Lisa's Top Picks

Monday, 4 May 2015

Today we gave Lisa a challenge. We said, "Imagine you have $300 to spend...what would you buy with it? What pieces could you take home that could be stylish, flattering and versatile". It sounds near impossible but she managed to pick 6 ITEMS all for under $300!

Here is a breakdown of Lisa's favourites! What she loves about them and why:

1. Ombre Scarf $39: Shop Now
This scarf instantly lifts any basic piece and adds colour, texture and depth to your outfit. It can be worn as a fashion accessory or simply to keep you warm! Lisa mentioned that she normally prefers not to wear scarves as she is larger in the chest but said that this scarf was great as it isn't bulky. As a result you don't look top heavy and can get away with it!
Unfortunately this particular colour way sold out instantly! However, we still have the Red & Grey Ombre Scarf in stock. 

2. Soft Black Draped Tee $49.95: Shop Now
The soft black draped tee is great as it comes in a size run (unlike some of our other 'one size fits all' oversized styles). This means, that you can size down if you're busty and don't want to look a tent. Let's be honest some times too much fabric is TOO much fabric. This piece pairs well with both the stripe mini skirt and is long enough to wear with ponte pants. Enough said?

3. Stripe Ponte Mini Skirt $49: Shop Now
This skirt is unlike other stripe numbers on the market at the moment, simply because it's thick! This fabric sucks you in and as Lisa likes to say, "makes you look a size smaller". If you still believe the horizontal stripes myth, don't, because it doesn't apply to this skirt!
If you're not interested in showing a bit of thigh, or knee, opt for the midi version instead -

4. White Woven Back Swing Top $59.95: Shop Now
Without sounding like a pushy salesperson, if you own a pair of jeans you need this top! Lisa loves this piece as it has a lower neckline and is flattering on a larger bust. It has a high-low scoop shape and fitted arms. As it has a different fabric at the back we all agree that it is dressy enough to take you from day to night.

5. Black Pull on Ponte Pant $49.95: Shop Now
If you've read our post, "What is Ponte?", then you will surely know we love the fabric and all the forms it comes in. Lisa isn't alone in loving this piece...we all love a pant that is slimming, versatile and really sucks you in! This style has a high enough rise that you're not pulling it up all day, perfection!

6. Black Knit Cape $59: Out of Stock
A knit cape is a necessity in the cooler months. Lisa loves as this particular style is the perfect weight for Queenslanders. We're honest when we say it's hot again right now so it's currently all we need. Bring on the winter chill please!
Unfortunately this style has since sold out. For something similar check out our -
