3. Fab Five Fashion Finds Under $50

It’s that time of the week again! My weekly roundup of the best fashion under $50 is here.

Have you noticed my posts have taken on a bit of a Spring feel lately? Well, that’s because Winter is dead to me. Dead, I tell you! I can finally see the light at the end of the gloomy tunnel (even though thunderstorms are forecast today.. urghh!)

Today’s fab five is all about fun colours and textures as we say a big F… you to Winter. Three days to go!

Happy Friday and happy shopping!!

Zara Store Opening Perth

You can practically hear the excitement buzzing around Perth. 
The epic fashion retailer, Zarahas finally hit our side of the world! The first Zara in Perth opened yesterday at Garden City Shopping Centre. The two-level space not only houses a host of fashion forward women’s clothing and accessories but includes a Men’s and Children’s section too!* 

I didn’t make it to the opening yesterday (damn work, ruining my fun!) but I headed there bright and early this morning. By the time I arrived (9:05am!) the store was already packed and by the time I got to the change rooms there was a line of about 20 people! Clearly the people of Perth have been waiting a while for Zara to come our way.
I was definitely impressed with what Zara has to offer and I could have purchased a lot more than I did. With price points mostly around the $49.95-$69.95 mark it was very hard to resist! Luckily for my credit card a few of the items I wanted were sold out in my size already. 
So, welcome to Perth Zara, and from now on you can expect to see a lot more Zara in my (and everyone else in Perth’s) wardrobe! 

Have you had a chance to get to the store yet? What did you think? 

*(But ummm sorry to my daughter and husband because I did not even look in that area, next time I promise!!)

The best part being that they are all under $50!!
You can just think of me as your helpful, shopping, fairy godmother. (Too far?!)

The Edit: Top 10 Festival Must Haves


The ultimate festival guide is here!! 

With Splendour in The Grass on this weekend and the Northern Hemisphere smack bang in the middle of their Summer festival season, I thought I would put together a list of my top 10 music festival essentials.

Even though none of these apply to me, (I am stuck on the west coast of Australia!) I actually had a lot of fun compiling this list and it made me even more excited for the upcoming Summer festivals.. you know in a few months time. (Hurry up Summer!)

So here it is. My top 10 festival must haves:

1. The denim short – pretty much a festival staple! Comfy, casual and easy to sit down in!
2. A comfy pair of shoes – You will be on grass and you will be dancing.. all day. Need I say more.
3. A jacket – Even though the sun may be shining during the day (if you are lucky), the temperature will definitely be cooler in the evening.. and the evening sets are always the best so you don’t want to be shivering in a corner somewhere, too cold to enjoy them!
Shop Shorts, Jackets and Shoes Here: 



4. Sunglasses – Protect your eyes from the sun and look like a rock star while doing it!!
5. Hat – Yep, another sun protection/style essential item. (I love a good double duty item!) 
6. Day bag – Make sure it is big enough for all your essentials but still easy to carry. A cross body satchel or back pack is ideal.
7. Arm Candy – Complete the festival look with loads of bling.

Shop Sunnies, Bags and Hats Here: 



8. Sunscreen – This one is practical and very, very necessary. Even if it looks like it will be cloudy/rain, sunscreen is still a definite must.
9. Foundation- A light easy to wear foundation such as a tinted moisturiser is preferable.
10. Lip Balm – There is nothing worse than dry, cracked lips, especially after a whole day of screaming singing along to your favourite tunes!

So there you have it. Hopefully I have helped you all get festival ready!

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:

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.
