GUCCI x DECJUBA

 

GG 19

Nothing makes more of a statement than animal print can and I know that animal prints can be daring for some, but I say, you’ve got to channel your wild side sometimes…

I love bringing out that wild side by adding a bit of leopard or cheetah print to really make an outfit pop. I know that styling these daring prints can be intimidating and often we see it styled very OTT which is not only cringe-worthy but it can also make us afraid to try it ourselves! There are so many ways to incorporate a print into your outfit and investing in key pieces will really help you keep it simple.

I dare you to let go of those fears and try having some fun with animal prints! If you aren’t a fan of leopard print, you have many other safari inspired prints to choose from too like cheetah, tiger or zebra print just to name a few. Oh and if you really want to make a fashion statement you could play with animal printed faux fur! Big, cosy faux fur coats have become quite a staple for all the celebrity it-girls and if you would like to follow suit, check out how I styled a simple jeans and designer tee combo with one of the faux fur coats from Decjuba which is now on sale!!!

P.S the fit on these ASOS farleigh high waist slim mom jeans in washed black are amazing! They are super high waisted and make a mini gal like me look relatively taller than usual and I need all the help I can get in that department! Also the colour is washed so it’s a great casual jean that can also be dressed up with heels. If you love comfortable, reliable yet super affordable jeans then you must check out the ASOS collection.

THAT GUCCI MARMONT BELT

WIDE 14

Ahh, yes, that black and gold Gucci marmont belt that took the fashion world by storm! There was a time where I would scroll down my instagram feed and every fashionista I followed had managed to get their hands on it. I had put myself on 5 or 6 different wait-lists and after 10 months of impatiently waiting, I decided to take matter into my own hands. I went searching online and found one in Bulgaria! Out of all the places! You can only imagine my excitement when it finally arrived!

I love that the belt can be the perfect accessory to a really simple outfit. Believe me, I have worn it more times than I count with countless of different outfits! My favourite way to wear it to date, is with this gorgeous black micro pleat bodysuit and black high waisted wide leg pants! When I was trying the duo together I ultimately felt like something was missing. When I put the belt against the waist line of the pants, I smiled to myself and thought it was perfect. I felt, polished.

The black pants have become such a great staple for my wardrobe too! Perfect for work, running from meeting to meeting or even just to head out for a few glasses of wine with the girls! High waisted pants are fabulous. They are so flattering for any body shape and they will always make your legs look longer!

If you would like to see how I styled the entire outfit with the amazing Cooperst black matira wide leg pants and my favourite belt right now, continue reading!

THE PERFECT SUMMER VACAY DRESS

STTRIPED DRESS 5

Nothing beats a stunning, layered dress that you can pull out every summer, especially when you are planning to go on vacay! Whether your destination is to a tropical island somewhere or through a gorgeous European vineyard to drink yourself silly or even if you just want to check yourself out through the shop mirrors and windows, every woman needs to have a gorgeous dress like this one from Twosister’s The Label steamed and ready to wear at all times! This dress has three beautiful layers on both sleeves which makes every move that you make with your arms, whimsical. A waist tie to cinch in that tiny waist which can be worn at the back or in front. It also features a high-low hem so that you can show off those gorgeous pins and not to mention, the dress flows beautifully while you’re walking too!

I kept it really nice and simple when it came to styling this dress but you can absolutely dress it up a little more if you wish to! Because of all the stunning little details, this dress will pretty much do all the talking for you. Check out more photos of the dress below!

THE BLACK LBD

BLACK 8.jpg

Every woman needs at least one great little black dress in her wardrobe. I have about, twenty of them! Long sleeve, short sleeve and strapless… I have an abundance. Little black dresses are something that you can throw on and get ready in less than 10 minutes no matter the occasion! It’s a signature look for every woman, no matter what her true style may be.

Whether you’re going to a job interview or headed out for a first date, as long as you have a great LBD hanging in your wardrobe you won’t have to stress if your first choice didn’t look as good as it did in the fitting rooms! Or better yet, you may not even need to go shopping in the first place!

