The Styleless Diaries full logo with diary

It has been a while since I last discussed the state of my wardrobe and sense of style. Fashion isn’t my thing and that is exactly why I created The Styleless Diaries. I kind of need to have a sense of style for my job as a beauty blogger because I go to lots of lovely events and meet with lots of people from brands and public relations agencies (all of which dress fabulously!), but it is such a foreign concept to me. How does one put together a fashionable outfit and not look like a mess?

Well, over the past year I have been trying REALLY hard to buy good, not-too-trendy pieces. Over the past 8 months I have been slowly culling my wardrobe of all the items I can’t/won’t/shouldn’t wear but it has left me with very little to wear … well that and the staggering amount of weight I have put on.

My goal during this time has been to rebuild a solid wardrobe containing classic, wearable pieces that make me look good no matter how they are styled. I wanted good quality items that will be versatile enough for any occasion. I think I did ok but I want to show you my recent purchases in hope you can help me. All of these were bought during 2012 and obviously before my new vegan lifestyle so there are some items I would definitely not purchase now, however, I feel like disposing of them would actually mean that the animals who gave to create those items were in vain. This is the reason I am not getting rid of any items I already own but I most definitely will not be buying any new animal product items moving forward.

Here they are, my latest fashion purchases:  Continue Reading

If you are wondering what happened to Day 4, well good on you, that is very observant! Unfortunately on Day 4 I was so exhausted I slept through my alarm and didn’t wake up until the late afternoon. Which meant I happened to have missed all my shows for that day. Big boo boo. So we are just skipping over that failure and on to Day 5 ….

It was finally Friday, it had been a long week and the day called for something much more simple. Natasa Colo from Secret Diary Of A Tall Girl (my stylist for the week) insisted that a LBD is the only way to go. Luckily I had just bought one!

Did you see my Day 1 outfit? Well, if you missed it make sure you jump back and check it out before seeing this one. Once again my second outfit was styled by Natasa Colo from Secret Diary Of A Tall Girl, who had free reign of my limited closet to compile this look. Of course she styled it with heels but by day 2 my feet (which are so used to flats now they don’t know how to wear heels for more than 30 minutes) were aching. So forgive the use of flats. I do realise the outfit would look 10 times better with heels.

This year I vowed to make a bigger effort in what I wore to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA), because frankly I don’t think I did a good enough job last year. I bought new dressess, had lots of new accessories I got for my birthday (post about that to go up soon!) and a secret weapon called Natasa. Natasa Colo is a stylist extraordinaire and she is also the blogger behind Secret Diary Of A Tall Girl.I challenged her to piece together 5 days worth of looks from my mess of a closet.

My Outfit

  • Cue dress
  • Bardot blazer
  • Urban Soul heels
  • Playboy bag
  • Tiffany & Co necklace
  • Forever 21 ring
  • Disney Couture cuff

and here is what she came up with ….  Continue Reading

Tangle Teezer and Dessata hairbrushes

Detangling hairbrushes are available from just about everywhere now but when it comes to trusted brands there are a few to choose from. In this post I’ve got Tangle Teezer vs Dessata in a battle of the detangling brushes. Both are priced almost identically (here in Australian anyway) so which brush is worth your dollars?

For this battle I’ve selected the Tangle Teezer The Original to go up against the Dessata Maxi Detangling Brush. I own three Tangle Teezer brushes – The Original, Compact Styler and Aqua Splash – but for this post I’m comparing The Original as it’s the most popular model. Read on to find out which might be the best detangling brush for you.  Continue Reading
