Here’s one for all you daring fashion girls out there! A two piece floral suit is definitely a statement piece and isn’t for the faint hearted.
The key to pulling off the floral suit is balance, do not over do the look! For example if you were sporting a floral suit with yellow undertones don’t opt for a statement pair of fluro yellow shoes or a heavily embellished top. Instead subtly compliment the yellow under tones with something else yellow like a ring or necklace, such as the necklaces below. Necklaces such as these subtly accentuate the colour without making the outfit over-the-top.
Wearing a floral suit is all about confidence, without it you have no hope of pulling it off! Be bold ladies and embrace your inner fashion monster because without it we’d all be wearing potato sacks! Pair the suit with a pair of minimalist black heels and a shoulder bag of your choice, then accessorise to your hearts desire! After all, fashion should reflect who you are.
Anybody attempted the floral suit? Let me know your thoughts!
It’s winter here in Australia and my god is it cold! Although we don’t get snow where I am (yes laugh if you must as I have just complained about icy weather when we don’t even get snow) I am feeling the cold immensely! On extremely bitter days there’s nothing I feel like doing more than leaving the house in my holey trackies (or sweats for all you abroad folk!) This is where the fur jacket comes in to save the day; it’s chic, stylish and very very warm.
Fur coats have been around for centuries and I mean centuries! My Great Grandmother often tells me the stories of her floor-length mink coat which my Nunnu (great grandfather) bought for her whilst he was at war in Italy. She says ‘that coat was so beautiful, there was nothing quite like it. One day I got very drunk -she giggles- and got sick on the coat, Nunnu got so cross, but he took a bar of soap and scrubbed each soiled spot. That coat came out as good as new, that’s how you know what beautiful quality it was.’ Sadly when floor length coats went out of style, my Great Grandmother cut it in half!
Nothing says high fashion quite like a fur jacket. Worn by the biggest names in fashion the fur coat is an iconic fashion item. If you are against real fur, faux fur coats are no less brilliant! They often come in a wider variety of colours, styles and patterns as fake fur is much more versatile in regards to dying and styling.
For those of you out there who don’t have a fur coat I would recommend purchasing one at some point as they are incredibly warm and a reoccurring statement in the fashion world. A classy black fur jacket is perfect and out of all my fur I would probably say it’s the easiest to wear, this is because it doesn’t over power the outfit but still makes a statement as it’s fur. My second go to fur jacket would have to be white. White fur is classy yet chic and tends to go with a lot of things, the only problem with this is keeping it clean! The two above are my favourite fur jackets (they are fake of course!)
For those of you who hate fur (real or fake), here’s a piccy for you.. Made me giggle!
Let me know what you think about fur, be it faux or fake!
Today I came across a piece which I dibbed ‘The Harness.’ If you’re picturing the dreaded rock climbing harness (if you have ever gone rock climbing you feel my pain) or those ‘baby bjorn’ harnesses which tie your children to your front so you can continue everyday life… think again!
It could be my inner embellished obsessed monster shouting out but I think The Harness is the definition of fearless. The shag like feature surrounding the bodice softens the striking bronze platelet, giving the harness a slightly tribal feel. For those of you thinking ‘yeah alright it’s cool, but I wouldn’t have a clue how to wear it’ look no further!
All the harness (a disguised knight in shining armour) needs is your favourite black tee, a pair of jeans, a chunky pair of clogs, an over-sized rose gold watch, a pair of wooden sunglasses and you’re ready to fight!
If this is slightly over the top for you, check out some of these harnesses:

Today I tried to resurrect the old leopard print, was this a wise or utterly stupid decision? I attempted to bring it into no with a pair of Prada Baroque sunglasses and my latest obsession cut out boots.
Top: Over sized black top, Pants: Grey leopard print, Shoes: Cut out boots, Necklace: Chunky rose gold chain, Sunglasses: Prada Baroque
Should I not have attempted to resurrect leopard print? What do you like/don’t like about the outfit? Love it? Hate it? Let me know your thoughts!
