Ertwilder Essentials

There is something new and super cute at Erstwilder! My favourite local accessories creators have  released 75 different styles of adorable studs in a variety of shapes, resins and colours.


 
 
There is nothing more easy and simple to style that a cute little pair of stud earrings. I wear them daily and love adding more bright pops of colour or glitter to my collection.
 
 



 
With hearts and diamonds, triangles and perfectly sweet round circles these stunning little pieces are the perfect little cherry on top of any look.


 

Here are a few of my absolute favourites from the newly released range which are adorable, affordable and come in every possible colour you can think of.

 

What I love most about these earrings are the resins. I've picked my all time favourite colours and a few bold pieces such a black or sparkling silver.
 
 
 

 
 I really love that Erstwilder is extending their range to include such easy to wear pieces that pair perfectly with all of their necklaces, brooches and drop earrings. If you have two piercings, you can even pair these with any of the other EW earrings for a fully funky look.

Tree of Life

Every summer my love for bohemian styles pops back up and I live in flowing fabrics, maxi dresses and other boho styles. But this year I've been thinking about taking those styles that I adore in the warmer months and working them into my winter wardrobe. Pairing rich prints and flowing fabrics with super warm layers of stockings, boots and coats.
 
Tree of Life have always been a personal favourite of mine and this season they have rocked my socks of with a stunning collection of leopard print pieces. Oh how I love a bold leopard print!
 
Now my take on boho is always going to reflect my love for showing off my shape, so I've chosen to style each piece with my beloved western belt. It gives these very free flowing fabrics a little more shape and makes each piece more me.

 
 
Kenya Shirt - $55.00
 
The Kenya shirt is one of those pieces that is effortless to style. You can wear it tucked, untucked, tied at the front, paired with high waisted skater skirts or worn out over your favourite pair of skinny jeans.

 
  

 
The fabric is so soft and weightless and the relaxed fit means this style will fit anywhere from a size 12 to 18. A perfect style for both casual wear or work wear and the sleeves roomy enough for any size upper arm. Most garments at Tree of Life come in two sizes a one size fits all standard and a queen. I'm wearing the queen or plus size styles.

 

 
I've styled this as I'd wear these pieces to the office. Tucked into my favourite plain black skater skirt and waist belt. The comfort level in each garment is amazing, and I'm going to be styling and wearing these all week.
 
 
Jangla Dress - $75.00
 
Now let's chat about the Jangla. This was a style that on the product shots I knew I liked it but the shift style of the dress made me worry about fit on my already curvy shape. So in true Teer form I've added the waist belt for epic definition.
 

Featuring a tie up neck detail, ruffled hemline and flared sleeves, this piece is both cute and chic. I've always loved a flared sleeve, and these do not disappoint! 

 

I'll be wearing this with my favourite thigh high black boots, black tights, wide brim hats and a variety of belts. This might just be my favourite piece out of this selection as it's just so easy to style and throw on when you want to look fab with very little effort.
 

 
 
Tree of life offers a full plus size section so if you are not a mad leopard fan like me you a get very similar styles in different colours and prints. 
 

Jungle Queen Dress - $95.00
 
Lastly, the maxi of me dreams! Featuring a scooping v-neckline, button details, a drawstring waist and tiered maxi skirt with a split. This amazing piece really is giving me those Stevie Nicks vibes and I'm smitten with all those little details.
 
 

The length is perfect as it hits just at my ankles and the split shows only when you want it to. The buttons are fully functioning, and you can wear them as you wish. I'm very busty, so my bras always tend to pop out of most lower necklines but I actually love the sneaky bit of black showing through.
 
 
The drawstring waist creates really great shape, so you can choose to wear it as I've done here with a western belt and or just with the drawstring. That feature also offers a custom fit as you can wear it as tight or loosely as you want.

The sleeves are also a stand out feature for me as they are the perfect length and flow beautifully. I'm so impressed with these plus size styles and I can't wait to get my hands on even more pieces in the future.

Now if only the Afghan coats came in my size I could finally act out my Penny Lane from Almost Famous photoshoot dreams!

Bonsai Kitten Is Tops!


Bonsai Kitten have answered my spooky prayers with their latest release - The Horror Vixen blouse! A kooky, freak friendly, adorable pussy blow short sleeved top that's a must have for any horror fanatic.



The Bonsai Kitten pussy boy tops are a staple in my wardrobe all year round as they have that vintage flare and great fit. To Horror Vixen features a dark and whimsical horror, inspired print, which showcases all the iconic Horror Film Vixens.


This amazing print pairs two of my favourite things - horror an cameos! So of course I needed every colour way. Each top is form fitting, short sleeved and features that classic Bonsai Kitten neck tie that I've been smitten with for years. Made from a  soft, super stretchy, cotton/viscose lycra combo this print and style will wash well and always keeps tis shape while molding to yours. The extra volume on the sleeve is adorable and gives you a little bit more wiggle room in the upper arm area.


The white on black print really pops and the fit is rather firm in this fabric but once you wear this once it becomes a perfect fit.  I've opted to wear the pussy bow a little looser and to one side and I'm loving how cute I looks.

Both tops have been paired with my Vixen Vegan Leather Circle Skirt and I just adore this whole outfit.



