The gorgeous Allure Deluxe Drawer Chest by the amazing Howard Storage World, where I could happily deck out my entire apartment with. I have a smaller one of these for my ring collection, and even after a year it’s still shiny and sturdy, and I love being able to see what I have without rummaging through draws. Valued at $109
And last but not least, a personal styling consultation. Sometimes I get requests asking to do a personal styling session, but having a little girl makes it hard to be away so I’ve worked out a way to do a consultation via email. All I need is a few photos and I’ll do the rest of the work in advising you on the best shapes and silhouettes to suit your body shape. A little taste of areas covered in this post. Valued at $150

But, like with anything there are exceptions, and I think today’s fashion is a lot more expressive and individual and really, you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to.
This is how I see it.
A black bra can be incredible tacky if you:
Have pale skin where the bra will stand out like crazy
Are wearing a collared shirt at work
Dressed for a conservative/classy event like a wedding
Are wearing a beautiful white top that you want to highlight, but instead all people are seeing are your boobs.
The only times you CAN get away with wearing a black bra under a white top is:
If you have dark skin and there are no flesh coloured bras that match your skin.
When your top is so sheer that you can see skin and a black bra can look quite edgy.
You are under the age of 30 and have a healthy dose of body confidence
If you are Carrie Bradshaw
When in doubt, don’t.
Wear flesh coloured bras, that way it’s you and your outfit that commands attention not your underwear.
Unfortunately in Australia there are not a lot of dark-skinned flesh coloured bra options, which is why I will sometimes wear a black bra under a thickly woven fabric, but if it’s sheer, I’d rather go for a black singlet.
If you must wear a black bra, go for a bralet which covers more flesh and then the outfit is classier and isn’t about inviting people to look at your boobs, but at your ingenious styling and layering abilities.
