gold & silver

I do admit to being a bit of a makeup junkie. One of my favourite go-to makeup brands is Estee Lauder. Back in May this year, I was lucky enough to get my hands on the very last limited edition Pure Colour eyeshadow palette in Wild Violet. This palette is perfect for the festive season as it features five eyeshadows which contain shimmery shadows in gold, silver and deep purple, as well as matt shadows in taupe and fawn.

Pure Colour 04 Wild Violet

Earlier on in the week, I attended a special graduation ceremony for the grade sixes at the primary school where I work. I decided to go for a more celebratory look, featuring gold & silver eyeshadows. I used my trusty Lancome Le Crayon kohl eyeliner in noir and the fabulously intense faux cils mascara by Chantecaille, also in black. I cannot live without this mascara. It's the creme de la creme!





As my eyes were quite intense, I left the lips fairly nude and chose to wear my Estee Lauder Signature lipstick in Venetian Rose. My holy grail foundation (as featured here) is Chanel's Vitalumiere, along with the blush and bronzer universal.

 
The night called for my trusty LBD. You can never go wrong with a little black dress! I accessorised it with my favourite pearls. Chanelling Madame Chanel, I felt ever so glam and ready to celebrate the evening. The makeup seemed to suit the occasion perfectly. It was a night to remember for sure!

What's your favourite party look for the season?

    Red lips & lined eyes do look amazing, especially with false eyelashes.

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.


I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.








This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 






This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…

V & A "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion Exhibition"

I am thrilled to announce that, thanks to London's Victoria and Albert Museum, a fabulous exhibition, "Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" is coming to the Bendigo Arts Gallery this Winter. The exhibition is timely, as this year marks the centenary of the first Balenciaga fashion house. 

The exhibition will showcase the legacy of the house designer, Cristobel Balenciaga and will include his designs, which revolutionised what we know today as contemporary fashion. 

"Balenciaga: Shaping Fashion" opens August 17 until November 10, 2019 at Bendigo Arts Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo.
