The perfect summer mules

{PicturedWHBM leather mules - size 7}

I was on the hunt for a pair of nude mules since last year and can finally check them off my list. These mules are everything! I seriously love them. They run true to size and are super comfy to wear (I took my usual size 7). The color goes with practically everything especially when pair with white jeans. I love that they have the comfy elastic on the side to prevent rubbing. The leather is very soft and requires no breaking in period. If you're looking for an effortless pair of mules for spring/summer, I highly recommend you check these out!

Review :: The purse light by Wasserstein

Pin It
MichaelKorsGreenwichBucketBag_SydneysFashionDiary

For this week's handbag chit chat, I wanted to do a quick review on this nifty little gadget for your handbag - the purse light by Wasserstein. It's a light that you can hang or clip in your purse. I can't even tell you how many times I searched through my purse to find what I was looking for. Things always end up at the bottom of my bag (especially when I carry my beloved bucket bag which does not have great organization). When Wasserstein reached out to me to introduce their purse light, I felt intrigued! The light contains intelligent sensors that turn the light on once they detect motion of an approaching hand. The light itself is super lightweight and does not take up a lot of space. There is no set up needed. All you have to do is take it out of the box and it's ready to use. The set of batteries included in the purse light allows up to 3000 uses. The motion sensors work wonderfully. They light up as soon as my hand reaches inside and go off after 10 seconds when no motion is detected. The purse light is especially useful when you travel at night but don't necessarily want to turn the interior lights on. Overall, the light is a clever idea that will come in handy. Not to mention it's super fun to use =)

Off the shoulder white dress

Pin It
OffTheShoulderDress_SydneysFashionDiary

As the temperature starts to rise up, I find myself wanting to bust out summer dresses. This white off-the-shoulder dress is the perfect dress for summer weekends. The off-the-shoulder vibe is huge again this Spring and Summer. This is my very first off the shoulder piece and I am hooked. The dress itself is 100% lined and very well made. The common issue with white dresses is that they are often see through. Fortunately, this one isn't. The lace detailing looks very feminine and romantic. A 100% cotton dress like this one is so breathable and best for hot summer days. I paired the dress with my favorite pair of sandals (seriously obsessed with them). They are currently 25% off with code "FRIEND". Outfit details: c/o Chicwish dress *size S/M* | Marc Fisher sandals | Quay sunglasses

High-waisted Jeans :: Leather Jacket

Pin It
PetiteHighWaistedJeans_SydneysFashionDiary

Wearing a couple of new pieces today. First up is this leather jacket (use code SydneysFashionDiary for 10% off). I have always loved the idea of having a black leather jacket that I could throw on with anything but haven't found one that really has caught my eye. This jacket has almost everything I was looking for. I am wearing a size S and it is fitted but not too tight (allows enough room for a thin layer underneath). The silver hardware was right up my alley. One thing I wanted to point out is that the sleeves are slim which I really like. When I roll them up, they stay up all day. I wish the overall length was a couple inches shorter but I am only 5'2" so that is kind of expected. I won't get much use out of this jacket anymore but am looking forward to bring it out again when Fall arrives. Outfit details: ASOS jeans *26x30* | c/o KJ Couture jacket | Target tee | Banana Republic pumps | ZeroUV sunglasses

Next up is my new high waisted jeans. This is my very first pair of high waisted bottom and I am in love. They give the illusion of longer legs and make me appear taller. They also create curves where they never existed before. This particular pair from ASOS is amazing. The fit is perfect in every way (the waist, the length and the placement of the rip).

Keyhole Rompers:: Stuart Weitzman Gladiator Sandals Dupe

Pin It
PetiteFriendlyRompers_SydneysFashionDiary

The weather has been amazing these past few days. I took the opportunity to wear my new rompers for the first time. I love rompers/jumpsuits in general. They don't require a lot of work and can be easily dressed up or dressed down. Since my style is pretty casual for the most part, I toned down the look with my new gladiator sandals. To say I am in love with my new sandals is a serious understatement. I am obsessed with them! I was eyeing the Stuart Weitzman version for the longest time but couldn't bring myself to spend that much on a pair of sandals (especially for something that is so trendy). I literary squealed with delight when I saw this affordable option online. They're pretty much identical to the Stuart Weitzman. One thing to note is that the upper material is fabric (which I kinda prefer). They are very comfortable to wear without rubbing. They fit me perfectly in every way. I took my usual size 7 and couldn't be happier. If you're looking for a pair of tall gladiator sandals to rock this summer, I highly recommend them. They are very well made and reasonably priced.

The best part about this promotion is some of the luxury brands such as Saint Laurent, Stuart Weitzman, Monolo Blahnik and Salvatore Ferragamo are included. My picks are this YSl clutch (on my wishlist), these popular Stuart Weitzman gladiator sandals, the "it" Chloe Drew bag, the YSL wallet on chain (gorgeous!), these classic Manolo Blahnik pumps and this cute Miss Vara crossbody

Target's Vanilla Beach Swimsuit Review

Pin It
Today I have a quick swimsuit review for you even though it's snowing outside my windows right now =) I ordered a few swimsuits in preparing for our upcoming summer vacation. Target always has great swimwear options so I thought I would start there. Everything pictured below is from Target's Vanilla Beach brand

AffordableSwimwear_SydneysFashionDiary

First up is this bikini top and matching bottom set (on sale for under $20 each). I ordered a size XS for both top and bottom and couldn't get the bottom past my thighs. They run incredibly small. I love the print, the cut and the rear coverage. However, the top is not flattering on me because I have a very small bust - Returned

Up next is this floral one-piece swimsuit: The print is gorgeous! I love the fit and wouldn't have minded the bottom being a little less coverage. However, it has absolutely no support or padding. I am still undecided about this suit.

The last item in my order is this striped strappy high waist bikini bottom: I ordered this one in a size S and the fit was so much better. I am keeping this and on the lookout for a plain white bikini top to go with it.

All in all, Vanilla Beach has some really cute and affordable pieces. I just wish there were more options for small-chested ladies.
