White on white

Skirt by Sass & Bide | Blouse by Sportsgirl | Shoes by Joanne Mercer | Watch by Michael Kors | Nail Colour by Essie in Fiji

I specifically bought this gorgeous skirt and sleeky blouse to wear to my birthday cocktail party a couple of weeks ago but I ended up making a last minute outfit change due to the summer heatwave Canberra was experiencing. I planned on doing a lot of dancing at my party and in the heat of approx. 30 degrees celsius at 9pm I didn't want to sweat my butt off!

Although I didn't get to wear this outfit for my birthday I did get to take outfit photos for my blog!

I actually love all of these looks and can't pick a worst dressed look from this year's BAFTA Awards so let's get straight to the BEST dressed!

For me, best dressed goes to Angelina Jolie!

I love a woman in a suit but it has to be done right! An example of a lady in menswear not done right is Rihanna at the MET Gala some years ago. Terrible. Just horrible - google it!

I've only recently warmed to Angelina Jolie (I was team Aniston) but since watching a lot of her movies and seeing her involvement in charities I've really gained an appreciation for her. This look she's donned for the awards only makes me like her more!

I'm also loving Lily Allen's Vivienne Westwood look, even the headpiece! Love the colour combination and the silk textures. Fierce!

Specks of Gold

My sister and I took these photos back at the start of December when we did the previous two graffiti photoshoots but somehow these photos were forgotten about. After finally getting the names of the brands she's wearing I'm now posting the pics mid-February. Can you believe it's this time of year already?? Summer is my favourite season and I can't help but feel a little melancholic when  I realise it's coming to an end. =(

Add my end-of-summer melancholy to my mondayitis and you can tell I'm feeling a little precious today... ;-)

I know, I know the Grammys Red Carpet is sooo last week but I have been away on holidays and off the internet (except instagram =0) so I'm a little late to the ball game so to speak!

I actually think this years looks are quite boring and pedestrian however, I am loving Beyonce's and Paris Hilton's looks which are somewhat similar in style.

I'm also loving the dresses on Colbie Caillat, Chrissy Teigen and Amber Rose.

Worst dressed goes to Natasha Bedingfield for this overdone, under-styled and frumpy boho look. I mean, seriously? The bangs are actually the worst part of this look.

 My best dressed goes to Giuliana Rancic in Australian Designer Alex Perry. I'm loving the daring orange hue, the slim lines and and the lace detail of this dress. Giuliana rarely gets it wrong though. Love me some Giuliana and Bill!
