A New Aje

Last week I was invited to attend the VIP Launch Party for the new Aje store at Westfield Carindale.

Aje is fast becoming one of my favourite labels. All of their pieces are so delicately crafted with amazing attention to fine details, like their signature hand sewn sequin designs. A little piece of Aje will cost you a pretty penny but it's well worth it, they're definitely investment pieces - they're high quality and stunning wardrobe classics you'll keep coming back to.

For the night I decided to wear my own little Aje treasure, the gorgeous corsair sequinned top (old season but you can still find it online at Maximillia and Joy Hysteric), which I'm finding hard to resist wearing every time I go out.

The night consisted of a little instore party complete with live music, punch, photographers, a visit from the designers, and a VIP discount for all the Aje lovers in attendance! I tried on a few of their new pieces and am now totally lusting over the roaming free skirt and the scarlet cropped top. Definitely adding them to the Christmas wishlist.

Topshop Top Picks: Brisbane Store Opening

Topshop Top Picks: Brisbane Store Opening

When I stepped into Topshop and Topman's Oxford Circle flagship store in London while I was travelling last year, I swear my world changed.
It was heaven. Levels upon levels upon levels of heaven.
There was so much to-die-for stock I think I spent nearly 6 hours in there. 

Topshop is an all-time fave for me because they're constantly on the cutting edge of the trends and make so many out-there but totally wearable pieces AND I can actually afford them!

I'm currently obsessing over anything and everything pale blue, pale pink, silver, sequinned, mesh or marabou feathers, and as you can see, Topshop totally has me covered.

So I couldn't be more excited that
Topshop and Topman are finally coming to BRISBANE!
To top it off, it'll be the biggest store in Australia. YAY!

I've picked out my current Topshop faves, ready for opening day, and so should you!

Get excited Brisbane!
Bring on December 5th!

Beachy Keen

Uni is finally over for the year and the Queensland sun is unrelenting, so I am super keen to make another trip to the beach. Adding to my yearning for the beach is my new bikini! I ordered this super cute set courtesy of and I am in love with them because...

(1) I designed them myself!

Well, sort of. The site has something like 50 different styles of bikini tops, bottoms, and one-pieces to choose from and you get to decide which fab fabrics you want for each section on each piece! I took the opportunity to go a little crazy and went with a daring tiger print and gingham combo which I think is 100% Pip.

(2) They are a super comfy perfect fit!

Every order is custom made so you can enter your exact measurements and they will tailor them to fit just right, which is perfect if you're anything like me and have a booty that is a size or two bigger than your waist. Better yet, they guarantee the perfect fit, so if it's not quite right they will arrange to pick it up and make adjustments! Mine weren't quite firm enough at the waist but they sent me back a better fit with no problems which was amazing!

Sadly, so far this pair has only seen the sun via my bedroom window but I'm hoping to make it to the beach early next week so beach pics will follow!

Update: the weather didn't turn out to be very beachy that week but I did end wearing them on my trip to Wet'n'Wild!
Check out the pics here!

I'm particularly in love with my new fluffy earrings which I made myself with just earring hooks, a bit of thread, and pre-made marabou feather 'puffs' (they're actually a donut shape so you can thread right through the middle) from MarabouBoa's Etsy store. Mine are in the colour 'Light Baby Blue'.
