Back to Basics

So lately I've been thinking my wardrobe needs a little taming. For a while now I've been a bit (okay, a lot) obsessed with items that are a touch wacky - crazy cuts, crazy prints, crazy colours. If people were staring, my outfit was a success.

But in all the craziness, things got kind of messy. There's nothing wrong with looking a little out-there, but making sure there's a certain level of polish to an outfit makes all the difference.

To that end, I went in search of sophisticated yet simple designs - clean lines, blacks, whites, basics. And this is what I found.

As much as a love a good print clash, sometimes you just need simple pieces to pair with those outrageous prints so they can really pop. I'm looking forward to seeing what new life these basics can breathe in to my wackier wardrobe veterans!


  1. Obsessed with the heels, they look very Zara-esque. And I can't believe there's nothing like the Shoreditch Vintage Fair in Brisbane - seriously? Gimme your address and I'll send you a pair of vintage sunnies :P

    1. They do! If they had a Zara in Brissy I'd probably spend far to much time browsing in there.
      We do have the occasional vintage fair but vintage and second hand here is nothing compared what it's like in Europe! An that's so sweet of you put i couldn't possibly let you send me gifts from across the globe!

  2. Nice blog!
