This is my take on the classic white t-shirt, and blue denim look. I wore it on the weekend to go for ice cream and a walk along the beach and Williamstown Botanical Gardens.

I absolutely adore this blue chambray wrap skirt I bought last year. It’s been a staple that goes with anything from a casual tee, to a dressy black top, to a collared shirt half-tucked in. The wrap trend is one that I’ve embraced thoroughly and I hope it stays for a long time to come coz I’m planning to continue wrapping myself in things. Why wouldn’t you want to? You become like a present to yourself that you get to unwrap at the end of each day 🙊🙊🙊
Anyway, it feels great to be inspired enough to get back on the blogging bandwagon. Leave me a nice comment, I’m looking forward to checking out some new blogs and also posting more from now on!
Anna Quan’s new collection lookbook is a dreamy delight for the eyes. Shot in front of a textured rocky backdrop, this collection features relaxed, flowing silhouettes in subtle grey and white, camel and eggshell blue. The delicate combination of wool, linen silk looks absolutely luxurious.
I’m a big fan of the flared sleeves and relaxed, oversized hemlines. These pieces will be perfect for that Autumn transitional period between Melbourne’s warm sunny afternoons and those bitter chill mornings.
Hooray for Aussie designers kicking goals!
This is the runway show that was held in the Melbourne Museum underground carpark. How very Melbourne hipster of you, Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival! It showcased some of Melbourne’s more indie/alternative brands – bul, Kuwaii, Limedrop, I Love Mr Mittens, Obus and Ryder.
I Love Mr Mittens
I loved the classic, flattering cuts and the quirky understated prints that came down the runway. Almost everything that was showcased by these brands I could see hanging in my wardrobe this Autumn, and that’s a really important point for me, because often Australian fashion labels send beautiful pieces of art down the runway which are not work or uni or everyday appropriate at all! So kudos for that. I suppose my only real criticism is that the clothes seemed quite ‘safe’ and stuck to a formula. There was no particularly ‘WOW’ factor to anything. But if you find a winning formula, why change it, right?!
Well that’s a wrap! VAMFF is done and dusted for another year. See you next year!
