Truth be told, I have this wrap top in three colours and that should say a lot, though currently I’m also eyeing their one shoulder ruffle top since there’s a promo anyway. Best paired with flared pantswide legged denim or even ruffle tiered skirts (I love a blanc number from Ulla Johnson or a woven piece from J.O.A), a top that you can wear two ways, whether on or off shoulder, is always a good one to invest in the long run. Moreover you can always switch it up, for one I prefer going casual by swapping trousers for denim shorts (I’ve been wearing One Teaspoon and Levi’s for years and years now), and you’ll see how easy it is to pull off a fancy gingham top with simple sandals and a sling purse.

A statement coat should be one to ruffle your feathers – or anyone else’s, for that matter. As I floated down the busy streets of Perth city, I half expected someone to spit on my jacket and make a run for it, and I also thought a giant dove might come swooping down, but none of that happened. What did happen though, was when I wore this feather jacket to the casino later that evening and security (who ID’ed me) gushed about how great I looked. Of course I thanked him and before I left he told me, “Oh, really that coat is just incredible. Amazing.” And he’s right, it’s so lovely that I did indeed wear it out the same day it arrived in the mail.

An easy breezy feather jacket can be tossed on over an oversized tee or denim for the sort of easy chic we are constantly seeking. It’s even so lightweight you could probably fit eight of these into a check-in luggage and still manage to fit everything else in. I love that feathers inject as much texture into an outfit as faux fur does. The result is fuss-free, understated and completely effortless.

le blanc

Western Australia has some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, with its soft white sand and glassy turquoise waters. And living close to the city surely has its perks, as the stunning City Beach is less than half an hour drive away. I did venture into the living postcard this afternoon, and as usual the sand beneath my feet felt almost powdery, which reminded me fondly of the newly launched Le Blanc by CHANEL.



Wearing – Le Blanc whitening compact foundation by CHANEL / Red jacket – shop similar DSQUARED2 military double breasted coat and Laveer cadette blazer / Red ribbed turtleneck – shop similar 525 America knit sweater and A.L.C billy sweater / Red flare pants – shop similar Victoria Victoria Beckham flare pants and J Brand selena boot cut pants / CHANEL chevron double flap bag – shop similar CHANEL 2.55 shoulder bag in yellow and vintage CHANEL chevron faux pearl bag
Le Blanc by CHANEL is all about amplifying skin’s healthy radiance by boosting its true light while visually smoothening out pores and imperfections. The velvety side of the sponge is great for light coverage and touch-ups during the day, whereas the spongy side provides a medium-to-high coverage and is best applied in the morning. I alternate between colours 10 and 20 Beige depending on the time of the day, as I find that the lighter shade washes me out under direct sunlight, but it magically brightens up my complexion for evening.
