I spent a lovely, lovely morning at 360 Degrees on Boundary St this weekend, falling in love left right and centre with the beautiful items in abundance on its racks. I do so adore this store. Pieces are thoughtfully selected and are often extremely unique – this shop is the epitome of boutique shopping – so much so it almost feels bespoke.

All of our looks below are currently available in store and just between you and me, I was lucky enough to get a preview of the pieces coming in for Spring and I just CANNOT wait to bring those to your attention when the warmer weather creeps through just around the corner….

Look 1; leather look

I spotted these pants and freaked; they are SO rock chick yet really feminine; I love the added softness of the quilted detailing on them. They were uber comfortable and one of the few pairs of pants with a drop crotch that I would feel comfortable (while still girly enough) wearing – the gold detailing with the zip pockets means they can be paired by anything big, black, blingy and gold you might have.

While I do think the pants are the star of this look – this top should not be dismissed too quickly! The black line detailing on it means it is the perfect complement to the leather pants – it kind of ties this look together without looking too matchy-matchy. The neckline is also very flattering.

Look 2; Playing in Chiffon

The second look we threw on was this stunning Nouvelle Playsuit. The chiffon material means it is light as a feather and the colour mixing is just so unique – you’ll never have to worry about looking like the person next to you in this little number!

We chose to belt it to create a bit of a waist but can easily be worn without. 360 Degrees also stocks a shirt version in the same print.

Look 3; hole lotta skirt

What can I say about this skirt to justify my love for it…  I  have honestly never seen a piece quite like this and  was instantly drawn to its monochrome colour and leather cut-out texture. The cut and shape of this skirt is incredibly flattering – it accentuates the hip line and the waist and the split on the leg makes it all the more desirable. We paired this with a gorgeous silk teal camisole but think any bright colour will do (give orange a go!)

Look 4; Like a Mermaid

And we’ve saved the best for last.

Words cannot quite explain how much I wish this skirt was currently hanging in my wardrobe. I am still lusting after it over 24 hours later with no signs of letting up. Sequined and shapely and swishy in just the right place– this is any girl’s dream skirt. This is the kind of piece you keep forever and to those of you lucky enough to snap it up I will forever be jealous!

This white sheet blouse had the same gold sequinned trimming on the shoulders – an outfit from another world – all in league of its own.

Happy shopping 4101ers!
