As I was scrolling through my Facebook feed prior but close to christmas time, Tuula's page came up advertising this peplum top and I knew straight away that I needed that item to be part of my staple wardrobe. I did not hesitate to add it on my cart and purchase it right away because I thought if Jessica Stein is telling everyone to buy it, then literally everyone will buy it. So I did not want to miss the chance on laying my hands on this yet another neoprene piece of clothing (I have explained my obsession previously in this post). I cannot emphasise how much I love this scuba material. If this top was made using other types of material that does not have the strength and thickness to create this great structure, then it's just another white top that I would probably just scroll through without stopping. It is a simple design but the exaggerated structural silhouette gives the wow and elegant factor that allows this top to be worn to a dressier event. And just as I thought, it was pretty much sold out without hours.

I have always seen people take photos at Parliament, but I didn't think that the location could be this photogenic. When you look at the building, yes it does look majestic but when you try to take a photo with it, it's pretty average. Unless you take  it from across the road so you get the whole thing on the photo or... take a photo from the building side towards the city. You capture the vintage looking cement railing and lights, juxtaposed against the modern tall buildings and if you are lucky, Melbourne's restaurant trams.

wearing: STELLY skirt | STACCATO heels | DAY & NIGHT necklace | SPORTSGIRL clutch | QUAY sunglasses

Every year around late spring to early summer, Australian streets are always awash by the magnificent purple-blue flowers of Jacaranda. Inspired by Tuula's annual Jacaranda post taken in Sydney, I too wanted to make the purple blooms as the background of a photo shoot. This is the closest I can find in Melbourne, near my work, only a few metres away from the previous shoot location.
Thanks to Jessica Utami for taking these beautiful photographs and bearing with our randomness and mucking around (Denissa's and mine).

wearing: BEGINNING BOUTIQUE playsuit | DAY & NIGHT statement necklace | RUBI SHOES wedges | PRADA bag | sunglasses belongs to Jessica Utami

Thanks to the frequent appearance of playsuits in the Spring/Summer 2013 catwalks, playsuits have made their way to the forefront of girls' wardrobes. They create a chic, stylish yet effortless look for the summer and plus a great alternative to a dress. This gorgeous white playsuit is from one of my favourite online stores, Beginning Boutique. It can easily be worn casually with a cardigan and a pair of boots or flats, or simply dress it up with the addition of wedges or heels and perhaps a blazer during the colder nights.
