Awards Dinner – Cocktail Attire

6 Oct

Had an Awards Dinner to attend for work this week. The dress code said: Cocktail. I chose the above number from Ruby in NZ as I thought the high neck, cap sleeves and neutral tones were work suited… however the gold zip back detail and snug fit kept it age appropriate. I am only 24 after all!

The colour of shoes/accessories was the hard part. I had thought some cute gold strappy heels or Nude platforms would have done the trick… but with my olive tone it started to look too “same:same”… so the black platforms and matching clutch ended up winning on the night!

Festival / Casual Look
This is my favourite look of ALL TIME. You really can’t beat a simple black tee teamed with some denim cut offs. Team with some brown leather accessories and you are away laughing/partying this summer!

The Denim Shirt is Back!

1 Oct

The Denim shirt is back from the 80’s in full force… and I have to admit I am a BIG fan. I am EVEN coming around to the denim on denim trend… who would have thought that trend would ever make another appearance? If you are keen to join me on this trip back in time, Top Shop (via Polyvore) have a cute little number.

Peplum mad

30 Sep

Has anyone else gone Peplum Mad? I sure have! I love the way the peplum is adding a sense of womanly curves to an age whereby most outfits seem to be trying to make us all look like stick insects.

In absolute LOVE with this stunner from Versace… WOW WOW WOW!

Add a touch of femininity to your work look with a peplum detailed blazer.

Found this gorgeous wee Sanchu Peplum Skirt online… can’t wait for it to arrive!

Tony Bianco Heels

28 Sep

Tony Bianco is an Australian based shoe company that not only makes beautiful shoes but they are also affordable and extremely comfortable! I have rather skinny feet so finding heels that manage to hold my foot in place so that my toes don’t slide all the way down to the pavement was a miracle. And when you are on to a good thing you stick to it. I am pretty sure I now have about 8 pairs of Tony Bianco shoes… and when the shoe buying urge hits me (as it often does) the Tony Bianco website is my first point of call.

Some of my faves at the moment:

Brydie in Black Suede. I have this beauty on pre order at the moment. A staple for this summer I feel!

Shani in fudge monaco/burnish finish. I want these! I have quite a few neutral toned wedges at the moment however so I am trying to figure out a way of convincing myself that these are still a necessity…

Ajana points in white. I am loving the white points all over the fashion pages at the moment. I am seriously considering these as my next purchase.

Thin Gold Stacked Rings

28 Sep

In LOVE with this current trend of stacked thin gold rings. Gives a very boho/gypsy feel to any outfit and with summer encroaching fast it is a definite MUST addition to my daily wardrobe.

I have had a little look through Etsy.com and I managed to find some great little numbers for sale…

This 7 band gold ring has a rustic hammered effect.

A 3 tone, 3 band ring is a great little difference to the straight all gold look.

LOVING Chevrons at the moment. This above the knuckle gold chevron ring encompasses both trends in one. Gorgeous!

Work it.

28 Sep

Love this outfit for work. Simple, chic yet still youthful and feminine. I think sometimes we try too hard to fit into the ‘corporate mould’ and look far too aged and masculine in the process.

Neon Jeans for Summer

28 Sep

Just purchased these beauties from J Brand for Summer! Love that I can wear them causally with a Grey Tee and sandals during the day and then bring them into the night by simply slipping on some nude heels. Now I just need the tan!

The First Post…

28 Sep

I started my first blog about a couple of weeks ago and I got hooked! 

The focus of my first blog is on my life and finding passion within each and every day (www.lindaslade.org) … And what I quickly learnt is that my fashion and style is a BIG part of my daily enjoyment. I literally lose hours daily scouring through pinterest, fashion blogs and my new fave…. Polyvore. So I thought why not put these ‘wasted’ hours to a more productive use… cue: Starting my very own fashion blog.

I’m no stylist or fashion editor… I’m just a girl who has a specific taste and style, who loves fashion, and who is willing to spend her own time posting random blogs about what I wear to whoever wants to play dress ups with me!
