Anyone who knows me knows that I love marble! It’s the background wallpaper on my phone, my laptop and iPad, so when HOMA the label contacted me asking if I would like one of their beautiful marble creations, I jumped at the chance!
HOMA the label is a small, Melbourne based business run by Cassandra and her team. They create beautiful marble inspired accessories, which are unique in their patterned design, so each one is as individual as you! Their current design, the mrbl necklace, features a lovely marble tube on a delicate silver chain. These beautiful creations are the perfect gift for friends and family.
In fact, HOMA has been lovely enough to let me share this little discount code with you all! Just enter IRONICMINIMALIST15 in the checkout to score 15% off one of these unique marble creations.
You can also follow Homa on insta and facebook to get your marble fix

I’ve recently noticed a lot of velvet items appearing on my insta, being worn by bloggers and on the street.
While it may be more of a winter fabric, it can definitely be worked into summer, a floral dress teamed with a velvet boot/bag or a velvet cami dress worn over a white tee.
It’s also the perfect fabric for the changing Melbourne weather!

I was lucky enough to be contacted by the lovely Reannon, who is an amazing photographer, and she wanted to photograph me!
Below are the results of her talent, be sure to follow her on insta to see more of this brilliant lady
I also love how this dress has swishy, witchy vibe to it. Reminds me of Halloween!

I am totally OBSESSING over these on trend blush shades at the moment.
Which is very unlike me as I am strictly a black, white and grey girl, but I guess there is nothing wrong with stepping out of my comfort zone once in a while…

I recently fell in love with the frayed denim trend that has been featured heavily in street style pictures and on fashion blogs.
I found a few pairs online for $100+, and while that is not mega expensive for a pair of jeans, I felt that I could DIY a pair of jeans myself.
So I chose a pair of Men’s Regular Fit Jeans for a slightly baggier fit, cut them to the length that I wanted and ta-da! Frayed jeans for less than $20!
I also plan to give them a wash to loosen up the threads for more of a frayed look and sew a few cm’s above the fray to stop it unravelling too much!

New York Fashion Week…. 4 little words that can quicken the pulse, make a fashionista’s heart beat pitter patter and drain the wallet.
Take a look at my pick of this year’s Street Style. Overall, I feel that the stylings were more casual than the years before, think slip dresses, elongated/flared sleeves, toned down colours, and sneakers.
What are your thoughts?
Love this pinstripe suit
Neutrals with Sneakers, a tick in my book!
Zanita <3 (who I once meet!)
The addition of the choker necklace really adds some interest to the outfit
Flare upon flare
Ummm… Where can I buy this top?! It’s a need!
The fray life
Can do no wrong!
I love the addition of the sporty shoe, adds some interest to the outfit
“Go Zhang Your Self”
All white is all right
Loving the tie detail on the slip dress
This clutch would make me hungry all the time
Pj’s for Fashion Week? Yes Please!
On trend detail
“I’ll take one of this outfit to go please!”
That ring detail
Tuesdays are the new Sundays – laze in bed until noon, eat a late breakfast (all day breakfast anyone?) and then back to bed wishing the day could last forever.

I am really lovin’ a few trends that are floating around the fashion scene as of late.
Lace up Detail
I am currently on the search for a shirt (or a jumper for winter) with this amazing lace up detail.
It adds interest to any outfit and I can see it becoming a staple in my wardrobe-that’s what I tell myself anyway!
I have loved this trend for a long time now, but I have never found the perfect frayed denim… until I found these and what do you know! they are sold out! ugh.
So the search continues, I may even have to go DIY!
This trend was a hit during the recent fashion weeks. Similar to an Ellery flare, but wider and more elongated.
Kinda like wearing your boyfriends shirt!
This is a trend I am keen to try out.. one day when I am game!
I love that a wider silk tie, a bandanna or a leather string can be used in similar way, but giving a totally different look each time
Off the Shoulder
A perfect trend for summer, even better if its part of an all white ensemble.
Sara of Harper & Harley demonstrates the look perfectly here.
If you knew me well, you would know that I am ADDICTED to culottes. I have several pairs on rotation.
So it seems a bit of a no brainer to try their slimmer cousin. If they are as easy as culottes then sign me up!
I love to try out new trends, but I always try to keep my wardrobe simple and full of things that I would wear on a regular basis rather than a one off wear item. Otherwise I find that I end up with a full wardrobe of crap that I don’t wear and an empty wallet!
