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!

10 Black Bags Under $100

 Just because it is a wardrobe necessity, the basic black bag doesn’t need to be boring right? It’s all in the details. Gold hardware, embossed detail and a variety of different straps all add an interesting element to an everyday staple. Personally, I love a padlock detail and in terms of size, the bigger the better. (I just have so much ‘stuff’!!)

I have put together my ten favourite black bags under $100 for your shopping pleasure. My little Friday treat for you!

If you haven’t heard of online fashion store Hello Parry yet, then where have you been?! The Perth based store stocks the coolest range of fashion forward, street style inspired, on trend pieces and is loved by fashionistas everywhere! 
I recently picked up a few items from their new Spring range and loved them both so much I wore them together. I love the colour combination of nude and white for Spring. It looks so fresh and stylish and is a great way to test the waters of the current white-on-white trend if you are too scared to wear an all white outfit. (Yep, my hand is up!)

As part of this year’s Telstra Perth Fashion Festival Hello Parry will be showcasing the latest Spring collection in their first ever runway show. Is it wrong that this is the show I am most excited about?! 
If you are in Perth then head down to Fashion Central at 2:30pm for the show. Did I mention it was FREE!

For all the details head here. Hope to see you there!

Westfield Shopping Centres are on the hunt this season… 
 
On Saturday a group of lovely local bloggers and I gathered at Whitford City Shopping Centre to hunt down our #mosthunted pieces for SS14.  
Armed with a $200 gift card and a time limit of 45 mins we were let loose in the Whitford City Shopping Centre. Now I like to consider myself a bit of a professional shopper so this challenge sounded like a piece of cake, but I have to admit it was difficult! I was running from store to store and found so many new season styles I loved that narrowing it down to create one outfit had me feeling a tad flustered!!

In the end I settled on this monochrome look, a black bustier layered over a white shirt, combining two of my #mosthunted pieces. (I told you I had trouble choosing!) 
After the hard work(!!) was done we were treated to makeup touch ups, hair styling and cupcakes (an essential photoshoot item) to prepare for our photo shoot. 
If you want to check out all the looks from the day they will be on display at Whitford City very soon! 

Thanks so much to Mikey and the team at Whitfords for such a fun afternoon!!

Westfield Whitford City will be hosting Fashion Saturday this weekend so be sure to head in and join the hunt (and the fun!)

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?

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!!)
