At Sonar

I’m wearing: Guess eyelet corset top, Larsson & Jennings watch, Guess jeans, Guess cut-off shorts, H&M hat, Nick Campbell sunglasses, Guess striped crop top, Guess denim overalls and Loeffler Randall bag

You may have noticed on the ol’ Instagram that I spent this past weekend with Guess in Barcelona for Sonar Festival. We managed to pack in a pretty generous amount in a few days; an excessive amount of festival fun, eating plenty of delicious Catalan food, raiding the Guess store in the name of festival outfits and of course a cheeky trip (or two) to the beach.

It was my third time in Barcelona, and I gotta say, every time I visit I just love that city more and more. Sam and I always talk about moving there for a summer… Thankfully for now, it’s little more than a jump and a skip from London.

You can see more from the good times with Guess on my Instagram here.

Get Evangelie’s look: Valentino mini dress (similar budget options here and here) and Ann Demeulemeester boots (budget option available here)

Pairing tough pieces – be it black boots or a leather jacket – with a feminine dress is one of the easiest ways to strike a balanced look. And Evangelie is all kinds of cool in this incredible Valentino dress. The embellished cut-out collar and cuffs are straight up beautiful, and work perfectly with an otherwise simple mini dress.

Shop my wardrobe: Nobody denim boyfriend jeans, Francis Leon leather jacket, Acne gilet and Ostwald Helgason skirt

Like most girls, my wardrobe inevitably reaches a point every year where it’s time to have a serious detox. And truth be told, I like the cleansing feeling of reducing my possessions down to a more manageable size. Each time we move (from New Zealand to Sydney, and now London) my boyfriend and I are forced to fit our lives into a suitcase and I kind of like that…

I’ve worked with online consignment store Vestiaire Collective over the past year or so, shooting some of the style features for their journal, and I figured it was high time I used the service myself.

The process is pretty simple – you upload items using your own imagery and preferred price point which Vestiaire approves before anything goes live. When an item sells, Vestiaire sends you a courier slip to download, and the item is picked up and taken to Paris for quality control. Vestiaire does the rest! You can even simplify the process by downloading the app, which allows you to upload items using a simple form and select photos from your iPhone.

You can shop my wardrobe here, or alternatively, get selling here.

Get Valentina’s look: Blumarine embellished dress (alternative pink embellished dresses available here and here), Roger Vivier clutch (similar box clutch available here) and ASOS platform sandals

Valentina Siragusa of Factory Style looking awfully pretty in pink in this embellished Blumarine dress. It’s pretty much the perfect party dress. And I love that she’s paired it with ruffled socks and platform sandals – still girly but with a bit of playful edge.
