The interview dress


I’m calling it, this is my interview dress! (Or just my new favourite office dress). While I love coordinating a whole outfit from the shoes, pants, top to accessories, sometimes I just want to chuck something thing on and walk out the door.

That’s what this dress is for me. It’s a no brainer piece that is versatile and makes me feel like a woman of power.

The conservative cut makes it perfect for the corporate environment and client meetings. For those situation, I would pair it back with a blazer and some pointed heels.

Then…. the the versatility of this dress shines through. I’d wear it to after work drinks, or hell even a date simply by changing accessories and outwear.

Here I’ve added a leather jacket and some statement heels and boom my feelings change. It makes me feel incredibly sexy as it shows my curves.

Having a basic body con like this is one of my wardrobe staples. I look for quality fabric and longer lengths when shopping for dresses like this. Albeit I would have loved it more in black or red, but the grey is still a great basic to mix and match with.

For only $99.95 I also think it’s highly justified! What you think? If you have a favourite place to get body cons that are long enough to cover your peach be sure to let me know too! #sharingiscaring

The KOVU experience


Minimal vibes. Beautifully styled interior. Tunes 🎶

KOVU is a beautiful hair and beauty salon located in Narrabundah. 
I've been coming to KOVU for a couple of years now. I had seen KOVU's beautiful work and space on my Instagram feed but had never been in before. After a friend recommended them, I booked in!

I’ve been on quite a hair journey with KOVU - starting with cuts, then finally getting the courage to venture into balayage blonde. I'm currently on my journey to grey hair! Read on to find out more about the KOVU experience.


You're greeted at the beautiful counter when you walk in. The entrance area is so serene, with lots of plants and space to hang out if you ever have to wait. If you visit on a Thursday evening, this entrance space will also have a musician performing live - I have heard the most amazing voices while having my hair done!


There’s a menu of tea options, or you can opt for wine! A beautiful tray is brought out with a KOVU cookie. Such a delicious treat!


I have always found the ability of hairdressers to seamlessly weave from client to client magical. This is definitely the case at KOVU. There’s the right balance of attention and time to get some work or life admin done during the appointment! I’ve brought my laptop with me to work during my appointments many times!


My hairdresser at KOVU is Jazzi - who is now the salon manager! Keep your eye out for another post soon where we chat to Jazzi!  



THE ESSENTIALS
Address | 14 Iluka St, Narrabundah ACT 2604 - parking is easy (win!) There’s plenty of street parking for free outside the salon.
Phone | 0423 279 620

NyakiirL My favourite store for clothing I would have to say ally fashion in Belconnen mall and for just general things I would have to say Kmart because both stores are affordable and they have everything.

Nyakiir: Vasaline jelly for my lips.

Deejay: Who is your style icon?
Nyakiir: Rihanna and Kendall Jenner they both never go wrong.

Who What Wear: Boho meets sheike


Confession time. I’ve secretly been crushing on Sophia and her seemingly endless wardrobe. So it was time I pulled her aside and snapped her for the Fashion Vault.

Check out Sophia’s style and my Q&A with her

Deejay:  Tell me a bit about your outfit, why did you choose to be shot in this?
Sophia: I chose this outfit because it's who I felt like being that day. My wardrobe is so versatile it allows me to be anyone I want to be. I can't always explain it, I will just throw pieces together and be like, yeah, this is me today.

Deejay: Describe your style in three words:
Sophia: Normally my style is sheike, classic and a statement, but today it is boho and sheike.


Deejay: What’s your favourite store in Canberra and why?
Sophia: Bardot. It always has pieces that fit my style. Both work appropriate and weekend wear. If ever I need a last minute outfit, this is usually where I will find it.

Deejay: What’s one item that’s always in your handbag?
Sophia: Too faced Lip Injection lip plumper from Mecca.

Deejay: Who’s your style icon?
Sophia: Nicki Minaj – I just love her wild outfits, although impractical for real life, it’s totally who I would channel if I were famous. She so bad ass. If I’m being more practical, then Blake Lively is my style icon.

Deejay: What’s the best piece of fashion advice that has been shared with you?
Sophia: My mum used to own a clothing store when I was younger and so everything I know is because of her. She would never let me wear what was cool when I was a kid and she would always say to me, ‘dress for your body, not because it’s in right now’ and honestly it’s the best advice, especially because I ended up being a curvy girl who needs to be more conscious and choose wisely. And my mum taught me how to do that. Because of her I can trick people into thinking I’m smaller than I am 😉.
