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

Enjoy 🙂

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 ?

Food and Life baby

Ok, Ok.. I actually said it first on Instagram (See here if you’re not following me!) and the comments blew up, so I decided to make it official and put it on the blog. Ok, Ok. My approach style is not very orthodox but I said it. what’s the big deal? Well my friends, the fashion industry has made it a big deal in order for you to feel bad about yourself.

Now, I am like most people. I love my food, wine, coffee (full cream milk thank you), chocolate and carbs. OH CARBS. Now that doesn’t make me fat does it? Does it make this outfit less classy? No. Less Elegant? No.

Now, lucky for me being so stubborn headed and strong, I don’t really care what people think and see of me. But on the flipside, some girls do and it hurts their feelings to think someone thinks their pregnant. (don’t get me started!) Anyway, a personal favourite of mine are peplum tops. I do not know where id be without them. They’re cute, they go great with a skirt, pants, leggings, jeans and the list goes on. They cover the tummy and add accentuate my curves to show my flat stomach. (yeh right! I had a big bowl of pasta right before the shoot and I don’t care) LOL

Take care x

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  🙂

 

 

img_20170226_124625_753In case you didnt know and not follow me on  Instagram  (please go ahead and do so if you havent), I had my ultimate look drawn.

 

Eyeslikefingers drew me and I am such in shock as I had asked if she could (as if you don’t ask you never know) and she said yes, which was amazing enough but then the art piece was amazing. I don’t know how she did it. But am so thank ful 🙂
