Recently the talented and beautiful human beings that are Natasha Schweitzer and Catch Love Collective launched their amazing Fall/Winter 2015 lines. I had the pleasure of attending their super fun launch party.

It was really a great night! It was so good seeing my wonderful friends launch such amazing lines.

On the night of the event, I was decked out in pieces from both amazing lines. The amazing Florence Blouse from Catch Love Collective is the perfect blend of classic style, luxury and comfort. It doesn’t hurt that it’s extremely affordable! I also got to rock these amazing earrings from one of the coolest chicks I know Natasha Schweitzer. Natasha’s whole line was inspired by bubbles and the Double Drop Hoop Earring translates this inspiration completely. Not only are they the perfect mix of high fashion and my own personal desire to have a little bit of ghetto fabulous in me but they are the lightest weight earrings for such a statement piece.

I recently scored these amazing loafers on sale from Satine in Venice Beach. The lovely employees at Satine were nice enough to ship them all the way out to me in Australia because I was missing their famous sale. I had such a fun time visiting Satine when I was in LA in December, I am already wanting to make another trip back to the U.S.A. Now back to the shoes, they are amazing. The softest leather and they make me feel like a super trendy Michael Jackson (who doesn’t want to look like Michael Jackson?). This outfit is sort of Michael Jackson circa Billy jean, and I mean that in the best possible way.

This look was completed with one of my favourite and the most comfortable T-shirts by Madewell. Just to give it a bit more of a vintage feel, I paired it back with some of my new Acne Studios pop jeans.

I also can’t stop carrying around my recent Christmas present, the sac du jour by Saint Laurent. My amazing boyfriend really spoiled me this time. It’s so perfect for work because I can almost fit anything in there. Laptop, creative pads, cameras, you name it!

What are you guys thinking of my bangs? Should I do the full chop and get a Freja Beha? Im contemplating it…..

Guess you’ll just have to wait and see!

Equipped with the Basics

Some of you may not know this but Monday to Friday, I am the marketing manager and online editor at the boutique, Calexico. This past week we rented a unique space for one of our weekly shoots. The apartment was decorated by the owner who happened to be a furniture designer and architect. He has a modern aesthetic to design and makes very interesting pieces. It all went perfectly with the vibe I was aiming for and allowed us to showcase all the amazing basics and essential pieces Calexico has to offer. It was my first mini campaign that I styled (with some help from the model who is also my sudo-assistant), shot, and edited. I love the colour tones in all the photos and the moodiness of the lighting. Cant wait to continue posting all my work outside of just the shoots I do for myself!

New Age 70’s

Campaign

After a cold month of December in the U.S.A, I am now back in Australia and fighting the humidity and heat that wafts in the air of Queensland. I am not sure what has caused the mood but recently I have had a sudden want, no, NEED to wear flared jeans and sleeveless shirts. This combination to me is picturesque of California summers and for some reason reminds me of the palm trees lining the streets of LA. Maybe I’ll always be a California girl at heart, and no matter where I live or how long I live there I’ll always get the desire to move back to it’s sunny coast. When I was in the U.S. and having a cheeky browse at the amazing Neiman Marcus sale, I found these McGuire flared jeans with a raw hem and immediately fell in love, unfortunately, they were not on sale, as are all items I tend to drift toward in stores (I chalk it up to expensive taste, but I may just be unlucky). This new pair of denim, covers all the desires I have in life for a flare, and paired with my graphic MSGM t-shirt and ASOS heeled sandals, has me feeling like a 70’s rockstar about to slap on some rollerblades and boogie on down. I also picked up a new pair of sunglasses on my trip overseas. I was in search for a pair to replace my Celine Audrey sunglasses after Cornelius decided to eat them for breakfast (may they rest in peace) and I think these new Saint Laurent’s have filled the void that my Celine’s ultimately left in my life.

I have also paired this outfit with my unreal MOOI leather and cowhide envelope clutch. MOOI is an amazing brand that makes beautiful leather products. She also makes all her items with leather that is leftover from the food industry in Africa.  You can view her website and all her amazing purses here: MOOI

Wine Country in Winter: How to dress for Napa Valley

Canon Ebay Photos 6-2

This past month, I went on a very long vacation to California to catch up with my family and friends over the holiday season. One of the benefits of my life in California is my house in the Napa Valley. For those of you who have never been to the Napa Valley, it can be VERY cold during the winter, but when considering all the activities that are to be done in wine county, like, wine tasting, wine tasting, and more wine tasting, it is essential to have only the chicest outfit while pounding all that vino. While wine tasting can appear to be a very classy event, it can also be a long process. So its important to still look your best while also appealing to your comfort levels. Because it was so cold while I was there, I opted for a suede jacket (this is a similar version, not in suede, and on sale!) that is by far the warmest jacket I own. I paired it with my white equipment silk button-up (it’s on SALE!), blue jeans, and thigh high black boots (These are so comfortable), a chunky belt, a beanie, and my new Saint Laurent sunnies.

Regardless of what you wear, Napa Valley is always an amazing place to visit with friends and family. It has delicious food, amazing views, and the yummiest wine. The next time you visit Napa feel free to let me know and I will send you a list of my favourite places to visit!

Blazers and Bekkets

Cropped Blazer // Boyfriend Jeans // Bekket Sneakers // White T-shirt

I can’t really say what my style is exactly like, but recently I have wanted to wear nothing but sneakers and boyfriend jeans. This outfit is a funny twist on something your supposed to wear to work paired with something that I would love to wear everyday (ALL DAY). I think that the structured fit of a cropped blazer paired with a pair of baggy denim is a contrasting look that is super chic but also SO comfortable and easy. Who doesn’t want to be easy (get your mind out of the gutter)? I know that I have been completely MIA lately, and that is because I have recently taken a new job as the Marketing Manager of my favourite boutique in Brisbane, Calexico. Its going to be a lot of hard work managing both that as well as Katie Eve, but I am committed to making both brands as best as they can be. On a lighter note, I will be setting off on a month long vacay to my birth place, the US of A. Get ready for a live update of all the fun trips Im taking, and of course all the fun stuff that I am wearing! I get to go from summer weather back to winter (my favourite time of the year). Winter clothing is just so much fun to wear. There are so many options and so much layering to be done when its winter. Stay tuned for some fun updates! xx
