LIKE YOU DO

 .: Playsuit, HelloMolly | Heels, Tony Bianco | Necklace (worn as bracelet), Lovisa | Bracelet, Witchery | Rings, Sportsgirl :.

 I fell in love with this playsuit when I was browsing Hello Molly - the flowy and drapey silhouette just screamed elegance and class! And honestly, it was the off shoulder and low back detailing that sold me - I have nothing like this at home so why not? 

Paired this with some silver jewellery pieces [used a necklace as a bracelet] and my new favourite heels. For me, the strappy heels and simple chained details of my bracelets paired with this flowy playsuit really helped create an almost-grecian effect... 

Perfect for a quiet night out with a couple of close friends!

VALENTINES

 .: Skirt, Paint It Red | Heels, Zu | jewellery, Colette + Diva | clutch, Colette :.

This years Valentines look, thought I'd pair up lace and sequins (my fave combination clearly - refer to past evening looks haha). Finally got a chance to wear this pastel-y sequinned piece I bought quite a while back. One of those 'it's pretty but where/when will I wear it?' items [only because I love wearing black and this piece encompasses pretty much every colour of the rainbow BESIDES from black].

Anyway thought this simple look would be perf for a cute date night xx

Happy Valentines!

FOR A THRILL

.: Top, Chicabooti| Shorts, American Apparel | Boots, Public Desire | jewellery, Colette + Sportsgirl + Lovisa | belt, Vintage | bag, Markets :.

HEY! Is that some colour I see? YES! I have finally put together a non-monochrome outfit, a big milestone for Ambrosial Minds (half srs, but srs).

Anyway, I thought these huge shorts and these chunky boots were perfect for each other, kinda got that tough construction worker-y vibe (tough gal for ya!). SO lyrical with my words, I know. Also managed to throw in more colours with my turquoise nails, complimented by that rusty gold and turquoise jewellery... 

So yeahh, baggy shorts, old belt, chunky shoes, and a tattered satchel later.. VOILA!

enjoy!

INDOLENCE


.: Top, Chicabooti | Skirt, Paint It Red | Heels, River Island |clutch, Colette :.

Despite being fairly certain this skirt is supposed to fit the wearer to create a trumpet flare silhouette, I decided to try it out anyway despite my lanky shapeless form, resulting in an odd half trumpet, half a-line composition. But hey, I tried!

As usual, I stuck with my black and white palette (I'm starting to think someone needs to burn my entire closet before I pick up some colour). Basically this is what I wore to family dinner, so I kept it neat and simple, and a little classier (or maybe just longer, you guys decide haha).

Any suggestions for my next post? Starting to think I've neglected this blog to the point of failure. TY to my laziness haha

SNAKEPRINT






.: Top, Dollygirl Fashion | Shorts, Dollygirl Fashion | 'Build' sandals, Windsor Smith | travel wallet, Colette :.

Finally getting to travel a lot more this year now that my extremely stressful 2014 HSC craze-filled year is over! I'll probably be able to relax a bit more and take more time to find fab locations for these shoots :) 

Here, I'm just wearing a snakeprint top, a twist to the classic simple white cropped, with some white skorts. Pretty simple once again, just a casual party outfit idea. I'm going to make it a goal from now on to get into the habit of accessorising because I really don't wear much jewellery (as you can see), yet I have a whole box sitting on my vanity, piling up from my random jewellery sprees! ugggh!

CABARITA


.: Bandage Top, Choies | Hampton Shorts, American Apparel | Wedge Heels, Rubi :.

Just another casual outfit, pairing a simple white top with some cute girly aa shorts with some comfy heels. Confession though; my shorts are a mess because I forgot to iron them. Cute as they are, they are a bit of a pain to handle in the laundry, or just on the go as well, coz they crinkle like craaazy! Still cute, still comfy, so still a happy purchase.

enjoy!

2015

HAPPY NEW YEAR

I hope y'all had a great time celebrating NYE with friends and family, whether it be viewing the regular firework display at the harbour or from the TV screen at home [all you couch potatoes out there, I feel you]. This year, however, being a fresh new adult and all, I decided to watch the fireworks from a club venue with a couple of my closest friends, saying goodbye to that stressful, hectic year that was 2014. 

As well as saying goodbye to the tragic year that was 2014, I'd like to make several amendments to my blogging habits haha. So some Ambrosial Minds new years resolutions?

1. One new post every week (maybe Wednesday)
2. Runway reviews & experimentation with posts
3. Improve this blog theme and find new fonts etc
4. Interact more with subscribers or readers <3 <3
5. Incorporate a bigger variety of brands & styles 


Nice & simple so let's hope AmbrosialMinds survives haha

Unfortunately, I didn't manage to shoot my nye outfit [didn't want to lug around a giant DSLR to the club, ya feel? (hence that iPhone fireworks photog)]

Lots of love,

alice xx
