SKYFALL

How to dress for a Christmas work break up party?

I always keep these two pieces of advice in my head ‘stay classic’ & ‘less is more’. It’s always important to have a few options in case your first choice doesn’t quite look how you imagined it to be.

This was actually my third choice, and in a way I’m glad my other two didn’t make the cut (that sounds harsh, I’m sorry I love all my clothes), however this outfit – my black jumpsuit I bought from TopShop in South Africa has just enough detailing in it, that I don’t need to over accessories and after running around all day I needed something I could quickly slip in to and with a red lip to finish off I was ready to go.

When I’m in doubt with what to wear for an occasion, and before my desperation kicks in and I go impulse shopping (very dangerous) I take a look in my wardrobe and try teaming pieces together that I haven’t before. Another piece of advice I always follow is by Coco Chanel – ‘I always take one thing off before leaving the house’ as always, less is more.

THANKSGIVING

First off, I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! Mine was fulfilled with family, friends and great food as always.

Except this year was a little extra special due to the fact that my husband and I (still sounds so weird to say) celebrated our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. I am actually very much looking forward to the holidays due to that fact alone. Also, I can’t wait to post photos of my wedding and the bridal events before in due time.

This year for my Thanksgiving outfit I wanted for it to revolve around these amazing pair of black ankle boots by Bar III that I recently purchased (ON SALE). Ankle boots are doing it big this season with skirts, boyfriend jeans, dresses, leggings etc. They are the shoe of 2015 in my opinion. I paired these amazing boots with a red vintage A-line midi skirt and a simple black turtleneck from Target to balance it out and I literally topped it off with a top knot for my hair do. As for my accessories I kept it minimal; Chanel minimal that is. I added my vintage Chanel gold belt chain to tie the whole outfit together and give it the right amount of jewelry. Lastly, I finished it off with my forever classic black Chanel purse and red lipstick.

With the weather getting a little more cold comfort and warmth is key and I was very comfortable in this look! It is easy to put together and each piece is so versatile. The holiday season has just began so you will definitely be seeing these pieces again for special occasions and everyday looks. Let the wearing of boots and to die for coats officially begin!

Xx

USA 2015

Not long after I turned 22, I hopped on a plane heading to the States with one of my favourite travel companions (my dad).  This isn’t my first time to America, I’ve been fortunate enough to travel there on multiple occasions, but this would be the first time heading to Minneapolis.  Why Minneapolis, well a part from the appeal of I’ve never been there before, I have another very dorky reason – The Supernatural Convention was on so we combined that with a road trip through America and it became the trip I’d always hoped for, and more.

We headed to Green Bay, Wisconsin leaving Minneapolis, we hired this beautiful red & shiny Mustang and cruised down the highway. After one night crashed out in Green Bay we headed to Milwaukee (where I saw One Direction perform, fan girl moment) and we did a bit of exploring and shopping, it was a much bigger town than Green Bay but nothing compared to what we were heading in to, Chicago.

Chicago, what a city, a place with some of the best museums, shopping, restaurants, shows, views, what more could you need to help you fall hopelessly in love with this city.
We had dinner in one of the tallest buildings in Chicago, and we had a window seat which was apparently perfect viewing for the fireworks display they hold during summer, however there was only fog surrounding the building, but we didn’t mind because the food was so good. Roughly 5 minutes before the fireworks display  was scheduled to start, the fog started the magically life and sitting on top of Chicago, I felt like a fairy in Neverland.

We also dinned at RPM Italian, Giuliana & Bill Rancics’ restaurant which was amazing, we even got to see Bill & their son Duke make an appearance.
If you’re thinking of heading to Chicago – DO IT, you won’t regret, it’s one of those places that once you leave you already want to go back. If you are planning a visit though, a few must see’s are the Field Museum and the Million Dollar Quartet show.

 From Chicago, we navigated through airports and hoped on busses until we finally got to our hotel with a view that displayed the magnificence of Niagara Falls.
It takes your breath away, the volume of water and the natural beauty of it, it definitely is one of nature’s most powerful resources, we took the boat right up in the midst of the Falls and you can hear it, if power had a voice it would sound like Niagara Falls.
 
We were only there a couple of days, but managed to do everything you can do in Niagara Falls including seeing Harry Connick Jnr at the Casino and almost winning (emphasis on the almost).
It was the halfway mark in my 4 week American adventure and it was time to head to the City that never sleeps, New York City Baby.
I could write forever about New York, but I’ll try to keep this as brief as possible. If you’ve been following our Instagram journey you probably already know what went down where and when but for those of you that haven’t, I met my other favourite travel companion and it was our time to shop, and boy did we shop.

I could have shopped twice as much but I would be broke and would not have enough space in my luggage and there was still lots more to see & do.

There’s a certain feeling having High Tea at the Plaza and browsing through Saks 5th Avenue, you really feel like you’re rubbing shoulders with the best of them and I sure could get used to that.

 While we were in New York, we did the typical bus tour, strolled around Soho, took a bike ride through Central Park, posed out front of the iconic Friends fountain, dinned at the Boathouse on Central Park, shopped some more, saw Matilda and The Lion King which both blew my mind, had room service, a trip to Tiffany’s & Loubiton walked a lot, shopped a bit more.

New York is exactly what you would expect, it’s a cit that always keeps you awake and hungry for life.
(pssttt in case you missed one of our previous posts we attended New York Fashion Week – check out our events page!)

After the hustle and bustle day and night it was time for the next stop on our trip, Vegas baby!
It was the reunion we had been counting down for, for months if not a year! Alexis & I finally teamed up again in the party capital of America for her bachelorette party and that is where I leave you.
To be continued….

2015 AFF – PAOLO SEBASTIAN

Our Adelaide Fashion Festival Weekend ended in the best way possible with front row seats to the new Paolo Sebastian ‘The Snow Maiden’  Autumn/Winter 2016 Collection which was inspired by Slavic Folktales of a Winter Empress.

Where to begin with this collection and better yet this show?

From the props to the faux snow on the ground, down to the lighting and the amazing music collation brought the Snow Maiden to life.

The show started off dim with the instrumental version of Once Upon a December playing in the background opening with a ready to wear long black coat.   From there ti went into all fur looks which included an all fur 50’s inspired dress with long black leather gloves.

We can easily say that was just one of our favourite looks from the show.  It then beautifully transitioned into what Paolo Sebastian is best known for, his unbelievable couture gowns which were exactly that unbelievable.

And once again Paul made what some would consider the impossible, possible.

Sheer, beading, tulle and detailed stitch work are just some of the main forms that made up his gowns. Every time one look came down we couldn’t help but turn and wait to see what beautiful creation was going to follow.  The collection along with the production felt like a dream.  For a moment we forget we were sitting in a marquee in the middle of Adelaide.

Paolo Sebastian took us on an enchanting adventure in a daze of a winter wonderland.  The Adelaide Fashion Festival closed on the highest note and we are honoured to have been able to witness all its glory.

Until next year AFF, we can’t wait!
