The leg extenders

Nude is on my mind. Nude heels that is!
Each and every time I pass a shoe section or store I seek out the perfect nude shoe.One that will make my legs grow to obscene heights while lending me an air of 1950's charm. However, the range of bare hued gems seem to be alluding my path! Either poorly made, ill fitting or simply none in stock! "Not popular in winter" according to some.
Ah well, I may need to get this supply and demand chain in motion. These legs arent going to do this alone.

Eva Green in The Dreamers

The styling of Eva Green's character in Bernardo Bertolucci's The Dreamers hooked me right in. I wish I could find more pictures to post but hopefully the screencap and collage I made will suffice. That being said, you need to watch this film! Her style is amazing and organic at the same time. Everything from the mop like piece on her head (seriously) to the long black gloves she slams into the wall in a rage are absolutely magical. Please make sure you use a clean mop!

In a world of their own

Catherine McNeil and Abby Lee Kershaw for Vogue(Australia) 50 year Celebration edition.

This photo shoot is breathtaking. Immediately upon viewing the pictures I wanted to paint my nails a milky white, smear on dense pigmented eye shadow and walk bare foot on rocks by the sea in nothing but lace and beading.
I will need to post the entire shoot taken by Greg Kaddel as it really is simply delightful.

Outfit post

Alright, I have decided to place an outfit post. This picture is about a year old. But, I had to start somewhere right?? The posing is a little "I'm going to the prom so I smile like this" kind of thing. Only, I finished school a few years ago and where I grew up we called it "the formal".

Dress - Billion Dollar Babes, Bag - Vintage, Necklace - Tiffany's

A step towards an outfit post

I would like to start doing outfit posts. I'm a little awkward in front of the camera so I thought I would take a small step by posting an introduction picture (of which you cannot see what I'm wearing - WT???????.) Yes, I'm weird. Hopefully, this will spur me on to post some proper outfit pictures and maybe just maybe get down some RUSHesque posing down faster than you can say "Sass and Bide".

Anyway, hope everyone is having a great day!

Be inspired by Tallulah Morton

I adore this picture of Tallulah Morton. It's such a lovely step away from the whole "fierce" movement. Which I do like very much. However, it's nice to add a little colour and remove a sequin or two everynow and then.

Style Profile - Alexandra Agoston

Australian born Alexandra is stunning by anyone’s standards. But what makes her more exciting is her racially-ambiguous good looks. You can't really decipher what nationality she is which lends to her appeal. Combine this with her simple aesthetic (clean face, simple hair and uncomplicated clothes) which establish an amazing canvas for the designer.

Want to channel her off duty look?

Grow out your hair and avoid hair colour. Stick to a muted colour palette highlighted by bare skin.

Thursday Street Style - Look of the day

This look is brought to you courtesy of The Sartorialiast.
It is simple yet effortless and also a bit shabby. A relaxed and stylish vision! Perfect for a Thursday style snippet.
It would be terribly easy to recreate, as I’m sure many of you would have some if not all of the pieces in this look.
Hope you like!

Style Syrup is back

The hiatus is over!

It has been over a year since my last post. But, I am ready to relaunch this blog and turn it in to something I am very excited about. Of course my readership is likely down to one (me).

But in any case, if you are out there and you read this than I thank you for taking time out to read and hope you find something interesting.
