PAJAMA PARTY

One of the biggest trends this season has been the pajama look and I had been dying to try it! Every major celebrity, blogger etc. has been sporting it and each killing it in their own way.  Particularly my girl RiRi! She has made it one of her staple looks and I’m not complaining! Earlier this year while I was thrift shopping I came across a men's blue silk pajama shirt about as tall as me but, as soon as I laid eyes on it I had to have it. I probably looked crazy when I was purchasing it but I knew exactly how I wanted to wear it! I had been waiting for the perfect time to wear it and finally thought screw it I'll wear it out to dinner. My whole look from the get go was inspired from Rihanna down to the posing of this shoot. RiRi gives you...

23

The other week I celebrated my 23 birthday.  I had an anxiety attack when I turned 21, thinking I was rapidly growing old and running out of time. This year however I felt confident, maybe it's true, you worry less as you start getting older, and start focusing on achievements. I am really excited about this year, I have a good feeling about it. To ring in being 23, I decided to take my fashion back  a few era's for my new era and took inspiration from the 70's. I bought my whole outfit (minus my trusty Steve Maddens') from Naked boutique in Rundle Mall, it was there and it was lust at first sight.  I just love the bell sleeves and the skirt went perfectly, I even found a matching neck tie from Bardot.  The outfit was coming together #fatefully. The best part about it was that I could re-wear it and it...

BROWN IS THE NEW BLACK

For starters, brown is a very underestimated color in my opinion. And, for me it is a color I rarely use unless it is in boot form. This season I have challenged myself to wear colors that I would not normally wear such as light, pastel and brown. Black is my go to – always has been, always will be. But, I have had this brown skirt since I was in high school (yes, you read that right) and I have never wanted to get rid of it because it has such a classic look to it. So, finally after a few years (five to be exact) I decided to dust it off and bring it out for a date night with my husband. It was nothing big just a week night out for dinner at one of our favorite places in Fresno and my oldie find. Brown is sometimes a...

ALICE IN WONDERLAND

It was a foggy Sunday - the perfect day for a drive. We headed up to Stirling and run for shelter straight into the woods and spent the day driving aimlessly in no set direction and uncovered some pretty spectacular places. Even though it has been freezing to the point where I can't feel my fingers and my gloves are nowhere to be found, there is something about Winter that just draws my attention.  Maybe it's the way the fog seeps through the tree's or it could be the fashion. Winter is by far my favourite season for trends, I know I say it all the time but where else can you wear a cap and a hat and run around the Botanic Gardens freezing your butt off! These adventures are becoming quite a regular occurance so I have been planning ahead with my outfits. I've wanted another opporunity to wear my cape, this time...

BOND, JANE BOND

The suit: Noun. (plural power suits) A suit stereotypically associated with the 1980s, characterized by sharp cuts, wide shoulder pads, and a stiff rigidity. (science fiction) A powered exoskeleton. Alexis: The pantsuit to me sends such a strong message fashionably and just all around in general. It can be easily worn for a day at the office and go straight into nightlife after. It is sexy, professional and powerful. And, the thing that I love most is that it can be styled in so many different ways! I decided for my mom’s 40th birthday party which was Frank Sinatra themed that it was the perfect occasion to belt out a pantsuit look. Although it is summer time here I was really into the tuxedo look due to Frank Sinatra of course and went with a black tie inspired pantsuit. I opted for a jeweled statement choker necklace rather than a bow tie. And,...
