Boy oh boy is it busy in Adelaide right now! It’s festival time and pop up bars and venues have scattered across the city. I’ll most likely be enjoying the season’s merriments whilst wearing this pink and red duo. The gingham print set is part of casper&pearl’s upcoming collection Abracadabra which I have been fortunate to preview. Inspired by witchcraft, the range features exclusive prints, playful shapes and structured silhouettes. I have my eye on a few other pieces too but before they become mine I’ll see them down the runway. casper&pearl will be showcasing their A/W range at their first solo fashion show next week. Tickets are available online here. It’s sure to be a bewitching evening.

Tee Party

Every gal should have a go to tee, a favourite basic t-shirt to rely upon and for me, it’s this one. You may have noticed that I’ve featured it on the blog before and I’ll likely style it again. It doesn’t have to be expensive nor does it need to have an intricate design. Its purpose is to encompass an outfit, bringing all the pieces together cohesively. Whether it’s oversized, has a funnel neckline, cropped or is of the silky variety. You may already own your go to tee and call upon it in times that your outfit requires an effortless look or are on the hunt for one, it truly is a worthy wardrobe staple.

Many astute fashion enthusiasts have tapped into this already but I thought I’d share nonetheless. I’ve been looking for some comfortable everyday shoes that are both versatile and on trend. Nothing quite compares to black Nikes paired effortlessly with a white shirt, leggings and a camel coat. A basic go to for simply running errands and half the price if you have tiny feet like me!

This dress. Where do I begin? It’s just got that je ne sais quoi. The fabric is similar to neoprene with piping following the neckline, arms and mid section. I paired it here with a box bag, simplistic watch and a pair of metallic thread socks for good measure. On days when I am going for more of a laid back look, I tie a plaid shirt around my waist and slip on a trusty pair of chucks.

 I wore this outfit recently to the SA Designer Showcase event as part of The Adelaide Fashion Festival. The dress needn’t any accessorizing with its pineapple detailing and asymmetric pleats. The exotic print itself reminds me of a fruity Rorschach test.  I completed the look with minimal makeup, a bold pair of coral heels and a hologram handbag.

All in all it was an enjoyable evening, complete with bounteous cocktails, incredible garments and copious amounts of canapés.

Mirror Hollogram Box Bag $78

Senso Gina Sandals $199

The return of the hologram is not merely a matter of Tupac’s beyond the grave appearance at Coachella. The latest fashion collections prove that three-dimensional photographic imaging should not be bound to the ornamental design of 90s pencil cases. A couple of stand out Spring Summer 2013 pieces are Jonathan Saunders variation of metallic illuminated a-line skirts paired with crew neck nude knits and Burberry Prorsum’s holographic frenzy of collared shift dresses and fitted v neck silhouettes. Stella McCartney’s Resort 2013 collection of white and animal print tailored pieces are accessorized with reflective clutches and even the imminent cult classic, Proenza Schouler PS11 is now available as a pearlescent gem. So these are my favourites, now to decide which to purchase.
