Hello everyone, I hope you all had an amazing Christmas! We had an orphans day at one of my friend's houses in Melbourne with lots of food, drinks, sun, moustaches and some really bad singing to all the best Christmas songs.

Here are a few of my favourite items from Missguided just now. They have so many cool jackets just now and their shorts fit really well so I have a few more on my wish list! I'm so glad that they deliver to aus :)

Ive been wearing this lace crop from Lavish Alice quite a lot recently too, its great for layering or wearing on those super hot days over a bikini. They have lots of pretty things on their website right now too so be sure to check it out :)

Happy Thursday guys!

August Street


Dress- c/o August Street at LoveOfEos. Gilet- Cotton. Bag- ASOS. Shoes- Choies.
Heyy Guys,

How pretty is this dress by August Street at LoveOfEos? I love the tapestry/baroque print and how lightweight and elegantly the fabric sits. Im really into shift dresses right now, especially the athletic side cut of this one. I've belted this one up so that it sits on me better as Im a little bit on the petite side but it looks cool unbelted too with a pair of heels!

Im starting to really look forward to Christmas now! Only 6 more days to go :) I just hope my cards and presents make it back to the UK on time.. the lady in the post office said no but I think she was just being a bit of a pessimist!

Happy Tuesday everyone :)

Aztec Sleeves

Jacket- c/oMaryJaneFashion. Top- c/o Loveofeos. Shorts-c/o Missguided. Bag- ASOS. Shoes-c/o Choies. 
Hey Everyone,

Hope you've all had a good weekend. Mine generally consisted of wearing this jacket whenever I possibly could even though it wasn't jacket appropriate weather, it just makes me feel all Christmassy! I hadn't actually heard of MaryJaneFashion before I received this jacket but Im glad Ive been introduced to them now, they have some really cool pieces ! Check out their site here.

These shorts from Missguided are my go-to shorts just now, I love them! Id been looking for a pair of high waisted dark distressed denim shorts for ages and these are perfect. They fit so well and are really reasonably priced too, Im going to have to stock up on some more styles for summer :).

AND last but not least the fashion company that I work as a stylist for have now officially launched their website, They are called The Wild One and you can find them heeeere :) and the good news is they ship worldwide! Happy shopping.

Shearling and Cobalt

Sleeveless Shearling Jacket- c/o Topshop. T-shirt- Topshop  Leigh Jeans- Topshop. Shoes- ZARA. Bag- ASOS. Sunglasses- ZeroUV
Hey Guys,

I've been dying to show you this shearling sleeveless jacket I picked out from Topshop the other week, I wear it aaall the time! Its great for just throwing on when the weathers feeling a bit changeable for some extra warmth or for layering over jumpers in slightly colder conditions.

I'm wearing my Topshop Leigh jeans agaaaain, I love wearing these guys so much. I am yet to find a comfier or better fitting pair of jeans, I think i'm on my third pair!

I really like the effect that cobalt blue has on a black outfit, its always so striking and just gives an outfit a bit of a pop :)

Hope you've all been having a good week, I cant believe how close we are to Christmas  It just seems to sneak up on you here in Australia!

Wine Tie Dye Maxi Dress

Dress- c/o inlovewithfashion. Necklace- Topshop. Shoes- ASOS. Bag- ASOS.



Hello Everyone,

How amazing is this maxi from In Love with Fashion? I love how the grape/wine tones give it a bit of a wintery look but at the same time this dress would look great in summer. Love currently stock this maxi in three different cuts which are all equally amazing so you should definitely check them out!

Im also in love with these ASOS Salute wedges too, they're the closest I can get to the Alexander Wang Danica shoes right now, and the thin wedge at the back makes them super comfy.

The fashion company I'm styling for just now are officially launching their website tomorrow at 12pm Australia time which is very exciting! It will be a busy busy day but I cant wait for it :) I will of course dedicate a blog post to some of the behind the scenes action and link you guys back to their site, luckily for everyone in the UK they do international shipping too!

