Runway 6 at VAMFF

Yes most runway shows I have been to I have loved but last nights runway show was the most amazing out of them all as it consisted of pretty much most of my favourite fashion designers all in one hit and the collections were impeccable… however the stand out collections for me were Ellery, Sass & Bide and Yeojin Bae.

These are the styles that I fell in love with and claimed its spot for my favourite collections for the night:

Seriously it was the best runway show. Look at how amazing the above styles are? I would wear them all in a heart beat πŸ™‚

 

The experience I had over those couple of days was phenomenal and I am so incredibly lucky that I get to attend these! Going to be so sad when this week is over, had such a fantastic time πŸ™‚ Below are a couple of quick snaps from the night and look how close I was!

Proenza Schouler A/W ’14

This is one of the collections that stood out for me the most during new york fashion week as I love the exaggerated shoulders and sleeves of the jackets, print clashing, metallic touches and the ability to stay very modern which I absolutely adore. I know my style is very minimal and chic but this collection crosses boundaries by being structural and still wearable.

I would like to share with you all a new-found love I have for the CovR magazine clutches! As you all know I am obsessed with handbags as well as owning a never-ending collection of various high magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and FashionTrend. What I love about CovR is the fact that two my favourite things in the entire world has combined into this beautiful creation: a magazine cover clutch. Honestly…what more could I wish for? Love it!

Elie Saab Spring/Summer 14′

Elie Saab is an absolute genius… every.single.season he produces such an impeccable collection and I am always left gobsmacked by how delicate and beautifully crafted the garments are! What I particularly love about this collection is the use of lace (have I told you how much I love lace?) and his ability to make any woman look like pretty angels . The colour palette in his collection were delicate and beautiful colours consisting of whites, baby pink, blue and finishing his collection with a darker palette transforming the models from pretty to sexy but elegant women.

Here are my favourite looks from the collection ❀

Burberry Prorsum Resort ’14

Here is a selection of photos from the Burberry Prorsum Resort that I believed to be my favourite styles/garments out of the entire collection. I love the gorgeous delicate patterned see through skirts/dresses showing off a silhouette, the floral cutouts, the colour palette consisting of white, green, red and grey and the comfortable-yet-super stylish look with many of these pieces. If I had the money I would buy everything Burberry! So obsessed :P.

Enjoy πŸ™‚

A little bit about my style :)

Hi there! πŸ™‚

Thought I’d share an overview of what I define as my own individual style which speaks a lot about me as a person and a lot about my lifestyle.

My personal style is very simple, elegant and chic. I believe simplicity goes a long way and with the right fitting jeans, cute jacket, a great handbag and lots of confidence you can make any outfit work! I’m a very busy and organised person, so wearing something simple yet still dressy such as a nice top or a stunning jacket over a cute dress, is what I need as its easy to wear, comfortable for the entire day but still screams out that I have fun with fashion and look presentable.

In terms of simplicity, I might wear a simple coloured and well fitted dress then use minimal accessories, a great bag and killer shoes! I always make sure my hair and make up is looking fresh and never overdone so I radiate more of a natural glow πŸ™‚ In more casual terms, I would usually wear well fitted jeans/dresses (my favourite is Bettina Liano Denim jeans, they are comfortable and fit so well with our womanly curves!), a plain, clean t-shirt (Witchery have some great casual t-shirts!), a bag with eye-catching colour and a great pair of comfortable flats/sandals or even a shoe with a bit of a wedged heel.

In saying this it doesn’t mean I don’t like to play with fashion a bit more πŸ˜› I’m starting to get into really bright colours as they go well with my complexion and I always receive lots of compliments when people see me in a bright coloured dress or top! Colours that suit you well gives you a huge confidence booster as the right colour will make your skin glow and look great with your body shape!

The most obvious thing I like to do is make sure my clothes fit me well and that they are comfortable. We might occasionally have a top a bit too tight, pants that don’t fit at all the right places and shoes that give us blisters yet we struggle to part with them because we either love the brand, like the look of them or just in general find it hard to let go of clothes! Clothes that fit you well and feel comfortable to wear is what makes them look good and it will always make you feel good! So comfort is a high priority of mine when it comes to fashion!

My essentials/favourites you will find in my wardrobe:

  • Lots and lots of blazers!
  • Bags of pretty much every colour and size
  • My Bettina Liano jeans
  • Comfy flats and lots of Wedges (I do have a few killer heels but can be very impractical at times as they called ‘Killer’ heels for a reason!)
  • lots of basic tops, tights (great to wear under a dress for winter) and leggings. Always fun to dress them up and accessorize
  • Lots of short flowy dresses

What I hope to buy in the new season!

  • Cropped pants
  • A new baggy knitted jumper (I can pair this with leggings and a pair of heeled boots)
  • Another handbag…yes I am quite obsessed!

Thanks for reading! Stay tuned for my upcoming post about My Beauty Essentials.
