Frocktober 2014


Over on my Instagram page (@waituntilsunset) I've been participating in Frocktober, a month long event to help raise awareness of ovarian cancer. The Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation has discovered that:

- Every ten hours, one woman dies from ovarian cancer in Australia
- Unlike other cancers, there is NO early detection test
- Over 50% of the community incorrectly believe a pap smear diagnoses ovarian cancer
- Ovarian cancer has a lower survival rate than both breast and cervical cancer

Pretty scary stuff hey?  So 
I've been participating by playing along with Kimba-Likes by attempting to wear a different fabulous frock for each and everyday of October. If I missed a day, Neo very graciously dressed up for me instead. Check out our month of frocks (so far!) below!



Want to donate? Because that would be awesome!

Hope and Harvest Nauticus Collection

As soon as I saw the Hope and Harvest look book for their new Nauticus collection, my jaw dropped. I pretty much wanted everything. So chilled with a classical nautical vibe, it instantly put me in mind of a Summer holiday! The H&H team sent us up a few pieces to show off, so Suger, Em and I got together and had ourselves a little Friday afternoon mixer at my place. Em and Sug both dragged a bag or so of goodies over and we literally had a dress up party!






Emma, Suger and Liv wear: Hope and Harvest Anchor-T-Shirt

So as you can see, there were more than a few laughing moments. We set up a tripod, pumped on some tunes and giggled our way through three sets of outfits. I was pretty impressed with our efforts, especially considering we changed clothes in the street with the open boot of the car covering us! Oh! And that time a delivery truck drove in front of the camera, but not before he kindly stopped so we could take a photo! 

I love how rad this anchor print H&H tee is. It's such versatile piece, it so easily dresses up an ordinary pair of jeans yet still looks really pulled together. Such a cool little instant-chic wardrobe necessity! 







This more dressed-up look is my favourite set of the day. One of the things I love most about these photos, is that Emma, Sug and I are a similar sort of tag size, yet are such different body shapes.  Each outfit is uniquely us and different from each other, yet still from the one collection. It just shows how each item can be so effortlessly included into anyone's wardrobe. Those are always the best designs! 








Emma wears: Hope and Harvest Nauticas Capri Pants
Liv wears: Hope and Harvest Denim Jacket
Suger wears: Hope and Harvest Anchor T-shirtNauticas Skirt and Zip-Off Jacket

This denim jacket was my favourite piece that we tried out on the day. I love the lightweight feel of it, perfect for these warm Spring days and cool evenings. And the zip off style is a very cool way to pretty much score two jackets in one! In fact, I loved it so much that I wore it out again that night!

What's your favourite piece of the collection??

OOTD: Luxe

It was Ben's birthday last weekend and he is soon off for a work rotation in China. Every weekend has become even more special for us as we count down the weeks until he departs. So with that in mind and the fact it was his birthday, last Saturday I wanted to look like a total fox!

I've had this gorgeous Meri by Design sequin cape in my wardrobe for the last few weeks. Its been hanging next to my mirror and not a day has gone by where I haven't looked it, touched it or sighed at its fabulousness. Its such a gorgeous statement piece and I knew it would be perfect for Ben's birthday cocktails!

Slip: City Chic
Necklace: Colette
Heels: Torrid
Clutch: a rocking vintage find

I've never felt more luxurious. The weight, feel and movement of this jacket just feels luxe! I wanted to keep the outfit otherwise simple, so styled it with a plain black slip and minimal jewellery. A cape like this doesn't need much, its such a wow piece by itself that it makes everything look like understated glam. I used my vintage gold clutch to carry my essentials and I love the way it picks up the subtle gold tones.

Based in New South Wales, I first came across Meri by Design when I saw them on the runway at the Curvy Couture Roadshow (check out my post about them here!). From the first opulent piece until the last, I was hooked! I adore the cuts and elegant design of the brands collections, each one is so distinctive and eye-catching. I love that there is a high fashion plus-size label like this that is Aussie made and designed. It makes me proud to see the leaps and bounds Australian plus-size fashion is taking. I can put this cape on and feel like a movie star, its everything a wardrobe investment piece should be: high fashion, luxurious, timeless and glamorous.









How would you wear this sequin cape?
