I am having dreams about these 'Skulltini' flats by Jeffrey Campbell. Unfortunately they are out of my size, but I have been keeping a keen eye on my email hoping they come back into stock. Even if little skulls adorning this on-trend styled shoe isn't your thing, jumping onto will be well worth your time.

Classico Pant

It's been a busy few weeks for this blogging pair, what with Uni exams and a couple of friends birthdays. But this hasn't limited our time spent trawling through online shops and Ebay to find some perfect holiday outfits. This Bec and Bridge 'Classico Pant' arrived on my doorstep just a few days ago and would you believe it I have already worn them twice? (I'm a big advocate of 'cost per wear'). I was quick to rush them to the tailors (the perils of being vertically challenged) and pleased that they are now the perfect length. The printed polka dot shirt was bought through The Iconic and is the label Elliatt. And the shoes are, once again, Tony Bianco. For a more casual look I think I'll team the wide leg pant with a cotton striped t-shirt and a pair of wedged shoes.

New Kicks

Faced with a 40+ degree day this week, coupled with the fact that my former sandals didn't survive my holiday, I thought it was time to invest in a new pair. My last ones were nude coloured, picked up for $10 (slightly faulty) at a Globalize sale years ago. Despite this they still attracted compliments and did not fail me once. So where to for my newies? I entrusted Tony Bianco to provide the goods and once again I was not disappointed. These black sandals are proving to be comfy. And the black pony hair with silver buckles give them a bit of an edge <3

Tee's Please

Designer tshirt for $39? I was as shocked as you are. Lara Bingle and Ebay Fashion have teamed up and a number of well known designers are on board to create an affordable and above all fashionable tshirt line. This is Bec and Bridge's interpretation and my personal favourite. I love the bold print, which teamed with my Zara leather skirt, gives an edgy look. My old faithful sportsgirl watch also makes an appearance. 
Be sure to check out the other designs, but be quick, they're limited editions!

Seeing Double

Here's my co-blogger looking marvellous in Sass and Bide's Martina dress. She recently wore it for a 21st birthday party and wouldn't you know it, another guest was wearing the same dress! **Cue shocked gasps** The other guest was wearing the black and white version and even though this print is a stand out, they managed to look very different. The other guest wore hers belted at the waist and with big statement jewellery. While this little blogger kept it simple, adorning it with the rose gold Tony Bianco's you see here. 

PS. A little birdy informs me this stunning no. is now on sale at The Iconic, with free shipping and super speedy delivery, why wouldn't you? <3

Roses are Maroon, Violets are Blue

This dress is by the aptly named label, LOVER. Personally I couldn't dream up a more romantic dress. The beautiful lace is even more dramatic in this maroon hue and contrasts brilliantly against the skin coloured slip beneath. Paired with rose gold Tony Bianco's, we at The Guise have fallen madly in love with this little number.

From where I would rather be

These are trying times for University students around the country as most of us go into hiding, trying desperately to prepare for exams. When all the chocolate in the house has been eaten and all old embarrassing Myspace profiles have been stalked; out come the holiday photos to help me procrastinate. This was one of my favourite days, sailing the Greek Islands. And in what better way to do it than in my Fairground (by Alice Mccall) cropped top. I had no idea just how 'cropped' this top was when I purchased it online. But I figured aboard a sailing boat in the blistering Greek sunlight was the perfect occasion to bear a little more skin than usual.

Taste of what's to Come...

So much to come in the next few weeks! As summer and party seasons begins we have a heap of dresses to get you all excited including Sass Bide, Lover and this little gem by the amazing Italian label, PINKO. Watch this space :)

A Bit of Shade... And a Big Hello!

You've probably noticed that my fellow blogger has put in all the hard yards on The Guise... So I've finally got my butt into gear and decided to share one of my most recent purchases! I came across (and fell in love with) this cap whilst lost in the world of Instagram. The cute floral pattern had me sold, literally. Sunday Somewhere have 3 styles to choose from and with free shipping, they make it very hard to say no! Check them out here.

Shrimp, anyone?

With racing spirit about to be in full bloom as Melbourne's Spring Racing Carnival kicks into gear my money is on the 'fashions on the field' to provide a few surprises. Though it seems no hemline or amount of bare skin would cause a stir these days, this was certainly not the case in the 1960's where supermodel Jean Shrimpton caused a stir in her white mini dress. More shocking it is now to come across an elegant midi-dress at most Australian race meets, this is my somewhat classy interpretation of Jean's iconic Australian moment in fashion.

Bird Crazy

What a fitting first outfit post this is! In celebration of our new Twitter account this Sass and Bide dress seemed the obvious first choice. The bright colours against the white backdrop of the dress bring out my poor excuse of a European summer tan. And the length at the back of the dress means that it can double as something to wear to more formal occasions. For all of you nature lovers, it is also National Bird Week from the 22-28 of October. Quite frankly birds scare me a little, so I think this will be the only bird watching I will participate in. Enjoy and be sure to follow us on Twitter. 
A big thank you to our beautiful photographer and Ms Lara Bingle who boosted our views by retweeting us during the week. 

Race Day

This morning I flicked open to the fashion pages of my local newspaper and saw the beautiful Miss Lara Bingle donning a full length, black pantsuit by Camilla and Marc at this weekend's Caulfield Cup. Even though I liked the pops of colour (check out Samantha Harris in a flattering canary yellow number), I liked Lara's smart and sophisticated look. Funnily enough when my fellow blogger and I attended the Races earlier this year, I too went for a black pantsuit, mine by Maurie and Eve. I picked it up from a boutique sale for a crazy $20! What do you think?

Beautiful weather, no more

Just stopping by with a quick outfit post. After days of sunshine and beautiful weather, the day I finish work early is the day that the sun decides to go into hiding.. typical! But I've decided to embrace it and go with an edgier look for tonight. x

Top, Zara. Boots, Steve Madden. Clutch, Kookai. Leather bottoms, boutique purchase.
