As we were surfing for stuff tagged under SS, we came across this on Tumblr! Written by our of our customers from Australia, E-von Lee Arevalo happens to be a mom, fashionista and a style blogger altogether. Here's what she had to say about our Vogue FNI event!
Vogue’s Online Shopping Night (VOSN)
What a kind gesture for Vogue Australia to host an Online Shopping event for online shopaholics on June 8th during the wet and rainy season. It is like Fashion’s Night Out without walking in heels down a red carpet, but in the comfort of your own home, sitting in front of your laptop in ugg boots and jammies. Judging from all the activity on Twitter it sounded like Vogue had a successful first online shopping night, so I hope there will be more to come!
But what comes with online shopping is the patience of receiving the goods. I have developed this sense of anticipation for quite some time now. It is worth it in the end when you scored a bargain with item + shipping equaling less than what you paid in the stores. Not to mention the amazing competitions that several retailers were running during the event!
On VOSN I stumbled across the StyleSofia shopping website (first time I heard of it!), which I instantly thought “this is a sign” because they have my daughter’s name! And their fashion is fun, feminine, flirty, easy to wear and a price tag that makes me grin like a Cheshire cat. I was also very fortunate to be one of the shoppers that picked up a KustomKix pack with my purchase. I received a Lime Crime lipstick in Retrofuturist,it is the perfect red to suit all skin tones. Ever since then, I have become a fanatical Lime Crime follower! And some goodies from Space Factory, including their nebula scarf and ‘We Believe’ t-shirt.

I hope you guys make it to the next VOSN, because it was such an exhilarating experience for me (minus the RSI from frantic clicking through sales) and I think anyone who has an eye for a bargain, especially when it comes to fashion, will have a ball. ‘Like’ the Vogue Australia’s Facebook Page or subscribe to their mailing list to keep up to date with their next VOSN.

There's been an amazing array of street style from Paris Fashion Week but these jumped out at me. Fun, colourful, quirky with a bit of a "don't mess with me" edge. Or could it just be those rocking sunglasses?
One of our favorite interviews, so we thought of reposting it here! Enjoy.
We interviewed Olivia Lo last May!
Shooting a commercial for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's line Olsenboye and releasing a lookbook for French swimsuit line shot by Sylvie Malfray are only some of the many highlights she experienced this year.
We touch base with Olivia to catch a glimpse of how these events helped shape her plans, wardrobe and ambitions to date.
I’VE BEEN BUSY WITH.. I’ve recently shot a commercial for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's line, Olsenboye and merged my blogunder London-based online magazine Fashionsalade.
I also just released a lookbook for a French swimsuit line, and I was photographed by the lovely Sylvie Malfray!
Soon, I’ll also be working for Swedish PR firm, Studio Total this summer! Beyond excited.
I'M INSPIRED BY.. Street style on the go, the 1920's and clean white spaces
BEST EXPERIENCE SO FAR? Attaining a Buyer position from January to April! Although it was brief, I learned a lot and discovered so many amazing brands through work and training.

I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO..
taking a road trip to New Mexico at the end of this month. Also graduating high school and going to New York for work this June.
Am also planning on taking a 6-city east coast trip in July, learning German and reading lots and lots of books.
So we were speaking to some friends over lunch and we got onto the topic of styling.
In particular, the rather daunting task of wearing those sheer shirts you see all over the blogosphere. We were throwing some ideas around and a few ways to effectively wear this piece without baring to much skin, so we thought we'd share.
How To Wear a Sheer Shirt
Sheer shirts and High-waisted Bottoms We cannot reiterate how chic this combination is, and forever will be. Easy, simple and effortless. Simply tuck your sheer shirt loosely into a pair of high waisted shorts or mid-waisted skirt. Fully buttoning your shirt up would be a desirable option.
Chic and Sheer, Underneath If you're in the mood for some artful layering, try wearing a sheer shirt underneath a wooly sweater to give your look depth and dimension. It'll definitely keep you a little warmer this Fall, and because of it's sheer texture, your outfit won't look overdone at all.
Color block We're sure you knew this was coming. Pair your sheer shirt with contrasting bottoms and outerwear for a ton of fun. Annabu (above) does it really well, and you can too.
Play with texture Sheer shirts definitely exude a more feminine appeal. Add a little twist and edge to your look by playing with a little texture. We'd suggest pleather, because of how amazing it works to toughen up a look. Try a white sheer shirt with a pleather skirt; we promise it'll stick with you for life.
Add your metals; Juxtopose! Another option if you're not so much into pleather; metal jewelry. They're perfect when worn over sheer fabric, as they also toughen up sheer, soft pieces. In turn, the sheer, slightly see-through skirts also make the jewelry pop! Talk about symbiosis...
Layer upon layer Because they're relatively thin and lightweight, sheer shirts are almost always, naturally flowy. Wearing a chic, sharp blazer will add contrast to your look, and not to mention volume. Wear your sheer shirt with a relaxed, chiffon blazer if you'd like to accentuate the flow, or pair it with something tailored if you prefer structure.
Experiment with prints
The beauty of the sheer shirt is that they're terribly easy to match. They serve to soften up hard, wild or tough prints so they make amazing styling options (for us at least!).
