Rose Gold

I am still obsessing over rose gold! Rose gold has the versatility to match and compliment almost any outfit making it just that extra bit special. Like me, you probably think of jewellery as soon as anybody says rose gold but think again! I have searched the web and shops of the city to bring you an expanded repertoire of rose gold good enough to fuel any rose gold addicts out there!

Sneakers

Probably one of the last items that come to mind, rose gold sneakers are the definition of chic swag (yes, I just invented that)! Jeffery Campbell never ceases to amaze with his gorgeous platformed metallic rose gold sneakers (featured on the left).

Jacket

I know this is completely over-the-top and slightly attention seeking but I love it! However wearing this would be a challenge within itself! If this is a little daunting opt for a shorter less dramatic version like the jacket featured below.

Shorts

Out of my top three rose gold ‘expansion’ items these would have to be my favourite. I love how the shorts have a mind of their own yet are also a subtle use of rose gold in an outfit. A pair of rose gold shorts have the potential to even be less of a statement than a chunky, over-sized rose gold necklace.

And of course I couldn’t forget to include some of my all time favourite rose gold accessories. What kind of a rose gold groupie would forget that!?

The Harness

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:

Dressing for a concert: to rock or to roll is the question?

There’s something about being crushed in a mosh pit with fellow sweaty music lovers, boisterously bellowing the words to your favourite songs as the sound waves from the speakers pump through each and every cell of your body. Music withholds the magic ability to connect people.

So how do you dress for such a sacred event? It’s safe to say whether you’re up in the stands or down on the flat you’re going to want to dance (or in my case awkwardly attempt to move) so you’re outfit has to be practical yet chic as you’re up against a celebrity! Therefore I have put together a range of outfits to give you a little bit of inspiration when dressing for your next concert:

Rock Concert

Distressed denim, leather and rock ‘n’ roll are practically synonyms. You can never go wrong with a bold red lip, it screams rock and roll chic. For those superwomen out there that can dance incredibly in heels, try the first outfit!

Music Festival

From my experiences at music festivals it’s safe to say you will be getting hot.. very hot. Keep it light as the last thing you want is a clammy outfit when you’re smushed between shirtless sweaty guys all day. Don’t even attempt to wear heels as majority of your day will be spent moshing and stomping through grass. Opt for inclosed shoes or wellies as nobody wants bruised tootzies!

Pop Concert

Pop concerts are always difficult to dress as there is no real ‘dress code.’ When styling these pop concert outfits I sought inspiration from none other than the king of pop himself, Michael Jackson. I figured that there is no better place to go all out with gold, sequins or embellishment (inner embellishment obsessed monster making yet another appearance, sorry ladies!)

So the question is do I rock the classic ‘rock and roll’ look or do I roll with my own personal style? After much deliberation I decided to merge the two together bringing the rock ‘n’ roll look into the 21st century by adding glints of rose gold and a cheeky red lip. Because it’s freeeeeezing here in Australia I had to opt for a long sleeved black top rather than a sloganed tee just because I’m too much of a sissy to face the cold!

Cut Out Boots

I have been desperate to get myself a pair of black leather cut out boots after I spotted THE pair at Sportsgirl; but at one hundred bucks I wasn’t entirely convinced I needed them. After a great deal of searching to try and find a cheaper look alike on a weekend trip to Melbourne, I finally subdued to the Sportgirl babies and may I proudly say, NO REGRETS! I even took a shameless picture of my newest family members in the elevator. Image

Whilst searching every nook and cranny of Melbourne for the perfect look-a-like, I came across a number of cut out boot variations.

Gold Buckled:

As I’m a sucker for anything embellished or rose gold I couldn’t look past these. Although I love the gold studding, ‘horse stirrup’ like buckles and the subtle gold zip the detailing of the leather is what really captures my attention. However, I do feel that the toe cap is  unnecessary and ruins the line of the boot.

Chunky Heels -Jeffery Campbell:

Image

These valorous gothic boots would give me the dangerous false impression of being able to stomp over anything and anyone! Chunky heels take cut out boots from edgy, punk rock to straight out gothic.. and I love it! (The extra height isn’t that bad either for a gal seriously lacking in the height department)

Pointed:

Pointed shoes have never spoken to me no matter what form and this is no exception. Although personally I wouldn’t wear a pointed cut out, I can definitely imagine them on the feet of a chic ambassador sporting a crisp blazer with over the top pointed shoulder pads, killer kats eye sunglasses, wet looking leather shorts, an oversized clear clutch and a  vivaciously chunky necklace (tribal or embelished?).

I’ve been pairing my cut outs with the ever so trusty boyfriend jeans, but I am yet to expand my repertoire! I’m thinking in the summer months they would look incredibly cool with a tiny bohemian dress (completely clashing the edgy feel of the boots, but hey it’s the silly season after all!)

Let me know your thoughts on cut out boots this season: Completely impractical? (hello freezing tootzies) Cutting edge? Got yourself a pair?
