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

 
 




Girls night in Winter

Hiya,

Thanks for tuning in. Have been so busy with my new place (my first home, EEEKKK!) I can’t wait to show you all, photos of how I’ve styled it.

In the mean time, thought I’d smash out some outfits. Decided to do something a bit more of a going outfit but still chic, elegant, classy but FUN.  More for drinks with the girls, out for dinner or something in the night time. It’s winter here in Australia and I am struggling to dress for going out whilst not looking frumpy.

This is my personal style. This is what I find works for me. I don’t ever have the intention of looking like someone else just because everyone else is dressing like them.

I don’t ever follow trends that don’t work for me. If I liked a trend, i’d make it work for me.  in this case for this outfit, it was the off the shoulder top and bodycon midi skirt.

This has been my philosophy since day 1 of this blog and it will still be the same when I re-brand and beyond.

Have you found any newest trends that you can work into your wardrobe and some you wouldn’t dare try? Would love to hear from you! This question goes out the boys too!

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
