Rufflemania | The Missguided Ruffle Dress

Friday, 21 April 2017

If there’s one trend that I am heavily invested in - it has to be the Ruffles. Not only am I still on the pink hype, I’m also really into anything ruffle-related. As soon as I spotted this on ASOS I knew it had to be mine! I love the whole slouchy, feminine feel the dress gives; also it was on offer at 20% off so I couldn’t really pass up the opportunity! Who else gets way too happy when they see something they love suddenly on sale? I certainly do! #NoShame

Originally I planned to style this with my new grey Adidas Iniki trainers that my boyfriend kindly gifted to me, however the weather was a little bit too cold for me to pair it together, so I decided to pair it with my trusted black, over the knee, boots from EGO, instead. It definitely made my whole outfit look a lot more dressy for our day-date, but hey! It’s always nice to dress up for your significant other whether it be unintentionally; especially when you've been together nearly 7 years haha. Needless to say Jean-Michael approved 🙂.

I’ve been getting really into K-Pop recently again #NoShame and the obsession with Korean fashion is real. I feel like I've seen a lot of oversized dresses and ruffles on popular K-fashion sites in particular Stylenanda - which is another influence that helped spur my love of this dress. Of course my favourite k-pop idols are still Big Bang - there’s just something about their music and aesthetic that makes me so hyped! If you don't know what K-Pop is it essentially means Korean Pop, if you don’t know what i’m talking about honestly stop what you’re doing right now and go watch this video - Click Here - ! You can thank me later 😉

What are your thoughts on the Ruffles trend?

Pssst... Who is your favourite Big Bang member? 😉

The Kate Spade Backpack

Friday, 31 March 2017

This is an ode to the latest addition to my handbag collection. I have always been fond of the good old fashioned backpack and have owned many, from aztec patterns to your traditional brown - almost black EastPack backpack comment below if you had this when you were in school :)

 Thanks to my Jean-Michael, my dreams of owning a designer backpack finally came true! He kindly gifted this to me as part of my Christmas gifts... I mean, I did send him some cheeky suggestions accompanied with a few hints sprinkled here and there through Facebook messages and Instagram screenshots - that I was in need of a new back pack. My old faithful from Zara, has had its day and my wardrobe simply needed a better upgrade to last me through my 20s and hopefully 30s! He also knew that I was a big fan of Kate Spade so this was a well thought out pressie - that I of course love to bits!  

 We shot this a couple weeks back near St. James’ park after a cute Sunday-Sushi-afternoon-tea-date with a much needed walk after copious amounts of sushi and cake consumed. Nothing really beats an all black outfit, I mean it was the perfect accompaniment for these new sunnies also kindly gifted by my boyfriends little brother Jamesson. These are my very first Quay Australia sunnies and I am in love . First of all, just look at that Rose Gold goodness! And it’s also mirrored - which means lippie check. tick. 

Not only are backpacks crazy practical they just look cool and leave your hands free #winning. There are many options out there right now from the most recent Louis Vuitton's 'Palm Springs' blogger back pack fave to the conventional canvas ones. The options are endless and i'm still 100% diggin' it.

Trend Alert: Embroidery ❃ ❀ ✿ ❁ ✾

Thursday, 23 March 2017

My current go-to outfit has been this smock dress with fishnets, at times I try to jazz it up by adding knee high boots, but this time I defaulted to the ever popular fishnets & ankle boots combo. I'm still not completely over the whole embroidery trend, in fact I only now find myself really getting into it and incorporating it into my everyday outfits. 

I don't really see embroidery going out of trend anytime soon, in fact, I think we'll have quite the opposite. I expect a more enhanced and refined pieces of embroidery featuring in store and online. The do-it-yourself aesthetic really hits home to millennials like myself, I mean - what 90's kid didn't have a ball when they found they could actually iron on patches and of course, stitch their initials on to their garments? I for sure did! I vividly remember feeling so proud of myself after stitching my initials on a beloved Primark polo top (multicoloured pink and yellow toned) and feeling so made up with the thing, I then went on to showcase the masterpiece in a Duke Of Edinburgh meeting after school where it was greatly received by my peers.
I feel like even if it's something so basic like the clothes we wear, anything that reminds us even a fraction of our best childhood memories is 100% worth the buy. Which is why I think the embroidery trend will be that extra bit more popular and be sticking around for a wee while.

Thanks to Zaful who kindly not only sent me this dress but also sent me this amazing embroidered bag! A blogger taboo I succumbed to recently was use it for a family event and thus exposing it to the world before the lovely blogging community, crazy, i know! Anyways majority of my fam actually asked where my bag is from and where they could buy it. Which is always a nice compliment, anytime someone says 'where did you get that?' with such enthusiasm indeed puts a spring in my step as they say - haha. Of course I did say you'll have to see it on the blog ;) and guys, if you're reading this I can finally say it was from the lovely people over at Zaful.

Have you picked up any Embroidery pieces lately?
