May Faves | Nudes, Green Gables & More…

We have officially reached the mid year of 2017! It’s crazy to think how fast time is passing and it makes me EVEN MORE nervous to realise how there is still so many things I have to yet to do. That being said, May for me was a frenetic (fave new word of the week hehe) month. It was the busier latter half of semester at uni where everything was due sporadically and all at once.  It was also my first time at Mercedes Benz Fashion week and there were events almost every weekend for me related to fashion and bloggers and just another excuse to brunch with friends. I do have quite a few random favourites across all spectrums including a show I am now addicted to, and a must try winter tea. Fashion: Knee-high boots May was the official turning point for the colder months ahead and I am definitely not one for the chillier weather so throughout May I was wearing my black suede knee high boots from H&M I bought a few …

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 …

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 …

Don’t We Have It All?

  I am currently listening to a remix of ‘Lost Frequencies‘ (click on the song name for 2 and a half minutes of ear-gasm) and became immersed in recollections and ideas that have been on my mind recently as well as a sudden spark of thoughts so I hastily opened my blog and here I am typing away. I hope my conglomerated flow of ideas aren’t too confusing to understand. Listening to this song struck a chord for me; I don’t know if it was the upbeat bass that always gets me pumped up, or the simple lyrics leaving room for interpretation. Either way, I was suddenly taken on a journey starting from my childhood and ending up to present day. I was on a magic carpet ride of notes and tunes lulling me from my memories of the past to present day me. ‘I can fly high, I can go low’ transported me to when I was 6 years old. Fingers sticky from lemonade icy poles and wearing brightly coloured scrunchies, I dreamt of what I …
