Sass & Bide, It's all in black and white

Bring on Spring 2013, this years shows that have hit the Runway in London have really blown my mind I've read reviews where a few have made comments about the constant black and white colour scheme that is hitting the runways, I welcome the change I mean florals again? Neon again? nothing is as good as black and white, you can take it from season to season and of course you can always match it with your bold separates. The Sass & Bide black & white themed collection is easily one of my favourites I have seen to date , one of the best things about the Sass & Bide label is that so many of the designs are so easy to wear and you can take them from day to night with a few accessories or none at all. 

 Ridiculously good... Can't wait for this to drop into Boutiques everywhere...

Just Keep Swimming!

Perth has welcomed some beautiful weather over the past few days, the weekend was absolutely beautiful, I must remember to start bringing my camera with me everywhere... But I can't wait for it to really heat up so I can strip down and go for a swim... This means new bikini time! One Teaspoon have just released there new Swim 12/13 campaign, Summer can't come soon enough!

 Personally I am loving the mint two pieces... God actually the whole collection is incredible and to be honest I definitely think I'll be seeing more of the beach this Summer!

Dion Lee Does London...

It's no secret that I am secretly in love with just a few Australian fashion designers... Josh Goot, Garth Cook,  Michael Lo Sordo and Mr Dion Lee take the cake! So it's no surprise that my heart is practically having a meltdown when I saw Dion Lee's Spring 2012 RTW collection hit the runway for London Fashion Week*.

Dion Lee pulled out of the MBFWA earlier this year and as a reflection it was definitely worth it, the RTW show was sleek and structured just like his collections from the past and the present! Lee's London debut consisted of 25 looks and majority of each looks definitely gave off an athletic vibe, sharp tailoring, incredible cut outs and a little bit of leather thrown in for good measure. Some of the dresses really are works of art, naturally they aren't within my reach unless I sell my soul, but these three dimensional dresses and suits really were something, however the classic pieces still left such an impact and I loved the 'neon' tangerine that broke up the black, white and nude colour theme. Here's my a few of my favourite looks if you'd like to check out the entire collection you can view it here

This man really is a genius! 

*(when I say I saw the collection.. I mean it was sent straight to my email ha! If only I was really there!!)

Restyle Day 30 - End of an era...

An end of an Era, that's how it feels for me! This past month has been absolutely chaotic when it comes to blogging and my life outside the blog... But more on that later. Over the past month I have posted more outfits than I have during the entire lifespan of Blonde Suburbia! I can't believe its over... In the meantime I can't wait for the Restyle Runway show it is going to be awesome, if you can get down there you can see us strut our stuff, or watch me stumble either way it will be a great show and all of this was for such a great cause and it couldn't have been done without Lotterywest & Perth Fashion Festival!
Although my approach to Restyle is a little different, yes a lot of my items were my own throughout the month. But I have managed to pick up some incredible staples that I wouldn't of even dreamed of picking up in an Op Shop. My leather numbers are easily my favourite and my black sparkly cooper St dres for a mere $12? This challenge has definitely opened up my eyes and left my bank account looking a little healthier. Up until this challenge I rarely spent anytime in ANY opshops but even after these 30 days I know I'll be back in an Op Shop soon again!
