I get what I want

Sirens' Cardigan, Sirens' Belt, Suzy Shier Jeans, Lulu's Heels*

I hadn't set out to try to channel my inner Audrey Horne but it just sort of happened?

I paired a simple ivory cardigan from Sirens with my new black high waist jeans from Suzy Shier (which were a complete bargain at $25!) and these lovely Anne Michelle t-strap heels from Lulu*s.

Lulu's Dress*, Sirens' Belt, Steve Madden Heels

I love this Lulu*s dress! It's a perfect little black cocktail dress and the off the shoulder style adds a little bit of sex appeal without showing too much skin. I paired it with a skinny belt to give myself a bit more shape and my favourite heels for a classic, evening appropriate outfit.

I always like to experiment a bit with fashion in the springtime (I know it's not technically spring here yet, but it will be soon!), I get so tired of the same old, same old of winter! I bought this blazer last autumn from Sirens and had barely worn it, but I decided to try to create an outfit around it. I ended up pairing it with one of my favourite thriftred shirts, old jeans (also thrifted), and black heels.

Another thing I get in the mood for in the spring is bold eyeliner and beehive hair, so you may be seeing a fair bit of that in the coming months!

I also thought, for a change, I'd include a FOTD with my OOTD, so here we go!

I wore my everyday face makeup (more about that here) and eyeshadow, and went with bold liner and my favourite tinted lip balm (reviewed here!).


32nd of December

Burgundy Cardigan - Suzy Shier
Lace Shirt - Sirens
Shorts - Motel/ASOS
Tights - ???
Platform Heels - Aldo

The past two NYEs have been, frankly, fashion bummers. 2010 was stylish, but super uncomfortable. A constricting sequinned top and uncomfortable high waist shorts. With tights, of course. You know, for warmth and extra uncomfortablness. Whilst last year was comfortable but so... not stylish. A particularly ugly, unflatteringly oversized cardigan and black jeans. Black jeans, fine, good even. Completely stretched out cardigan with a crew neck? No. This year, I wanted to try to do something that could encompass both factors, fashion and comfort.

 I paired my lace shirt from Sirens (contrasting the colour with a black bra) with my new Motel shorts. I bought them in November on sale and they've become a staple in my wardrobe recently, absolutely love them! Super short shorts are my favourite, no matter if it's summer or winter. I may not be the skinniest girl in the land and I don't have perfect legs, but they always make me feel fab.

I added my burgundy cardigan from Suzy Shier to make the outfit a tad more casual (and warm) and wore my Aldo platforms heels to add a bit of height, or rather, almost 6 inches of it. And I can't, for the life of me, remember where my tights are from and they have no tags. Drives me mental as they're the most comfortable black tights I've had since.... ever, really!

Overall, I think I achieved what I set out to.
