New Guest Blog – Winter Fashion Finds with Down Girl!

Lizzy Wilson, aka Down Girl joins us again this week on the Guest Blog!  Ain’t she the cutest with her fuzzy eskimo coat on in Japan last year?!  I can think of no-one more qualified to share advice on looking CUTE yet keeping WARM in the wintertime.

If this sudden snap of wintery weather has you scratching your head with wardrobe conundrums every morning before work, DON’T DESPAIR!  Our dearest Lizzy Wilson (aka fashion-forward, stocking-wearing, pom-pom-loving ‘Down Girl‘) has graced our Guest Blog once before… but due to popular demand she is BACK today with a whole week of wintery fashion finds!

WE REALLY MUST give Down Girl our undivided attention this week because you would not BELIEVE the efforts she has gone to in the name of wintery fashion education.  Ms Lizzy has spent a whole week sourcing the cutest scarves, beanies, coats, capes, gumboots and MORE… then went to all the trouble of borrowing these gorgeous items from various Melbourne retailers, before styling and photographing her very own little fashion spreads, especially for us!  WOWSERS!  That’s what I call above and beyond the call of duty!  This labour of love was not only time consuming – it was also a somewhat expensive exercise…. rumour has it Ms Lizzy is now sporting OKOK stockings in 3 new colours!

DO make sure you pop over to visit Down Girl on the Guest Blog all this week for all her wintery fashion finds!  She’s kicking things off today with a very important winter necessity – shoes, socks and stockings!   Thank GOD for that.  I, for one, will be taking notes!
