I was lucky enough to be chosen to participate in a style challenge by incredible Australian label Wish (visit them at wish.com.au). This blogpost has the potential to win me a trip to Thailand, or a helluva lot of clothes – pretty exciting!
So you guys would all know that I’m going pretty monochrome at the moment. Shades of black and white are my best friend, and I’m struggling to stray from them. I just feel that going floral and colourful when it hits warmer months is a little too conditioned into us, and I’d rather play with shade and texture this spring and keep colour to a minimum. This is purely because I never have, and I can bet that majority of you guys haven’t either. Are you guilty of relying on bright colours every spring? I have been. Choose another path this spring! We have so many options, so many different elements that we can play with within our own style. Play around, like I have – it’s so much fun.
The Wish ‘Chantilly’ dress is perfect for what I want to play with. With a soft cotton underlay, and a lovely chiffon overlay, it’s impossible not to feel feminine in this dress. The swallow/geometric pattern (which is exclusive to Wish this season) is made up of muted jewel tones, and regardless of being a statement, it doesn’t try to take away from the floaty nature of the dress. Neither do the black panels around the sleeves and bottom of the dress. I’m in love with it!
The shoes are my new favourites. I was surprised as all hell when I found them… at K-Mart. What?! I know. They’re comfy, and flattering. The clutch – which you guys have seen before, but it’s one of my favourite things I own, so nerr – is from the H&M collection with Maison Martin Margiela. It’s a remake from his 2010 SS collection – the infamous candy clutch. Rings are from Lovisa, nose ring is from ASOS, and faux leather cap is from Sportsgirl.
In terms of beauty, I was really excited to find this new shade of lipstick from Australian make-up label Australis – part of their Colour Inject Mineral lipstick range, this dark plum shade is called ‘Grunge‘. I’m also wearing their mineral highlighter – it’s a wonderfully subtle addition to any casual makeup look, but it really does make a difference, your face looks so fresh after highlighting your cheekbones. All other makeup by Rimmel (because I really DO enjoy that London look), and hair product used is Kevin Murphy Session Spray.
What do you guys think – does this outfit deserve a trip to Thailand!?
Huge shout out and thank you to Wish for including me in this challenge, and gifting me the beautiful dress. You guys are the biggest babes, thanks!
