Black and Gold

20120307-231935.jpg

Oh black and gold! Not only do I hold a soft spot in my heart for those colours thanks to 12 years of house spirit from school, but it looks good in jewellery too!

I received a lovely Stockland gift voucher for my 21st which I used to buy some new jewellery. Such as my lovely black tooth necklace on a long chain and my two new rings in a similar style.

These babies go fantastically with my current wardrobe and help make them feel a bit different and new. Plus they each cost under $15! Bargain!

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.

Today’s Outfit: The Classic Sheer Shirt

Today’s Outfit for work and play. First pic is my very comfy outfit, very chic for work. I absolutely adore it. To be honest, I just chucked in on in a rush to work and thankfully it worked out great. I love that you can still see the skirt beneath because tucking in button ups can be a bother sometimes. At home I’m always in shorts and the top goes great with my blue True Religion Joey Cut-Offs. A tick in all three C’s: comfy, cool (which is most important in the tropics) and of course chic!
I couldn’t be bothered to wear a singlet underneath in this heat, or wear a black bra to make it stand out more. A slight faux pas but as a nearly-21-yo I feel it’s not so bad for me.

Top: Forever New
Skirt: Kookai
Shoes: Tony Bianco
Accessories: Diva necklace, Forever New ring & Mum’s Seiko watch

Top: Forever New
Shorts: True Religion
Accessories: Tiffany & Co necklace, Jen’s Pirate Booty bangle (I think… It was originally brandless but looks similar to JPB stuff), Mum’s Seiko watch

Oh finally, if you’re buying a similar shirt make sure you go a size up. Oversized is comfy, however make sure you don’t go so big you get swamped in the shirt.

Today’s Outfit

Sorry I’ve been slack with updating Becoming Chic with recent outfits. Below are some new ones I tried out over the last week.

I wore my new Tony Bianco Devon boots to work on Sunday with and oldie but goodie Gypsy 05 tie dye shift dress, Ray-Ban Cats and one of many JKC bangles. I started the day out hair down and wavy but the ridiculous humidity won and I ended up with the old pony-tail. I definitely felt like I was channeling Melbourne shop assistant chic in this outfit — although I may have needed some eyeliner to complete the look!

Saturday’s work outfit consisted of a Cue leopard print tank, Kookai skirt, Arthur Galan belt, Tony Bianco flats, Longchamp tote and Dinosaur Designs bangles. A great outfit that’s got a work-to-after-5-drinks feel to it. I just need another hole punched in the belt so my shirt stops sliding up over it.

Another Sunday work outfit: Nicholas silk shorts, Kookai top, Zara studded heels, Diva necklace and Dinosaur Designs bangles. A nice quick and simple monochrome outfit with coloured accessories.

An outfit I wore to drinks with a friend on my last night in Sydney. Weather appropriate for a girl from tropical NQ and easy to wear. White Suede jacket, Kookai grey tank and black skirt, Zara heels (not shown), Gorman like green bag, Diva necklace. I haven’t decided if I liked the lime green bag and turquoise necklace together but it looks ok, I guess.
I apologize if I’ve repeated any outfits, my Internet just crashed and I’m doing this off my phone. It’s also getting slightly hard to remember what I post on instagram and not on WordPress yet! Stay tuned for more Today’s Outfit posts in the future!

On Monday night I went to see Twilight Breaking Dawn part 1 with some girl friends. Since movies are always cold I took my cute little American Vintage cardigan and then added more colour with my Diva necklace (around $10-$20 I think) and my favourite bag right now.
Dress: American Vintage
Cardigan: American Vintage
Shoes: Natasha
Bag: Longchamp Le Pliage Tote in grape
