Distressed Jeans for Day and Night

Surprise surprise, in case you haven't noticed it's the first time I wear jeans in my blog. Not that I don't wear jeans but after the creation of tights and jeggings I prefer to slip on black tights as much as possible and enjoy the feeling that I'm still in my couch even if I'm outside running errands. But that has to break for now as I jump on the distressed jeans bandwagon.

Irresistible Me

I think my physical trademark is my long straight hair, this has always been me since I can remember. I've changed colours, had highlights and sported a fringe every now and then but my hair has always been long and straight. So it is only normal that I get sick of it too and would like some waves but I want it temporarily and soft curls as much as possible. In my desire to sport waves I had my hair curled on my wedding day. You see, it had marked one of the most important events of my life. After that, I had to go to a hair salon or begged somebody to do the curling iron for me. Yea, I could have done it myself but I once burned my finger and vowed not to do it again :(

Cold Shoulder + Denim Skirt

Here's my take on the cold shoulder trend which I paired with a button down denim skirt. They're both from a known Aussie brands, Sabo Skirt and Sportsgirl respectively. Love the soft fabric of the top and it's uncreasable which is the exact opposite of the denim skirt.

High Tea for Mother's Day

Sometimes we just need to let go from our inhibitions and harsh confinement of ourselves. I can be talking about strict diet, extreme routines and rigorous exercise for which in this case I surely mean about eating regime. I think high tea is one of those really not needed kind of meals but is just so nice to indulge every now and then. And that’s what I exactly did one Saturday afternoon where I dragged my mum and my niece to a sugar and cream loaded food treat, layer upon and layer of it.

White Cut Out Detail

Ok, this is a different kind of LWD as this has a cut out detailing at the front and a massive one at the back. But I tell you, it is super comfortable and airy, naturally. This is ideal to wear in the beach, in the garden or in a party though it requires loads of confidence since there is no place to hide a normal bra. You have to be creative how to protect the front but the fabric is double lined so you can just let it go without wearing a support. As I mentioned tons of confidence is all it needs.

Brown Suede

There is no denying the morning chill and afternoon breeze have slowly crept in the Southern hemisphere. Pretty soon I will be wrapped in heavy coats and flowy trench. While there are still warm middays and taunting sunrays I shall be donning sleeveless lace-up tops and crochet wedges.

Ruffles and Romance

You can get lost following the Spring/Summer 2016 runway trends if you don't know where to shop. The trends consisting of Graphic Stripes, Pyjama/Boudoir, Cold Shoulder and Ruffles are housed at the hippest and most reliable online store - Farfetch. Its slogan '400 Boutiques, 1 Address' aptly describes this swish shop. No need to visit multiple sites to search for that most coveted frock nor create several accounts to complete your wishlist as Farfetch has it all. Not to mention the latest fashions of the major designers can be found in this store.

So excited to team up with Farfetch to showcase the Ruffles and Romance trend. Think of flamenco ruffles, cascading tiers and frilled capes, this trend is mesmerising us all with its Victorian influence. So here are my picks on the different dress styles all with ruffles and flares, and how they shine even more with the right shoes, bags and accessories.
Zimmermann blouse
Who wouldn't love Zimmermann? It only requires one glance and you know if that dress or bikini is Zimmermann. This Aussie label's take on ruffles is of another level, with sophisticated femininity and yet delicate original prints.

Self-Portrait dress
Etro's luxe couture can never be mistaken much less copied. This Italian fashion house is best known for its detailed paisley patterned design and the featured ruffle mini dress above just prove my point. 

And who hasn't heard of Self-Portrait? Well dressed celebrities and fashion bloggers are globe-trotting with these feminine and urban-inspired pieces. The intricate lace signatures with price that doesn't intimidate, nothing is stopping the rise of this fashion label.

Farfetch
Maxi dress has been and will remain a staple summer/spring dress. This Ferragamo maxi is an epitome of elegance, class and comfort. Need I say more? One look at it and you can get the picture.

I enjoyed browsing the website so much and curating the pieces that by the end of it all I was convinced it's all for me and I just have to add them into my cart and proceed to check-out. So I had to do a reality check to brush off my delusion :) But I hope you can relate my ohhhs and ahhhs looking at these ruffle trend sets. After all, they are beautiful statement pieces, bewitching and oh so sought after.

Black Silhouette

Unlike typical dinner dates with solitude and pure enjoyment with each other's company this one we had was chaperoned by our toddler. Due to lack of babysitter we're left of no choice but to tag him along. In fairness he made us last from entree to dessert although we had to shorten each course and just barely made it. I had to dress up for the night in black as opposed to our anniversary lunch (previous post) where I wore the whitest of white.

White Lace and Promises

You may wonder what is this about, how can a lace dress connect to promises? Such a strong word to incorporate with outfit and fashion :)

Square on Easter

It's Easter Sunday, I had an overdose of hot cross buns at breakfast. And my baby is still coping with hyperactivity from eating his chocolate bunnies.
