How I’m getting ready for Fashion Week

12th May, 2017

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia is one of the biggest events in the fashion calendar in this country and with a hectic week ahead of me I’ve got to make sure that my wardrobe is organised and ready for the next few days ahead—this is one of those times when I can’t afford a morning outfit crisis!

I’m quite decisive when it comes to my outfits and know that I want to wear something the moment I see it. That said, when I’m prepping my looks I make sure to consider all aspects of my outfit from head to toe; it all has to gel. As Fashion Week is mostly a daytime event I don’t like to look too dressy but I do make sure that whatever I’m wearing is stylish and polished yet not too overdone. It’s also a great time to be able to roadtest new trends that I’m loving and most importantly to have fun with my wardrobe (it is Fashion Week after all).

I almost always incorporate colour into my looks and also have a jacket or coat with me at all times as the weather can sometimes get cool. As I like to have everything look cohesive, I always make sure that my jacket or coat is considered and not just a last minute afterthought to throw on over what I’m wearing as this can end up looking a bit haphazard. One thing I don’t mind leaving to the last minute is my accessories. As I have my entire outfit planned ahead of time it’s not too stressful selecting what I’ll be accessorising my outfit with on the day as I like to choose it depending on the vibe I’m feeling that day.

It’s always a great time to support some of my favourite Australian designers so this year I’ll be wearing Bec & Bridge, Christopher Esber, Tome and Dion Lee. They’re always guaranteed to have pieces that I love and are very “me” in their aesthetic. As I mentioned I like to experiment and play with new trends, but one in particular that I’m loving at the moment is velvet so you’ll definitely see me incorporating it into my looks for the week (watch this space to see how I end up styling it into my outfits).

There are so many designers that I love who are showing this year but I’m especially excited about attending Dion Lee, Bec & Bridge, Romance Was Born and Ten Pieces. I’m sure that they won’t disappoint. It’s always an insanely busy week for me but I really enjoy Fashion Week as it’s a great time to get some fashion inspiration and also to see what I’ll be wearing in a few months time. I can’t wait for it all to kick off this Sunday!

P.S Don’t forget to check in on the blog, Instagram, Facebook and Twitter throughout the week for all my Fashion Week coverage.


The best street style looks from Fashion Week

One of my favourite things about attending Fashion Week each year is the people watching. Having such a concentrated dose of fashion lovers in one area whether it be magazine editors dressed in the latest designs to fashion bloggers and retail buyers means being spoilt for style inspiration every single day. What I love is seeing the creativity that people have when pulling together their outfits— whether it be really dressed up or really casual everyone always puts their own unique spin on their look. There’s a uniquely Australian way of dressing which was quite evident from what I saw last week and it’s a lovely marriage of being polished yet with a relaxed vibe and I think it just works in a laidback country such as ours.

And now for your viewing pleasure here are some of the best looks from Fashion Week to leave you inspired for your next shopping trip… or just simply what you’re going to wear tomorrow morning!

MBFWA 2016: The week that was…

23rd May, 2016

I can’t believe Fashion Week is over for another year. It was a hectic week and I had a lot of fun checking out the shows, catching up with some of my favourite people in the industry not to mention the fashion inspiration was next-level (my shopping list has almost doubled in size). Here’s a look at the week that was…

One of the great things about Fashion Week is running into friends such as Sara Donaldson of Harper and Harley.


My fellow bloggers were out in full force!


Trend spotting and people spotting was almost a full time activity throughout the week!
