What I wore – Fashion Week first edition

in Fashion Week,My Hair

Ok, this is a first for me. Here are my outfit posts from Australian Fashion Week.

I was unsure about posting these but I checked with you on Facebook and it was a huge yes so here goes. I can tell you fashion bloggers make it look easy… Instead of peacocking around the entrance I was running around backstage so I chose comfort over extra accessories but I still managed all week in heels ;)

What I wore - day 1

Day 1 – I remembered to get a snap at the end of the day (after I took my hair out – it was a waterfall plait) – wearing Witchery top, H&M skirt and Nine West heels

What I wore - day 2

Day 2 – favouring comfort I wore a studded shirt dress from Seed, jewellery from Oroton and Wittner leopard heels

What I wore - Day 3

Day 3 – wearing white AG jeans, leopard shirt from Italy, Zara blazer and Miu Miu heels. Big hair and bright lips to draw attention away from my tired eyes ;)

What I wore - Day 4

Day 4 – Another Seed shirt dress (I could live in shirt dresses) and Nine West heels and wearing MAC Lady Danger lippy

what I wore - day 5

Day 5 – For the day I wore leather pants, Mimco heels and an oversized shirt but I changed into this Therese Rawsthorn black dress for the Elle party.

How I wore my hair

With all the crazy of the week, I hardly took any hair photos! On the first day I wore my hair in a waterfall plait and on the second day I wore my hair in a half crown braid.

My hair on day 2 - half crown braid

The rest of the week I embraced my curls and wore them big every day. They were more than a little fluffy by the end of the week but I just went with it. Here are my curls at the end of the day on Friday.

Hello Elle runway and launch party

To finish off fashion week, I was invited to the Elle magazine show and launch party. It was a fun, fabulous way to end the week and I’m excited to see the first issue when it launches later this year.

After a runway show featuring highlights from the week, a cover was pulled off the catwalk to reveal a gold glitter floor. Models came back wearing custom gold gowns and carrying these fab balloons.

So now I’ve taken off my heels and had a rest on the weekend! I’ll be bringing you more beauty and hair trend stories from fashion week over the next couple of weeks. Not sure I’ll make outfits posts a regular feature, I’ll need to practice my posing first ;)

Thanks Kate! xx

Welcome to fashion blogging! I’m happy that you made the jump. :)
I just love those chunky leopard heels! And that first outfit is spectacular. LOVE the graphic skirt. The cobalt heels are the perfect pop of color.

I sincerely hope that you will make outfit posts a regular feature. I think your poses are just fine; they need not be super elaborate! As long as your beautiful style and all the elements of your outfit show, you’re good to go. :)
