Recent buys

A few of my recent purchases.

Repetto tan ballet flats from local boutique Domain Shoes and Accessories. Did I mention I can wear my orthotics with them? Winner. Although, okay, I admit I do need to invest in some double sided tape just to hold the orthotics down a bit better. But at least I kind of have another pair of shoes to wear orthotics with.

Rory Beca lace running shorts from Shopbop. So comfy, so good for kicking around the house. And they’re a bit chic too. Oh, and they were $30. Love it.

Forever New white and black button up dress. I bought this for an upcoming 21st with the theme ‘white formal’. Obviously I could have gone with something more formal, like a gown, but with the right hair and makeup I think this will work. Plus the party is in a club and I’m not risking a drink spill on something ball gown-ish.

Rag & Bone booties from Madison Los Anglese

So chunky ankle booties are everywhere at the moment and my god are they cute. You may remember from a few posts ago my lovely Tony Bianco Devon ankle booties; well Rag & Bone has that similar chunky boot in at the moment and they are simply divine. You can find them on Madison Los Angeles online at the moment.

But if these are a bit out of your price range then keep an eye out because Tony Bianco and Rag & Bone aren’t the only people producing these hot little numbers with the likes of Shakuhachi, Rachel Comey, H by Hudson, Topshop Witchery also getting in on the action.

Go for a biker chic style boot with a heel roughly 6-8cm for comfort and a bit of a boost. Trust me, once you put a pair of these on you won’t want to take them off!

Shopbop LBD Love

Ah so many amazing clothes on Shopbop! Here’s a few things I’m lusting after right now:

Joie Topaz Dress in Black

An amazing LBD by brand Joie. This is such my style of dress and it comes in an amazing sunburnt orange kind of colour. I could have a million dresses in this shape and still not have enough. Effortless, easy to accessorise, chic and easy to dress up or down. Love them!

Theory Halleli Dress

Hello day to night dress! I could totally see myself wearing this at internship or to cocktails at a nice bar. Very easy to jazz up, very easy to wear; another example of effortless chic dressing.

Splendid Long Sleeve Mini Dress in Denim

This lovely number by Splendid also comes in black, however, I just love this colour of blue. You could do plenty with it and it would be perfect for going out during winter in Townsville with maybe a leather jacket over the top. Layer lots of long necklaces and you’re good to go in this baby!

Marchesa Chiffon Dress with Illusion Neckline

Shoot me now, is this dress amazing or is it amazing? If only it was anywhere close to being in my budget! Amazing, timeless, so very chic. Pair with a gorgeous high bun and sleek heels for a very elegant and feminine look.

Shoshanna Elizabeth Shirtdress in White

Okay, so maybe it isn’t black or in a black option like the rest, but isn’t it pretty? Casual Friday at work appropriate, lunch with the girls appropriate; this dress is elegant, timeless and chic. Pair with delicate gold jewellery and cute sandals. 

Shopbop Lusting

I’m totally lusting over some of Shopbop’s newest pieces! Ages ago when I first started shopping on Shopbop I set up the ‘My Designers’ page and it’s proven to be great. They send a decent number of email updates when new items from your favourite designers come in and Shopbop also let’s you know when your favourite items go on sale. So after receiving my latest email update I decided it was time for a blog with my current fave items.

First up, a Parker cluster beaded v neck dress in mauve. Super sparkly and fun; this dress is the ultimate party dress. I love the colour of this dress as well because it’s cute and will match heaps of shoes and clutches. Definitely a great investment dress!

Parker Cluster Beaded V Neck Dress

My next favourite dress is very similar to the first–it’s both beaded and from the same Parker collection. Ladies who love a great strapless will adore this dress (it’s too cute for words!) Like the v neck dress, this dress is very versatile and will go great in your wardrobe for a fantastic night out. Parker cluster beaded strapless dress in mauve.

Parker Cluster Beaded Strapless Dress

My third favourite Shopbop dress right now is again by Parker (what can I say, they do great dresses). The lovely long sleeves and the soft lavender colour ticks all of the boxes on my dress requirements list. There’s just something about a long-sleeved floaty dress with a short hem that I adore. Parker long sleeve dress in lavender.

Anyways head to Shopbop and check out some of their amazing pieces on offer and don’t forget to suss out Parker while you’re at it–I promise you won’t regret it!
