If you haven’t seen the awesome Betts campaign yet, it’s a must see.

The new campaign, titled ‘Beautiful Rebel’ takes inspiration from the punk/ grunge that is a fun and cheeky concept that has allowed Betts to build a collection tailored to the new Betts for Her concept.

Betts is a family brand that has been operating for 122 years and it is WA owned. They are onto their 5th generation of family members running the company and they currently have over 110 stores nationally. The concept of the brand is ‘chiconomics’ in that Betts are affordable, fashion forward and are always bringing out new styles that keep up with the trends.

Check out their behind the scenes video today and their newest collection available today!

Outfit Post: Lucid Dream

Photographer: Ramon

Hello my lovely readers! We ventured out to The Rocks around the wharf for this shoot, saw many people having a nice Sunday morning stroll and a wedding photobooth being set up at 10am for an evening reception! Wow!

I must admit, I love this top and have worn it 3 time this week alone and is part of my go-to outfit pile. The top goes with everything! The 3D roses top is from the LookBook Store.

image

I finally found another top that I can wear these lovely Premonition Designs shorts. I love how the blush and the mint colours compliment each other so well.

image

The day before, we had ventured out to Cockatoo Island for the Biennale of Sydney… I was greatly disappointed with the artwork on display this year but some of the interactive artwork were outstanding, just wish there was more like the previous Biennale of Sydney festivals. I did have the opportunity to work with one of the festival’s photographers to help with some content on promotional material so you may or may not be seeing me on their website.

image

While taking photos at the wharf, I was getting anxious and self conscious with the people around. I really don’t know how fashion bloggers have the guts to take outfit shots in the city with so many people around and all these judging eyes watching you.

image

image

image

These shoes have been kindly sponsored by Zu Shoes. They are amazingly comfortable and they have literally been on my feet since the day I got them. I love the design and they aren’t too high.

image

Please excuse the scratches on my leg, Bella has resulted to biting for attention which in turn has resulted in scratching, scaring and pain but we still love her to bits and are trying out best to weed her off this annoying habit.

image

image

More outfits to come. I have scheduled another 2 shoots this weekend and have just attended a fashion event :) I had also played host to another house guest and a birthday. Also, if anyone have any ideas on how to throw a baby shower, please message me! I have 4 months to plan and finding a venue has been the massive hurdle so far.

I’m currently watching the Little Mermaid and getting in touch with 5 years old Camille to relax my mind and remind myself that I’ve only seen 1/4 of my life and still have 4/3 to go and to sit back, take it all in and to stop rushing and stressing so much.

Outfit Post: Game Changer by Style Syndicate

Photographer: Ramon

Recently, a good friend of mine had opened up a store on Oxford Street, Paddington; Style Syndicate (formerly Maple Ave) and I couldn’t be any more prouder of her. She has literally made her dreams come true and worked extremely hard to get to where she is today and I admire her so much for her determination and spirit. Seeing her move from a buyer to starting up a Facebook store to starting up an online store to starting a pop-up store to opening a physical store has been an amazing journey and inspirational.

I will have more collaborations with Style Syndicate on future posts but in the meantime, check out the Style Syndicate website today to see all the great deals! They are a local Australian store and offer free express shipping.

image

I love this dress from Style Syndicate. It’s a different take on little black leather dress and a maxi. I love how the leather and the bold print go so well together and the design speaks for itself. What I love is that the back of the skirt is cotton so the dress is very breathable.

image

image

I paired the dress with sky high heels by Zu Shoes to add a bit of shine to the look and matched the gold metallic details of the shoes with the gold details on the Louis Vuitton Speedy.

image

The back of the dress is a gorgeous maxi. It’s not too long and won’t drag to much on the floor. I stand as a very short 160cm so most girls would be able to pull this look off wearing gladiator flats.

image

image

We’ll be shooting more as well as trying to entertain visitors from overseas and interstate this weekend. Unfortunately, due to work, bad timing and the lack of confidence, I overlooked Sydney Fashion Week but may have the guts to apply for accreditation for the next shows. I do have some contacts so I will be showing some of the lines on my blog when I get a hold of the photos so stay tuned!

Outfit Post: Illuminate - Sneak Peek

Photographer: Ramon

This weekend included flower markets, a fashion event, entertaining an interstate guest, hosting a birthday party, an early trip to the airport and shoot 2 outfit posts.

