Another delayed blog post from May as guest blogger for Save The Last Pinker. It has been a hard task, getting to drool over and write about stunning jewellery from luxe labels. *Sigh*
Blush pink is the colour of Autumn/Winter 2014. It’s the must have colour palette for your winter wardrobe. Pale pink coats have been a favourite of fashionistas at Fashion Week events all over the world. An oversized pink coat works beautifully from the office to after work drinks. Leather is a winter staple and lends itself perfectly to a monochrome look with a pop of pink.
Enter the Sphinx Rose Quartz Choker by Ella Maximillion – feel like the goddess you are in this stunning draped chain choker. The rose quartz crystal pendant dangles elegantly from the centre of the necklace. This 92.5 sterling silver necklace is the perfect piece to wear over a plain tee for a casual look, or with a shirt or blouse for the office or the evening. This piece will certainly get a workout because of it’s versatility – it is a subtle statement piece that you’ll never get tired of wearing. Compliment the necklace with a collection of fine silver rings and a pale pink lip to pick up the colour of the quartz. After all, on Wednesdays we wear pink!

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.

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!
First 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.
Here I am enjoying a complementary beverage in the Mercedes Benz Star Lounge… breakfast of champions!
Carriageworks 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…
One particular show stopper for me was Betty Tran. My goodness, her dresses are incredible. This dress was probably the most dazzling piece to walk down the runway…
