VOGUE SHOPPING NIGHT

Vogue online shopping night is upon us! The one night (well, the best night) where we can practice all those skills that midnight shopping has taught us. And we can actually PURCHASE those full shopping carts, and not abandon them due to *empty wallet syndrome*

Here are my pick for Vogue shopping night which officially started at 12 pm. Ready, Set, GO!

* The Daily Edited – it’s time to join the monogrammed clutch/bag trend with 20% off their online store

* Alias Mae – A Melbourne label with a cult following from creating high-quality leather footwear. 25% off all styles online

* Neuw Denim – time to top up those black skinny jeans that have faded from last winter. Maybe even grab a new jacket? Neuw have 25% off their online store

* Tony Bianco – everyone knows the way to a person’s heart is via SHOES! 20% off storewide

* Camilla and Marc – their VAMFF runway collection is still echoing in my head, so now’s the time to snap up the perfect shirt. 20% online and in boutiques

* IN BED – Since you will be doing most of your shopping in bed, its seems only suitable to order new bed linen for further in bed browsing. 20% off all IN BED branded products online

* SIR the label – beautifully created garments featuring minimal silhouettes and luxurious fabrics. One of my favourite labels. 20% off online

* Holly Ryan – Who doesn’t know about these beautiful, timeless jewellery creations? 25% off online

* The Undone – although not on the retailer’s list, this online store curated by Sara of Harper & Harley has everything the blogger could need! 20% off sitewide with code FLASH20

Trends: Velvet

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!

The Extreme Layerers see layering as a challenge, not a chore. Underwear over outerwear, jackets over shirts, over dresses – could they BE wearing any more clothes?? With a capacity to wear more outfits at once than anyone else, they casually top off their unique style with a jacket until it’s time to unwrap again.

Boohoo.com recently challenged me to partake in their version of the Olympics, their challenge? Create an ‘Extreme Layered’ look fit to win a Gold Medal but with a budget of £50 ($84 AUD)

So arming myself with the knowledge of a Blogger in the unpredictable weather of Melbourne (sunshine one minute, hail the next!) and taking inspiration from Style Icons and the Fashion Gods (Christine Centenera), I begun.

Finding the perfect combination of the right layers was a challenge in itself! Boohoo.com has an extensive online store and I wanted to add everything to my look! But I stayed true to my style and chose a simple shirt dress ($36) that could be worn over a pair of cropped flared pants ($14), a mesh top ($20) to be worn under the dress and a longline waistcoat ($28). While it may look like a fairly simple outfit, the details make it a standout. Pushing up the sleeves on the dress to expose the mesh top underneath adds a touch of attitude, while also unbuttoning the dress to the top of the pants to complement the flared look. Throwing on the longline waistcoat adds that extra layer and adding a pair of tall black heeled boots finishes the look (sadly my budget didn’t stretch that far, but they can be a purchase for next time).

While technically my look came in over $84, I took advantage of boohoo.com’s current 40% off dresses & tops deal! this brings the total of my look down to $79. Missed out on that deal? Don’t worry! Boohoo.com frequently has great deals for your all your fashion needs!

Also, I just found the perfect bomber jacket over at boohoo.com!

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…

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!

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!

Shoe Wants

I’ve recently started to have that feeling.. that feeling of wanting needing new shoes!

These are the lucky few that have made it to the list:

Senso Ivan I
Senso Ivan I

I NEED these shoes. Pointed toe, check. Midi heel, check. Mule style, check! These have been on my wishlist for a while, unfortunately I got bills to pay! and now they have sold out in my size.
However… Zomp sell the same style but with a chain across the toe, which I also like. So these may be in my hands soon!

Nike Air Force 1 07
Nike Air Force 1 07

I’ve been loving the white sneaker trend recently (although I am a bit behind on the bandwagon). I have narrowed down the list to the Nike Air Force 1 07. I feel I can pair these with basically everything in my wardrobe. The only question is ” can I keep them clean?”

Birkenstock Black Arizona

The Birkenstock was a staple style last year and is tipped to be a winner this year too. Its the perfect shoe for the minimalist trend, goes with everything and is comfortable.

It was love at first sight with these shoes, Tony always gets it right! I can picture these teamed with a midi skirt, tee and leather jacket for a casual look, perfect for this ever changing Melbourne weather.
