I’ve been a little remiss of late in my postings and it’s because (drumroll…..!) I’m in London! I’ve moved here to live for the next two years, so I’ll try to keep you updated :)
I’ve been busy shopping up a storm, drinking too much tea and visiting one too many galleries and museums (they’re almost always free here??! Winning!)
Anyway, here are are some of my happiest snaps and some of my recent purchases – i’ve been visiting Topshop a lot since I got here (you know you would do it too) – Oxford St Topshop is madness, but it is also amazing!!!
I’d be been after Flowerbomb from Viktor & Rolf for a while so I decided to spoil myself. I also got a lovely bronzed, rose gold pigment from MAC called Mythology – it’s gorgeous!!!! And the shoes and trousers are from Topshop.
And here are some touristy shots; Hampton Court Palace, The London Eye, Portobello Road Markets and me looking pretty happy about all of it!
Where do you like to go or to eat or to shop in London?
I’ve been a huge Topshop fan since the very first time I visited one in London in 2008. They always have cute and quirky patterns and cuts, very reminiscent of London fashion – which I love! But they also always have gorgeous dresses and skirts that are perfect for a night out.
Their beautiful, chunky coats and knits are always a winner in the winter-time as well! Can’t. Get. Enough. (more…)
Today I decided to do a post on another one of my favourite fashion inspirations: Olivia Palermo
Now, it’s no coincidence that this woman is always gracing the pages of fashion magazines and is consistently placed on best dressed lists everywhere – the girl has got serious style (not to mention killer hair – she was the pic I showed to my hairdresser when i got a chop recently – “Make me look like her!”)
Today I’ve decided to shoot one of my favourite Australian brands – Cameo the label.
They always have such beautiful collections – I have so many of their pieces in my wardrobe now! I got this top the other day (squealed with excitement when the delivery man approached!!), and styled it with my boyfriend jeans.
I felt like dressing it up a little (because..why not?!), so I wore it with heels!
I also think this top would look great with a pencil skirt for a night out, or with tailored black pants for a stylish work outfit.
Fresh, clean and chic are the words that come to my mind for this (seemingly never-ending – yay!!) trend.
I’m a big fan as it’s all about keeping things sleek and simple, not to mention that there are no rules when it comes to this look. It looks just as good worn feminine and pretty in skirts and lace, as it does in man style slouches and loose-fitted pieces.
I like that you can be loose in your interpretation of white as well – don’t be afraid of popping an off-white or cream number in there!
Here are some of my favourites of late!
The most dreamy of all the dreamy skirts
This look always looks great with a mix of textures (Ralph Lauren knows his stuff!)
A perfectly balanced mix of slouchy and polished
A white trench coat is definitely next on my list of things to buy!
Love the relaxed style of this outfit
I really could go on forever and ever with this – so what are some of your faves?
If you haven’t seen the photos of Miss Jenner’s voluptuous pout all over Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest – basically any online and/or social media network – then I’m not sure what you’ve been doing..!
Is it surgery? Is it not? Is it the ingenious use of make-up and optical Instagram-filter illusions?
My question when people mention this is not “How does she get them looking like that?” but “What colour is she using on her lips!?”
It’s hands-down gorgeous!!!!!! Not to mention the colour suits almost any look.
I have fallen quite in love with the neutral, chestnut, almost brown-y coloured hue that always graces her lips.
With some research (and some heavy Instagram stalking), I’ve discovered a lip liner that will achieve the same look, thanks to M.A.C – Whirl Lip Liner. (I’ve also been told a dupe for this – and a cheaper alternative – is this NYX Mauve liner.)
I bought myself one yesterday (for $30), and am extremely happy with it – not only is it a gorgeous colour, but it is also long lasting. And the colour is dark enough that you can draw a little outside the lines (without it being completely noticeable) to achieve a fuller pout a la Kylie.
Let me know if you guys have found anything similar!
