AHH, MONET!

On Sunday 20 April, I was fortunate enough to visit the latest exhibition at the South Australian Art Gallery - Colours of Impressionism - Masterpieces from the Musée D'Orsay. Unfortunately, I never quite made it to Giverny to see Monet's Garden, it had always been a dream of mine to see his famous Water Lily creation. The exhibition consisted of artists such as Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne as well as many, many more. It was a rainy Sunday and I was quickly taken back to the streets of Paris, where artists breathe creativity like air.  For this occasion I decided to dress the part.  I recently purchased this shirt/jumper from Forever New which doubles in practicality and wearability – transitioning from work to casual to dressy effortlessly.  I donned this with a black winters’ cap, black boots, my burgundy backpack (again for practicality), completed with my winter staple – my black cape. I felt...

DEAR LILAH

  My weekend consisted of Peter Rabbit, baking, girly chats and photoshoots! My little cousin Lilah has featured on Fateful Fashion a few times, however this time I wanted to do something special with her.  We decided to head up to the Country, dress up, dance in the rain and capture these special moments. This post is dedicated to her. Dear Lilah, For a little girl so small in stature you are so big in life. You radiate sunshine to everyone you meet, and make their life better off just by knowing you. Your intelligence is surprising and your wisdom is beyond your years. From the moment you were born, I knew I would have a friend for life. I have watched you grow and as the years go by, our bond and friendship is strengthened.  That I am thankful for. Your generosity is admirable and your care for others is something everyone should aim to achieve. You have not only become my...

ALL THAT GLITTERS

I was in Sydney on the weekend, to celebrate a couple of good friends birthdays. It was an absolute amazing weekend, full of good food and good company. On the Saturday night we headed to The Argyle, located in the Rocks. As it was going to be a glam night out, I opted for something glittery. I have been very drawn to ‘all things glittery’ this year, it’s quickly becoming my 2018 theme. I found this fun T-shirt style dress on Pretty Little Thing, which was also very comfortable, as there was lots of dancing with my girls. I was espcially drawn to all the detail in the dress, it gave of a bit of a seveties vibe with the large sequins which also seemed to resemble the Sydney skyline at night. I love a t-shirt dress, because most of the time they can be used for a fun casual look and then...

PARIS – MONTMARTRE

It was your typical spring/summer day in Paris, with sunshine in the sky and clouds on the horizon, we decided to head up to the famous Montmartre for a true Parisian experience. We stopped for a bite to eat as artists of all ages worked their magic around us, it was like a classic French black and white movie. We spent time after, wandering around admiring the work of the French artistes and of course made a few purchases - how could I resist? One thing I was super excited about, being in Paris was the fashion - I felt I had a platform to put together outfits I normally wouldn't wear in my day-to-day life. I donned a pink on pink ensemble, a mink pink crop skivvy, pink flares from Zara and my newly purchased pink kitten heels from Galeries Lafayette and my pink forever new backpack to complete my look! I...

5 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

It's hard to believe Fateful Fashion started 5 years ago. Boy oh boy have things changed, I would have never guessed life would bring me to where I am today.   At 19, I thought I had it all figured out, I had my plan and nothing was going to stop me. I had set backs, then some more, then a few more, but I never stopped dreaming. At 24 going on 25, I still don't have it figured out, and I'm guessing no-one really does! I love the quote 'some of the best days of our lives haven’t happened yet', that excites me! When you feel like you have no clue what is going on and it scares the hell out of you, just know there is always a rainbow at the end of that storm, and that is what we should all aim for - whilst dancing in the rain! I remember when...

BEACH HOPPER

Happy New Year everyone! I'm excited to share with you my very first blog post for 2018! How is it the end of January already?! As some of you may be aware, Adelaide is experiencing a bit of a heat-wave, which created the perfect excuse to go to the beach! On Saturday, my friend and I ventured down to Seacliff beach for some much needed relaxation and rejuvenation, and what better place to reset then at the beach. I'm mostly a river girl, so when I go to the beach - it's exciting because I can get more use out of my 'nicer' bathers that I know won't get ruined by murky water or chlorine. For this occasion, I teamed my Seafolly black & white Chevron one piece with a matching tote and black & white patterned round towel. I have naturally very fair skin, so a one piece (albeit trendy) is also a sensible...

