Face of the Festival Launch

That time of the year is almost upon us - yes, that time of year when we pull out our most outlandish outfits and practice standing in heels for hours on end with a tonne of camera equipment.

I was privileged to be invited to attend the Face of the Adelaide Fashion Festival Launch, which was held in Tandanya - a treat in itself to admire the beautiful Indigenous artwork. Complimenting this was a showcase of gorgeous, flowing pieces that were mini artworks in themselves.

The atmostphere was one of excitement and anticipation as the showcase gave way to this year's Face - breathtaking Indigenous model Katarina Keeler in a garnet hued Jaimie Sortino gown.

I get the feeling that this year's AFF is gonna be a good one, so go check out their website for more info on this year's event schedule and tickets!

There are some days (usually weekends) where all I want to be is comfortable and lazy, but still stylish.

The vast majority of my wardrobe of made up of such pieces, that I can pull out (or pick up off the floor!) and make a decent outfit of with almost zero effort. I think the key to this kind of dressing is to buy quality pieces that are stylish and so comfortable that you can't help but not pull them on at any given chance.

For me, the formula I follow is a pair of leather pants (or a skirt with tights), ankle boots (always leather), a knitted top (wool blend, usually) and a big ol' coat. It's nothing new, really - my friend Crystal from Denchibitionist turned up wearing the same thing - but it works!

In Full Blume

Take one look at my jewellery collection, and you'll notice that; 1) it all fits into one tiny box; and 2) each piece could one day be passed on down the bloodline (like some of my pieces were once passed to me).

When I look to purchase a piece of jewellery, I want to be assured that its of the highest quality and is something I will love forever.

My newest jewellery crush is jewellery label Sarah and Sebastian, which focuses on luxurious handmade and bespoke pieces. I'm absolutely enamored with the delicate pieces (and cheeky models) from their new collection 'Blume', and can't resist sharing a few images of some my favourites.

Guardian Alien

A while ago when I was in Brisbane for business, I had the opportunity to visit the Gail Sorronda flagship store along James Street where I had the pleasure to meet the lovely Gail Reid, the designer of the label.

She helped me to pick out these two gorgeous pieces from her 'Guardian Alien' collection, which I have been enamored with ever since. My long time readers will know that I just can't pass up unique pieces, especially if they're a little futuristic - so I kinda feel like these two pieces were made just for me.

I love how this shoot turned out, and can't thank my friends Crystal from Denchibitionist and Mayanthi from Gracious Magazine enough for their assistance.

The Only Place You Can Shop For Yourself and Your Boyfriend

If you have visited my Instagram or Twitter accounts, chances are that you've seen me post about the super sexy lingerie label Agent Provocateur.

Lingerie shopping isn't always the most fun of tasks, but the Agent Provocateur experience is always something to look forward to. In my experience, I have always been extremely well looked after by friendly and highly trained staff, who have made fittings a fun and comfortable experience (not to mention that the fitting rooms look like something out of Versailles). It's also pretty much impossible to not feel completely amazing wearing Agent Provocateur, not only because of the delicate and opulent designs and quality - but because of how great the fit is.

Since I first discovered the brand about 5 years ago, I've amassed quite a collection to the point where I made the pilgrimage to their flagship store in London last year. So when I discovered that Adelaide was getting its very own Agent Provocateur concession as part of the David Jones Rundle Mall facelift, I was ecstatic! Not only that, but I was invited to the VIP launch where I got to check out the new store, along with new season stock and meet fellow Agents. 

A beautiful lingerie set is something I think all women should own, and there really is no better place for this but Agent Provocateur.

Couldn't help myself but treat myself to some new treasures :3

Spain Travel Diary

One does not really know the extent of their laziness until they fail to upload photos from an overseas trip that happened...wait for it...6 months ago.

I know this is meant to be a style blog and all, but somehow it turned out that all the photos with me in them during my trip to Spain were terribad. So, I will spare you the pain of monster Susan and instead share some of the shots I took while jaunting around Barcelona and Javea.

This trip marks the 4th time I have been to Javea - its always a special occasion to go there because its where my extended family lives!
