Save The Last Pinker x Fashion Addict Next Door: Week 2

Image

My inspiration for this week’s blog post is holographic accessories. It’s just so much fun – what’s not to love? It’s also surprisingly versatile and looks fab with any metal. Any item that adds a bit of fun and excitement to an outfit is OK by me.

I chose a black dress and shoes for so many reasons; 1) It’s black, enough said. 2) They still have a little something subtle going on. 3) How better to show off your accessories? But seriously, I love everything black. Monochrome is always my go-to look, and you always get so much wear out of pieces that are black or white because you can style them so many different ways without looking like you wear the same thing all the time. Black means longevity. You WILL get your money’s worth when it comes to anything black.

I’m sure you’re thinking, “just get to the bit about that incredible piece of jewellery already!”

Ok ok, I give in. Meet the ‘Large Moon Drop Ring’ by Amber Sceats. Incredible, huh? This piece is the most perfect cocktail ring I’ve ever seen. Silver is usually my metal of choice, so straight away it ticks that box for me, because I know it will go with my other jewellery. For those of you who normally wear gold, you’re lucky! Why? Because this is the kind of ring that commands your attention, therefore you can put your gold jewellery to bed for the night and take your incredible Amber Sceats cocktail ring for a spin instead. The navy blue colour of the rough-cut druzy crystal is mesmerizing – perfect for an evening look. It’s also adjustable, which is extremely convenient for those of us who have fingers that seem to sporadically change sizes. The ‘Large Moon Drop Ring’ by Amber Sceats is an absolute showstopper and doesn’t need to be supported by any other pieces. It was made to stand alone.

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.

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.

Glassons “Printed Racer Front Dress” ($49.95) buy me

OOTD: Black & White.

ImageImageI really love this white sheer floral top from Topshop. It looks fab with jeans or leggings for a casual look, or dressed up with leather. I personally like wearing a black bra under it – I feel like it looks more intentional and less like an accident that I’m wearing a see through top.

ImageYes, this is the infamous Zara skort. I bought it months and months ago. It’s one of those pieces you can easily dress up or down and goes with so much.

ImageImageImageLet me tell you about the amazing crystal ring I’m wearing. It’s from a designer I recently discovered called Krystle Knight. Let me tell you that it was love at first sight. The ring is sterling silver, and is called the ‘Balancing Ring’ which retails at $99.00. Extremely reasonable for the quality I think. I’m already trying to figure out which piece I need next. My bank account should be very afraid. I bought a size 7 ring, which is usually big on my middle finger so I’d intended it for my index finger. However, because of the width, it is actually snug on my middle finger.

The details:
Topshop white floral tee
Zara black skort
Windsor Smith ‘Manly’ sandals ($89.95) buy me
Kookai felt hat
Sportsgirl ‘Crystal 2 Drop Necklace’ ($16.95) buy me
Krystle Knight ‘Balancing Ring’ ($99.00) buy me
Michael Kors Handbag
Sportsgirl ‘Violet Crumble’ Lipstick ($9.95)

OOTD: 86.

This is a very exciting post for me because it features the first lot of photos from my collaboration with photographer Mitchell Baird. I’m excited to share the images with you and I hope you love them!

Image

ImageI missed the infamous Topshop 86 tee before it sold out in Australia. Luckily, I managed to score one on eBay. I really love it. It brings together two of my favourite trends right now; varsity and monochrome.

Image

Image

ImageThe felt hat I’m wearing is from Kookai. I love it. Only downside is it’s a bit big and would blow away with a strong gust of wind. First world problems!

Image

Image

I bought these Somedays Lovin shorts from Market HQ. I’d like to take a moment to say that I love Market HQ; their stuff is the shit. I really like these shorts because they’re not too short and they have that frayed/worn in look about them, which I love.

Image

ImageMeet ‘Manly’ from Windsor Smith. These sandals are the perfect combination of edgy and versatile. They’ve been comfortable from the first moment I put them on and they go with everything because they’re so simple. The perfect summer sandal.

The details:
Topshop 86 tee
Somedays Lovin ‘Below The Line Camaroes’ from Market HQ ($69.00) buy me
Windsor Smith ‘Manly’ in black leather ($89.95) buy me
Kookai black felt hat
Vintage Levis denim jacket from Urban Outfitters UK
Michael Kors Handbag
Krystle Knight ‘Balancing Ring’ in sterling silver ($99.00) buy me
