Diamonds are forever...


"Because diamonds are a girls best friend!"
-Marilyn Monroe


We all know the words to the song,
and deep down every girl is a sucker for something sparkly! 
Like magpies, we a drawn to the biggest diamonds we can find,
even if we need a crane to lift it on our fingers.

I'm only 16 (happy birthday to me for yesterday tehe), and i can only afford the fake stuff,
but i dream of a day when a man can put a rock the size of the one on my left hand!!

Shoes, aren't they glorious?




"I like Cinderella, I really do. She has a good work ethic. I appreciate a good, hard-working gal. 
And she likes shoes. The fairy tale is all about the shoe at the end, and I'm a big shoe girl."
- Amy Adams

Say no to black..


"One is never over-dressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress."
-Karl Lagerfeld

Roll your little black dress up into a ball and throw it into the corner, 
because its all about colour right now!
The brighter the better,
Black is out, 
When i walk down the street i want to be blinded with colour!
I know this is going to be a hard one for you Kiwis, as we are a nation known for constantly wearing black,
but give it a try, you wont be disappointed, a little bit of colour brings a smile to any face...

Looking for some inspiration? check out my trusty second hand yellow skirt I got from Savemart.
I wore it to NZFF with my sisters black corset, black boots, a dark woollen coat and my little old robot necklace.

Fashion Festival Highlights...




"Fashion designers are dictators of taste."
Karl Lagerfeld

Here are some of my highlights from NZ Fashion Festival's Collections 4 last Thursday night!


1.  Being so keen for the show and turning up a whole hour early because both you and your sister cant read the clock. 
(i know, we are such fashion show noobs) 

2.   Getting Movenpick ice-cream across the road to fill in that empty hour.


3.  Loved the cute young outfits that hit the runway thanks to 'Huffer', i could totally see myself in the particular look below, cant you?


4.   Lonely Hearts show cased some gorgeous little dresses that certainly sent whispers through the audience!


5.   Both the jumpsuit and little blue dress below were by 'Sylvester' by Kate Sylvester. 
I liked the simple girlie feel of these looks and immediately wanted to add them to my wardrobe.



6.   Another thing loved about collection 4 was the amazing hairstyles done by Tresemme, Fishtail plaits are so hot right now!



7.   
Another highlight was our amazing front row seats :)


What do you think?

Stay tuned for more posts on New Zealand Fashion Festival.

Be you...




“Chanel is composed of only a few elements, white camellias, quilted bags and Austrian doorman's jackets, pearls, chains, shoes with black toes. 
I use these elements like notes to play with.” 

- Karl Lagerfeld


When it comes to fashion, there are a million different directions you can go in. 
Endless numbers of different colours and fabrics are at your finger tips. 
With the right combination of these things, you can create something perfect for you.
Something that doesn't mimic a trend or follow a fashion law. 
An outfit that doesn't fit neatly into a labelled box.
Your not a cliché, you cant be labelled, you are you and embrace that when you get changed this morning...

On that note, i present to you what a wore to the MAC 'On Trend' at NZ Fashion Festival
Embracing my style, I wore a lot of pink, because deep down, its the colour i will always love. Even if its not the 'IT' colour this season, you will still catch me in it.


This first photo was taken by Nikau from www.fashionphotos.co.nz/, check out her blog!


Me with my Media pass below in Shed 10 in the VIVA Lounge room waiting for the MAC seminar to begin...


So embrace you and your style no matter the trend!


P.S Check out our GIVEAWAY,and you could win a brand new dress of your choice from the gorgeous'LOVE', this is your last week to enter this giveaway!
