 Baroque by indigo-belle-fashion

The baroque pattern is so versatile, I absolutely love when it's incorporated into clothing items. Unfortunately I don't own any clothes with this print, so I made this set as inspiration to go and find some items! Seeing that the print is so striking in itself, opt for minimal accessories and instead intensify the look with bold eyes and lips.

OPI Nail Look: Silver Shatter and Purple With A Purpose

Purple and silver work really well together, seeing that they both have lovely cool undertones. OPI Shatter is great because even though it's nice and simple to apply, the result mimics a detailed nail art look! The steps are as follows:
  • Apply two thick coats of 'Purple With A Purpose' (or any colour of your choice) and leave it to  dry.
  • To Ensure that the shatter gets even coverage, there is a three brushstroke process in applying it. First apply one stroke down the middle of the nail, and then paint an 'X' shape across the nail. So brush from the left bottom corner to the top right corner, and then brush from the bottom right corner to the top left corner.
  • Once this has almost dried, you can apply a top coat to give the nail a more smooth and even finish. For this I used OPI RapiDry Top Coat.
There you have it! I personally love the silver shatter because out of the ones I've used it has the nicest pigmentation whilst matching almost every colour. Have you tried a shatter nail polish before? :)

Hair Inspiration

We all have those days when we get bored of our hair style or colour, I think I'm having one of those days today, so I decided to share a few inspirational photos for ideas!

Personally I'm loving braids, ombre hair and floral hair pieces at the moment! All photos are taken from Pinterest (follow me here!)
Thank you all for being patient with my posting :) Once assignments slow down I'll be back to posting frequently! x

Autumn Makeup Look: Snowy eyes with a pop of colour

Autumn for me is all about that transition from sunny to cold days. That's why for this tutorial I decided to do a snowy eye with a warm touch of pink. The tutorial will focus mainly on the eye look, but at the end I will suggest a few ideas and colours for the rest of the face too :)

Monochromatic items have been huge this season, so I thought it was about time I did a post on this trend! As much as I love bright colours, it’s always nice to go back to basics.
Black and white is a classic and timeless combination that will forever look good. You can always brighten the look with bright eyes and lips, or statement accessories. Above I’ve compiled a selection of my favourite black and white items for inspiration :)

Jimmy Choo Spring Summer 13 Brochure


So I was browsing through my April issue of Vogue and came across an advertisement for Jimmy Choo's Spring/Summer 13 collection. The photo instantly caught my eye, and although there's no way I would ever be able to afford anything Jimmy Choo, I decided to check out the full brochure. It's safe to say I'm in love and I had to share it with you all. The colours are perfect, especially the purples and pinks. The photoshoot for the brochure has accurately portrayed the way a pop of colour can transform any simple or classic outfit. You can take a look at the brochure here, and shop the collection here :)
Here are a few of my favourite items from the collection...

Chanel Nail Polish Swatch: 'Suspicious'

I love Chanel's nail polishes because the packaging is so gorgeous, and the brush is quite thin which makes it easier to stay within the outline of the nail. In these photos the nail polish looks mostly red, but it actually has a beautiful hint of pink too :) Apologies for my slow posting lately! I've started back at uni now so I'll have to try and juggle assignments and my blog, but I'll do my best :)

BelleBook 17.03.13

Lately I've been seeing a lot of thigh-high socks around, and I've been desperate to pick up a pair for myself! I finally got this pair, and I can definitely say that I'm happy with my purchase. They're nice and warm, and they didn't slip once. I think thigh-high socks are a great alternative to stockings, especially because they tend to be thicker, and they're great for those warm days where there's a cool change at night. I can definitely see myself wearing these a lot in the future!
I kept the rest of my outfit quite simple, pairing a feminine top with high waisted shorts to play down the boyfriend style of the flannel shirt.

Apologies for the out of focus image for my eye, I had to use a different camera when taking these photos! Red, gold and blue were the colours of my eyeshadow that night, as I was attending an AFL match and thought I'd show a little extra support for my team haha!
