So it's been an age since I've posted anything on here, which I feel pretty bad about as I'd really got into the swing of it, but I took my 'gap year' and blogging is pretty challenging from the back end of nowhere in south east asia, so my apologies! But Im back, and full of inspiration so here goes!

Here's another beauty, this time from one of my favourite magazines Fan The Fire. Ive been reading FTF for about a year now, after I came across it on Issuu when I was researching for a uni project, and it's addictive - believe me! It's got everything, from detailed and insightful film reviews, to a generous style section with at least 3 or 4 editorials each issue. And even better, it's free to read and download online! :)
I LOVE this womenswear editorial from issue 37 - available [here].

How lush is this fashion editorial by Mariah Jelena for Faint Magazine? Im in love! The styling is by Christina Dietze & Rhia Taranto - and it is so beautiful, the body paint just finishes off the outfits. Very Miss Unkon S/S 2011! xo

The leather skirt has been on the style scene for a little while now, and at first I have to say I really wasn't sure! The only leather in my wardrobe at the moment is my trusty biker jacket, a timeless piece that see's me through every season. But the more I see of the leather skirt, the more it's growing on me. Celebrity style icons were the first to jump on the style bandwagon, leading the way for the rest of the fashion pack. But what sold it for me was how versatile it can be, it literally goes with anything, for any occasion and for any weather! What more can you ask for?
I just love how different one skirt can look when it's styled with a mixture of different pieces! Team it up with a tailored shirt and blazer combo for a day in the office, or throw on a crisp white Tee for coffee with the girls!

Merging your own personal style with a look that's suitable for a working environment is a tricky task for any girl starting out in the fashion industry. There's pressure to look stylish and chic, without looking like your dressed for a night on the town, and when it comes to shopping for the right look - where do you even begin? Luckily, everyones favourite one-stop online shop ASOS has once again come to the rescue! They've created their 'working wardrobe' collection, featuring everything you could possibly need to smarten up your wardrobe. I was so impressed with how fresh and (most importantly) youthful their styling was, there is nothing worse than rocking up on your first day at work dressed like a middle-aged bank clerk! Check out these little beauties...
So I start my new job as an Assistant Stylist in just over a week, and the pressure is kind of on to get my wardrobe in shape :/ Ive been hunting for some great statement pieces to freshen up the bits Ive already got, and these are 3 of the latest additions to my collection! :) Im sticking to a muted colour scheme, to make it easier to mix and match - but with a few bold pieces to make each outfit a bit punchier! :)
You can find all three of these at RiverIsland.com

Im a little jewelry obsessed at the moment, especially anything featuring raw crystals and gemstones. Im loving the rustic natural styles that are popping up all over the place, and have fallen just a little bit in love with these beauties I came across recently by Stone and Honey!
