Last week I was fortunate enough to attend the launch of the Karrinyup SS14 Season and meet two of Australia’s hottest bloggers Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton of They All Hate Us. Elle and Tash took us through a styling session before a meet and greet and the Karrinyup SS14 parade. Click on for some of the top looks of the new season and a video post from the night.

As you may have seen in my Clarks Uncovered post, I met and chatted to Elle and Tash in front of a gorgeous flower installation by Centre Flowers.
I have followed and poured over the They All Hate Us blog for many years, often dragging images they have sourced on Tumblr into my ‘inspirations’ folder (which gets full rather quickly). I love the Australian style that they embody, complete with its easygoing nature with a hint of both rock and roll and elegance. Forever pairing an incredible designer shoe or bag with a simple denim short, jean, skirt or oversized mens shirt, the pair are spot on about mixing high end labels with chain store pieces. Elle explained she is often given perplexed looks when telling people that her Chanel is teamed with a $40 tee via General Pants. The friendship that the pair have is as enviable as those long legs, but I am happy to say they were completely lovely, approachable and funny too.
I am all about the wide leg trousers, culotte lengths, high collar shift dresses and stripes for the SS seasons to come, with Karrinyup stocking a lot to choose from for all different budgets and ages. I am a big fan of stores Veronika Maine, Witchery and Picnic who all have some great collections in store and arriving soon. I will do a ‘shopping’ post next week to share my finds to update yourself for the new season. I just wish this weather would lighten up!
Now for the video… don’t forget you can subscribe to Inspiring Wit TV on YouTube here. I have some great videos planned for the Fashion Festival and more. xx
