Barbra on set during the filming of On A Clear Day You Can See Forever
Barbra Steisand in On A Clear Day You Can See Forever from 1970, is my inspiration for this Sunday’s Style Envy.
1960s/1970s silouhettes and psychedelic prints in bold colours is the basis for a vibrant and fun wardrobe. A lesson in accessorising, Ms Streisand tops off almost every look with a hat while rose tinted glasses and pussy bow ties add that extra stylish touch!
Streisand’s character in the film is a little quirky and her wardrobe reflects that. Also look out for a young Jack Nicholson in a yellow roll-neck jumper!
I like to follow a rule, if it looks wrong….it’s probably right!
Ok so this isn’t always true and I must admit I have had may fair share of wrongs, but I do believe in mixing prints. Example this nautical striped tee and leopard track pants. These casual pieces become fashion-forward when paired together. It shouldn’t work but it does….or at least I think so!
The key to this look is to picking pieces with similar colours and tones, so no clashing colours and prints!
This Shoesday Tuesday I have chosen a pair of monochrome heels that are currently discounted in the monochrome madness. These “Gabriella” heels are from Bionda Castana and I must admit it was difficult to choose just one pair, with so many beautiful styles on offer. You can find these ones by clicking here.
So I have more than one item on this Monday’s Must Haves. I really couldn’t help myself when I saw all these beautiful flats on the FARFETCH website’s sale, with an extra 20% off the sale price for one day only. Check out the bargains for yourself by clicking the links below the images.
Living in Tropical North Queensland is very easy, as is living by the beach and having this beautiful view on my doorstep.
Palm Cove is located 25 minutes from Cairns city centre and is one of eight beaches that is surrounded by tropical rainforests, has white sand and dreamy aqua coloured water. My relaxed, off-duty look is inspired by this place. The ease and lightness of a linen shirt paired with some fun and quirky embroidered denim shorts. My cat-ey sunglasses and hot pink lip add a bit of glamour to an otherwise casual look.
My favourite place in Palm Cove is Vivo. It is the perfect place for breakfast, lunch or dinner with spectacular views and incredible food!
I feel so lucky to have lived here…..but we are on the move again and I will update you on our next location soon!
If you follow me on Instagram (@huntinginheels) you will have already seen these pointed toe wonders on my feed. I regrammed them from one of my favourite fashion sites; We Wore What. This is what I would categorize as the perfect boot. Crafted from supple leather, with a sensible heel and some western attitude. I like my boots a little bit mod and ankle grazing. So they either have to be a little bit cowboy or a little bit sixties, but if they are a subtle mix of the two I am in booty heaven, à la this pair from Sigerson, called the NINA. They also come in black and a charcol grey, but I have my eye on this racy red pair!
I must admit that this “Monday Must Haves” post should also come with a side note; must win lottery to afford products advertised! Well a girl can dream….can’t she?
My eyes and heart have been drawn to all things tactile over the past couple of seasons. It is not enough to be satisfied by the visual, but there is also the need to interact with the clothing. Fringe, fur (preferably faux), lace, beading, supple leathers and foamy neoprene, there are so many fabrics to choose from with technology continuing to develop them further. These developments have been so successful that designers are now using light weight knits and leather in their Summer collections!
This Fendi fringe masterpiece is an example of how I like my fashion right now. A little bit quirky and that screams “reach out and touch me!”
