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 be swallowed up by it all.

However today I was not a tourist, I was dressed up, fit for my afternoon tea with the King and Marie Antoinette.

The beauty of Versailles is worth whatever weather.

My advice for those travelling to Versailles – make sure to dress the part, of course not for practicality but for your inner child who always wanted to be a Prince or Princess living in a Castle overlooking endless green gardens.

ALL THAT GLITTERS

28312396_10156128799617118_1584108701_oI 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 dressed up easily with a pair of heels and statement earings.

A weekend getaway is always a good excuse for a new outfit, I feel you can be a bit bolder with your choices as well when you are away from home, it’s always good to get out of your comfort zone!

I also did a VLOG whilst in Sydney which I will be posting this month, which covers the topic of fashion and travelling, and how to pack smartly! I also show a glimpse of this outfit!

Stay tuned for many more glittery looks this year!

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.

27999171_10156108909472118_838028998_o 27999385_10156108909432118_10648988_o

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 planned a lot of my outfits ahead of my trip, however this particular outfit came to me unpacking my suitcase in our Paris apartment – double colouring is always a risk, but it’s the risks you don’t take that you regret.

For me, I felt like I slipped right in and as it started to rain, the scene was perfectly set.

BEACH HOPPER

20180122_110443

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.

20180120_203311 2018-01-24 06.23.52 1

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 choice for myself.  However this particular suit gives off unfortunate tan lines – but hey, small price to pay for fashion!

The water was crystal clear, slightly cool which became a needed relief from the steamy sun, the sand hot but soft and the atmosphere of Seacliff was busy, yet chilled.

20180120_203359

Nothing feels more Australian to me, then spending the day at the beach to hopping to another beach at night, letting your hair be free and makeup low-key, it’s a cleansing feeling.

With the new year already in full swing, it’s nice to take a moment and have fun, not worry about the to-do list, let go of inhabitations and simply be.

2018-01-20 05.20.15 1

This is the theme I am intending for this year, to let go of what doesn’t serve me and just be. Easier said than done, but I believe everything is a practice and good things take time.

This year, instead of resolutions, I’ve set intentions, including some goals, but mainly a focus on joy and being present.

I hope you’ve all had a wonderful start to the new year, and that your 2018 only gets better and better!

PARIS – PFW A/W 2017

20292176_10155539286812118_1234135985_n

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 just in time and arrived at Hotel D’evreux located next to the Ritz, where we went after for a ‘post-show’ drink (as you do).

We were greeted at the door by fancy models in suits and headed up to the collection showcase where we were provided with champagne.

All the guests were dressed to the nines and I wasn’t sure where to look. Couture gowns were displayed in every room, where the rooms resembled the Palace of Versailles – high ceilings and gold trimmings, it was something out of a dream.

We spent the next hour, flowing from room to room gushing over the gorgeous gowns, which took over 3 weeks to complete (each) and had 4 people working on them at a time.

Alexis Mabille is an International Designer, having worked with Christian Dior and Yves Saint Laurent before going out on his own with brand – Alexis Mabille. Alexis has also worked with the likes of Dita Von Tesse, has had a feature in Vogue and has over 40,000 followers on Instagram.

I was fortunate enough to catch up with Alexis and talk to him about his designs and the process involved, the passion in his voice when describing the collection was that of a true artist.

I was so honoured to be able to have the chance to meet Alexis and attend his Haute-Couture Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection Showcase and will forever remember every second of it.

20370445_10155539286857118_1430736998_n

It’s not every day you get to go to Paris Fashion Week, and it’s not every day your dreams come true. On the 4th July 2017, one of my lifelong goals and dreams came true and it was a surreal/proud moment, one that will forever be cherished.

I am very fortunate to have this platform and share with you the opportunities I’ve had, and people I’ve met, that I never thought possible, I’m so grateful for everything Fateful Fashion has brought into my life and all the experiences associated, as they say ‘little girls with dreams, become women with vision’.

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 already can’t wait to visit again soon.

For anyone visiting London, I highly recommend the Sanderson for a High Tea with the Mad Hatter and you can be just like Alice, in a Wonderland.

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 longer, especially due to the fact that it was a beautiful Spring Day and I needed a hat.

You can just about team anything with a denim skirt and I thought red and blue would work perfectly with the countryside backdrop.

As the weather warms up, my spring/summer aim is to see more of the beautiful State of SA, there are so many hidden treasures around and I want to uncover them all.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend, I know I did, running through fields of flowers and greenery.

Nothing makes your soul happier than being one with nature.

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 shirt.

If you are ever at a loss of what to do on a chilly morning or afternoon, jump in the car and just keep driving, you will not be dissapointed.

I can’t wait to share with you my next South Australian secret.

Bangalore (aka Bengaluru) is the capital of India’s southern Karnataka state, the centre of India’s high-tech industry, known for it’s greenery, architecture and of course culture, our travel bucket list just keeps growing.
I chatted to Shalini to find out a bit more about the fashion community and India.  Check out the interview below.

Describe the blogging community in India?
Blogging in India is growing at a rapid pace, however, professional blogging in India is still not considered a full-time job.
I’ve been a professional blogger for the last 4 years, and probably more than 1000 times people have asked me what I do for a living!
When I respond that I’m a blogger, I can see the confused faces asking “What is blogging ??”

How would you describe StylishbyNature and your style?
StylishByNature.com is Indian fashion blog, street style and beauty blog for all like-minded people who believe that style runs in their blood and is as important as breathing. Here you will find lifestyle, street style, vintage, designer couture collections, affordable fashion, product reviews; everything that can be useful to your image. Look forward to more on fashion, food, fitness, fun, friends and flavors of life.

