OOTD: floral and denim

We headed out for dinner for Libby's birthday recently, you know cockatils, food and good company. My favourite type of nights. I wanted to wear this cute little Forever 21+ dress but its a little on the nippy side- sooooo, of course. Its THE JACKET time! I imagine that Hammer Time song every-time I put it on. Dooo do duh do, jacket time!

Dress: Forever 21+
Jacket: 17 Sundays
Clutch: Target
Flats: Rubi Shoes
Stockings: Sonsee Woman

I toasted up the outfit by wearing these Sonsee stockings in the opaque 100 Denier Full Tights. The team at Sonsee sent me a gorgeous little package of tights recently- perfect timing for the chilly change in weather. I'm a mega stockings fan- having a perfect pair of well fitting tights is almost better than a perfect pair of jeans. I've worn these out quite a few times and love the thickness and stretchiness of them. Sizing wise, I'm wearing a 'Stunning' size 22-24 and they fit pretty bang on. I have quite a long torso and short legs, so I had a little ankle sag in these after a few hours, but nothing that would ever stop me buying more of them.

As a side note, did you see Libby and I traded dresses that night?? Libby's dress was labeled 'one size fits all'- ahahahahahhaha! Do you like my leotard??? ;)

Staying toasty with Autograph Fashion

The weather has well and truly turned a little frosty here in Australia and I'm on the lookout for ways to warm up my wardrobe. Rather than just showing you the list of stuff I want, I thought it would be fun to get into the store and start shopping together! Plus its easier to make on-line shopping choices when you've seen how they fit! The ladies at my local Autograph store at Cannon Hill were super helpful and didn't bat an eyelid when I started snooping around with my camera, here are some of my favourite snaps from the day!

I love that Autograph is a one stop shop for everything fashion related. PJ's, underwear, basics, outerwear and even formal wear- these guys have you covered! I had a play around the racks and put a few outfits together for you to see how I would style up some of my favourite pieces.

I started by playing up the florals. Its too easy to get stuck in a rut just wear black over Winter and I'm loving the colour Autograph are injecting with these tops and cute leggings. The leggings are surprisingly warm and are so easy to style up. I'm wearing the a size medium in the leggings, a 20 in the top and a size 18 in the jacket. I adore the drape on the top- perfect for layering!

Wearing Autograph: Contrast lace yoke top, Aztec print soft pants like these

One of the first things that caught my eye when I entered the shop was the gorgeous lace blouse. The shoulder detailing is divine, I wish I was wearing a strapless bra to make the most of the shape! I've been living in soft pants like these lately, they are the perfect winter pant- comfy, high waisted and with gorgeous prints! Size wise, I'm wearing a 16 in the top and 22 in the pants.

I couldn't resist this fabulous top. Without a doubt, a stripe blouse like this is the most easily instant-chic piece in a woman's wardrobe. Styled up with these gorgeous jeans and a thick knit cardi, this outfit is Winter fashion winning! I'm wearing a size 20 in the blouse and a medium in the jacket- the jacket has a great curvy shape to it, its so rare to find knits with shape that I audibly 'ooohhd and ahhhd over it! Also, I was pleasantly surprised with the cut and shape of these size 22 skinny jeans, its my first time wearing Autograph's jeans and to say I'm converted may be an understatement. I had a great chat to one of the other customers shopping in the store, she said she pretty much lives in Autograph jeans and wouldn't buy any other brand!

 On the day I was in-store, Autograph were having a kit sale and they gave me $50 to spend- it was perfectly timed for my Winter cardi hunt. I took home the Peak Hem Drape Cardi and a necklace for just under the fifty! Bargain!! I've worn the cardi almost everyday since purchase and I snapped a few piccys of me wearing it this weekend for you to see how totally rad it is! I love the extra length in it, I feel like I can show a little leg or wear a plunging neckline and know that I'm still going to stay cosy!
