Hello Hello! How was your weekend my lovelies? I hope you enjoyed sunshine on your face, friends at your side and delicious food on your plate. I had a gorgeous one too, involving vetting, catching up with friends, vintage treasure hunting and styling a photoshoot!
I have to tell you about a brand I discovered not long ago, Viktoria & Woods, a contemporary Australian label that creates functional and trans-seasonal wardrobe staples. Their pieces are perfect for the volatile Melbourne weather and are ideal companions for travelling. I utterly adore this Viktoria & Woods khaki skirt, made from Cupro (think man-made silk), it is velvety-soft and has a matte finish. It’s very versatile, goes with everything I own, and has pockets! Lurve pockets! And the best thing is that it is made in Australia! Go Aussie! Oi Oi Oi! :)
This vintage bag is a new favourite in my bag-drobe. Channelling a modern Scot, I adore the tartan print and the gold hardware. And it fits my iPad! I don’t own an iPhone so am trying my best to honour Steve Jobs by taking the iPad everywhere.
Outfit: vintage wool hat (similar one here), necklace, wool jumper (last seen here), sunnies, bracelets and bag (similar one here), Damsefly ring, Dimacci cuff (last seen here), Viktoria & Woods skirt, Miss Sixty heels
Regular readers of my blog will know that I love breaking fashion rules. Who says that blue and green should never be seen, who says that you can’t wear tops under strapless dresses, who says that a dress can’t also be a top, who says that you can’t mix prints or who says that you can’t wear pants with dresses? I won’t let a mens shirt deter me from feeling feminine or a brooch being super glued only to jacket lapels. Don’t let colours, styles and trends hold you back, embrace the possibilities, experiment, HAVE FUN! The best outfits are those with designer, high street and vintage elements that are infused with your personality. You just may surprise yourself next time you look in the mirror! And when you do, send your pictures my way!
