Black Lace Dress

Saturday, November 18, 2017 Simone Foster 1 Comments

A knock on the door this weekend brought me a pretty black dress from Dresslily. I had to try it on immediately and decided to style this as a year end inspiration for you for office parties and Christmas gatherings.

With it's high collar and conservative style, to stand out from the crowd ( as you know me by now - more is more!)  I decided to funk up this look with large loop fishnet stockings to give this dress a little twist.

Having watched " Say Yes To The Dress" several times, it always seems like a belt would do the trick to finish off and complete the look for those lovely bridal gowns. So taking on this cue,  I threw on this stretchable black belt with gold interlock clasp and paired it with my glitter party gold slingbacks for the completed year end office party look!

To be safe, a black clutch or gold bag would likely be the obvious choice but I could not resist adding a little pop of colour with this pretty bucket bag in blue. I love the circular wooden handle and it does also come with a long chain strap for those cocktail events where you need your hands to hold that lovely glass of champagne and munch on canapes.

Thank you to all at Dresslily for this lovely outfit and I certainly will be wearing this dress with different styling this holiday season.

Call It The Blues

Saturday, November 11, 2017 Simone Foster 4 Comments

What a rough week ! I was down with a viral flu and lost my voice. Felt sick as a dog and yet having to pull myself through the day with daily routines of houswork, dog walks and seeing to the family meals wore me out totally!

The only colour I could see was just the blues... finally as I started to feel a little better - it was time to head out the doors for a little breather and a much needed good cup of coffee!

I have been seeing so many 11.11 sale specials from various online portals that it was driving me nuts! Wanting to buy so many things but it's just the pull and gimmick of getting an item on a sale ( I bet it was not that much of a discount to be very honest) that had me scrolling site after site for great deals and even adding stuff to my cart that I don't even need - just because it was on sale. Then just at the final moment when I was about to click " checkout" I had a moment of awakening and decided to clear the cart instead! And there you go... 11.11 singles day sale, nothing in the cart and no shopping done....

And that's why they call it the blues!!

Tickle Me Pink

Saturday, November 04, 2017 Simone Foster 2 Comments

For some reason ( and this may actually spill the beans on my actual age...) but I started to feel a little nostalgic and reminiscent of the past recently. Particularly so of my teenage years and uni days. 

And so, I tapped on iTunes my favourite band of all time -Tears for Fears, and immediately the memories started flowing. I recall how I painstakingly recorded my favourite songs of the band on a casette tape and played them on my walkman with headphones on as I sat on the school bus every morning who picked me up as early as 6am in the darkness, to head for school.

Their songs were of extreme vision and each song had so much meaning to the various stages of my life. It shaped and impressed the views of the world on me at that time. The struggles of mankind. And to this day, those songs still hold such strong political meaning.

Back to this playful look, its no denying I am into blush pink at the moment and with the embroidered detailing on the neckline as well as the long sleeves, this was a hit for me!

I hope you enjoyed this look and please share with me which is your favourite band of all time. It would be fun for us to reminisce together.

Slip Sliding Away:: Gingham Slides and Maxi Dress

Sunday, October 29, 2017 Simone Foster 1 Comments

Another crazy busy week. Somehow I can't seem to find enough hours in the day to do everything that I had planned to do. Struggling as the day goes along and with the sweltering heat ranging from 33 - 35 degrees celsius, if I had the option of running my errands in swimwear I would!! But I don't have the body of a 20 something anymore and before I scare people off the street, I had better stick to my long maxi dresses which offer comfort and cover up!

Found these cute Gingham slides in Cotton On and had to have them. They are so pretty with the exaggerated bow and my bamboo Cult Gaia inspired bag which I got online ( and I believe many bloggers have been trending these all through Summer) was the perfect match for each other. Of course, I took my crap out of the bag before this shoot but believe you me, this bag could fit a fair bit.

Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this casual look and have yourselves a great weekend ahead!
