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*
Fashion week is always a mixed bag. Some people are inspired by what they see on the runway and some are more wowed by what they see on the guests.
To put it simply, if fashion week was a three course meal, street style would be the tasty dessert. Today I share with you my looks from days 3 and 4 of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, which includes a suitably chocolate- hued top (nom nom nom)...
Fashion week: a plethora of stunning clothes, new faces, old friends, endless flashing lights and blistered toes. If only the glasses of champagne and front row views could be forever...**sighs**.
With Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia in full swing, it's safe to say that MBWA: You have totally upped your game! **Aussie Aussie Aussie! Oy oy oy!** With stunning resort collections from designer collections including Zhivago and Ginger & Smart and a saucy catwalk appearance from Bella Hadid, there is a whole lot of tales to tell...
But as I sit with blistered feet and an on-coming surge of slumber, I thought I'd share my Fashion Week looks for the first few days of MBFWA....
Let me tell you about my current drool-worthy pair of shoes I can't get enough of...
- They go with everything
- They are sooo comfy
- They look super chic
Tell me Rachel, what are these magical unicorn-esque shoes?
MY ADIDAS SUPERSTARS!
If you have been reading my blog lately, you would have seen that I have jumped on this street style trend wagon with my hands in the air screaming 'hallelujah!'. Trans. I wear them all the time.
And if you've bagged yourself a pair of Superstars, or any other stylish sneaker, you're in luck! I've been around the world of the net and found 10 crazily stunning outfits with sneakers aka trainers. (Where's my British gone?)
Just a quick message to your feet: You're welcome!
Living in tropical Australia, one of the most common things I get asked about is my tan. I'll tell you now: it's fake.
As a matter of fact, I am the biggest (and safest) anti-UV granny when it comes to real tanning. I wear SPF 50 and take shade under the palms when I visit my beachy paradises.
Growing up in the UK, the slightest slither of sun would see my pasty, white bod laying face down on a sun bed. Now I live in one of the hottest and sunniest places in the Western world and I'm always covered in sun block. Why? 1 in 3 Australian women will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime.
Fortunately, getting a tan can be easy, safe and is waaay faster then a 2 week wrinkle-causing bake out!
