Fabruary style dare the brain child of Andrea at Fox in Flats was halfway through and I had a thought… what will happen next month? Was I tired of looking at a prompt to dress? The answer was a resounding NO!! I use the prompt as inspiration, to think outside the box and to revel in the glorious world that is style, beauty and fashion.
I have loved Fabruary… Below are the final two weeks of my efforts. I have loved using instagram and twitter to connect with other style lovers scoping out each others efforts.
Week Three: 15.02.13 – 21.02.13
Day Fifteen: Furry
Not owning any fur (faux or real) I used an inspiration pic.. Carrie in Paris at the end of the Sex and the City series. I have always wanted to style a shot recreating this moment. I love the fur muff. I have since found, in the back of my wardrobe, faux feather necklaces that I could have used, but I stick by this!
Day Sixteen: Leggy
Stockings with hearts up the back of the legs from Kiss My Button Vintage, love them and will be a fantastic addition to my Parisian wardrobe for May!
Day Seventeen: Laces
Ribbon laces… for something different (and also because I didn’t have any fancy ones!)
Day Eighteen: Bun
New hair colour – a good way to show it off? A roughly plaited bun wrapped in a topknot
Day Ninteen: Polka Dot
Hanging in bed with a bit of luxury wearing my red and white polka dot dressing gown from Peter Aexander. So comfortable and stylish, could almost be a dress!
Day Twenty: Fragrance
Applying my signature fragrance in the morning, ‘Lovely’ by Sarah Jessica Parker – if you look closely you can see the gleam of the perfume on my skin…
Day Twenty One: Red
Red lips and cherry nails to pair with my black shirt with gold sequin collar from Soho in NYC. Wore red tartan shoes when I went out!
Week Four: 22.02.13 – 28.02.13
Day Twenty Two: Button Up
A coat from Sunny Girl I picked up when I was in Melbourne two years ago. Perfect for freezing weather. Love the ruffled sides and big buttons. Worn with a polka dot button up shirt.
Day Twenty Three: Layers
Two outfits, one torrential rainy day. Outfit One: Brunch – black jeans, loose black tshirt, mustard light knit from New York with a vintage leather jacket. Outfit Two: Dinner & Europe planning with my friend – black jeans, black singlet, longsleeved plaid shirt and the vintage jacket. Both worn with jeans tucked into boots.
Day Twenty Four: Gloss
Home from work, showered and in PJs to watch The Block. No makeup except some lipgloss.
Day Twenty Five: Kicks
Ballet slippers in the design of sneakers – so cute!
Day Twenty Six: Vest
Fabric draping vest I scored from Morpeth Emporium, light pink. LOVE IT!
Day Twenty Seven: Retro
A retro outfit purchased in San Fransisco at an alternative area called the Haight-Ashbury District. From the Betty Page Store (full of retro and pin up clothing). I wear it tied up over a high waisted black skirt from the same store. Andrea asked us to think of a song to pair with our outfits and I knew the perfect 1940s dance number by Benny Goodman called “Sing Sing Sing”.
Day Twenty Eight: Pink
Bad lighting but good for me following four hours sleep after a twelve hour night. Had pink blushed cheeks using Australis Cosmetics products and a pink and purple floral necklace.
