THIS VEST! Sorry, I am a little excited that this pretty piece is now part of my wardrobe! I remember eyeing this piece on the US store before MYNT1792 opened their Aussie site. Then when I got to see the collection in person, I fell in love! What’s even better, is that MYNT currently have 30% off site wide until December 2nd, with the coupon code ‘MID14‘.
I’m still trying to find the best places to take blog photos, and sadly, none of these photos really show off just how awesome this vest is! A shiny gold faux leather, it really is a show stopper. I decided to ‘dress it down’ a little in this outfit. Show how it can be worn casually.
Even the inside of the vest is pretty! With Melbourne weather being so CRAY CRAY, i’ve been learning to layer. I’ve been finding long sleeves top pretty essential because it keeps me warm at the start of the day, and then protects me in the afternoon from the sun! I don’t know if I will ever get used to this weather!
This skirt is super old, sorry! I’ve had it for over 5 years now, and it’s still one of my favourite summer pieces. As you know, I’m not really a huge fan of denim, but the cute ra-ra ruffles on this skirt just gives it a little twist that I love!

Are you a fan of gold or silver?
I was considering not sharing these photos, I didn’t set the camera up properly and so the images turned out a little weird. Luckily it’s not really noticeable in these couple. I’m loving that we’ve been getting some cooler days, I do adore Autumn & can’t wait for it to cool down even more!
This jumper and skirt are both items i’ve picked up on sale. I’d been eyeing the skirt (in all 3 colourways) since they went up, but I know I don’t really suit the style. When the recent 20% off sale promo came up, I used it to pick up the bronze for $16! This is the size 22 and it’s a bit big, I probably could have sized down to the 20. As it is though, it’s really comfy.

Sequins! Sequins! Sequins! Oh, how I adore them! I have a LOT of sequins in my wardrobe, a hell of a lot actually, for someone who doesn’t go out anywhere fancy very often. I’m just attracted to anything sparkly and glittery, I’m sure I was a magpie in a previous life. Figuring out something to wear for this weeks Aussie Curves challenge was actually hard, I didn’t want to wear any of the same things from the last sequins challenge, and I wanted to do something more then just a dress.
That’s when I remembered that this dress arrived the other day. After spying it on sale at ASOS, I snapped it up. I’d never ordered from the ‘Club L’ range before, and ordered my normal size 22. Uh, it’s supposed to be a shift dress, as you can see, its rather tight, it also doesn’t cover my butt, AT ALL. I wouldn’t even call it a tunic! But the colour is so beautiful, I’m tempted to re-order it in a few sizes bigger.
It works well as a top though, or so I think. I decided to pair it with my pleather mini skater skirt, I’ve been loving mixing textures. The boots are a Kmart find, and recently went on sale for $9! YES, $9!
