Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia: My Style (Days 5 and 6)


Mercedes-benz fashion week australia street style
Fashion Week down under is like walking into an issue of 'Harpers Bazaar.' Beautiful people twirling in designer dresses, huge photographers and PR mavens whose names are about as hard to say as that Peter Piper tongue twister.

Here's my little corner of that magazine: my street style looks from days 5 and 6 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. 

Bargain hunters, get your happy faces at the ready, this post includes one of my most photographed looks: a $18 playsuit*


Day 5

mbfwa street style
 Top: Dotti (Similar here)
Culottes: Ginger & Smart (Similar here)
Jacket: Style Moi (Similar here)
Clutch: Local boutique (Similar here)
Scarf (on waist): C/Meo Collective
Shoes: Adidas Originals (Get it here)
Sunglasses: Gucci (Get it here)

Here's me being all quintessentially Australian with my lack of color. But instead of going all Scandi-style minimalist, I piled on textures and prints to the max!

This Dotti top is two of my fave things: marble and high neck, and it was such a steal at $20! Unfortunately, it's sold out, but Missguided has an equally cute white one!

As you can see, I did the whole 'non-chalent-coat-over-shoulders' kaboodle. Is it just me or does it make a jacket look instantly more expensive? Free class? I'll take that!

I added sneakers to my Ginger & Smarts culottes for a bottom half that is as comfy as lying in bed all day **bliss**.  I was given this C/meo Collective scarf after attending the show and once I saw it, I had to incorporate it into this monochrome look.

Day 6

western boho beltaustralian fashion week style

 summer playsuit style

Playsuit: Yoins* (ONLY $18! Get it here)
Belt: Yoins* (Get it here)
Clutch: Tony Bianco
Scarf: Michael Kors
Boots: ASOS
Sunglasses: Miu Miu (Get it here)

People say, leave the best to last. In my case, I left the most bargainous til last. As I always say 'you don't need a million dollars to look a million bucks' and this was 100% true with my $18 Yoins Playsuit!

With an on-trend floral print, sassy, off-shoulder neckline and a longer overlay that was made for twirling, it's not surprising that this beauty was admired by street style photographers. 
 
The most amazing thing about this piece is that it looks super expensive.  And as I strutted towards cameras who had previously been snapping designer-clad girls, I had to hold down my grin.

 I added to the casual boho vibe with this Western-style skinny belt and black ankle boots. This skinny scarf is actually a belt from a dress, but I think it really adds a bit of quirk to the look.

If you're not bored of my mug, check out my looks from days 1 and 2 and days 3 and 4. Or you can check out the Australian Resort Collections here.
