The Print Revolution

Here comes the print revolution. Sportsgirl have created unique prints for certain pieces to be released throughout the spring/summer season. Here I'm wearing the marble printed tunic which arrived earlier in August. I love the mix of colours in this kind of kaleidoscope print, with a split side seam and asymmetrical hem.

A few weeks ago I bought this hot pink lipstick, shade 20 from Kate Moss for Rimmel London. Those of you who read my posts would know, I don't think any outfit is complete without a bold coloured lipstick.

 Each of the items have a print revolution tag attached which reads..

 "Directional and imaginative, this premium collection of prints was designed exclusively for Sportsgirl. Bespoke pieces as playful and as creative as you are"

The Stylish Sportsgirls

Relating to my last post about the Sportsgirl Spring Summer '12 Preview, here are the outfits my lovely girls from Knox wore that night.

Casey - wore tali peplum top, red shorts, hayley bead stud necklace and neon sandals from Forever New

Hannah - wore exotica shift dress, denim jacket and fashion block boot

Bec - wore scarf print shirt, pixie legging, major link necklace and fuchsia heels

Stefania - wore metallic slinky tank, simple segmented necklace and leather leggings from Lolitta.

Lastly, here's the dress I wore for the preview (I mentioned how much I loved this dress in my recent August Lookbook post)

So I have some exciting and also sad news, this was my last week at the Knox store! After almost two years with these wonderful ladies, I'm moving on to the big wide world of Chadstone. I want to dedicate this post to these amazing girls, I truly love each of them so much and each day they have inspired me.

My favourite piece is definitely the first dress from exotica girl, the scarf print shift. You know I love ethnic prints and this shift style is so easy to wear. It arrived in stores and online on Friday! You'll most likely see me wear it in the next couple of weeks.
