What to Wear this Party Season | The Warehouse Summer Fashion Pt I


"It is easy to decide on what is wrong to wear to a party, such as deep-sea diving equipment or a pair of large pillows, but deciding what is right is much trickier.” 
― Lemony Snicket, The Slippery Slope

We hate to shock you, but Christmas is coming. And with Christmas comes parties and the pressure of picking the perfect outfit. This is our first of three posts with The Warehouse to give you some ideas for what to wear this summer. Today we are sharing two outfits you could wear to a Christmas or New Years occasion. 

top// Maya $25
skirt//  Garage $20

Ellen's look is centered around this gorgeous metallic top which could easily be dressed down with a pair of jeans. There are a couple of metallic options in the Maya range that we really loved. 

shoes// Garage $19
dress// Garage $29

Tara fell in love with this fabric the moment she saw it. With a slight animal influence and a really cool strap detail, this dress would be perfect for day or night.

OOTD: bananas & midriff experimentation


"This shh is bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S"
- Gwen Stefani

The moment I spotted this banana print fabric in Cotton On I was in love. I was however a little unsure on the cropped style of the t-shirt. Crop tops have been a massive trend these past few summers but the few I own never seem to sit right. Being 5'11, crops tops can easily become overly cropped on me and result in a lot of midriff on show. The reason I love this banana top is its the perfect length. Although I'm not usually one to bare my mid-section, I felt I little daring last week and decided to try wearing the top with my favourite Esprit mid-rise jeans. I am still not 100% convinced about this whole midriff thing, but I can say I am completely in love with this banana print.

After searching for a quote for this blog post Tara and I couldn't help, but thing of Gwen Stefani's 'Hollaback Girl' song. I'm having total throwback moment watching the old music video. She's even wearing a crop top in the video, how convenient ;)
