OOTD: Monochrome Addict.

Image

This dress by Glassons is so easy to dress up and down. To dress it up, add a red lip and some killer heels.

Image

The versatility of my holographic Hello Parry clutch is surprising; it literally goes with everything and I use it so often. It fits all my essentials and still has room to spare; what more could a girl want! I know it’s still going to look great going into Autumn/Winter 2014 too.

My Karen Walker ‘Super Duper Strength’ sunglasses have been my favourite pair for over a year now. The style and shape has been so easy to wear and I always feel super stylish in them. I know there are a lot of dupes around of this style now, but in my opinion, you can’t beat the original!

Image

Let’s not forget about the shoes. Every woman’s obsession. OK, that may be a slight generalisation, but lets face it… most of us really enjoy a good pair of shoes! I am personally loving the platform/wedge trend because I have a serious case of princess feet, and stilettos just don’t do it for me, from a comfort perspective. I was overjoyed when I spotted these babies in Wittner. They have a comfortable incline, the zipper adds some serious attitude/interest, and the peep toe style is very in for the coming Autumn/Winter season. What’s not to love!

OOTD: Floral Black & White.

I found this gorgeous black & white floral dress in Glassons and fell in love immediately. I love the print, the length is great, and it’s a dressy material too so very versatile. I threw on my denim jacket and trusty “Chunk” sandals from Windsor Smith for a casual look.

ImageImage

This denim jacket is one my favourite things. I bought it from Urban Outfitters in the UK in September. It’s vintage Levis. I love the colour and the oversized fit.. it goes with everything.

ImageImage

Now, the accessories. I’m a silver girl, apart from my gorgeous rose gold Michael Kors oversized watch. So whenever I find pretty silver things, I just can’t help myself. I’m loving quartz pieces at the moment. The necklace is definitely luxe for less, only costing $16.95 from Sportsgirl. My Krystle Knight ‘Balancing Ring’ is luxe for a little more, setting me back a reasonable $99.00.

My ‘Chunk’ Windsor Smith sandals get a good workout. They’re supremely comfortable and they go with so much.

Outfit of the day: shine bright like a diamond.

This weekend I went to a dear friend’s engagement party. It was incredible. Picture a light breeze, fairy lights, lanterns, candlelit tables, and “somewhere over the rainbow” playing softly in the background. The whole thing was impeccably organised and just plain magical.

What I wore:

  • Black Glassons dress ($49.95…. 50% off!) buy me
  • Leopard print Glassons sunglasses
  • Bourjois matte red lipstick ($23.00) buy me
  • Sportsgirl Tokyo heels ($79.95) buy me
  • House of Harlow 1960 feather necklace buy me
  • First ever attempt at a big bun using foam bun from Forever New ($8.00)

Love & best wishes to one of my oldest friends, the future Mrs. W.
