Sparkles


Thanks to the sweethearts from Miss Guided, I present to you my second look from the Nicole x Miss Guided collection. To minimise any confusion- yes, I have worn the dress version of this glittery top here. What can I say? I am a sucker for all- things shiny...

Ah, and hello to you too. I have once again, been under the radar in terms of updating the blog due to the significant amount of assignments that I have to constantly complete. To give you a little overview of my past week, I have either been sleeping for hours, taking in a lot of caffeine, then visiting my bittersweet friend, Microsoft Word. It's hard to complain though, especially when you select courses like Law and Media where the assessments revolve around doing assignments... Besides Law exams, I can't remember the last time I had to sit in a room and do a test. 

In the midst of writing this article, my stress levels and throbbing headache has temporarily stopped (key word: temporarily), since this form of procrastination is something I genuinely enjoy. Moreover, little reiterations like this help drastically, for when I do need some motivation to blog. Nevertheless, I have a lottttttt of things planned for this blog but won't be doing anything until next week, as that is when I'll officially be on holidays! Feeling stoked is definitely an understatement. However, I can't do much until these essays are handed up so, until then...

Dark Glamour


Surpriseeee! With the previous couple of posts heavily revolving around casual street wear- think sneakers, sneakers and more sneakers, I've decided to mix it up a little with this sparkly dress from the new Nicole x Miss Guided collection. From a personal point of view, this feminine dress definitely understands how to accentuate a lady's body shape. I'm actually in love with it, and am rather exhilarated to showcase such a different side of me today (good excuse since it's Halloween)! If you read this blog on a regular basis, you will eventually come to the conclusion that I rarely wear tight- fitting/ going- out clothes on here. Consequently, this makes it a whole lot more exciting to publish this post.

And of course, now that my hair is slowly fading back to a redder shade, it was not difficult to colour- coordinate it with some dark lipstick, and matching burgundy heels.

Call me a crazy night owl (or something) but I am currently writing this post at 6:17 am, as I am still slaving away at Uni doing more assignments. Why do assessments seem never- ending?

On a brighter note, it is now Friday! Unfortunately I won't be carving anything exciting on pumpkins, or knocking on my neighbours doors for sweets. However I will hopefully be encountering some awesome costumes throughout the day, right? Happy Halloween!

Staples

I've been religiously living in these sneakers for many reasons, ranging from the extreme comfort to the casual, aesthetic factor that it provides for my outfits. This minimalistic look simply expressed my mood for that day, when I realised the amount of assessments that I have to complete within a matter of weeks. On top of everything, being exposed to amazing designers, shows and general festivities throughout Adelaide Fashion Festival has certainly helped lighten that stressful sensation for me.

Speaking of Adelaide Fashion Festival (AFF), expect numerous upcoming (yet, delayed) posts from the events that I've attended. It's always such a delight to see what Adelaide's fashion scene is capable of. I'm actually drafting and editing images as we speak so definitely stay tuned for it. As for now, I'll be getting ready for tonight's last, yet exciting AFF event: The Gentlemen's Lounge, before I find myself slaving away soon after in attempt of completing this 4,000 word report... Hope everything goes to plan!