I had the amazing opportunity to work with Sheinside for this look. I wasn’t entirely happy with how the shoot turned out and will reshoot it again so in the meantime, take this post as a sneak peek at a new outfit post we’ll be shooting for my blog.

"We realise the most important part of our success is our customer. This is why we are focused on delivering an exciting shopping experience and making sure that our high standards of quality, value for money and service are always met." Sheinside prioritises the customer and offer free shipping! Check out their website today to see what they have. Their range is so large and they always upload new stock daily.

image

After seeing this dress worn on many fashion bloggers on Lookbook.nu and Instagram, I finally have my hands on one. I love the mesh, the leather, the cut-outs, the sleeves and the pencil cut dress.

image

Again, we ventured our way to The Rocks bright and early after dropping off a friend at the airport. Unfortunately for us, my nerves got the better of me and couldn’t get proper shots due to the fear of the public judging me. I have told myself this weekend, I’ll try have more confidence. 

image

The leather, lace and mesh go so well together and the design is eye-catching. I paired the dress with shoes from Zu Shoes as I wanted to keep them nude to highlight the dress and not have anything take away from the dress. I also took out my trusty Louis Vuitton Speedy 30 to match the gold hardware with the gold on the “Yolo” heels from Zu Shoes.

image

The back of the dress has a cute cut-out and front lace design is replicated and continued through to the back.

image

You’ll see this look up again on my blog soon with much better photos with a much more confident fashion blogger and a much more vibrant face with more than 5 hours sleep.

I finally have a free weekend this weekend before I jet-set to Melbourne for work which means no Sydney Fashion Week for me this season. I am still working on a couple of projects, decorating the house for Easter and planning Easter and ANZAC holiday activities. 2014 is going by so fast and I’ve been so thankful. I have more collaborations in the works and will post them on my blog soon!

Outfit Post: Undefined

Photographer: Ramon

A huge sorry for the late post of this outfit. I had posted a sneak preview of this outfit a wee while back but have only received the photos today. This outfit has been kindly sponsored by the lovely people at the LookBook Store and Stylight.

I had the honour of teaming up with Stylight for this look.

"STYLIGHT is the best place to discover fashion every day. Millions of people use STYLIGHT’s website and app every month to get inspired by looks created by the community and to discover great products from fashionable brands. If you find a product you really want, you can easily buy it from one of the shops featured on STYLIGHT."

Follow me on Stylight: http://www.stylight.com.au/frillyskirts/

image

The crochet top is from the LookBook Store and don’t forget they over free shipping worldwide! The top is amazing and goes so well with most of the bottoms I have in my wardrobe.

image

image

The top is gorgeous and I love the detailing of the crochet which is continued through to the back of the top. You’ll see this top in future outfit shoots, it goes with so many of my bottoms.

image

We have been fortunate that a friend has decided to clean our backyard for us so that we can use it for entertainment and photos! I’m so grateful for my friends.

image

image

Lately, I have been a huge fan of hats and I can’t get enough of them when styling an outfit. I love it balances the colours and helps make the outfit feel more casual.

image

image

image

The skirt is by Cameo the Label and it is exquisite and one of my favourite skirts in my wardrobe. The laser cut design in the leather is so unique and the skirt is well constructed. I love how the leather also flares out.

image

Recently, we’ve decided to start shooting early on Sundays so that we can beat the foot traffic and also get out of the house and enjoy the beauty of Sydney.

image

Stay tuned for more to come on my blog!! I know I have been saying this for a while but yes, a giveaway of a couple of dresses is coming soon. I have been shockingly busy recently and believe it or not beginning to fall in love with Sydney.

Outfit Post: Sunshine Punch

Photographer: Ramon

I’m back with an outfit post. My apologies for such a late post, I was eager to post something out today and am willing to stay up till midnight to publish one. We decided to stay at the Amex Building to take a photo of this gorgeous blouse by the lovely people at Elliatt.

