...winter wonderland...

It's winter here down under and the best thing about winter is rugging up and wearing unbelievably, amazing, wonderful boots. I am currently on the hunt for the perfect pair to add to my collection but finding the right pair of boots seems to be more difficult than I thought. And who better to help a girl in need with such an important decision? friends! So please help me decide on the pair (keeping in mind I LOVE all things vintage)

Amazing boots #1 - combat/military boots
I've always wanted a pair of doc martins but never thought I could pull it off, but I am starting to fall in love with them all over again and loving the combat boot style. They are funky, comfortable and versatile (a pair that you can just chuck yet you know you will always look stylish)

Amazing boots #2 - wedge lace up boots
 These boots are fantastic! they combine the combat/military edge with sophistication. how that can be? who cares, they look hott! The tan pair is a Chloe boot and it also has a military and 19th century design whilst the purple boot (unknown brand) is military meets fashion!

Amazing boot #3 - can-can boots
These 19th century style boots are sexy, vintage and fashionable

Amazing boots #4 - suede wedge boot
These boots can be dressed up or dressed down. They are practical and fashionable and will go well with my wardrobe

So there you have it, my 4 choices of boots. Please let me know which style you like and I would love to hear your current favourite boots (they don't have to be from my options)

peace, love and fashion



p.s I just found this pair from Tabitha Simmons. I know they aren't boots but I think they are fabulous

...what do you think about denim on denim?...

Recently celebrities like Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Alba have been spotted teaming denim with denim. Are we really bring back what I believe is a big fashion NO NO!?

What are your takes, fashion trend or fashion faux?

...someone wise once said...

Fashion fades, only style remains the same

I truly believe that vintage glamour will always be the style that never fades

...I fell in love...

I found this image of a women taken in the 1920's. I automatically fell in love with the glamour that this decade has given us.

There is no doubt that this photo captures beauty, elegance and femininity and that the dress and accessories she is wearing are absolutely beautiful but her poise and body language is what gives this image its true appeal.

Not only should fashion be inspired from this glamorous decade but so too should all women. Fashion is an expression and an outlet of our personality and individuality, but we make who we are, who we are.

So be proud in the name of fashion and express your true beauty!

peace, love and fashion

...feminine and sexy...

If I were to be asked what my fashion style would be, I would honestly struggle to answer. I believe that fashion is an extension of your personality and who you are. People like to vocally express their emotions but I go that bit further and show it through fashion.

I do currently love items that are structured and tailored to fit the women's body whilst still allowing women to be feminine and sexy. With shades of pinks, purples and creams and fabrics that are stiff and structured. I see that the contrasts compliment each other, which works well in creating the tailored feminine portrait.
