Texture Time

(Wearing: Hello Parry Skirt,  Sportsgirl Top, Witchery Clutch.)

Is is that time of the year again... Hands up who has already eaten practically their own weight in chocolate. *Guiltily raises hand.* There is just something about those creamy, velvety balls of deliciousness I can not resist... and it is not even Easter yet! Sigh..
I'm not entirely sure how this outfit relates to Easter eggs (except for the fact that I most likely ate them on this particular day!) but honestly my mind will not stop thinking about them! I am wearing a recent purchase from Sportsgirl, the croc textured tee. I am quite smitten with a texture tee at the moment! I love that it gives an otherwise simple item an interesting edge. Don't you agree?

Anyway, I hope everyone has some fun in store for the four day weekend ahead of us, I certainly do.*

*My plans may or may not revolve around eating chocolate!

If you, like me, have been glued to your screens this past week obsessing over all the street style images from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week (and secretly wishing you were there!), then this post is for you! 

Don't get me wrong, the fashions on the runway were pretty drool worthy too, but it was definitely all eyes on the street style for me. I have put together a selection of my favourite looks for your viewing pleasure... Enjoy!!

Cause a Commotion

(Wearing: Cameo Top,  Sportsgirl Skirt,  Mollini Shoes.)

Australian fashion label, Cameo, are killing it!! Collection after collection, they just keep hitting it bang on the head.

Their latest collection, perfectly named Boogie Nights, features stunning mermaid-esque sequins, fabric origami and THAT lily palm print! Honestly, I could own it all! It took all of my restraint not to purchase the entire collection last week and satisfy my needs with this one stunning piece. 
As impractical as it may seem at first glance, (sparkly sequins don't slot that easily into everyday life!) I am determined to make this a versatile piece in my wardrobe. I though that maybe teaming it back with a pair of boyfriend jeans or channeling a bit of sport luxe in drop-crotch slouchy pants would help make this top more of a 'daytime sequins' piece! I'll let you know how it goes! 

What do you think? Can I make this work for daytime?

Vintage Chic Loves... BRUUG

(Wearing: Bruug Top, Keepsake the Label Skirt, Witchery Bag, Betts Shoes.)

You may have noticed by now that I think the Perth fashion industry is pretty impressive. I'm constantly in awe of the level of talent we have here in WA so I have decided to do a regular spot on the blog focusing on Perth creatives to help promote and support our local industry.
  Our first feature was on the lovely Mekel Illustration a few weeks ago (check it out here if you missed it!) and today I invite you into the wonderful world of Bruug.
Bruug is a relatively new fashion label here in Perth, founded last year by designer Natasha Butler. The Bruug aesthetic is simple yet stylish pieces that are affordable and easy to wear. A vision after my own heart!
I recently popped into the Claremont store to meet the stunning owner, Tash (and of course pick up a few pieces too!) The Less is More top (worn above) ticks all the right boxes in my opinion. Perfect high neck style (my current neck line of choice!), sheer fabric, clean lines and of course a great price!

 Tash was kind enough to spare some time so we could get to know a little more about the lady behind the label!! Check it out below...



You can see more of Bruug at the next STM Style Showcase on April 30th. New season Bruug will be hitting the runway in collaboration with local store Peachy. Get your tickets here

Urban Couture: Designer Capsule #4


As promised, here is the finale from this year's Urban Couture program. 

In the closing show, models draped in garments by local talent Citizens or Arcane, G by Georgia Victoria, Megisabella and Morgan Davies took to the late night runway.* 

The entire show had a futuristic vibe, with each of the designer's collections complimenting each other perfectly. Hues of blue, black and silver were evident in most collections and the use of unconventional materials and textures made for a very interesting display!
After the show we were lucky enough to stumble across a mini photo shoot in the park featuring G by Georgia Victoria's stunning 'Liquid Silver' collection.
It's always inspiring to see so much talent in one place and WA certainly has it's fair share of it. The Urban Couture program is a fantastic platform for aspiring local designers and I can't wait to see what next year brings!

* Please excuse the pathetic attempt at photography here.. it was dark and there was next to no lighting!!
