It's time again to show you my latest dress from OASAP. It's the Lush Lace Short Sleve Chiffon Dress in lavender. As soon as I saw this dress on the website I knew it would be exactly what I'd spend my credit on. I was drawn to the pretty lilac colour. I don't have much purple in my wardrobe, despite it being one of my favourite colours, so it is a lovely addition. Lilac dresses are so girly and remind me of princesses and fairytales. I adore the fit and structure of the dress which is a very important element. I love the subtle pattern, the flower rosette, the flowy skirt and the tulle underskirt. I'm very happy with this dress; it's definitely one of my favourites from OASAP and one of the best dresses I received from online. Now I want to get it in white or peach too. I often do this when I find an OASAP treasure, most notably the Retro Embroidered Pearl Diamond Lattice like Handbag which I have in both red and white. I wore this dress both on the weekend and also to work yesterday and I received so many compliments; it's definitely one of my more popular looks. I find it really interesting which looks of mine are popular; it's so hard to predict. Sometimes I like the excessively bright looks when often it's a more simple elegant dress that others compliment me on the most.

Today I'm excited to share with you my current favourite dress and the most adorable, beautiful and sweet print in the whole entire world! Kitty cats in a movie theatre...it doesn't come any cuter than that. If you look closely at the print you'll notice that some of the cats are eating popcorn, others have little handbags, a few are enjoying fish snacks, many are knitting and some are even hiding or covering their eyes because the movie is too scary. I just want to reach out and give those kitty cats a big hug. As a cat lover, there couldn't possibly be a more perfect dress for me. I'd actually been searching for a cat print dress for well over a year so, with the addition of the extra adorable factor, I was very happy to find this one. The experience introduced me to the brand Retrolicious which has many other lovely dresses. I may have just experienced similar success with my incredibly lengthy search for the perfect unicorn dress; there will be more on that later. I look forward to wearing this dress on multiple occassions because it truly is the best ever. The obvious choice was to pair it with my kitty cat flats. Double cat print? Yes please! Both my cat flats and the cardigan I'm wearing in this post are pieces I wear frequently but haven't posted on my blog before. Of all my Alannah Hill cardigans, this one is quite possibly my favourite. The detailing is exquiite and incredibly sparkly. I love how all the buttons and the beads are different designs. It's such a stand out collar. My 'From Paris with Love' bag from Forever New is making yet another appearance on my blog; it's been such a realiable and versatile bag.

Hi everyone! Today I have some very exciting news to share. My dear friend and fellow Australian blogger Jacqui from Fashion Pho,  who has recently started the clothing label Pho Sizzle Threads, named one of her first pieces after me. This is my namesake skirt, the Imogen Skirt. This is such an honour and I couldn't be happier. It feels like a fashion bloggers dream to have this piece named after me. I love how the Imogen Skirt accurately represents me. The blue trim against the gorgeous purple shade is exquisite and a genius combination. I haven't seen these colours together particularly frequently but it certainly works extremely well. Despite purple being one of my favourite colours, I don't have too many purple pieces so this is a very welcomed addition to my wardrobe. It goes without saying that the heart shaped pocket is my favourite part. I'm completely obsessed with heart print and I can't get enough of it. The pocket is such a sweet, pretty and fun addition to the look. I'm also super impressed by the quality and overall fit of the Imogen Skirt. It's the perfect skirt. I adore Jacqui's style and she has translated it flawlessly into her designs. They are all so fun, unique, versatile, creative and beautiful. I admire her for following her dream and making this boutique a reality. Check out the Imogen Skirt here.

Style Inspiration

Elle Fanning's look at the Miu Miu fashion show during Paris Fashion Week is quite literally the most stunning, beautiful, perfect and incredible outfit I have ever seen. I love it more than words could explain. She's also the prettiest girl ever!

Inspired by this amazing look and the fact that it's the Easter weekend, I decided to show you some of my favourite pastel coloured pieces. I'm loving these shades and I look forward to wearing pale colours this weekend. How adorable are the bunny rabbit flats? I wish they weren't sold out because I seriously need them in my life.

 Today I wanted to show you my new pocket watch necklace which I received courtesy of Born Pretty Store. I'm really happy with it; the design is adorable, the quality is great and it's even functional too. I'll definitely get a lot of use from it. I definitely recommend checking out the website. You can find the Classical Bronze Pocket Watch Chain Link Heart Shaped Watch here. They have a great variety of products such as wrist watches, bracelet watches and iPhone 5 cases. Thanks Born Pretty. To receive 10% off enter the code IMONC10.

I've seen a myriad of discussion by bloggers in recent times about enjoying the small aspects of life; it seems that so many people are attempting to focus on appreciating the little things. That's great. For me, one of the greatest small pleasures in life is rediscovering an outfit which I haven't worn in a long time. It's almost as exciting as purchasing a new outfit and it's a small highlight to a day. I'd like to become better at utilising and appreciating my current wardrobe rather than purchasing new things I don't need all the time. However, I have said that millions of times and failed on every occassion. I posted this outfit a few years ago in the earlier days of my blog but I'm not too sure how many of you would remember it. I love the tulle style skirt and, given the recent popularity of tulle skirts, it's an even more appropriate time to start wearing it again. It reminds me of a ballerina or a princess. I like to think the top adds a dimension to the girly nature of this look. I was lucky with the shoes since they are such a perfect match; these have been one of my favourite pairs of shoes for many years now. I can't get enough of my unicorn bag. I love how it's sparkly and glittery. It's pretty much the most amazing bag ever and I'm so happy it's mine! Contrary to what I wrote previously about making the most out of existing clothes, my green coat is fairly new. It's the 'Her Tower Crumbled Coat' from Alannah Hill and I couldn't resist the amazing sale on coats earlier in the year. The polka dot lining is a real feature and I just love how I can turn out the sleeves to show that detailing. I love green lately and I was drawn to this beautiful jewel tone. The collarless design is different from my other coats too.

RED Valentino 2014 Spring/Summer Pre Collection

The RED Valentino 2014 Spring/Summer Pre Collection is my absolute favourite at the moment. It is incredibly beautiful, elegant, classic and romantic, and I adore the youthful fun vibe. The patterns are super stunning as is the embroidery and detailing. The tulle skirts and fit and flare dresses remind me of beautiful ballerinas. or a romantic fairtytale The headbands and flats are adorable additions to the incredible outfits. The combination of pretty peplum tops layered over the cropped pants is not my usual style but here I believe they are completely stunning. I'm especially in love with the sweetly patterned dresses and coats and the tulle skirts. I can't speak highly enough of this collection. It is perfect.
