So what does one of my really, casual outfits look like? Well, I’m not talking about really, really casual which would be trackies and some baggy jumper. I’m also not talking about really, really, really casual which I deem to be my pajamas. I’m just talking about something really easy I wear on say, the weekend to do nothing much :) Well! Here’s a good example. On the weekend before MBFWA, Jess, Yenny, Marg & I went for impromptu brunch and I went in this really comfy outfit. This vintage dress is many sizes too big for me so it hangs loosely and this mustard jumper has a nice baggy fit. I paired this with one of my handmade headbands, a pop of pink in my poodle print socks and my trust Topshop boots which I am pretty much wearing most days, these days. MBFWA was the first time I got to properly meet the other FELLT girls, given I had been in my own little {Melbourne} bubble most of the time prior to this!

I’ve been sort of really into this ‘sports luxe’ trend for a few months now, well, pretty much ever since round 3 of the ASOS Future Stylist competition when we had to style a sports inspired look. So when I picked up this vintage (!!!) spray jacket at the local markets I was more than impressed with myself. But I had no idea what to wear it with. It seems that this is always the case for me these days – buying things I like but have no idea to wear with. Oh and you probably know how the story goes now.. all of my clothes ended up on my floor during a period of immense ‘nothing to wear’ frustration, only to have things suddenly look coherent on my floorboards and then subsequently be translated into an outfit.. a.k.a. this outfit. I guess I needed something to wear on the day of my flight to Sydney and I wanted something to wear that was warm and comfortable. {Fast fact: I wore a cape coat that made out of a bath towel like material on my 27 hr flight to London and was so happy with my choice}. I flipped through my wardrobe, past heavy wool coats that were so restricting in their arm movement, past my delicate lace and sequin pieces (uh oh, might just pull something whilst lugging around my huge suitcase) and then finally landed past this somewhat questionable piece. I was so determined to incorporate it into my outfit, given it’s oversized, roomy fit, but yet I had nothing to wear with it. Anyway I don’t know what happened but I ended up coming up with this and I quite like the muted pastel colour palette, which nicely fit the theme of our FELLT launch party at an industrial looking studio :)

I have always loved making videos, ever since my high school days where I used to take the subject media studies. Outfit videos have always been something that I have loved and wanted to do but not having a video camera or camera that does video always proved to be a big roadblock. But alas, this problem has now been solved and I hereby present to you, my first ever outfit video to accompany my usual outfit posts :) I really love the concept of integrating video into my blog as I feel like it adds an extra dimension and an element of realness and spontaneity to accompany the photos. In fact, I’ve already got quite a few clips lined up from my trip to London as well as many more fashion week ones that I am busy editing at this very moment.  Jess of Jess Loves Fred helped me film this video and I quickly gave it an edit and then spent almost 5 hours attempting to upload the silly thing onto Youtube. Hm. I hope you guys like it! I’m wearing a lovely red flare skirt borrowed from Marg (I should really get something like this for myself) paired with a boho inspired floral shirt I picked up in London. These Matiko wedges have the coolest platform heel. The bottom is a layer of wood followed by a slice of shiny reflective mirror. When I first bought them, I had no idea what I wanted to wear them with but as soon as I saw that shiny metallic heel I just knew I had to have them. So they’ve actually sat in my wardrobe for almost five months now before I finally brought them out and took them out for a spin :)
