VERSAILLES

There's no comparing the streets of Paris that have been touched by rain.  It is as if they were made for it. Versailles is like unlike any castle you could ever dream of.  The historic fairy-tales that fill the castle are comparable to its' beauty. Every inch of every room is magnificently crafted, fit for a King, or in histories case many Kings. As I wandered the immaturely manicured gardens of Versailles in a white lace dress, part of me got lost. Suddenly, my cares of the Paris rain disappeared and time stood at a standstill in front of rows of mini hedges that oozed the essence of Alice in Wonderland. That is who I become for the afternoon, little lost in history Alice in a Wonderland (albeit packed with tourists). As we listened to the tour guide through our newly purchased headset, crammed like sardines, moving from room to room in one motion, it was easy to...

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...

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...

MAD HATTER

For our final day in London, we treated ourselves to an extra fancy 'Mad Hatters' Tea Party, held at the Sanderson Hotel in beautiful Soho. The food was decadent and enough to put me into a food coma for days. For this occasion, I thought it only fitting to get dressed up and enjoy a pot of freshly brewed Alice in Wonderland themed tea. As this is only the start of a month long trip, I had to restrain from shopping my way through London (it was hard!), however I succumbed in Zara, picking up this bell-sleeved Blazer and white knit.  I teamed this with classic black shorts and sandal heels for a beautiful sunny day in London. There is something about walking the streets of another city, you take it slower and look around and at every turned we were greeted with beautiful quaint architecture and charisma. London, you have been wonderful and I...

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...

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...

LIFOU

At our first stop, we disembarked into the tranquil and secluded Lifou. We spent the day exploring the streets of the island, which were lined with palm and frangipani trees and kayaking to the more unexplored turfs by ocean. We made our way around the island in our vehicle of choice the Kayak, and uncovered a secluded beach. There’s no feeling quite like it than being on your own little beach and although you are only walking distance back to the hut where they hired out the Kayaks, you felt isolated and the serenity was captivating, it makes you really feel the island and get a taste of what it would be like to be completely dependent on the islands natural resources and detached from the wide web of the world. But then how we would get all our fashion inspiration. For a day packed of exploring I wanted to make sure I was practical...

NAUTICA

If you were wondering why we were a bit MIA, I was sailing the Pacific Ocean, Island hopping from Vanuatu to New Caledonia and Alexis has been busing working on something special and top secret! We spent 7 nights on board the P&O Pacifc Dawn and travelled to, two Islands; Lifou & Pt Villa. When we were just cruising at Sea, we were never at a loss of things to do., with all the entertainment on board, we struggled to fit in time to work on our tans (hence why there isn't really one). This has been my fourth Cruise, and I still never get sick of them, they are the ideal holiday for singles, couples, families and solo travellers, there truly is something for everyone on board and the best thing about it is they take you around the world, getting to visit places you may never have thought to travel to. So...

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...

Georgia Hall Fateful Fashion at NYFW

NYFW

I know New York Fashion Week may seem like months ago but for us it’s still running through our veins as we recap on all that went down. We were SO fortunate enough to have been invited this year, unfortunately Alexis’ was off doing wedding stuff so she couldn’t make it so I had to take one for the team and represent Fateful Fashion in the Big Apple. When we started this blog, we had no idea where it would lead us. Sure we had goals and we  continue to set them but if someone would have said to me 3 years ago that you would be attending the Australian Showcase at New York Fashion Week, I would have responded with a ‘yeah right’. Well on September 10 2015, one of my biggest dreams came true, and as I got out of the cliché yellow cab at Pier 59 Studio’s a rush of...

ST PATTY’S DAY

Well it was St Patrick's Day and I spent it on the sunny shores of Queesland at the impeccable Versace Hotel. Keeping in the spirit of things I teamed my neon green bikini with my flowey green skirt for a day resting by the pool. I always thought bather cover ups had to consist of kaftans and beachy dresses, but this skirt was like a light blanket that almost put me to sleep lazing on the lazy boys whilst reading #GIRLBOSS. I hope you all spent your St Patty’s day in true Irish Fashion, drinking, wearing green and feeling green the next day! Xo ...

Melbourne Fashion Festival – VAMFF

On Saturday night I attended the VIP Opening of Melbourne Fashion Festival. The event was presented by David Jones and supported by Vogue Australia and kicked off with a parade of male models as drummer boys followed by the ethereal Camilla collection. It was one of the most captivating fashion festivals I have EVER attended. It was a moment I will never forget, the show not only left me in awe but reignited my love for everything fashion. The festival showcased a forecast of 70s fashion making a massive comeback in a really, really good way, with the music of Bob Dylan accompanying the models as they paraded in fierce force, it was no ordinary runway parade, it was an experience one everyone can now shop on VAMFF. For the opening of Melbourne Fashion Festival I wore this two piece (yes, another one) from Forever New, which I teamed with my classic black heels,...

Melbourne Town

Last weekend I did a quick one night visit to Melbourne for one of my best friends' surprise party and it's safe to say, we had a lot of fun! While we I was there I took a few outfit snaps on our walk around Melbourne, it's so easy to be inspired there yet it was hard not having any photobombs. X Wearing: Topshop Jeans Cotton On Crop Top Sportsgirl Cardigan and Tony Bianco Timabalands....

Melbourne Snapshots

So the other weekend my friend and I spent the weekend in Melbourne (mostly Shopping – not that, that’s a surprise). We did the expected for all Australians when going to Melboune – H&M, the building was majestic, we walked past it on the first night and the bright red neon lights were calling my name! As it was a ‘fun’ trip I decided to keep this post fairly fun and candid so I tried something new with my photos. I wore this outfit to the Casino on the Saturday night – and yes I won (not a lot) haha! Overall it was a fun trip and fortunately I didn’t spend as much as I was expecting which is always a bonus! I did however buy this beautiful Tan Suede jacket which has kept me so warm this winter and it was on SALE! Top: Paint it Red from Denim & Cloth Skirt: Bardot Shoes: Marco Gianni Clutch:...
