Wishlist: Pastel Pinks

Wishlist: Pastel Pinks

Pastels and specifically pastel pinks have been spotted everywhere from the runway to the streets. I especially love this trend and have my eyes on numerous items in this fresh color. I think that that these feminine pinks are giving outfits that pop they need.

 I really enjoy the thought of these pastel colors in the winter. It breaks up the constant blacks, greys, and whites that always adorn my closet in the colder weather.

From a long coat to a pair of wide leg trousers, everyone has to get their hands onto some pastel pink.

Mother Denim + Acne + Tweed

Shop The Look 



Mother Denim Faux Leather Pants // Acne Tank (similar here) // Alexander Wang Large Marion Satchel // Six D Rings //  Vanessa Mooney Necklace (Here and Here) // Zara Heels (similar here and here) // Tweed Cropped Jacket (love this option)

If you haven't noticed yet, I LOVE leather. Leather pants, leather trimmed shirts, leather shorts, leather skirts, leather jackets, and obviously leather bags. I don't know what it is about leather but the second I put on a piece that has any leather in it I automatically feel chic. The weather in Brisbane on the other hand is making it extremely difficult for me to wear anything I truly love. Like leather, layers, and fur. 

The tank and the leather pants in these photos are yet another amazing bargain I got from Calexico on James Street. The Acne Studios top which was originally priced at $170.00 I got for only $25.00. These Mother Denim pants were sold for $300.00 which I got for only $60.00. The savings that were made at this sale are still seriously blowing my mind. If only that store had a sale everyday...

You can also follow me in my everyday life!

Its been a while since I put up a new outfit post but this was well worth the wait! I am obsessed with this Helmut Lang top that I got from Calexico on James Street. You know that sale I said I went to a couple weekends back? Well this shirt was $460.00 marked down to $90.00. Talk about savings! Obviously I had to include my new bag in this outfit (expect to see it in a lot more photos).

In other news,  I hope everyone in the States enjoyed their long weekend this past weekend! 

Next week look out for a post on my Instagram, @katieeveblogspot,  (and possibly Katie-eve.blogspot.com) for a video lookbook of this outfit and a couple others. I did a killer video shoot this morning with my good friend Laura Brain. She is an amazing photographer for Moda Creative in Brisbane.

Black Leather + Black Hightops

I think that when any girl wears all black it gives her a little something extra. ESPECIALLY when the all black outfit is half leather. I absolutely love this look. I matched this all black and leather ensemble with some studded hightops for an even edgier but casual look. These sneakers are becoming some of my favorites but I am still trying to get my hands on a pair of Isabel Marant Bekkets (like every other girl in the world has been). 

This weekend one of my favorite stores in Brisbane, Calexico, had the most outrageous and amazing sale I have ever been to. They were selling everything in their store for 80% off. Their stock includes Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Acne, IRO, A.L.C, and many other fabulous designers. I got a good haul so I cant wait to show all of you on my upcoming blog outfit posts!

Isabella Lonnginou's Work Room








This week I had the pleasure of visiting my good friend, Isabella Longginou, in her studio. This magical area in the bottom of her gorgeous house, is where she designs and sews her amazing pieces. While I was snapping photos and chatting, Isabella was cutting patterns and making custom orders to be shipped out that following day.

 Every time I go over to her house and her work studio she makes me fall in love with everything she has created and is in the works of creating. Her new Summer/Spring line has dropped on her website this week (pre-orders are already being taken) and although the line is small, I find myself wanting every piece. This Brisbane native has a keen eye for creating chic, romantic and flirty sillouhettes that make any girl feel amazing. Besides having her own line that is sold to the public through her website and in some select places, she also has made a business of making custom orders. Isabella loves making outfits for herself when she has special occasions. Every time she steps out in one of her custom made garments for a night on the town, a wedding, or a dinner party, she has her friends making orders for the same exact outfit by the end of the night. 

I have been close with Isabella since moving to Brisbane and I have always wanted to sit down and have an interview with her about her line, her goals, and her vision. Now I have finally gotten the chance to do that! I cant wait to share it with you all!

What was the inspiration for your S/S 14' line?: You know its funny, I always try and think of what my inspiration is and I honestly dont have just one. I am constantly looking at magazines and editorials, I cover my studio with everything that inspires me (as you can tell).  Once I see something I like, I get an inspiration to make something. It feels like each piece comes to me separately. After making a few pieces out of fabrics and materials that I love, I always think of other pieces that I can make out of the same material.  

Who is the IL customer?: 
IL inspires the beautiful, the playful and the feminine. Her pieces attract women who want to look classic and chic in their every day lives whilst still maintaining a form of simplicity and ease. 

Who is your favourite designer?:
My favourite designer would have to be Gucci. I love the modern 70's theme that flows through each collection. All pieces are so wearable, so inspiring and just "cool". 

If you could sell your line in any department store or boutique what would it be?:
I would love to have my collections in David Jones and if I were to choose a department store overseas, I would choose Bergdorf Goodman.

What direction do you see your label to going in the next 5 years?:
Within the next 5 years I am hoping to be stocked in boutiques across australia and within the next 10 years to be stocking overseas and to have my own shop/s either in Australia or overseas. 

Ive put up the pictures of Isabella's newest line. You can order all these pieces at Isabellalongginou.com.au

Cargo Green J Brand Jeans + Tony Bianco








Photos by: Adam Lambert

J Brand Jeans (love these) // Zara Shirt // Tony Bianco Kris Boots // Michael Kors Watch (love this one!) 

I love these J Brand jeans so much and to make them even more amazing, I bought them about 5 months ago for 40% off. No matter what time of the year, I think this shade of green goes great with all sorts of outfits and occasions. I paired them with a black belt, white shirt, and snakeskin peep-toe booties for a more edgy but casual look.
