Brighten Up Your Wardrobe! OOTD

I love the outfit of the day concept also known as “OOTD” posts – the initial outfit idea, putting the outfit together, photographing and sharing it with y’all! It’s something I love to do on all of my social media platforms particularly Instagram and I want to showcase it more here and actually talk through the outfits because not only do I love sharing my outfits but I also love reading outfits of the day posts. I hope you enjoy these two very different looks; I had a lot of fun styling my Atomic Tote and I hope you can get a little bit of inspiration!

Flamingo Border Tea Dress – Lady V London
My first outfit came to me as soon as I knew my Sun Jellies Atomic Tote in yellow was coming my way (I am OBSESSED) – SPRING. I wanted as many spring like colours as possible so as always I purchased a Lady V London dress and this time I went with the Flamingo Tea Dress in pink dress this time from local shop Kabella Baby. First off this dress is amazing and I have wanted it since its release; not only are the colours/print incredible & striking, it has pockets AND it’s also made out of 96% Polyester / 4% Elastine so you don’t have to iron it. I repeat you do NOT have to iron this dress before wear… I am so over ironing dresses and I’ve been able to throw this dress in my bag and travel with it without it creasing (a miracle)! I also have been loving brooches/pins just to add a little detail to an outfit and with this one I am wearing my current obsessions “RESTING BABE FACE”  by Oh You Fox and my fav pink doughnut brooch by Bel Air Baby – I love them so much!

Ascot Swing Dress in Cobalt Blue – The Pretty Dress Company
I spoke about this dress in my blog post from last week and on that occasion I had dressed it up now it was time for me tone it down a little. I was only heading to the supermarket so I wanted something that looked good, I could wear my hair down with and didn’t need too many accessories. And the Ascot Swing Dress in Cobalt Blue by The Pretty Dress Company (bought at Rita Sue Clothing) was the perfect fit AND it went well with my Sun Jellies Atomic Tote which I was bringing along on my supermarket trip as it carries heaps and the handles don’t hurt my hands! Again the material is 63% Polyester, 32% Viscose, 5% Spandex which makes it SUPER comfortable and I’m only interested in clothes that are comfortable and I don’t have to iron – hurrah!

Thanks for the read – that’s two blog posts in a row! Can you believe it?! I will hopefully have a third post up next week it all depends on life stuff but I can promise you that I am working on a SERIOUSLY cool project at the moment (photos to come)!

A Pin-up Christmas Outfit Guide – The Lindy Bop Edition!

This is just a general guide filled with Christmas goods from Lindy Bop; a lot of green and A LOT of red. It’s so close to Christmas now it’s okay to be covered head to toe in red and green right? I want to look like a candy cane for at least 2 weeks of December and Lindy Bop has really fulfilled this dream of mine. Sorry in advance to all my readers that don’t get this Christmas obsession; just think of it as a red & green pin up outfit suggestions?

“MY HAIR IS FULL OF SECRETS”-VIXEN BY MICHELINE PITT

Never in my life did I think I would have the chance to own something created by one of my favourite designers Micheline Pitt so when Two Lippy Ladies approached me earlier in the year I JUMPED at the chance! I’ve been a huge lover of PUG but with shipping costs and the markup from retailers I found myself only looking rather than owning- with the new Vixen line I feel it will be very different. Not only do The Two Lippy Ladies have free shipping they also don’t have huge markups so you can actually afford pieces and they’re bringing an AWESOME brand to New Zealand (we rarely get the good stuff here) also stocking pretty much all of the pieces (once they’re available) so no one misses out! You can’t beat that.
