Hi all, short and simple as always. Just wanted to clarify the best way to contact the blog for all of your style, interior and DIY queries. The best thing to do is to email firstname.lastname@example.org. I will do my best to get to all of them but please be patient. Thanks all xx
My Feast Re-love Project piece of furniture is finally finished and I’m so happy with the outcome – I kinda wanna keep it, but of course I can’t because it’s going to be up for auction on ebay on the 9th of May with all proceeds going to the salvos. There are 9 designers in total participating in the project and I think I’ll be bidding on some of their items myself – amazing one of a kind transformations! Make sure you get bidding from the 9th of May to take home a unique piece of Australian design.
So happy to be back doing my fashion posts – sorry it’s been so long. I’ll keep this short (like my shirt dress), but I love love love this jacket. It’s not the most expensive jacket in the world ($60) so I kind of bought it in black too. I think I like the black more (I’ll post it soon), but the blue is a bit fun. I just think the shape is amazing – the power shoulder detail, the feature around the hip, the panelled stitching, the exaggerated collar – it’s all so flattering and chic. I highly recommend as a staple if you’ve got a bit of rock ‘n’ roll in you! Happy Wednesday xx
So sorry I’ve been MIA the past couple of weeks – there has been so much on. We opened a pop-up store in Adelaide, it was Easter and Dale and I moved into our first home (blog post will be coming soon).
I had an absolute ball putting this store together (from concept to opening day) with a lot of amazing help from the VM girls and the store staff. It was a big job, on a tiny budget, but hey, I’m used to that. Check out how we made it happen…
This is the concept I came up with many weeks ago. I really wanted to create a pop up store that literally looked like it has just dropped in – dropped in at a moment’s notice, and then packed up and disappeared just as quickly as it arrived. And there came the parachute and shipping crate concept…
This was what the store looked like when we arrived – pretty plain and very ‘sterile’ looking (not the typo look). We had just 72 hours to turn this space into an amazing Typo Drop In. What a challenge…
Some of the guys from the VM team putting the finishing touches on some of the ‘Drop In’ elements. Looking good guys!
The finished store. I had so much fun putting all the elements together – the counter certainly took me to longest, but I love the effect of the final result. Of course it isn’t a typo store without our amazing product and the store staff along with the VM team worked tirelessly to unpack box after box of our fabulous stock until the store was full. It looks great – I want to buy it all!
A great couple of days, an even better result, all thanks to the Typo team. Good job everyone and bring on the next one!!! If you happen to be in Adelaide, make sure you check out the store before it packs up…
If you love the block, make sure you watch this little 3 min clip of our block house photoshoot.
Amazing work Karina Jade Photography! Thanks for capturing all of our hard work from our perspective xx
How nice is it to stay at a hotel? Even only for a night or two, even if it’s only down the road from where you live? It’s just so nice to get away and pretend you’re on a mini-holiday. That’s exactly what Dale and I did this past weekend and it was so fun. We were completely touristy (even though we’ve been to Sydney many times) going to see the harbour bridge and the opera house and we even had a ride on the ferris wheel at Luna Park. But then back at the Hotel in the daytime (while Dale was on the Mitre 10 road trip), I played dress ups in our room! I’m really into these neutral colours with the rose gold elements – a little on the futuristic side which is a bit fun. It was really lovely being in Sydney this weekend and I’m looking forward to heading back there for the Block Allstars auction this week! Woo Hoo! xx
P.S. I’m really excited to be adding a bloglovin’ button to the blog this week but if you already have a bloglovin’ account (and if you don’t, you really need to get on it to keep track on your fav blogs), you can add mine here. Thanks in advance guys! xx

Necklace (hexagon): Lovisa
Necklace (circle/triangle): Asos
Finders Keepers are releasing some amazing pieces this season (like every season) and I just love how easy their clothes are to wear. I love this dress in particular because it’s a great twist on the current mirrored floral baroque trend that’s sweeping our runways. Instead of doing a crazy bright floral, they’ve opted for a black and white print with a beautiful bright neon coral at the back and on the sleeves to balance the print and make the dress a real ‘look at me’ statement! To lift the dress out of its casual status, I’ve glammed it up with a real staple gold jacket from Forever New and a sequin clutch from theiconic.com.au. I love a piece that can be dressed up or down – you really get your money’s worth! xx
P.S. On a different note. You must check out this blog: almostfame – it’s so cute! Seems I’m inspiring some mini fashionistas in the making… xx
Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past week – crazy busy! I’m really excited to share this look with you guys though. Obviously I’m still in love with my Maurie and Eve polka dot skirt as I’ve been rocking it a bit, but I’m really loving this new Cameo baroque shirt with the crazy over-the-top bling cluster. As the weather has started to cool (slightly) this week, I’ve been getting really excited about long sleeves. This outfit is a compromise of the current weather – long sleeves, but legs out! Can’t believe I’m kind of looking forward winter – never thought that would happen! xx
Have a great weekend guys! xx
