Wearing that 90’s trend, I didn’t think I would wear again

There is a trend, a trend quite a few of you might remember, it was quite prominent in the 90’s and I vowed to never wear it again. Well today I wore it, very much enjoyed it and am glad I found a way to make it look more subtle.

Let’s rewind back to the 90’s when I was in year 7 or 8, I attended blue-light discos, wore (cringing as I type) silver glitter eyeshadow, a silver metallic mini dress and don’t forget the silver glitter lipstick. Thankfully the tragic makeup hasn’t appeared back in my beauty cabinet, but the metallic trend in fashion has. I have this silver Anine Binge mini which I paired back with a tight navy skivvy, oversized camel knit and snakeskin boots.

Now if you are not daring enough to wear it within your clothing, a few of our designers have you covered in accessories. I have been eyeing off these Gianvito Rossi silver velvet pumps, Gucci horsebit metallic sling-back flats, Acne Studios metallic sneakers, Rupert Sanderson flats and Miu Miu floral silver skirt. If you want this trend on a budget, check out these finds: Asos mid-heeled mary jane shoes, Asos caged metallic heels, Topshop metallic pleated skirt and Topshop silver wrap dress.

Wearing –

Anine Bing silver skirt (budget version: Topshop, Topshop), Uniqlo navy turtleneck, Interval camel ribbed knit, Topshop boots (old season – flat version here) and Loewe sunglasses

A different take on a silk slip this Winter

When I think silk slips I think Spring, but mine has definitely been getting a good wear this Winter. Wearing a chunky knit over the top for added warmth, back with the added snakeskin boot, it was the perfect outfit to wear from day to night.

Walking to meetings and a lunch, I needed the maroon chunky knit (one of the colours I forever lust over for Winter) to protect me from the icy winds, but come dinner at Apollo, I was able to take off the knit and wear only the slip. Sexual.

Wearing –

Faithfull the brand knit | Faithfull the brand silk slip dress | Vintage boots | Loewe sunglasses

Pearls my way

Remember being at your Grandmas house, playing with her puff powder makeup and trying on her jewellery? These are some of my fond memories. I clearly remember when she smacked the back of my hand when I dropped her pearl necklace like it was only yesterday. I now know why I got in trouble. I wouldn’t want anyone loosing my pearl necklaces either.

To me pearls signify vintage, ol’school cool with hints of elegance. If you saw my home, it inspires to those three elements, so pearls couldn’t be more me if they tried.

Welcome to my wild world Paspaley pearls. You will be forever cherished.

Make the skirt the statement

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the weather forecast for this weekend here in Eastern Australia: Flooding, more beach erosion possible for NSW as another Winter storm looms. Brilliant.

I thought I ought to wear a skirt because come this weekend, raincoats and Hunter Boots will be a best seller. When wearing a skirt this time of year, I always take a pair of stockings/tights in my bag –  just incase. Goosebumps, well my abnormally noticeable goosebumps, firstly aren’t a fashion statement, and secondly, I already had the flu last month thank you very much. For all my readers in the Northern Hemisphere, this light linen skirt is perfect for your warm days. Insert an extremely jealous looking emoiji here.

This Albus Lumen linen skirt was the statement piece of my outfit, pairing it back with a few of my black staples.

I am off to enjoy this Winter sun while it lasts.

Wearing – Albus Lumen skirt | Uniqlo turtle neck | 3.1 Phillip Lim bag (similar here) | vintage locket | Topshop boots (similar here)
