MBFWA : Flirty skirts

MBFWA : Flirty skirts

Flirty skirts_tornnlife.wordpress.com

MBFW Australia was as usual incredible. So many unique designers with their take on the next season.  One trend (I hate the term trend) that I was in awe of was the flirty skirt.

Alex Perry and Tony Maticeviski both created stunning skirts with elements of flirt added to them. Tony Maticeviski had more of an elegant modern silhoette where as Alex Perry had his take of the peplum mini skirt…

Which one? Plain or leopard Tony Bianco

Ahh to hard to choose. Sneakers, runners, slides, espadrilles (any kind of flat casual shoe for that matter seems to be having its moment right now).

Originally from the City of Sails, Auckland she now spends her time between Sydney, New York and the South of France.…

There is something therapeutic and rewarding about heading to the famers market to get your weeks supplies. Much more satisfying then just popping down to your local supermarket. For one you actually know where your fruit and vege are come from and two, well you cannot be the vibe of a market. The sellers are so passionate about their products you can’t help but feel you are getting the best…

A touch of lace

A touch of lace

This has to be my  favourite look I go back to time and time again. One baggy boyfriend singlet and one lacy soft cup. The combination of androgynous with a peak of feminine is what does it for me.

My favourite singlet for this look is from General Pants(mine is worn to death, think I will be stocking up on a few soon). As for the negligee you can’t go wrong with Lonely Lingerie, there are…

Since every second day we seem to be swapping between the climate of a typical Summer and then back to Winter again I thought it would be fitting to share this weeks inspiration. Mixed between the two like the days in the southern hemisphere recently, here is some of my recent loves showcasing the best of both seasons. So until the weather makes up its mind…

Chanel Espadrilles

Maurie and Eve dropped crotch jean and denim jacket, Ruby fields shirt, Chanel espadrilles

Chanel espadrilles are popping up everywhere. I must say I have taken a while to warm to them. Most likely as they can seem a little over indulgent for such a simple shoe. I like seeing Chanel in such a simple easy going manner as the espadrilles are I would love to see more.

What are your thoughts of…

The hidden tattoo

Tornn_white_tattoo

Now I think some tattoo are stunning and even admire women with stunning sleeves of artwork on their body. But I know myself and know that if I got a tattoo in about two years time I would begin to regret it. Maybe because like clothing to me at least would soon lose its appeal and its not easy to get rid of. These white tattoos on the other hand may be the answer. Much more subtle  and…

Shopping at Chanel

I am sure everyone has seen the incredible Chanel fashion show where I think the accessories and stage setting/props actually stole the show. The looks were incredibly stunning but didn’t stand a chance against a Chanel egg carton handbag or Chanel chain inspired shopping basket. Is it just me or is it food themed fashion dominating the fashion shows of fall 2014. Jeremy Scott’s McDonalds…

I think this has to be my all time favourite New Zealand campaign. The prints, the shapes, the leather and that bob!

Georgia Fowler looks incredible with that bob.
