Rockabilly Vintage

Hey guys,

This will be one of my last photo shoots towards this blog but wanted to show you what I’ve been working on.

I recently collaborated with Rockamummy as we’ve wanted to create something that combines our 2 loves for Vintage and Rockabilly.

She made this entire outfit herself and took into consideration my battle of the bulge 😂

Anyway I don’t have many words to write for this blog post but just want to say thanks to Jess and the team of people that helped me and supported me through this shoot.

We had so much fun! As you can probably tell 😂 

P.s I’m going to re-style these items and incorporate them into different outfits so stay tuned for that ❤️

Thanks all x

First Impressions, Last

Hello there,

How are we all? I was discussing with my little cousin the other day about first impressions and job interviews & how I remember this training course my high school sent me to.

It was about first impressions. Here is the scenario, now picture this:

 

I am a little 15 year old attending my course, catching the train into the big city. We attended this classroom with our school uniform and of course acting like the most immature little shits ever. LOL Anyway, one of the main lessons I learnt from this course, was the most important one of my life! & here it goes:

 

The first impression of yourself to someone else, is the most valuable one you can make. Choose wisely.

So as an experiment, he told us for tomorrow’s class , to not wear our school uniform but to wear conservative professional clothes. Watch how people react to you on the train. You wont be those little sh*** catching the train where everyone that works in the city shudders about, you will be treated rightfully.

So wow, did that work more than ever! I saw no adult roll their eyes or give me any smirks but I did see a lot of respect. He was right ! 

So my moral of this story: look at your outfit and yourself and think “what is my first impression? What does it say ?” 
Comment below and tell me what you think? Do you agree ?

Keeping the Class in Sexy

Hey all,

This post has been a long time coming and I decided to collaborate with Irish bra lady. Please note this is entirely my opinion and appreciate no negative comments.


I wanted to show what classy in sexy looks like. Now, most girls would’ve jumped the chance to show off their “puppies” if given this beautiful Lacey bralette I am wearing. Instead,I found a creative and classy way. I mean, I ain’t no A cup in the bra department but god damn I can still wear a bralette. But now I’ve added a lot more class to it. 

You know when my mum saw me pick this up (btw this was gifted and these words are 💯 % my own) from the post office she looked at me and thought “you are going to wear that?!” And then when she saw me style it up she commented on how classy and beautiful the top looked. I don’t know about you but the “too sexy and too much revealing phase” is done in my opinion. Time to bring back class with abit of sexy.

When things are sexy you don’t have to add more sexiness to it.you just need to add the class 🙂 






Hawkeye Vintage

Hello All,

As you all know, I love my Vintage goodies. The quality, the craftsmanship and the proud look of it gets me going. I often don’t buy “the new” as I find it better to save my money a bit more and score myself some vintage. Whether it be Vintage Chanel, Louis Vuitton, or even a vintage style of shirt, I am in! In Melbourne, we have a renowned Luxe Vintage Supplier named Hawkeye Vintage.

She is having an event dedicated this weekend on the 14th and 15th of July selling Chanel, Hermes & Louis Vuitton bags and jewellery!  This event will seriously be huge. Follow Hawkeye Vintage on Instagram   for details! In the mean time, images of the shoot will be up shortly: stay tuned!

 

Below is a pic with Yours Truly and I at the last event.  🙂 wpid-fb_img_1438203371255.jpg

(Hows that for an opening, no, yes?) 😀

I wanted to do something completely different in regards to this post.

As we all know, I am a typical Melbournian. I love my black. I wear it, I love it & suffice to say I breathe it. So I decided to do something different and grab this dress from my mothers wardrobe and style it up. I really wanted to see how versatile my style is. Wearing colour and styling this dress proves that.

I don’t know if it’s because of it’s classic pencil style, my mum has so many of these in her wardrobe with every colour and pattern you can think of.  (This is 1 of the Style Advice’s she has taught me).

 

I also decided to wear this dress with my fake fur jacket my mama gifted to me. Something I can wear forever and ever. I am so going to wear this jacket throughout Autumn – Winter and I am not even sorry for that 😉 lol

Thanks Mama!

Question to you guys reading this, has your mum given you style advice that has stuck with you? Comment below

 

Cheers  🙂

 

 

How to buy Vintage

Hello All,

 

So sorry for the lack of posting, I have been on holidays and just got back.. But when I was away, a  Vintage store Geelong Vintage Market was down the road from my hotel and since then was inspired to do a how to check list kinda post for you all: I purely love vintage as 99% of the time, the quality is much better. Whether it be jewls, bags, shoes or clothing.  They just don’t make it like they use to.

Now, if you checked my Instagram: Follow me I had a good few options which had made the decision hard than ever. I didn’t have much money on me which had made it harder.

Anyway thought i’d give you some tips on how I bought my goodies, these have helped me: (Note: these tips help generally when shopping, not just for vintage)

 

1) What’s your favourite Era of vintage? Check out the store first to get a good feel what they sell.   My favourite era is from the 1920’s to the 1950’s. .

2) Are you checking out something in particular? I.e bag, jewls, clothes etc – make sure you know what you want to buy as this will make your decision making alot easier.

3) Know what works for you.

4) The Hype of getting vintage can be overwhelming, so  I’d recommend getting somethng you can honestly wear over and over again. Try finding your own classic. Like for me, I am not a fan of the gold these days but somehow vintage gold looks so much better quality.

Now, the options at the Geelong Vintage market were endless and I could’ve been real bad and bought the whole store but lucky for me, I have self control  and was able to walk away with some good finds.

 

Hopefully everyone has had a beautiful start to 2017.

 

P.s This is 1 of the looks I’ve styled as of apart of the launch of my new Category named “My classics”.  This category is dedicated to Classic pieces in your wardrobe that every fashionista needs.. Anyway this is look 1, so stay tuned for the rest <3.
