I am somewhat feeling like Charlie and the Chocolate factory right now due to the overload of Resort 18 offerings. From Chanel to that incredible showing by Maria Grazia Chiuri in the Los Angeles hills for Dior, to the yet to be watched live stream of Louis Vuitton from Japan. No matter what the monolith steadfast fashion houses showcase though I am an Australian fashion lover to my core. Dion Lee did not disappoint on Day 1 nor did the style set that attended. The colour of the day, black, black and more black. Which just proves that black truely doesn’t ever go out of style because of its versatility and the never ending ways in which it can be worn as demonstrated below. There is some serious style lust happening for me over Kaitlyn as well as Brooke but that pant suit from Georgia….perfection.

If this is what a romantic sexy pirate looks like then sign me up. Zimmermann as anticipated did not disappoint with their showing at New York Fashion Week. I am still daydreaming about the strikingly polished intricate construction of a particular one-shouldered white lace, purply floral piece. Let’s face it though, I am daydreaming about having every piece from the collection in my wardrobe. A girl can dream right?

I have a thing for timeless, seasonless, versatile, effortless clothing. There is no better example of this than the humble shirtdress. A girl can never have too many shirt dresses in her wardrobe. Dress them up with heels or wear them casually with ballet flats, sandals or even your whitest sneakers. Take style notes from Leandra Medine with those sky high platforms or Olivia Palermo with the shirt tied around the hips. Or better yet channel Giovanna Battaglia by cinching it your waist with a belt, show some thigh and put on your best sunglasses.

It has been a long time coming for my second and very far apart articles in this late bloomer of a series. I felt quite a lot of pressure from myself as to who could follow in the footsteps of my first girl crush. Was someone such as a fashion blogger worthy of being my second? It was not until I stumbled across Maja Wyh that I knew indeed she was a formidable women to add to this series. Maja Wyh is a german theatre and film student turned fashion blogger treading where very few have before her. I became a fan of Maja courtesy of pinterest and ever since then I have had quite a fascination with her. There is no one quite like her in the style stakes. She is part fashion goddess, part style chameleon. She has such a unique presence about her. Maja’s experimental and eclectic styling is a constant source of inspiration… or more often than not, source of wardrobe envy. She elegantly mixes tomboy, with a touch of boho and quite a delicate dash of rock n roll. She fuses high fashion, high street and vintage in one outfit. Grunge with sleek, minimal with layered, all the while making oversized look elegant, feminine, flattering and damn sexy. In a world where everyone seems to be wearing less and less clothing, with the opinion that skin is sexy. Maja is a lesson in elegance, sexy-reserved, minimally detailed romance and that looking at the whole picture is certainly worth your while.
In an interview she did for gds-online.com, she cites that her ambition is to inspire other people. Be it with art, photography or fashion. She says that blogging is about authenticity. That what we see is real. It is her. Her blog is a platform for self-realisation. If you head to her blog majawyh.com, not only does fashion and her styling have you scrolling for hours. It is her beautiful curation of art, rooms and her own personal polaroids that keeps you mesmerized. For a person who started taking photos only a year ago, first with a self timer and then later by her Mum. She has certainly proved in a short time that she is a force to be reckoned with. Her beautiful effortless aesthetic combined with her alluring quiet confidence and fearless attempt to try something experimental combines perfectly, all the while staying completely relevant. I unequivocally recommended you follow her blog http://majawyh.com …. you will click back on her “older” posts all day long and be fixated. Come to think of it, you might just find me over there right now.

So if the planets align & my path crosses with that of Prince Harry during my time in London I know who my go to princess fashion house would be. All hail Elie Saab & his Spring 2014 Couture collection. The perfect balance of femininity with a rebellious chic peek-a-boo risqué flash of skin edge…the perfect combination for a contemporary of the cheeky prince. I think the queen, if not definitely Kate would approve…no?
