MAKE A STATEMENT

Wednesday, 30 April 2014 | Comments: 0

My friend has always made a bold statement with her bright pants and simple top which really captured my attention and it made me wonder, can I pull that off? I'd say my favourite feature on my body is probably my legs. They're not particularly toned or longer than an average person's but I feel like if I wear some heels, my legs are more defined and long (obviously). I don't know, there's something about them that are more satisfying than the rest of my body. It's not that I'm insecure, but everyone has that part of their body that they like more than the other, right? Or am I just weird.

I got these pants from Marella the other day, they're maybe 5cm longer than my whole entire leg, going from the top of my waist to the floor but to be honest, I thought that if I put on some heels, it'd be good to go... so I bought them. Keeping my friend's style and my body figure in mind, I managed to (I think) pull this off? That question mark makes all the difference. It doesn't matter what other people think. At the end of the day, I'm satisfied and that's what matters. My mum always told me, if you have a spark of confidence in yourself, others will have confidence in you. How can others have confidence in you when you don't have it yourself?


Make a statement with your confidence, make a statement with your fashion, make a statement with your successes. Things may not work out the way you want it to at first but it will come - as cheesy as that sounds. People always say "Things will get better" - and it's true. No matter what situation you're in, it'll get better with time.

THE CO-OP

Thursday, 24 April 2014 | Comments: 0
This pretty bike just made the whole store even greater (I don't know why there's a random bike sitting there but it somehow works in a magical way)
Yesterday, I headed into the COOP by Trelise Cooper store in Takapuna on a whim. I've always walked past it after I stopped at The Department Store, either with the reason of not having time or... to be honest, I don't really know. I've seen Trelise Cooper clothing on red carpets, fashion shows (Britomart Fashion Sessions 2014) and just ordinary people wearing it on the streets of New Zealand. I have always loved the style as it's a combination of sheek, classic and timeless so I decided 'why not?'. Stepping into the room was like a breath of fresh air, the lighting was perfect and had a very airy feel meaning, it's not cluttered like many other stores I've been to. Simple, roomy and easy to see the clothes - everything a store should be. The lighting in the store was very much dependable on natural lighting which I love.

The store manager at the time (Zoe) was very friendly and kindly said "Yeah sure! Go for it!" when I asked if I could take a few photos of the store for my Instagram/blog. Some staff in other fashion stores are rude and strict on their no camera policy which I respect but if it means getting the clothes out there into the public/media, then why not? We started chatting about a few things after I'd taken the photos: Instagram, Bunnies, 2-3 year old kids pronouncing hilarious things wrong, FOUREYES, Trelise Cooper Boardroom and many more. This is how to make a good impression on a customer - A+ customer service right there. Anyway, I need to stop rambling and let you get on with this small tour around the room.

Follow me through the different aspects of the store and see my favourite outfits/pieces I saw. 


This bike makes me want to ride it in the streets of Greece or France while carrying a bouquet of roses with a white floral dress and big flowery hat.

TAILOR SKINCARE

Tuesday, 22 April 2014 | Comments: 0
Featuring Tailor Masque (Mask) and Tailor Moisture (Moisturiser)
A little while ago, Tailor Skincare sent me a few products to try out as I've expressed that I'm intruiged by their products. Why was I intrigued? Well, to be honest, you can't really trust that products these days are indeed natural and organic but there was a gut feeling that told me that this was the real deal. Ever since I realised how ingredients of a product are so vital and that it can determine how the skin looks and feels in a year or two's time, I've been very cautious on what I put on my skin. That goes for both what you consume and what you put onto your skin. The quote, "You get out what you put in." is the most honest thing.
Let me just put it out there before you jump to conclusions. I am not disappointed at all by all aspects of these products. The smell, the feeling, the packaging and the outcome on what you get out of these product is truly something! I rarely post up skincare posts but as you can see, I'm quite satisfied. I came into this with the mindset of only posting about this skincare line if it went beyond my expectations - because that's how I roll - and as you can see, this is the outcome.

Tailor Skincare is a skincare brand that values natural and organic ingredients, just like me. There are no harsh chemicals, fillers or parabens in any of the products and is made in New Zealand using natural, local ingredients. Tailor Skincare also believes that animals testing will never be used (All products are tested on humans, HOORAY!). 
All bottles and jars are made from royal blue glass, what this means is that it can be recycled or reused. The bottles look beautiful, may I add. If you are someone who values this or have sensitive skin, Tailor Skincare is the perfect skincare line to add to your skincare routine. 

FFS #1

Sunday, 13 April 2014 | Comments: 0
I always enjoy watching fashion shows, whether it's from New York Fashion Week or New Zealand Fashion Week. There are always beautiful collections with beautiful music - all in all perfect shows to me at least and maybe someone, somewhere share the same passion and drive I have for these shows. I can sit there for hours and hours (My longest fashion show streaming was 7 hours - because I had nothing to do) These shows always leave me craving for more and craving for the pieces of clothing that the models have on them. 

Maybe someone, somewhere share the same taste and styles that I have or if someone, somewhere don't share the same tastes, maybe they're still interested nonetheless. I want to share my fashion style with you and show you how I would dress if I had unlimited access to the dollar bills. 

So... this is a new series of blog posts that will be permanent here on Nicrific.com! I'm so excited to share my love of these shows with you all. One thing i'll be doing is naming a few pieces that I think are perfect in my eyes and will/are [be] iconic. These fashion shows that I will be posting may or may not be current. Some maybe from years ago, some may be the latest but don't let that get you down! Some fashion trends resurrect in a few years time and you'll be glad you knew about it. I will stop rambling in 5, 4, 3, 2 ,1.

Christian Dior F/W Ready-to-Wear 2010


Opening: Karlie Kloss

Let me just say something before I say anything else - This is probably one of my most favourite collection from Christian Dior ever. ONE of my favourites, not my all time favourite. Anyway, I love it when John walked out at the end, strutting his stuff and acting fitting in with the mood and vibe of the collection. I also want to add that Christian Dior's themes are always amazing like the Film Noir concept in Christian Dior S/S 2010 - John Galliano is a genius. Here are some of my favourite outfits from this show. 

MY DEAR, PASTEL

Thursday, 10 April 2014 | Comments: 0
I just love those heels so much - they make my legs look way longer than they really are.
Coat: Shilla Australia Heels: ASOS Shorts: ASOS Top: Abercrombie & Fitch Glasses: Irevi Coliseum
Pastels are so, so in this year and you can tell that by just looking at the street styles or people on Instagram such as Charlotte Fisher (Fashion blogger/YouTuber - UK) Pastels are beautiful for any season - even some metallic pastels are b-e-a-utiful. I put together one of my favourite pastel outfits yesterday - check it out and hopefully you can grab some inspiration from it!

Tip: During Winter, pastel coats tie the whole outfit together - I promise
