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

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
For us Northern Hemispherians (is that even a word?), Winter is coming. I've got my plan of attack all sorted: 'Stock up' and 'Dust off'. 'Stock up' on a new winter coat, warm pants, boots x 2 and winter accessories. 'Dust off' my existing Winter clothes and boots. So while I was in the 'Dust off' phase I came across something obscure. My Hunter boots, which weren't in use for a good 5 months, had this strange white film all over them. A little Google search later explained it as 'blooming', a proccess caused due to the natural state of the rubber. So for all you clueless Hunter girls out there - heres how to get your boots looking spick and span.
My reaction: what the heck is going on here!? This strange film can't be removed with simple soapy water and Google reccomended buying some kind of professional rubber restorer. Now you have to know, I'm an instant fix kind of girl. I could not be bothered waiting 2 weeks for some rubber cleaner to arrive. But there's an alternative!
You will need: olive oil & a rag cloth. Drizzle a little oil on your cloth and get cleanin'! Circular motions will do the trick. White stuff be gone!
WOWSERS! Compare the difference! Pay attention to the buckle and Hunter logo and make sure you don't miss any spots.
Voila! Check out your boots - they look brand new. And the total cost of this clean = 50c. Yay! More money to spend of Fall/Winter clothes. x Sharday

As they say, better late than never. Here's my recap of the major trends at PFW.
The strapless column shape is back. As seen at Alexander Wang for Balenciaga and Stella McCartney. It's a gorgeous, feminine shape but I'm not sure if I'm game enough to try it yet!
Sheer black voille, tulle and mesh were popping up everywhere! This is a trend I'm super keen to adopt. Such a sexy way to reveal a little flesh ;).
Whether it be cream, pale grey or white - light hues are going to be H-U-G-E next Winter! Buy an oversized cream coat PRONTO!
Top heavy, slim bottom silhouettes were a common occurence a la Celine, Balenciaga & Chloe. If you're trying this trend, go for a large oversized coat with slim jeans or bare legs.. BRRR! x Sharday
I'm loving Camilla and Marc's AW13 collection featuring sharp tailoring, signature lace detailing and eclectic prints. If you've been following me for a while you would know that every season I have to buy at least one Camilla & Marc dress. I wonder which one it will be this season?! x Sharday
Presenting my first blog shoot from Vancouver.. which should ultimately be renamed Raincouver. For the past week it has been raining (more so spitting) non-stop. But the show must go on.. and so it did. My poor boyfriend got saturated while taking these pics - luckily I was hiding under a little alcove! Let's just say Hunter Wellington boots are my best purchase to date! x Sharday p.s. the peace sign is now V for Vancouver!
