I recently came across the amazing blog, Fancy Treehouse, which is written by Coury Combs from LA, California. Coury blogs about her day-to-day life featuring photos of her outfits. I'm so inspired by her eccentric style which is expressed using playful layering, often contrasting colours & prints from her wardrobe, which always includes the most wonderful vintage pieces. No outfit is ever dull, "For as long as I can remember, my favorite thing to do was to put outfits together...and wear them...and make every day in each outfit the best day of my life." She completes each outfit with amazing attention to detail, down to the shoes, bags, belts, jewellery & even nail polish choices. Coury is stunning as you can see; 5'9" with her platinum blonde hair and bangs, usually complimented with pastel pink lipstick and rosie cheeks. She has such a unique and playful style, and the more I read and follow her blog, the more inspired I am to be that little bit more daring with my wardrobe choices :)

So I thought I'd share some my favourites of her outfit photos, and hopefully they will inspire you just as much!

There's something amazing about this time of year in Australia, the temperature drops, the ocean shows its power, trees lose their leaves & even your pets seem to love you more. Finally you can wear jeans every day and still be comfortable! I personally love the cold, and all that comes with it.

If you are like me this is also the time of year to start a hunt for that special cardi and/or sweater! Wool is an incredible natural fiber, and the pattern makers from days gone by knew exactly how to work it. So many of the sweaters we have in the store i try on and find it hard to put them back on the rack. Egyptian patterns, fair isle & cable knit are all things i love and look out for when hand picking the sweaters for Oh Deer. The brighter the better & the more random, generally the more amazing!

So our first instalment of vintage & retro knits are in store now! We will be collecting and re-stocking these all winter but if you see something you like grab it 'cause they are all one of a kind!

I don't throw this expression around lightly, but "OH EM GEEE", I am SO utterly and completely in love with the Strummer A/W 2011 collection. The high-waisted knee length skirts, burgundy & tan leather, frill blouses & beautiful vintage-inspired delicate prints in this collection make me giddy with their prettiness.

Not to mention the colours; Burgundy, Khaki, Tan, Navy & Pale Blue. Sigh, I would wear every single piece of this collection, especially the shoes paired with cute little school-girl grey & cream socks... get into my wardrobe now.
