There’s something so mystical about a forgotten forest, shaded by dense trees and harbouring fresh pine cones. Weaving through the trees and sprinkling a shimmery dust along my pathway, I fell into a serene fantasy, as though I had opened the door to a deserted Narnia. Replacing the feared Snow Queen, I am a forest fair maiden, surrendering to furry printed sweaters and luxe leatherette skirts. Flirting with the golden sun, I am mesmerised at how the sunlight emphasises the pleated pattern in my skirt as I twirl. Picking up rose gold shimmers, my Swarovski earrings glisten against my porcelain skin, a treasure amongst the forestry.

As always my fashion exploration includes the company of my special photography team, Erin Smith Photography and Ghassani Swaryandini. These two lucky charms of mine always insight a little magic behind the lens, capturing the most perfect moments.

Where the sequins meet the sea. I’m pulling out a sass & bide statement for the sunset, teamed perfectly with my shiny new Oroton clutch. Gold upon gold upon black, as Sam Sparro says, I’m doin’ it right!

With a keen eye for multi texture, I’m am loving the combination of glomesh, sequins and patent leather, which adds some serious depth to the predominately dark colour palette seen in this look. A light touch of sheer adds a final dimension, helping to balance out the three heavier fabrics.

The dreamy sunset recaptured the gorgeous summer that was, painting a lovely backdrop for my photographer, Erin Smith Photography. Playing with shadows, sequins and sun flare, we left our creative footprints in the sand!

Thank you to DFO Brisbane who have served up the shiny goods, in the form of this gorgeous Oroton Scent Mesh Bag. This delicate beauty will not be leaving my side anytime soon! Visit the DFO website and Facebook page for any fashion news and savvy specials!

Oroton Gold Clutch (similar style here) available at DFO Brisbane, Wittner Ricky Boot.

A little golden glomesh is about to make my evenings out a whole lot more special. I found this little treasure at the Oroton store in DFO Brisbane and just like a magpie adoring any type of sparkle, I naturally HAD to have it. With the perfect outfit in mind, I cannot wait to style this piece and for a little hint of what you can soon expect of this little clutch, I will be highlighting some gorgeous multi texture and playing with some luxe designer pieces. Excited? – you should be! Pop back soon for some serious sparkle!

Old blue jeans; a faithful fashion omen and the newest addition to my winter wardrobe. Hardly a denim enthusiast, I spend 99% of my life in ultra feminine pieces, structured skirts and free flowing dresses (with the occasion splash of leather leggings),but never have I felt so comfortable strolling the quaint suburban streets in denim.

All of my denim inhibitions were suddenly ruled out in last month’s DFO style challenge, as I pushed my boundaries styling the perfect winter denim. With a little prior research (Pinterest) and wearing my comfortable heels, I set off to conquer my kingdom (DFO Jindalee).

Just Jeans definitely provided a selection of fabulous denim in every shape, shade and style you could imagine. With five styles, narrowed down to one, I strolled out with a pair of skinny fit, cropped ankle jeans, bottled excitement and my trusty Kate Middleton does denim snap, or otherwise my source of inspo. After all, you know you’ve chosen a royal winner when the Duchess of Cambridge is rocking skinny denim.

Keeping it chilled, I’ve teamed my denim with a relaxed button down, in a playful polka dot print. A neutral taupe boot and the chocolatey tones of my Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote, add a little chic to the casual ensemble- perfect for brunch!

A warm thank you to the fabulous team at DFO Jindalee who keep my shopping and style challenges fresh and exciting. Another warm thank you goes to my fabulous photographer, Erin Smith Photography, expert style snapper and blogger paparazzi.
