All Pink and Red!

Witchery has had an influx of clothing in my two favourite colours - hot pink and red! I am so excited!! I've been waiting for one of the fashion brands to release clothes in both those colours, at the same time! 

I grabbed a whole heap of items I liked and tried them all on and although some were really pretty pieces, they didn't sit right on my frame. In the end, I bought the two items I really wanted and hoped would fit - this hot pink off-the-shoulder ruffle cami and these red structured shorts.

I'm in love with this ruffle top! It is my favourite at the moment. The combination of the hot pink hue and frills scream femininity, and the cut-out shoulders make it cute yet sexy. Also, the material is of high quality, allowing you to glam it up for night-time wear in addition to wearing it throughout the day. This top is so versatile - you may pair it with so many colours: white, blue, black, nude and navy. Turquoise would look amazing with hot pink as will all shades of grey and green. It's also trans-seasonal, so you may wear it into autumn by throwing a jacket over it.

As for the tailored shorts, they are an A-line style which makes your legs appear slimmer. Also, they are slightly longer than other shorts available, so very classy. Red is a primary colour therefore, works well with so many other colours. I intend to pair the top and shorts together with nude strappy heels and bag.

Can't wait for a function so I can wear this outfit!

Ready for Spring - September 2017

Last Thursday, it was Vogue Fashion Night in Sydney and I managed to find myself some pretty pieces for Spring/Summer.

I've mentioned in previous posts how much I love Cue clothing because of the high quality and unique designs. What's more, it's an Australian brand and on the night of fashion it didn't disappoint!

First up, I bought this sexy and flirty georgette skirt. I've actually had my eye on this skirt since I saw it online about a month ago. However, I hadn't seen it at my local Cue store,  so hadn't tried it on. I was fortunate to find one in my size and absolutely fell in love with it once I put it on.

I love the fresh, vibrant colours, the lantern floral design and of course, the asymmetric tiers. Plus, it's fully lined! The fabric is so silky smooth and the skirt sits on your hips and falls softly down the legs... It really is very slimming. I am wearing the size 6. I suspect most are thinking the colour might be a little too bright and in between orange and red hence, wondering what colour top to wear it with,  but because there's black in the print, you can easily pair it with black. This way, the colours will stand out even more as well as create an edgy look with the contrast otherwise, white or nude also look great. I wore it with a black cold-shoulder top and black pumps and it looked ah-mazing!

Next, this fuchsia top, another Cue item, is stylish and so different. It's a cape style overlay with cut-out shoulders and the colour is a deep, rich pink which I feel matches all skin tones and hair colours. It also comes in black if you want to stick to the basics and it's currently on sale!

This sleeveless lace dress, also from Cue, is the bom-diggity and my favourite item that I purchased! It's the ultimate in femininity because of the lace and soft peach colour. It fits true to size - I'm wearing the size 6 and the cut is perfect; very slimming, contouring beautifully to your body with a gathered frill hem which tapers ever so slightly, so you get that hourglass shape. It is also fully lined and comes with the black and rose gold metal panel belt. You can pair it with black heels and bag or else, keep it fresh in the warmer months by pairing it with nude heels and accessories. 

I also couldn't resist this off-the-shoulder lace top from Seed - the bow at the front made me do it! hehe. It certainly adds a touch of class to the top and dresses it up. The top is actually a really comfortable fit thanks to the elasticised neckline and the lace, much like the Cue dress, gives it a delicate and feminine look and feel, especially with the exposed lace on the sleeves showing some skin. I love that it's a stark, white hue, nice and bright for Summer. This top will look great with jeans and will definitely elevate your look for both day and night. That's the best thing about it - it's versatility. It will look equally as good paired with a short skirt (think denim or leather) or shorts and sandals.

Finally, I bought this scarf, also from Seed. I just adore the lighter shades of these bold colours for Spring. Plus, it's animal print so no more needs to be said!
