Is it just me, or is there something just so darn special about locally made pieces? They seem to capture the essence of their local environment, as if the scenery and atmosphere were quite literally sewn into their seams.

This couldn't be more true with the pieces from Wild Sugar by Sajeela. Punchy florals and bold prints capture the vibrant colours of the Great Barrier Reef and the tropical rainforest to sheer perfection. Whilst flattering, and often flowy, cuts represent the laid back atmosphere of Cairns and Far North Queensland. 

Designed and made by Sajeela right here in Cairns, Wild Sugar is for 'the sophisticated wild child'. Specializing in resort wear, business wear, bohemian and evening dresses, each piece is made with the type of love and detail that you just don't find in chain store pieces.

Cairns ladies can go and browse their gypsy souls away in their boutique at The Pier. The rest of you? I suggest you check out their online store and inject a bit of Far North Queensland into your wardrobe!

Being the huge bohemian geek I am, I couldn't wait to get my hands on these pieces and take them for a cheeky beach adventure. My personal favorite piece is the Spring Dress in North Star, the slight hanky hem line and cinched in waist is made for my pear shaped figure. The Love Child Jumpsuit made me feel like I had time traveled to some sort of Seventies utopia filled with psychedelic flower power and balmy ocean breezes.

If you're looking to style up your own bold, boho printed piece, here are my tips:

How To Style Bold, Boho Prints

1.  Let The Print Do The Talking

That means no huge necklaces, scarves or accessories over the print itself.

2. Colour Compliment

Choose a colour that appears minimally in the print and bring it out in a handbag, shoes or statement earrings.

3. Play On The Gypsy Vibes

Add statement gold or silver jewellery in places it won't cover the print, add metallic tattoos and if you want to do something crazy with your hair, go for it!

Stay wild moonchild!

    Absolutely the perfect combination if you ask me hehe

  24. Dear Rachel, I agree absoutely to what you wrote about local produced pieces and the pieces of this brand has definitely this vibe!

    Thanks for your tips, they are helpful and make sense to me!