 And one more thing! Love are offering readers of Nicola Claire 25% off full priced items until 1/1/13 with the code: NKIRKBRIDE25. Happy Christmas Shopping everyone!

Moto Western Shirt

 
Shirt- c/o Topshop. Vest- Topshop. Shorts c/o - Topshop. Bag- c/o MarcB. Shoes- c/o Choies. Sunglasses-c/o ZeroUV 

Hey guys! I hope youve all been having a nice weekend.
 
 Im absolutely loving this studded Western shirt that I received in the post the other week courtesy of Topshop, I saw it in their Autumn Winter look book and have been after it ever since!  Ive been wearing it far too much but I just cant help it! There are so many good things in our Melbourne Topshop store right now, I just want to go on a crazy spree every time I go in.
 
I cant believe how light my hair has gotten just from the sun, its crazy how strong it is in Australia -on sunny days you really feel the heat!
 
I seem to have developed a bit of a uniform these days which includes these amaaaazing shoes from Choies and this tote from Marc B. I do love a good staple item!
 
 
Happy Saturday :)

Burgundy and Black

Jumper-c/o Missguided. Disco Pants- c/o Topshop. Bag- c/o Marc B. Shoes- Zomp. Hat- Cotton On.
Hey Everyone,

Hope you've been having a lovely festive week! I always love a bit of Burgundy during the festive season and have been throwing on this waffle knit number from Missguided a lot lately! I love their stuff, so on trend and so reasonably priced! They are definitely one of my go-to brands at the moment!

I also needed to show you Topshop's take on the infamous Disco Pant, Ive always been a bit apprehensive of tributes of "the real deal" but I trust Topshop whole heartily so I knew investing in these wouldnt be a mistake and I wasnt wrong!

Many more pretty things up and coming on the blog this month :) Plus I will be able to send you the web link to the brand i've been styling for very very soon...keep your peekers peeled!

Baroque Swing Dress

Dress- ASOS. Waistcoat- ASOS. Necklace- Diva. Shoes-c/o Choies. Hat-ASOS. Sunglasses- c/o ZeroUV

 Hey Guys,

Hope you all had a good weekend! I had the most amazing time on the beaches of Torquay learning how to surf, it was one of theee best weekends Ive had here so far. I cant wait to go back :)

 Ive been dying to show you these boots I got from Choies last week, they have the most amazing shoes on that site I just want them all! They also have an amazing sale on just now so definitely check them out heeere.

Im also loving this baroque print swing dress that I got from ASOS! Although I have now found one down side of living in Australia... ASOS delivery is no where near as prompt! and the post offices arent open at the weekend so if you're working all week and you miss a delivery you're screwed! Its taken me like two weeks to get hold of this one.

So Ive just started my job as a stylist this week and got a sneak peak of the collection today, its safe to say that its amazing! I predict big things :). The company is called The Wild One and they will be launching their website in the next couple of weeks but for now you can check out their facebook page here.

Enjoy :)

Passion Pit

Top- Passion Pit Gig. Jeans- AllSaints. Bag-c/o Marc B. Shoes- Sportsgirl
 
Hello Everybody.

Three things to show you today! Firstly this amazing bucket bag from Marc B 
 that I have been wearing constantly since it arrived. Nothing beats a sizeable, black, fit-your-life-in-it, over the shoulder bag and this is one of the finest of the finest.

Ive also been wearing this Passion Pit band t-shirt a lot lately too, I picked it up at a festival called Park Life in Melbourne. Im a big fan of their music so with that as well as loving the design I was almost obliged to buy a little souvenir (which of course experienced a sleeve cut off as soon as i got home ).

And last but not least these amaaaazing shoes I got from Sportsgirl the other day, they are my new favourites!! I think these will be my go-to shoes for a little while now :)

The weather in Melbourne is going to be amazing this weekend so a big group of us have rented a beach cabin in Torquay right next to Bells Beach for a weekend of sun, sea, sand and a first attempt at surfing! Ahhhhh wish me luck.

