Who is Miroslava Duma?

The pint sized fashion powerhouse has rocketed straight to number one on my list of fashion muses. Former Harper's Bazaar Russia editor, Duma recently founded rockin' fashion and lifestyle website, Buro 24/7. As an established style icon with close links to Chanel, Bur­berry, Louis Vuitton, and Ralph Lauren, she is cultivating Russia's relatively new foray on the fashion scene.

The Quick Fix

It's Tuesday, exactly one week until payday. And with the pursestrings pulled tight, an online shopping exhibition to my favourite haunts proves to be bittersweet. With Manning Cartell and Zimmermann calling my name, I have no choice but to stifle their seductive voices to a whisper, until next payday.

No one ever said budgeting was easy...

In place of my favourite designers, a new, unfamiliar posse have captured my imagination. A guilt-free shopping experience. Offering the same high as a delivery from Shopbop. Here are some cheap but oh so cheerful purchases to keep you satisfied between paydays.


Mink Pink-  CAT SUNGLASSES - SHINY CRYSTAL TEA $39.95

Witchery - Coated snake print short $79.95 

Bardot - Lace bra-let $34.95
Cotton On - Tamzyn studd tote $39.95


Diva - $29.00 


Child of Wild  - KHOLKHAL GOLD ANKLET $39.00

Jesse's Girl (Copycat Post)

The cut-out heel on Alexander Wang's Anouck boot had me hook, line and sinker. But the $650 price tag meant left my tootsies out in the cold (and by that I mean trawling through Ebay to find pre-loved steel). Over the course of several months and countless hours spent Ebaying, a promotional email from Tony Bianco saw the end of my quest.

I present to you, JESSE, Tony Bianco's (perhaps not so original) take on the cut-out heel. And the subject of my latest 'Copycat' post. 
What's more, this style is now on sale for a bargain price of $120 AUD! The heal detail is available in a gold, polished black or silver.

What's in Storer

Ryan Storer's latest lookbook showcases what your ears will be wearing this party season.






Winter Warmers

I'll be the first to admit that I have not yet mastered the art of layering. And with winter descending upon my hometown the thought of venturing out into the cold is enough to give me a chill.

So here is a list of my favourite winter warmers.


Embellished beanies are a great source of colour to offset winter 2013's monotone takeover. This cameo beanie comes in an array of colours. It is made by label, Silver Spoon, known for warming the heads of superstars such as Rhianna and Rita Ora.

Don't let your dresses lament at the back of your wardrobe over winter, invest in a pair of statement tights, like these from House of Holland.

These ASOS super long, super soft gloves come at a super low price.

If a beanie just isn't your style splash out on one of these adorable hats by Gladys Tamez.

Why should my love at all thing mesh-panelled stop at dresses? These ASOS socks are too cute!

This spotty scarf is sure to add some cheer to your winter wardrobe.

Bejewelled

Credit where credit is due, Kristen Stewart dazzled at the "Snow White and the Huntsman" Aussie premiere. But it would be hard not to dazzle dressed head to toe in this heavily embellished Balmain ensemble.  


If you want to channel your inner Kristen (leave that sourpuss at home), Australia's own Shakuhachi have created a few heavily embellished items for maximum impact at a minimal price.  I found all of these items in the sale section of their e-shop. 

You too can find them at:

The ASOS Review: Don't Sweat It

**These can all be found on ASOS**

Here in Australia, sweatshirt is not a term often used (we would say 'jumper'), but I'll do anything for a good pun. So here are my picks for sweatshirt season. 



This little charmer went bonkers when Asos posted it on Instagram! I had to do some digging, but finally found it at a bargain price of only $63 AUD, by label, Lavish Alice.

This Zoe Karssen Bat Baseball Sweatshirt was on my radar for some time. It's great for layering or paired with high waisted jeans.



The 'Homies' Sweatshirt by label, Reason, signifies my foray into grunge territory this winter. Now all I need is a beanie to match!


Hope this one wets your appetite! 
You're looking at the soon to be iconic (and highly reproduced) original print by Mr Gugu & Miss Go. But this label is no one trick pony, other daring digital designs include popcorn covered sweatshirts. They sure have a penchant for food. 
Gives a new definition to sloppy joes' (yes, I could go on for days).


Yet to be convinced of the practicality of the short-sleeved-sweat, in saying that, I recently purchased one. Check out this design by Emma Cook.


Don't discount this sport sweat by Adidas. 


Have a look how uber cool fashion blogger, Camille from Camille Over the Rainbow, does Adidas.

Copycat

In this 'Copycat' post we channel the Louis Vuitton Spring/Summer 2013 collection. This means monochrome to the max. There is no greater contrast than a checkered black and white print, you will be sure to stand out in the Giddy Up Dress that you can find at Australia's Market HQ online shop.

Viktoria + Woods

When you purchase your Viktoria + Woods winter staple you may find that your piece was made right here in Aus. With a focus on well-made winter must haves, their Autumn '13 collection was where I finally found the perfect winter coat (the Atlantis Coat in black).
