MTV VMAs 2011

I was a little disappointed with turn out to the VMAs this year. I only spotted a good 8 people on the red carpet which is so incredibly measly compared to the other award shows. None the less the usual crowd made an appearance (ie Selena Gomez, Zoe Saldana, Rebecca Black???) and they didnt fail to impress. Black seemed to be the dominant colour choice this year, so i was happy to see that Maria Menounos was wearing jade green, and Beyonce was in bright red. Speaking of Beyonce.. Congratulations to her and hubby Jay-Z who confirmed that they are expecting. Cannot wait to see this beautiful baby.

Below are my favourite picks for the evening.

Top L- R: Rebecca Black, Zoe Saldana, Katie Holmes, Beyonce Knowles
Bottom L-R: Selena Gomez, Crystal Reed, Maria Manounos, Victoria Justice

Fashion Icon: Late Afternoon

When I look for inspiration, the best place for me is the web. Ofcourse you can check out Instyle and Vogue etc online but if you want to find some people with some serious fashion cred- go to blogs. My favourite of the moment is Liz of Late Afternoon. Her style is so effortless and chic. She is from San Francisco originally, having moved to LA of late and her style is very San Fran. Its trendy but wearable. I hate it when people wear things that are overtly fashion forward (heel-less heels anyone?). She, aslongside a couple of other bloggers, are who I turn to when I need inspiration or ideas. I wanted to add Liz to Fashion Icon because although she isnt an A-Lister or model, she is pretty well known within the blogging and fashion blogging realms. Below are some of favourite looks from her and how I would recreate them. Below that are some other looks from her amazing blog.

Bright Ideas

This year its all about bright colours and colour blocking. Its a pretty strong contrast to pastels from last summer (post here). I absolutely love this trend. Its bright, its happy, it screams summer!! I could grab any of the pieces from below and create a killer outfit. Yes, it may be a blinding outfit- but it would rock!
I am so keen to get out and buy a couple of bright, block coloured tops, like the purple one below, and some bright coloured skirts and shorts- and just rotate the colours. If you can muster up the courage to go crazy with this trend, perhaps stick with  bright accessories. Hot Pink heels (not patent pls!) or sandals (can be patent) or bright bags and clutches. Or even try a bright coloured dress with contrasting bright heels. I guarruntee that you will be as happy with trend as I know I am going to be :)

Kim Humphries

Yes, I will say it.. I am a dedicated Keeping Up With Kardashians fan. I watch all the episodes as well as all the other spins off (ie, Kim and Kourtney Take New York, Khloe&Lamar, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami). I was so excited this past week leading up to the wedding of Kim Kardashion and Kris Humphries. Too be honest I felt like a friend was getting married- is that sad? :)
Anyway the whole event was kept under wraps but when i woke up this morning, details and pictures had been leaked. I have yet to see anything (besides the unfortunate accidental viewing on the news this morning) so I wanted to do a quick post on wedding dress ideas that I would of picked for Kim on her big day. Ofcourse, as soon as Im done posting this, I will SCOUR the net for the real pictures :)

Style Statement

Moving time.......
I seriously dont know how I accumulated this much crap! It just sits in boxes, collecting dust. However, I find it hard to part with. Namely because they hold so many memories from my childhood and teenage years. Alot of it, are old diaries and I love to go through these every couple of years. They are hilarious to read through.

Last night I sat on the floor of my errily empty bedroom at my old place and read through my diary from when I was 13 years old. The amusement that it brought to my friend Kira was incredibly and to be honest, I had a good laugh too. I was so excited to be turning 13 and to be going to into highschool. My friends were my everything back then, and the best bit, was when I would refer to my little sister, it would always be followed by- my bestfriend/sister.

I was so set on being super close with my sisters when I was that age. I would force it to a point where it was embarrassing. I think alot of it came from seeing my Mum and her sisters, and how they would call eachother up weekly, sometimes daily, and giggle and gossip on the phone to each other. I wanted that!- never mind the fact that my little sisters were only 8 and 3 years old haha.

I can laugh at it now though, because my sisters and I are super close since growing up. I knew it would happen eventually- its just cute to see how much I strived to be friends with them back then.

Todays outfit- Thursday- No work tomorrow :)

Teen Choice Awards 2011

This past weekend, the Annual Teen Choice Awards were held in LA. Many awards were handed out this evening to such stars as Taylor Lautner, Glee cast, Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher. However, my main interest was in the clothes! Hello- this is a fashion blog!

Being summer in the US, the fashion was light, breezy and ofcourse wearable. I love these award ceremonies such as Teen Choice or MTV Awards, because the stars keep their looks fun and almost casual and they are totally easy to copy. Below are my picks for best dressed of the event.

Top L-R: Blake Lively, Selena Gomez, Rachel Bilson.
Bottom L-R: Zoe Saldana, Taylor Swift, Nina Dobrev

Hello Sweetie

This morning was amazing. I woke up to clear blue skies and warm weather- in August!!! Still winter and you get summer! I love Australia. The feeling of being able to spend the morning in shorts and a singlet was unbeatable, and alongside the cool spritz of styling spray in my hair this morning, if i had of closed my eyes i honestly could of felt like I was at the beach. Perfection.

Today is Friday, and I am stoked for the weekend. This weekend I move out of my old place and into my new apartment- Bliss! I decided long ago that this move was going to be stress free. I spread out the removalists (for the big furniture) and the cleaners with a week gap between, so that I could lazily grab loads of my things on the way home from work each day. This is going to be easy :). So thats my Saturday sorted, and Sunday is going to be spent with my Sister-in-law (to be) Brogen, looking for our outfits for her engagment part next weekend, and will also be spent at the beach, soaking up the rays. Bring it on!

With a great weekend ahead of me, and summer weather still glowing around me, I decided for a fresh spring look today, with pink and creams and casual relaxed fabrics. Nothing was going to ruin my day!

Grey Chiffon

Im thinking that its time that I change the layout and design of my blog. Its looking a little blan.. dont you think? - I shall make this my project for the next couple of days and see what I come with  :)
In the mean time, here is a post of my outfit for today. I finally decided to collect all my clothes from my old house and get hang them up in my new house. This presented me with quite a selection this morning, compared to my usual 10 pieces Ive rotating for the past month (tsk tsk). I also decided it was high time that I worked some heels again. Im kind of sick wearing flats, so I  threw on my heeled anke boots today, to throw a little *hot* into the look.

Obsessed - Katy Perry/ Hanson

Currently obbsessed with Katy Perrys Last Friday Night film clip. Besides that fact that its a really catchy song, the main reason for my obsession is the return of HANSON! If you havent spot them yet, they are the 3 dudes on the lawn playing instruments *swoon*.

Im also loving the fashion in the video. Hello.. the 90's rocked!
