A Grape day at the races

It’s that time of year again. We glam ourselves up for a lunchdate with the ponies. Yup Melbourne cup is here. What’s a girl to wear? Here’s two style ups with our lovely grape woven leather tote. I’m not really one to ‘fascinate’ on the day and prefer hats so the headwear is a little low key. 🙂  Place your bets!

Give rain the boot

 

Give Rain the boot

Winter in Sydney usually means one thing; a lot of rain. I forgot about this until I realised most of my shoes ended up soaked after a big lot of rain over a few days. Seeing that I’m not really a gumboot kind of girl, I decided to show two other types of ‘gumboots’ which are more my style.

I have worn gumboots, once when I was about 10. I managed to fill them while I was wearing them…making it v v hard to walk and look cool!

 

Mollini – Galosh Ocelot/black

Looking more like an ankle boot we have the Mollini Galosh in Ocelot. I love this boot! Its rubber and has elastic gusset panels, the leopard print is a nice change from black. Perfect for festivals or walking around the city. $59.95 from here

 

Melissa – Solider II

Next we have Soldier II from Melissa. What’s not to love about this boot? A military inspired
ankle boot with chunky sole and tread and 11cm heel height made from plastic! Ticks all my boxes. $195.00 from here

 

Give Rain the boot Military

Melissa Soldier boot and Koi Fish leggings from Blackmilk are always a winning combination

Anxiously awaiting the next rainfall.

Sometimes You Eat the Bear

So after checking out Streets Ahead exhibition I decided to do a few style ups with artwork
as inspiration. Here’s the first, who knew a bear graphic could get all girly. Did I mention how
much I lurrrrrrrvvvvvvveee United Nude shoes? Uh huh they’re ah-mazing.
Would you wear this colour combo?

Happy Australia Daze

It’s Australia Day once again and what to wear? I believe you can support this wonderful country without having to wear a flag or paint your face red, white and blue. This year I thought I’d style up using all Australian labels; simple and chic. No where can I buy me some lamingtons?!

Future Beauty

Two years ago I went to Japan for a holiday and it was one of the most memorable trips I have ever had. One of the highlights was going to Tokyo and checking out all the fashion. From the bustling shopping district of Shibuya to the crazy cool kids in Harajuku; Japanese fashion never ceased to amaze me.

It’s Melbourne Cup Day in Australia. Hearts are set a flutter today; not only from watching the race and hoping you’ve backed a winner, but also from Fashions on the Field. Here’s my version of Fashion on the field, all that’s needed to top it off is a glass of very chilled champagne.

The Office Animal

A lot of people shy away from animal print. I say, why? Its there to stand out, so stand out! I’ve chosen zebra print for this style up, add a pop of purple and black and gold and you’re winning. No fading to black for this girl.

Let’s take a moment to reflect

Collabs, I luv em. Romance was Born teamed up with Australian Artist Rebecca Baumann for their exhibition Reflected Glory. The exhibition has since wrapped up but lucky you I went along and took some pics. What did I see? Intense, layered dresses which glowed, glittered, reflected and spun like mirror balls from the ceiling of Carriageworks in Sydney. The hanging mannequins reminded of 90’s movie The Craft; with levitating girls (which isn’t a bad thing! I lurrve that movie!) Check them out for yourself, last pic is my fave.
