Ok, so its been 2 days and everyone has been raving on about this wedding of the year or maybe the century? Hopefully it would last longer than her last marriage.
Since Kim went out with Kanye, her style had changed completely and I can't help but admit that she is very stylish.
I have also been waiting for these photos of her Givenchy wedding gown and here it is.. minutes after it was release on E channel I became excited and had to blog this.
This would have to be every woman's dream to have their bachelorette party in Paris then ceremony in Italy.
Note: Their wedding will be on their new season of Keeping up with the Kardashians which will be premiered on June 8 on E!

My regional manager gave me a mission which is to write a love letter to the entire Mimco store. Quite the challenge as it could be about anything. So I decided to write about how Mimco's latest collection suits the Sports Luxe trend. 
Here is a copy of my findings:

"Dearest Mimmettes and Mimdudes,

My name is Julia and I am a casual at Mimco Bondi Junction. I am deeply honored to have the opportunity to write this letter and have gone through a vast amount of research for this task which included window shopping, analyzing what women are wearing and magazines such as Russh, Elle, Vogue and shop til you drop.

Overall, there were many trends going through this winter such as 60s femininity, androgyny, thigh high boots, big coats and sweaters.  I would like to focus on what is really trending, Sport Luxe.

The sport luxe style can be worn from day to night because it is easy to glam up. The use of sport uniforms such as basketball jerseys, joggers, track suit lines, cricket sweaters, the monochrome textures and stripes create a luxurious minimal look. This look can be dressed up with some of mimco’s nebula or signet jewelry and of course the Sportivo watch. We can also accessorize the luxe outfit with a hint of Hitch Story jewels, Luxe Nomadica heels, a secret couch and top it off with a Novak cap to complete the Sporty Luxe outfit.

In conclusion, my experience at  Mimco has taught me that it would be beneficial to use everyday tools such as fashion mags, blogs, facebook and other sources of fashion media to accessorize our clients with the latest trends.

Hope you enjoy reading this letter and find it informative.

With Love

Dark Angel

Wearing: H&M dress, Wish coat, Mimco Boots, Mimco Bag 

Night out with by friend Bri, came across Top Shop and the new Kate Moss line. So boho!
Then we went to the cinema and sneaked in some whoppers from Hungry Jacks. We saw The Other Woman, which stars Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton and that good looking blonde guy who sleeps with his sister from Game of Thrones. The movie was a funny, girl power movie on how women conquer men who cheat.

A day at Bondi Junction

So I was catching up with the lovely Shelleigh (Above pic) and she had introduced to me this interesting cafe at Bondi Junction. Earth to table is a raw organic vegan cafe with really friendly staff and the food looked like a work of art. Suitable for vegans, vegetarians and anyone interested in exploring new food in a very healthy side. I also note that everything on the menu is sugar free, gluten free and paleo friendly since they use raw ingredients from local growers and suppliers.

 At that time I was craving cake.. This above image was part of the reason why
From the left I had the Give me love smoothie and the Chocolate hazelnut bombe, Shelleigh had the Give me beauty smoothie and Tripple berry coconut cake.
The Give me love smoothie is a raw chocolate superfood smoothie and with the raw chocolate hazelnut bombe, it was an overload of chocolate to a point i could only finish half the cake and a quarter of the drink. Shelliegh had an amazing berry smoothie, very light and it complimented her cake very well and she finished it in the end. At the end of our meal Shelleigh believed that raw food makes you happy, maybe she was right or maybe just our catch up that makes me happy.
Another thing that makes me happy is KITTENS!!!!
and 5 for $15 Belgium chocolate from HAPPYLAB!!!!

Valentino SS14 Off Duty Royalty

My last blog was about designing my dream living room with a tribal inspiration and today I came across Valentino's SS ready to wear collection which relates to a laid back tribal inspo.. Coincidence or a sign that Im going on a right direction?
What stood out it the collection is the loose fit, heavy embroidery, fringes and sandles. The earthy with bold primary colours definitely flow beautifully with the pattern as well. It seems like boho is and always will be tran-seasonal coz I could guarantee anyone can pull this collection off with a pair of boots for Sydney, Australia's current winter weather.
I know its kind of difficult to figure out how the heck can u find something that would be similar at an affordable price? Well its not hard, tribal looks are every where and can be eco friendly.. Sites like http://www.freepeople.com/http://www.treeoflife.com.au/Clothinghttp://www.hm.com/http://www.urbanoutfitters.com/urban/index.jsp, and of course asos.com are just a few I'd highly recommend.
