I find it so interesting how light exposure and lens flares can completely a photograph, even when you're in the same location wearing the same clothing.

Today's outfit features a maxi dress with a criss cross neck, peephole front and side skirt split. It's definitely been a while since I've updated my collection of LBDs and this dress made me realise how much I miss them! Black has always been a closet staple for me, its the most versatile and safe colour so even with the sexy splits, I still felt safe in a wow factor dress.

Make sure you check out Lace & Whiskey for more must haves for Spring around the corner!

If you're anything like me, you'll know that the struggles of a vertically challenged girl in love with midi dresses is real. I would pick a midi dress over a mini dress any day but the only thing that stops me is the length of the dress vs the length of my body.

Different girls wear their midis in different ways, I like wearing mine just pass the knees but I've seen midi dresses look flawless on girls that prefer it just before the knee starts. I've purchased a lot of midis online and much to my dismay... they cut off only a palm's length away from my ankle.. I'm telling you, the struggle is real!! So when I saw this Puzzled Primrose Strapless Dress for the first time, I prepared myself for disappointment...when I tried the dress on, it was instant love heart eyes!

White On White

White on white is known to be a photoworthy combo but is it really practical? Well my general rule is, as long as the top is thick enough to be rain proof and the pants are tailored and can be easily bleached at times of emergency, then you're fairly safe.

As for accessories, I generally prefer silver to be paired with blacks and greys and save my golds and rose golds for the white and other neutral ensembles. Today I slipped on my neverfail gold bangles by The Peach Box which seems to be going with everything lately.

In other news, I'm so excited to see my tram ads finally installed! If you're in the Melbourne CBD any time within the next 3 months, keep an eye out for my artwork on the trams of Melbourne for COOPER ST and Myer ;) definitely something I can tick off my bucket list!!

For the next week or two I do apologise for the gloomy pics. I'm doing my best to keep myself from missing in action by taking cover in warehouses and spots under renovation so there will be a slight change of scenery until the heavy clouds clear!

A few posts ago I mentioned that I'm becoming a little bit more accustomed to pants, particularly cigarette pants with slim fit cuts. Due to my height (or lack thereof) I think slim fit pants and heels are the perfect trick to looking leaner and longer. I've been lucky enough this week to find an all in one slim fit jumpsuit by Three of Something with detachable straps. Its the perfect jumpsuit under a winter coat because of the sweetheart neckline and cut out detail so that your body shape doesn't get lost under all the layers.

On top of my love for slim cut legs, I'm in love with my gold accessories from The Peach Box! Since they're a bit hard to spot in my full length posts, here is one of many close ups to come to show you the gorgeous detail on the Twisted Nail Bangle and the Urban Hardware Bangle.

The New Way To Shop

Monday, August 11, 2014

 photo alphatise2_zps537c6414.jpg
When people ask me what my online shopping tips are, I tell them:
1. Look for online discount codes and deals on coupon websites
2. Always look for the cheapest prices via shopping comparison websites
3. Read reviews about the website you’re planning to purchase from before following through to make sure its secure and reliable
4. Always keep a copy of your receipt (and if you don’t receive one then make sure you ask for it!)

 The great thing about this system is that I usually find coveted items for a great price! But on the downside, I spend copious amount of hours (sometimes even days!) clicking through website after website for the item that I want at the price I’m willing to pay which is more often than not, a lot less than the retail price. Which got me thinking… there had to be an easier way.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to your new dream shopping app – Alphatise. Alphatise pretty much encompasses my online shopping tips 1 through to 4 in one app.

HOW TO SHOP: To see a video version of how the App works

Alphatise - Have a say in what you pay! from Alphatise on Vimeo.
1. Download the Alphatise App for either your Android or Apple device from Then create an account.

2. Search for the item you’re after
 photo edit2_zps2d11f6b8.jpg

3. Once you’ve found the item, make a “wish” by telling the seller how much you’re willing to pay.
 photo edit3_zps8e51d4e5.jpg 4. If the seller can fulfill your wish you’ll be given an offer which you can accept or send to a friend that may be interested.

You can also view what your social network has been searching and wishing for or if you’re a more private person then you can browse privately and in the comfort of your own home.

 GET DISCOUNTS: If you’re planning to splurge at your favourite store you can also browse for the store using the Alphatise App bid on the discount you’d like to wish for from the retailer and wait for an offer (e.g 20% off ZARA). So instead of scrolling through coupon websites and taking up offers with brands that you’re not really familiar with or you don’t really love, make an offer directly with the labels you love so you can feel content about the huge savings you’ve made on your new obsessions! 

WHY I’D RECOMMEND ALPHATISE: So after first impressions and trying this App, here are reasons why I’d recommend Alphatise: 
 - It’s the first of its kind. This App gives the shopper the power of bargaining rather than the retailer which is a huge advantage and a huge thumbs up from me!
- Unlike many discount or auction sites, the products found on here are labels you know and love from reputable retailers so you know you’re in safe hands and that the products are authentic.
- When you and your friends create an Alphatise account you can share offers with your friends, view their wishlists or take advantage of their deals so you can enjoy the social experience together!
- The App is FREE! You’ve got nothing to lose!

 So download Alphatise and follow them on Facebook, Instagram (@alphatiseaustralia) and Twitter (@alphatise) and share your experiences below, I’d love to hear them :)


Falling Fast

Hey guys! I'm here yet again with another twin set by St Frock. For those of you who thought that the print on print from the last outfit was a bit too out there, I'd suggest starting with the basics - white on white. White on white is a surefire combo and it never disappoints (if you can avoid food stains that is). It also makes it a lot easier to mix and match and the plus side of buying it online is that you know your garment is going to be brand new and free of dreaded makeup stains from in-store customers trying it on - one of my biggest pet peeves when buying white garments!!

On a different note, I really miss the days when I had more time to interact with my visitors. I used to have a Formspring account which allowed anybody to ask me a question (anonymously or not) and I would go through as much as I could before hopping into bed each night. I get questions sent to my inbox about topics ranging from bags and clothes to work and study and since I always get asked similar questions, I'm once again, I'm back on Formspring (now known as Spring) so click here to ask away!

I'll do my best to get through all your questions but please try to keep all questions G rated as any inappropriate questions or things promoting hate won't be answered.

Take Me Away

West Coast Twin Set by St Frock // Photos by Titolicious

This West Coast Twin Set by St Frock + this weekend's sunshine = my pretend vacation. I've just caught a bad case of the travel bug and I'm itching to go on a tropical vacation but its a crucial time at work so with my schedule jam packed I'll just have to wait.

For those of you who don't know, I've recently started a new job working in fashion which is just the learning curve I've been waiting for! It was hard to say goodbye to friends that became almost like my second family at my previous job but I figured it was now or never for me to pursue my real passion.

Last week I had the amazing opportunity to shoot with the ridiculously gorgeous and talented Alexandra Agoston the morning after she walked the David Jones catwalk and I can't wait to share more with you! I'll be able to give you a sneak peek closer to October and share exciting news :)

Until then, have an amazing week!!
