Happy New Year

Happy New Year!  I trust you have had a safe and enjoyable New Year and that 2014 will be a year full of blessing and joy.. and great style.

top ; katies
pants : classic pant slim leg / katies
shoes : vintage
accessories : pearl drops & satin cuff wtih silver and pearl clasp
bag ; myer

I wore this outfit on Christmas Eve to my church's Carols Service.  The top has a lovely drape and flow and is very comfortable and cool to wear.  The white is such a fresh crisp tone and works very nicely with my black pieces.  The top was available in 3 colours and black was not one of them *sad face*... I would have been all over this top in black.

The top makes what I consider to be a 'subtle' statement so I kept everything else to a minimum.  A simple silver and pearl drop earring, black cuff and vintage sandals with a great stacked heel.  A silver and black clutch finished the outfit.

I promised to show you some Christmas goodies and here they are!

The bag was a gift from my sister.  It's by Things Terrific which is an Australian family owned company.  I only recently discovered them and am very impressed with the lovely soft leather and quality of this bag.

And these sandals were a gift from my husband.  I had fallen in love with the LD Tuttle 'The Watch' Sandal and spent some months trying to find something similar here in Australia.  The end result were these Django & Juliette sandals which I am so pleased with.  Again gorgeous soft leather and seriously comfortable footwear.

If you have read this far, here is a teaser for my next post!  Having thought about it for 12 months, I woke up New Years Day and decided to have my hair cut short.  Method or madness?  We shall see.

  5. Oh I can't wait to see the new hair! I'm so into short hair and I've always loved yours. I've been thinking about a pixie myself. I've done it before and I'm feeling it too!

  6. It only published half my comment so here's the rest.

    This is a beautiful clean and classic outfit. I love the stylish bag and shoes. These are some great gifts. I enjoy your styling because I can see the shape and draping of the clothes clearly. I think you have a good eye of what you like and what looks great on you!

  10. Really stylish outfit, lovely drape on the top. Pleased to find your blog, as another Aussie, I,m in Tasmania.

  11. Hi Jill! Thanks for visiting. Will head over and check out your blog. Love connecting with other Aussie fashionistas :)

  12. Yup. Very modern looking. I'm going to watch you warm-weather posts with interest. I often feel bullied into bright color, and often just want to hang in my darks. Good for you. White doesn't count as a bright ... it's just no color and has a similar gestalt as black, I think!

  13. love the white and black look with those little pops of gold! super cute!
