STYLE PAWS X GHD

Vintage hair inspiration and tutorials by Style Paws for GHD

As a person with dead straight hair, I’ve never really considered a ghd styler/straightener in my regime before. However after being invited to check out ghd’s new Hairstyle Inspiration section on their website, I realised I have definitely been missing out!

So with the help of my amazing friend Amy, we decided we would share with you a couple of our favourite vintage-inspired hair dos, both which utilise our new BFF the ghd. I was lucky enough to receive this bad boy in my favourite pastel mint shade, which really does make it the most fashionable of accessories! As you’re about to see, Amy and I are by no means hair experts – but believe me, these are fun and super easy ‘dos that will have you feeling a little bit Priscilla Presley in no time.

I recently started a new job and with it came the sudden realisation that absolutely nothing I owned was suitable for the work environment. Slight exaggeration. However having previously worked in the world’s most casual studio, it was a pleasant surprise to realise that some casual pieces can really translate well into Office Mode. Did this stop me from rushing out to Zara and Witchery et al for “emergency supplies”? Of course not! I’m never going to turn down an excuse to shop…

Anyway, that little anecdote has little to do with this outfit post, but it does explain my lengthy blog absence (I’ve been shopping this whole time, duh). I did manage to make it to the opening of H&M’s new Melbourne store this week at GPO, where I simultaneously managed to lose both my shit and a sickening amount of cash on cheap thrills.

AW14 WISHLIST.

Melbourne is currently showing no signs of turning the heaters down anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean I’m not dreaming about what I’d be wearing in the cool dusk of an Autumn day. In New York City. If I was a millionaire. And maybe blonde. Scandinavian even? Actually, this outfit itself is extremely affordable and I’m a firm believer in splurging on the important things – accessories! I am very excited to be embarking on a new journey in my career soon and I maaay be rewarding myself with something that I’ve been coveting for years – watch this space!

YOU MAKE ME BLUSH.

Typical. As the weather heats up here, my attention has naturally shifted to dressing for winter. Currently obsessing over pastel and blush shades of pink. They’re the perfect – and I hate using this word – “feminine” accent for girls who like to dress in a lot of black, grey and white. Is that first outfit not the most perfect? I want that coat bad. Also, besides white, this is my favourite colour for flowers. Pfft.. when did I get so girly?

HELLO SUMMER.

If I was to describe how I’d like my summer to look in an outfit – this would be it. A little bit earthy and flowy with classic elements borrowed from Saint Laurent and a really easy, comfortable silhouette. I am all about the comfort factor. I know you can’t predict the future, but I really feel if I was wearing this outfit, it might be the best summer ever.
