My Style Diary - There's no place like home...

Hello :)

I like to think of these as my "Dorothy shoes".  I always wanted a pair of Ruby Slippers when I was little, and was thrilled when I found these ones a few years ago from Marie Claire.  I'm slightly undecided though about whether I think the red top and shoes is too matchy-matchy, or if I do in fact like it. What do you think?

Speaking of The Wizard of Oz, I'm actually going to my old school's production of it in 2 weeks, which I'm quite excited about. I might just have to pull out my ruby slippers for that too!

I hope you're having a lovely Sunday

Love Lauren

My Style Diary - Don't you see the starlight?

Heya :)

This is one of my favourite tops from Country Road, and I don't think it's made an appearance in a blog post before. My Dad says it looks like "Christmas wrapping paper" ... and I guess he's right in a way... but that's okay with me! I love how the stars add a little fun, but the silky fabric and style is quite dressy (and work appropriate which is a bonus!). The only problem I have with it is that it gets creased so easily! I'll iron it, and about 15 minutes after I've put it on it's all crumpled again! Oh well :)

Moving down, these jeans are also a new favourite. They're from Calvin Klein, and I had my eye on them for ages before I finally nabbed them on sale for 50% off! Calvin Klein jeans, particularly the "Body"  ones are my absolute favourites, because they're so comfy. They really are the best, and definitely worth the splurge (but being the bargain hunter I am, I always wait for the sales!)

Anyway...that's it for today :)

Lots of Love

My Style Diary - No Room for the Blues

Last weekend, Tom, my family and I headed down south for a bit of a getaway. It's so beautiful and relaxing down there - going for bush walks, getting cozy in front of the fire, feasting on yummy cheese fondue! 

Weekends in the country call for warm, comfortable, snuggly clothes - and this jumper and scarf are just that. I love cable knit jumpers - I think they look so cozy and classic - particularly in this cornflower blue colour.

I hope that you're having a great weekend!

Currently on my Wish List...

Currently on my Wish List 1

Just a few things that I'm currently lusting after...

1. Forever New "Evie Vintage Maxi Skirt"
Such a lovely blush pink colour

2. Calvin Klein Watch
I've been on the lookout for a rose gold watch for quite some time now, but nothing ever really caught my eye... until today. I caught a glimpse of this beauty while I was in CK (taking advantage of their 40% off jeans sale), and it was love at first sight. I absolutely love the unique cut-out design, and the fact that it is so sleek and simple. If only my birthday hadn't already passed! 

3. Thomas Sabo Rose Gold Heart Pendant 
What can I say...I'm a bit obsessed with Thomas Sabo...

4. Forever New "Elanie Diamante Georgette Dress"
This may not look like much in the picture, but on, it's the perfect "little black dress with a twist". So sparkly!

5. Hourglass "Radiant Light" Lighting Powder 
Supposedly these use "groundbreaking photo-luminescent technology to capture, diffuse and soften surrounding light". I'm not sure about that, but I do know that I was very tempted to purchase it when the girl at Mecca put it on me... It gives a gorgeous but subtle bronze-y glow. 

For now I will try to resist... Will power Lauren will power!!

What's on your wish list at the moment?


Great Gatsby - Sparkles, Pearls and Bow heels!

Heya :)

A few weeks ago I went to a Great Gatsby themed 21st, and I had so much fun planning my costume and getting all dressed up! I hadn't been to a Costume Party in quite some time, and it was the perfect opportunity to rummage through my wardrobe and jewellery box and pull out all those sparkly bits and bobs that I rarely get a chance to wear in "real life". (Well... I do wear them...but there's something fun about being able to pile on the accessories,  and not worry about being over the top!) 

Speaking of The Great Gatsby - I think Baz Luhrmann did an amazing job with the new movie. Visually, it's just stunning, and the soundtrack is great too. I quite enjoyed the interesting blend of the modern music with the 1920's setting. It was a very "Baz Luhrmann" kind of film - very dramatic and theatrical. I'm a huge fan of his movies (Moulin Rouge! is my favourite movie of all time), and this one didn't disappoint!

What did you think of the movie?

Lots of Love

My Style Diary - Pink and Gold

Continuing my obsession with pink, I picked up this jumper a couple of weeks ago, and I have pretty much worn it constantly! (I loved it so much I also bought it in blue!) It's just so cozy and colourful, the perfect way to brighten up a cold wintery day... although to tell you the truth it hasn't really been all that wintery in perth - it's been chilly but we've had the most beautiful sunny days. We really are so lucky here!

Love Lauren
