LMFF Paris Runway 7

They say there's a first time for everything and last night saw me experiencing another first; my first ever L'Oreal Paris Runway event! I was filled with so much excitement, as I made my way into Central Pier, Docklands, care of my chauffeur, aka husband

Cuddling up to the cutest Dulux dog I have ever met, was such a sweet way of starting off a night which was going to be filled with many magical moments. I had the pleasure of attending the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, Paris Runway 7, presented by Frankie Magazine 

On the runway, the following Australian and New Zealand designers showcased their new Autumn/Winter collections for 2013: Gorman, Kuwaii, Leonard St, Limedrop, Secret South, and my two absolute favourites, Karen Walker and Jolet

Much to my sheer delight, Karen Walker started off the show. I've always been a huge fan of hers, much more so recently. My favourite looks from the Fantastique Magnifique collection were the knits, in the prettiest pastel colours with the cutest of spots. Who can forget that pink A-line coat. LOVE!! I have huge cravings now! 

Another highlight from the night was the Autumn/Winter 2013 collection by Melbourne-based designer, Jolet. My favourites were the "Tokyo Lights" printed sheer blouses and dresses. I'm really fond of Jolet's digital prints and love how she's evokes different moods and stories.

I enjoyed every moment, from meeting the team who made my media accreditation possible, AMPR, to being treated like a VIP, meeting up with my fashion blogger friends, designers and fashionistas. I simply did not want the night to end, but with everything in life, good things must come to an end. I cannot wait to do it all again!
Special thanks to the wonderful team at AMPR, in particular Kelly Tanti. I welcome the opportunity to work with you again in the near future to support this fabulous event that is the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

  1. you looked so demure in that LBD! Wasn't Violet the Dulux canine mascot divine?

    1. Thanks Cecylia! I was actually wearing a sweater and skirt. Would have looked like an LBD in the dark though! Yes, I loved Violet. She's a real sweetie.

French nautical

Ilove stripes, especially navy & white. It's very Parisian chic! My favourite Breton striped cashmere/silk blend sweater has been the absolute best investment of all time. 

There are trends that come and go and then there are classics. I tend to steer towards the classics. The striped boatneck sweater is yet another timeless piece which should live in everyone's closet.

I stumbled across some old pics of movie starlets wearing nautical stripes, such as my favourite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. Years have passed and the striped sweater still looks as fabulous as it did back in its heyday.

This sweater I'm wearing is by Australian label Bezoar. They seem to have fallen off the radar at present, so I hope that in the future I can purchase another one like this! 

This is my go-to outfit for comfort and style when I need to run some errands. What's yours?
Hoping that your weekend was fabulous and your week is even better!
Yours in style

Top 5: Miu Miu Edit S/S '19

Another live stream runway show I had the pleasure of viewing was the Miu Miu Spring/Summer '19 show live from Paris Fashion Week. A highlight included looks from the red carpet as worn by famous models, actresses and digital influences, such as Australia's very own Margaret Zhang. Another highlight included seeing the image projection of models onto the new Miu Miu logo. Although, seemingly "out there", it was a very interesting and exciting way to begin the show. 

I loved the bow details as seen on blouses, headbands, eyewear and shoes. Tailored blazers and coats from an array of luxe fabrics were seen in the majority of looks from the collection. 

The new Spring/Summer '19 Miu Miu collecion captures the very essence of the brand: feminine, chic and girly. Lots of sparkles, glitter and crystals featured in the new collection, an element that has become Miu Miu's signature. I couldn't help but capture tiny hints reminiscent of the 1920s "Flapper Girl&…

gelati in the gardens

I was joking with my better half about the outfit I chose to wear to our special family reunion. We needed to travel into the city to the Fitzroy Gardens, and on our journey, we kept eachother entertained by thinking of gelati flavours which matched my oufit. In the end we decided upon raspberry, strawberry, vanilla & mango!
The morning was quite fresh, so I decided to wear a layer of silk/cashmere over my silk chiffon shirt. This magical blend always comes through when I'm in need of extra warmth and comfort. This ensemble was the perfect match for my raspberry coloured skirt! 

For a picnic, flats seemed like the perfect choice, because of their practicality. So I decided to bring a touch of mango to the gelati mix! These mustard coloured, patent leather ballet flats, are so chic and comfortable. They are one of my favourite pairs of Repetto ballet flats, purchased from the fabulous Alice & Deb at Treasurette.
