Eye on Style: Kel from Amuse About

When I first stumbled across Kel's blog AMuse About, I was immediately taken with her post about her anthropomorphic impractical white eyelet dress. I mean, what fashionista can resist a dress with a soul? I really love that there is always witty and smart content to go along with her pretty wardrobe photos. So without further ado, meet today's pretty and smart Eye on Style guest, Kelly Lieu.

amuseabout-1-332


name: Kelly Lieu.

location: Sydney, Australia.

occupation: Lawyer.

wearing: Zimmermann silk shirt dress, Camilla and Marc slip, Veronika Maine blazer, Steve Madden heels, vintage Bally bag, Peter Lang gold cuffs, onyx earrings from India.

favourite designers: (currently) Kym Ellery, Yeojin Bae and Susien Chong and Nic Briand of Lover.

what style means to kel: style is about being the best version of yourself and letting your clothes and thoughtful details show that. Style is not about clothes, but an embodiment of confidence and happiness in who you are and the personal you have grown into. I have personally never considered myself stylish, despite my unnatural obsession with pretty clothes. If someone happens to think I'm well-dressed, that would be more than enough because it's not so much about making a fashion statement but rather expressing on the outside what you feel on the inside, as understated or overstated as that might be at any given point in time.
