NEW IN: Celine Mini Belt Bag

celine_belt_red_coat_city-20

I’ve done it again guys. Say hello to my new-to-me Celine belt bag!

So this bag needs no introduction, but if you havent seen my youtube video yet, this gorgeous Celine Belt Bag is the latest addition to my handbag family!

Now I did already go into significant dept about this bag when I unboxed it on my youtube channel, but I cant tell you how excited I am to have this in my grubby little hands. I’ve honestly been obssessing about it for a few months now, and had initially contemplated between the Balenciaga and a black version of this. Luckily I decided on the Balenciaga because I was able to find this dune colour later down the line!

As I said in my video, I had first seen this last year when I was lusting very heavily for the Celine Trapeze. It had almost got to the point where I was going to purchase a brand new Celine Trapeze at David Jones in a tricolor (cobalt blue, white & black). I decided to pass in the end, but that was the first time I also saw the Celine Belt bagI thought it looked okay but didnt even give it a second glance. Until I discovered Lizzy Hadfield and her gorgeous blog, and of course her minimalist style.

I kept seeing the Celine belt bag and boy, it grew on me very quickly and I was obsessed! Ever since I’ve been stalking that bag on online consignment stores because I do find that Celine unfortunately do not re-sell as well as other brands I’m usually a frequent buyer of.

I just love the lines, the structure, and shape and silhouette of this bag! I think its a great shoulder bag, and pairs so well with so many outfits! I’m stoked to have a lighter beige bag like this in my collection, because it’s actually not something I have a lot of.

First Impression?

So believe it or not, I’ve actually had this bag for a few weeks now, and I have useeeeed this bag! I took it with me to Sydney and it was great! It was the perfect companion for a weekend getaway in the city. I felt so city-chic because this is honestly the vibes the bag gives. The sleek minimalist style makes it look so premium and high fashion. I absolutely love it! I’m also so so so glad I got it in the drummed leather because to me it look so much more premium and expensive than the grained skin. The only drawback with wearing this bag was actually the shoulder strap – I tend to carry a lot of things with me, and when I’ve got a DSRL + 2 lenses + water bottle + makeup bag — the bag ends up weighing tonne! During these times I did worry sometimes when I wore it with the shoulder strap only that it would snap off and break! Luckily it didn’t… but it did play on my mind a lot!

Now I’m sure you’re curious about the closure? it wasn’t that bad! Honestly, I knew about the closure coming into this purchase so I was prepared, but all I did was lift a leg up to help it close and it was fine! Definitely not as bad as I thought anyways!

So what do you guys think of my new handbag purchase?

The Blogger Uniform

lv_speedy30_city-72 lv_speedy30_city-duo3

 

White shirt. Blue Jeans. Coffee in one hand, phone in the other. The culmination of which paints the picture of the quintessential blogger. I love this outfit and this shoot because it was so funny to take photos of myself looking like a successful blogger (of which we know is so far from the truth at this current moment). Regardless, the white shirt and jeans combo is any blogger/fashionista’s wardrobe staple. Not only is it comfy and effortless, but it can take you anywhere. Dress it up with heels and statement earrings, or dress it down with runners and no make up. You can also add a statement coat/accessory/outerwear and it feels like a whole different outfit. So any surprise that this combination screams blogger-uniform? It is the age-old favourite combination, and this is my online dedication to one of the best pairings in fashion history.

Before I go, lets just also take a minute to appreciate the beautiful backdrops that little Adelaide has to offer. I love strolling through the city and always finding new places to shoot and architecture to appreciate.

Soft Spring Tones

ysltassel_pinkcrates-36

Luckily for us, Spring in Adelaide has been a lovely, with some cool mornings and sunny afternoons. Which means, I can still wear some of my lighter spring jackets! This short trench you guys have seen me feature on my blog before, but it’s become one of my favourite layering pieces this spring. It’s easy, its light, and the shorter length means it’s a great for my petite frame. This is truly my favourite length for a coat.

In this outfit I chose to complement two soft blush tones together, and having the different textures and lengths make the two pieces perfect pairs for layering. I love how the wooly sweater juxtapositions the sheerness of the T-shirt beneath, but the similar tones make them blend effortlessly. I think that everything in this look complements each other, even down to the shoes and the pompom colours on my bag. I really like this look, and during days when I’m not 100% sure on what to wear, I pull this little number out and just change the accessories I pair with it!

If you’re ever stuck for layering pieces because you’re worried about clashing prints, or colours, or textures – you can always start with soft colours or pieces from a similar colour family. It makes the whole look more put together, and in my opinion tasteful!

#AW16 Staple Styling: The Duffle Coat Part 2

balenciaga-duffle-coat-mickey-6

Hello, hello! It’s been a while hasnt it? (Atleast for my blog!) I know this is more than 1 week too late, but I still wanted to complete my styling series so here is the part 2.

This look is quite a simple and casual one, just for those girls who aren’t interested in anything too fussy, and you just want a casual look thats comfy and warm. Here I’ve teamed up an everyday pair of ankle skinny jeans with my favourite comfy sweater. To make it a bit more interesting I’ve snuck a button up shirt underneath and wore some slingback loafers. I topped the look off with my oversized but very warm duffle coat, and believe me even though this was a wet windy day, I was snug as a bug in a rug!

Personal Update!

Now while I had you guys, just thought I would update you with some plans I have for this blog and youtube channel, and personal updates regarding my life

  1. I’m crazy frantic with my upcoming exam! I am currently undertaking a diploma and I have exams at the end of the year (1 month) Typical June fashion, I’ve left it a little bit late, and I now have a few 100 lectures I’ve got to go through in the next 1 month – needless to say I’m going be busy!
  2. I’m doing Vlogtober! If you follow me on my youtube channel you may have seen that I’m doing vlogtober. Unfortunately due to my busy schedule this month the uploads have been a little bit late, but believe me I’m frantically trying to edit the videos and upload any spare minute I have!
  3. I got a haircut! You would know this if you follow my snapchat or instagram, but I’ve recently got myself a hair cut including bangs! Now this does mean that it dates all my videos and photos, but I have decided to still continue uploading them to my blog because 1) they’re awesome pictures and 2) does it really matter? So this is just a forewarning that my photos on the blog will not feature my new hair, but I hope it doesn’t bother you guys too much, and you still enjoy them none the less!

So thats it for now — I’ll be back with my regularly scheduled blog posts commencing tuesday so stay tuned! xoxo

#AW16 Staple Styling: The Duffle Coat (Part 1)

lv_speedy_30_damierebene_layerdress-7

So the duffle coat has been a new discovery this autumn/winter, but honestly I cant believe it took me this long! It is definitely a classic coat silhouette, and if you dont have one yet in your collection for this autumn/winter… GET IT! It’s such an easy carefree piece of outerwear, and it will go such a long way!

This was 1001% inspired by the korean drama shows I was watching several months ago. I saw how it was style it a skirt/dress and I was in love! I have seen it in black/navy/red, but decided that grey would be a great neutral colour. I did get a size larger for an oversized fit, because it just looks better when it’s slightly larger especially when worn with dresses/skirts.This particular piece was from Myers, but they are so readily available anywhere so definitely check it out!

It might not be the most striking jacket/coat, but it was truthfully the one I reached for the most this autumn/winter because not only was it warm, it was so cozy and comfy. And absolute staple in anybody’s autumn/winter wardrobe!
