It's a stinking hot weekend in Sydney! Which unfortunately means my normal black-on-black won't do me any favours in the heat. So from one extreme to the other, it was time to bring out the white-on-white, as much as I love the look of white on white, its definitely something hard for me to pull off which means I've got to be extremely selective about the length, cut and drape on any white on white outfit.

Since I'm currently obsessed with culottes and crossover backs, the Pina Colada Jumpsuit by Dead Ivy ticked all the boxes! With a waistband to slim the hips and halter to complement my Cosmo Blazer, I slipped on my headphones and was ready for the day ;)

Here's a weird fact about me: I'm obsessed with real life murder mysteries (especially the unsolved kind!), my favourite TV series is Hannibal and I could spend an entire day watching back-to-back crime documentaries and feel content with my day. Now, as much as I enjoy these activities, it has also lead me to believe that empty car parks are a hot spot for kidnapping and late night crimes... sooooo I may have not been that excited about the late afternoon shoot in an empty carpark, but I promise I'm excited about the clothes I'm in!

I did a bit of St Frock mix and match this week with the Falling Crop in White and the Chance Twist Front Skirt (also comes in other colours!)

DAY 3 - NICOLE X MISSGUIDED

DAY 3 - NICOLE X MISSGUIDED
And last but not least, Day 3 has arrived! Saving the best till last, this set in white is my top pick from the Nicole X Missguided Collection. Featuring cut outs to accentuate curves and a high neck to lengthen the body, the Cut Out Top and Midi Skirt in White is the perfect day to night piece. What I also love about this set is that the top and skirt can be purchased on their own so that you can mix and match according to season and occasion.

What I will say though, was that it was a bit hard to keep my eyes open for this shoot being in the blinding light wearing all white (so excuse the half closed eye pictures) so thank goodness for the Kezie Circle Sunglasses and Sebrina Floppy Hat for making this shoot a fail safe ;)

So there it is, my 3 Days of Missguided - which look was your favourite?

DAY 2 - NICOLE X MISSGUIDED
Say hello to the ultimate hourglass illusion cut out dress. The Nicole X Cut Out Long Sleeve Dress may seem like a figure-hugging number made only for the womanly Scherzinger frame but its stretch fabric and strategic placement of cut-outs can mould to fit any shape. If you're someone that is a bit more pear shaped and on the shorter end of the scale like myself, here's an example of what the Nicole X Cut Out Long Sleeve Dress looks like on a frame similar to you. If you're more of an hourglass shape like Nicole Scherzinger, click here to check out her strikingly sexy figure in this dress.

Stay tuned on the blog and follow me on Instagram (@annnieo) for tomorrow's reveal of my Nicole x Missguided pick!

Walk Over Dress

The struggle between long hair and temperamental wind is real.

A lot of pear-shaped ladies (like myself) often try to steer clear of white dresses whether they be free-flowing or form fitting. My tip for drawing the attention away from problem areas when wearing white would be to pick something with a high neck to balance out the body and possibly bell sleeves like this Elliatt Lace Walk Over Dress to draw attention away from the hips and towards "lengthened" arms. 

What are your usual tricks to pulling off a white dress? 

Farewell Long Weekend!

The long weekend has just flown right by and I'm hoping this balloon will take me back to my happy place. It's been such a long time since I've had a decent time to unwind, catch up with friends and family and just let my hair down. The past 6-7 months have really shown me how much I haven't been looking after myself physically and emotionally and it's time that I tell myself that sometimes its okay to have a bit of me time.

Today's shoot was quick, unplanned and impromptu but completely representative of how I finally feel, FREE.

A new chapter of my life has begun and I can gladly say, I'm ready!!!

Ruby Sees All and Mules

Y'all know how I'm like when I see a matching set - it's an instant MUST HAVE IT moment, especially when it comes to Ruby Sees All. It's slowly emerging as one of my favourite Auslabels and I can't wait to see more of whats to come for SS14. The weather is warming up over here and I'm excited for skirts, crops and summer capes.

On another note, I also finally found my mules! I fell in love with ZARA's mules earlier this year but was a few days too late and the shoe was nowhere to be found. Then one day as I was scrolling through The Iconic I noticed a similar pair by Therapy Shoes for a fraction of the price, gosh I love a good bargain! The Iconic stock brands such as Therapy and Spurr that have shoes starting from $20 which is utterly amazing, if you haven't had a browse yet I would highly recommend it if you're always after a bargain like me :)

The Cassandra and Ellery

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

It's finally warming up in Sydney, HOORAH!! Time to bring out the lace kimonos, mini scuba bodices, skorts and strap sandals!!

Today's hump day outfit flows in order of head-to-toe as beach-to-street. I've been dying to take the Cassandra Lace Cape out for some sun but while the weather is still in-between I've given the TRIANGL bikini a miss and replaced it with it's best friend, the scuba bodice in the form of the Ellery Top by one of my new favourite labels, Black by Geng.

Following from that is a pair of white skorts similar to what you may have seen me wear a few times last season except I've replaced cotton for a leather look. The Leather Look Skorts by Glue Store is my favourite side-step from the traditional skirt because of my pear-shaped body. When you're wider around the hips, it can be a challenge to find a leather skirt with the right fit because many of them are non-stretch. These Glue Store shorts are the perfect fit for the legs with strategic front panels to suit my body shape, it's one of the many little tricks up my sleeve for Spring! What do you think of the Leather Look skorts and all the upcoming new season styles that have been dropping in Glue Stores lately? Yes? No? Would love to hear your thoughts!

And last but not least, the shoes. A rule of thumb many women follow is that the shoes and skirt must be a darker colour than the rest of your outfit in order for things to match but I beg to differ. If your outfit has a feature colour (similar to a feature wall in a room) you should complement it with feature accessories so these Camille Shoes by Wanted Shoes were the perfect cherry on top for me this week! Bring back the strap sandals for Spring I say!!!

Forcast - The Cara Set

When it comes to fashion there are three things I love the most: convenience, comfort and affordability. These three reasons are why I tend to always pick twin sets to slip into on the weekend. Lately I've also been obsessing over box-cut tops and skorts so it seems as though Forcast have read my mind in their latest SS14 drop! I also can't get over the gorgeous pale blue, its just the Spring pop I needed to break up all the monochrome left over from winter.
