Orange to brighten the winter

Orange is starting to show up in the collections overseas so I went looking for it here in the shops and on Trademe.

From The Glamourai to Portmans

For a while now I have been following a fellow fashion blogger called The Glamourai and yesterday I saw that she had partnered with Portmans to model some of their latest range. I have chosen the outfit I covet the most and you can go to the Portmans website to find the individual garments. Then I have found garments on Trademe to recreate a version of the outfit. Recreating it exactly would be impossible but the idea is the same. Here we go.

Find the garments at these links: Jacket, Top, Scarf, Pants, Shoes.

As a bonus I have put together one of the other looks that Kelly Framel from The Glamourai wore. This comes in a close second.

Tangerine Milkshake & Touches of Pink

What do you think of these outfits? I put them together in an online programme where you have the model in underwear and a million different garments and accessories to choose from to dress her in. This is so much fun – just like when I was a child and dressed paper dolls. The items are all listed on the finished photos but I don’t think you can see them. This a great idea for working out looks you like and then you can go find the items to make up the outfits. Check it out here.

I have found this wonderful website where you can create looks like the one above and which then itemises the various elements with their prices. Some of the items I chose are not actually that bad in price even after the conversion. That was fun – I will have to do it again.
