Get a Red Carpet Look for Spring Racing Carnival

By Gisele Design
on October 09, 2015

The most colorful event of the year is officially upon us, and we’re bursting with excitement and style ideas to look red carpet ready for this year’s Spring Racing Carnival. And thanks to stellar spring trends like fierce modern florals and brilliant pastels, we can tell the fashions this year will be even more fabulous than last! We’re cueing ideas from celebrity style, fashion bloggers and the catwalk for gorgeous looks perfect for the races.

We love bold hues like this cobalt blue worn by the stunning Nikki Phillips during last year’s races. Wear this scintillating tone on your arm with the Charlotte Bucket Tote in the same brilliant shade of blue.

 

 

Although bright colors tend to fill the street on Stakes Day, sometimes simplicity can be the boldest choice. Celebrated style blogger Sara Donaldson sported a chic, all-black dress, elegant headpiece and clutch for a look that smoldered. We love this paired with the charismatic Madison Textured Clutch.

 

 

 

 

Jennifer Hawkins nailed the style stakes last year with her classic, head-to-toe pale pink ensemble adorned with a glitter clutch. Get her dazzling style with the Jacqui Sequin Box Clutch in rust.

Fashion blogger Nadia Bartel is never afraid to push the style limits, and we’re inspired by her ultra modern asymmetrical hemlines and bold color-blocking. If you want to go mod this year, reach for the statement-making Charlotte Winged Tote.

As you begin planning your favourite warm weather activities, from seaside excursions to outdoor cocktail hour, we want to help you go there in style.

If you’re heading for the sandy shores this spring & summer, your tote is the perfect oversized carry-all for all your beach day necessities. With a slip in pocket for your phone and shades, the Scarlett is more convenient than your typical beach bag – not to mention a lot more stylish!

 

City Excursion

 Whether you’re sightseeing in a new town or going on an all-day shopping escapade, your Scarlett Tote will be your daily go-to. Simply pick your flavour -- expose the dark green exterior for a sophisticated accent to your spring ensemble, or flip it inside-out for a fresh burst of sunny color.

 

 Drinks with the Girls

You’ve been waiting all winter for the outdoor patios and gardens to open, and it’s finally time to feel the sun on your skin while toasting cocktails with the girls!  For this outing, you need a small and chic bag, that’s why the Scarlett gives you two bonus extras. Detach the cute compact crossbody or glamorous wristlet, and you’ve got a red carpet accessory worthy of a night out.

This Weekend, Play with Prints and Proportions

By Gisele Design
on February 25, 2015

The weekend is the time that we can really express ourselves through our clothing.

This weekend, take a chance to mix things up a little. Create stylish yet interesting outfits by playing with proportions and prints.

 

 

When shopping with the girls, we love this relaxed weekend look that plays with proportion. Match an oversized handbag and cute denim shorts for chic look that’s totally effortless.

 

 

 

 

 

For a cinema date, pair a relaxed check shirt with a cute clutch. Wear a print that is a bold and bight as you can. The small bag allows the print to really make a statement on its own.

 

 

 

For the evening, add some serious bling to your look with an eye-catching patent clutch and plenty of jewels.

What to wear for any Valentine’s Date   - 13th February

Valentine's Day is coming up fast, and if you've got your plans made, there's only one thing left to decide – what you're going to wear.

Of course, you want to look special and somewhat festive without going over the top by covering yourself in love hearts and wearing every shade of pink available.

To help you figure out what to wear, we’ve compiled these great tips and tricks to help you out no matter what your plans!

Going out to a fancy dinner?

There’s a right way to wear red. Start with a bright red dress, then add heels, a sparkly clutch and some interesting jewellery, like a bold cuff or statement earring. Throw on a leather jacket for added edge and opt for a swipe of lipstick that matches your dress – while this may have been a no-no in the past, it’s an updated, fresh take on the bold red lip. If Beyoncé’s embracing the trend, we’re all for it.

 

A low-key night at the movies?

If you’re going to be sitting down for several hours on end, your biggest priority should be comfort – but that doesn’t mean it’s OK to wear a sweatsuit. Instead, look to some skinny jeans or shorts that aren’t too tight. Match them with a chic white top, simple accessories and add some wedge sneakers for the perfect finish. Make sure you pack a blanket scarf in your bag, as it’s always cold in the cinema, which you can then throw around yourself (and your significant other), then simply tuck back your bag when you leave.

 

 

Staying in? 

It’s very tempting to stay in your comfiest sweat pants for a night in, but not on Valentine’s Day. With clever styling, you can master being comfortable whilst still looking chic. A jersey maxi dress will cover all sins whilst you’re sitting down. It will also mean you’re super comfortable (and therefore relaxed), and the length of the dress will allow you to drape across his couch looking like a Greek muse. Pair this with a soft cashmere cardigan and a slouchy style handbag as the finishing touch to that super relaxed look.  It’s still a date, so maintain an element of refinement with your relaxed look buy putting your hair in a ballerina-style bun and a pop of colour with a hot pink lip.
