Woolmark "Fashion by Feelings"

 

 

Woolmark is synonymous with great design; their 47 year old logo was, this year, awarded “Top logo of all time” by
Creative Review Magazine, and with this campaign they’re hoping to draw another success in their history…

Here you are a global street style competition: Woolmark’s ‘Find Fashion by Feelings’ lookbook invites you to post your favourite wool looks into one of twelve ‘Feelings’ categories. You are then encouraged to vote for the outfits you love the most, with the most
‘loved’ look winning a AUD $12,000 holiday & wool experience. Additionally the public can vote for their favourite look,
with all voters entered into a weekly draw to win an ‘Emu Australia’ wool prize pack worth AUD $400.

When viewing the site, users are greeted with a myriad of different looks: From ‘Happy’ – an explosion of vibrant colour; to ‘Dark’ – a moodier, deeper, sultry side to all things wool, to all emotions in between.

Woolmark launched the “We Love Wool” Facebook page in early June. In less than 6 weeks since it’s inception, the
community now has 15,000+ fans. The thriving community provides consumers, retailers and designers alike a
touch-point to connect and discuss all things wool!

Post your look and follow this fun campaign that aims to educate people about wool as a natural and renewable fibre!

Jaune Paris

This frock is all scallop and show, with a row of flouncy ruffles descending from the left shoulder across the chest, flutter sleeves, and a cinched waist. Pair it with dark heels and an antique hat for the classic Lulu look, or sweet flats and a silk shawl for a sunny, relaxed look. The light and fabric is the perfect answer to getting dressed up in the summer’s heat, and the length keeps things ladylike when you take a seat on the grass to people watch.

DIY | Coffee table with hidden storage

Have you any old vin­tage suit­ca­ses gat­he­ring dust in the back of your clo­set? then look at this lug­gage DIY project.

vsct 8

Mate­rials

  • Wad­dell straight top plate hard­ware (4)
  • Wad­dell 4? tape­red table legs (4)
  • vin­tage suitcase
  • spray paint or stain for the legs
  • power drill
  • mea­su­ring tape

vsct 2

Ins­truc­tions

1. Turn the suit­case upside down, mea­sure and mark out the four areas to place the hardware.

2. Get out your power drill and screw in the hardware.

3. Screw in the legs!

Tips

  • If you want to be SUPER green, keep your eyes pee­led for a table with simi­lar “screw-in” legs at a thrift shop or yard sale. Give them a little test and try to uns­crew all of the legs before you get the table home (some­ti­mes the screws are strip­ped, and then you’re, well … scre­wed). You can find the hard­ware and legs at a DIY store, but they are also avai­la­ble at a range of sites online.
  • This pro­ject works best with old suit­ca­ses that were cons­truc­ted out of balsa/masonite or some other sort of thin wood. You want a case with a bit of thi­ck­ness — somet­hing the screws can sink in to.
  • Use cheap black spray paint to go with the black tones in this suit­case; dark wood stains look really nice, as well.

My favo­rite part? The hid­den storage.

 

This pro­yect is from the talen­ted Ash­ley Pos­kin and revi­si­ted by Kate.  Thanks for sha­ring, Ash­ley and Kate!

Daytime sequins look

how to wear daytime sequins

For a long time, sequins have been thought of as a night­time embe­llish­ment. While their gla­mo­rous nature does lend itself per­fectly to your night war­drobe, the modern girl knows how to mix things up by wea­ring sequins during the day. If you’re won­de­ring how to pull off day­time sequins, you’ve come to the right place. The Sar­to­ria­list recently spot­ted this gla­mo­rous girl in New York, who shows us how to style the look with ease.

Clearly, the trick to wea­ring day­time sequins is to keep the rest of your out­fit mini­ma­list and toned down. Take a look at our sty­lish sub­ject: her out­fit is com­pri­sed of mostly solid, dark colors, save for her coat, which is a dark mus­tard color. The color of the coat resi­des wit­hin the same area of the color wheel as her gold sequi­ned top, which is why this look works so well.

Get this look by pai­ring this Loreli Racer Back Tank by Joie with this Dou­ble Breas­ted Trench Coat  from Arden B. Add this pair of Skin­nie Clas­si­que Jeans  by Blank Denim and then finish it off with these Vina Tall Shaft Round Toe Boots by Lau­ren Ralph Lauren.
