Pastels - 1

Finally, I’m back!  It’s been a busy few weeks – the ball that I was organising (next post!), finishing school for the term and a host of many other things!  My brother and I as well as two other friends have been working on a short film which we are doing for a competition.  We just finished it so I will have the link in my next post!

This outfit is extremely girly but very me.  Pastels and lace really are just the best and the pop of turquoise adds interest also.  I want you to take special notice of the necklace though.  I spotted this bunting statement piece a while back and finally bought it when it went on special.  I’m not really one for bold jewellery (though it is working it’s magic on me) but this one struck me as vintage and very cute.  So, here it is.

Just a simple outfit for the go, this combination was perfect for the autumn day that we shot this, however winter is now upon us and I’m wearing much warmer clothes than these pieces.  Oh, and the skirt!  I made it – a rectangle piece of cloth sewn together quickly with an elastic waistband.  Simple!  Give it a go 🙂

One last thing before you continue on to the pictures.  Have a look at this shop – http://www.forevernew.com.au/  Isn’t it gorgeous!  I went in with my friends the other day.  The walls are lined and racks filled with pastels, lace, beaded items, sparkles and everything vintage and stylish that you could imagine.  :-O  I like it, a lot.

That last picture is of me and one of my best friends, Ambley.  I’ve featured her on here before actually, and I might also be the one responsible for her gradual tendency towards blouses. 😉

My next post will be about that ball I’ve been mentioning.  Look forward to some lovely photos of glitz and glam.

Lace and chiffon - 1

First off, Rhesa, I love these photos!  That bed of orange on the ground is the perfect picture of autumn and the detail shots are so full of interest and colour.  Although the outfit itself is quite simple overall, the little patches of detail are more than enough to complete the outfit.  Matching a plain white t-shirt with this full on skirt created the perfect look and thus this outfit really didn’t take much brain power to put together.  The addition of some cool arm candy and a chunky-ish beaded necklace also added extra interest.

This feature skirt was made by my older sister, Lydia, after she saw some similar patchwork skirts selling at a market.  They were extremely pricey, so she decided to make one of her own.  (Please note that she did not steal this idea to sell, just to try out herself).  It was a lengthy process, but after gathering chiffon and lace and sewing them together she achieved this awesome, feminine, patchwork skirt!

Enjoy the photos.  See how you can nicely feature one statement piece by keeping the rest of the outfit relatively simple?

It’s now turned from autumn to winter over here, but we still have a couple more outfits from this shoot to share.  Hope you enjoy the up and coming ones.  It’s been so long, I can’t even remember what they are!  Surprises all around… even for me!
