Lady in red

I came, I saw, I wore red again. Funny that. Instead of the usual red pump, or red lip, opt for a red print. Lucky Ellery knows how to nail the ‘almost’ unusual yet ultimately dreamy red print. May this silky number keep making my days (when I wear it) blissfully better.

Flower Power

I know its quintessential to wear flowers in Spring/Summer, and to be quite honest I have never really been the type to wear flowers, BUT I have surprised myself and worn them quite a few times as of late. I think it is because the florals are quite subtle in colour, so they are not as overly feminine? 

If I am wearing a floral piece, I either pair it back with a classic wardrobe staple, or an alternate shoe to toughen up the outfit a little (i.e. my biker boots). Nothing like a little flower power.

It is a knit party

You know when the hot sweltering Summer tempretures start to die down, and you can finally wear more than a cotton dress…..well it is that time baby! 

Sydney, even though you have been awfully wet the past 7 days, I certainly like the fact that you are a bearable temp!

Wearing a knit dress in my favourite colour, back with extra pointy flats, exceptionally awesome earrings, and the sunglasses I never seem to leave the house without.

Unusual Layering

When it comes to fashion, winter is my favourite season. I wouldn’t say it is my favourite season in general, there are times where I refuse to go outside, when I am on the lower east side of New York and the polar vortex graces us with its presence. 

Winter fashion melts my heart because of one thing: layering. I layer almost everything. You will always see me layer a turtle neck under a shirt or dress, a t-shirt under a cami or dress, and even pants under dresses. The opportunities are endless people.

Yesterday, I was hanging in the Lover store at (my fav!) Strand Arcade, trying all their new Autumn/Winter 17 goodness. Time for summer to be gone. As much as I like the beach, I am a little over sweltering in this ‘hottest Summer’ since ……. forever.

Weekdays in Margiela and Prada

If you spend time scrolling online stores I am sure you have noticed that red is the colour of the season. A few years ago, I wouldn’t have been caught in it, but in the last few weeks I have bought a red patent leather skirt and heels so I have proved my old red-hater-self wrong. Wear red in a full colour block outfit (as in all red everything), or add a touch like I have today with my Prada heels

Meet my heels, the bright red pair of wonders I have wanted to buy for a while now. Does anybody else contemplate for far too long as well? Being the low heels they are, I wear them day or night. I found these lucky ladies on YOOX. (AKA the site that I seem to find all the last season pieces I – finally – want, at a reduced price. Enter extremely excited emoji face here). When buying the Prada’s, I couldn’t help myself, and bought this pinstripe Maison Margiela jacket as well. Well, it is a staple right? My moto: you can never have too many staples. I am sure my husband is not so fond of this moto. He is constantly listening to me justifying my purchases. “Well, if I am getting two pieces on sale and they are less than what one piece would be at full price, then I must buy both right?” Yes, YOOX. You get me every time!

If you want to buy any pieces from the site, use my 20% off code ‘BROOKE20.’ Thank me later.

The 7 Summer trends I am wearing

Lets get trendy.

I am not the usual suspect of ‘only’ wearing things on trend. I still have wooden clogs, knitted flares and light pink 70’s sunglasses in my wardrobe, so you could say that I like to pair my old-school favourites back with newbies. I however went into Westfield Warringah Mall (AKA my local), and found some goodies. And by goodies, I mean the trends I am fond of and have been wearing this Summer.

Watch the video folks. My favourite trends and even my new favourite vintage furniture is on show. Go, go, go.
