Another day another midi skirt… Obsessed much?!
I may have accidentally purchased this skirt in another colour. Oopsy.
In my defense though, the pink version was on sale and like I said before, I had been searching for the perfect full midi skirt for a while! If you are on to a good thing…
I generally wear a midi skirt with a cropped, fitted top but this time I styled it a little bit differently. (You know, to make it seem like a different skirt!)
 I kind of like the oversized, slouchy feel of this outfit. Although it is easy to look swamped when wearing baggy items together, I feel like by adding heels and slightly tucking the jumper in, it gives it less of a bulky look.
What do you think? How do you wear your midi skirt?

Reason number 3476 why I hate Winter: The Flu. 
A sore throat that never goes away, a nose that drips constantly, a sick child that coughs so much she vomits (all through the night!) Yep, Winter is officially flu season and it is very much alive in this household. I have been through a whole box of tissues today alone and my nose is still running.. Urghh! 

In an attempt to fight through the sickness haze and ‘look on the bright side’, I have had a think about some of the things I actually like about Winter. (I got stuck at three.) Coming in at the top of my rather dismal list though, is the coat. 
I try to stick to a classic style when it comes to coats, as there are only limited occasions to wear them through out the year (in this particular climate, anyway!) So, a coat that can last through multiple Winters is a must. I snapped this ASOS coat up on sale a few weeks ago and am quite happy about it! It’s great fit and perfect neutral colour means it will definitely be around to see me through the next few Winters, at least!  

Now if you’ll excuse me I must head out for some more tissues…

The Edit: The Birkenstock


I need help. Well, more specifically, I need your help. 
I am completely undecided on how I feel about the shoe of the moment, the Birkenstock.
On one hand I think they are hideous, I mean my Mum has been wearing them for years (no offence Mum!) and I certainly didn’t have an urge to rush out and buy a pair then. But, on the other hand, I see them styled with such perfection that it is hard not to go Birk crazy and get those babies on my feet in them ASAP. (Oh the power of the fashion industry!)
So, over to you, whats your opinion on the humble slide and more importantly, do I need a pair?!

Just in case it’s a unanimous yes, here are some of my top picks:

Matchy match style is taking over, and to say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. 

 I feel like I’m not alone here either… Matching sets and coordinated fashions are everywhere at the moment. It has even gone beyond simply matching your own outfit, having a twin or sister to match your outfit to, is even better!
Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?!) there is only one of me, and I have tried matching outfits with my two year old daughter but it’s not quite the same (not to mention the weird looks we get!) 

So I had to settle for matching my skirt to my top in this polka dot ensemble by Atmos and Here. Not a bad compromise, I suppose!

Now if only I had a twin..

What to Wear: Perth Cup

Day at the races

The biggest event of the Perth Racing Festival is coming up fast. For those of you stuck on what to wear to this year’s Perth Cup I have put together a what to wear guide.
You’re welcome!!
1. Bardot Peplum Dress – A simple dress that doesn’t show to much skin is a race day must.
2. Mimco Feather Veil – I am not a fan of the fascinator so when I saw Mimco’s feather veil it instantly captured my heart!  It is the perfect head piece for the anti-fascintator fashionista.
3. Turquoise Diva Necklace – A black and white dress calls for a colourful statement necklace. Bright Summer colours are a must and the bigger the better!
4. Kotur Pearce Clutch – A metallic hard case clutch with just enough room for the race day essentials. Lipstick, powder and a pencil (for filling in the betting cards!!)
5. Guiseppe Zanotti Wedges – A comfortable wedge shoe. No explanation necessary here but I will give a small hint: Grass everywhere.

This year’s Perth Fashion Festival is just around the corner. The excitement is building for the events 14th year with the official program launch earlier today.

This year PFF will be host to 36 fashion forward events. The festival will run from 19th September until the 25th September and this year includes four stand alone designer showcases, three WA designer capsule shows and a new free event Fashionably Loud combining music and fashion with designers such as Ellery, Story by Tang, Kitty Grace and Belle Bijoux showcasing some of their hottest items to the tunes of San Cisco.

Another new initiative this year is the VIP Closing Night event: Giving Back is the New Black. PFF is teaming up with Ready to Work ( a charity that supports disadvantaged women) for a showcase of WA designers take on the little black dress.

For more info and to see the complete program head to the Perth Fashion Festival’s website.

Student runway

 
   

 I was so excited to be asked along to the Student Runway show at PFF. I was really looking forward to seeing the creativity and talent of the student designers and the show certainly did not disappoint!

It started with a short collection from each of the three winners from last year (Alissia Gomez, Celene Bridge, Jeromy Lim) which was amazing and even featured a live snake draped over one of the models shoulders. (Brave girl!)

Next up where the entrants in the design categories. The students really let their imagination run free which resulted in some incredibly inspiring designs. It’s hard to believe that these designers are still students and it is so exciting to think what the future holds for these talented, aspiring designers.

 One of my favourite shows of the Perth Fashion Festival was Story by Tang. I pretty much loved everything about this collection. Keyhole backs teamed with structured cap sleeves, knotted ruching and the completely wearable black, nude and red colour palette all really appealed to me. And don’t even get me started on the hair and makeup. Amazing!
 Watching this collection made me want to own a piece, so I guess you could say it was a definite success.

Unfortunately I didn’t get any decent photos so all images seen here are courtesy of Simon Santi.
