I am so excited for all the amazing outfit choices that the coming seasons will allow me to wear. I've made a few polyvore grids on my new account (here) that include some of the key pieces that I hope to wear in Autumn/Winter - but maybe on a slightly less designer scale, since my student budget isn't that flexible. Hope everyone likes these inspiration/wish list posts since they're a lot of fun (and maybe a bit dangerous for my bank account) to make.

Red Lips

wearing// American Apparel mesh dress, vintage denim dress, Tony Bianco boots

I recently wore this outfit to go shopping with friends on Chapel St. Initially, I thought that the mesh against the denim would clash, but I was pleasantly surprised. The contrast of the thick denim of the shift dress against the delicate mesh made the dress look less like a sack (which has definitely happened before).

I've been trying out some new lip colours during the last couples weeks, and I think that the classic red lip will be a staple of mine. It's a bold colour that suits everyone and matches nearly every outfit I want to wear. Even though I have a slight complex about my big lips, I'm trying to embrace them and not feel so freaked out about wearing bright colours on my lips.

On a side note: The biggest new years resolution of mine this year is to only buy/wear things that are black, white, grey or blue (denim). This way I will never be caught out with the inevitable "I have nothing to wear, even though I have a full wardrobe" problem that every girl goes through. Hopefully I'll be able to keep this resolution up!

Baby its cold outside... not

I don't really know where my current obsession with oversized wool coats has come from. Maybe it's stemmed from my want of weather less than 30+ degrees. Or maybe it's come from my aspiration to look like a chic Swedish blogger by the time Winter comes around - it could really be either of the two. Anyway, I thought doing a post on some amazing coats would be a form of wishful thinking for the future - weather wise, and also style wise.

I'm particulary eyeing off the dark grey coat with lapels, so next time I see one similar in store, I will definitely be purchasing it. If only there was a COS in Australia that provided beautiful coats all year round...
