I have moved.......

It has been 9 months since I first started my blog. I have learned and improved a lot in this short period of time, but i still have a long way to go. To improve myself more I have made the move over to Wordpress.

Wild Love Style

I hope to see you over there.

Lace, Stripes and Black & White

Winter is creeping forward more and more everyday. The leaves have changed colour and are beginning to fall, the days are cool and the nights freezing and the skies are always threatening to rain. This is going to be my first winter in Melbourne and I am nervous but excited. Nervous since I hate the cold with a passion (I would take a 40 degree day over anything below 15 anytime) but excited because I get to try out new winter fashion that cannot not be  worn normally in Perth.
Over-sized coats, scarfs, layers upon layers, gum boots and an umbrella, this is my "need to get" list for this winter. 

A popular trend for this season is Monochrome and as you may have already read in my previous post (Monochromatic) I love it!
It is the most simple, interesting and chic way to dress. It can be as dressy or as casual as you want it and you can be "monochrome" in the most simplest way or in the most extravagant way. I have gone with a more simple/sporty luxe approach. My favourite detail in the whole outfit is the laced sleeve, it transformed the whole look into "modern chicness". The pants with the white stripes on the side give the slimming effect to my legs and wearing them higher on the waist has also made me look that little bit taller. All I need to do now is add that over-sized coat and a big chunky scarf and I am winter ready!

Market Day

Recently I visited the reputable Camberwell Sunday Markets. This is the first time that I have ever been to them and I left impressed. It was busy, had a lot to offer and the opportunity to discover hidden bargains. There was a mixture of stalls, you had people selling off their old belongings or local businesses giving us the opportunity to discover them. I came across the stall "Kitte Accoutrement" that was selling beautiful accessories. Their jewellery are unique, beautiful and designed to stand out. My bargain of the day was this dark blue faux leather skirt. It was $20 and the perfect fit, it was a lucky find and I cannot wait to go back this weekend to find some more affordable fashion.

What have you found at the markets recently?
