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...

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...

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...

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,...

It's that time of the year again, where all your dreamiest fairytales come to life in Paris Fashion Week. In the city of Love & Fashion, designers showcase their best Haute Couture Wear for our eyes to lust over. Every year there is always one designer that knocks them all out of the park and this year we are giving that special mention to Adelaide's own Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian. Paolo Sebastian is showcasing his Gilded Wings Couture Collection  AW16/17 for the first time in Paris, an inspiration and friend he has done it again.  Somehow his imagination has created everything we never realised we wanted. Paul's collection is now showing at La Maison Champs Elysees inspired by a Woodland Faery and as Paul said himself "I want my designs to capture the imagination and allow people to dream" and dreaming we are.

Last weekend my friend and I decided to go on a drive through the Adelaide Hills.  It's easy to forget sometimes how much beauty you are surrounded by so close to home. I have a serious case of Wanderlust and am always looking for my next destination to travel to.  Recently I have been seeking out some of South Australia's top destinations and there are so many! I am excited to see what more is at my backdoor. We decided to just keep trying and were overcome by beautiful lookouts and nature at our every corner, I love this time of the year, everything has just been woken up by rain and dew with a blanket of greenery. For this adventure day I decided to dress the part, wearing my favourite ripped jeans and bomber jacket topped with boots and a hat and the most perfect top for any adventure, my Jurassic Park...
