LPA skirt 59, MCQ Blazer, Stuart Weitzman Boots (similar here), Dezzal Shirt 

I love the thrill of a good sale and often the best ones are the after Xmas Boxing Day Dales. Revolve (the sister site of FWRD) is having up to 50% off selected pieces.

Some of my strategies and tips when sale shopping:

  1. Plan for the next season- Although Australia is currently in the peak of summer, I like to use the opportunity to stock up on Autumn/Winter clothes which are on sale in the northern hemisphere.
  1. Play the currency exchange game. Brands which are based in the states will often be cheaper from the US compared to in store in Australia (even after the currency conversion). Case in point, denim brands such as Frame, Mother, 3 x 1.
  1. Shop smart- buy classic pieces but also buy pieces that add a punch to your wardrobe- such as this LPA embroided skirt.

Here is a selection of my favourite pieces on Revolve at the moment:

  1. Marjorelle Molly faux fur coat 
  2. ATM Cashmere Sweater
  3. Mother Hustler Fray Jeans
  4. LPA Jacket 58 
  5. 3 x 1 W3 Straight crop in camden
  6. Mother Zip ankle fray 
  7. J Brand Selena mid rise crop 
  8. Charli Cheshire sweater
  9. Charli Chance sweater
  10. T by Alexander Wang deep v neck pullover
  11. Rag and Bone cora cardigan 
  12. Lovers +Friends James Denim Jacket 
  13. Rag and B0ne shelby boot 

Happy shopping!

Introducing the Urban Slider by EOD

EOD Urban Sliders, Style Mafia Usha pants, Anna Quan Shirt, Dylan Kain LSC Bag 

Slides are the definitely the shoe of the moment-something which I’m pretty happy about. They’re super comfortable (just slip on and go!) but also extremely versatile to style.Because they’re like a half loafer, they’re refined enough to wear with more polished outfits but also work brilliantly with jeans.

And I’ve found the perfect pair by EOD with their urban slider. I love the urban slider’s sleek minimal design and cool zipper detail. My favourite shoe of the moment that comes in both white and black– what could be more perfect?

FRWD 3 Day Holiday Sale- the Sale you NEED to shop

LPA Skirt, APC Bag, Acne Studios mules (similar here) , Anna Quan shirt 

I am an avid online shopper and dare say prefer it to actual shopping.

You can access brands that you cannot find in store in Australia, don’t have to battle crowds and for someone that is time poor, the convenience is really hard to beat.

When I online shop, I’m also a lot less likely to make impulse purchases which I regret as I tend to stick to a specific considered wishlist. Which is why I’m so excited that one of my favourite sites, FWRD by Elyse Walker is offering up to 25% off their entire site for Australian customers for 3 days between 13 -15 December (see further details of FWRD’s Holiday Sale at the end of this post).

FWRD has an amazing range of designers from premium labels such as Saint Laurent, Chloe and Givenchy, to cool up coming labels. Because they stock the most coveted pieces, it’s the perfect opportunity to snap up those items which don’t normally go on sale.

One of the coolest new labels stocked at Forward is LPA, created by former Reformation designer Pia Arrobio. LPA’s designs exude elements of rock and roll, elevated cool, bohemian chic and general awesomeness.

Blame it on Gucci, but embroidery is back with a vengeance. Needlepoint is gracing everything from shoes, denim, clothing, and accessories- nothing is safe.

While some may hate this trend, seeing it as unnecessary embellishment, I’ve embraced embroidery as a way to add colour and inject some fun into my otherwise monochrome wardrobe. I’m executing this trend with a leather skirt by LPA the Label– the combination of leather, embroidery and studs is instantly cool and eliminates any possibility of the embroidery being viewed as “grandma-esque”.  I’ve paired this skirt with a classic white shirt with a twist- the super long sleeves are another subtle point of interest which compliments the statement skirt.

Acne mules and my APC half moon bag, complete the outfit.

To help take advantage of FWRD’s holiday sale, I’ve curated my list of essential investment pieces for your wardrobe.
