Pop Of Red

It seems I’m forever living in stripes! Can you blame me? Stripes are just too cute, and so easy to wear!! 

I’m already over the Winter drab, hence my face in all the photos above, cue major ‘pissed off expression’.  In fairness it started raining halfway through taking these, and nobody likes a wet mane.

We’re half way through Winter and to be honest, I’m surprised I’ve made it this far already without complaining because ya’ll know, I’m a Summer baby! Anyway the dark and gloomy Winter clothing is officially getting me down, so I opted for a pop of red in my recent outfit, to brighten it up a little. 

Enjoy your week lovelies,

Finding The Perfect Mascara Thanks To Review.com

Finding the perfect mascara can be a challenge to say the least, with dozens of brands and products all claiming exceptional results to; volumize, lengthen and thicken your lashes, its not easy to differentiate what products live up to their promise, and those that do not!

Most Aussie women (and men) will agree with me that trial and error in the mascara market can be a costly one. Cosmetics in Australia are on the pricey side, and there’s nothing worse than wasting your hard earned dollars on a shitty mascara that clumps your eyelashes together like glue….Yuck! What’s more, shoppers (particularly women) are in-undated with competitive and clever marketing on numerous beauty products; which makes the process of finding the perfect mascara confusing and that much harder! 

That was until I was approached by a US company called ‘Review.com‘, whom have curated a list of the best mascaras on the market; kindly reviewing them for us (find the full article, here). The company have spent hours researching the best mascaras via eCommerce stores, like ‘Sephora’, and review sites such as ‘Make-up Alley’; as well as trialing numerous products and consulting with industry experts. All of this research resulted in seven stand out products, with one of my go-to mascaras making the list! Yes, I’m talking about you, Maybelline ‘Great Lash Washable Mascara’; voted the best ‘drug-store’ mascara’ on the market. 

Benefits ‘They’re Real’ mascara took the crown for the best ‘overall’ mascara, and has subsequently been added to my list of make-up to purchase next!

Hey guys,

For those of you who have been following along with me for a while now, know that each week I share my favourite #OOTD. Well, I’ve recently created my own personalised hashtag, ‘elenaandstasestyle’, to not only compile my everyday style; but as a way to showcase the trends, people, places, brands, and ideas (the list can go on, and on…), that have in some way influenced my style.

If you follow me on Instagram (you totally should), I would love for you guys to connect with me through my personalised hashtag, to inspire not only myself but each other!

Instagram is an incredible place to connect and inspire with like-minded people globally; so share the trends that your loving, your ‘outfit of the day’, or that designer piece your lusting over, through #elenandstasestyle.

PS. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again, you need these Isabel Marant boots in your life! Seriously the best shoe investment I have made…EVER!!! Get on it babes. 

Love and Light,

Ash xx

Hey babes, here’s a look I wore out shopping this past Sunday, in the City!

There was a sneaky little visit to Gucci while I was there, and I came home with something small, but I left lusting over the ‘Bengal’ Princetown slipper!! I’m still in two minds about this style; one obviously being the price ($820 if you wanted to know), and two, practicality. Like always, I can envision myself wearing them with a pair of denim cut-offs or white jeans in the Summer time! 

I would love to hear your thoughts people??!!

With love,

With the weather finally dropping here in Perth, Winter has officially set in and its time to start rugging up! I’ve always loved ‘over-the-top’ scarfs, that are super warm and cuddly; they’re also a simple way to accessorize an otherwise basic outfit.

I also have to make mention to my new sunglasses from Ilymix . I mean… They are the cutest reflecting sunnies going around. At only twenty US dollars and free worldwide shipping, they won’t break the bank either! 

Until next time,

Hi everyone, here’s a look I wore recently for a job interview!

Deciding what to wear for a job interview can be a daunting process to say the least… You need that perfect outfit that screams ‘I’m sophisticated and responsible’; yet you want to look ‘on-trend’ and ‘stylish’, without looking like you’ve tried to hard! My number one tip is to keep it simple, you can’t go wrong with a white shirt, a pair of tailored black pants, and minimal make-up. This outfit doesn’t have to be boring, and like in the pictures above, I’ve switched the ordinary button-up white shirt for bell sleeves for a stylish upgrade! 

I would love to hear your thoughts!

Until next time,

Here’s a look I wore over the weekend… A little ‘Parisian Chic’.

Stripes and denim has to be one of the easiest outfit combinations, and one of my favourite go-to’s! It’s a simple outfit, but because its now Winter, layering over a trench coat and neck scarf are easy ways to dress-up an otherwise basic outfit! Some of the items I’m wearing, I’ve had for years!!! These items have built the foundation for my wardrobe, and I wear them season, after season with a bit of mix-and-matching. Sometimes style is more important than fast fashion. 

love,

Ash xx

Seed Heritage flares (no longer available)||Piper jumper via Myer||Louis Vuitton handbag||H&M bag charm||Isabel Marant boots||Prada sunglasses

Happy Monday babes, here’s what I wore to church yesterday! 

If it wasn’t completely obvious by now, I’m kinda obsessed with the flare trend!! I  scored these Seed Heritage denim flares on their outlet website for $30, the ultimate bargain. Unfortunately they’ve sold out. But don’t worry, there are many more varieties being sold online, from designer brands to high street, ranging from online boutiques, such as; The Iconic, My Theresa, The Outnet, and ASOS. Now I completely understand that flare jeans aren’t for everyone, but if you do want to rock them, my one advice is to tailor them to your body! When tailored correctly, flares have the ability to elongate the leg and give the illusion of height. 

This is also the second time this month that I’ve worn this gorgeous Piper jumper, because it’s so warm and cuddly. Like I’ve said previously, I purchase items to wear again and again; and to me that’s the epitome of style. 

love,

Ash xx

Hi my loves!! Here’s a look I wore a few weeks ago for my birthday dinner!

To say I don’t have an obsession with these ‘Quay‘ sunglasses would be a dirty lie, because if you hadn’t noticed, I’ve been wearing them in every single blog post lately…. I love them!! I also love, love, love this lace shirt that I picked up on sale from Myer. I’ve always adored lace; its timeless and sophisticated, and in my opinion, pairs beautifully with denim. 

Are you a fan of lace? Let me know in the comments down bellow!

I’ve been wanting a pair of thigh high boots for a while now, so when I found these taupe ones on sale at Betts (hello $40!!!), I just had to have them! I paired mine on Sunday with light denim skinny jeans and a bell sleeve for serious 70 vibes while out and about in Fremantle. These boots will also pair well with a floral minnie dress!

Until next time,

Ash xx
