MUST HAVE: WINTER DRESSES

Being a student, my life at the moment is pretty hectic, and while I spend my nights doing assignments (at the last minute, of course) I catch up on sleep in the mornings (roughly an hour before class starts) so instead of rushing like a mad woman trying to come up with a decent outfit in the 15 minutes I give myself to get ready, I just put on a chic winter dress and run out the door.

I know, I have an obsession with midi skirts and killer handbags.
I’m not going to apologise though, because you’ll be thanking me later.
Lately all of my edits have included items that are on my wishlist, and I finally got around to buying a Khaki midi skirt, yay!
I’m also torn between the Furla Metropolis Mini hip bag and this Alexander Wang bag, I think the Furla is the more affordable option though, so that solves that issue.
Finally, I need a pair of knee high boots! I am literally searching high and low for the perfect pair (at the perfect price) and let me tell you, with my taste it is not an easy task!

I am back and I am sorry

Winter #3

 

I am so sorry for not posting for over a week! In the mean time, I’ve been working on a sister blog called TFJ UNI STYLE. It originally started solely because I had an assignment where I had to create a unique blog based on a passion, and now I have heaps of things planned for it because I think it’s something that can really benefit my uni student reader demographic.

With that being said though, TFJ is my BAE and I just haven’t had a chance this past week to spend some quality time on it. Rest assured though, that as of this Thursday I will be on a two month break from uni so there will literally be a post every day.

This outfit idea came to me when I tried on the Max Mara Rialto hooded coat but wasn’t a massive fan of the sleeves. I loved the idea of a structured camel vest with statement leather pants, so I teamed this Theory trench with Yves Saint Laurent pants. I absolutely love the texture of the A Wang bag and how it gives the outfit a nice twist. I think my next major bag purchase will definitely be one of the Alexander Wang Rockie bags, I absolutely love them.

The best of Witchery outerwear that you NEED this winter

The best of Witchery outerwear that you NEED this winter

If there’s one Australian brand that I absolutely love, it’s Witchery, and every single winter they manage to release the best jackets and coats. This season in particular includes the most versatile colours and styles that I can guarantee will be investment pieces that you can wear for years to come.

Above I’ve put together an edit of my favourites of this season, top of my wish list is the moss green bomber jacket, followed ever so closely by the camel trench coat.

If I lived in London…

It’s no secret that if I found a briefcase with at least $15,000, the first thing I would do is go to the airport with an empty suitcase and move to London.

It’s okay, I’m not being completely unrealistic, I have family there and accommodation can be organised so it’s not a stupid idea, I assure you.

Lately, the wanderlust has been real and every time I shop, a motto runs through my head: “This would look awesome in London”.

With that being said, my “If I lived in London” shopping wishlist continues to grow every time I open a new internet tab.

PS: Don’t try to tell me that these items of clothing aren’t as cool as I think they are. I won’t listen.

I also have devised a list of 10 legitimate reasons why I should go to London.

1. I miss my family who live there.

2. I like cold weather.

3. I can experiment with fashion with desirable results.

4. I speak English.

5. British Pound Sterling. Have you seen how low the cost of living is there compared to Australia? (let’s forget about the crap exchange rates) MAC lipsticks are £16 compared to $36 AUD.

5. There are endless paid internships available in the fashion industry (I know this because I follow @fashionworkie on Twitter)

6. I love Shakespeare.

7. I’m studying probably the most versatile degree ever, London offers plenty of courses that co-inside with my degree (I have also looked into this with great detail)

8. I like British bands

9. I’m happy with the monarchal government (and it’s future leaders)

10. I can do the best British accent ever.

PS: This is all hypothetical, Mum…

Keeping warm this coming winter – Men’s edition

Unlike myself, many of you may absolutely dread winter. I on the other hand love winter… mostly because of winter fashion!

As winter is creeping up on us, I thought i’d put together a few of my favourite menswear looks for the colder months!

What I love about these looks is that they are so simple and easily achievable! All you need is the basics (button down shirts, plain pullovers, jeans, trousers…) and a killer jacket. These looks are practical, classy and stylish and can take you anywhere from uni to work, from work to dinner, or even to simple hang outs, without looking (or feeling) over dressed.

What I have noticed as well is that the jeans/trousers are tapered and cuffed, giving a really slim and detailed effect to the outfit.

Accessories for men are so easy that i’m getting jealous. All they need to make an outfit work is a signature pair of shoes, a cool jacket and maybe a matching scarf… Am I the only girl here who thinks that the sheer simplicity of these looks and the small yet really effective details are really unfair? Guys, you have it so easy!

Another bonus for men; these pieces are affordable!
