Win a Marc by Marc Jacobs bag thanks to Reebonz

I've been so busy lately it's kinda insane, if you haven't heard by now I'm now the Plus Size columnist for Shop Til You Drop magazine - which has just gone to a fortnightly mag from monthly. I am so excited to have my name in print in the largest fashion magazine in the country - talk about dream come true! Seriously, I've bought STYD mag since it's launch and for me to be writing for the mag and writing a plus size column at that is something teenage me would faint over. Plus size fashion was never in any of the mags I bought as a teen, if this column in any way helps someone build confidence like it would've helped me then it's worth all the stress. Talking about shop til you drop, boy did I  ever shop til I drop over the weekend! This whole outfit is practically new, the Alpha60 pinafore dress was on sale at Alphaville and as I've been looking for a midi length pinny for a while I bought it on the spot. Unfortunately it gets wrinkly fast, but maybe with a less thick top underneath I can control the wrinkles a little? The tie-dye top is by my most favourite Japanese label ever - Mercibeacoup, who I first saw at Tokyo Fashion Week way back in 2007. Every trip back to Japan I try to buy a piece but now thanks to Pet Shop Girls, a new-ish (new to me, it opened while I was away) boutique in the city that stocks all the best of Japanese fashion, I can do so from Melbourne. Gotta love this city.

Sunnies Nasty Gal $20
Pinafore dress Alpha60 sale down from $220 to $155
Tie-dye cardigan Mercibeacoup from Pet Shop Girls $265
Pink bag Marc By Marc Jacobs 'Preppy Sia' bag in Rock Lobster from Reebonz which you can WIN details below
White flatfroms Jeffrey Campbell Mayview from Zomp $135
Neon pink socks Gift from Fashiondacci
Necklace Symantha Rose available at Lenko
Pom pom bangle Glebe Markets $10

I wore this out on an art gallery hop with my sister over the weekend. There are so many amazing exhibitions on at the moment but not enough time to see them all.

I actually really want to replace these cheap white sunnies with an even better pair by Tsumori Chisato that are more oversized and cat eye that Pet Shop Girls stock, but for now these will do. The expense adds up when you take into account I need to put prescription lenses in all my sunnies, I already have two I need to do as it is.

I've been wanting an excuse to wear my Meadham Kirchhoff SS12 nail wraps for so long, I didn't want to waste them. Well this week Walter Van Beirendonck - one of my all time favourite designers, is coming to Melbourne for an exhibition and series of talks at the newly opened RMIT Design Hub so what better time than now? I love the cute vintage motifs from Meadham Kirchoff's SS12 collection and that there is also a vagina nail.

I'm so excited to be partnering with Reebonz to give away this cute over the shoulder nylon Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Preppy Sia' bag in rock lobster. I love the sporty feel of the bag but I feel that it can be styled in so many different ways. I decided to rock it with this architectural sporty pink outfit but you can tone it down or dress it up as it really is a statement piece.

My new Spice Girls inspired white velcro flatforms by Jeffrey Campbell. I remember wanting a similar pair so much when the Spice Girls were around, so excited to be able to rock them now.

  1. Absolutely has to be Marc Jacobs, he is amazing!

  2. If i had the money I would deck out my wardrobe in my favorite pieces by Romance Was Born.

  3. My favourite designer brands are probably Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs.

  4. Haven't managed to get on your blog for a while, you are sporting so many fabulous outfits, especially love the polka dots and your birthday post! Congrats on the STYD gig, well done you x

    Sleekit x

  5. My favourite has got to be hands down McQueen (or even McQ).

  6. The bag and glasses are fabulous, but I adore the sandals.

  7. I've always lusted after vintage Chanel bags from Reebonz as classics, but Givenchy has also created some amazing bags lately
    I feel the same way about nail stickers/ foils! I always want to save them for a week of productive outfit posts :-)

  8. My fave designer brand is Marc Jacobs. Everything about him. & All the subcategories of the brand. I'm obsessed haha

  9. I love Vintage Chanel for sure.

  10. I love Viktor & Rolf and locally, Romance Was Born.
    Your pink hair looks great btw!

  11. Argh Hayley I don't want Marc Jabobs but, but, but: THOSE SHOES (and the necklace, and the sweater). I have to take care to not turn completely into your copy cat, because I just love everything you wear so very much. I wonder why all the jewellery I love seems to come from Australia, I don't know a single designer here working with colourful resin or anything similar. Lots of love, xxxxx

  12. My favourite designer would have to be Alexander McQueen <3


  13. I am a HUGE fan of Marc Jacobs and would LOVE that amazing bag!

    Followed on Insta and FB.


  14. Oh my golly - congratufuckinglations lady! That is amazing! What an accomplishment! Can't wait to open the magazine and read your column!

    As for my favourite designer label, I would have to go with Chloe. Everything they bring out just oozes femininity, and I am never one to shy away from Pink or scalloped edges!


  15. Follow on Instagram and Facebook, love the Chloe bags....

  16. Um, that whole outfit.


    Favourite designer brands would be Romance Was Born, Prada and Miu Miu :)

  17. Done, done, done.

    At the moment I'm really digging AÉRON - check it out!

  18. congrats on becoming a columnist. Loving the out fit you put together not sure which I love best the tie dye card is pretty rad, but those sunnies a pretty amazing. I love how you mixed fluro pink socks with white Jeffery's it pops so much I'm so in love.

    You have an amazing sense of style feel as though you'd love my outfit I designed and made for 2012 wool awards its in my first post

    Feel free to check it out if you have the time


    Goodluck with work

    Xo Diana

  19. Favourite designer is so hard, but I'm going to have to go with Givenchy. They speak to my inner witchyness again and again.

  20. I really love the Hermès bags - I find the style rather classic, and easy to pair with just about any outfit.

  21. Love it! Too many fave designers to choose from but Yves Saint is really doing it for me right now!

  22. Think about the motives you want Chloe handbags that may help you decide whether it is worthwhile to you personally.

  23. Gail Sorronda, hands down!

  24. I love Melbourne's Tiffany Treloar for clothes, Peeptoe for shoes and Etiquette and Marc Jacobs for bags!


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message but remember to play nice!
