Trend: Leather

Its hard to post sometimes on trends because living in Australia we are usually going into the opposite season to the rest of the world. We are about to head into Spring/Summer, while everyone else are heading into Fall/Winter. However I am happy to say that one of the winter trends from this past season is very easy to translate  for summer. This trend is leather. Leather is showing up everywhere and can be seen in tops, dress and pants, as well as the usual jackets and accessories. I lean more towards looser fit pieces in leather, so as it doesn't drift towards looking too... well you know where I am going with that.
The below items are on my radar and work both for winter and summer!! Pair with jackets and boots for winter or with sandals and sun hats for summer!

Fashion Icon: Olivia Palermo

I have loved Olivia since I watched her on The City back a few years ago. I was (still am) a big fan of The Hills (see my post of The Hills fashion here) and then i followed Whitney Port over to The City when she moved to the New York.

Her rival on the show was Olivia Palermo, and although I had some distaste towards her at first (I was team Whitney), her fashion was not to be beaten and soon fell in love with her style- (and then realised the show was scripted and she wasn't actually mean - haha late bloomer)

She mixes eclectic pieces with classic shapes and items. She is timeless and can make anything look fashionable. I follow her blog and love everything that she posts up. I only wish that i could style an outfit like her!!

Below are some of my favourite outfits by New York's best:

August Lusting 2014

I have been so focused on wedding ANYTHING for the last 6 months so when I went through some fashion stores and fashion sites, I found some great new items of clothing and accessories that I am lusting after.

I hope this give you your fashion fix for the next hour or so.....

lusting August 2014

I love these lace up nude heels. They would go with everything and the platform sole would keep them comfortable for the ankles. 
Cut outs are so big right now and strategically placed cut outs are the most flattering. These cut outs will show off the smallest part of your waist. 
This next item is technically a pair of shorts, and I LOVE the idea of the skirt over the top. Save alot of red faces when walking down the windy streets in the city. 
Plaid shirts are all the rage right now and I love any plaid with a touch of red in it. Don't know why this is the case, but I just do. 
Soft draped outwear is a favourite of mine. I like how loser jackets don't leave me looking too boxy and large.. as a curvy girls this is important to me. 
The next skirt is very flattering and mixes the still very trendy asymmetric skirt, summery print and flattering shape all into one. WINNING!
The next dress, I dont know, I just love the bright colour of the dress. Perfect for the day with a looser vest and sandals, or at night time with a blazer and heels. 
The white sandals are perfect for spring and summer. They look fresh and would go with anything. 
And lastly the vest. Such a big trend and they go with everything and draw any look together. I love black as I tend to drift towards monochromatic ensembles but black will go with my random pops of colour too.

Award Show: MTV Video Music Awards 2014

The VMA's happened this past weekend in California and of course, like any other VMA show there was schandals, wardrobe malfunctions and there was Miley Cyrus. Surprisingly Miley didnt make us cringe this year after last years "twerk" show, and the malfunction occurred on none other than Nicki Minaj. Beyonce did a performance that no one will forget and the most importantly the red carpet was swarmed with both horrendous and gorgeous outfits within metres of eachother.

I wont mention those outfits that I didnt understand (*cough * Taylor!) and move right onto the ones that I really liked.

I really like what Kim Kardashian has been wearing this award season. This dress by Balmain is amazing, with the print and the cut. I also love Kims hair and makeup. She looks so fresh.

Mileys outfit by Alexandre Vauthier Couture is so edgy and its nice change from her usual leotard that she wears. She looks to softening up a little of late.

Julianne Hough, be it the name or just that she is damn cool, but I love her. Navy is such a flattering colour especially on blondes and this dress by Emilio Pucci is no exception.

Beyonce stole the night, not only with her epic performance but because she nailed her red carpet look. This dress by Nicolas Jebran is stunning and made her look like the (music) royalty.

Michelle Williams was not one to outshone by her former Destinys Child member. She looked amazing her in her dress by Roberto Cavalli. Maybe it's my love for monochromatic prints, but I want this dress!

Lastly, Miss Sparks. The love of Mr Derulo's life. Is this is sign of things to come? Wearing all white? Man I hope so, because if she can look this amazing on the red carpet in this Simply Intricate FM dress, then she will sure to sparkle in THE white dress when she walks down the other aisle :)

Stay tuned for a red carpet wrap up of the 2014 Emmy Awards.

Teen Choice Awards 2014

I know I am little late with Teen Choice awards but I felt like I need to have a quick say on what I loved about the fashion this year.
So this my extremely late wrap up of the red carpet.
To be honest only 3 people caught my attention this year and for very different reasons. 
First being Kim Kardashian in Balmain. Im not usually a big fan of what she wears but this outfit I love. The black and white high waisted skirt with the leather crop top. This is one time that I love the crop top look on a curvy girls and thank you very much Kim for leading the way for us girls who don't have a size 0 waist. 
Next is Shay Mitchell from Pretty Little Liars. Her Misha Collection outfit is just the epitome of summer, the white lace skirt and top, the side braid and even the dark lip feels summery- strangely. Im just loving her in this!
Lastly, my favourite girl of the moment, Nina Dobrev. I love her short and top combo by Vionnet, and again I love the side braid. Now that I have cut my hair I cant really create this hairstyle so I envy anyone that can do it. I also love her makeup. Her eyes are absolutely popping- and do I even need to mention her kicking figure!!

I'm back :)

Yes I am back!!

I took a rather long break from blogging to focus on some personal things.. namely my wedding!!
I got married last month and it was the best day of my life. I loved every minute of planning the day and the day went off without a hitch.

Jeremy and I have been loving every minute of being married, our date nights, our home cooked dinners, and chilling on the couch in our own place. Its great and we couldn't be happier. I have some posted some wedding pictures below, as well some shots from our honeymoon in Tasmania and Melbourne.

I will back posting more often, so enjoy!
