Style Me Sportsgirl ♥

This is just a quick sticks blog post about this lovely little thing that happened to me today!

I love Thursdays because I finish my classes at 12:30pm and I have the whole day ahead of me to do whatever I like. So with the whole afternoon free, I headed off to Sportsgirl in Bourke St, in Melbourne's CBD, because a few days ago I found out they had released some new lipstick shades, and as you may remember from this post, I LOVE their lippies!

But after wandering over to the beauty table to check out the new range, I was approached by one of the store assistants, who asked me if I would like to try on the upcoming Sportsgirl collection for September.


Turns out there was an event going on today, and I had just walked in the store without even noticing! There was a photobooth for girls to try on the new Sportsgirl range and have their photo taken, and some lucky ones will even have their photos in the next issue of the Sportsgirl mag! And I love that magazine, it's plastered all over my walls haha.

So I was whisked away and met the lovely head stylist Matty and was given a saffron-red peplum top and loose print-panelled pants to try on, along with a chunky statement necklace and a leather cuff. I felt like a celeb having all these clothes picked for me!

Here are the shots, sorry I look a little awkward haha! It's the pants, they make it look like I have a Kardashian booty, but mine is actually very small hahaha

I love the colour of the peplum, and have been wanting to try this trend for a while, and I think it's so cute! I'd pair it with skinny black pants or a contrasting coloured pair of leggings. The pants I was given were a size too big, so I look a bit Aladdin/Hippy haha. But if they were tapered like the ones below, and the right size, they'd look perfect!

I wish I could show you the clothes individually, but they're not in stores yet as today was a collection preview, but these are pretty close:

Would you try any of these trends - Peplums, printed pants, statement accessories? Let me know in the comments!

And if anyone was wondering, after all that I did still buy a lippy :) It's Sportsgirl's Pout About It in the shade 'Fashion Addict'. It's a smooth hot pink colour with a bit of shimmer, and it looks way more natural on that it does on the bullet haha

It even brings out the pink in my cheeks :)
