Monday Mixes

It's Monday it's Monday #sigh

I have swapped Thoms Dux to Aldi and Cadbury to a celery stick just to fulfill my addiction this week. This Monday Mixes outfit picks compliment my bank account this week (damn fortnightly pay).  I have justified my spending by only buying bargains for no other purpose but "Mum they were on sale".

Firstly if you don't know now you will know my appreciation for leatherette this coming season. Not only is Leatherette cheaper than the real thang but think about saving the animals (I sound like an animals rights ambassador).

These leather look Leggings are the hottest trend in fast fashion. The gathered knee cap and detailing are more than just any plain legging, they create style and chic even if you are spending the day shopping or pop heels on for Friday night drinks.You can choose between black and burgundy (this season's colour trend). I cannot believe these are from Dotti and are so cheap!!  

Dotti - Magic motorcycle leggings $39.95

 As red shines brighter than a diamond from far, I lured into this leatherette peplum from Bardot. This accentuates your waist and leaves you with a flattering structure.

Bardot - Leatherette Peplum $30

Keeping with the red colour scheme, this burgundy coat with fur is exactly what you need in your wardrobe for this Autumn. Not only is this colour a hot trend this season but it is practical for our weather conditions. This boyfriend coat is perfect for layers underneath.

Miss Guided - Edlyn Fur Coat $97.78

I am getting into printed pants lately and nothing is more flattering than patterns on pants for girls who have some hips but not Kim Kardashian ones. These feel silky and loose fit work best with those who have problem areas. These Glassons Scarf Print Trousers are also high waisted which will accentuate the waist and look expensive, and if you sign up online you get 20% off your first order. You know what that means CHA CHING!

Glassons - Scarf Print Trousers $49.95

Who said Neon will go out? With that summer glow still hanging on, these shorts will look amaze! I finally got hold of these babies and I cannot wait to wear these to death. These textured shorts will look as good as new even next Summer!

Mossman - The Hunny Bunny shorts $30

This second item from none other than Mossman (surprise surprise) is again a stand out piece. Just because the colours are summery doesn't mean you can't rock it out this season. This silk fabric embodies a fitted bodice and cinches at the waist (another accentuating piece) with a pleated skirt. Mossman you never seem to disappoint me or my bank account.

Mossman - Light and Shade Tunic - Aqua Dress $69.95
If you have the space vibe then this metallic cropped tee will get you ready for take off. This box structure top has drop shoulders and curved notch sides.

Asos - Sweatshirt in Foil $49.27

My accessories are the last add on to my perfect outfit. This original cuff displays Czech crystals and metal detailing. I can wear this with any outfit day and night. I love that Olga Berg has not only glamorised with evening bags but have also incorporated jewellery to complete an outfit.

Olga Berg - The Crystal Adorned Cuff $69.95 (From the Highpoint Store)

Lastly to sum up the bargain shopping and admiring this week, who can go past on a faux leather bag that looks as good as a real one without the price tag. I love that Steve Madden has envisioned a woman whose life is in her bag. This bag comes in black and sand and can be used for gym, shopping, overnight. Do I really need an excuse?!

Steve Madden - Bamber $69.95

Good luck bargain shopping xx

Monday Mixes

Another Monday and what a week to start my choices of the week on. It's L'oreal fashion week for those who are hiding in a cave. I am so excited to be going on Wednesday night, so stay tuned for updates then.

Kicking off my first and must have for what I have felt over the last 2 days in Melbourne, WINTER are these amaze boots. This winter metal detailing has moved from the toe to the heel. The trend gives the classic leather boot a space-age spin. The effect is dramatic, yet easy to wear and style. Wear a pair of metallic-heeled pumps to add interest to a basic outfit. Comon pay day!

Mi Piaci - Rapture Ankle Boots $210

There was something about these shorts, they had me at hello! Literally, they were the first item merchandised when I walked into Topshop. These tailored short, with side pockets reminded me of Zimmermann and for fraction of the price so it would be crazy to walk away from them. I am already getting excited to wear them with tights and my new metallic heel ankle boots. Bottom outfit check!

TopShop - Mono Print Shorts $70

A Peplum piece like a clingy best friend is going to follow you whether you like it or not so why not embrace it. It also comes with benefits, it accentuates your waistline and can be worn with or without a belt.
This winter a knit piece by Witchery features a high crew neckline, peplum hem and long skinny sleeves.

Witchery - Knitted Peplum Top $99.95

 My Infatuation for leather is now a sickening but with "vegan" leather I don't feel so bad. This jagged skirt in black with an asymmetrical hemline on the front and back sold out in one week you now have to pre-sale, and you know what they say about wanting what you can't have!!!!!! I WANT NOWWWWWWW

Runway Scout - Premonition watch this skirt $89

 A playsuit is a must for winter. you can dress it up with with heels or even wear stockings and boots for those rugged up days. This sleeveless black playsuit has a contrast felt print on the bodice.

LittleLace - Finders Keepers Tiny Dancer Playsuit $145

You have just got to have the Hunt No More Criss Cross Skirt. Look at this amazing print and zip detail. The tailored look of this skirt is perfect for a day in the office then spiced up for a night on the town. Why aren't I allowed a credit card again?

Market HQ - Criss Cross Skirt $99

With any of the above outfits, one accessory can be the finished product. This week that product is a leather cap. It will add spunk to any occasion, okay maybe don't wear it out clubbing :P

Kookai - Polo Leather Cap $60

I won free shoes, I love you Steve Madden

What I thought was just a trip to the toilet I returned with my first essential for my winter wardrobe (oh and I never make it to the toilet, woops).

As if the hype of the $10000000000000000000000 redevelopment of highpoint wasn't enough to convince me, but the spinning of the wheel at Steve Madden, who wouldn't say no to an incentive to shop?!
 The options were extensive, ranging from 10, 15, 30, 40 even 50% off but today was my lucky day or perhaps god finally felt the need to support my addition (I'll take any),  the wheel stopped at the 'free shoes' option (valued upto $150) and then I entered a candy store.

The candy store showcased spikes, studs, rhinestones, leather and lots of colour, YUM!
My eyes strongly drew to this fierce studded ankle boot. The low cone-shaped heel and me exchanged looks and yep they were mine!

Go check out Steve Madden's new highpoint store and have a spin on the wheel because you'll never know what you'll be walking out with!

Check out the website just so you can memorise the pair of shoes you'll grab when you spin that wheel.

 May see you there (again :s)   x
