Leaves in the dusk, tangled gypsy tresses and the iconic Fleetwood Mac tune on repeat is our slightly different Autumn dream this month. Isn’t that what the changing seasons is about? Being different and undergoing a magic renewal, of sorts.
While we’ve been having the best summer yet in our vibrant December to February accessories, we’re ready to embrace our dark side. Hot on the heels of the Robert Rodriguez, Kenneth Cole and Zimmermann collections at New York Fashion Week, we bring you our HFB Black Magic necklaces, featuring a dense chain, matte detailing and glossy crystals.
Now matter how in tune with the universe you are, your planets don’t have to be aligned for these celestial prints to pull you right in. While the solar system may have been formed billions of years ago, recently it has inspired an entirely new trend. From Christopher Kane’s resort
lines to sexy workout wear from Nike to those Black Milk leggings you either love or love to hate, the fashion world is taking this print to the moon and back. Our unique galactic scarves punctuated by stars, planets, and the cosmos has so much happening. If the scarf is the only accessory you have time to throw on, we doubt you’ll need anything else!
STYLE: CLASSIC Bless’ed Are The Meek Radiate top. Bless’ed Are The Meek shorts. The Mode Collective double strap heel
LIGHT YEAR LUXE
Her Fashion Box Moon Of My Life scarf, $32.95 Her Fashion Box Sauron ring, $12.95
While you classic ladies probably wonâ€™t go for the idea that the vast and pre-time galaxy is as classic as it gets, the Moon Of My Life scarf design is simple, yet cutting edge. We love the simplicity of the silver moons, a design that still dares to be different to send your outfit soaring. Pair it with a white tee and a floor-length pencil skirt, or with an office blazer to bring the look back down to earth. And if youâ€™re lucky enough to occasionally see those sunny days in Autumn, skip the scarf and pair your Charmed necklace featuring black petal-like plates and a chic metal chain with your Sauron ring for a dual statement. Her Fashion Box Charmed necklace, $29.95
STYLE: Feminine Bless’ed Are The Meek sweater. Bless’ed Are The Meek Warp shorts
Her Fashion Box Solar $32.95
Her Fashion Box Shoot For The Starts necklace, $29.95. Blessâ€™ed Are The Meek
You might have just whizzed up the Milky Way and straight into heaven with the Shoot For The Stars necklace. The angelic hues of white, opal and crystal clear lend the perfect delicacy to the hard black chain, not to mention the Spell It Out ring that will also ensure you dazzle with every gesture. On a breezy Autumn eve, whip the gorgeous electric blue Solar scarf round your bare neck for that last minute, I-always-look-this-amazing get-up.
Her Fashion Box Spell It Out ring $12.95
STYLE: TRENDY Caslazur shirt. Caslazur shorts. The Mode Collective lace up bootie.
Her Fashion Box Piercer ring, $12.95.
Her Fashion Box Spacin’ Out, $32.95 Bless’ed Are The Meek Archangle dress
Get up to no good in this fierce fuscia Spacin’ Out scarf, a piece inspired by some of the most unique fashionistas out, Alexa Chung, Carey Mulligan and Jessie J, all gals who dig the galaxy print. To get your followers even more starry-eyed, pop on the Piercer ring for good measure. If your outfit already speaks for itself, then your best bet is to indulge in some collar candy with the enticing Bewitched necklace.

Prep your skin by exfoliating your body. The Le Tan Exfoliating Mitt is perfect for this! Make sure you dry your clean, exfoliated skin. Moisturise any dry areas before you tan. Think elbows, knees, ankles, hands and wrists. This will make sure your tan doesn’t build up in these areas. Time to get your tan on! Spray your body holding the can about 30-40cm away. For an even application make sure you spray in a continuous sweeping motion. Put on dark, loose clothes while your tan dries. You can hit the shower after 4-6 hours.

Say hello to your eye’s new magic wand! The Outrageous Volume Mascara is Designer Brands newest release. This mascara is big on impact and volume, providing a thick yet elegant look without having to resort to false lashes. Made with the Designer Brands exclusive GS-13 brush that coats and builds lashes without clumping, lashes are left soft yet boast intense volume. Outrageous Volume Mascara is designed to complement all the classic tricks of the trade.
We have three Do’s and Don’ts to help you achieve perfect lashes every time. Oh, and did we mention the mascara is also infused with Vitamin E to promote lash strength and contains no parabens? We’re in love.
Do’s & Don’ts
Do invest in an eyelash curler. Curling lashes ensures you get the best results from your mascara and helps give the appearance of even longer lashes and wider eyes.
Don’t pump the brush in and out. This introduces air and bacteria into the tube also causing your mascara to dry out more quickly.
Do try zig-zagging the mascara back and forth, and wiggle the brush right into the lash roots. This helps prevent clumps and gives the illusion of length.
Designer Brands Outrageous Volume Mascara RRP $9.99

The timeless ladies will have received a range of classic neutral, nude tones. With these versatile shades, we suggest the awardwinning, dream couple duo: the nude lip and smokey eye!

Girls will just want to have fun with this vibrant pink and coral selection! These shades will not only let you clutch a little longer onto Summer, but will harmonise beautifully with your HFB necklace this month. We feel less is certainly more with this lippie, pairing it nicely with light amber or copper eye shadow, eye-opening white eyeliner and a blush matching your lip to seal the deal.