Below, I have styled my favourite little black dress right now from Peppermayo so make sure you scroll down and check out the photos.

WHITE FRILLS AND FLARES

RUFF 11

Oh how I love a good statement top! There is just something about a great, detailed top that can instantly dress up anything you decide to pair it with. I love teaming long sleeve statement tops with a skirt or even a pair of denim jeans… Whatever you choose, it’ll always come together nicely.

Frills and flares are my favourite type of detailing this month and you’ve probably seen it everywhere – it’s popular this season in knits and jumpers, and I’m seeing a lot of frilled detailing on the bottom of flared pants too.

When this sort of detailing on tops start from the elbow down,  it will flatter anybody’s arms. The reason for this is because it will draw attention to the details and your hands, not your upper arms, and every single time you move whether it be to brush your beautiful hair out of your face or to lean down and fix your shoes, people will be looking at the stunning sleeves. Sometimes if the frills start from the shoulder all the way down to the wrists, you’ll find that you lose a bit of shape and your arms can appear much larger than they are! And we don’t want that.

If you’re not a statement top kind of gal, try some high waisted pants that either really flare out or have slight frilling to them. They will make your pins look super long and have people thinking you’ve got legs for days!

THE GLAMAZON MICRO PLEAT SET

PLEAT 1

First of all, I want to introduce a beautiful label to you all called GLAMAZON THE LABEL If you haven’t already heard about them, they are an Australian owned label designed exclusively out of Perth, Western Australia! The label is exclusive to Live Clothing and they design beautiful, glamorous pieces that don’t hurt your wallet!

I have fallen in love with many pieces of theirs, however, this micro pleat bodysuit and short set have got to be my favourites from the label to date! The photos, as I’m sure, will show you exactly why. The micro pleat detailing is just divine and really glams up what would be a plain black outfit, the plunging neckline is just enough to show a bit of skin but not too much… Because we like to keep it classy! Then of course, being able to cover up your arms and show a little leg? Perfect for an evening out even if it’s a little cold outside.

It’s a Tuesday as I write this and it’s officially become an office day for me… Well, a home-office day. I know that may sound boring to some but for me, I could not be more excited! A day where I sit at my beautiful makeup vanity (because I prefer to sit here then at an actual computer desk!), go through photos from the weekend that my handsome other half takes for my blog and well, I plan out my posts! I make a coffee every morning, have a nice hot shower and put on a face mask in prep to get ready for a big day of writing. I definitely get distracted at times but Tuesdays have become my favourite day of the week because it’s the day I get the week organised. Of course I didn’t choose Monday… Because nobody likes Mondays!

OFF THE SHOULDER OBSESSION

white pants20

The off-the-shoulder look was always coming in and out of fashion and I feel as though it has now become a wardrobe staple rather than just a trend. I have collected so many off-the-shoulder tops, dresses, and even a few jackets over the years! I believe this stunning style shows off a little bit of skin in the classiest way possible!

It’s effortlessly chic when you style these shoulder-bearing tops with super high waisted pants because if you’re like me and you are not genetically blessed with super model pins, you’ll appreciate the higher waist because they can make you appear taller and like they say, just fake it till’ you make it, right!? I wore my stunning Delphine The Label top with these beautiful cream high waisted pants from Pretty Little Thing. However, being such a versatile style, you can tuck these styles of tops into a beautiful pleated skirt or team it with denim and ankle boots for a more casual-chic look.

The details in Delphine’s off-the-shoulder top is beautiful because it folds over a lot lower than most styles that are similar, which means you don’t find yourself pulling it up and adjusting so often. The fabric is thicker to keep you warmer this season and there’s two buttons on one arm that add a little detail, which dresses up what would be a very basic black top.

If you’re already all over this trend and you’ve got more off-the-shoulder tops than you can count… Then make sure you check out the rest of Delphine The Label’s ARTHROPODA A/W Collection. There are many more off-the-shoulder tops, jackets, dresses and many other beautiful styles to keep you looking stylish and warm at the same time.
