Save The Last Pinker x Fashion Addict Next Door: Week 1

Image

This is my first week as the guest blogger for the fabulous online boutique Save The Last Pinker, and may I just say, I couldn’t be happier to be selected!

My style edits will reflect my favourite pieces available on Save The Last Pinker, paired with pieces that I’m currently lusting after. This week’s inspiration is ripped denim. Whether it be giant rips in boyfriend jeans or busted knees on your fave pair of skinny’s, there’s no denying that ripped denim is the trend to follow this season.

Let’s talk about the jewels. Krystle Knight creates the most wonderful quartz pieces in silver and brass, and the quartz is always the hero of every piece. Her pieces are also incredibly versatile and are the perfect finishing touch for any outfit. The rings I selected for this outfit showcase a large piece of quartz set on a gorgeous brass band. Perfectly edgy and cool.

At the moment I’m loving a good pair of ripped jeans and black sandals. This week’s style edit is perfect for the transition from Summer to Winter, and each piece is an essential wardrobe item for the cooler months to come. I’m a big believer in investment pieces that you can wear to death. This outfit provides the perfect blank canvas to show off your fabulous Krystle Knight quartz jewels.

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Weekend Edition.

I was lucky enough to attend Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Weekend Edition on the 12th of April (thank you Sunglass Hut!), and what a day it was!

ImageHere we are arriving at Carriageworks… I’m on the left and my gorgeous friend and fellow blogger Steph is on the right.

ImageFirst things first, my outfit!

What I wore: a black mesh stripe tee from Glassons, Bardot leatherette skirt, Kookai felt hat, Mac lipstick (‘Rebel’), Krystle Knight & Baby Anything jewels, and my trusty holographic clutch from Hello Parry.

ImageHere I am enjoying a complementary beverage in the Mercedes Benz Star Lounge… breakfast of champions!

ImageCarriageworks is an impressive venue and I can see why it was the obvious choice for fashion week in Sydney. During the show, we enjoyed a fabulous front row experience as well as a little gift bag. It was perfect for snapping pictures of the catwalk. Exhibit A: Talulah…

ImageNow let me give you a run through of a few key trends for the coming Spring/Summer season…

ImageAbsolutely amazing.

Leopard Love.

ImageThe above quote inspired this post. For anyone who knows me, they know that this is absolutely true. I am OBSESSED with leopard print. See for yourself below, inside my bag!

Now, of course, I realise that you can take leopard too far. Leopard is best worn with accessories (a cute clutch, bag or pair of shoes), or with a feature piece of clothing, whether that be a scarf, a skirt, a top or pants! Leopard goes perfectly with black and white, and can also look amazing with a bright lime and other brights!

Check out my favourite leopard pieces around at the moment….

My Hello Parry & holographic obsession continues…

Image

Some of you may have gathered by now that I have a little addiction at the moment to two things: Hello Parry & Holographic everything.

Once again, my two loves have combined in this beauty; the Super Oversized Holographic Clutch ($55.00)…

Image

This is how I styled the clutch recently when going out for a friend’s birthday drinks…

Image

One thing that surprises me about this clutch is its versatility. It goes beautifully with silver, gold and rose gold accessories, and adds a special little somethin’ somethin’ to any outfit. It is especially fitting with the monochrome trend, and will no doubt work beautifully with the up and coming Spring/Summer pastels. Ahhh. ❤

If you need further convincing of its amazingness, make sure you check it out here on the Hello Parry website.

Love,

Hello Parry: My new favourite online shopping destination.

Image

I was recently searching for a holographic clutch to satisfy my new obsession. After shopping around for a while online, I found the most perfect clutch by Hello Parry.

To be honest, when I say perfect, there were actually several which I loved. I ended up going with the very reasonably priced $38.00 fold over style… (buy me)

Image

I also got a beautiful set of silver rings ($18.00). They come in the following sizes per set: 1x 15, 2x 16, 2x 17, and you can choose from silver, gold or rose gold. Bear witness to their beauty below… (buy me)
