Valentine's Day Look :: Red Blouse & Floral Skirt

Pin It
ValentinesOutfitIdeas_SydneysFashionDiary

Wrapping up the week with another Valentine's inspired look. The crop top and high waisted skirt is one of my favorite combos to wear. This look is a bit dressier than the last one but still not over the top. I feel like it's a girly chill outfit for dinner with your date but it's also office-appropriate. I love the self tie bow in the back. It adds a twist to the traditional blouse. I am giving away this gorgeous pink lace dress for Valentine's Day. If you're interested, please head over to this post and tag a friend to enter. The vibrant color of this blouse is also perfect for Lunar New Year. If you celebrate this weekend, I wish you good health and lasting prosperity. A special thanks to Chicwish for sponsoring this week's content.

What's in my Chanel wallet on chain (WOC)?

ChanelCaviarWOC_SydneysFashionDiary

I talk about my Chanel wallet on chain (WOC) to death on this blog. It's hands down one of my favorite items in the closet. Even though it's small, it has proven to be super versatile. For this week's handbag chit chat, I am going to show you what fits inside a Chanel WOC. The wallet has slots for credit cards (which I do not use) plus one zippered compartment (which I don't use either). I only use the main compartment to store my stuff. My iPhone 6 plus fits comfortably in there. I use my Kate Spade card holder to store a couple of credit cards and my ID. It's very compact and doesn't take up much space. I found this random clear pouch from my daughter's bathroom and use it for my key, chap stick and my everyday lipstick. Eventually, I want to get a small leather pouch to replace this but it works for now. There is more room inside for travel wipes if needed.

WhatsInMyChanelWOC_SydneysFashionDiary

Everything pictured above fits comfortably inside the wallet without being bulky. When I use it as a clutch, I would be able to fit everything mentioned above plus room to store the strap. If you're still on the fence about this wallet, I can't recommend this enough (a huge collection of pre-owned Chanel wallet on chain available here)

Cozy knit sweater :: White denim

Pin It
ExpressWhiteJeans_SydneysFashionDiary

A pair of jeans (or leggings) and a cozy knit sweater is always a winter go-to for me. I love how chunky and warm this sweater is. Since the look is neutral and understated, I added my statement coat to make the outfit more interesting. This is my first time ordering from Make Me Chic so I wanted to share my initial thoughts. Their shipping is fast compared to some other Asia-based retailers. I got the package within a week. The quality of this particular sweater is pretty decent. The material is thick, it feels very warm and no itchy. I did have a tank top underneath."One size fits all" accommodates a wide range of sizes. One thing I wanted to mention is that the sweater smells like "grease" from the treatment. Luckily, the smell went away after a couple of days. All in all, it's a great essential piece of winter wear. Outfit details: Make me chic sweater c/o | Express denim | Colehaan boots | LOFT coat | Michael Kors runway watch

Favorites of the year :: 2015

Pin It
FavoritesOf2015_SydneysFashionDiary

I saw the "Favorites of the year" tag floating around YT and thought it'd be fun to do one. I did modify some of the questions to make it more "fashion-appropriate". Please feel free to share your favorites of the year in the comment section below:

FavoritesOfTheYear_SydneysFashionDiary

1. Favorite song - Set fire to the rain by Adele
2. Favorite drink - Peppermint mocha with 3 pumps of each from Starbucks - I drink this year-round
3. Favorite trip - Our trip to Europe earlier last year. Really do wish we could stay longer.
4. Favorite new product - Becca skin perfector in champagne pop. This year, I want to experiment with new (to me) make up products. This is the first highlighter I've ever purchased and am in love. It gives the most beautiful glow without looking clownish!
5. Favorite lipstick - Anastasia Beverly Hills in Pure Hollywood - my everyday lipstick (swatch here)
6. Favorite fragrance - Elizabeth & James Nirvana White - I bought the rollerball so I could test it out and ended up loving it. The scent is captivating, fresh and clean. I will purchase a full size bottle when my rollerball runs out.
7. Favorite bag - Chanel wallet on chain - This was one of my best purchases thus far
8. Favorite piece of clothing - Ann Taylor white shirt dress: I wore it countless times during the summer/fall.
9. Favorite accessory - Quay sunglasses: You know I wear these sunglasses to death.
10. Favorite memory - My husband came home 3 hours earlier than expected from a business trip to surprise me and the girls. It might not seem like a big deal to some but for someone who's away from home a lot, this was definitely one of my favorite memories from last year.

2-in-1 Sweatshirt :: Leather Leggings

Pin It
ExpressFauxLeatherLeggings_SydneysFashionDiary

How adorable is this sweatshirt? The chiffon ruffles on the bottom add an element of feminine to an otherwise plain sweatshirt. The fit is boxy but looks great with a pair of leggings. The material is very lightweight and comfortable to wear. My favorite part is the back! It's a little sheer but not see though. You don't need to wear a cami underneath. This versatile (and affordable) piece that can be easily dressed up or down. Outfit details: Express leggings | Shein sweatshirt c/o *size S* | Chanel bag | Banana Republic pumps | Quay sunglasses | H&M coat (similar)

Review: Longchamp Le Pliage Expandable Travel Tote

For this week's handbag chit chat, I have a quick review for you. I meant to get this post up before the holidays but couldn't find time to do so. I purchased this tote several months ago and have been enjoying it. Outfit details: J.Brand leggings | Longchamp tote | Quay sunglasses | Shein coat | J.Crew gloves *tech-friendly* | GAP linen tee | Nine West boots

LongchampLePliageExpandableTote_SydneysFashionDiary

My very first Longchamp purchase was this tote. After using it for almost 3 years as a diaper bag, I decided to find a new home for it and used the money towards this new purchase. I was looking for something that is durable and can be used as a weekend bag. This tote exceeds all my expectations. Staying true to the brand values, the bag is extremely sturdy, well constructed and will last a good long time. What I love about this bag is the expandable option. It can be folded neatly and laid flat to fit into your luggage when travel. It makes the perfect gym bag when it isn't expanded. The expandable option is perfect for longer trips or when you need some extra space. It is like having a 2-in-1 bag.

Outfit Ideas :: One Dress Three Ways

Pin It
OneDressThreeWays_SydneysFashionDiary

This year, I want to focus on restyling some of my older pieces. Take this dress as an example, I have not worn it for almost a year. It's a beautiful dress made out of thick knit fabric that is very winter-appropriate

OneDressThreeWays_SydneysFashionDiary

Outfit idea # 1: For a simple date night look, I opted for sheer tights and a pair of red heels. I don't wear full on red lipstick often but it's usually my lip color of choice for a night out. The faux fur coat helped pull the look together. Outfit details: Shein dress | Similar red pumps | Forever 21 faux fur coat | ZeroUV sunglasses
