Feathers are not just for the races or carnivale

October 21, 2009

I am loving feather headbands at the moment. Don’t just leave them for the races, they are a great way to add a little bit of chic to an everyday outfit. My picks are the peacock eye headband from general pants $39.95 or this Amazon Feather Headband from Sportsgirl a bargain at $19.95

Florals are going to be big this summer!

September 3, 2009

Florals are going to be big this summer. Think cute liberty print tea dresses toughened up with glads. This Sportsgirl bralet would look great over a white tee and denim shorts…. Diane Kruger eat your heart out!

My Style Mantra

August 20, 2009

I love Kate Bosworth’s style. I was reading Vogue UK September 2009 and they described Kate as “[having] a knack for being up-to-the minute but never edgy, well turned out but not immaculately polished”. That is exactly how I would like to be perceived – this is my new style mantra.

Double take…

August 15, 2009

Double take, i spotted the same brown Chloe-esque  wedge at Sportsgirl and Witchery?!?

The Ruby Burnished Wedge at Witchery retails for $169.95 or at Sportsgirl you can grab a pair for $139.95… They are perfect with some skinny jeans a baggy top and maybe a scarf to top it all off! I spotted Bossie (aka Kate Bosworth – my style crush),   on the pages of a glossy mag sporting a very similar pair just the other day. So head down to the shops now to snag yourself a pair, they are sure to see you through to the end of winter and all they way through summer!

Love the new and improved bigger Kagui store in the basement of Galleries Victoria in the city. It’s every budget babes shoe heaven with nothing over $100!

I wish I was around in the 70’s

August 10, 2009

Was my past life spent in the 70’s? I love everything about the era especially the clothes! This maxi dress from the new spring/summer bittersweet collection from Zimmerman definitely has a 70’s vibe.

I can imagine myself poolside, in a fabulous Villa in Ibizia with my imaginary besty Jade Jagger. If you can’t make it to Ibiza then Bondi will just have to do…. Pile on tones of bangles, some stacked wedges – top off with salty sun kissed hair. Summer here i come, can’t wait!

Spotted… Portmans new ad campaign

August 6, 2009
Portmans s/s 09-10 campaign

Portmans s/s 09-10 campaign

I am going to be frank with you; I haven’t been in to a Portmans in forever. The past couple of years I have been a devoted ‘Sportsgirl’, however I recently spotted the new Portmans ad campaign…. and my god, I can’t wait to get in to store to check out the new s/s collection. Floral tank – YES PLEASE! Cute high waisted skirt, naturally, pile on the bangles and a great necklace and throw in the huge hair for good measure. Love it, want it NOW!

Please note that I am still a dedicated Sportsgirl shopper, and this in no way affects my weekly pilgrimage to my shoestring shopping Mecca – Sportsgirl.
