pretty in pink feat. Trade Secret.


When Trade Secret pitched the idea of a collaboration the answer was a no brainer for the shopaholic bargain hunter in me.

The appeal of the Trade Secret brand is in their savings promise. They work directly with designers (both local and international) to deliver current season ranges at up to 60% off retail price. 
I set about putting together a look and before long the brilliant hue of the BCBGeneration dress caught my eye- not to mention the flouncy, frilly hemline makes it very fun to wear!
I’ve mentioned before that one of my style rules is to ‘keep it simple’ and the London Fog handbag was the perfect compliment to the dress with its classic shape and versatility, while the scarf lends some on trend leopard print to finish off the look.
And so a designer handbag, dress and scarf for less than $125? I say: Trade Secret, deliver on your promise you do!

    Don't be so modest, you're stunning in pink! & your tan has me missing the warmth of the summer sun! Wonderfully styled my dear. That silhouette fits you well ;D

    Thank you Christel! The scarf will come in handy once it starts getting cooler here in Australia, looking forward to styling more outfits with it 🙂 Also, I checked out your blog and love that you're from Holland! Amsterdam is one of my favourite places I've travelled to, such a pretty city 🙂

    I am on my feet walking a lot at work up and down stairs and just standing in offices and at the end of the day I am in no rush to take these bad boys off.
