TheRaces: Beauty Essentials

img_9264_fotor_collageIn collaboration with TheRaces.com.au – the hottest new fashion and lifestyle destination for all things RACES, I wanted to share with you the beauty essentials that I pack inside my bag for the day.

First things first, you need a bag. Not just any bag. The bag has to match your outfit, compliment your shoes, and be big enough to fit a bunch of stuff but small enough that it does not inconvenience your race-day-existence. Tricky I know. For this crazy bag contradiction, I recommend a slightly oversized clutch (brownie points if it comes with a cross-body chain strap) in the designer variety. I’ve picked the Givenchy Antigona Envelope Leather Clutch by Cosette.com.au. Continue reading

Double Denim & Blush

DENIM SKIRT / SILKY BLOUSE /  DENIM JACKET / BLACK BELT / BLACK BOOTS 

Somewhere in between spring springing and my never ending addiction to blush and good denim – babing Helen from Boho Tailor, a few fellow Glassons-babes and I photographed our favourite Spring pieces from Glassons’ most recent collection. With Melbourne’s CBD as our backdrop, we break-ed only for fuel (read: baked goods/one-too-many-cappuccinos), outfit changes & the usual please-don’t-run-me-over car-situation, which is somewhat inevitable when shooting on the streets. Although absolutely adoring all the pieces we shot with on the day, my absolute favourite piece was the denim skirt – for its slightly oversized, well-made, darker denim vibe – aka the perfect transitional piece.

As a long-time lover of all things UNIQLO, I can never go past the quality, versatility and design of their timeless, classic pieces. As a full time uni-student/fashion-blogger/professional-social-butterfly I spend more time out than at home, so having a few good go-to classic pieces that work for any occasion is an absolute fashion-necessity.

Sneaking Around

IMG_8432

With an alarmingly strong belief that white sneakers literally make everything coolthese new favourites from Windsor Smith are no exception to the rule. Although usually opting for a more slim line, tennis-inspired sneaker, I was instantly attracted to the chunkier, platform-vibe of these ones. The detailed padding & sports-luxe feel brings with it a whole new element of cool. And plus the added platform is an easy fashion-forward alternative to heels (something which my feet will thank me for… Unfortunately my feet don’t seem to like heels quite as much as me). Today I paired back my look with charcoal tailored trousers, an Acne scarf for a bit of added warmth, a white slogan tee & a pop-of-burgundy-detail bag from Naked Vice. Continue reading
