For the Love of Loafers

a

DSC_0250

I have never been a huge fan of any type of flat shoes unless they were thongs. Finding an ‘in-between’ shoe that I really liked wasn’t an easy task, that was until I found loafers. There’s not a lot I don’t love about them; their shape, texture, comfort and pretty much everything about them is right down my alley. I’m obsessed with a pair that I recently purchased from Portmans in Melbourne’s iconic Bourke St. I’m loving the mixture of their hairy (yep they’re hairy) and stud design. They’re perfect, exactly what I was looking for. Something stylish enough to add  some ‘value’ to my outfit but also low-key enough to not overpower my overall style. Loafers are my new favourite staple in my wardrobe.

I’m Loving:

  1. Plain back loafers from Miss Shop
  2. The studs on these Lipstik pair
  3. Gorgeous suede from The Mode Collection
  4. The colour from Pied a Terre
  5. Patterns from Walnut Melbourne
  6. Stylish quilted finish by Nina Armando

Bedazzled Keys

I’ve always had a thing for large attention grabbing key rings to add a bit of beauty to your keys. Having stylish keys has always been a bit of a must for me and I always try to have something gorgeous on the ring to add that bit of glamour. So when I came across a way to bedazzle my keys I had to give it a go. The verdict: It was fun, easy and really gave the keys a gorgeous touch.  Everything needs a bit of glitter if you ask me.

To do it yourself you will need – the key(s) you want to bedazzle and the nail polish, glitter and top coat colour of your choice.

How to

  1. clean off the key with warm water;
  2. choose where you want to paint (usually the top bubbly end) and put a piece of tape across (to get a nice straight line) I skipped this step, but if you would like a straight edge I recommend you tape it;
  3. choose your colour and paint one coat on one side of the key. Wait for it to dry (best to wait about an hour between each coat);
  4. repeat step three until you get the desired colour;
  5. leave to set (at least an hour);
  6. apply glitter polish to the area. repeat as needed. Leave to set for about 2 hours;
  7. apply the top coat and allow to dry overnight;
  8. repeat steps 2 to 7; and
  9. remove tape.

Running in Heels

Wedge runners are hot right now. They have the perfect mixture of style – casual, yet the wedge gives them a feminine feel that women all over the world crave. They look super cute with jeans and are an ideal way to spruce up any outfit. On some lazy Sunday afternoons, I want to browse the markets or the boutiques, but often don’t want to get dressed up.  These shoes work wonders when matched with simple jeans and a tee as they give the outfit the right dose of style. They come in many shapes, colours, styles and prices. Check it out here.
