    Thigh Splits + Mimco Yellow

    My boyfriends car had a broken air compressor. We had no air con in the house and it’s swelteringly hot here in the Southern Hemisphere. So what to do on hot summer days? Lay under a tree with a good book or magazine and enjoy the breeze by the river banks. That is exactly what I did on this particular day at New Farm Park. Followed up by some lovely iced coffees on James St and randomly bumping into friends. On hot days… Must. Wear. Breathable. Cotton. I’m wearing a loose plain lilac tank tucked into a thigh-high split black skirt – Extra breathable! I’ve accessorised with a white vintage…

    Petite Style Adventures: One LBD, Two Styles

    It starts with the basics. One little black dress. I added a pair of tights (because it was a little chilly) and some small sized black wedge ankle boots from Pretty-Small-Shoes. These two looks I’m going to show you are completely different styles. One requires a bit of swagger and the other, well, is just safe but lovely.

    Oroton ‘Entourage Tote’

    Totally lusting over Oroton ‘Entourage Tote’ (in hot pink, of course!) which I saw in David Jones. In store the tote comes with a gorgeous black and cream satin scarf, however Oroton online it’s not included. For $AUD 295 I’d want the scarf too! This is the perfect sized tote for petites. It’s got that strong structured look, without being overly huge in size. The handle is a good length for hooking onto your arm or holding onto to. There’s plenty of space for all the essentials like… Purse, mirror, lipstick, Lucas Pawpaw, mints and your smartphone. I think this luxury Australian label has come a long way over the…

    Petite Holiday Outfit

    Holiday’s are the best, aren’t they? But it’s choosing the outfits to pack that can be a struggle. It’s comforting to know in some cases you can always buy the outfits at your holiday destination- I know it’s cheeky but sometimes I can’t help myself.  Hehehe. First thing to think about I guess would be, what are you packing for? In my case I packed for a tropical summer holiday to Leyte, Cebu and Boracay in the Philippines. Oh and did we holiday! When I was in Cebu I did a little bit of shopping at the Ayala mall and made a visit to Topshop! I went straight to the…

    7/8 Pants

    I used to hate shopping for office work pants. too long. too wide. saggy butt. all around terrible fit. The list goes on and you know it… Thankfully I’ve discovered 7/8th length pants, which are in trend for taller ladies. Oh what a saviour! Although they’re meant to end 7/8th of the way down my legs, they fit nicely by my ankles and that’s all I care about. If you live in Australia and need a good place to buy work pants to fit petites, hit up Portmans Pant Bar.  Portmans is Australia’s answer to the UK’s Dorothy Perkins high st store, minus a petite range. So for the meantime, a…

Where? I’m not too sure to be honest. Just out and about and discovering things, like, yellow! Seems to be the first colour I look at lately. I never used to give yellow a go. It has a bit to do with my worries of it looking bad on my skin tone. But, with the right hue of yellow, it can look very darling indeed. I find if I am more tanned this time of year (Aussie summer!!…

    My Island Getaway

    While I was on my down time from doing blogging and stuff, I managed to have a little island getaway in the southern part of Philippines… Boracay. Unfortunately, the weather was not always beautiful like the in postcards, it rained, it poured. I was completely soaked in a white dress, so I ran to the nearest market stall and picked up this dress for 200 peso, equivalent to around $4.50. That made me really happy! market stall dress 200p hat from accessorize J.L x

    Intramuros, Manila

    As part of my holiday I made sure I took some time to learn some history of the Philippines. My family and I went to Intramuros the oldest part of Manila, known as the ‘walled city’ which was built by the Spaniards in the 16th century. There I learned about Jose Rizal, the Philippines national hero, who was falsely charged with rebellion, sedition and formation of illegal societies and was later executed. This year is the 150th anniversary of Jose Rizal’s life. Rizal statue in Luneta The cast of the Rizal play Sitting at Rizal’s table The below picture was taken as I walked along the top part of the…

    Forever 21 + Pretty-Small-Shoes

    “We are now descending into Manila. The weather is cloudy with rain and 36 degrees with 100% HUMIDITY. We hope you enjoyed your flight with us and thank you for choosing Cathay Pacific.” Ah… It is indeed hot and sticky here in the Philippines. But I love it here! Meeting up with family, staying at a lovely hot-spring resort and shopping. OHH the shopping is great!! There are plenty of bargains and lots of brands. I’ve never been to Forever 21, so I was excited to see it in SM Makati. Found a few cute outfit pieces. I’m wearing a plain navy blue top tucked into floral print skirt, both…
