Steal her style: Olivia Palermo

Olivia Palermo double denim style

The always on point Olivia Palermo is the ultimate style crush. She nails it every time and has casual chic down to an art. Even more impressive is her ability to rock the double denim so effortlessly!! (Exhibit A, above.) This look is so simple yet so perfect and has me wishing thinking, why can’t I look that cool?!
Well, in an effort to enable us all to ooze the O.P. cool, I have searched high and low to find the perfect pieces to recreate this look.
Thank me later.. when you are looking super chic in your new denim on denim ensemble, that is!

Basic Black Shoes

 

 
I recently realised there was a gap in my wardrobe where basic black shoes should be. In fact my whole shoe-drobe needed a bit of an overhaul. I had got to a point where getting dressed all came down to the (lack of) shoes, causing the whole getting ready process to be a lot longer* than necessary.

Enter the three new editions to my wardrobe. The basic slide, the block heel mule and the high heeled slingback. All in black, naturally! With these three additions I feel like I have every occasion covered. Basic black shoes are a wardrobe staple and while I love a good statement shoe, I have finally realised that building a wardrobe around basics is essential. (Wow, how mature of me!!)

Hope everyone is enjoying the start of a new week, I am busy working on lots of exciting things for the blog this week with another beauty review and a new style segment!
 
Happy Monday!

 

 

 

* I am officially blaming my lack of suitable shoes for my constant lateness, although this is not a guarantee it will change!

Beauty Review: Napoleon DéVine Goddess Lipstick

Napoleon DéVine Goddess in Hara


Today we are taking a break from all the TPFF action with something a little bit different, our first ever beauty review! I am so excited to finally launch the beauty section on the blog as it is something I have wanted to do for a while! You can expect to see beauty reviews, make up how to’s, plus a few tips and tricks from experts. 
I would love to hear your feedback too, if there is anything you want to see more of on the blog (beauty related or not!) be sure to let me know.

Today I am reviewing the Napoleon Perdis DéVine Goddess lipstick in the colour, Hara. 
I am totally in love with the orange toned colour. I like a bold lip but red tones don’t really suit me, so if I am going for a vivid lip, I prefer a orangey-red colour.
The lipstick goes on silky smooth and keeps your lips feeling moisturised. It doesn’t dry out your lips at all and the rich pigment means the colour stays put (even after food!). 
This is the first time I have used a Napoleon lipstick and am quite impressed. With over 20 colours to choose from, it’s safe to say I will be using it again! 


Have you tried the Napoleon DéVine Goddess lipstick before? What did you think?

TPFF: Street Style

What everyone is wearing to the shows is just about as important as what the designer is sending down the runway.

Street style at fashion week(s) around the world have inspired many an outfit. 
Let’s be honest here, what everyone is wearing to the shows is just about as important as what the designer is sending down the runway (if not more!)

One of my fool proof ways to cure a bout of outfit block is to type those two magic words into Google. (Actually, it’s pretty much the way I solve all of life’s problems!!) I did a bit of style stalking at Fashion Central over the TPFF weekend to hopefully help you next time the disease strikes (it’s a serious issue!) There was plenty to see, with Perth fashionistas turning up the style factor. Bright colours, crop tops, monochrome and designer bags aplenty!!

Every year one of my favourite shows at the Telstra Perth Fashion Festival (TPFF) is the student runway. Fashion design students get creative to showcase their best designs across six categories. It is always so refreshing to see the imaginations of the next generation of local fashion designers come alive.
My personal favourite(s) from the night were the two dreamy creations by Polytechnic West student, Charissa Schlink, which is actually no surprise because I have been a fan of her fun fashion label, Birds On A Wire for a while!

Congratulations to all the winners and I can’t wait to follow your fashion journey!
