STYLE QUEEN || Oh, Audrey.

Oh, Audrey.
3 words to describe Audrey's style in my first style crush feature:
Attitude x Femininity

The 1950's is one of my favourite style periods. Rock n Roll emerges and fashion takes a new turn with teenage and young adult fashions became a new marketing niche.

Audrey was so versatile in her approach to fashion. Her ability to express her personality was evident; she often appeared relaxed and full of life in her shoots. Many interviews entail how she didn't care much about fashion really but it is evident she thrived off the way fashion allowed for expression. Her iconic features and continuous smile enamoured millions and her heart for the poor as she neared her death was inspiring.

"Givenchy gave me a look, a kind, a silhouette. He has always been the best and he stayed the best. Because he kept the spare style that I love. What is more beautiful than a simple sheath made an extraordinary way in a special fabric, and just two earrings?" revealed Hepburn." Simplicity.

I especially love the stripes that Audrey wears, her statement hats, well constructed textured dresses and headscarves.

STYLE SET || Winter Heart Warmers

Hello lovely people of the internet world,

I figured i'd start my first blog post with a set of my fav picks for the coming cold months here in New Zealand.

One thing I love about winter is that you can layer and get all bundled up! It's a great excuse to drink some of your favourite tea; mine happens to be english breakfast; and sit with a good book.

This collection has a theme of blacks, burgundy,grey and gold. I'm a huge fan of black. I can't really pinpoint why; it just has a mysterious nature to it. In particular, the black leather jacket centre is by british clothing label AllSaints. I discovered AllSaints whilst holidaying in New York City and fell in love.Their clothing line is much more then a clothing label, recently releasing a film division with a documentary called 'New Music City' which stars none other than the Kings of Leon. Another favourite here is the 'hope' necklace from Zoe & Morgan; my new favourite jewellery design company. Swoon material.
