How To: Style A Leather Jacket (Minimalistic)

The ultimate essential for ANYONE no matter what season/climate or where you are in the world is a black leather jacket. I recently was at Zara the other day and spotted the perfect black glossy leather jacket that was perfectly fit (not cropped or oversized) with minimalistic silver detailings on the sleeves, pockets and collar. I’ve been on the lookout for the longest time for a good quality leather jacket that was the perfect fit and didn’t have too much going on. It was pure destiny that they only had one left in my size  and for a jacket under $250, it was everything I’ve envisioned in purchasing a leather jacket. For today’s look I was super casual and minimalistic with a black and white outfit, where the highlight of my outfit was on my lips wearing a bright red Nars lipstick. You’ll be seeing a lot more versatile looks on how I style my leather jacket in the future xx   I’ve also linked 5 very similar leather jackets UNDER $100! Check them out …

A Day At The Art Gallery

One of my favourite things to do during the Winter time is visit the art gallery and I do so every year when the weather gets cold. It’s such a place of relaxation as you wander aimlessly amongst the artworks and passerby’s in silence. I’m not exactly an art-sy person but I’m really into Renaissance paintings and works from the early European period. Here are a few snapshots of my favourite artworks from the Art Gallery of NSW.   P.s. Check out my ultimate guide to the perfect outfit and make-up look for a day at the Art Gallery!   

Affordable Fashion Straight From The Runway 18

Being a fashion journalist student is kinda like holiday-ing at a beautiful resort but unable to understand/speak the language; challenging but rewarding. I’m able to read and write and gain behind the scenes exclusive knowledge of the latest trends and runway styles but being a university student, simply cannot afford most of the pieces. I understand the daily struggle of browsing through your favourite designers only to realise that the one thing that’s within your price range are a pair of heavily reduced socks. That being said, I have located my favourite FRESH OFF THE RUNWAY looks and trends duplicates that are super affordable and stylish. Check them out and let me know your thoughts.

Fall 2017 Trends | Clueless Vibes & Mesh

One of the downsides of living in the Southern Hemisphere is that you are a season ahead (or behind depending on which way you see it) from the rest of the world. Media coverage and trends predominantly come from the US, Europe and the UK and because of our time and seasonal differences, we just miss out and have to end up waiting 3 months to wear pieces from Fashion Week runways. However after looking on WWD’s Fall Fashion Runway trends, I’ve picked up a few awe-inspiring and unique pieces that are actually well suited for us Aussie fashionistas. Their Fall is equivalent to our Winter, meaning that we can finally follow and look at pieces that would be appropriate to wear right now. I’ve taken some of my favourite fashion trends and have incorporated into everyday street style because let’s face it, although splurging on Balenciaga and Dolce and Gabbana coats would be heaven, it’s just not ideal. Statement cropped tops (from the Fenty Puma Rihanna collection) I am a fan of cropped clothing items …

Weekend OOTD | Denim Dressing

Hi guys! Today’s outfit is a super comfy and stylish one that is currently perfect to host under Sydney’s fluctuating weather conditions. I bought this denim dress from Topshop and this halter necked design can either be a hit or miss. It’s tight on the upper body from your chest upwards but then flows into a structured bottom which can make you look a little shapeless. However, because it was short, the balance between the box-y waist and the height was just right, elongating your legs and giving it the ultimate effortless party look. I paired it with some silver necklaces from Sportsgirl and my favourite pointy cut out boots from Marco Gianni. Let me know if you have something similar to this or what you would love to read in my next post 🙂

College Bag Essentials | Whats In My Bag

With the last day of Summer coming to an end and as we are now approaching the THIRD month of the new year, it’s time to replace your sunglasses with prescription glasses and your playsuits with pens and pencils as we head back into the college/school period. Knowing what to bring, what to wear and where to go is a hassle and with the stress of a new environment and figuring out your timetable and classes, the worst thing for anyone on their first day would be to forget to bring something crucial. Going into my third (and final year) of uni, its fair to say that I have a sound knowledge of the essentials and survival kit of what to bring so I decided to share them with you. Backpack/large tote bag with comfortable straps: An average uni day is divided into two sections,  60% walking to your lectures and 40% of the time actually being in class so you need to make sure that you have a practical bag with comfortable straps. I …

Date Night | OOTD

There is nothing more stunning than a classic navy (that’s right navy, not black) long dress that clings to your body and flows effortlessly at the end. Every girl should have the staple navy dress in their wardrobe as this refined classic colour suits almost every occasion. And unlike the classic black dress, navy brings a warmth of colour and lightens up any event and in my opinion, suits almost every skin tone. I purchased my navy dress a year ago on an online boutique store for a uni formal and found that it was very versatile to pair with jewellery, heels and various make up looks to completely transform the whole look and essence of this dress. What will you wear your navy dress to? xx

Backstage at the 2017 Fall Fashion Show

The looks are bolder, the models are bigger and the collections are even crazier at this years 2017 Fashion Show.  After scrolling endlessly on WWD’s behind the scenes fashion & beauty features, I’ve instantly become inspired by the dazzling looks, whether they include intricately detailed nail designs from the Libertine Fall show to the simplistic bold brows at Narciso Rodriguez, this year there is something fitted for everyone. Here is my take on some of the trends that I’ve picked up: Rich Burgundy Lips: Although its no ground breaking revelation, dark lips have made it big this season and doesn’t look to be slowing down. Celebrity reality star Kendall Jenner was spotted with a rich burgundy lip at the La Perla show. Pearl-esque Eyes: This year, the general trend was bold face and lips and simple eyes, keeping the eye makeup simple, natural and dewy. Replace your eyeliners with a nude shadow or glossy shimmer or, in this case, with tiny pearls and gemstones applied to the inner corner of the eyes. This intricate look …
