How crazy is it when you reach milestones? Not the typical ‘It’s our 35 hour anniversary’ by a couple of fifteen year olds but proper, grown up anniversaries! The thing about anniversaries is that they remind you of how far you’ve come! Let’s uncork the champagne and open a tub of ice cream and settle in for this post.
I have to be honest I have really shared much about who I am in my posts (although hopefully my humour’s come through!) A little more about me.. I started this blog during this particular year as it’s my first year out of school. I always wanted to start a fashion blog but never had time or wasn’t interesting enough or one of a hundred other excuses. But one day I did (I know your thinking ‘obviously’) But what I’ve realised is how much I love it.
I love walking down a street or reading a magazine or flicking through instagram and being inspired. Though fashion isn’t meant to be a ‘serious’ topic there are far more than a few amazing fashion bloggers who are proving the ‘haters’ wrong. What I love about fashion is how it can change someone’s confidence or show the world a little personality. Does it seem silly to type away about it? maybe. But I once styled a friend of mine after she spoke about how much she didn’t really like shopping – she didn’t think anything looked good on her. As corny as it is I was so happy when she liked the girl she saw in the mirror. That’s kind of when I knew that if I was going to start a blog it would be for everyone, not just talking about myself or celebrities or how to look a certain way but a bit of everything.
I wanted to thank all of you for subscribing or visiting or viewing. I honestly squealed when I saw that someone had liked a post for the first time. It was crazy that anyone would want to read what I was writing. Hopefully in the future I can improve my photography skills, I want to post some OOTD’s and just keep writing interesting stuff! If you have any suggestions write it down in the comment section!

Where there are winners there are bound to be losers. Regardless of getting a surfboard or not there are some tiny teen stars who didn’t quite dress for the occasion! Here are my 6 worst dressed of the night! Best Dressed coming soon…
Britney. Oh Britney. Not unfamiliar to the teen world but obviously to the changes in style she looks like she’s stuck at age eighteen. The dual coloured dye in her hair did nothing to convince me she has any style at all. The dress was too short and way too much cleavage was on display. However the strappy sandals and pretty fabric of the dress helped to redeem the look a little bit (okay not much but it was something!)
When your asking questions like ‘is it a dress or a long top?’ perhaps it’s time to change. While orange was a great colour on her and showed off her figure I can’t help but imagine how good an extra 15cm of fabric and straps would have done for the outfit. Her shoes, clutch and hair were all great choices for the carpet.
Argghhh that hair. Are you fifteen or twentyeight that is the question? I can forgive younger stars for their High- School-Musical-Sharpay hair but Lea’s been to enough carpets to know that the hair is just a little too juvenile. I wish that the whole dress had either been blue or red (I’m gunning for red as she’s wearing red heels) with a slick ponytail. Much more sophisticated.
Lots of pink sequins in different shades and black mesh fashioned into flame shapes? It shouldn’t work as well as it sounds but that’s not enough to save the dress. This, I think will divide some of you readers whether it should be on the best or worst post! My problem is that it looks more like a dance/ice skating costume than a stunning red carpet look and the gradient sequins are a bit dated. I also think I expect more from Nina and the overall look was just a bit ‘meh’.
I have an intense phobia of snakes and that’s why this look was probably always going to end up on my ‘worst’ dressed post. But come on? From a distance I thought she was holding a real live snake and that doesn’t look hot on anyone. The red lips, straight hair, black sandals and skirt part of the dress are great but the snake top isn’t fitted properly, a weird shade of green and I cannot get over how frightenly realistic the snake looks. It’s a no from me.
Why does she have an oversized lego block around her waist? Is that a striped mat on her bottom half? Willow are you there amongst the strangely coloured fabric? Where is her stylist?! Her stylist needs to go to styling school. Nothing in this outfit suits her
BONUS Worst Dressed…
With no real claim to fame I’m ashamed as an Australian that this horrific outfit is one of the few representing us over in the US of A. I don’t know what she was thinking but the draping pants/fringe heels/black silky top/red bag/bad roots combination is not a winning one. I’m all for mixing it up on the carpet but tailored pants, a cute two piece or even a dressy romper would have done wonders. Gal pal it’s still a ‘red carpet’ not a trip to the shopping mall.
Do you agree or disagree?
Over and Out with love,

As far as trends go generally I’m happy to jump on the trend-train in some way, shape or form. But as for the microbag trend I’m not sure If this is one I’ll try or leave. Designers such as Fend, Dior, Tory Burch, Saint Laurent, Valentino and more have brought out mini bag. Most are either small replicas of their classic bags or a simple new design.
Despite being enamoured by the idea of a teensy tiny purse (I mean if you were rich enough and had a little girl you could buy one for her one for you – adorable!) but the reality of a bag so small meant the novelty died quickly. Having done my research most will barely fit more than an iphone 6, a couple of cards and maybe a lipstick. The problem is that we already have a practical, cheaper solution – hello designer wallets and coin purses?! So do you need or leave this trend?
As a cheaper alternative to a wallet I get it but unless you have money trees and can afford your regular sized designer bag having its own designer bag I would say save the money. It might seem like a good idea but if your looking for a regular sized designer bag, the microbags are starting at around $1000 so you may as well keep saving.
From huge, oversized bags to mini microbags can a designer please come out with an exciting regular sized bag?!
That’s my request of the day! Over and out,