The blouse is amazing quality and I love the rainbow detailing. It’s subtle and so gorgeous.

image

I have been buttoning up my shirts all the way to the top lately and I’m loving the style. I paired the gorgeous top with a leather skirt with studs. A skirt I have missed wearing and forgot I had until I was looking back at old outfit posts. - Yes, I think another wardrobe cleanse is a must.

image

I love how the rainbow lining is carried through to the top of the blouse, the collar and even on the sides of the sleeves. It helps the usual white blouse stand out and it’s very unique. Nowadays you see a sheer blouse with cut outs but I love how Elliatt has again thought practicality and design.

image

image

We had around 15 minutes to shoot this look. Our parking timer was coating down so fast and we didn’t want to get a pesky parking ticket. We do love this location and will be heading back for future outfit posts.

image

I am still loving the hat trend and have been sporting a hat for almost a year. It gives a look a little more attitude and it was a bargain $5 from cotton on!

image

I have realised that I have been overusing my bag lately and have decided to put it on rotation. The prada just has amazing compartments and it looks like I’ll be investing in a bag organiser so that I’m not constantly sifting through my bags for a few minutes to find something in there.

image

The rainbow lining design is followed through to the back of the blouse. It’s so beautiful.

image

image

Oh gosh my hair is too long now! I fear that when I do eventually chop it all off, I won’t have the ombre effect that an unfortunate event has caused which benefited me in the future. I’m still on the hunt for a hairdresser but looks like I’ll be walking into one soon! The feeling of when you are waking up in the morning, you use your elbows or your hand for support to push yourself up and you pull your hair at the same time really hurts.

image

Yes, my boots do need a bit of a cleaning but I quite like the rugged look and how well the Jeffrey Campbell Litas have aged. I can walk in these shoes for hours and still feel comfortable!

image

image

This weekend we will be doing a couple more shoots for a couple more collaborations. I am feeling so blessed that I have been given these opportunities. i know that I have been absent from Lookbook lately but will begin posting again tomorrow on a more regular basis. I have been so busy with work and projects but will be on top of things hopefully.

image

image

As I write this post, I’m watching (out of the corner of my eye) Paranormal Activity 5 and I am scared and feel nauseous at the same time. I don’t do too well with found footage/first person cinematography and scary movies.

I’ll be back with more outfit posts soon! Thanks again for all your support. I’m going to attempt to finish the movie without feeling too dizzy and freaked out by the scenes.

Outfit Post: Yin and Yang

Photographer: Ramon

We’ve finally ventured further than 15kms to do a few photos shoots and finally bring back quality to future outfit posts. Ramon’s started to find his love for photography again and I’m trying to get the courage to have my photo taken in public areas in front of people.

I’m back again wearing a gorgeous dress by Daniel Avakian. The structure is well contracted and the design is stunning. I love how Daniel Avakian has put together 2 wonderful materials that compliment each other so well. The dress is not too short, not too tight and conservative.

image

The shoes are from another local Australian retailer; Zu Shoes. Their new range has something for everyone for formal and casual occasions. I fell in love with their “Yolo” design and it comes in black or nude. The strap has a stunning metallic detail on it and I love the attitude it gives to nude shoes.

image

We ventured out to The Rocks where we could enjoy some of the amazing views Sydney has to offer. We had picked up a friend here a few weeks back and thought it would be a great place to take photos.

image

image

The American Express building has such great architecture, the design is stunning and modern. We loved the checkered print on the building and it made a really nice backdrop for this shoot.  

image

I’m still looking for a good hairdresser I could trust my hair with. Until then, I think my hair will end up past my rear end before I know it! I have also considered getting highlights again but don’t want to jeopardise my still recovering hair from all the bleach damage from 4 years ago.

image

image

I have decided that this year, I’ll be taking more mini trips outside of Sydney to relax and have some me time. I’ll definitely be bringing these shoes with me to keep me company.

image

The favourite part of the dress for me are the subtle cut-outs in the front. It’s not too overbearing and is such great design work in my opinion.

image

I love Daniel Avakian's designs and I can't wait to see what more he comes up with. I've seen some of his drawings and his talent for design is incredible and inspiring.

image

The front of the dress is made with leather material. I love how it’s not leather all over so that it’s breathable, something that is needed with Australia’s weather.

image

image

I have more outfits coming soon on the blog, I’m just patiently waiting for the photos to be edited and I’ll  be able to post them for you guys.

I’ve been so busy with planning and before I knew it, we’re almost 4 months into the new year and Easter is fast approaching! Time really is my enemy.

