that doesn't twinkle everytime you move because that kind of put me off wearing them aswell. So go for pretty minus the little tiny bells you see in the 4th and 5th ones in the picture.
Here are some I would suggest! (Click the picture to go to the page) & if you really can't be bothered buying some but still want that look then use a bracelet, I'm sure no one will notice!
Hope you're having a fantastic day! xxx

I don't know about you guys, but I've been having a most uninspiring week filled with work and work and work. Today is my one day off for the next two weeks and hopefully I'll spend the rest of it in my sewing studio. Anyway I hope your week has been better! xxx\
p.s Exciting news! I'll be backstage at the David Jones fashion launch, eek!

Inspiration: Vera Wang

When you have a passion for something you tend to not only be better at it, but also work harder at it too.
-Vera Wang

I could  honestly spend my entire day looking through the Vera Wang tag on tumblr.

Kelly Wearstler Resort 2013

One of my favourite 2013 Resort collections This collection in particular shows how she's a mastermind with colour, prints and silhouettes. I think the amount of different things going on in this collections while still keeping it relevent would be so hard for any one else to pull off, but Kelly Wearstler, you've done it and I applaud you for that.




This is another piece I found of hers which I absolutely love. It's from her Pre Fall 2013 Collection. The geometrics of this is really what catches my eye, and she knows how to pull off perfect cuts.

 Hope you're all having a magnificent week, it's almost over! xxx

Steal her style- Ashley Benson

You may know Ashley Benson from her role as Hanna in Pretty Little Liars. Pretty Little Liars has got to be one of my all time favourite shows with the perfect mix of fabulous fashion, thriller type scenes and just a great plotline in general. The spotlight is once again thrust on Ashley as she plays her new role along side James Franco, Heather Morris, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens and Rachel Korine in the movie Spring Breakers (which looks like it's going to be a hectic movie by the way). Not only is she a healthy role model, she also has a wicked sense of style, in the show and in real life. I have noticed that she spends a lot of her time in blacks, whites and greys, but she knows how to rock it!






(The Key to these two looks is black, black and more black!!)


Hope you're having a lovely day! xxx

Hair Inspiration: Waterfall Braid

Having black hair, I was never able to pull off the waterfall braid. It just looked like my normal hair because you can't really see it, so I've always envied those with a lighter haircolour who could pull off the style! I also find it really cute if you do some loose waves at the tips. It's a really cute half up look. If you still are yet to master this style, or even just figure it out, you should check out this video.  It's a really great waterfall braid tutorial how to.

Chanel Chain Strap Purse

So I came across this quilted chanel mint chain bag on tumblr and I realised that I had one that was very similar.It's not chanel, but close enough!
Bargain hunters take note- mine was only $15 from Kmart, whereas for the chanel one we're looking at the upwards of a few hundred, if not thousands of dollars. As you can see we have the same quilted texture and chain strap detailing so I figure it's pretty much the same just without the branding.




I also wanted to show you guys my nails for the week. My attempt at pretty splatter nails, could have been better but oh well! Also not the best pictures but they will have to do.

Oh- one more thing! I made this cosmetics bag/clutch thing from the scraps of that dress I was making before using this DIY (which is extremely detailed thank god) from elmstreetlife. It would've turned out better if I had ironed the bow part but like it was almost 50 degrees today and I was already melting so I didn't want to add extra heat from the iron. Also if I had bothered to changed the thread to a more matching colour than white. But I'm lazy so I didnt... and then the machine was acting up which made it worse. But if you do it right it should turn out really good!
Hope you're having a lovely day! xxx

Wildfox White Label SS 13 lookbook

I don't know about you, but when I think Wildfox I immediately think of the distressed, the Clueless inspired campaign and jumpers with love hearts on them. I think their new lookbook the White Label Spring Summer 2013 lookbook is my new obsession. No difference in the cute department, Wildfox has pulled out the pink background and glitter heads to make the ultimate combination.
