Sass & Bide Wishlist

I’ve been staring at the Sass & Bide site for a few days now, wondering what I prefer most and what I should treat myself to. So far, I can’t make a decision — so many different outfit possibilities. So I thought I’d share my wish-list with you all.

Firstly, I’m lusting after some amazing black pieces. More specifically: the master pant, the side of life jacket, and the flashback top. Gorgeous, simple, and chic.

Next, I’m currently wanting new jumpers to add to my already too large collection for someone who lives in the tropics. Realistically, two hoodies, a knit jumper, two jackets, a leather jacket and three cardigans is more than enough in a city you only really need a jumper for a month in winter and when you go to the supermarket or movies. Such a fashion girl problem, right? I must admit though, as cute as the one to watch long sleeve tee is, I just adore the it’s just a memory top more because of the sequin back. I can picture them perfectly with chunky gold jewellery, purple coated skinnies and a chunky black heel and bag.

Leather bustier. Need I say more about this one? It’s a tad sexy, and I love it (although not for wearing myself. I wonder if I could get one of my friends into this one).

I don’t normally like tops like this one, with the denim combo, but I just adore this for some reason. Possibly something to do with the creamy silk it’s contrasted against. Similar to the sequin knit, pair with chunky gold jewellery, black skinnies, a potentially leopard print pumps for added spice. Despite it being a little far from my usual style, I surprisingly like the idea of an outfit like this on myself. But I can imagine this would look good on quite a few people.

Mint Green Equipment

20120414-000545.jpg

I’ve been dying for an Equipment top for ages and have also been obsessing about finding a lovely mint something. So when I saw this gorgeous mint sleeveless button-up on Shopbop, I knew I had to have it.

Now I knew it’d be long on me, however it turns out it’s actually a relatively modest mini-dress on me – damn my vertically challenged-ness. It’s also slightly too wide despite being an extra-small.

Regardless I love it and am currently thinking of the most useful way to alter it. I’m thinking an inch off either side seam and possibly 2-3 off the hem. At first I may just alter the width however, and see if I use it as a dress or even a jacket. I have a feeling though I will take it up so I can wear it with my silk shorts. We’ll see what happens and I’ll update you all when I make a decision.

Lesson: don’t buy something unless you’re like me and happy to alter it. I have a good dressmaker and figure if I like something I will find a way to make it work. Others may find this too much hassle, which is perfectly fine, but pick your purchases wisely!

The Secret Garden Top

Oh my lord I’m so excited about what arrived in the mail today! We Are Handsome’s The Secret Garden top from Coggles! Yay!

It took exactly 2 weeks to arrive in Australia from the UK and my god is this top cool.

I’m thinking this might just be my Groovin The Moo outfit (which is less than 1 month away). My only concern is how sunburnt my shoulders and mid-drift could get.

Regardless, I have many places I could wear it and have already tried it on with a large portion of my wardrobe. So. Many. Options. One in particular I’ll be doing is this amazing top with my black Zimmermann skater skirt and some awesome pumps.

God I love We Are Handsome’s stuff. Next on my wish list: their snow leopard print!

Jay Jay’s denim

Now I don’t really ever shop at Jay Jay’s, except maybe the odd basic. However on my lunch break the other day I went for a gander there and found a lovely pair of mid/high-waisted denim shorts. They caught my eye because they’re a lovely cut and a nice traditional pair of denims. However I was surprised to discover the denim quality was really quite good. Definitely a great pair of shorts for a festival.

LBMD: Little Black Maxi Dress

20120307-230356.jpg

A new dress I purchased from Forever New last week. Fantastically comfortable; I adore this dress because you can dress it up or down and do so much with it accessories-wise.

It was reduced to $100 too! The local WNBL MVP Formal Dinner was on the weekend I purchased the dress too so I paired it with my Betts glitter pumps, Diva turqouise necklace and gold jewellery to turn it into a nice semi-formal outfit.

Definitely a dress I’ll be reworking for another event or a nice dinner out with the boyfriend.

Finders Keepers lace playsuit

20120301-234140.jpg

So yesterday it was my 21st birthday, however since I had my actual party 5 days earlier I used a 21st gift voucher to buy an outfit for dinner. This lovely lace playsuit was from Jaxx (aka cargonirvana.com) and cost me $110. Bargain!

Super comfy, super chic and looks great on, my only issue is how short it is when sitting. The dress pairs fantastically with a strong red lipstick, pumps and gold jewellery. In a way it reminds me of something Lover would do.

I’m loving this look and will definitely be wearing it again soon!
