Class in Classics


Crop top:
Lace midi skirt: c/o AX Paris (here)
Crown pendant necklace: c/o Katie Mullally (here)
Platform shoes: Lipstik

What's more classically classy than a black and white colour scheme, red lipstick and a bit of lace? When I'm pressed for time for choosing a going-out outfit, I always naturally gravitate towards a classic black dress, and then red lips because in my opinion they have as much impact and wow factor as a stunning outfit.

I was also gifted this lovely crown pendant and chain by Katie Mullally, a jewellery designer all the way from the UK. It features 22.5 carat gold plated sterling silver and looks so regal and perfect up close! Check out Katie Mullally's designs for more quirky and vintage charms.

Sorry I had to take my photos indoors for this shoot- the past few weeks have had crazy weather; it's either been too unbearably hot or thunderstorms outside. So I thought I would test out the space besides my bed at my apartment with the natural light coming through from the right. Luckily the Canon 6D has amazing ISO and is a dream to work with indoors. What do you guys think of indoor shoots to showcase outfits?

Youthful Days

Striped crop top:
Satchel bag: Lulus
skirt: Nasty Gal
flats: c/o Le Bunny Bleu (in mint and pink)
Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

photos by myself

 This outfit makes me feel ultra young! There's something about a pleated flare skirt, straight hair and a cute pair of flats that takes a decade off my age. Satchel bags are definitely a flashback for me since I used to carry them around in school and uni, but their preppy shape and structure are too stylish to resist even for everyday street wear.

I can't express enough love for this Nasty Gal skirt I've had for about a year now! I think I got it on sale for only $30 and it's made of the softest and comfiest neoprene material, and in the cutest coral pink colour!

Le Bunny Bleu also kindly gifted me these adorable mint and white flat shoes. I've featured this lovely little brand before in the past on my blog, and they have the cutest range of quirky and vintage-inspired designs in really adorable colours and styles. The Aussie website isn't up yet (Instagram page is here), but you can check out the US website for Le Bunny Bleu here for their cute range.

And PS. Sydney-siders are in luck! Le Bunny Bleu actually have a small curated collection in the Sydney CBD, in a store called 'Drama' on 16 Goulburn Street in Chinatown. I'll be featuring another pair of flats I got from there in an upcoming blog post as well. Check out Drama if you'd like to check out Le Bunny Bleu shoes in real life. The store also has a range of other really cute and girly clothes (perfect for creating a complete outfit with the shoes :)) Other retailers will soon be stocking Le Bunny Bleu shoes in Sydney as well!

Using ghd Bird of Paradise Styler for Everyday Loose Waves Tutorial

Hi lovely readers! Today I'm showing an exciting new collab I have with ghd, who have recently released a limited edition Bird of Paradise collection! This one I've got is the 'Lagoon' styler, and as you can see it features a beautiful rich turquoise and shimmering green gradient, which was actually inspired by all the tropical trends on the runway. Also in their Bird of Paradise collection is their 'Sunset' styler, which is equally as stunning with vibrant purple and fuchsia tones! (Both are currently sold out on ghd website but you can find the Lagoon on RY here)

I thought I would also show a tutorial on how I get my everyday waves with the styler as well. I personally have been using the original ghd styler (IV styler here) since I saved up for it as a poor high school student in 2007 lol, and to this date I still think it was a great investment! For a hair styler I use almost every day for seven years, it was worth it, no? :)

The great thing about the ghd styler is that you can use it to both straighten and create waves, of which I'll be doing a tutorial for.

'Lagoon' styler: c/o ghd
Tropical bikini: c/o Jets Swimwear

The 'Lagoon' styler comes in a beautiful turquoise and green box with a tropical print that reminds me of a deep sea holiday...this funky tropical printed bikini by Jets that I wore last summer definitely seemed to complement it!

The box contains the ghd hair styler as well as a heat resistant mat, for you to leave your styler on after use. It has a handy ribbon around it which is useful for traveling!
