My MBFWA Street Style Diary

Entering the MBFWA street style scene is a bit like becoming a metaphorical comma and jumping into the depths of 'Marie Claire'. You're surrounded by loud exclamation marks, capital A-listers, and perhaps the odd italic question mark.

From endless embroidery, to that gingham wrap blouse I had my eyes on forever, here's my MBFWA street style diary...


MBFWA Street Style Day 2: The gingham wrap blouse

After day one's double whammy of ruffles and bra-flashing, things took a turn towards casual for day two.

This wrap blouse had me at balloon sleeves. Add the gingham, off-shoulder and flattering wrap shape into the mix and was hooked.

For a MBFWA street style ready look, I paired it with ripped jeans and my trusty Gucci lookalikes. I layered fishnet tights underneath to hide that cheeky slither of un-toned tummy. Truth be told: hectic days at fashion week often end up in chowing down on Dominos in your undies at 10PM. 

Nope? Just me? Enough said.

These earrings look like they have been stolen from Cleopatra's treasure trove and transported into the 21st Century. I'm such a fan of shoulder-skimming earrings and I have been wearing these on repeat lately.

'Wait Rach; only one outfit for day 2?'. Read your mind, didn't I?

 Fear not, I had the mandatory outfit change and I photographed my more dressy evening ensemble at my hotel, The Urban Newtown.

MBFWA Street Style Day 3: The shift dress with a difference

Blouse: H & M (Similar)
Loafers: Boohoo
Bag: Farrah & Sloane* (You can rent mine here)
Sunglasses: TIJN Eyewear*

Can you spot the circle details? Hint, there are absolutely everywhere.

I took inspiration from the unique circle details on this C/Meo Collective dress and echoed them in my earrings and handbag handle.
 
Although Sydney was surprisingly mild to the locals, my tropical blood couldn't hack it. I layered this cute Victoriana style blouse under my dress to stop any impending pneumonia. Just kidding, it was like 20 degrees (aka. an English Summer).

When I glanced in the mirror on day 3, I remember thinking that I looked like Disney Prince-Pirate, but in the best possible way. Yep: I'm aware that isn't even a thing.


MBFWA Street Style Day 4: The off-shoulder, embroidered, big-sleeved extravaganza

This dress is like a dreamy lovechild of all the trends I have been loving at the moment: off-shoulder, embroidery, bell sleeves, extra long sleeves. Then just when you thought I couldn't get anymore '2017 trend cliche', I topped it off with a corset belt, fishnets and loafers.

Although your Nan may think I'm off my trolley, I absolutely loved my final street style look!

Best of all, every single garment in this post costs less than a $100! 

That's a wrap on my Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia posts! 

Fancy a cheeky recap? No problemo:

  4. I like the puffy sleeves of your Princess Polly Cha Cha Wrap gingham blouse in your MBFWA Street Style Day 2 OOTD;
    I also love the look of your MBFWA Street Style Day 3 OOTD Shoptiques 'Two Can Win' Mini-Dress styled with the H+M embroidered blouse (or Similar blouse from Stylebop), but;
    My favourite of these MBFWA Street Style OOTDs is from Day 4 - the Tranquility Hunt Off the Shoulder Dress from Princess Polly styled with the waist-cincher and fishnet hosiery.
    All three of your Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia outfits looked pretty and stylish.
