So I wrote this a few weeks ago but have been so flat out I haven’t had the chance to upload this on my blog! Following on from my previous post, I’m currently obsessed with black. And leather.
I’m wearing a very monochrome wardrobe at the moment and am enjoying every minute of it. This week’s post is inspired by leather. I’ve just ordered a pair of long, sexy over the knee boots which are going to be an absolute essential this Winter. I’m loving asymmetrical/origami hem skirts at the moment as well, which are the perfect friend for over the knee boots. Still on my list is an oversized winter coat in blush or grey.
The perfect jewels to wear with my winter outfit? Here:
This Pushmataaha pendant and ring are absolutely incredible. Something about the calcite feature stone reminds me of leopard print; I think it’s the combination of colours that I’m drawn to. I’m usually a silver wearer but I just couldn’t go past these 22k gold plated pieces. I can picture them being extremely versatile… wear them to work, to dinner, to cocktails, or over a plain white tee with jeans. The options are endless. I love that the necklace is on a long chain with a drop of 41cm, because I think it makes the piece more wearable and enables you to dress the piece down more easily for a casual look. I always gravitate towards necklaces on long chains because they are so chic and effortless.
However you choose to wear the ‘Nubian Pendant’ and ‘Babylon Ring’, one thing’s for sure: they are absolute winners and you need them in your life now.

Do you recall seeing this baby last year? Autumn/Winter ’12 maybe?
If you’re anything like me, you absolutely loved it and need it in your wardrobe… like… yesterday.
Luckily for me, I went to such a crazy effort last year to get one (a friend actually bought it for me from Sportsgirl in QLD and posted it to me! < That’s dedication!), and it is currently hanging safely in my closet.
Luckily for YOU, Sportsgirl have brought the must-have Tameika Fur Parker back! It sold out in about five minutes last year, so make sure you jump on it! Sportsgirl offer layby and now also do telephone orders, so you really have no excuse to miss out this time ’round.
This parker is a gorgeous khaki green (slightly darker this year than last year I think), with detachable fur trim on the hood and the collar. It has a draw string waist which gives the jacket shape. It’s extremely cozy and is the ultimate Winter essential. While the price is nothing to sneeze at, it’s totally worth it. It delivers in every single way.
Buy Sportsgirl’s Tameika Fur Parker ($169.95) HERE.