My style is eclectic. I buy in luxury boutiques but also in casual stores. My goal is to show you how we can be beautiful, trendy, stylish in every sense, pondering the purchase according to the latest trends of the moment! I hope to be a source of inspiration for everyone who likes fashion and those who want to embrace this world.

What are the best places to shop in India?
India is a shopaholic’s paradise. Flea markets, malls, designer boutiques, Exquisite handicrafts and a number of shopping arcades cater to every taste. India celebrates shopping in all its hues.
Few of my Best Shopping Destinations in India are –
Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Hyderabad, Lucknow, Varanasi, Mysore

What is India’s best kept travel secret?
In a country as vast, geographically diverse, and steeped in legend as India, every place has a story to tell.
Submerged chapels and unexplored caves—there’s plenty to discover, if you know where to look.

One of them is ‘Gulf of Mannar, Tamil Nadu’. he entire stretch from the pilgrimage town of Rameswaram to the Gulf of Mannar Marine National Park at the southern tip of India is a piece of pure wonder.

Thank you Shalini for sharing with us all your tips on India & Fashion, we look forward to seeing how your blog grows

CHINA BLOGGER FEATURE

We have just started a new feature on our blog, where we will be interviewing bloggers from all around the world.

A different month will bring you a different country.

We are so excited about launching this,  for it incorporates both our love of fashion & travel and what better way to see the world (through a screen) than from a bloggers point of view.

For our first month, April we have decided to focus on China as it the start of their Shanghai Fashion Festival, located on the central coast, Shanghai is China’s biggest city and global financial hub – definitely just got added to our bucket lists.

We are proud to introduce China Fashion Bloggers who have been kind enough to give us a little insight in to their fashion world! They have recently added a new Designer Feature showcasing Runway Photos and a Bloggers‘ page which shows all the contributing bloggers that make CFB possible!

See the interview below

Describe the blogging community in China?

Blogging in China is still relatively new. A lot of people call themselves bloggers as a sort of “catch all” phrase for KOLs, influencers, or celebrities that don’t have a specific profession like acting or singing… this has diluted the term, and the idea of a blogger is even further diluted by platforms like Weibo. Weibo is a microblogging service, so many people see themselves as bloggers, which is both good and bad.

Anyway can blog in China, and a lot of more independent and forward-thinking individuals have already jumped on board… but the number of high-quality bloggers in China right now are few and far between. CFB strives to identify the best blogging talent and put them all in one place, to foster a community of like-minded individuals with different perspectives. Unfortunately a lot of people don’t understand bloggers or think it is a nasty word for people with questionable working status and morals, but bloggers have a lot to offer not only the fashion community in China but society at large.

Unfortunately a lot of blogging platforms need a VPN to access in China, so there may be a couple of very famous bloggers but the community as a whole is still in its very early stages

How would you describe China Fashion Bloggers and your style?

CFB is the perfect bridge between designers, retailers, and consumers in China. We offer a lot of different perspectives and styles. The style of the site is clean and minimal, as we choose to put the spotlight on our bloggers’ content as opposed to the design of the site itself.

In terms of my personal style, I like things that are obscure, ethnic, and different. It’s a reflection of me as a mud-blood, being both Korean and American. I like mixing ideas and patterns and proportions to create something new.

Best places to shop in China?

MHT, Triple Major, Autumn Sonata, Alter, Dong Liang, Lane Crawford, 10 Corso Como

China’s best kept travel secret?

Street food. Most people are afraid of it, but you should definitely try everything (except for maybe the meat products)… it’s cheap but better than a lot of fancy places in China.

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 and what better practicality is there than a cute red one piece (aside from when you need to go to the toilet and of course the tan lines) but all for the sake of fashion.  Teamed with every girl’s island staple – ripped jean shorts and I was set.

If you are still not convinced on cruises – think of the destinations you get to visit that may not be on your radar and maybe my next and final post will sway your judgement.

Until then, stay fashionable

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 here is a snippet of my time on board, wearing one of my favourite Seafolly Bikini’s and Iconic Cover up, teamed with the classic boat hat from Sportsgirl.

Make sure you check back because I still have a few more posts to share with you.

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.

fateful-fashion-usa-2015-2
          
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.
 fateful-fashion-usa-2015-3
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….

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 emotions ran through me that almost brought me to tears.

I was living my dream, how lucky am I!!!

Being in New York alone is everything a girl obsessed with fashion lusts over but to be there when Fashion Week commenced, is an experience I will never forget.

As the lights dimmed, I had my camera ready, Kygo started up and out came the Australian pride.

With brands such as  Belluccio, Viktoria Novak, Catherine R Couture, Deborah Selleck Couture, Luom.o, Mae’ Sunday, Nadz & Sabs and When Freddie Met Lilly, Bec & Bridge,  Emma Mulholland X Mambo, Sabo Luxe, Duskii Active, Hunt & Heart, Antonella Ianni, Eder+Berk, Emu Designs, Laguna Sydney, Mauricio Alpizar, Tatiana Light and fellow Adelaide girl Simmone Standing

I felt like a very proud Australian at that moment and I went a little snap happy trying to capture all my favourite garments (which was a lot of them).

We made a pact from the start with New York in our headlights and all we have to say is to the City that never sleeps, no place in the world can compare and New York, we’ll be back.

I apologize we have been a little dormant lately, it’s been a bit of a crazy time travelling around America (can’t complain) but we have a tonne of content coming your way so make sure you’re following us, so you don’t miss out on fashion and fashion and well, more fashion.

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!

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, clutch and my new very blonde hair.

The beauty of two pieces is not only the functionality but the multi-purpose you get from them, which is my excuse every time I buy a twin-set.

You can now shop this look too at Forever New, whilst your browsing the inter-web for David Jones new collection of all brands showcased at VAMFF.

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.

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!
