And so ends another week of gorgeous, golden winter sun in Sydney. I’m loving gold statement items like these sunglasses and earrings to pop next to the lurex in this knit crop top. A casual and dressy outfit for a day and night out on a Friday.
One of the funnest outfits I’ve ever worn to fashion week! A bright yellow faux fur coat and my favourite part is that I got to wear jeans so I was totally in my element and they had stars on them! so that theme dragged on from the previous day where I wore stars on my blazer and blouse (it was unintentional but a happy accident nonetheless).
Rose gold backpacks have been popping up everywhere… so naturally I’m getting on board! The best one I’ve found is this one from Colette, it’s the perfect size, shape and holds everything you need. I’ve worn it with these awesome patched up jeans & slides for an off-duty look with my rose gold Colette aviators.
This is probably one of my favourite outfits I’ve ever put together. I love the fit and flare shape of the sleeves with the skirt and all the neutral colours giving highlight to the denim blue boots and the cute little embroidery on the side. I’m rarely boho but this is a nice little gateway to the style.
Last weekend I got the pleasure of jumping on board the Corroboree, a super yacht on Sydney’s Harbour to celebrate Toyota’s Feeling The Street Campaign. This campaign involves thousands of entrants all over the world who are performing on street corners and alleyways with a huge passion for music. I got the pleasure of meeting the winners of the competition and their joy for performing and making music was infectious.
What I love most is that the musicians were so global, they have come from India, Brazil, Italy, Chile and Colombia to create this band which worked so well together. Check out the youtube video and keep an eye out for the music video that was also filmed on the yacht! (Maybe you’ll be able to spot me!)
My blog is ‘Fashion and Sounds’ for a reason, I’ve always loved discovering new, young musical talent and with so many cultures included in this band I’m so honoured to be a part of the first steps of their journey and good luck to the team and thank you to Toyota for allowing me to be a part of this.
I love this look for a balmy night out or lunch out with friends. It’s so casual and chic and I love the injections of leather especially my new Love Moschino bag and my shiny new Acne boots I’ve been eyeing off for years… I finally bit the bullet and invested in them! You guys on instagram went mental over my flat lay so I thought I’d share my thoughts on it.
So is it worth the $750 price tag? My favourite type of black ankle boots are chelsea boots – these are boots with elastic on the sides (no zipper) so you can just slip on and off. Well, I’ve gone through about 10 pairs (no joke) of leather and non-leather black chelsea boots, a couple which are blatant rip-offs of these ones which I can easily say equate if not more to the price of the Acnes. All of the boots were same-same but different, the main difference being a variation in heel height. My perfect pair of chelsea boots have a higher heel of around 3 inches ideally however these only come in 1.5 inches.
I love pointed toes but these points are very very pointy… to the point where if you have a larger sized foot I can see them looking a little too big (I’m a size 7 so average on all accounts). So because they’re already almost flat (not a high heel) the boot looks longer than your foot, which may or may not be ideal.
The leather is gorgeous but as all leather does it has a tendency to crease and I’ve seen this on other instagrammer’s posts of these boots. You can tell when they’re doing a flat lay with boots which have been worn and boots that are fresh out of the box. The crease across the top where your foot bends can look annoying but it’s all a part of smooth leather and wearing leather in so unavoidable but it doesn’t always happen with my other leather boots which have a pebbled design on the leather. So if this bothers you I would recommend the textured leather option.
One good point in the design of the shoe is the heel tab, I have had heaps of chelsea boots where the heel tab is aesthetic only and you can’t actually get your finger in the loop to pull the boot on. In other instances I’ve had the tab completely rip off due to poor manufacturing. I’m sure this isn’t going to be the case in this circumstance.
So all in all I recommend this style if you prefer lower heels & don’t mind (really) pointed toes and I would get the textured leather if I could again as scuffs and creases won’t show up as easily.
Cami and jeans are I’d say a pretty basic look and it’s easy to achieve this look with the basics already in your wardrobe. The only way I’ve made this look different to almost all of my other cami/ jeans looks is by layering accessories. You’ll notice they’re not even chunky accessories but rather a lot of delicate pieces that make up a look that seems put together but messy at the same time (in a good way). Try experimenting with layering fine necklaces, midi rings and mixing metals & even adding some corded leather.
I love a good bodycon midi skirt, I’m talking LOVE. But sometimes you run the risk of looking too corporate or sexy when all you want to do is walk around the city and view the sites. In an effort to get out of jeans for once I paired this nude jersey midi skirt with a clean, fresh pair of leather Nikes to dress down the look and still look super FARSHUN. It works even if the top you’re wearing is figure hugging, but in this case I have a sweater on because it’s still winter here and cold af. Draping a long ass coat over the whole thing also really brings the ‘too sexy’ look down a notch but also raises the FARSHUN bar.
This hairstyle is also my ‘dirty hair’ hairstyle. So if you ever see me with a half up top knot you’ll know what’s up.
I’m in love with this monochrome look, the salt and pepper flecks in the blazer gives depth over the marle grey tee and busted knees of the denim. All of my accessories are black to keep it grunge and ~cool~
Hot Tip* to add depth to your monochrome outfits look for texture like marles, faux furs and knits. This also assists when your monochrome colours don’t perfectly match, it looks ‘intentional’ haha.
