My Entry: Next’s International Style Challenge – Brits v’s the Aussies!

Sunday, March 4, 2012

Yellow Pop Pocket Singlet from Beginning Boutique, Staple Body-chains from Beginning Boutique, Wedges from Topshop, Long Cuffs from Miss Selfridge, #64 Enthusiast Lipstick from Chanel

I was contacted by NEXT recently and was asked to take part of this great competition - NEXT's International Styling Competition - Brit's vs. the Aussies. I was delighted to receive an amazing colour-block skirt to work with. As an Aussie, I love bright colours and detail so I wore the skirt with a bright yellow sleeveless top and Staples Body Chain (from Australian store Beginning Boutique). Then I wore my bright red lipstick to tie the whole look together. I had this photo-shoot at the Opera House in front of the Harbour Bridge - an iconic Australian landmark. 

Thank you NEXT for asking me to be a part of this competition, I had so much fun styling this colour block skirt and taking pride in my Australian heritage.

  3. You're more than an Aussie- you are an AWESOME Aussie! :) You deliver your own unique sense of style in a lovely way here. You're chic while also maintaining some edge. Truly love those wedge pumps. Only other thing as beautiful than you here is the lovely city of Sydney.

  4. I really wish I had time to take some of your photos, especially after seeing how you styled the skirt. Very sexy, and VERY Australian, especially with the pop of yellow and the body chains. Good luck! x

  18. Wow. An outfit this sharp and sophisticated convinces me that there are two levels of fashion: the ordinary where most of us operate and the extraordinary where a few exceptional people live. You're in the latter category. In a million years, I could never put together anything as polished and beautiful as this. Kudos.
