  • Pooja's Party Fashion Guide

    by Pooja | Feb 14, 2014

    Hi TGs!

    Every girl wants to make a statement at a party. Well, here are some ideas of how to make your outfit really memorable.

    My closet is mostly made up of contrast. I love how you can give something a totally new look by pairing it up with something that would normally be considered entirely different.

    This blue dress paired up with a bright yellow belt is a great example of contrast. Something like this would probably be a great idea for your friend's b'day party!

    Summer fashion ideas for girls.

    You can never go wrong with a pair of skinny jeans and a classy top. If you're not that into dresses, this combo is definitely a go for a party.

    I hope you like my party outfit style ideas!

  • Meet Fashion Blogger Emily Jane!

    by Lattitia | Feb 06, 2014

    TG LOVES fashion blogger Emily Jane!

    EJ’s one of our fave fashionistas and you’ll soon see why…

    Name: Emily Jane
    Age:
    15
    Blog:
    emilyjane.typepad.com

    Fashion blogger Emily Jane: Interview!


    Give us a little blog low-down..

    My blog 'Emily Jane' is a fashion and crafts blog, aimed at young teen girls. I love to post about my favourite outfits, DIY tutorials and my day-to-day life. I just LOVE fashion and I always enjoy putting fashion posts together. I want to encourage other young girls to be themselves in everything they wear and do!

    What made you want to start blogging about fashion?
    My fashion sense was always different to what my friends at school wore. I wanted to find other girls who had a similar style to mine, so decided to start blogging about fashion and what I wore. I loved looking at other fashion and personal style blogs and I thought it looked so fun, so decided to give it a go. After about a year of fashion blogging, I have started to really find my own true style and love fashion so much!

    Where do you get your inspiration?
    I find my inspiration from magazines, fashion bloggers, the Internet and other girls out and about. I also love browsing around on Instagram to see how other people style certain pieces.

    What trends do you love right now?
    At the moment I am LOVING anything aqua, galaxy printed clothes, knit jumpers and flower crowns!

    Sum up your style in three words…
    Vintage, bohemian and eclectic!

    Fave shops?
    At the moment, my favourite brands are The Lost Girls, Casper & Pearl, Witchery 8Fourteen and Factorie. I also love looking in second hand stores for vintage pieces.

    Go to outfit?
    At the moment my go to outfit is a floral dress with a matching cardigan, frilly socks and some flat shoes. I might add on a brooch or wear a flower crown.

    Celeb style crush?
    I just love what Taylor Swift wears in the album, Red. Everything looks so vintage and I adore every single piece! I especially love what she wears in the video clip for 'Begin Again'. It is amazing!

    Dream job?
    When I am older, I definitely want to keep on going with my blog. I would also like to maybe have a fashion label one day or do some modelling! I also really love photography, so I'd love to do something to do with that too.

    Be sure to visit my blog next month for more on Emily Jane!

    Lots of love and style-spiration!

    Lattitia xoxo

  • Summer Fashion Inspiration: Tropical!

    by Lattitia | 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.

    Love and leis,

  • The Onesie-derful Trend

    by Tish | 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?

    Love L xoxo

  • Onstyling an Outfit

    by Lattitia | 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 to totalgirl@pacificmags.com.au.

    Lots of love,
    Lattitia

  • My Fave Celeb Fashion

    by Lattitia | Aug 02, 2013
    Hit or miss? I rate these celeb outfits!

    TG’s style-savvy celebs are put to the ultimate fashion test! 

    Debby Ryan 6/10

    Debby Ryan! Photo: Facebook

    A cute printed dress will be the must-have item this spring, but I feel this dress lacks the ‘wow’ factor. Bright sandals and a coloured print would add instant zing! Debby scores extra points for accessorising her outfit with a cute pooch! 

    Bridgit Mendler 9/10

    Bridgit Mendler. Photo: Facebook

    This pop princess definitely knows how to work the rock look, with this get-up cementing her fashion royalty status. Her adorbs red shorts pop, while the denim shirt balances out the look. Pop perfection!

    Victoria Justice 8.5/10

    Dreaming of summer? Me too! This tee and sunglasses combo just oozes sun and fun! Find VJ’s cool interchangeable sunnies at kameleonz.com.

    Swifty nails the classic lady look every time. For instant chic, try wearing stripes like Tay.

  • Travel Packing Rules

    by Lattitia | May 28, 2013
    Hi TG fashionistas!

    Guess what? I'm leaving for Europe today!! Ekk! I'm so excited that I want to let out a big squeeeeeeal! On the weekend I bought some new Converse kicks ready to pound the pavements of Italy! They're super comfortable and go with all my travel outfits! 

    Feeling comfortable is almost as important as your passport, so my number one tip for packing is to include comfortable shoes and clothes! See below for my top handy hints for stress-free packing

    Will miss you while I'm away!

    Love Lattitia xox

    1. Start by writing out a list. Tick off each item as you pack for instant satisfaction.
    2. Roll up T-shirts, skirts and dresses. It's a space saver, plus your clothes will stay wrinkle free!
    3. Always pack cool and warm outfit options in case of a weather change.
    4. Keep a few spare empty bags for wet or dirty clothes. It really helps to keep the dirty clothes from making your travel bag smell.
    5. Pack a tote or backpack - they're the perfect multi-use bag for the beach or sightseeing.
    6. Take extra space, meaning don't stuff your suitcase. That way you'll have room for goodies you may acquire during your travels.
    7. Use your socks to wrap up valuable items like your camera, iPod or accessories (make sure they're clean. LOL).
    8. Snacks are essential for long journeys and in case you don't like the local food.
    9. Always pack sneakers and thongs. Holidays + walking + sensible shoes = comfort.
    10. You'd be insane not to pack yourself stack of TG mags to read in the car or plane!
    11. Be mind full when packing, meaning if you're only going for a weekend, pack for weekend, not a week!

  • Tee-terrific!

    by Lattitia | May 29, 2013
    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.

    Lots of love!

    Lattitia

    Awesome jumpers!

  • Pretty in pink!

    by Lattitia | May 29, 2013
    Hey fashionistas!

    I heart all things sugary n' sweet, especially when it comes to fashion! So, I was tickled pink to learn that pretty shades of pink and pastels are the colours of autumn!

    This month we got sugared up with extra juicy styles in TG's Pink Lemonade fashion shoot and here's your exclusive sneak peak of what went on behind the scenes! As you can see our model is totes gorgeous and I became friends with a little butterfly!

    TG was lucky enough to shoot at May Gibbs' Nutcote, located in Sydney's Neutral Bay and geez was it the perfect backdrop! You can almost smell the fresh hydrangeas just by looking at them! If you're a Sydney fashionista, be sure to pay Nutcote a visit!

    To check out the full shoot, head to the glam section of the latest Total Girl mag! Can't wait to hear which shot's your fave!

    Have an AMAZING weekend!

    Lots of love and lemonade,

    Lattitia xoxoxox


    Who wouldn't want to be invited to this Pink Lemonade party?
