Laetitia Casta for Vogue Paris

I adore Laetitia Casta. Therefore, I was delighted to see her on the cover of Vogue Paris.The colour pallet is subtle yet strong. Definitely suiting my aesthetic.

Be like Laetitia; forgot about shoes, wear chiffon, ruffles and keep your hair natural.

Shape & Form

"I'd like to wear it but (insert your own word)" I'm sure everyone has mumbled this statement at some point in response to catwalk fashion vs real life fashion and how their body shape fits into that. Blending the two is not that easy. I have worn pieces that didn't suit me because they were fashionable. Or looked so awkward carrying off a look because I thought I may have looked silly that I did look so.
On the other hand I have also let silly insecurities affect what I have worn. Like the time I wouldn't wear high heels because I felt I was already too tall (I'm 5'8 - which is pretty normal anyway). I got over that quick fast.

Anyway, what I have learnt is that you should not let fashion or insecurities get in your way when you are practicing a form of self expression like dressing yourself. Dress who you are and if people think you look silly then that's their problem. However, I think when you follow your own innate style then most people will admire your individuality.

About the picture: I took this photo about a week ago in Sydney, Australia. Currently, their are art pieces randomly adorning the city streets. This was taken in a little side street close to Martin Place.
I think it suits this post well.

It's cold outside and all I can think about is rugging up. Warmth is my key goal this morning. That's why I'm liking this picture of Greta Garbo. She is all the elegance required this morning.
Hope everyone on this side of the world is rugged up and comfy.

Great Southern Land

I have been travelling around beautiful Australia this last month.Thus, I have not updated my blog for a while. I will be putting up blog posts about my trip over the next couple of days. Mostly regarding shopping, purchases and beautiful scenery.

In other news. I have changed my blog header to a picture of me (conceited much?). I want to start using more of my own photos. I thought I should start by shaping my blog around that idea first. However,I did feel incredibly silly clicking the upload button on my settings. A fact which makes the next sentence rather illogical.

Illogical sentence? Well here it goes - For no other reason other than I have too much Libra in my astrological chart; I have put up the other options for my blog title picture.
