Mother Of Hades Unholy Rosary Cast Necklace

As I'm freezing my toosh off in Melbourne my sweater collection has grown and I'm very excited to share the latest arrival with you. If you don't know already I'm a little obsessed with Blackmilks Knits and how cozy and flattering they are to my shape. They are my go-to daily and I pretty much live in these all winter, layering with tees, leggings or jeans.

Moonstones

I'm back with another Sugar Stitch clothing review! A few weeks ago I received an unexpected parcel from the amazing Sugar Stitch designer and I instantly started planning for his shoot. I'm usually a control freak and love to know exactly what is coming for a photoshoot review so I can make lists, style etc but this was super fun as I had no idea and just ran with my first vibes!
 


This year I seem to be really into higher necklines and statement sleeves. They add a little more drama to each and every look and right now I'm OBSESSED with the Pheobe Top! It's stretchy and soft, form-fitting in all the right areas and really is a classic. 

 

Featuring a Leg-o-Mutton sleeve and the most amazing V-shaped back cut-out and snap closure as seen below. I love this little bit of back showing from the rear of the top and I'm almost tempted to wear this back to front - two tops of the price of one!

Cirsi and Dracona

 Are you ready for some Thistle and Spire magic? This past week I received what will now be the most amazing pieces that currently exist in my wardrobe! I swear I state this with every review but I'm literally OBSESSED with these two new additions and I can't wait to share each and every feature with you!



Last year I fell pretty hard for the black and Butterscotch version of the Dracona and you can find my full review here. This amazing, curve-friendly and supportive bodysuit is silky and lightweight. The power I feel within myself when I slip into T&S pieces is like nothing else! It's magic and ego boosting!




I'm wearing the Dracona in the 2XL which is my go-to for all bodysuits and bra's in their range. I find they give me the right fit and coverage for my HH/GG cup chest. This bodysuit has a halter cross over the neckline and this makes for amazing shape and lift.



When I shot the original black version of this piece I felt fierce AF in my vixen moto and I wanted to bring that vibe back again! Luckily I have the most perfectly matching cobalt blue jacket already, and they look stunning together.




I adore this new shade and welcome it into my lingerie collection. I also can't wait to see what other colour ways are in store for the Dracona in future years!



A few weeks ago I introduced you to a small corset-style top and raved about the fit and shape! Now, I'm lucky enough to be able to review the first full corset from T&S - the Cirsi Corset.


Think comfort, this movement, think sheer perfection, and bold panels of solid silk and intricate embroidery and you have the Cirsi Corset. 


This corset might just be one of the most comfortable pieces I've ever worn with bonning. It's stretchy yet firmly holds you in. It hugs your curves with a little extra shaping and looks divine. I wear corsets very often and I find any mesh or sheer panel styles are so much more comfortable and work with the natural curves of your body. 



As you can see this corset also holds my busy up perfectly, all while creating a really round shape through the sheer fabric! It's sexy and classic at the same time. The construction and detailing in this piece really blew my mind and I'm so excited to own it!


I'm wearing this corset and matching bottoms in a 2XL/3X and I think I might be better 1 size down as I can fully close up the black laces of the corset and the underwear is very loose. I think the XL/1XL would be perfection and may even offer a little more shaping at the waist.

For a corset, I'd usually go down 1 size but as this is new for me with T&S I was not 100% sure of which fit would be best. If other full styles like this come out in the future I'll most definitely size down. 



Just look at that floral embroidery! Isn't it just stunning! So soft, delicate and perfectly placed. I swear magicians work within their walls! 


Which of these pieces is your stand-out favourite? Are you a bodysuit or corset fan?

Retro vibes

I've been hunting high and low for the perfect pair of flared jeans. For years I've been 100% into high-waisted skinny styles but for winter I'm really keen to pair crops, chunky knits and more with some 70s style flares. Luckily, City Chic has come to the rescue with Leah Flares.




The Leah jeans are a retro style high-waisted flare with modern stretch. Figure flattering, super comfy and so easy to style. Now for size, I was looking at the online reviews and noticed that people had fit issues with these as they seem to fit 2 sizes smaller. This is really correct, unfortunately. While I usually wear a 16 or 18 in City Chic pieces, I got a 20 in these. While usually a tag is just a tag it's more trusting as these were ordered online. We don't get fit and feel online and go by the size chart and the reviews.

The best in swim

 My all-time favourite swimsuit just got a million times better! I've been wearing my Curvy Kate plunge one piece for all swimming occasions and as the best of plunge bra's all year round. But now there is an all black twist style from CK and it's even more amazing that I ever thought possible! 



Fully comfy in fit with the most amazing support! This piece has now taken over from my last Curvy Kate once piece as my previous one was a reverse piece so every now and then the patterned side would pop through. But with the Twist and Shout I have no fears! 


Now for size, I'm wearing the 38H/HH and it's PERFECT! I do need a little more adjusting for a perfect lift but the fit is so comfy, and cute and has everything I need.




My cover-up is a stunning sheer Blackmilk longline shirt and I love how easy this is to layer! I can't wait to wear this throughout the year as a swimsuit and a bodysuit! 



Honestly, I can't get enough of this swimsuit and I'm OBSESSED! It really is the best in swimwear!

A Cultivated Life

To celebrate the release of the latest Black Milk Collection - A Cultivated Life, I've got the most divine of pieces to share with you! 



I think it's fair to say that the Blackmilk Bishop dresses are one of my all-time favourite styles. The fit, the flowing sleeve, that square bustline and hidden pockets all have me swooning. So when I saw that this collection had a very beautiful fairies print I instantly envisioned the most autumn-themed shoot possible. 


The print of the Midsummer Night Fairies is nothing short of magical and I can't get enough of this deep teal shade that instantly pairs perfectly with my colouring.

Batgirl

Time for a little feature of my favourite style Demona from the best in the business - Otherworld Shoes! I adore this Aussie-based brand and its huge collection of Demonia, Pleaser and curve thigh friendly boots! 

BAT GIRL PLATFORM MARY JANES BLACK CAMEL-55

For years I've been absolutely obsessed with the Camel style from Demonia and have nearly every boot they have created. The bold chunky bases really gives off 70s vibes while the height and fit are mind-blowing.
