Fluro Aztec Oversized Cardigan

Oversized Cardigan – Boohoo | Disco Pants – American Apparel | Crop Too – Supre | Heels – Wandering souls | Belt – Vintage

Photographer – Yunn Chin

Wow! It’s been so long since I’ve posted an outfit.

I’m usually more excited to post about a photoshoot I’ve styled or an event I went to, which makes it surprising that I’m actually excited about an outfit post. (It’s probably just because it’s been a while since I’ve shared what’s in my closet)

Something this winter that I have recycled, reused and re-worn again and again is my fluro Aztec oversized cardigan. This past month has been unforgiving; cold, wet and grey skies but through it all, my cardigan has saved me from some miserable cold winter days and nights. Plus I bought it on sale, which makes it that much sweeter Woot Woot!

I wore this outfit over lunch with girlfriends and over the weekend. Even though the weather has been depressing, I’m a true believer of brightening up your day with some colour.

My favourite match with this cardigan is my lavender disco pants, the colours compliment each other so well.
Not to give people eyestrain with too much colour, I wore a basic black crop. Wearing an oversized throw over can make you look shorter so teaming it up with high-waist pants and a crop can compliment you length.
To balance the colours, I wore a bright peach belt and black tipped pumps.

I know for some, this cardigan may be to florescent for your liking, however, don’t be fooled by my crazy way of styling. To tame it down you can pair it with a basic LBD or black pants and a black top.

What item of clothing has kept you alive this winter? I’d love to know 😉

This week I’ll be posting the first bridal shoot I’ve styled, EXCITING!

Keep a look out on the behind the scenes photos which will be up soon.

Thanks for visiting 🙂

Sydney Fashion Weekend Part 1

Hello! Long time no post!

Sorry everyone! I know it’s been a whole week since I’ve posted compared to my usual 3 times a week update.

Last week was so crazy for me; I had assessments due, end of month deadline for work and a farewell. Not to mention Sydney Fashion Weekend and the first bridal photoshoot I’ve ever styled happened the week before.

Yeah, I was slightly overwhelmed but the good news is I have so much to update you on! Starting with SYDNEY FASHION WEEKEND!

Sydney Fashion Weekend is all about YOU! The shopaholics! They have everything a girl could want, great shopping at affordable prices, bubbly to share with the girls and a fashion show spread over four days; Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Me and Camille Sioco (www.frillyskirts.net) represented WhatIWear.com and Fashion blogger Jess Tuong came too representing her blog (www.mindbodyshop.com).

It was awesome, we got media passes for all access, totally the best!

This is the first time I’ve ever been so I had no idea what to expect. The moment we walked in, it was designer pop up shops everywhere…. It was like I had died and gone to fashion heaven!

Here’s a little taste of what Sydney Fashion Weekend was like.

Stay tuned this week to see photos of the fashion show, snaps of some stylish designers and people. I will also be giving you the inside scoop on the best day to go for discounts on designer clothes so don’t miss out!

Leather, Snake Skin and Panther Print

Dress – Jorge  |  Leather Jacket –  Revival  |  Clutch – Forever New  |  Knee High Black Socks – Sportsgirl  |  Leather Ankle Boots – ZU  |  Necklace – Forever 21 |  Earrings – Diva

On the 13th of April, I attended my very first label launch for Tokyo Twerk. The launch was amazing along with the new collection released by Jenny and Christine Le.

For the event I wanted to wear something a little more edgy than my usual default cutesy style. I decided to pull out my classic leather jacket from hiding and teamed it up with a colourful printed dress. I went with my purple panther printed dress from Jorge.

Knowing I’d be getting my dance on, I wore THE most comfortable ankle boots from ZU (my new fave autumn staple). The weather was a little chilly that night, so I wore my black knee high socks with my ankle boots. To give the outfit more depth and texture I wore black and gold accessories. The earrings are made out of wood and I teamed the outfit with a statement faux snakeskin textured clutch.

Tokyo Twerk will be releasing their website soon, so I’ll keep you guys posted.

This Wednesday Ill be posting more on the event I attended on Saturday “WhatIWear – Fashion Gathering” so stay tuned!!!

60’s Inspired Photo – Shoot Behind the Scenes

As much as I had planned and organised the shoot like a Nazi for two weeks, the main challenge I had to face was trying to get all the photographers, the make-up artist and models to come to an agreement for a place and time. It was definitely a struggle, since we all come from different areas in Sydney and have different schedules and commitments.

Both models could only stay till 2:00pm as they had other plans, the location that we were shooting at only allowed us to stay till 12:00pm and the car that we were using for the shoot was only available in the morning.

Luckily we were able to overcome the lapses and restrictions by working as a team and managing our time appropriately. To ensure everything would go according to plan, I wrote up a timetable with estimations on how long everything would take – the make-up, the hair, traveling time, time we had to arrive at the location and duration of the shoot. So we weren’t too tight on time and to give more leeway to shooting we had to start earlier, which meant starting the hair and make-up at 6:00am to start shooting from 10:00am-12:00pm. During the day this timetable was very effective since there was always someone monitoring the time and reminding us how long we had left. Everyone who couldn’t get to the location we organised someone to pick them up and take back home.

In retrospect, distance and time were our biggest enemies since we had to organise how to get everyone in one place and shoot in such a limited time frame.

In the end the shoot was a success!!!

Here are the rest of the behind the scene photos.

Stay tuned this Friday for the finished photos and the concept behind the whole shoot 🙂

60’s Inspired Photoshoot

I am soooo excited to finally post some photos that aren’t of me!!!

Today I did a 60’s inspired fashion shoot for an application for a fashion collage called Raffles. I have directed and styled shoots before, but never for my own concept, so this shoot was super important to me. Later this week I will be posting more behind the scene photos and let you guys know the story behind the whole process of the shoot. But for now I thought I’d give you guys a sneak peak of the action on set today.

At the end of the week, I’ll be posting the end result so stay tuned. Trust me you do not want to miss the finished photos!!!

Animal Print

Dress – Jorge | Flats – Court Couture  |  Denim Jacket – Cotton On

Saturday is usually the night that everyone is out and about. For me, it was a night out to dinner with friends and I couldn’t think of a better night to show off my new animal print dress from Jorge. Now trust me when I say that the one thing my wardrobe is lacking is animal print. Besides this dress, I only have one leopard print top in my entire wardrobe. I’m not usually a fan of animal print clothing unless I see something that I NEED to have and this dress was it! Not only did I score it on sale, but I also couldn’t resist the colour-saturated print. This isn’t your typical animal print dress with black spots or zebra stripes. From afar it can easily be mistaken for a trendy galaxy dress, but if you have a closer look, you can see the head of a fierce tiger ready to bite. Wearing something like this somehow makes me feel empowered and strong. It’s funny how clothes can bring out hidden confidence you thought you never had.

I was only recently introduced to the label Jorge through ‘Catch of the Day’. For those who aren’t familiar, it’s a website that lists deals and discounts currently running. I’m surprised I didn’t find the label sooner, now I’m in love with their clothes. Jorge is an Australian label that has a diverse range of clothes with a style that mixes sexy and cute. Their collections showcase loud colours, bold prints and statement pieces. For those who love wearing pieces with bright colours or fun prints to liven up your style, this will definitely be a label you’ll come love.

Are you fan of animal print?

You can check out the label Jorge at – http://www.jorgeclothing.com/

Stay tuned for this weeks outfits. Till then see what I’m up to on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fashiondiction/414740025283950