 Hello Everyone!

How amazing is this sequin biker jacket I got from Lashes of London?! I absolutely love IT, perfect for almost any occasion. I'm quite knew to Lashes of London but they have some really really cool pieces so definitely check them out!

Its been a pretty exciting and hectic weekend, I spent Saturday at South Melbourne market checking out all the pretty haberdashery and vintage and then Sunday at the Spanish festival in Fitzroy having lots of paella and sangria!  It was such a good day.

I also got the exciting news that Ive secured a job as a stylist so that was  a VERY good day, more about that to come though!

Fluro Jumper

Jumper- CottonOn. Shorts-H&M. Necklace- Topshop. Shoes- Topshop. Bag- Zara
Hello Everyone,

I hope you had a good weekend!

Here is one of my outfits from the weekend :) I love this Fluro jumper, Neon Yellow is a colour im still really enjoying wearing. I really like that its a nice and lightweight fabric so sits well tucked into shorts or jeans.

Some drunk guy actually told me I looked like I was ''fresh off the Catwalk'' which I took as a compliment until he added ''because you walk like a cat!'' haha Im definitely stealing that one.

I just wanted to say as well, thank you for all of your comments lately they mean a lot :)


Happy Monday everyone!

Black and Blue

Jacket- Topman. Vest- Topshop. Skirt- Blackmillk. Bag- Zara, Necklace. Urban Outfitters. Shoes- Topshop.
Hey guys!

Its been a little while since I've blogged my Black Milk Cathedral skirt but as soon as I picked up this Topman Denim jacket last week I knew they'd go perfectly. I love to pair dressier items with more casual ones, I like a good balance!

 Im still as in love with this skirt as the day I first got it, I was sold out for ages on the Black Milk website and I had loads of people offering to buy it from me but fortunately Black Milk now have it back in stock so hurry hurry if your dont want to miss out again!!

I have the races coming up this weekend in Melbourne which should be a really good day, I did a bit of a last minute/unorganised ASOS order last night so fingers and toes crossed it comes in time! I will try and get some photos for you guys before I go too!

I also wanted to point you in the direction of a really good Scottish band that have just released their d├ębut single, If you like a bit of dance/electro you definitely need to check them out! You can have a listen here. They have some other really good songs too!

Hope youve all been having a good week so far :)

Camo Jacket

Jacket- ASOS. T-shirt- Cheap Monday . Shorts- Cotton On. Belt- Vintage. Shoes- Topshop
Hello!

I hope everyone's been having a good weekend. I needed to show you guys this Camo Jacket I got from ASOS last week, Ive been wearing it so much lately. I love wearing it with all white or all black to keep the look clean cut and not over complicated.

Ive heard its snowing back in Scotland so I almost feel bad putting this summery look up...  but Ive done it anyway- sorreeee ! I'm loving Cheap Monday at the moment, their collection is so good- especially the shoes.

Im sitting out on the balcony just now listening to some 90s pop and soaking up the sun before heading to the Gay Parade on Fed Square this afternoon. I'm worried that the urge and temptation to join in will be too much.. wish me luck.

Happy Sunday everyone!!

Sass & Bide Drapes

Dress- Sass&Bide. Necklace- Urban Outfitters. Belt- Topshop. Bag- Vintage. Boots- Topshop. Watcch Urban Outfitters.
I picked up this Sass & Bide t-shirt dress on a little shopping trip last week with some friends in Melbourne. Those of you that have followed my blog for a while know that im a sucker for a bit of draping! I love how they can completely  transform what could have been an average t-shirt dress into something a lot more elegant.

I've belted it to give a bit more shape and worn it with a vintage tassled bag and my faithful studded boots! I bet you guys are getting sick of these boots already but I cant help wearing them! They just make everything look so much better.

I couldnt find links to every item i'm wearing so have added some similar items in the scroll bar below :)
