What have I fallen in-love with this winter season (apart from my spunky boyfriend)? Oh-so-much!

  • Over-sized Knits: Oh-so-comfy! and not to mention warm on those chilly winter mornings. I have a cute brown knit cardi with to-your-elbow winged sleeves. The shorter sleeves may not be too practical, but they sure do look great. I team it with a black long-sleeve top underneath and synch it in with a wide waist belt.
  • Silk Blouses: They spunk up any outfit. And what I love about them is how they move with the flow. Dress them up or dress them down, play the field sisters!
  • Leather Jackets: I must admit, I am still on the look out for that jacket (and I will know it when I see it), but the leather jacket is this seasons ultimate buy. They’re expensive, but totally worth it! And chances are they’ll out last you!
What is your favourite buy this season? Or what do you have your eye on?

Wrapped! Sunday, Jun 15 2008 

One thing I love about these cold winter days is the excuse to snuggle with a cute boy. However, if there isn’t a cute boy within your 50 metre range, then don’t panic. Wrapping yourself in a thick warm scarf, an adorable beanie and matching gloves to boot will be a rewarding substitute.

One of my fave scarves ever is this beautiful deep orange endless knit scarf from one of my most adored boutiques, Witchery, for just $39.95(AU). It is fabulously thick and warm, and the endless design is a winner as I can chuck it around my neck without having two awkward ends hanging limp. It is one of those throw-on items that never looks bad and it doesn’t take an hour just to get it sitting right, not to mention adjusting it silly through out the day. It is also available in black, almond or grey if orange isn’t your most flattering colour (I love this orange because it livens up a dull dark winter outfit and gives a glow to my less tanned winter skin).

Another New Addiction Begins Friday, Apr 25 2008

I am loving this year’s winter fashion, from thick heavy scarves and trench coats to bright stockings and black mini skirts. There’s something out there to suit everybody’s style. My Dad recently came back from New York on a business trip with this gorgeous Versace washed linen jacket in beige, as a ‘small gift’ ($2095.00US). I was just stoked, as he usually refrains from buying me expensive items like these. He believes that “fashion goes out just as fast as it comes in”, which is very true. Though, I do believe that this is a classic jacket which can be worn on many occasions:
– Business: Team it up with a matching linen pencil skirt and a white shirt, of course with a pair of sexy black Sachi heels.
– Casual (like when I wear it to university): For the cold chilled days, team it up with a high-neck jumper, a wrapped knitted scarf, a pair of skinny jeans and knee-high boots.
– Partying: Perfect for wearing over the top of a cute dress for those cold nights out and about.
It flatters the figure with its waist-belt and has amazing style with features such as the folded sleeves and matching beige buttons. I can not wait till it gets cold enough to wear!
