Fame & Partners Jumpsuit Ready

Well I am a day late this week in my posting schedule, due to some technical difficulties at home with my internet connection. This lead me to think about how much I rely on the internet now to run my own business, for entertainment and for shopping. I am constantly attached to my email, I subscribe to a few movie and TV series streaming services and I either shop online or compare prices online almost every day. Most of the event invitations I receive come through via email too. I have been without internet at home for about two weeks, Which is a big problem. I am eating up my phone data at a rate of knots and I am also worried I am missing things. FOMO you might say.

I attend quite a few events; especially at this time of year. The Christmas Party season has also kicked off - I was at the Burberry VIP Christmas Party last night (but more on that later). The outfit below was one that I put together to check the Fashion Design Studio Runway Presentation at Carriageworks; I saw Sydney TAFE graduate Collections first hand at the media showings before other people got to see them. Another perk of my job; seeing things first.

In an effort to wear something different to Carriageworks; something I don't usually wear - I asked to borrow this Fame & Partners Brooke Jumpsuit in bright blue. I hardly ever wear jumpsuits, I also hardly every wear such a bright colour AND the deep V-Halter neck was a bit of a challenge for me too since it is quite revealing. It posed a bit of a bra challenge; I ended up going to David Jones and getting skin-coloured stick on bra cups. They worked a treat.

I've paired this bright jumpsuit with black accessories to match my hair - they also make me feel a little bit more comfortable about my bright jumpsuit decision. Do you ever do that? Make sure you wear something familiar to ground yourself? I highly recommend you try it when pushing the boundaries wardrobe wise. These patent Louboutin mules have been in my wardrobe for ages and the Yves Saint Laurent clutch was borrowed from a friend last minute.

In an effort to go all out I also visited Georg Jensen on Castlereagh Street in Sydney CBD to pick up the gorgeous Archive Collection necklace and bracelet you see below. The bracelet is an Aura Bangle that you can purchase HERE and the necklace is one of my favourites as it feels a bit like fishbones.

What about you? Do you wear bright colours often? Jumpsuits? And do you plan outfits for big events weeks ahead to get a bit excited? Comment at the end of the post - I love hearing from you all.

Spring Suit Two Ways - Part 2

As promised; here is the second part of my post how to wear a Spring Suit Two Ways. You can check out Part 1 HERE.

You may remember me talking about how bloggers often shop in their own wardrobes to boost pieces that they borrow from companies they work with? I also spoke about shopping with a plan. Think about what you own, the weather and whether the piece you have found shopping will go with pieces back home.

The main point to these two posts about styling a suit two ways is being able to create more than one outfit with the item you would like to buy. I love this MARCS Clothing soft pink suit so much because it's so versatile. In Part 1 of this post, I styled this suit with a white t-shirt, my ACNE STUDIOS sneakers and the same white lunch box clutch you can see below. However in this post I have gone for a slightly more graphic look that could take you from work to dinner or cocktails because it includes strappy wedge heels. It's also a little less formal because I have left the MARCS soft pink suit jacket at home for the warmer weather we have been having.

I have matched this cotton triangle blue striped top to my Pierre Hardy wedges to tie the whole look together. You probably know I am a sucker for details like this. I love matching my shoes to my bags and my lips to my nails. There is something that makes me feel comfortable about the outfit I wear when I think about little details. It also means I have a talking point when I meet people at events for the first time. I ask them about what they are wearing and then when they ask me I can really talk about my outfit! 

How about you? Did you like the way I styled this suit in Part 1? Or this more graphic casual look in Part 2? Comment at the end of the post - I love hearing from you all.
