If one solid gold ring is good, then five has got to be better right? When it comes to our finger bling we're of the mind that more is more. Multiple rings per hand — be they finely stacked at different heights or thick bands worn on every digit — we're all for it. If you're still not too sure about the double-up look may we suggest starting with a collection of simple, minimal bands in either gold or silver. Best bit is these clusters are sold as sets so you don't need to multiply your budget to buy into the trend. Our favourite five stacks under $25 are waiting for you inside. . .
The first day of Winter is upon us! We're celebrating the start of June by rounding up this month's must-have items — guaranteed to put a spring in your step, even when the days are grey. Keep warm in a tongue-in-cheek hoodie, skip over puddles in high-shine heels (because patent leather = waterproof!), don a tartan kilt to twirl away those passing showers and last but not least, add at least one party frock to cart — because it's never too early to start dreaming of Summer soirées. Ready, steady. . . shop!

Denim may be the modern girl's unofficial uniform, but that doesn't mean you can get complacent about how you style up your trusty jeans. By putting just a little thought into how you wear your jeans, you can transform this wardrobe workhorse into a star player. Be it your classic indigo skinniness or this season's new lo-slungs — any pair will benefit from our what-to-wear-it-with guide. Think of the following as your cheat sheet to getting the most out of your denim wadrobe. Blue jean baby, coming right up!
I've never been a big spender when it comes to clothing. Don't get me wrong — I love it all and tear through fashion magazines and websites like it's nobody's business. But I like to have fun with my style without blowing the budget. I don't have a clear-cut aesthetic that I stick to — some days I'll go for a more feminine look with a floral dress and heels, others I'll go edgy with an all-black look. I really dress for my moods, but overall you could describe my style as girlie, simple and light-hearted. Chain-stores allow me to try new looks, colours, prints and trends, and I like letting my style evolve that way. Once I've found a look I love, I'll then invest in some quality pieces to make it a long-term reality in my wardrobe.
Since my clothes are so varied, it's pretty essential for me to have a range of jewellery that can complement any outfit — I find that the latest PANDORA collection really nails that side of things for me. Whether it's thin, intricate silver rings that stack like a dream, pretty pendants or beautiful watches, classic jewellery is the one thing I splash out on, because it's so timeless. Want to see what I'm on the hunt for now? Let me show you. . .

Kapow! Bang! Wowee! If you're feeling it, why not express it via a slogan sweater? Phillip Lim touched on the trend in his 2013 Fall show, while House of Holland's Henry Holland has always been a fan of a bold statement, this season declaring Viva La Vibe! on varsity-style jumpers teamed with tea-length skirts.
