Hello Hello!

So glad to share another outfit post with you all, especially an outfit that includes my love of vintage clothing.
I know I haven’t been as frequent with my posts for the past 2 months but for me, it was a much-needed break. It’s that time of the year when everything falls quickly and so heavily from the preparations of Christmas and the lead up to the summer break. Priorities pile up, the list of ‘things to do’ becomes never ending and the pressures of work and college start to weigh heavily. Worst of all, your negative subconscious starts tempting you to drop everything and give up amidst the pressures of life.
This is something that I am more than familiar with because I have experienced this time and time again.
Before things had become more than overwhelming, I made sure to remove myself from the situation, just for a couple of weeks to adjust. Taking preventive measures to prepare for the stress to come.

Now I’m back in the blogosphere, charged up and ready to go! Currently prioritising business meetings and the importance of taking on quality and not quantity, which is a mistake that I’ve made several times.

To start us off, some you may recognise this fluffy jumper from one of the outfits I wore to fashion week. Well, since then, this vintage gem has kept me not only comfortable but also warm in the coldest of weathers. I found this treasure at a Salvation Army store in the city for just $50 and I haven’t parted ways with it since. I think I’m even in denial that the weather is warming up because even in the warmest of days I find myself wanting to put it on ahahahaha!
I have always loved vintage clothing and it is a perfect fit for someone like me, a student, shopping with cost limitations, however, purchasing clothes without jeopardising the quality and aesthetic.
To create visual depth and compliment it’s vocal point, I wore it with black disco pants and mustard socks against white boots. I could of easily kept it simple with just back and white but to be honest, it’s not me without that little bit of colour hehehe.

To make up for my previous lack of contact, I’ll be posting more frequently within the coming weeks letting you in on all the things I’ve been up to :P

Thanks for visiting and I’ll catch you later this week

Melbourne has always been one of my favourite places in Australia, the music, the people, the cute little alleyways, the fashion, the culture and THE FOOD!!! Oh don’t even get me started about the food!!!
I have only been there twice and both times I absolutely loved it!!!

For the longest time Melbourne was one of the few places I considered moving to. I always imagined moving there for my studies but obviously priorities and goals change over time and lets not forget having to consider the other half as well as the fam bam. Even still, it has never been far from my mind to possibly make the bold move. Until then, I’m more than happy to make excuses to continually visit :P

So with my home away from home in mind, I thought I would share a couple of fun snaps from mine and Chin’s trip there. I’ve also decided to go there again after my birthday in October YAY!!!

Since Melbourne’s weather has four seasons in a day, I found it fun playing dress up to cater to the crazy weather – Coat one day and dress the next. Walking around and exploring, we were definitely getting our tourist on, it was only fitting to choose comfort as the way to go. This meant sneakers, free flowing skirts, soft cotton and stretchy fabrics making winning combinations.

Thanks for visiting !!!

I’ll see you on Saturday with another outfit post :D

HAPPY WEEKEND!!!

I bring you Fashiondiction’s very first giveaway!!!

If you haven’t already heard about KAPTN BRAND, it is a new up and coming street and urban clothing label based in Sydney Australia. Not only is their clothing BANGIN! Minimalistic with sleek black, white and greys plus anyone can rock their gear men and women (you all know how much I love wearing my boyfriend’s clothing HAHAHA!). Not to mention each item practically goes with everything.

“Lead not Follow” is their motto, it is the one thing I truly respect about fashion, the fact that you can express your own individuality through what you wear and that is exactly what drew me to KAPTN. Their clothing inspires you to be creative, be an individual and most importantly be YOU.

What better way to share it than to hold a giveaway for all you beautiful people!!! KAPTN is giving away not one but TWO snapback hats!!!

If your hair is anything like mine, frizzy, uncontrollable, 24 hour bed hair (not in a good way) and just out right CRAZY this maybe the giveaway for you. Between me and you, my secret to a bad hair day is chucking on a snapback and pairing it with a bit of lippy. It honestly saves you the world of time, you don’t have to worry about styling you crazy head of hair. Don’t worry I haven’t forgotten about you men out there, REAL TALK…..it’s a sick hat what more is there to say (see I get you guys hahaha!).

To GET IN IT TO WIN IT scroll down to the bottom of this post for more information.

Thanks again for visiting! I’ll see you guys and girls soon!!!

Hi Everyone!!!

Through the past year that I’ve been blogging, taking outfit photos is not all glamorous as the photos depict.

Most of my outfit posts have been taken by my photographer boyfriend, Chin and as compatible as we are, there are still the rare days that we don’t see eye to eye with the imagery that we are trying to translate in our photos.

Apart from that, there are also the occasional moments of when I’m having a bad day and I just don’t feel like taking pictures of my gloomy self.

Then there are the days that I feel unsure of myself, the days that I’m feeling super insecure………….THE UGLY DAYS! You know what I’m talking about hahaha!

Well this is exactly what this post is ALL about :)

All the outfits that never made it on the blog for all the above reasons and for whatever reasons that made us not share it at the time…..… until now kekeke.

So to celebrate the year that has past, here are never before seen outfits (unedited) :)

P.S. sorry if I’m grumpy in some of them hahahaha, at least you’ll be able to tell, which photos I was having a bad day in.

Thanks for visiting I’ll see you guys in my next post :D

Fashion Food outfit post personal style

To get you guys updated, you haven’t heard from me in a bit because I have been working on some really special posts for the month of March, since it is…….*drum roll* THE 1ST BIRTHDAY OF FASHIONDICTION!!!! WOOT WOOT!

February is the month that we started the blog but March was when we officially launched Fashiondiction and WOW!!! I can’t believe it has already been a year!
So much has changed, we have progressed far more than we had anticipated and what started as a personal hobby has grown into something completely unexpected.

So for Fashiondiction’s birthday celebration month we will be looking back into our fashion looks, outfits that never made it on the blog, special photoshoots, plus so much more (but I’m not saying anymore so you’ll just have to wait and see).

On the very last day of the month keep an eye out because you won’t want to miss our last post ;)

To start it off here are all the outfit posts from the past year!!!

Bikini Top – Victoria’s Secret | Bikini Bottom – American Apparel

Photos taken by – Yunn Chin Photography

HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY EVERYONE!!!

I love 60s fashion so much that I just couldn’t help but do a part 2 of the 60s swimwear inspired outfit post.
Just like in part 1, I mixed and matched the bikini bottoms from American Apparel and bikini top from Victoria’s Secret.
The bright floral prints and eccentric summer colours have summer fun all over it and this is exactly why it is one of my favourite things to wear to the beach.

As you’ve guessed from my greeting, it’s Australia day here down under!!!
It’s the one day in Australia that we celebrate being truly Aussie; going to the beach, having BBQs with the fam bams, meeting up with loved ones and pretty much spending all day in the sun.

With that said, I’m going to keep it short and sweet today but wherever you are, in Australia or not, I hope your are having an awesome weekend :)

Thanks for visiting and I’m looking forward to catching up with you on Tuesday with a new outfit post ;)
