  • Summer Fashion Inspiration: Tropical!

    by | Nov 22, 2013

    Picture this: vintage beach shacks, pineapple shakes served in coconut shells and retro tunes belting out of the radio.

    Sounds pretty amazing huh?

    Seed’s new summer collection aims to whisk you away on a tropical island adventure and with bursts of tropical colours and cool silhouettes you will no doubt be transported to a colourful beachside scene.

    Seed Girls' Tropical Fashion

    Fun prints and eye-popping patterns mark the beginning of Seed’s summertime escapade. Slouchy styles reemerge in refreshing hues – this time decorated with studs, sequins, and stones for added chic. Fruity patterns have also squeezed their way on to a few tees or two.

    Seed Girls' Tropical Fashion


    So, TGs, inject a little tropicana into your wardrobe and take a trip to Seed island paradise! Visit seedheritage.com.

  • The Onesie-derful Trend

    by | Nov 13, 2013
    I’ve got one word to say to you this week – onesies!

    Justin Biebs and One Direction wear them, they’re the most comfortable invention since the beanbag and are totes cute to boot!

    Yes it’s summer, but don’t let the warmer weather deter you! It just means you won’t need to sleep with a sheet on therefore you can sleep anywhere…anytime!!


    Next have the best range I’ve seen thus far and my personal fave is the adorbs panda! The problem is, you won’t want just onesie, you’ll want twosies and threesies and before you know it you’ll have a whole zoo of animal onesies!!


    Check out the whole collection at au.nextdirect.com

    Which one do you want on your Christmas wish list?

  • Onstyling an Outfit

    by | Sep 24, 2013

    Hi TGs

    Umming and ahhing about how to put your ensemble together? Here’s some quick tips on how to get it right!

    Lattitia's tips: how to pull an outfit together

     

    1. Always choose one hero, standout piece. This will be the focal point of your outfit, so basically everyone’s eyes should zoom into this piece as though it were Harry Styles! LOL!
    2. Balance out your hero piece with some smart chic basics like a denim button up, white tank or jeans.
    3. Use accessories and shoes to tie in a common colour from your hero piece to ensure your outfit flows. You don’t want to look too matchy matchy, so a when in doubt opt for a block colour, like this cute Bardot Junior heart clutch.
    4. Comfort comes first – always!
    5. If your outfit lacks punch, try a new flashy hairdo. A loose braid with some flowers in it is my spring go-to.

    Hope this helps! Be sure to send in some snaps of your styled outfits.

    Ok, so we know Target always delivers the goods, but this week, I spotted the coolest tees and jumpers that I just had to share with you! Target have really outdone themselves this time (kinda how 1D just get more and more ah-mazing!).

    With punchy colours and standout graphics, they're guaranteed to brighten up a dull winter day and keep you snuggly warm

    And just between you and I, I mean this is TOP secret, some days I just can't be bothered glamming up so these gems are perfect for weekend lounging around the house, whilst still looking fashionable. What do you think?

    Prices start from $18 from all leading stores. Visit target.com.au to see more of their totes cool range.

    Hi lovely fashionistas!

    One of my favourite parts of the job is hearing from YOU and a totes fun way of collecting your thoughts is through theTrendsetter polls on this very site! Learning the results often helps me work out what kind of looks you dig, trends you heart and what you're all about!

    Last week we asked... What's your fave trend? And you voted...

    Tropical 36%
    Neon 35%
    Floral 17%
    Tie-Dye 12%

    Here are your fave trends fresh from the pages of TG! As you can see, each of these four trends work best with neutral colours or mixed with denim. 

    Now that you've voted, is your fave trend still your fave head-to-look? Would LOVE to hear from you TG fashionistas

    Lots of love and neon!
    xoxo

  • Jungle Fever

    by | May 29, 2013
    Hi lovely TGs!

    Pop on your safari hat and get ready ready to explore the stores for this season's wildest trend - jungle fever! Are you ready to walk on the wild side? I am! I heart this trend so much that half my wardrobe is made up of animal inspired pieces!

    spot of leopard print, animal graphics or a hint of khaki will spice up any plain outfit! There are no wrongs with this trend, you can mix n' match animal prints or go for a more basic look with a white tee and leopard print pants. If this trend is really sending creepy crawlies down your spine, try adding an animal print scalf or zebra ring, like this cool Gumboots ring, for a gradual introduction.

    Witchery 8Fourteen, Seed and Gumboots
     have some roaring numbers so be sure to check out their collections in stores! For more tips and style advice on this trend, be sure to check out the new issue of Total Girl. 

    Lots of love my lionesses!

  • TG's Nickelodeon Challenge: Find Your Special Niche

    by Kristy | Aug 25, 2015

    Hi guys! 


    So, as Mel already told you guys, we’re celebrating the release of the brand-new TV series from Nickelodeon, 100 Things To Do Before High School, by setting ourselves some fun challenges. Since I was second in line, I thought I would have it easy in the challenge department. BUT I WAS SOOO WRONG. My challenge was pretty hard – I had to work out what my niche was!!! OK, so like everyone is special and everyone has a talent, but I had to really dig deep. I was trying to find something out of the ordinary that I was especially good at! Aaagh!


    I decided to ask some friends, workmates and most importantly, my family. The first person interviewed was my dad, and it pretty much went like this.
     


    Kristy: Dad, what do you think I’m good at?


    Dad: You can make anyone laugh. Even the cat, and he doesn’t speak English! 


    My cat IS pretty smart. And I really do like to have fun and make people laugh. It feels good when people are laughing with me!


    At work, I asked TG’s Lisa what she thinks sets me apart from other fashion stylists. “Well, you know how to make everyone feel comfortable on the TG fashion shoots. You can make people laugh and style an amazing outfit,” she said.


    After hearing that I wanted to high five her a thousand times because I really do love having fun on shoots with you guys, it’s like the best part of my job! ALSO, I think I’m slowly working out what I’m good at.


    I just had to triple-check everyone’s idea of my niche so I asked my BFF Costa ­– she’s also pretty funny. I asked her what she thought made me different to all her other friends and she said “you make me laugh more and louder even though I’m the funnier friend.” Gosh, she is funny!


    I knew it! My niche is being able to make people laugh. I knew I was good at other things and I figured it out! #Winning.


    You guys can to – just make sure you ask the people who know you best!


    Love, KK

     

    FYI TGs, 100 Things to Do Before High School starts this Saturday, August 29th and will be on Nickelodeon every Saturday from 5pm!
