Estelle Deve is a name you NEED to know. Creator of luxe yet tough jewels. From chunky chains to gold cluster meteorites, Estelle Deve creates unique and covetable pieces that can be worn equally every day or savoured for years. I am so lucky to own one of her gold chunky cluster rings. It is a piece I would NEVER part with and continues to be worn years after purchase. Do yourself a favour and check her out. x Sharday
P.s. Holla Melbournians - there is an Estelle Deve #samplesale this Friday 6/12 at the Nicholas Building, 21 - 47 Swanston St, Melbourne CBD. So sad I can't attend :(

File this video under ‘women I want to be’ ;). Kinga Burza, fashion savvy film and music video director, is absolutely stunning as one of the faces of PANDORA’s new ESSENCE collection. The talented Kinga has shot videos for a plethora of acts including Calvin Harris, Katy Perry, Ladyhawke, La Roux and Peaches.
As I mentioned in my previous post, jewellery says so much about a woman. Not only who she wants to be today, but where she comes from and also where she’s going. I love that Kinga mentions in this video that her charms remind her of her mother (which is something I can totally relate to!). Living far away from her mother, wearing her jewellery is a bit like having her close. Cue happy tears.

You know those purchases that are totally unnecessary but are still completely justified. The "I'll return it if I change my mind when I get home". This coat is one of those. Not that it was expensive.. I just have a second wardobe full of 10+ coats. But this one.. it's THE one! Loving the furry plaid check print. Here's to 'those' purchases.. check mate. x Sharday

Things have started to get a little chilly in Vancouver. Which means it's time to bring out the sweaters, skivvy's, beanies and gloves. This is the sweater/jumper I'll be wearing all Winter long. Relaxed turtle neck, slouchy fit and long enough to keep your butt warm ;). It's just perfect!

I’m a firm believer that a woman’s choice in jewellery says so much about her. Whether it’s a statement cocktail ring or a minimalist bracelet – her choice reveals her lifestyle, her aesthetic, her history and also her mood. Truly.. it is the essence of her.
Personally, I’m drawn to simple yet strong pieces that will match whatever mood I’m feeling that day. Usually it’s my man style watch, delicate silver rings or this stunning PANDORA charm bracelet.
PANDORA has ingeniously created the ESSENCE collection that allows women to completely customise their aesthetic and express their mood through charms representing values such as joy, hope, love, balance, compassion and health. I selected honesty, loyalty and strength.. which tend to be characteristics I admire in women. Here’s to women expressing the essence of who they are ;) x Sharday
I'm not going to lie. I'm missing the Spring Racing Carnival this year and the hours of thought that go into preparing an appropriate outfit. Like my Stakes Day outfit last year, when I made some super cute lace cat ears to go with my stunning Camilla and Marc dress. If I was attending this year.. I would most definitely be wearing a piece from Camilla and Marc's 'Suprematist' Resort 13 collection. Check it out and prepare your wallets for the sting. x Sharday

I have something to confess. I'm a reformed nail biter. Yes that's right.. I used to bite my nails. Until I came across the wonderful world of Shellac (thanks Jessica!). Every 2-3 weeks I get my nails my done and they stay pristine and shiny until my next visit. Considering my pre-Shellac nails were chipped, broken and brittle.. it's pretty much a miracle (see below). So without any further ado I present THE NAIL COLOUR DIARY. This week's shade = baby pink!
I've been obsessed with baby pink ever since I laid eyes on those pastel hued coats! With that being said you gotta have guts to buy and wear one of those coats, so pink nails just seemed a less risky way to test the colour. I would love to hear what you think. Or any suggestions for my next colour diary post! x Sharday
A few weeks back my man & I took a trip across the border to meet up with my sis & her boyf in the Emerald City. Seattle is such a great city and it definitely met my foreign city criteria: shopping, art, food and coffee. Tick tick tick & tick. This is what followed..
Welcome to Fall - my favourite season of the year. When the leaves turn into fiery shades of of red, auburn and yellow. When you can start wearing cozy sweaters, booties and coats - all in one outfit. When it's all about the Pumpkin Pie (or PSL). Ahhh Fall! I'm in love!
I have a serious obsession with pastel coloured candy coats. Whether it be baby pink or a soft blue, novelty pastel-hued coats are a super fun alternative to the boring black coat. Unsure of the trend? Topshop has a minimal investment option for under $100 - what have you got to lose? x Sharday
Happy Thanksgiving to my North American friends. I have so many things to be thankful for. An amazing partner, a supportive family, incredible experiences spent abroad with new friends and also this mighty fine leopard coat ;). It's all about being thankful x Sharday
Once. Twice. Three times a trend. I've seen these Acne booties on a few fashion forward ladies at work and this may be a little premature but it should be announced as the 'BOOT OF THE SEASON' :O! There's something about the quirky shape, englarged zippers and managable heel height. It's like Prince and Acne had a baby and her name is Marlie. x Sharday
