colour magic; style rookie runway looks

Thursday, August 04, 2011

So I was just browsing through a few background pictures on Polyvore (oh, what a surprise!) and came across this awesome editorial by none other than Teen Vogue. I adore the cover picture, somehow that grey sweat top sits so perfectly under the peachy maxi and the Mary-Jane platform heels fit like a dream on the quirky model (refer to polyvore collage). And I know, I've used this template on Polyvore before, but it's one of my favourites, it's fits with such a variety of themes. I love the collage, the denim crop jacket is just adorable over the skirt and has a total 'straight off the runway'  feel to it. The first image, featuring mix-matched florals is possibly my favourite. I love how well done the pattern matching is. Usually it can be quite risky to attempt to pair two or more patterns together, but the the styling is so perfect! And aren't those shoes amazing? The rest of the spread can be seen here.

Sorry for the initial absence! I've been suffering from a typical Winter illness and also I've also been lacking in blog post inspiration and didn't want to bore such fabulous readers as yourself! The start of this week wasn't too great and getting a cold and a stomach bug didn't make it any better. But lucky for me it was a short term sickness and I've come to the conclusion that lots of sunshine, bed rest and reading is the cure for everything. My exams went very well and I'm very happy with the results, thank-you for the fabulous wishes!
P.s: Get excited Australians! Spring is just around the corner...I can't wait to do some blog posts that are dripping in floral, I've been waiting so long!

There are lots of discount shops, so why should you buy a bag for its full price when you can get it half a price at a discount shop? If you are not into buying new bags for a fortune, you can look for shops that sell used bags at very low prices. [url=][/url]
