I went to see Ghost on Thursday Night and the weather had cooled down which is odd but not surprising for an Adelaide summer, however I wasn’t too upset because I love winter fashion.  As soon as the weather starts cooling, my inspiration levels and window-browsing expeditions increase so it’s no surprise I took this opportunity to delve into my winter closet a bit.

I kept it pretty simple and classic with my black pants, boots, hat and a staple white shirt which made my jacket the feature piece of my outfit, yes it’s new too, and yes it’s from Zara (which apparently according to Vogue’s article is meant to be pronounced Dzha-Da) but it was on sale so that justifies it right?

It was a perfect Thursday night adding a bit of excitement into my weekly routine.

FRENCH BOB

Lately, I have been experimenting with new looks to go well with my new haircut. And, I have been feeling the French style with how effortless and chic it looks – especially with short hair. I thought what a perfect time to let out my inner French girl and I had the perfect outfit in mind.

I had purchased an ivory Victorian inspired long sleeve dress from ASOS a while back and had no idea where to wear it to until I got this haircut! I paired it my Victorian inspired dress with a pair of ivory pumps, a feathered coat and topped it off with Chanel red lipstick. Feeling so French I knew the purse I could only accessorize my outfit with was my classic Chanel. It was the most chic I have ever felt. Man, what a haircut and good outfit can do! That day I happened to also have to take care of some very special business downtown which played a perfect setting with my look.

I had never felt so great and confident in such a long time it made the day so much better. You should always have a look that makes you feel amazing that is key. To me it is never about impressing anyone else but yourself and if you have achieved that then by damn show off that confidence! And on that note here’s to confidence and my future adventures as a self made French citizen.

This dress made me feel like I was someone else for the day.  That’s the beauty of fashion, it can change the way you feel about yourself, it’s like wearing a masquerade and it’s up to you, who you wish to be.

I bought this dress the other weekend and instantly fell in love with it, I couldn’t wait to wear and in fact I didn’t wait, I wore it that very night to a shadier side of town and felt like I was Alice just dropped into Wonderland – out of place, but it made me  happy, wearing it.  I don’t normally go for this style, but I have been loving Southern fashion recently and this was a perfect find.  I teamed it with some black ankle boots and a classic red lip.

It got me thinking, that although this may not be my normal style, it doesn’t mean I can’t wear it.  We tend to get stuck in what we should be wearing due to social norms that we often don’t leave our comfort box to try something new, but sometimes it’s what we don’t think suits us that can make us feel more like ourselves.

So shop for you!

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.
