Fashion Friday: Tessellate

Nick helped me shoot this Fashion Friday edition near a church which had some old buildings nearby. I wasn’t too sure about the location but I thought some of the photos turned out well.

I have worn the black shirt with a white skirt most of the time but I tried it with this slightly flared skirt that I got some time ago at a discounted price some time ago. The skirt doesn’t actually have anything wrong with it, just a bit of a break in the pattern, but it’s not that noticeable.

My mum bought me the top, which I immediately loved when I saw it. It looks great. I like the collar (love pointed collars) and the way the shirt goes out at the back. It has a thin cut out section at the back that is a little transparent. I think it’s a nice touch! Because of that, I find that the shirt generally goes better with tight skirts like tube skirts. It does go nicely with this flared skirt though. 😄

I am wearing the same shoes I wore in Peach & Pearl. Because of the longer length of the skirt, I felt it would go better with a pair of heels that didn’t cover the ankles. I also wore the same coat that I debuted in Winter Rose. It’s a staple winter wardrobe piece!

I bought the necklace from Dainty and Bold because I had been eyeing their statement necklaces. Some of them are really heavy-looking and have a lot going on, but this one was one of the nicer, simpler ones. I was hoping it would be longer so it could sit comfortably under my collar but I am wearing it at its longest length. Recently I have been liking wearing statement necklaces under my collar.

I thought the earrings matched with the necklace because of the shape and the gold colour. My regular studs probably don’t go too well, but I hardly change those.

I am wearing the bracelet I got in my last Helene Jewelry box. Although I said in my review that it was my least favourite bracelet, I got very used to it and I actually love it a lot now. I like that it is made of simple links but has layers so it definitely makes more of a statement.

I titled this edition Tessellate because of the pattern of the skirt. It is named after the Tokyo Police Club song of the same name. I remember seeing the video on television a long time ago in 2008 and the line “broken hearts tessellate tonight” stuck with me.

As always, you’re so stylish! I don’t think I could ever style myself like you do 😆 I love your shirt and skirt! Your jewelleries all go well together, as usual, and that Helene bracelet beautifully complements your outfit. It’s interesting that you didn’t like it much at first, but it grew on you, and especially with this outfit!

Gorgeous, Georgie! 😊 Can’t wait for your next Fashion Friday!

I am glad I grew to love the bracelet. I guess I just went off first impressions and didn’t wear it that much so it wasn’t the most informed decision. I am actually really happy with it! 🙂

I enjoy Fashion Friday and how stylish you are~! Nick is a great photographer, I can say that too. The scenery is beautiful as well.

Thanks Michelle! It is a bit different from the usual nature-like locations we use, but we made it work. 😄

Nick is an awesome photographer and you’re an awesome fashionista~

I really like your outfit, how the long coat goes really well with the flared skirt. Flared skirts and dresses are awesome. The under the collar necklace goes well with your top. It shows a hint of elegance because you’re not trying to “show off” the piece, but have it compliment the outfit nicely. Sometimes, it takes time and a bit of wearing to love the jewelry!

I guess that is the thing with subscription boxes – the items inside are usually surprises so you don’t know if you will like them or not. I didn’t like this bracelet at first but I am glad that I now do. 🙂

That bracelet is divine, Georgie! You look lovely. I wish I had the hips to pull off a skirt like that. But, I am in love with that Basque shirt… I’m feeling an online shopping session coming on for me. I hope they deliver here!!

Thanks Rebecca! Basque is a Myer-exclusive brand and I am not sure if they will ship outside of Australia, but here’s hoping you can get your hands on a similar top! 😄

I don’t know how you put together outfits like this, and so well too! I just roll out of bed and slap on a tee and pants. I always say I’ll get really dressed up but, for the most part, I’m too lazy and just can’t be fussed 😆;;

Here is a (not really) secret, I used to just get out of bed and put on a skirt or jeans, sometimes wearing the same shirt I actually wore to bed. Some of my t-shirts serve as pyjamas. :/ I am not sure when I stopped but somewhere along the line I found that putting a little more effort into how I dress helps me feel a bit more refreshed in the mornings. 🙂

I used to take way too long putting my outfit together because I kept thinking hazardous things like the notion of ‘outfit repeating’, the fact that I had not worn an item of clothing in a ‘while’, and just being afraid of wearing the same colours or pieces again. Once I got over that it was much easier to pick something out and be happy with how I looked in the first outfit I picked, without changing into something else.
