Topshop vest

Topshop is having a pretty kick-ass collection at the moment, churning up some good classics that you can keep forever

Previously, I blogged about their longline duster trench which has the power to take you through the seasons.

Today its about this vest.  

 

Its got a tomboy cut which I love.  This vest is beyond versatile. At the top of my head, its works great with a great motif bodycon dress, high waist shorts and skirts, playsuits. Everything

I’m a huge fan of lightweight outerwear, because it makes dressing for summer so much more fun. It comes in two colors, grey and blue. Normally, grey being my favorite color and all, I would take the grey in a heartbeat – but this time the blue wins. Why? Because its perfect, understated and the color works the scuba-ish material perfectly.

Here I kept the colors of my clothes solid and clean because I wanted wear these gladiators out! ✌️

Malaysia Grand Prix

So 2 weeks ago, this happened:

  

I am a huge, huge fan of motorsport – Formula 1 in particular. I’ve been to a few Malaysian Grand Prix and every single time I’ve loved it. The races never disappoint and Sepang is actually my favourite racing track in the world!

The fashion part tho is tricky. What do you wear thats race-appropriate and well, weather appropriate?  I usually forgo the fashionable aspect when it comes to attending races in the grandstands. Comfort all the way (and its only way).

 Tip: Please dont take out your maxi dresses or high heels or pretty white dresses tho  – its just wrong on so many levels. You want to visit labels like Stella Sport or Adidas by Stella if you’re looking for some ideas – at least thats what I did over the years. Her stuff is great for me because I play tennis too and it all works out. Too bad about the collection this year tho, I wasnt feeling any of it. 

To the grid walk, I wore an off shoulder Calvin Klein semi sheer tshirt and a pair of new season Zara statement shorts I picked up last minute, and alot of anti-frizz product in my hair. 😂

Ensambl – The fashionable mobile app

Imagine this:

You’re all packed for New York for the week, you have planned what to wear for places you’re going to. All white ensemble and a pair of 5-inch stilettos that you would probably break-up with in approximately 12 hours.
And while you trusted the weather forecasters promising you great days ahead, the next thing you know you’re looking out of your hotel window wondering how you’re going to be battling frosty winds and 4 inches of snow.

Imagine this:

It’s summer in Melbourne. You’re ready for the convertible drive along Great Ocean Road and you have 5 great summer looks – shorts, dresses, mini dresses, denim cutoffs, mini skirts. But it’s only day one and you’re missing some layers of clothing and jackets you didn’t think you would need at all….

Ha! We’ve all been there, and for some of us we’re always there. Stuck with a suitcase full of all these amazing outfits but you can’t wear them because the weather gods decided to make it hard for you. Sitting in a puddle of clothes on the floor in despair. Yes, we all have been there.

But, something great is brewing.
We’re happy to introduce a new and refreshing mobile application – Ensambl.

Ensambl is a mobile app that curates outfits for inspiration and displays them according to the weather. (We’re thinking ‘genius’!) The inspiration behind Ensambl was when New York had a major snow storm last year that left founder Dalia Strum, unprepared and at a loss for outfits to wear.  Two hours later, 30 pages deep on Google and 15 fashion sites later, searching for outfit inspiration, Dalia started thinking about the fact that there needs to be an easier way of finding looks to browse through and save! 

And we couldn’t agree more.

 

Download the Ensambl app for free and spread the word! Here is how you can navigate the app:

  • You can change the state by clicking on the weather icons in the upper left corner
  • Save favorite images by swiping right (or clicking the heart below)  
  • Discard images by swiping left (or clicking the X icon below)
  • Tap on any images for more info
  • Touch the heart in the upper right corner to browse through your favorites
