Shoes are made for walking!

Shoes are the most important accessory to every girl, they can make or break an outfit and can make you feel like a million bucks.
High heels, ballet flats, boots, flat forms your choices are endless. My favorite pick of the week are my leopard print loafers from Betts Shoes. These are my go to shoes when I have a lot of walking to do. They are super comfy and still feel stylish mixed with fierce.

What are your go to shoes?

Ginger & Smart

 After being apart of VAMFF (Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival) I discovered the amazing Australian label, Ginger & Smart. The runway that the Smart sisters presented was a fashion feast for all eyes. Their designs are for the individual woman who seek to have a distinctive style.

I was then on the hunt for a Ginger & Smart item of my own. This dress from their Akin line was perfect. It is bright, fun and has great movement in the skirt. The long sleeves mean it is winter safe and the 70s inspired pattern makes it an interesting and individual piece. My favorite hidden detail of this dress is the cut outs in the shoulders, it shows a flash of skin and in my case a flash of ink. 

What new labels have you recently discovered and instantly loved it?

This week has been the true beginning of a Melbourne winter, non stop rain!
To match the doom and gloom of the weather I decided a fabulous monochrome outfit would be perfect. Monochrome can be worn many different ways; spots, stripes, patterns or even as simple as a white top and black skirt. Monochrome is a minimalist look that highlights two contrasting but yet harmonious colours, when wearing a combo like this you can not fail in looking elegant.
I have tied the whole outfit together with black and gold accessories, classic and chic all in one!

Let me know what you think about this outfit, love or hate?

Capes and Leopard Print

As a child the cape symbolised the handsome prince on his white horse or the super hero coming to the rescue, now it symbolises high fashion and it can be affordable ($79.95 affordable). The cape possess an element of mystery and elegance, they have a clean and chic look to them and come in many different shapes and sizes. They can be worn out to dinner or to a play or even a casual day of shopping. Capes are going to be my staple for winter 2014.

This is my first and only leopard print, I chose to not go with your traditional animal colour but fun bright colours. The verdict is in and I am in love! It is bright, fun, easy to wear and my new favorite dress. It is perfect that it came in a skater cut. A skater dress is the best cut and fit for a female with curves and a small waist.

What are your thoughts on these items together as an outfit?
Do you have the love for capes this year?
