Recently, I was gifted some beautiful pieces from BlackMilk Clothing’s upcoming collection ‘Utopia’, which drops tomorrow (Tuesday 7th August, 7AM AEST). Leggings, shorts, and a skirt all in the same fabric – an eye-catching holographic velvet, printed with crystal geodes. Receiving these gorgeous matching pieces presented me with the perfect opportunity to style some co-ordinated outfits to give examples of how to wear the one print in three different ways… Read on below to see three different incarnations of this lovely fabric (and take a peek at the rest of the dreamy collection on BlackMilk’s website HERE)!
This week I was fortunate enough to find myself in Melbourne at the same time as ‘The House of Dior’ exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. I’d seen details of the exhibition online earlier in the year, and lamented the fact that it wasn’t coming to Perth, as it was an exclusive collaboration between NGV and Dior to celebrate the houses seventieth anniversary. So I was super thrilled that I ended up in Melbourne for a few days with my partner Alex while it was open, so I didn’t miss seeing it!
There was so many beautiful pieces (over 140 designs!), all arranged in the most magical way… Walking through the gallery amongst all of the elaborate couture garments was a very special moment for me, and something I feel so lucky to have experienced. Alex really enjoyed the exhibition too despite him not being a total fashion lover like me, so if you have a boyfriend/partner/friend who isn’t necessarily into fashion it’s definitely still something they will find interesting to check out! I snapped lots of photos while I was there to share with you all, you can take a peek at them below 🙂
One of the most common things I hear through my social media and in everyday life is variations of the phrase “I wish I could dress colourfully too!”. I always encourage people to dress how they want and have fun with fashion, although from these conversations I get the impression that when wanting to change your style it can be hard to know where to start. So I thought it might be useful to some of you if I put together a blog post with my top tips on how to start introducing colour into your own personal style!
