If there is one thing I love about my current wardrobe is that it is full of fun colours and prints. I have always loved bright colours, so when I first laid my eyes on the Connie dress from Voodoo Vixen, I knew that the novelty print would be the perfect addition to my wardrobe. Not only is the print gorgeous but the fit and fabric make this style beautiful to wear.
One of my favourite features of the Connie Dress is the neckline – I am not normally someone who likes to have a higher neckline, but the criss-cross front is a feature I really like on this style. It meant not having to wear a necklace and leaving the focus on the print!
The dress comes with a matching belt but I decided to add a pop of gloss with my patent bow belt, available from my store. I love these belts as they really bring an outfit together!
This is the first of a series of posts for Voodoo Vixen – I love this brand and I am so excited to share it with you all!
There’s no denying that I have been a slack writer, and I have been terrible at sharing my life for the past few months/year.
But there is something I need to share with you, and it’s about denim.
A few months ago Australian retailer Autograph contacted me about reviewing their new range of denim. At the time, I was extremely excited as I was due for some new jeans but I’ve always struggled to find a good pair to fit. I jumped at the chance and when the deadline to post came, I decided to not just give you a “post” but I decided to give them a real, true review.
Lately, I have become obsessed with perfume. I am not normally someone who needs to change my scent: I usually grab a bottle of something cute and girly and under $40 at my local chemist to have in my bag for at work. Throughout the years I’ve always been a fan of the celebrity fragrances
I saw the advert and I knew I wanted to attend.
There was no doubt that I was going to miss 3 hours of teasing, red lipstick and hair spray with the Youtube and pinup sensation Cherry Dollface. Armed with my camera and hoping my memory would hold all of the information (I also had a notebook!), I sat in on the first session that kicked off Catfight Collections’s Charlestown Square Cherry Dollface sessions. My class was on a Thursday night, with only around 19 ladies. We were all excited to attend, learn and we all had lots of questions!
Cherry Dollface was simply a wonderful teacher. Not only is she funny and entertaining, she also simplified & broke up complicated steps for everyone. She made victory rolls (start) to make sense for me, and some of her tips and tricks for eye makeup were new for me. If you ever have the chance, step in to one of her classes and you will see why I attended. It was a great boost to my inspiration levels.
Throughout the sessions, Cherry used some gorgeous products that I later purchased from the Bomber Betty cosmetic brand. I cannot recommend this brand for an amazing eyeliner, and I will be sharing my experience with it on the blog very soon. It is seriously the BEST eyeliner I’ve used and have been using non-stop since buying!
Here are a few tips that I have been using since the session, maybe they will work for you too!
The weather here in Sydney, Australia has begun to cool down and it’s time to start layering. For me, this is a new way of styling.
For many years I’ve opted for oversized and shapeless garments that held no flattering qualities whatsoever. This year I am learning, taking little steps to showcase my body in ways that are vintage, retro and yet still practical.
I can simplify this down to adding soft, fine knits to my outfit and adding layers under tops to keep the chill at bay! I am living in this simply, yet ever so versatile bolero from plus-size retailer City Chic. It’s long sleeves and cropped style mean it works well over my full dresses, but it can easily be worn with a top or peplum over jeans or skirts.
