Dying my hair grey and maintaining the colour

Dying my hair grey and maintaining the colour

I know you guys are curious about me dying my hair grey. There are always questions and comments about it when I share a photo on the Facebook or Instagram pages. And I’m not going to sugarcoat it, it’s a pain in the butt sometimes. Grey is probably the hardest colour I’ve ever tried to maintain, and I’ve tried most of them! It’s one of those things, I suppose. Great in theory, but almost impossible to do well. I know. I tried and failed to get to this colour for a million years. Only a slight exaggeration. But we got there in the end. So, what made me decide to go grey? Well, the bottle version. I’m envious of natural grey…

How to spend less on clothes while remaining stylish AF.

How to spend less on clothes while remaining stylish AF.

In my newsletter last week, I asked the question what would you like to see MORE of, content wise. Two common themes were more affordable clothes and more advice on how to wear ‘things’. So, being the time-saver that I am, here’s a post about both! If you want to build your wardrobe, minimise the money you are spending on clothes and still look your version of on trend and stylish, these are my hot tips. Because let’s face it, not every budget has room for new clothes every season. Heck, some of those budgets probably don’t stretch very far at all. I’ve been there. Sometimes I feel like, without the supplements to my wardrobe, I’d still be there! I…

My spring races style for 2016

My spring races style for 2016

My sister is celebrating her birthday at the spring races in town again this year. It means that I’m again on the hunt for another races outfit, something that I can wear comfortably in the sun most of the day and still look amazing. The biggest factor is that this race meet has a black and white theme, exciting! Cue visions of elegant women trackside like a scene from My Fair Lady. So. Elegant. I mention that because there’s a chance that my research and my plans for this 2016 spring races season might be a little biased towards the black and white side of things. So I did my best here not to include the dozens of black options out…

How to wear sneakers with everything!

How to wear sneakers with everything!

Wearing sneakers with everything and anything is my thing. It used to be ankle boots, then somewhere along the way I decided that sneakers were fun and never took them off again. So when people kept landing on the blog asking ‘how to wear sneakers with this or that’ I decided it was time to answer the searching. Don’t you think? And sneakers can mean all sorts of styles from Converse to street style trainers to a more preppy style that looks like a loafer hybrid thing. Whatever your style sneakers are one of those items that every girl needs in her wardrobe. Because comfy. Haha. So let’s get the ball rolling, pull on your sneakers team. Sneakers and Dresses…

Winning in a simple white dress

Winning in a simple white dress

This little white dress, perfect for spring/summer, arrived just before I left for Melbourne and I optimistically put it in my bag. I always seem to bring the unseasonably warm days to Melbourne; maybe, this time, would be the same, and I’d need a warm weather option. It wasn’t. We had cool weather for once. Exciting! But that meant this dress never saw the light of day. It peeked longingly, but it was never to be. So home it came again and the moment finally arrived in the shape of Father’s Day dinner with the family. Easy to wear, only slightly risky given the presence of my adorable niece and nephews, and on a warm enough Sunday afternoon that it…

Melbourne Fashion Week Plus: Shop the Runway

Melbourne Fashion Week Plus: Shop the Runway

This past week we saw some of the biggest and brightest, as well as the newest brands, hit the runway to show off their wares. And boy team, there is some exciting stuff coming! I don’t believe a word of it when they say that Australia follows the trends, we lead. First into spring/summer 2016, we are leading the way for the rest of the world. That’s what I think! Leading the way. Leading the way with cool and unique styles. Fresh ideas and the fun use of fabric and colours to express this youthful culture of ours. It’s anything from a chic set of handmade lingerie to street-style you can wear every day. I was so proud of every…

Why the anti-fit jean has never let me down, ever.

Why the anti-fit jean has never let me down, ever.

Big call on the headline there, don’t you think team? NEVER let me down. Like, ever. But the anti-fit jean came into my life with the first 17 Sundays release and it’s been my go-to style ever since. After decades of mot really knowing what shape I’d call myself, it turns out that my stomach absolutely pushes me into apple territory. And the anti-fit, well it’s an apple girls dream jean. Why!? Because the lean fit of the leg, the WIDE waistband, and the skinny, skinny ankle. Fits like a glove, let me tell you. And even if you are days before your period, have over-indulged, or skipped the gym for a few weeks giving you a little extra squish…

Oh wait, are those FLARES!?

Oh wait, are those FLARES!?

Um yeah, they ARE flares. Killer, right? We might as well kick plus size jeans week off with a killer pair of flares and a fucker tee. I’m going to get to the flares, I promise I am, but I also need to talk about why it was SO important for me to wear this Be Polite You Fucker tee today. And I know you want to hear THAT story. Haha. Well, well, well. It’s been an interesting few days for me. I launched myself into a conversation for body shaming and found my Facebook page front and centre in a discussion for women, against women and with so many shades of grey opinions that I wore myself out. Deleting…

This is why you can’t always buy what I wear…

This is why you can’t always buy what I wear…

There’s a frustration that comes from seeing an item of clothing on a blogger and not being able to buy it. I get that. BEEN THERE. But the thing is that my wardrobe is something I live out of, I wear the clothes I blog and sometimes there are items in that I purchased YEARS before. Because that’s reality, right? This blog isn’t about having the most up to the minute, new from the post items that the world-wide web has to offer. It’s about style, personal style and living your life the best you can. And let’s face it, plenty of people spend more than they can afford on such things, and that would never sit right with me.…
