Lace Fashion Trend

Lace doesn’t have to be all about girly, white a-line skirts (not that there is anything wrong with that!). I acknowledge my latest fascination with lace does come from my inner girly-girl who likes floral prints, lace trim and pink everything, but lace is so on-trend right now that you can wear it in a way that reflects your personal style, whatever that may be. The great thing with lace is that it adds an element of texture to an outfit. So, for example, let’s say you won’t wear anything but black clothes (hands up if that’s you!), adding a touch of lace with some vegan leather will make your outfit look more like Angelina Jolie and less like a M.A.C sales assistant.  Continue Reading

Last week I got a lovely note from gorgeous blogger Jasmine from Red Lipstick Stains.

Hi Kimberly,

I’ll be attending my Year 10 formal in August and need some beauty and fashion ideas from an expert! 😉

I’ve attached a photo of the exact dress I’ll be wearing, except mine will be in a sea blue! What shoes and clutch do you reckon would go best with the dress? Also, I’m thinking of wearing a glamourous statement necklace and some chunky bracelets, would gold or silver look better? I don’t think I go well with silver, though!

Another thing is, I am stuck with makeup and hair ideas! I’m not a fan of anything too bright or dark 🙂 would an updo or side swept loose curls look better?

Lastly, nails! I have absolutely no idea what I should do for nails. Any ideas for me?

XO Jasmine

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!

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

I am really excited about Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia (MBFWA) Spring Summer 2012-13, which starts tomorrow! This year I will be making a serious effort with my outfits but I will tell you more on that a little later. One reason I am super happy is because I have some awesome new jewellery from Disney Couture to wear.

The first time I ever experienced Disney Couture was when my mother bought me a Tinkerbell necklace for my birthday a few years ago. I love her so much and ever since I have wanted more and more items from Disney Couture. If you haven’t seen the brand before, they make adorable jewellery based completely on the Disney franchise. If you follow me on Pinterest, you have probably seen me pin quite a few items to My Style board.

Today I am going to show you the two items I am lucky to be adding to my wardrobe during Fashion Week this year.  Continue Reading

Deciem NIOD Copper Amino Isolate Serum

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
