Westfield: Own Your Story – Black and Leather Kinda Weather

I’m back – and in all black, baby. Don’t be too fooled by some of my recent social posts – although I’ve been embracing a lot of colour lately, here in Melbourne – and in the heart of winter – we wear black. Or leather. Or both. And lots of it. It’s the signature city palette and fail safe go-to attire because when it’s cold, it’s hella cold. But when the sun comes out it’ll have you forgetting what season it was.

Lately the weather has been pretty nasty, hence my lack of street shot looks – and to keep the chills at bay I turn to everyone’s favourite – the leather biker jacket. But without compromising femininity and a shapely silhouette (you know I like to maintain a level of sexiness), I love to style it with something form-fitting. And when it’s extra chilly, I love the warmth of a knitted sweater with that rockin’ biker sitting chic-ly on top. Draped over the shoulders, of course. Because if you can last a whole day without the jacket falling off your shoulders – then you’ve made it through the day! Then slip into some high-heeled, peep-toe boots and you’re ready to brave the cold minus the Eskimo effect.

For this look, and for my high winter #ownyourstory feature – I’ve done exactly that. Just because it’s winter, doesn’t mean you can’t show off that figure while maintaining your core temperature. Here I’ve pulled together a chic, winter-friendly but bangin’ outfit perfect for day to dinner. Where else but Westfield would I find something so easy and pocket-friendly (or bank breaking depending on your taste and bank situation)? Shop online in the comfort of your heated pad and PJ’s or in store – there’s no denying you’ll find what you need/want (same thing) to survive the winter. Here I’ve handpicked and styled some of the latest from Sheike at Westfield including this gold hardware adorned, pebbled leather biker, snuggly turtleneck cropped sweater and high-waisted skirt with adjustable waist tie that cinches in my winter waistline so cleverly… The boots are a classic from Wanted Shoes, also available at Westfield.

    Wow you look beyond stunning! I love this all black look. It is very sleek and sexy at the same time. I like that you mixed textures like the wool with the leather. Not only that, but I also love the details like the belt on your skirt and your amazing lipstick. You look so fierce its insane. Great look cant wait to see more from you!

    Micah !!! Wow you look so great! I would like to repeat your look )))) By the way what the name of gorgeous red lipstick on you? Best regards, Mila

    Thanks for blocking me for no reason either way I just wanted to get my final say in. I’m not going to go back and forth with you I know we both have are too busy for this, just know that I’m not a hater and treating my like one was rude Honey. I am aware that your shoes are expensive “Balmains” But for the outfits you post it would be good to see other shoes since you have posted these a lot. I just kept it short and simple. Not once did I say anything condescendingly and neither was I jumping to conclusions, Unlike you. Nobody likes a Diva Micah and I never sought you out to be one. I can’t believe that you were rude to me and then deleted the proof so that your followers couldn’t see and like a coward blocked me just because you were afraid of my civilized and educated answers.