Now we can't have a creepy print without a monster green version! The same great print, style and fit but this fabric has a lot more stretch to it. I'm wearing both in a 16 and the fit is perfect and each top is long enough to wear tucked in or out of skirts or jeans. 


Such a sweet shape that can be dressed up or down with absolute ease. Pair it with a swing skirt and heels for the evening or untuck this, pair with your favourite jeans and flats of a cute casual outfit.


I just can't get enough of these two pieces and this phenomenal print. I must run and order a long sleeved version for those chilly winter days and maybe a skirt or two while I'm there.

Elsa Elsa

If there is one item from Heart of Haute I could live in all year round it has to be the Elsa Blouse. A stunning long sleeved button up made hug every curve in the best possible way. 


Now let's be honest I completely adore each and every blouse created by the dream team at Heart of Haute but there is something oh so magical about the Elsa and each and every season I try to add more prints and colours to my collection. This winter I'm adding some rich jewel tones in this iconic and super flattering style which will pair perfectly with my token Melbourne uniform of black! 


While I have many printed Elsa blouses I've taken this long to get my mitts on some solid stunning colourways. My first choice for a solid full colour version of this perfectly fitting top had to be Sapphire. This stunning blue shade is amazing when paired with red hair and I just adore how well it works with my skin tone. 



I'm a huge fan of blue but sometimes it can be hard to get the right shade. Navy I find too boring, baby a little to cute for my liking. But this gem shade is amazing.


I'm wearing both blouses in 2XL and the fit perfectly and super comfortable. With room to move, eat and wear all day long. I can be a 1XL or a 2XL in this style but due to the firmness of this fabric I got both in the XXL. 



Why am I always 100% blown away when I wear purple? It's clearly my colour, but I never remember that simple fact! The Amethyst shade of this Elsa is rather magical and upon closer inspection you can find a mixture of blue and red threads to create this multi-dimensional fabric. 


This stunning colour loves the light and changes accordingly. I just can't get enough of this truly magical fabric and hope Heart of Haute create more tops or skirts with it.


I find that these in the 2XL button up without any stress and really accommodate my HH chest. The darts and tailored waist also offers a stunning shape.




To complete the look I paired both with my all time favourite swing skirt the Go Getter in black. This simply stunning piece really works with everything in my wardrobe and the soft flowing fabric is a great base for each of these blouses.

Now what's next on my Elsa Blouse Lust List? Leopard, Floral? The sky is the limit!!!

Luna

This month I have amazing Unique Vintage dresses to share with you! Two very different looks but two perfectly designed and tailored pieces.

 


For the last few years, I've been in LOVE with the Luna Dress and Caplet set but I was never really sure if it would work on my shape. Last Halloween I was in LUST with all the black spiderweb version of this set but sadly I missed out. So when the red and white polka dot version popped up in a Disney themed collection I made sure I snapped it up.


Once it arrived, I popped it on without any shapewear or even a bra and the fit was pure magic. I'm wearing the 1XL, and it fits like a dream. Accommodating my HH cup chest while still hugging my waist and skimming over my hips. The fabric is a cotton spandex mixture and has a little stretch to it so you'll be able to fit your waist and bust perfectly if you are curvy like me.



For this shoot I'm wearing my corset as per usually but I'm also not wearing a bra! The lift and support is great, but I did need to adjust the straps on order to get the best possible fit. This style also works perfectly with any strapless bra as the straps are too thin to hide a standard bra.



While the dress is 100% on it's own paired with the matching mesh capelet the look is absolutely amazing. The sheer fabric covers you while still adding an element of sexiness and the matching peter pan collar in polka dot ties the outfit together perfectly.

Accessories wise I went for my Disney Mickey years from my last LA trip and stuck with my yellow Miz Smitten Kitten Doris Domes as I thought combined it really does give off a Mickey colour pallet.
 


Next a style I've loved from afar but not been game enough to try until now! The Hostess Dress is made from marvelous cotton stretch fabric in an elegant surplice halter neckline that self ties for a perfect pin-up fit. With a banded waist and matching belt (Which I forgot!) to nip and cinch your hourglass. Being a halter neck style, I was able to wear this like the last without a bra but the sheer weight of my chest did cause a little too much stress on the halter at my neck. In the future some creative work with Booby Tape will be the way to solve this problem.
The pleated swing skirt features a button up front to show off your favorite pair of shorts or capris to match that famous hostess style - I never noticed that this was why the button up features exist on this dress until I researched hostess styles! I love that with the skirt unbuttoned you can show off bright pops of colour in your shorts or pants.

Speaking of bright pops of colour! I've paired this with a Rose Pink YeMAK cardigan and I love how the navy and white print work with this shade of pink. Our location also worked perfectly and I think I'll be styling this with more pinks and yellows in the future.
 
 
To top off this super summer friendly look I've completely the outfit with the amazing
Unique Vintage Retro Woven Light Blue Ribbon Wide Brim Sun Hat  which retails for $64.00. I'm a sucker for super wide brimmed hats and this stunning piece is giant. The soft baby blue ribbon also adds that extra pop of colour an is also available in pink. It's a piece everyone needs for summer and as a pale skinned girl that burns like a crisp I'll be wearing this constantly.
