World Square 9 to 9 Sale event

In the spirit of 30 days of Beauty and Fashion month that started in Sydney this September, World Square partnered with Shop Til You Drop magazine and hosted a fun shopping event with exclusive one day only discounts, free entertainment and more.  I wanted to check out the event so I went there with my partner after work. It was a decent event with a VIP area for people to enjoy live entertainment by contestants from The Voice, free unlimited drinks and food.

Style icon - Iris Afpel

Recently I came across something very interesting or rather say someone very interesting, Iris Afpel; a 91 year old American fashionista. Wikipedia describes her as an American businesswoman, interior designer, and fashion icon but she describes herself as the world's oldest living teenager. Vibrant, flamboyant and full of life, she indeed is like a teenager and her style truly depicts her personality. As I came to know about her, I wanted to know more and more about her and as I did, I totally fell in love with her personality and of course, her style. She is such a strong and inspiring personality and at 91; she beats any other young fashionista by leaps and bounds.

Vogue Fashion Night Out 2012 - an update

Last Thursday, (I know I'm really late with my updates!) Sydney witnessed its 3rd annual Vogue fashion night out (VFNO), a night for shopping, fashion, fun and freebies! I have been attending this event ever since it started and this year was no difference. In fact, I was really looking forward to this year's event as it came up with a new theme with ' Fashion Meets Music ' featuring celebrity songstresses such as Megan Washington, Jessica Mauboy and top few The Voice '12 contestants performing at different venues throughout CBD. I work in CDB so I was already feeling the excitement in the streets as the decorations and preparation commenced from early hours in the afternoon. As soon as I finished my work, I headed towards Martin Place where Miranda Kerr made an appearance at a pop-up store for Kora Organics skincare line. As always she looked million bucks and I loved the floral print dress she wore. As for myself, I wore an animal print black & white shift dress from Zara and matching pumps. To add some colour to my black and white outfit, I added  necklace with neon accents and a neon belt that did a great job cinching my waist and give this rather plain dress some shape.

It was a fun night as me and my girlfriends hoped from one store to the other in search of best bargains, best booze and the best fashion stalking.

The floral print dress

Sign of spring is when flowers start to blossom and that truth holds itself for spring fashion as well. Although floral trend for spring seems to be a no brainer, this season the trend seems to have reached a new height. From bold and bright big prints to pastel and dainty prints, we are seeing floral everywhere; celebrities, runways and on streets. In the spirit of this trend, I took out some of my floral dresses (I already have few in my closets from previous years) and wore one of them during a cultural festival couple of days ago. I paired my dress with dark colors i.e. with burgundy denim jacket (styled here) and black tights, which kind of screams fall rather than spring, maybe I am not ready to give up on those rich and deep fall colors yet. For shoes, I went with my favorite nude ankle booties (styled here and here) and finished off the look with lots of wooden bangles for that bohemian feel. Though floral prints on this dress have dark colors and the background itself is brownish grey, I'm looking forward to style it to create more spring appropriate looks. Hopefully the weather gets warmer in coming days and the next time I wear it, I won't need any tights or boots. Till then, stay stylish!

Hello Spring!

Spring, my most favourite season has finally arrived in Sydney today. Though the weather was not as good and warm as expected, hope it gets better in coming days. I cannot wait to do some posts on spring/summer fashion, featuring current trends, styles and much more. For now, I just wanted to share quick news which is bit personal and has very little to do with fashion/style but, I felt like sharing here in my blog anyways.