PARIS – PFW A/W 2017

On the 4th July 2017 I had the privilege of attending Paris Fashion Week, Alexis Mabille Haute-Couture Autumn/Winter 2017 at Hotel D’evreux. When I arrived at my hotel in Paris, they handed me the invitation that was sent for me. To say I was excited is a HUGE understatement. I have dreamt of attending Paris Fashion Week for as long as I can remember, and to be invited to a Designers’ Haute-Couture Collection Showing was a little mind-blowing. My instant reaction was to scream and cry from my Paris balcony (which I did) my second was to go shopping to find THE outfit to wear. Luckily, I was in the perfect city to go shopping and on the first day I found THE outfit. The day of the show I was a bunch of nerves, anticipating getting ready and making sure we weren’t late. The time came, and the traffic was manic, fortunately we arrived...

GREENACRES

They say there's nothing better than country air. I love the simplicity of life, a good TV show, Thai takeaway, balmy nights, city lights, fresh air and time to spare. Time seems to move that little bit slower in the country, and offers you time to reflect and enjoy the little things in life. For such an occasion, it is only fitting that you dress the part.  For me, overalls are the perfect match to the rolling hillside.  As a kid, overalls were our uniform, as you grow up they become the item of clothing you least want to wear and as fashion does, it repeats itself. Personally speaking, overalls are back and now as an adult I can appreciate how practical they really are and stylish! I don't know about you, but I find that there are never pockets in women's clothing so to have multiple pockets, I was overjoyed.  I picked these up...

VAMFF 2017

Last Saturday I attended the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) and I already want to go back! I started planning my outfit as soon as I bought my tickets and after a lot of umm’s and ahh’s figuring out what to wear I decided to let my new pink Zara statement pants take the lead.  I teamed this with my bell-sleeve crop (Naked Boutique) which was one of the biggest trends by the way, and finished with statement earrings (Sportsgirl) and my beloved Louboutin’s! My bag for the night was a last minute purchase as I got in to Melbourne, my new baby pink backpack (Sportsgirl)– to match my pants of course! I think I must have tried this outfit on a dozen times in the week leading up, making sure it was the outfit. Located at the Royal Exhibition Building the beautiful architecture was set amongst array of pre-show activities,...

THE DRESSMAKER

You know those meant to be moments? The ones that just happen by pure luck.  When you're not looking, but what you wanted is right in front of you without realising. I had that moment not to long ago.  I was on a 'planned' shopping spree, getting ready for Summer otherwise I binge shop and buy unnecessary and never to be worn items in a frenzy. It was the end of the day and I had just about everything on my list, with one final stop at Bardot I went straight to the sale items and chucked in this dress that usually isn't my taste into my bag just because it was on sale. We've all been there. When I got home I tried it on, hoping it would fit.  It did and I fell in love.  I instantly started rattling off some of the occasions I could wear it, not wanting...

SPRING AFFAIR

I would love to say Spring has Sprung, but it hasn't quite. The weather here has been very temperamental so it's more like, Spring has sprung (sometimes) and that's just a mouthful.  Despite the sever weather warnings we had issued on our State we took a chance and headed to the South Australian Countryside with our destination being the yellow fields of the Barossa. Sometimes all you need is a spontaneous drive to a beautiful location to make your Sunday well spent and clear your head for the week to come. For this occasion I chucked on my Denim skirt, red crop, slip on shoes and topped it off with my new spring staple - the straw hat.  Nothing says Spring more than a cute outfit and a hat.   I picked mine up Saturday from Forever New, I had, had my eye on it for a while and couldn't resist temptation any...

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,...

WILDERNESS

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...

TASSELS & STRIPES

One of the things that I love this season is that tassels are coming back in a huge way! They were no longer considered keychain accessories but, were being featured in clothing, purses and the one that I am loving them on most is shoes. Every shoe from the ankle boot, to the gladiator sandal is having a tassel feature and it is coming out nicely. For the past few months I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of tassel heels and I have recently found them! As soon as I did I could not wait to wear them and was looking for any excuse or occasion. And, what better occasion than a date night with my husband that he set up just so, I could wear my newly favorite pair of high heels. Once I found the occasion the big question left was what to wear these...

WINTER STAPLE

I saw this cape online on Forever New and I couldn;t resist.  I eyed it off for a solid week before purchasing, just to make sure it was something I would get use of, instead of it becoming a novelty piece that would only come out once a year - if that. In that week debating whether or not I should purchase it, I couldn't stop thinking about all the times I could wear it.  Obviously it was a winner. I've already got a fair bit of use out of it, I've found it goes with just about everything, so expect to see many posts showing off my new favourite winter staple.  As you can tell I had a lot of fun taking these photos, it made me feel like I was walking the streets of France all I needed was a beret. To anyone out there looking for a winter coat...
