So hopefully you'd have read my little snippet with Leigh from Halcyon State. Last week I dropped by the store, quickly put together two outfits and went shooting around the neighbourhood. As you can see the sky was overcast and we were lucky to be done before Melbourne skies decided to let loose for the rest of the day!
Woodford and Co Aquamarine Tux Jacket; Tato and Memi Iznik Silk Shirt; Tato and Memi Gibb Shorts; Totomoto Australia Cluster Passion Flower Cuff; Misuzi Gold Bar Necklace ; Tony Bianco Booties
I think I have previously mentioned that I love subtle textures in an outfit, and so was smitten with these Tato and Memi gold tweed shorts the second I caught a glimpse of them out of the corner of my eye! A slightly sheer cream top and Misuzi's amazingly delicate gold necklace made for easy partners. But it felt like they needed something else. This mint silk blazer was beautiful to the touch, and I love how it works as a refreshingly light addition. As for the gold flower cuff, it simply is a piece of art in itself. Understatedly poised.
Um, love. Cut-outs and nordic prints. Two pieces that make quite a statement individually yet for some reason I chose to bring them together. Quite frequently do we see all sorts of cut-outs strategically placed at the waist, shoulders and back, but these criss-cross panels that run through the length of this House of Wilde dress were edgy and different, proving to be quite a source of excitement for me! I'm loving this nordic print cape by Chip Chop! (doesn't the name excite you?) - fun print, tuck your arms in to stay warm, sneak them out when you need them. Besides, it is also probably the closest I'll get to Scandinavia at the moment..
SO, BECAUSE WE ALL LOVE AUSSIE DESIGNERS AND ONLINE SHOPPING FOR ONE REASON OR ANOTHER (C'MON, ADMIT IT), LEIGH IS KINDLY GIVING AWAY A $50 HALCYON STATE VOUCHER TO ONE LUCKY READER!
