Dusk is my favourite time of day – it’s the cusp between afternoon and evening, when shadows start to lengthen and everything starts to slow down and unwind. There’s a reason they call it the “golden hour” and it’s not just because of the soft lighting that we get when the sun starts to set. Though that indeed is a perk and why I choose to take most of my photos at dusk.
This outfit from the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF) is one of my favourites, black with a hint of metallic. It’s simple, yet intricate. It’s elegant, yet edgy. When I saw this skirt on ASOS I knew it had to be mine, and what better place to wear it than to fashion week 🙂

I attended the VAMFF designer runway show on Saturday night with Celeste and we saw some amazing new collection pieces from Thurley, Misha Collection, White Suede and other gorgeous labels. Definitely true to say that we both added a few new pieces to our fashion wishlist for the Autumn/Winter coming. I always love an opportunity to frock up too!
Anyway, gotta go, it’s dusk. Time to make some magic happen ✨✨✨
What’s your favourite time of day, and why?
This is my take on the classic white t-shirt, and blue denim look. I wore it on the weekend to go for ice cream and a walk along the beach and Williamstown Botanical Gardens.

I absolutely adore this blue chambray wrap skirt I bought last year. It’s been a staple that goes with anything from a casual tee, to a dressy black top, to a collared shirt half-tucked in. The wrap trend is one that I’ve embraced thoroughly and I hope it stays for a long time to come coz I’m planning to continue wrapping myself in things. Why wouldn’t you want to? You become like a present to yourself that you get to unwrap at the end of each day 🙊🙊🙊
Anyway, it feels great to be inspired enough to get back on the blogging bandwagon. Leave me a nice comment, I’m looking forward to checking out some new blogs and also posting more from now on!
A well-fitting, good quality biker jacket is a trans-seasonal must have in my fashion books. It’s classy and timeless, yet edgy and fashion-forward. It can be worn in so many different ways, whether you have a more feminine style or you like to look grungy, or you’re into street wear. It suits almost every style I’d say.
For those who are ethically conscious, there are plenty of pleather and leather alternatives out there. I for one don’t buy real leather jackets – a) I prefer to know an animal wasn’t harmed for my outfit and b) there’s no way I would ever be able to afford it anyway 😛
Here is a little style board I put together to show you just how cool biker jackets are.
I bought one from Sportsgirl recently and it has been on high rotation ever since.
What do you guys think of the whole biker jacket trend?
Happy weekend lovelies!
Still coming to terms with the fact that I’m back in freezing Melbourne after spending a glorious month in European summer. Thought I’d post up some snaps since it’s been forever since I posted anything on this ol’ blog. Enjoy!

Didn’t feel like showing my face too much in this post – I’d had a fairly average night before and had a bit of a tough morning so it’s probably better that way! Snapped these pics down a cute street in Alexandria, Sydney with Mel from athletic/aesthetic on a grey day. We managed to get some decent shots, and I had a chance to practise my active wear photoshoot skills too!
I’m really feeling the monochrome black+white theme lately – I’m a bit over the crazy colourful Gormanesque type stuff for now, especially after the whole debacle about Gorman’s ethical standards etc etc.
Guess that makes me a pretty damn good Melbournian right?!
Have a great weekend everyone 🙂
Anna Quan’s new collection lookbook is a dreamy delight for the eyes. Shot in front of a textured rocky backdrop, this collection features relaxed, flowing silhouettes in subtle grey and white, camel and eggshell blue. The delicate combination of wool, linen silk looks absolutely luxurious.
I’m a big fan of the flared sleeves and relaxed, oversized hemlines. These pieces will be perfect for that Autumn transitional period between Melbourne’s warm sunny afternoons and those bitter chill mornings.
Hooray for Aussie designers kicking goals!
