IFB: Links a la Mode


I was lucky enough to be have my links included in this week's round up. Boo Ya! 

Stepping Up the Style

The thing that keeps fashion interesting is that it's a never-ending project. But that doesn't mean we don't like to strive for perfection anyway. Whether it be following your favorite fashion icons, saying no to the trends, or breaking cliches, style can always be stepped up even when we simplify our wardrobes. This week we have a solid round up of style related posts, so be sure to check them all out!

Links à la Mode: January 23rd

SPONSOR: EastDane David Galan, IRO.Jeans, MSGM, Raleigh Denim, Tretorn Shoes, Jack Spade, Ullens, Ferragamo, Rivieras, The Natural

Shirt: Wildfox Couture, Shorts: Finders Keepers Firehouse in Black, Shoes: Sportsgirl
These shorts are everywhere! Since getting the brightly coloured pair I knew I was onto a good thing with a cut that is flattering, casual yet classy and so comfortable. Lover the Label started the trend (I'm sure theirs feel like liquid satin) and now you can pick up these babies anywhere and everywhere in a rainbow of prints. I've even seen a gorgeous playsuit version!
Speaking of comfort, if you haven't heard of the LA based brand Wildfox or heard me gush about their gorgeously fun lookbooks, then get out of town! This is my second shirt from the brand (also I love foxes in case you hadn't noticed yet) and it feels like I'm wearing nothing the cotton is that soft. No need to wear these shirts in!
Rounding up my casual long weekend look are my $60 Sportsgirl sandals which are a bargain and go with everything. The little heel gives me the extra couple centimetres that I could use! And for the sake of honesty, the headscarf is because I didn't wash my hair. Ain't nobody got time for that when you're mum is making your favourite cake!

Off to the Races

I enjoyed the lovely weekend weather at Kembla Grange Racecourse for a lovely friends birthday. While I wasn't aware racing season was still on (as you can see from the crowds maybe it wasn't ha ha ha) it was such a blissful day drinking champagne, gossiping and checking out what other people are wearing. Everyone does it, there's no shame!
The heat kept a lot of people indoors but I ventured outside to get a couple happy snaps of my Maurie and Eve Gem zipper dress and Forever New bow headband. The best thing about this dress is obviously the zips; they can change the look of the dress in an instant and you can never go wrong with black and white! My only recommendation is you don't unzip them the whole way... because they can go up the whole way.
Have a killer week everyone!

Shoe Review: Zara Pointed Ballerina with Ankle Strap

This is actually my first pair of Zara shoes! Can you believe it? Zara isn't as common in Australia and we don't have the same designs as UK or USA but I'd always admired they're gorgeous designs. I hunted these down on Ebay after seeing them on Atlantic Pacific (fan girl much!) since Blair earmarked them as a blogger wardrobe staple. How could I say no?
Black shoes go with everything but I think it's important for them to still be interesting and that's what these are! The pointiness scared me off for a minute once I saw them in the flesh, but I got over that and now just refer to them as my witch shoes ha ha ha. They're a great work staple but I also like them with pants. Like I said, I've never worn Zara shoes before but I found these to be superb quality (real leather too girls!) and very comfy. Given the style, they are narrow so I'd recommend going up a size if you have wider feet. The 3 straps are all adjustable too so you can easily get your best fit.
Below are some lovely ladies who have worn them to perfection!

So what do you think? Can you wear them or will they wear you?
