One of my favourite looks for Fashion Week last week was this take on check suits swapping out check pants for a mini dress and a check blazer for a trench. I’ve femme’d it up by adding a Gucci belt bag (check here to see my unboxing and other way I’ve styled it) and toughened it up by adding black booties.
I like to call my style somewhere in between androgynous and feminine.
One of the funnest outfits I’ve ever worn to fashion week! A bright yellow faux fur coat and my favourite part is that I got to wear jeans so I was totally in my element and they had stars on them! so that theme dragged on from the previous day where I wore stars on my blazer and blouse (it was unintentional but a happy accident nonetheless).
I bought this basic grey marle tee from Urban Outfitters years ago – it has a super deep V neck to show off you bralettes, back when strappy bralettes were a huge thing. Now off the shoulder tops are what everybody’s after so I just engineered it as so.
Although this was one of my looks for Fashion Week I never like to be super dressy hence why I paired the boots, skirt and neckpiece with a basic tee which I knotted up at the front to add the casual element.
My last look for Fashion Week Sydney wearing an embroidered mesh skirt and peplum belt with a cape top. I had such a wonderful experience at MBFWA this year meeting a bunch of new bloggers whom had come from out of town for the spectacle. I love that you know everyone from instagram but kind of forget that there’s a person behind the 9×9 grid with a seemingly much different personality than their online one.
Everyone was so lovely & friendly, and what I would love to contribute to this blogging world is gathering a community of girls (and boys) who are there to lift each other and support each other rather than bitching and competing against each other. I believe everyone has their own race to run & their own journey towards their own goals so there’s no reason to bring other people down to get there. I find this is a ripe misconception the fashion industry has, and although it definitely DOES exist, I hope not to surround myself with said persons and I hope you never find yourself in their close circle of friends.
Surround yourself will people that will only encourage & bring you up & make you a better person and do the same.
It’s been a big few days at Fashion Week! This look is from yesterday wearing and embroidered organza skirt and bomber jacket layered over wide mesh – a fantastic take on sports luxe. I’ve put it together with my fave default heels (I promise you they’re comfy I didn’t get sore feet all day!) and a perfect grey coat with turtle neck tank. I love mixing textures and colour tones and I had alot of fun putting this together.
Had an amazing day at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week wearing stripe skirt suit from Cooper St and unashamedly contributing to the sea of lace up heels. The flurry of bloggers, models, editors, contributors and fashion people of the likes were a show in itself. I love seeing what people put together and their take on the current trends, or whatever trend they are trying to start.
Keeping it in the pastel family I paired my new fave crop/ skirt set I wore here with flats, a turtle neck knit, hat and cape. I’m a pretty firm believer that almost anything can be dressed up or down. Because whose really going to events every day? Noone. And dressing up gets exhausting.
Happy Friday my lovely readers I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
This is a look we shot on the last day of VAMFF by the water at Docklands. There definitely was no shortage of wide leg culottes at the Fashion Festival. In fact, I read an article that fashion conscious girls don’t dress for boys, they dress for other girls. Because if all girls dressed for boys everyone would be rocking a bodycon dress or skin tight jeans and tight tanks because men are purely visual creatures. Probably why Man Repeller has such an amazing style (in my opinion):
she who outfits herself in a sartorially offensive mode that may result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls, shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.
I straddle between the two. I’ve mentioned before that I’m not afraid to dress a little Kim K tight af in a midi dress but I also love drapey black layers that do in fact repel men and have been described as the Nazgul. So I give you here; My Sexy Nazgul Look.