Outfit Post: Blush

Photographer: Ramon

I had the honour of collaborating again on another outfit post with the uber popular online store; LookBook Store.

I got to style this amazing blush 3D roses off shoulder sweater and the weather dropped under 27 degrees so I was finally able to wear my leather Sass and Bide pants without sweating.

The detailing of Sass and Bide is exquisite and the design of the pants are so unique. They always pride themselves in their quality and I love how they have made their mark in the international market.

image

I wanted to soften the edgy look of the leather pants by pairing it with the gorgeous rose top. Perfect to wear during summer and winter <3

image

I love how you can wear the top off-shoulder or just showing off your collar bones.

image

image

Luckily, I still had some roses lying around the house to hold as an accessory for this shoot. The top looks very delicate but it’s really good quality and has a very thick lining.

image

You’ll definitely see this top more on my blog. I’ve been meaning to style it with other pieces in my closet but trying to find the time to do outfit shoots, especially with unexpected rain and storms that have been appearing out of the blue in Sydney has been annoying. Predicting the weather is very hard theses days, especially when even the weatherman/woman get it wrong more days.

image

I paired the look with my Louis Vuitton Eva clutch. I haven’t had the pleasure of using this clutch as often as I used to as dinner dates and semi-formal events have dropped off my schedule due to lack of funds. I love how the brown and gold accents compliment this look.

image

The detailing of the pants are amazing. When I found them for sale at $50 at the Sass and Bide outlet that has recently opened up at Sydney DFO, I had to buy them! I’ve been fortunate that they always have my size in stock but with being unto 70% off, their items go quick.

The pattern is gorgeous and I can’t wait till it gets cooler in Sydney for I can wear these babies again.

image

I’ll be trying to schedule a few shoots this weekend in amongst some projects that I’ve been working on lately. I’ve been super swamped with weekend activities and super tired trying to keep up with house duties (also it doesn’t help when I can spend hours browsing and procrastinating). I’ll hopefully get on top of things soon!

image

The back of the pants aren’t leather so it helps your skin breathe underneath.

I have been contemplating cutting my hair by a few inches and actually seeing a hairdresser for the first time in almost 3 years but I’ve been putting it off for so long for the fear my hair would be ruined like one of my past horror experiences. Once I gain the courage to finally go to a hairdresser again, I need to leave me some time to cut my own hair!

image

This weekend we’ll be heading over to the beautiful Cockatoo Island! I can’t wait, it’s been a year since I’ve been and it’s one of my favourite places in Sydney. I must remember to wear flats as last time I wore heels and my feet weren’t too happy with me at the end of the day.

Till next time my lovely readers <3

Outfit Post: Wednesday

Photographer: Ramon

I had the pleasure of working on a few outfits with the LookBook Store who stock some amazing styles and I love how they post what it looks like on real people so you can see how it would look on you. Their Instagram also features posts from real users who have purchased from them to showcase how they have styled their purchase.

image

image

I got this amazing black and white dress. It’s so cute and the first time I saw it, i reminded me of Wednesday Adams from the Adam’s Family. It’s so cute and chic-gothic at the same time. I was just missing the pigtails.

image

That morning, I had bought some roses, carnations and orchids from the flower markets and thought that I would sweeten up the look with just a rose and it worked! I also wore wayfarers to cuten up the look and make it less serious.

image

The dress is gorgeous and the length isn’t too short or too long on me. It’s very light material so it can be worn during summer and during autumn when summer tends to overstay it’s welcome.

image

image

After having some busy weekends, we weren’t able to get away from home to do outfits posts so thankfully, a friend had volunteered to clean our backyard so it’s now presentable and we can finally take photos here again.

image

image

Recently, we have been looking back at old posts from 2 years ago and decided to bring back the quality posts and photos that we used to bring you guys when we first started and had more passion. Will start changing it up a bit more. Time is really out enemy nowadays and with most of the popular fashion bloggers taking their photos at 7am, I will have to start going to bed super early to avoid lack of sleep.

image

I have more outfits that I’ll be styling from LookBook Store and am so thankful that I’ve had this opportunity. I’ve been admiring their stock since watching them start a huge following on Instagram. I feel so honoured to be able to work with them. They offer free shipping worldwide so don’t forget to check out the LookBook Store website. Stay tuned for more!
