The Alice + Olivia FW 2014 Collection

 

Look 1 Custom 682x1024 The Alice + Olivia FW 2014 Collection

 

If you’re one who likes bold, contrasting colours, structured silhouettes and intricate detailing, you might want to check out the Alice + Olivia FW 2014 Collection, designed by Stacey Bendet. I popped by the store last week and caught sight of so many pieces I wished I could bag home.

 


 

Metallic is the new black, or so they say. The new collection prominently features butterfly prints and bohemian motifs, and is all about being bold enough to showcase the inner you that is subdued and mysterious. Glitter and sequins add dimensions where necessary, and the combinations of colours bring each piece to life. For the not-so-daring, there are also a few which are more prêt-à-porter. Check it out!

Workplace Essentials Vol. 001

I’ve always kind of wanted a home office. Or an office of my own where I call the shots. But the more I think about it, the more I can’t help but feel there’s a chance I might actually end up being depressed most of the time if it were true. I mean, not being able to hang out with people I like, my friends at work or just to meet new people with interesting personalities? That must be a hell lot of boring.

 

If you’re like me and you have a job, chances are you also have a workplace. These are my picks for the blog’s new series: Workplace Essentials! Everything featured in this series is stocked up in The Style Store so you can browse the entire catalogue to your heart’s content too. Of course, if you haven’t learnt by now, if you subscribe to the blog, you’ll get your free copy of my ebook on workplace styling.

OOTD: At the Derby

Who goes to the Derby? Me! Who goes and bets on horses at the Derby? Me! Who loses? Me. But, who also has a pom-pomique fascinator? Me!

 

This year, I wore a 3-year-old white eyelet dress, one that I still normally wear to work.  I decided on the demure look this day, and complemented it with neutral shades, so as not to draw attention away from the fascinator.

Link Love: Hosting the Perfect Cosy Get-Together

 


July 2014 Combined new Link Love: Hosting the Perfect Cosy Get Together

 

For the past 5 years or so, ever since I’ve lived abroad and then came home to live with my parents again, I’ve been wishing for my own place. Just a nice, little abode that I can call a place of my own, where I can have moments of silence just to read, or a cosy point for friends to get together and enjoy one another’s company.

 

While it’s going to take me a while to get there, here’re some tips for those of you lucky ones who have reached that stage of life, where you can host small, intimate parties for your loved ones.

 

1. If you’ve bought a new pair of shoes to go with your outfit, Jillian from Coffee, Light and Sweet tells us how to break into them without any pain.

2. The people at Pinkous let us in on the code to hair colour! Bookmark this page and bring it to your stylist at your next dye appointment.

3. Keira at A Pretty Penny lets us in on 10 beauty cheats that every girl should know, perfect for that last minute fix!

4. This may be an older post, but the tip is still highly relevant. Sasha from So Sasha tells us how to turn your preloved, used up candle into a brush holder. What a great way to recycle and decorate your dresser or powder room!

5. Finally, Nicole at Vanilla Extract teaches us how to keep our wines chilled but not diluted.

OOTD: Making Waves

I must admit it: Shopping is my drug! I don’t get into serious trouble like Rebecca Bloomwood, but I totally understand when she sees something and then tells herself she really needs it.

 

Like this dress I saw while window shopping at the mall one day. Yes it’s a joke. Window shopping at a mall? Hah, as if that ever happens!

3 Ways to Wear Prints

 

Skirt Print 3 Ways to Wear Prints
 

Believe it or not, everyone can wear prints, even you! Yes, you! Maybe you’re not so keen on bright, bold colour blocking. Or maybe you just prefer sticking to something more understated, something that can take you from day to night, from weekday to weekend. But prints show off your attitude, girl! Here are three ways to wear prints, whether you’re the sassy babe, or the more casual, low-down type.

 


 3 Ways to Wear Prints

Dress | Romwe

Hat | Romwe

Bag | Romwe

Earrings | Style by Stories

Lipstick | Lipstick Queen

Heels | River Island


 

If you like bold colours, why not go all out and accessorise with a vintage bowknot hat? Any jewellery you wear should not take the attention away from the dress, so pearl earrings can do the trick! Show off those gams you’ve got with power heels (sandals are a great chance to let the world lay its eyes upon your magnificent pedicure). A small body bag fits just about enough to bring you around town, and a pink lippie adds that final touch of colour to your complexion so you aren’t overpowered by all the jazz!
