MYNT hearts AU!

mynt1792-001

 On Tuesday, I ventured out into a part of Melbourne I’d never been to before, to check out some clothing from MYNT1792. I’d heard of Mynt previously due to their awesome collaboration in the US with a few of my favourite bloggers! This is a company that knows the value of bloggers! Of course, I LOVE THAT! They very recently expanded to open an Australian site, which I am super excited about!

 First up, make sure you check your measurements when ordering! These are US sizes, which are a bit different to AU sizes. They go up to a US 26, which is more like a AU30! Yep, you heard right, they cater up to a size 30!

One of the things I really loved about the collection is the attention to detail. They really didn’t scrimp when it came to the small things. From gorgeous liner fabrics, fabulous pleating, hardwear details and all of the pretty cuff buttons! I loved the exposed zips, and contrast colouring they use, and the hits of  lime colour in some of the pieces!

 The pricing point is a little more expensive, but in my opinion, worth it. The quality of the fabric (which I did get rather touchy feely with) is top notch and as I mentioned the details that go into the designs really make them good investment pieces. To me, these pieces can be dresses up or down, and would work well in a corporate environment, especially if you want to add a bit of extra character to your clothing.

 This is just a selection of a few of MY favourites, but head over to the website for more pieces. They also have some amazing pieces in their sale section (Um, hello! Sequin pants! I oogled these on the day, the sequins aren’t scratchy and the back is a thick stretch ponte, DO WANT!)

Outfit – French Pink

Oh hai! It’s me! In an outfit post! It’s been awhile! Also, here be the backyard of #lilpieceofsuburbia, it’s huge! I need to find a good place to take OOTD photos, but in the mean time, I thought this will do. Today I ventured out to a showroom in Richmond (post to come), and had to work with what I had. I haven’t unpacked any of my clothes yet, my built in robe honestly only stores about 20 items, I’m in desperate need of clothing racks.

When I went to Big W the other day, this top I posted about previously here was on sale for $8. It’s for sale on the Big W website now, but sadly not for that sale price. It’s got my normal size 22 for a slightly oversized look because I decided I wanted to tie it at the bottom.

 Normally I’d wear this with different shoes, but well, Melbourne. I’m still getting used to the weather and when I left the house is was cold, dreary and raining. It cleared up during the day but boots were just the sensible option. Also, wahey, an actual outfit post where I am wearing my glasses!!

Vlog – The Parcel Box Opening!

theparcel-001

Wahey, look! It’s a VLOG! Now, this is my first real attempt at a vlog and to be honest, I felt so awkward! I’m hoping it’s something I get a bit more used to as I try and do more. It’s also hardly edited at all, I need to play around with editing software, but I don’t think it’s too bad for my first try! Anyway, this vlog is the un-boxing of The Parcel subscription service I mentioned in my Subscription Box post.

Revlon Colourstay Moisture Stain in Miami Fever & Benefit They’re Real Push Up Liner. The bottom line was the initial line after I pushed up the gel. The middle was the next try. It was super precise! I’ll try and do a make up look with both of these and update with a link here!
