Comfortable and fashionable shoes for walking around NY in?
Ok I know this is such a biased answer, but I’ve been walking in these daily for the past month, and I can tell you that they’re like walking on clouds. I have them in black, but they come in a bajillion other colours too, so take a look! And if you don’t like them, let me know and I’ll do another hunt for you :) x
Hi! Love your blog. I have a few questions: 1. I'm a little scared to make my blog public- and people to find out about it and make fun of it but at the same time it would be great to be recognised for my own work. What's your advice on this. Should I just tell my friends about it or whatever? I'm scared to put my face and name on my blog... 2. What's the link to the sportsgirl leather fringe dress? 3. How do you afford all those gorgeous clothes??
Hey! So glad you love the blog. If you’re uncomfortable with the people you know seeing your blog, I honestly don’t see a problem with keeping it on the down low. That’s the beauty of the internet - it’s a whole new audience of people who are actually looking for the things you’re writing about. If they find out about it, that’s their issue and whether they like it not isn’t what you should be thinking about! If fashion and blogging is something you’d really like to get into, then go for it and you’ll find your niche corner of readers (or they’ll find you, rather) over time. When I started, I didn’t find the need to publicise it, but if people asked me about it, I didn’t go to any effort to hide it either. Hope that’s helpful, and definitely shoot me an email at margaret(at)shinebythree(dot)com if you have any more Qs! I can’t find the Sportsgirl leather fringe dress online right now, but this and this are all kind of similar. As for my wardrobe, I have a pretty good knack of recycling clothes, altering, wearing upside-down, trading with friends, selling at Shop By Three then buying new things. I’m also lucky enough to shoot a lot of stunning samples by some of my favourite designers. Happy Monday! xx
I have a formal coming up and I want to get my make up and hair done by a professional. Could you recommend any places? Preferably in the cbd area :) Thanks!! And keep up with the great blog x
I’ve had my hair done a few times by Amy Taylor - she’s really amazing with specific styles, the smaller details, etc. Definitely get in touch with her and see! Otherwise, Oscar Oscar salon on Oxford St has really talented artists too :) Hope that’s helpful!
Hi Margaret. I think you are a sublime human being and that you are so accomplished in life. I love your blog. I was just wondering how uni breaks work? When do they usually occur? Also, do you think that the sportsgirl fringe leather dress would be suitable for a yr 12 formal? Thank you so much and keep doing your thang :)
Hi! So glad you’re liking Shine By Three. There are two semesters per Uni year, and the break between the two goes for about 4-5 weeks in June-July. There are also mid-semester breaks that run for a week, and STUVAC (also a week) before exams. The end of year break is from November till April, so plenty of traveling time! The Sportsgirl dress is cute - and as long as you accessorise well, you could definitely pull it off xx
hey margaret :) great blog, i check it almost every day!! just curious, what are your thoughts on minnetonka moccasins (the 3 layer fringing boots)? contemplating whether i should buy them or not. thanks, xo
I think they’re super cute! I certainly couldn’t pull them off, but they’d look amazing with a tan leather dress or shorts :) x
Margaret! Please, if you have the time, i need your advice(: i came to you last year for shoe suggestions and now i've got my year 12 formal dress from Bec & Bridge but i can't find shoes to match and i'm having a lot difficulty in matching any shoes to my wonderful dress! The dress is blue and white, cloud like, short and tight called: saint-cloud-shift-d (sorry i would send you the link but tumblr doesn't allow it) (: thank you! xxxx
Hi lovely - of course - love that Bec&Bridge print. Here are a couple that would look amazing with it:
Hi lovely! I was wondering if you could give me some help? i am trying to find my year 12 formal dress, and i wanted a backless or low back dress either maxi or short, i don't mind. Would you be able to suggest any websites or stores or dresses that you really like and would have the style dress i am looking for? thank you so much for your help! xx
Hi miss - how exciting :) Year 12 formal days… good times. I just did a little hunt and here are a couple for you depending on what your personal style and price point is:
