Spring has always been my favourite season of the year, besides the fact that it falls on my birthday. It is the warming feeling of the sun, the cooling breeze of the air and most importantly, the colours of the rainbow painted across fields of green that gets me every time.
As most things, however, there are negatives, one of which is hay fever……Oh that dreaded hay fever !!! I’m not just talking about getting little sniffles here and there, I’m talking about the whole shebang: itchy mouth, inflamed red eyes, constant sneezing and nose running like a tap. Yup, if you ever see me in Spring, expect the worst, I am by no means at my best hahahahaha!
Whatever the case, I freaking love spring! Call me a romantic or just plain cheesy, I always saw Spring as a time for new beginnings, I get the sudden spark of inspiration and drive.

I also noticed that my direction in clothing quickly changes. The urge of wearing pants, suddenly changes to shorts, my choices of black and white quickly turns to bright colours and the constant want to wear skirts/dresses is at an all time high.
One type of clothing in particular that I subconsciously keep taking out for a spin, is this oversized floral print midi skirt. Nothing in my wardrobe shouts Spring more than this little number.
Since the weather is currently in-between hot and cold, I find I can never go wrong with this choice. The over the knee length and thick material provides the right balance, accommodating both cool and warm weather.
Because of its bight colourful aesthetic, I find it easier to wear it with basic black and white, just like in this outfit post. However, on days I’m feeling extra confident, I style it with contrasting colours as well as mixing it up with different patterns.
I do need to admit, that the only downside to this skirt is the fact that it is so distinctive, which limits the number of times I can wear it without being to repetitious. In all honesty, however, I am proud about being a serial wardrobe repeat, just as long as there are slight changes to accessories, tops and bottoms. I’m sure I don’t need to give you a heads up that this isn’t the last time you’ll be seeing this skirt HAHAHAHA!

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

I’m so glad I’m finally on holidays and relieved from assessments, along with stress from work due to the end of financial year. I can finally unwind, relax and catch up on my much loved blogging!!!

Staring with the Wish Style Challenge event I had the honour of attending late last month. With Wish releasing their amazing winter collection, a competition called Winter in The City was held by the clothing label early May. With the support of Honda Australia, the challenge was to style a piece of the Wish winter collection in your own way.

With some of Australia’s best up and coming fashion bloggers taking part, the calibre of entries were simply sublime. I was so happy to attend the event held in such an amazing venue with canapés and frequent flowing drinks (hahaha I can never complain when 2 of my vices have been

answered). wish 6 Bloggers from all over Australia in Perth Canberra and Melbourne attended to celebrate the event and the atmosphere was so eccentric leading up to the announcement of the winner, the prize being a HONDA CITY…. SAY WHAT?!!! 10368427_738885012821804_1858363298950906048_n Out of the many who entered, the 3 carefully selected finalists styling such stunning looks were: Angeline from Lovethread wish love thred Charlotte from Winston and Willow wish winston and willow Kiara from  Lion in The Wild wish lion in the wild Kiara King was announced the winner taking home the Honda City. WOOT WOOT!!! wish 3wish 4 I have never really been to such a big event with so many talent and amazing bloggers, it can be a super intimidating experience and if you know me personally you know how awkward I get hahaha! I’m so glad I had Camille from from Frilly Skirts there, since we met the first time last year at another event, I’ve spent time with her and her incredibly talented photographer/blogger boyfriend Ramon and now I see them both as my really dear friends. wish 2 It was such a fun night and I am so grateful to Wish for organising an incredible event. Everyone was so nice and friendly, there was even a small dance floor; I was dropping it like it was hot all night, Hahahaha! not really but it was still super fun to get our dance on! This is why I love going to these events and meeting people that share the same interests and experiences, it is something I truly appreciate about the blogging world and the blogging community. I can’t wait for the next Wish Style Challenge!!! Thanks for visiting !! I’ll see you soon with another event post ;) wish 5 Sharon Jiang from Primed and Primed, Carmen Cheung, Jocelyn Nguyen  Wish-7 Sharon Jiang, Samantha Stroud from Style by KYS and Camille from Frilly Skirts Wish-8

Since our first Fashion Week, blogging life has been crazier than ever! Definitely a response that we did not expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised and humbled by the amount of people who have taken an interest in what we do :). The down side is I have not been able to move at such a rapid pace, thus the delayed posts.
After catching a breath from the chaos, I have been able to re-organise and finally work to getting these posts up to date, starting with this one, YAY!!!

The people of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Sydney were both compelling and intriguing. I never imagined having the opportunity to attend such a celebrated event within the fashion world. In the past, I had imagined it as walking into what I would think is the equivalent of a dream like circus but in fashion. With gorgeous people who wore crazy outfits that were strange, aesthetically confusing, however, entertaining, shocking and at times humorous. I would never be able to make sense of why people would wear what they wore and the thought process behind it…..was it to seek attention, maybe?
It was not until I myself had attended the event, interacted, conversed and immersed myself in Fashion Week that I started to answer those questions.

What I had taken away from the eventful week was that the thought process behind each outfit, it was not for entertainment, earning the right for fashion exclusivity, nor gaining attention from the public or media (for most anyway). It was purely for self expression, creativity and making a personal statement of who you are through what you wore. There was a beauty about it, the concept of wearing what you wanted without the insecurities of boundaries and judgement, usually received from the public who easily misunderstands an individuals fashion choice. Fashion Week was a chance to be expressive, use fashion as a language and communicate with those who share that common understanding. I loved every minute of Fashion Week, it was like Christmas but in different sense hahaha!

Here are some of the styles that caught my eye, some of the people that inspire me and some of the people that I look up to who I had the pleasure of meeting :)

Which one is your favourite outfit?

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you tomorrow with some long overdue outfit posts hehehe.

k-is-for-Kani

K is for Konnie, such a pleasure meeting a fellow fashion blogger who is so inspiring with her unique sense of style.

Margaret-Zhang

Who couldn’t forget the stunning Margaret Zhang from Shine By Three, so breathtakingly beautiful and every time I see here I get completely star struck and embarrass myself with unthought of jumbled words (*sigh, shakes head*). Besides the first embarrassing encounter I had with her, I thought It would be best to keep my distance hahaha!. Till next time, maybe I’ll have the guts to say hi again.

MBFWA_2014_NicoleWarne

Of course my absolute favourite fashion blogger Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage. She is the epitome of beauty, inside and out, the very person who inspired me to start my road into fashion and the person who inspires me till this day. It was such a dream come true being in the presence of blogger royalty.
