City Camo

As I’ve mentioned time and time again, I’ll miss Adelaide’s picturesque city sidewalks. This month has been so busy, and I apologise for that! If you watched my recent Q&A, you may know that I’ve been busy prepping for an exam. Thankfully that’s all done, but now moving onto the next job – and that’s moving out.

I’ll be moving to Brisbane start of next month, so it’s going to be another busy month unfortunately. I also want to start my blog sale soon, so stay tuned for that. If I’m organised enough, I hope to have it up by tommorow/day after. So stay tuned everyone!

Meanwhile, here are some photos from when the weather was a little cooler, featuring one of my favourite bags – the ever so cute Alma BB in Damier ebene. Isn’t she the cutest! I tend to wear her more during spring/summer for some reason, and I love how she looks with neutral tones.

My blog posts are all over the place lately, and I’m so sorry about that. I’m trying to stick to my schedule of posting every Monday + Friday, but thats clearly gone out the window. Partly to blame is the fact that I’m currently trying to study for an upcoming exam, and whilst I have a few days of study leave I’m trying to cram up to 10 lectures a day… not really possible.

So I have been meaning to post this look for weekssss now,  and yes, thats exactly how far advanced I am with photos, and if you follow me on instagram you would have already seen sneak previews of this look.

I love how this look/shoot turned out, and I honestly had to painstakingly go through literally hundreds of photos! I’ve tried to narrow it as much as  I can, but forgive me if it’s still an overwhelming amount of photos of me! ahaha.

In this look I’m wearing one of my favourite layering pieces of all time – my shaggy/teddy/rug cream gillet or vest. I purchased this little number from H&M many moons ago, and I love layering it over pants, over skirts, dresses – and I ever layer it over a cardigan to turn it into a coat! In this outfit I’ve chosen to my (one of my many) pair of culottes from topshop, and to keep things simple have just worn a plain white shirt underneath. My reflective sunglasses from cotton on give this outfit a nice pop of interest and complements the gold accent from my LV bag nicely. Of course since everything was pretty neutral, I chose an LV monogram print bag as it would pop really nicely!

And on that note, I thought I would include a little review here about the Pochette Metis as some of my viewers were curious as to why I did not include it as part of my recommended 1st designer handbag.

The Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis

So I dont want to ramble on too much about this bag – if you want a separate review video on wear & tear and thoughts let me know – but as I’ve said some people where curious why I did not feature this on my recent video. The reason being folks is when I think about my first designer handbag (or atleast in my case), I think about a forever bag – in style, in function, in durability and in price point. I want it to be a all-rounder. Now I did not chose to include the Pochette Metis mainly because of all of the problems associated with this bag in the early stages, and also the trendy nature of the bag. I don’t see it as a classic piece just yet, and there have been enough problems brought up about this bag that I refrain from recommending it as a first designer bag. That isn’t to say that every PM has inherent construction problems, because if you look after your bag well, it shouldn’t! But if I had this bag as my first item and I ran into glazing problems or cracking problems right off the bat – I would just not be happy at all!

Now that isn’t to say I wouldn’t recommend this bag at all – because I do! Its a beautiful bag that offers a lot of functionality and versatility, and it’s easily one of my favourite bags from Louis Vuitton. But for reasons I mentioned above, I refrained from recommending it as a first designer piece – and I stress on the word first – because to me, that first bag shoulde the be-all and end-all… and I just don’t feel like this bag is quite there!

It’s been a busy few weeks.

And I have to apologise to my youtube subscribers out there for not being able to upload any videos lately. Not only am I rostered for a lot of shifts this month, I also have a friend’s wedding, job applications and as expected, an upcoming exam which I haven’t quite prepared for. Now I don’t want to fall off the the face of the online world again like I normally do when real life gets too real, so at the very least I’m trying to stay on schedule with my blog. And honestly, even this is proving to be quite testing.

I suppose my point is, I’m trying my best, so please bear with me.

Now despite my depressing intro, this is actually one of my favourite looks that we have shot. Partly because I’m wearing my HG bag, but because of the most amazing warehouse that we found completely by random. How good is the lighting! Honestly it’s the perfect place for a photoshoot. Its so open, its bright and the rustic walls give it such a cool look!

Now the outfit itself is simple, and I love the casual effortless vibe. It was still quite chilly the time we shot this so I’ve paired the look with a wool coatigan, but i think a black light blazer will make it more than appropriate for the hotter seasons. I’ve also worn with the looks my Vintage Chanel classic flap. I’ve been itching to style this bag more lately, because I love the way such an elegant piece can be paired down with casual style. Also I want to get into the habit of using it more, and not being afraid of wearing it. Because it’s vintage and made of lambskin, I do feel like it’s a little bit more delicate and I do find myself babying this bag slightly, which is the last thing I want to do. While I want to keep it looking as pretty as long as I can, I just want to use the bag, and let it age with me. Thats what will make this bag special.

How I Style: Denim Culottes

So these denim culottes have me obsessed.

This is one of my favourite shoots so far, and I just loveeee how these denim culottes from Mango look! I have only recently discovered the MANGO online website… and holy, I went a little cray. The reason I went on the website was because I was looking for the Chloe tie mule dupes that everyone on instagram have been going crazy for.. and then I discovered their denim. In particular these cute pair of denim culottes. And how amazing are they?? If you’re petite like myself, you can understand how frustrating it can often be to style culottes, so to have been able to find this on sale, not to mention in the exact size I need…. YES PLEASE!

For anyone interested in also getting a pair, look out for culottes with a straight slim leg. I know, “slim leg” is a bit of an oxymoron for culottes, but what I mean is that you often see the wide leg pants that get so wide it almost looks like a skirt. No. While 6 feet models can pull that off, if I did that I would literally look like a smurf. lol. Ofcourse it also doesn’t hurt to wear a gorgeous pair of stiletto mules (can you tell I’m in love with these wittner ones?).

the black ninja.

So when my boyfriend saw this photo, he said I looked like a black ninja from Tekken ready to start fighting. And I don’t blame him!

I’ve been absolutely loving the culottes/wide leg trend lately that is still going strong, and I know it’s quite hard to pull it off especially when you’re more on the petite side. Unfortunately we cant just slip into whatever fashion item is trending at the moment and call it a day. For example this outfit would have easily looked terrible had I not tucked the shirt in and worn heels. By wearing heels I’ve given myself some height needed for the culottes to give that height from the floor, and by tucking the shirt in, adds more to the illusion of longer legs. Of course, it doesn’t hurt to have an amazing accessory such as this YSL Tassel Clutch bag to go from casual to effortless chic 😉

These pants from Topshop have been such a great addition to my wardrobe lately. If you follow me on youtube, you would have seen me haul them quite a while ago.They can be easily dressed down with a causal shirt like this for weekend wear, or worn with a sharp shirt dress it can also be worn for work or for a dinner event!
