HAPPY AUSTRALIA DAY EVERYONE!!!

I love 60s fashion so much that I just couldn’t help but do a part 2 of the 60s swimwear inspired outfit post.
Just like in part 1, I mixed and matched the bikini bottoms from American Apparel and bikini top from Victoria’s Secret.
The bright floral prints and eccentric summer colours have summer fun all over it and this is exactly why it is one of my favourite things to wear to the beach.

As you’ve guessed from my greeting, it’s Australia day here down under!!!
It’s the one day in Australia that we celebrate being truly Aussie; going to the beach, having BBQs with the fam bams, meeting up with loved ones and pretty much spending all day in the sun.

With that said, I’m going to keep it short and sweet today but wherever you are, in Australia or not, I hope your are having an awesome weekend 🙂

Thanks for visiting and I’m looking forward to catching up with you on Tuesday with a new outfit post 😉

Outfit Post – Summer Swimwear Part 1

Now it’s no secret that I am in love with 60s fashion. If you haven’t already guessed from seeing the 60s inspired photoshoot I styled last year, I have a lot of clothes that have a 60s resemblance and that doesn’t excuse the swimwear I have hiding in my closet.

For years I had constantly been on the search to finding high-waisted swimwear, it wasn’t particularly popular at the time (people did say it reminded them of their grandmothers). But to me, I saw it as classic, elegant and most importantly it covered my incredibly deep belly button (no really, I’m not just saying that, it is seriously a deep looking belly button hahaha!).
It wasn’t until, my trip to America, that I had finally found bottoms that were perfect! Of course I had found it in American Apparel, one of my favourite clothing brands, which usually has fun, youthful and modern fashion.
I mixed and matched the bottoms with a cute bikini top from Victoria’s Secret, that I had also scored in America. This top was the perfect balance of cute and playful, not to mention it fits like a dream!

I don’t usually wear lipstick or make up to the beach hahahaha! I thought it would just be fun to include it in this post and to pay homage to 60s fashion.

Thanks again for visiting and stay tuned for part 2 😉

What’s your preferred swimwear attire?

Outfit Post – My Go To Outfit

Top – August Street | Boyfriend Jeans – Jay Jays | Heels – Wittner

Photos taken by – Yunn Chin Photography

It’s almost time to go back to college but I thought I would share an outfit that I have been living in during the holiday period.

On the days that I’m not working especially on weekends, I want to wear something that’s comfortable, simple yet edgy. So I turn to the ultimate basics -jeans and a t-shirt.

This is my go to outfit on the days that I’m feeling a little insecure about my figure, especially after a night of scoffing down pizza (hahaha! super classy).

Without looking to relaxed, I use contrast and a pop of colour to add that edge. Which is why I absolutely love this t-shirt from August Street. Not only is the material kind to your skin but the back black panel of the T-shirt flatters your figure with the contrast of colour and length.

Another item that I have been living in are these Zebra white leather heels from Wittner. With supportive straps and block heels, they are by far the most comfortable shoes I have worn.

To finish off the look, I tie my hair up in a relaxed high ponytail and wear a colorful shade lippy. This shade is Diva from MAC, what can I say I am a MAC kinda girl hehehe.

This outfit is perfect for a casual brunch or even a dinner date with girlfriends, that’s why I have constantly recycled this look during the holiday period.

What’s your go outfit for the holidays?

Thanks again for visiting and I’ll see you guys and girls soon with another outfit post 😉

Raffles Graduate Showcase – Byzantium

Photos by Yunn Chin Photography

I was so excited to attend the Raffles Graduate Showcase “Byzantium” last month. Being the fashion college that I myself attend, I was interested to see what talent Raffles would introduce into the future fashion industry.

I have wanted to post this showcase for some time now; there were so many amazing designs from each student that it has been a huge struggle to choose the standouts.

Out of the 1000+ images to choose from here are my favourites from the showcase:

Out of all the collections showcased, Matiny Ng’s designs were hands down my favourite! The collection was eccentric, colourful and the use of basic pattens of circles and squares were used in such a unique way. Their collection by far had left the biggest impression on me and Chin.

This collection was another one of my personal favourites. The exploration of gathered, layered materials expressed through the ruffle design was amazing! The delicate use of pastel tones was such a cute and romantic touch.

Outfit Post – Welcome 2014!!!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!! I can’t believe 2014 is here already and this is my first official outfit post for this year!

I’m going to back this up a little to 2012 (give you guys a bit of an insight on how Fashiondiction came about).
Things had taken a turn for the worst for me, which left me lost and confused with what I wanted to do in life.
Going overseas and talking a trip away to Hawaii, Vegas and New York, helped me regain focus, gain my determination back and ignited my passion for life. I was determined to go into 2013 headstrong with no fear and with everything I had.

After 2 years of procrastinating, thinking about starting my own blog, I finally decided to go for it.
I stopped worrying and started planning, I stopped talking and started doing. I was determined to get what I didn’t get from the previous years, which was self-belief.

Since then, it has helped me learn more about myself, open doors for different opportunities, meet some incredible people and most importantly ignited my love for fashion, which made me start my education for a Bachelor in Fashion Marketing.
It’s ironic that the thing I had put off for years (fashion blogging) was the one thing that had opened so many doors and helped me grow into a better version of myself.

The frequent question that had been asked leading into 2014 was “What have you accomplished this year?” and for once I was happy to say “Everything I wanted to”. All the many new years resolutions I had set out in 2013 starting from my health, diet and exercise to my goals and education, I had crossed everything off the list.

The difference of 2013 to the many years before it, was that I didn’t wait for opportunities I looked for it, I took risks, made sacrifices and through the panic attacks, sleepless nights and tears it was all worth it.

2014 is no exception, this year I am going in even more determined then before, leaving nothing to waste or chance. Gone are the years that I procrastinated, wasted time and regret what I didn’t accomplish and blamed everyone but myself.

Lets all make 2014 bigger and better then the last!

What’s are your hopes, aspirations and new years resolutions for 2014 :)?
