(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  🙂

 

 

Beauty & The Beast with BYS Comestics

“It’s not till you lose everything, that you can truly appreciate everything.” Belle from The Beauty and The Beast.

 

I got #invited to watch a movie the other day, thanks to BYS Cosmetics  and the girls at Bloggers United AU to watch Advanced Screenings of Beauty and the Beast. This movie has been a favorite of mine from when I was little girl. Why? Well I thought I was Belle. (SAD I KNOW, LOL) as I use to read a lot as a little girl and somehow I was her LOL.

 

30 years later, here we are. Without going into too much detail, the movie was a 10 out of 10 for me. The graphics & the work they did with the costumes (Oh the costumes!). Such a fab night with heaps of popcorn that I finished before the movie even started (am I the only one that does this?) and of course the girls night! I love having girls night in but this night was epic.   A night to remember, I must say.  Apart from the movie, we did get gifted a massive bag (god it was a challenge taking it on the train ride home, I’ll tell you that) of makeup and brushes from the lovelies at BYS Cosmetics

Simply Styled in Print

 

 

Hi guys,

If any of you know me, I love interacting with different nationalities, religions and of course different aspects of life. It’s nothing more enjoyable for me as I find it mentally stimulating.

Now collaborating is no different. Meeting new bloggers in the industry is such a thrill for me. It’s great to know what makes them start a blog. Why they’re doing it etc, what makes them tick and what inspires them and etc.

So when Edwina came down to Melbourne and we decided to do an impromptu shoot by using Melbourne’s Lane ways.

 

Check out the look below:

 

Her instagram link is here for you to check out 🙂 Enjoy! Style Decoy  (I also got the chance to take an outfit of the day for Edwina. Have a look at my photography) 

 

This look is for a Simple Saturday and a nice look for a hot steamy Melbourne night. #summervibes 🙂

 

Take care all

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 🙂

 

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.

How to : Pearl Choker

Hey all,

 

If you noticed I posted on Insta the other weekend ( check Chicgeek85 / OOTN ) I had did a look for my cousin’s pre wedding party. I wore a simple blush skirt with off the shoulder top and my vintage pearl necklaces with my Chanel brooch.So many people complimented on my necklace but in fact, they were 2 pearl necklaces and a brooch.  It’s super easy and here we go:

** Please note, I’ve used my wrist as an example of a neck*

 

 

Step 1: I grabbed 2 necklaces (1 vintage and 1 fake) pearl necklaces in order to gain a layers effect.

Step 2:  Wrap around your neck until comfortable.

Step 3: Grab your brooch and clip it over your necklace like so.

Step 4: And voile!

Note: I’d wear this with something open neck like off the shoulder top that  I got from Boohoo a while ago, just so I could show it off. Something timeless, chic, classic and elegant but still on trend. (Just refer to my outfit as mentioned earlier)

 

 

Hope everyone had a beautiful new years and I look forward to working with you all in 2017.

Thank you so much for your support. 🙂

 

Take care xx

 

The Peach Box: Collab

Hey all,

 

Jewls;  a classic, timeless way to update, dress up, elevate and make an outfit look extra elegant in simple ways. Being the European that I am ( Albanian / Turkish background ) , jewls have been in our culture for a long time. So long that, if you were newlyweds the bride was given ropes of gold ..

Being the modern stylish woman that I am, I am not a real fan of so much gold as what they gave to the brides but more into pearls,  silver, rose gold, diamonds and last but not least costume jewelry.

 

Ok, we all should know that we don’t need to spend alot of money to have some decent jewelry or make a beautiful timeless outfit, which is why it was a great opportunity to work with The Peach box.

I picked these 2 items as I find they have a timeless and elegant feature that we all know I love.

 

 

On another note, just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas x

 

 

This post was in collaboration with The Peach Box. These items were gifted to me but have no influence on me whatsoever.

 

Xx

Happy Socks

I am the type of person that has NEVER EVER won a competition. EVER EVER.. The only competition I’ve ever worn was getting my free coffee from my coffee card . But when I suscribed to Cocktail Revolution  website, I didn’t expect to win a competition for a pack of Happy Socks and Jocks.

 

I decided to do a shoot with a pair of heels and some socks. Something a bit different to add to your outfit. I was wearing this with a simple LBD.

 

You should probably know by now, I am all about that unique style

 

Please note: these were one of the pair, that I won in a competition.

 

 

Take care all
