Simple Glam Rock Chic

I love coated J Brand skinnies – so very rock chic. There’s no better tank to wear with a pair of skinnies than a Zimmermann silk tank; buy every colour you like and you’ll be guaranteed to use. Paired with my favourite stilettos of the moment, Tony Bianco’s Karissa, and a great box clutch and statement jewellery and you’re good to go. Love this look!

NYE wearing The Showman

So as I previously blogged about, I purchased and wore We Are Handsome dress The Showman out on NYE. I loved wearing the dress, it was really comfortable and the print is awesome. I wore my hair down and created curls using a GHD and attempted a slight smoky eye using chocolate and dark blue eyeshadow. My Betts Dorothy pumps that Nan bought be for Christmas matched perfectly and I just used my good old Eclettica black clutch so I could carry my camera. For jewellery I wore white gold chandelier earrings and silver and black gem bracelets.

Name/Domain Change

Okay I swear this is the last time I change the name and address of this blog. I’ve been debating for ages about a suitable name and because I couldn’t get Rosie Chic as an address I had to come up with something else.

For those wondering, the name is not only about my journey to become more chic but also a play on the word becoming as in “What a becoming dress!”.

I feel like the older I get, the more I learn about fashion and the more I learn about myself. I feel I still have a long way to go sometimes before I can consider myself chic but I will strive to get there. Hopefully my new blog’s name will reflect this journey. I will also be striving this year to blog more often even though I’ll be in my final year of university. Fingers crossed I can do it!

Christmas!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas and New Year! I enjoyed both thoroughly. I thought I’d share some pic of the lovely gift my family gave me and of the day I had. I spent it between 3 different families and are so much it wasn’t even funny.

ASOS Window Shopping

After spending over a month straight going to bed between 12am and 2am thanks to uni work, exhaustion has caught up with me and given me the flu. Instead of going out and continuing the celebrations that mark the end of the uni year, I’m stuck at home ‘resting’. What better way to spend a Saturday night in that sussing out cute clothes and watching some TV?

ASOS is a great site to hit when you’re in a shopping mood simply because they have so many options on offer. So here are some cute pieces I felt the need to share with you all! Oh and did I mention they’re all under $100AUD?

For a cool night out with the girls, pair this blue beauty with some tan heels and gold accessories.

ASOS PETITE Exclusive Long Sleeve Belted Wrap Front Dress

Every girl needs a few dresses that can go from the boardroom to after-work drinks. Wow them all in this red number.

ASOS Mini Tulip Dress with Flute Sleeves in Red

Wear with brogues and braids for a conservative-gone-artistic chic look.

ASOS Shift Dress with Embellished Trim in Navy/Silver

What a gorgeous colour! Like a lime flavoured icy-pop in the summer sun. The perfect dress for shopping and lunch dates with the ladies. I’m definitely considering purchasing this number to cheer me up!

ASOS Belted Dress With Scoop Neck in Antique Moss

Party the summer nights away in this show-stopping frock. This shade of plum is simply divine and so very fun. Don’t go OTT by pairing with a black clutch and heels and understated jewelry.

TFNC Bandeau Sweetheart Sequin Dress

Another dress I’m really wanting right now is this lovely white number. There’s just something about this dress that gets me. Maybe it’s the fact you can accessorise it with lots of black without looking like you’ve just stepped out of a goth’s wardrobe? Whatever it is, I like it!

ASOS Tailored Pleat Lapel Crepe Dress in Cream

Anyway I hope you’re all enjoying your weekend. Maybe if you’re tired tomorrow from too much fun you can find a great frock for next week!
