During VAMFF 2019, I had a very exciting collaboration with Australian brand; Mimco.
VAMFF is a time that all fashionistas come out and flaunt their own personal style, and I was proud to represent this Aussie brand during the festival.
Mimco has always been a brand that has been very close to my heart, my first ever designer bag was the notorious button bag that every Australian it girl had back 10 or so years ago. I was 16 at the time and had saved up all my pennies from my part-time job then, a check out chick. I knew once I saw it, I needed to have it. When I finally saved up enough, I was in awe of the buttery soft leather and the shiny buttons on either front clasp pocket shined and sparkled when the sun hit. This was my key investment bag which I wore for many years during early teens.
Now 10 years on, my style has completely changed yet again. I love to wear stand out pieces with textured details when it comes to accessories. When I picked the waver mini bucket bag in snake embossed leather, I wanted a piece that was different, something I could wear day to night. I also can wear this cross body, or just hanging off my shoulder for a more relaxed look.
I picked the moontide slingbacks, which also come in black, but you'll be surprised what a good wine colour can do, it can change up your whole outfit. When trying on these heels in jeans, I did an Instagram poll and at first everyone was voting for them in black, but eventually, after the end of the 24 hours the votes came in and the wine was the winner. I think we're afraid of trying different colours with shoes, we always opt for the safe option, the colour that will go with everything. But trust me, this wine colour will go with most outfits. Again, if you're looking for a versatile shoe, this colour can be worn with your favourite denim to a little black dress. The texture is half suede and half patent, which again relating back to my current love of textures and tones along with the gold tip.
The arc hoop earrings are so unique, I love how you can even detach certain pieces from this, and you can also wear them mismatched. YES, you read right, mismatched, I love wearing mismatched earrings, it's different, fun and bold. The little detail of gold, mixed with wooden contrast on the earrings gives that artistic and sophisticated look.
I have a thing for tortoiseshell, and these mimette barettes and allegory sunglasses do the trick! I layered the clips and opted for two of the same, it's currently on trend, but it's also quite stylish and can give some detail to a boring ponytail. PS the clips are also made in France, which made them extra special.
Play with trends, style with texture, the world is your fashion oyster foxes.
Till next time...
