 Karrinyup Shopping Centre pulled out all the stops to officially launch into the Spring Summer ’14 season. The VIP event was held at the centre earlier this week. Guests were treated to live illustration, a catwalk preview and a style session with Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton, the stylish duo behind the blog, They All Hate Us

I have been big fans of these two for a while and after meeting them can safely say my style crush has now developed into an all round girl crush!!
The ladies were just so darn likeable, funny and down to earth, it is easy to see why they are excelling at what they do. 
They are also big advocates for pairing designer pieces with more affordable high-street items. Elle admitted to wearing a $40 H&M outfit to fashion week previously, shocking her fellow fashionistas! We also learnt that Elle can not live without her denim shorts (or her curling wand!) and Tash has to have a weekly blowdry to keep her looking and feeling good, because let’s face it the hair is just as important as the outfit right?!

The lovely Mekel Illustration showcased her amazing talent with a live illustration of the girls as they chatted onstage.

The Edit: Off the Shoulder


As we officially welcome Spring into our lives once more, it is time to start preparing for the sunny days ahead. (Although, who am I kidding? I’ve been ready for Spring since the first of June!)
 
Today’s edit is all about the style that is making a comeback. Yep, I bet you thought the ‘off the shoulder’ trend had died a few decades ago, but as the temperature (very slowly) rises and we look forward to the warmer weather, baring your shoulders is taking off!   

Will you dare to bare (your shoulders) this Spring?

Wearing: Mink Pink TopHello Parry Skirt, Betts Boots – sold out (similar here and here), French Connection Bag (similar here)


Every time I wear something by Mink Pink I am transported back to the 90’s.
  Being an awkward teenager I went through many (questionable!) fashion stages in the nineties, one of those of course was the ‘Clueless’ phase. My favourite fashion moment of this time was a red, black and white tartan shift dress that I wore with knee high socks. I wore it a lot. I even changed up the knee high socks occasionaly switching from black to white. It was also right around the time I decided I wanted to become a fashion designer and the first piece I ‘designed’ (never quite made it to production!) was a purple cropped t-shirt with a giant velvet, burgundy heart in the front. (Another nod to the iconic movie!) 


Although this top by Mink Pink is clearly not influenced by clueless, the 90’s vibe is still strong! I love the high neck and sleeveless style and well, leopard print is my favourite colour. I styled it with a bright skater skirt to complete my trip down memory lane. All that’s missing is the knee highs! 


What is your favourite fashion moment of the 90’s?

Wearing: Saints + Secrets Black Lace TopSportsgirl White Skirt (Old – similar here), Black Heels (similar here ), Saint Laurent Clutch.


Who doesn’t love a bit of sheer black lace? 

Walking through Myer the other day I noticed a label I hadn’t seen before, Saints + Secrets. I did a double take when I saw this top even though my internal finance department screamed at me to keep walking (I had just been to the new Zara store opening!). My love of lace got the better of me and a purchase was made. I love how the sex appeal of the top is balanced out with the longer sleeves and the lace detailing is just perfection!
I’m quite certain that I made the right decision with this purchase. You can’t go wrong with black and lace, right? I even think my nerdy inner bean counter would agree! 

Halfway to the weekend!! We got this!

Monday again! Welcome to a brand new week. Hope everybody had a fabulous weekend! 
As I type this I am desperately trying to watch the VMA’s live online which is proving to be very difficult and quite annoying. I just wanna see Bey!!*

Anyway, moving on! Today’s outfit features my new go to black skirt. I only recently realised that there was a gap in my wardrobe where a black skirt was supposed to be. How did I not have a plain black skirt in my wardrobe?! The problem has now been resolved with this asymmetrical skirt by Zalora. I love how the longer length is balanced out with a front split (and did I mention it is under $20!). You will definitely be seeing a lot more of this one!


*UPDATE: I watched it. She killed it!

Just a quick update today as I have pretty much had the busiest weekend ever and my eyes are struggling to stay open as I type! Not only did I have to fit in my social engagements (priorities!), but I also spent all day Saturday and Sunday at the Polka Dot Vintage Markets selling my vintage collection.

This was an outfit from last weekend. I had a bit of a light bulb moment when getting ready after discarding yet another crop top and jean combo due to inappropriate belly exposure. Why not add a hint of lace to cover the gap? Genius, right?! So that’s exactly what I did!
Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! Off to bed for me.. see you soon Monday!

Wearing: ASOS Denim JeansH and M Denim Shirt (Similar here and here), Leather Jacket (Similar here), Betts bootsSaint Laurent Clutch.

Denim on denim has almost become a fashion lover’s style staple these days. Gone are the days where wearing double anything was considered a fashion faux pas, and I couldn’t be happier.
I love a good matching outfit (see the evidence here and here!) and matching denim with denim is no exception! 
These denim jeans from ASOS are a recent purchase and I have to say one of the most comfortable pairs of jeans I own. I could practically wear them every day. (Ok, so I kind of do!) I wore them with this H and M shirt that I picked up at a recent blogger garage sale for $2! The best two dollars I’ve ever spent, I reckon!

What do you think? Do you dare to double up your denim?
