Been a while, huh? Hi! I bought a new outfit last week and I love it so much I was driven to dust off the old blog login and see if it still worked (spoiler alert: it does), and here we are!
I’ve been wearing basically nothing but black pants and top at work and I desperately needed to mix things up a bit, and since animal print is literally EVERYWHERE right now, and it’s a print I’ve always loved (even if I secretly wonder if it makes me look like an 80 year old divorcee. I also STILL regret not buying a fantastic Banana Republic leopard print trench coat at the Hawaii outlets five years ago), so I’ve been wanting to invest in a classic piece for my winter wardrobe. I saw this dress recently and had to try it on. Lucky for me it was during one of Myer’s many Super Weekends and it was 25% off the full price.
Paired with my black ankle boots from last year, this is a look that doesn’t need much added to it. I love the shirtdress style, because it makes the midi length fitted through the waist and not so dowdy on my figure. I just needed a black leather jacket to complete the look, and again, luckily for me I looked for one during last week’s Click Frenzy internet madness. Ezibuy had $50 off a spend of over $200, so I thanked the Gods for Afterpay, added this number to my cart and proceeded straight to the checkout. The black ankle boots I already have, but you could buy literally any pair and it would look fine.
For some weird reason I’m always drawn to jackets without collars, something I didn’t realise until I got this one and tried it on. But I quite like the look – the sharp lapels make up for the lack of collar, and it’s fitted without feeling tight. It also sits at the perfect spot on my ridiculously long torso.
I also think this dress would look fab with a really nice pair of black closed toe heels if you wanted a more classic look. It’s definitely a very versatile dress. Yay!
Leopard print and black leather. Is there a more perfect combo? Nope.
I started a new job in January this year, and after a year of being at home in maternity leave and existing mostly in tracksuit pants or jeans and jumpers, my work wardrobe was in need of quite the freshening up. Armed with some birthday and Christmas vouchers, I hit up my local Westfield to… Continue reading ->
You guys. I have a new obsession and it’s pretty obvious what it is. Bomber jackets. I’ll be honest, it took me a while to come around to them, but suddenly they are literally EVERYWHERE and I can’t get enough of them. I bought an olive green one a while ago and now I’ve got… Continue reading ->
I’ve been trying to update my wardrobe a little bit lately. I think it’s because we’ve reached that point in Winter where it feels like it’s never going to end, I’m going to be stuck inside forever, and I’m never going to wear anything except fleecy hoodies and tracksuit pants for the rest of my… Continue reading ->
Having a baby is a weird thing. I mean, it’s amazing and exhausting because you know, you get a baby at the end of the forty odd weeks, but it does a weird thing to a person’s sense of style. Pre-baby you’re confident (mostly) about what you like to wear and what you’re comfortable in… Continue reading ->
Resurfacing after an unscheduled blogging break to bring you the Emmy Award Fashion hits and misses! We’ve had a tough month of sickness in our house, and though I wasn’t sick as my husband and daughter, I feel very run down and exhausted. So this year’s Emmys red carpet was a welcome breath of fresh… Continue reading ->
First of all, I will not apologise for the title pun. I’ve realised in the last year or so that whenever I stock up on earrings, usually at Lovisa’s three for two sales, that I tend to exclusively buy stud earrings, always in silver. I do own dangly earrings and a few pairs of hoops… Continue reading ->
Country Road always do great Winter dresses, with great long sleeves (imperative for Winter – short sleeved dresses in Winter ranges drive me bonkers. IT’S COLD. I WANT TO COVER MY ARMS.) Last year there were a couple I saw that I didn’t buy, including a gorgeous black and white one, and I was kicking… Continue reading ->
My best friend had her hen’s night over the weekend, and I was super excited to get dressed up and kick up my heels. I might have been so excited that I ordered a total of four dresses from Asos and The Iconic to try on, but they all got returned (free returns, what can… Continue reading ->
