Indulge Clothing Blogger Competition: Round 3

Whoopee! I’ve made it into round 3!! A massive thank you to everyone who voted for me again this week, you guys are amazing, I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you xoxo

This week I was sent a gorgeous sheer blouse by FATE Clothing…it retails for $79.95. On the price tag is written “colour: gold”…it’s more of a bronze-gold, I love it 😀 At first I wasn’t too sure of it but once I tried it on and started pairing it with items from my wardrobe I quickly fell in love.

It is quite a versatile top. You could style it with a pair of black skinny jeans and vans for a more grunge look….or with a pair of black shorts and heels (like I did) for a glamorous look…another way of wearing this top is unbuttoned, over a dress and belted at the waist. See how versatile it is! 

Great colours to put with a gold top are black, purple and a bright turquoise blue (like the ring I am wearing)….the black jeans I was sent in Round 1 have a green/gold sheen and looked pretty cool paired with the blouse. I created a purple/black/gold smoky eye to go with this outfit…rockin’! 🙂




What I’m Wearing:
Sheer Blouse by FATE – Indulge Clothing.
Shorts: Dotti
Shoes: Betts Shoe Store
Bag: Nine West (Borrowed from Belinda)

Indulge Clothing Blogger Competition: Round 2

Yippee! So I made it through to round 2 of the blogger competition!! Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me, I really appreciate it xoxo…I need you all to do the same for me this weekend. Please keep me in the comp 😀

This week I was sent a stunning floral skirt by Blossom. It retails for $69. 

I was a little worried when I pulled out the skirt from the packaging on Wednesday, I am not a skirt girl (I live in dresses pretty much!) so I have hardly any tops ha ha. Luckily  I had a cream blouse that worked in nicely with the bright pinks,blues,yellow, cream and purple in this skirt. I raided Belinda’s jewellery stash and found this beautiful green necklace which tied in perfectly with the green and cream in the skirt and blouse.

You could “winterise” this skirt by adding dark brown tights and ankle boots with a skivvy that fits in with the colours of the skirt. Avoid turtle neck skivvy’s though (I already tried it hehe) as the high neck just doesn’t look great with the skirt. Knee high socks look amazing with this skirt as we discovered 🙂

A big thank you to my wonderful aunt Belinda for again taking photos for me xoxo We just took these photos tonight up in Kings Park! I was more than a little cold 😛 But it was worth it, I love how the colours in the skirt pop against the night scene.

 


What I’m wearing:
Blouse – Dotti
Skirt – Blossom from Indulge Clothing. You can also visit one of their three stores in WA:

Mt Lawley, Shop 3/591 Beaufort St
Esperance, Shop 2/71 Dempster St and
Kalamunda, 13 Canning Road
Socks – Dotti (Photographers own) 

Shoes – Betts Shoe Store
Blazer – Photographers own (A yellow blazer is a great way to bring out the yellows in the skirt. Also great for keeping you warm on those chilly winter and spring days!)
Necklace – Photographers own.

Indulge Clothing Blogger Competition: Round 1

Hey gorgeous!

I have some super exciting news today!!

Tracey from Indulge Clothing has started up a blogger competition. Each week an article of clothing or a pair of shoes is sent to the bloggers who have entered. Those in the competition then have to style that article of clothing/shoes and blog about it. Tracey will post the links to the blogs on her Facebook page Indulge Clothing then it is up to you to vote for me by “liking” the post on her Facebook page!! 

I received my first package on Tuesday. I came home from work and it was there waiting for me at my bedroom door. I was so excited to rip open the packaging to find out what I had been sent!! I got a pair of black skinny jeans by LTB. *Fist Pump* Yes!! I have needed a new pair of jeans for ages, Tracey must have known 😛 ha ha. These jeans are made in Turkey. They have some stretch to them so even though they are super skinny they aren’t uncomfortable to wear 🙂 They have a nice sheen, almost leather look, which looks super stylish and takes them from being a normal pair of black jeans to more dressy pants. I LOVE them 😀 

Tight black jeans with a bit of a leather look to them; I immediately thought of glam rock. Styled with a cream lace blouse, black victorian granny boots and 1960’s inspired Mod makeup and you end up with a Glam Rock/Mod look. An edgy look with minimum effort, awesome! haha 🙂 Black skinny jeans and lace tops can be found in so many stores that creating this look for yourself is going to be a cinch!
Photos taken by the wonderful Belinda Radalj! 🙂

1920’s Inspired Makeup

Hello my lovelies!

Today I have professional photos of my makeup and outfit! I am really happy with how awesome they turned out! Considering I only decided that morning to do the makeup, just because I had nothing else planned, and I would have just taken photos with my iPhone but a photographer friend of mine posted on Facebook that he was free to do a shoot with someone that afternoon…I was most definitely free to have my photo taken! 😛

Here is a few photos from the shoot…I may add some pics to this post if Marti uploads more. I love how well my makeup came up in these shots!
