Yesterday, I opted for a traditional black and white themed attire, for the FAMOUSmagazine Melbourne Cup party. On top I went with this extremely soft leather Shakuhachi tank, along with this Manning Cartell 'Snake Charmer' maxi skirt. The maxi, which boasts a graphic snake print, has 2 splits up the side lining, so when you walk it flows beautifully, allowing you to catch a cheeky glimpse of leg, making it feminine, yet flirty, perfect for the races! I fell in love with the skirt, whilst 'window shopping' in Paddington last week. Catching a glimpse of it in the shopfront, the term 'just window shopping,' could no longer be used! I also have to give a shout out to the wonderful shop assistant that was working on the day, who wrote me a little birthday card and had it positioned amongst the wrapping with my purchase. A Bonus for choosing a black and white colour scheme is 1. Well, the trend will never go out of style and 2. It's so easy to accessorise against, as there are so many options to utilize the theme. I included a hint of colour, with this Sportsgirl mint clutch, along with matching nails, to give it a bold touch!

  2. Love the outfit. The clutch works so well with it. Can't see your shoes!

  3. Ohh I have wanted the shakuhachi leather top for a while but it looked way too cropped in the lookbook. But it looks great on you! Love that you didn't wear a dress :) x
