Fashionable Friday: Pink Peonies {Fashion}

The Hubs and I are heading to Japan for Christmas and the weather is going to be on average 10 degrees.

I am feeling rather inspired by Rachel Parcell from Pink Peonies and her Gorgeous winter looks!.

Sit back and enjoy the inspired gorgeousness that is a wingback chair at the dining table.

Peak over the fence: My little sisters Apartment {inspired}

My little sister has recently moved to Paddington in Sydney, it is fantastic to have her close by and it is such a great neighbourhood. I remember it was a big change moving to the city from our parentals, both my husband and I have only ever made that one move (8 years ago). A very quick look at her little abode:    




Don’t you think she has great decorating style! I custom made the "When life gives you lemons" print for her a while ago as a random surprise, she has paired it with a lovely little scull tequila bottle (how fitting) and some black and white canisters.

PS: It's her birthday today! Happy birthday sis XX

Cloud Art ~ Via: Amber Interiors {DIY}

I absolutely adore Amber Interior Design Cloud photograph DIY for her dining room, what a fantastic way to add colour to complement a room.









Here is how she did it:

I took some cool photos of white puffy clouds and had them blown up 28" x 40" on glossy poster paper. It was 30 bucks to blow up and then I framed them in Ribba's from Ikea. I photo shopped the images a bit to make them have that Lomo camera poloroid vibe and Wallah! Big original art for under 60 bucks! Woop Woop!




The inspiration

And here is and Etsy Version for $25 
Etsy sellers will commonly to custom orders if you want to order a  larger scale. Sun Clouds Photography Blue Sky Home Decor BOGO 10x8 Print Looking Up...

My “Wardrobe Phone” {Shopping}

You would all have such a laugh if you went through the photographs on my phone. It has come to my attention that I have developed Cher’s  wardrobe computer from my favourite 90’s movie “Clueless” on my phone, I refer to my camera phone when purchasing clothes and for outfit selection.

Purchasing clothes, resisting impulse purchases
I regularly take a photos in the change room of clothes I like, I then review the potential purchase at home. If I feel like heading back to the store to make the purchase it’s not an impulse purchase.

Portmans, not currently on website  (I went back and purchased this one)

Top: Country Road

Outfit selection
I take phone pictures of outfits I am happy with, it reminds me of complete “go to” outfits I have put together (helpful in busy mornings). Please excuse the mess on the stair.  

Cue Dress (2009)


I also take pictures to help me decide on accessories for different occasions.



Please no judgement here until you try it! One of my girlfriends whom had a laugh at my “Wardrobe phone” has recently become a convert, I receive text messages of change room outfits for opinion all the time!
