flower bomb

when i came across this Talulah dress at the showroom full of Australian labels
i could barely contain my excitement.
its a blend of two hot trends: Florals and neons.

Dress: Talulah | Shoes: Forever 21 see them upclose HERE | Sunnies: Got at Brooklyn Flea Market
i thought I would go neon with the sunnies and lipstick as well. Lime Crime Makeup has some amazing opaque lip colors that are perfect for the season. an interesting lip color can instantly make an outfit more glam. p.s. these are my new favorite sunglasses.
have you experimented with different lip colors?

Dont forget to Enter my $500 Gift Card GIVEAWAY!

there is something about a cutoff tee that just says it all.
this is my new favorite understated top from Forever 21. It was
a real fashion STEELE at $11.
Since buying it I've worn it atleast 3 times including for this video interview for Wiseling Mag.
it goes with everything...cutoff shorts, a midi skirt and even rolled up boyfriend jeans.

Top: Forever 21 | Shorts: Thrifted from Goodwill | Shoes: Steven Madden Mercyy
Sunnies: Spitfire | Lipstick: MAC Red | Rings: Various check out my full collection HERE

sometimes you have to believe...not just in whatever religion or thought process you connect with but also in yourself.
I know that if I dont believe in myself no one else will.
I find that anytime I do what I really love...doors just continuously open.
I encourage all of you to follow your dreams, follow your heart and believe in yourself.

Now..I'm off my soap box and back to the fashion...these Spitfire sunnies added the perfect touch to this ensemble. I love how a pair of glasses can make you look different.
even...dare i say..smarter. lol. these sunnies have a clip on aspect too that I can turn them into sunglasses. Pretty cool huh.

read between the lines

another gorgeous Oscar The Third creation that I simply
couldn't keep my hands off of. its bohemian but chic.
i love the abstract lines on it and the neutral colors.
its seems like something Nicole Richie would wear. Speaking of which have you all been watching
Fashion Star? I know I have!

Dress: Oscar the Third | Shoes: Sole Society | Hat: Random Soho Vendor get similar HERE
Sunnies: Spitfire | Necklace: Vintage via Ebay
i thought these strappy sole society sandals would be perfect for this dress since it has the criss crossing lines. this dress is lightweight and super long. i felt like a goddess in it and for some reason like Lisa Bonet too. lol. this tiny pearl necklace has been on for about 2 weeks now. i put it on and hardly ever take it off. i dont know why. expect to see it in a lot of post!
oh so back to Fashion Star..who do you think will win?
i am LOVIN Kara!

Oscar The Third

while at the visiting the showroom last week i kept gravitating towards
Oscar the Third pieces. Oscar the Third is as Australian line by Jessian Polk.
It is also sold at one of my favorite online sites that I stalk
I saw this jumpsuit and instantly was in love. Perfect color too.

Jumpsuit: Oscar The Third | Shoes: Charles Jourdan | Bag: Goddess of Babylon
Lipstick: MAC Red
I got to take this amazing jumpsuit home for a few days and styled it with a Goddess of Babylon bag (another awesome australian designer). My Charles Jourdan pumps worked nicely with the zippered bottom of the jumpsuit. I think my collection of jumpsuits here and here will be growing.
I'm on the hunt for an all white jumpsuit now.
Stayed tuned for more outfits styled around Australian Designers!
