Suite Style

A stunning navy suite styling for todays feature from regnlee - I'm surprised I didn't see this before because it's fantastic! I love the navy seating combination with the blue tinted fireplace, they fit together seamlessly and the chimney breast is a great architectural addition to give the room more life. I love all of the decor pieces included, from the intricate styling of glass vases and candles on the mantlepiece to the offerings on the coffee table, everything looks great and fits in a nice style together =)

Bag It Up Challenge #180

This next bag in the challenge is a pretty new purchase for me actually but I'm loving it so far! This is the Small Straw Bag from Nelly and so far I haven't come up with any negatives about it^ This seems a great summer piece, and with the popularity of straw pieces I'm thinking it should last into the autumn season too before being packed up until next year^ I love the light colour with the black handles and I think those make it an easy piece to work it into a range of different styles, including this feminine floral printed frilly dress and I think it looks pretty good! The dress has enough detail for a whole look and I don't think it needs anything else - I'm pretty pleased with this one =)

Tied for fall

A perfect styling for the fall (autumn; I just liked the alliteration^) today from lulluplix wearing my favourite skirt style =) This skirt has perfect style and print and colour for autumn and I love the addition of the tied scarf around the waist. It gives the skirt a more voluminous illusion with the fitting yet standout colours. The belt is perfect to tie the pieces together. The white top is a great basic, and I like the slight loose fit of it. The heels are a simple touch and I love the small amount of summer added in the straw clutch. The earring and glasses are pretty, but the beret totally stands out as a great inclusion in the styling =D

I have so many great pieces picked out for Styled Outfits posts over the next few months and here's the next one - the Scallop Slit Skirt from Pretty 'N Love! We've not had it all too long but it's a trendy piece in the midi skirt style and with a cool quirky twist to the usual side split, I really like the scallop and it's easy to hide if you don't want to see it. The colour is bold and eye catching, great for a popping look if that's what you want. The black waist band is also quite a nice feature, although again it's one that can be hidden if you want.
I definitely tried to give completely different styles a go for this skirt. The first one is much more autumn winter and I love the block colour skirt with this sweater I designed for myself in StarDesign - the pink stripe coincidentally matches the skirt perfectly^ I do think all of the pieces I've used in this look are good matches. For my second style I attempted something a little dressed up and I really like the white with the pink, I also love my jacket combination, this is just the cutest! I liked the idea of this top with the print of the face on it with the skirt, but I should have resized it to get the whole face, however I still like the look of it, plus the features are in black which fits nicely with the little accessories I used and the waistband of the skirt. And the final look is a cool summer styling, this cami top was a perfect fit with the skirt, and I love the two pieces together. Black accessories were again easy to pick out, and simply adding another belt really brings attention to the narrowing of the waist. Super hard to pick a favourite, but it's definitely between the second and third looks - what do you guys think?! =D

Flower split

Floral split skirting still going down well with everyone, including in this styling coming to you from LadyBellax =) The over-knee makeshift matching floral boots look great, not too much at all - I wish I could pull the style off just as well! I wasn't a fan of this tee, but I think the shape of it suits the skirting really nicely and the logo makes it fitting in current trends - the oversized white bag also fits well and I like that there's a cap been used, the covering-the-eyes style is working nicely with the overall vibe of the look!

Bag It Up

I can't say I'm a natural when it comes to accessorising, so when I find something that really works for me, I use it over and over. 

This mixture of Antidote MCM Inspired Backpack supersized, layered with the shoulder slung Mr. Doublestrap Camo Backpack is my favourite combo at the moment. It's characterful, casual and goes with pretty much everything, including my favourite denim jacket of the moment. It takes a little jiggery-pokery, but I think the effect is worth fiddling with the resize glitch.

H O T B U Y S R E V I S I T E D | August 2016

And here is my second installment of Hotbuys Revisited, bringing you the August 2016 Hotbuys this time, which overall I much prefer to the 2015 choices! I also still own most of them, all of the clothing actually and a couple of the accessory pieces even though they're not hugely my style, they're definitely good pieces! I absolutely love the Matthew Williamson Inspired Dress and have worn it a few times, but for this post I decided to style the Dolce Gabbana Inspired Shorts and Yellow Singoalla Top - both super summery pieces, and actually pieces that I quite liked my stylings of the first time around =)
It's super easy to go with light pieces for both of these items especially with them both having yellow in them, so for me whites and creams are an easy match and I found them both easy to work with - particularly the top, it's definitely still a stylish piece with the off-shoulder design and cute frilled detailing. The one thing I wish was that I'd remembered to style these in the prime of summer rather than towards the end as they are key pieces for the season =D I think both of these items should be pretty easy to find in the Bazaar if you're interested too!

I meshed up

Minimal and femininity is exuded beautifully from Holi_C today, don't you guys agree?!?! This is a fantastic styling of the recent Hotbuys Layered Lace Tshirt Dress that we loved styling earlier this month. Some of us attempted a little layering with ours, but this look blows them out of the water I think, and I just love this so much =) The skirting adds a delicate touch with the floral lace and I think adding to the top half with extra sleeves was great^ The shoes are a good shimmering touch and the belt stands out nicely with a floral pattern. Plus a great neutral makeup look =D
