Minimalistic Silhouettes

As Melbourne starts to turn up the weather we can all turn to simpler, minimalistic silhouettes to avoid the heat.

I have been after a simple shift dress in black for quite some time now. My search started when I saw a girl walking down the street wearing a simple black shift dress, black boots and a “don’t care” attitude, I instantly wanted a dress like hers.

My search was finally over in early November when Landes Warehouse held their famous Warehouse Sale. Now if you have never been to Landes Warehouse, I urge you to go right now! Their stores are literally jam packed with bargains from brands such as Mink Pink, Somedays Lovin, Evil Twin and my personal favourite, Staple the Label.

After a (free!) hot chocolate and meeting the lovely sales assistants, I was ready to shop.
I am pretty sure I could have done 7+ rounds of the store and STILL find something that I hadn’t seen before! Once I had my hands full it was off the change rooms where the girls were unpacking even more stock!

I selected my top 4 and headed to the counter (I seriously could have chosen 10 more pieces but unfortunately my wardrobe is so beyond full!)
Everyone was so polite and I even got to see old friends (Hey Erin!)

Those 4 pieces are sure to become staple pieces over summer. So make sure you visit Landes Warehouse to pick up some unbelievable bargains for yourself or even Christmas presents.

P O S E

This dress is a perfect LBD for me, (and it was actually an H&M sale item!). Its long sleeves and deep v work together to create a sexy, yet low key vibe. Safe to say it’s now a wardrobe staple!  As usual, I’ve paired it with my leather jacket, a choker necklace (actually a ribbon) and Ray-Bans to toughen it up. Black suede mules and my Nakedvice Olivia bag add a touch of difference to the outfit. And a lace bralette peeks out to add texture.

I’ve also noticed that I rarely wear my jacket as an actual jacket, I just sling it over my shoulders! #Fashun

Contrasting Backgrounds

Usually, I shoot in front of a plain white wall, but this time Reannon and I explored Fitzroy/Collingwood to find different backgrounds to use.
It was fun to explore the different effects that the use of a contrasting background created (how cool is that purple wall!)

I chose a simple outfit of a slip dress and tee that I have been dying to wear for a while now, but the Melbourne weather has been way to temperamental and I absolutely hate that cold breeze that can pick up in the shade! I have also been loving my Gucci Princetown Slippers, they are the perfect shoe to class up a simple jeans and tee outfit. They also transport me back to my Malaysian holiday and how nervous I was to enter the Gucci store at Suria KLCC Shopping Mall in KL!

I was lucky enough to be contacted by the lovely Reannon, who is an amazing photographer, and she wanted to photograph me!

I also love how this dress has swishy, witchy vibe to it. Reminds me of Halloween!

Hey Mom!

I’ve finally found the perfect pair of Mom jeans! High rise – check! Straight Leg – check! Black – check!
Also new in my wardrobe is this L/S top, which I also purchased in black.

In other news, my hair is getting ridiculously thick. I feel like a new style is in order… maybe a fringe to shake it up?

In an attempt to utilise my summer wardrobe more and spend less, I decided to experiment with layering long sleeve tops under dresses. The result? this cute little outfit which I love!

DIY Frayed Denim

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.

2016-05-29 15.49.08

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!

2016-05-29 15.51.53-4

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!

ASOS Sale Steals

New Year New You, right? What better way to start this resolution than buying a new wardrobe! Hurrah! I’ve done the digging for you and picked the best sale items from the current ASOS sale. I may have put some of these in my shopping basket and a few are even on their way to me. Gotta’ keep those resolutions right?!

Note: all the items below are black/grey/white. Sorry, not sorry!

The Playsuit

PhototasticCollage-2016-01-02-17-34-49I am such a sucker for a playsuit/jumpsuit – whatever you call them, I love them.
The first grey one (here) is amazing, featuring a culotte bottom and cut out detail in the perfect grey colour. But its sold out in my size! :'( I just had to show you guys the amazing-ness of it.

The white and black one are the same style, but we all know you need one in every colour! I actually ordered the white one (how could you not at $16!!!) and I will be buying the black one at some stage.

I am really loving the lace up detail as of late. This one also has a beautiful flared sleeve that gives it a romantic feel, perfect for a night out. Pretty sure this will be going in my basket soon!

The Top

PhototasticCollage-2016-01-02-18-08-26

These 4 tops were too much of a bargain to resist… So I grabbed them all! Having a basic, but interesting top is a must for my wardrobe and each of these were between $17 to $23 in price.
Interested? Then click here, here, here…. and now here!

And more Tops….

PhototasticCollage-2016-01-02-18-13-22

If you can’t tell by now, I love a long line top and both of these grey, long sleeve tops (here and here) are in my saved items.
I love the 70’s twist on the flared sleeve kimono, a great way to shake up a basic throw over.

The Shoes

PhototasticCollage-2016-01-02-19-00-59

I am starting to see a trend in all the shoes I buy… a pointed toe, hence my love for the above three. Check them out here, here and here. I am really loving the third pair by Whistles, I feel like they may make their way into my shopping basket!

I would love to know what your favourite ASOS Sale Steals are, comment above!
