The Cape coat seems to be pretty ‘hot right now!’

This one is like a white tuxedo jacket! I think they give you an extra bit of class, something eye catching…. and who can go wrong with white on black.

I’ve gone for a bit of a contrast look, business on top, party down the bottom…. leather boots above the knee and leather skirt. It’s a bit of a daring look but exude confidence and anyone can pull it off.

On above the knee boots…. do they? Don’t they? look at bit well…. street walker haha… ! NAH do it right and it’s a big thumbs up. I’d say avoid the patent shiny leather and super super high heels (pretty woman style) and you should be right. BUT there’s a never say never with anything… it’s all about what you pair it with.

The Tunic (like a long top with a slit down the side) is my new favourite thing!

From Country road (and a shout out to CR for a fabulous autumn collection, just GORG!) I have paired the very comfy top with a black skirt with a white stripe ….. I tried it all black but I think breaking it up popped it a little better.

This outfit is great for a slimming effect (and I can’t go past a good monochrome style), Black of course always does the job and the white lines down the side lengthens the body and creates a attractive silhouette.

This is an outfit you want to wear on a fat day!!!!

ALSO if you want to go a little more sophisticated, tie the hair back…… and if you wear glasses (which I only do sometimes…..they are prescription but it more depends what I’m wearing haha don’t think the optometrist would like to hear that!) it’s edging towards sexy librarian (who doesn’t want that!)

This was my attempt at a little rock chick! Well as rock chick as I’ll go anyways!

I went to a gig (and let’s be honest the sweaty, jumping around of adult men that swing their long locks around, screaming atmosphere, is not really for me!!) but I thought this was a chance to mix it up…..go a little edgy! Right? (or more….so I didn’t stand out like a sore thumb).

I think the key is…. if you’re not a rock chick (and I’m clearly not!) or not dressing in your usual comfortable get up (and what you know), don’t over do it with the look…. maintain your style and style principles but change it up a little.

I love a good short leather skirt…. (every girl needs one) and I paired it with a sheer top. I think some sheer can be trashy if gone too far….but done the right way, edgy and funky…..!!! Although my style clearly comes out with the shoe…. this is me all over!!! Keep what you stand for but don’t be afraid to try something a little different. And rolling (or shushing…. the arms) is a must…. it transforms from polished to a bit more relaxed.
