One of the best feelings when it comes to fashion is discovering a new combination of old favourites that you didn’t realise could go together. I often find that by about the third time I wear an outfit, I’ve got the accessories down-pat and I’m wearing my favourite version.

Spread The Love

I’ve never been a big advocate of Valentine’s Day for two reasons: 1. My birthday is the day before and 2. I’m always single.

You see my style basically resembled an Iced Vovo (for those of you who don’t live in Australia, this is a sweet biscuit topped with pink marshmallow and coconut with a little strip of jam) and I literally had nothing to wear these random pieces with.

Nights At The Ballet

I just love dressing up for a night out, particularly if you have the time to do it properly. There is no better feeling than having an outfit that you have bought especially for an occasion, and finally putting it on, going through your own unique ritual to get ready while the anticipation builds in the pit of your stomach, and then stepping out feeling like a million dollars.
