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.
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.

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.
I good pair of trousers can’t be beat. And this pair by Reiss is perfectly tailored, a little slouchy and oh so fresh and white. Just made for warm London days, wandering around my ‘hood, drinking too many iced lattes and enjoying the sporadic sunshine.
