UPDATE: Comp closed and winner contacted.
With my year 12 formal (senior prom for my northern hemispherian readers) taking place in a couple of (dozen) hours I thought: why not do a feature on my favourite formal/prom accessories from Shopbop? This year I have taken a page out of Kate Middleton’s book and have decided to keep mum about my formal dress and accessories to build up on the anticipation on the night (with the exception of Lisa, of course, who is unofficially my consultant). I’m usually not huge on accessories, I prefer to let the dress be the statement rather than a canvas forwhich accessories can be built on, but I have fallen in love with these pieces!
Juliet and Co pearl necklace Erickson Beamon earrings Kenneth Jay Lane snake bangle (you all know me and my love of dangerous animal themed jewelry) Guiseppe Zanotti velvet platforms Guiseppe Zanotti crystal sandals RED Valentino Satin Pumps Halston Clutch Foley and Corinna clutch DVF clutchBrace yourselves. I, in collaboration with Shopbop am giving away a $100 Shopbop voucher! All you have to do is comment on this post and tell me about what was the highlight of your prom/formal outfit to be in the running, entry ends on the 8th of August. The winner will be drawn randomly and will be notified via email, so leave your real email address! If formal/proms don’t float your boat, shopbop also have an amazing range of other accessories! Including Botkier bags, more Foley & Corinna bags, and MM6 Maison Martin Margiela!

*Warning* picture heavy post. I’ve been collating and compiling my recent outfit photos waiting to find a witty theme of some sort but alas, not such luck (typical hoarder, ha!) But there is an upside; there’s a wide spectrum of outfits for different occasions, parties, school, study dates and even the casual day in (kudos to the person who can tell me which one that is) . I think I might make an as seen in” page for ASAB soon, I was featured in Australian Teen magazine “DOLLY” as a reality read! The feature completely slipped my mind as the correspondence was done quite a while back but thanks a bunch to Georgie of Frangipani Princess for alerting me of it! ~update~just FYI I didn’t write the article, I answered a Q&A and the good people at Dolly compiled it for me :)(click to enlarge) Check out the mag if you can get your hands on it!

Oh how I’ve missed blogging, I see wordpress has had a facelift, nice, but a touch too severe. Thanks for being patient with me babes, yes, I’ve been in a study coma for the past month, but I’m happy to say that it’s paid off- I’m content with my semester report [big deal considering I once had a discussion with a teacher about the missing '+' next to my 'A']! But I bet you’re all curious to see what new designs I’ve created [well much more than how I've been doing at school ] Lately I’ve been going for practicality, everyday jersey basics, layering pieces over punchy, eye catchers.
