Maxi dress – O’NEILL

Photos by – Yunn Chin Photography

So much has happened since the last time I posted, one of which being, within two weeks I have now unexpectedly moved to a new place (CRAZY!!!). This explains why I haven’t posted for more than a week (eeeek! Sorry guys)

I am now also back at college, and there are so many new projects that I am undertaking (more exciting news on this later ;) ).  On top of all the craziness, I am now currently in Melbourne, finally getting some needed time away.

Just before the sunny weather comes to a halt and Autumn settles in, I thought I would sneak one more cheeky summer outfit post.

I have always stayed away from wearing maxi dresses because of the fact that I thought it made me look shorter than I already am. But once I tried one on, my insecurities went out the window and now it is one of my favourite things to wear for sunny weather.
I love how you can wear it to a casual BBQ and dress it up for a dinner date with your favourite person.
I was fortunate enough to get this baby on sale, the pastel floral prints had me at hello and I had to have it.

Next month will be Fashiondiction’s 1 year birthday WOOT WOOT!
Be sure to stay tuned because I’ll be posting some really exciting stuff to celebrate :) !!!!!

Thanks for visiting and I’ll catch you guys and girls soon ;)

HELLO :)!!!

I know this post is exactly a week late; unfortunately I was completely bedridden with a sinus virus last week and for the life of me I could not even lift a finger.

Finally out of my prison of immobility, I’m super excited to share this outfit post with you all!

A couple of weekends ago, Chin and I decided to do a mini road trip to Wollongong, a city that is a 2-hour drive away from Sydney.

It was a really hot summer day, so I thought I would wear something fun, casual and girly. I managed to pull out this old silk, crochet trimmed crop, which I have had for almost 6 years and paired it with high-waisted shorts.
The piping on the shorts, visually adds length to your legs and having longer looking legs is never a bad thing, am I right ladies? hehehe.

I matched the crop with fun laced flats and wore light make up to give it more of that summer feel (to be honest, I hate wearing a lot of make up in summer, because of the hot weather, it just feels like my face has melted off by the end of the day hahahaha).

It was a super fun day; we also visited the Nan Tien Temple, which I thought was absolutely beautiful! Next time your in Wollongong I’d definitely recommend checking it out :).

Now, I mentioned before in my previous posts, that taking photos in front of a big camera in public is very daunting. No matter how many times I do it, I never seem to completely get use to it.
So with this outfit post, Chin and I thought we would try something different; we brought along the camera and decided to do a impromptu shoot.
Between you and me, it was so much better than standing in front of a camera and “posing”. I’ve said it before; I am not in anyway shape or form a model, so this way of taking photos was more in my comfort zone. It was a more realistic view into how I am and how I wear my clothes.

With that said, every now and then we will be doing these types of photos, just to spice things up.

Thanks for visiting!
I’ll see you on Thursday and I promise this time I won’t be sick to miss it ;)

Just before we immerse ourselves in the Christmas sprit, I thought I would do a quick outfit post; this was an outfit I wore to the Ixiah store launch.

When I’m short on cash I get a bit more creative with the choices I make when I shop. I usually find a piece that looks somewhat classic or interesting and dress it up with accessories or style it with other pieces that compliment each other.

With Christmas just around the corner I was running short on cash. This outfit cost me a total of $70, the shoes are old but when I purchased it, they was on sale for $50 at Sheraton shoes and the dress was only $20 at some cheap dress store on Church Street in Parramatta.

The floral printed dress was too much to accessorise with necklaces and earrings since I only have loud jewellery pieces. Instead I thought I would go with print on print, with no accessories, very light makeup and a coloured lippy. The red polka dot printed shoes complimented the dress bringing out the pops of red through the blue.

Thanks again for stopping by and I hope you all have a lovely Christmas!!!

I know you guys are use to seeing me with my hair straight with a full fringe like in my previous outfit posts but recently I’ve been dying for a change!

I am trying to grow it out at the moment, so to resist cutting it and prolonging the process of growth by killing my hair with bleach; I thought it would be best to wear my hair naturally.

Yup, my hair is naturally curly …It’s kind of weird because it wasn’t always curly; I was born with straight hair but for some reason in my teens my mother’s genes kicked in then BAM! One day I woke up with a head full of curls.
I haven’t given up the full fringe yet; I might go back to it when I get bored wearing my hair naturally.

There is also an upside to wearing my hair curly, it literally takes me 5 minutes to fix my hair since I no longer have to straighten it :)
Plus I find the curls suit summer clothes for the hot weather in Sydney (However, the past couple of days it has been more humid then sunny -.-‘) Just a secret between you and me, my forehead would get crazy sweaty under that fringe in hot weather, so I think I choose a good time to give the fringe a break for now hehehe.

Speaking of Summer, I’m so ready to hit the beach, bring out the shorts, skirts, singlets and dresses. Like this awesome skirt that I bought a couple of weeks ago, totally loving it at the moment! I’ve been wearing it with plain tops like white and black basics, perfect for casual days and not to mention teaming it with the occasional pop of colour. It even got featured as a “look of the day” at my college Woot Woot! Check it out on my Instagram under the photos I’ve been tagged in – @fashiondiction

What about you, are you looking at making any changes to your style or hair due to the weather?
