vamff 2016

Legs

VAMFF (Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival) has come and gone for another year.

This year I only went to one show and it was a lot of fun! That didn’t stop me watching the street style on Instagram from all my favourite bloggers and photographers!
Once again this year I saw so much variety in what people were wearing. All white or all black outfits were very prominent as well as lots of off the shoulder looks, one that I tried for the first time. I love this look, its just been a hard one to try as I’m breastfeeding which has restricted some of my clothing options!

By coincidence my friends and I all went for short skirts all in different styles. Mine was a newie I picked up from Witchery, with buttons down the front, a look that was inspired by one of my favourite blogs, They All Hate Us. I wanted simple this year and an excuse to bring out my beautiful yellow shoes! (if you haven’t read the story about them go take a look here)

VAMFF again confirmed for me that there are so many different trends. Some I like, some I don’t and some you will never see me wearing! For example flares…I’m just too short for that! I loved seeing lots of navy, and lots of gowns as well as beautiful detailed pieces. A sign that you can choose whatever you heart desires when it comes to fashion.

Blogger brunch

This week has been jammed packed and for once it’s been all about Geelong Fashionista which is really exciting. On Tuesday last week I went to a Problogger conference day which was great and I learnt a lot. Especially some great skills in using my camera!

On Friday evening I headed to the advanced screening of Dior and I at Moonlight Cinema’s at the Royal Botanic Gardens. A wonderful eye-opening look into the world of couture; looking at a huge fashion house with Christian Dior still looking over the stunning designs.

Saturday morning saw Natalie from Interlaced Media, organise a brunch with a group of 25 bloggers It was wonderful to network and talk to similar minded people. We talked and of course the cameras were out snapping the details of the morning finishing with a massive photo session with cars stopping and people looking as we tried to get the best shots.

Of course the fashion was wonderful with everyone bringing their style to brunch and making some really fun statements. I was sure to snap away and show their everyday style. It was wonderful to meet so many people I have been following and admiring on their journey’s. It’s so reassuring to know everyone is so down to earth! It was also nice to meet people I’d never meet before and discover their blogs!

opening night at vamff

Geelong Fashionista

On Saturday evening I headed off to the opening event of VAMFF fashion week; the David Jones Runway.

I love fashion week most of all for the street fashion and although I didn’t get a lot of photos there were some amazing outfits on the night.

I also got to meet a lot of people and that is always so much fun and making connections in the industry.

My two girlfriends Nicole and Ami came along with me and we all seem to have gone with white in our outfits.
Nic went for one jeans and a denim shirt, while Ami went with a swing dress and paired it with black to give a really great look!

I love the monochrome look from the editor of Alphabet Pony Magazine. I loved how she changed up the suit with a long top and the metallic clutch.

I also ran into Twice Blessed and I loved how the girls complemented each others look. It’s made me really want a sleeveless vest as they really look so great!

While I didn’t catch these ladies names I liked the way they had fun with their outfits and looked so different from everyone else.

Then there is me… I went with monochrome and popped it out with pink… It took me a long time to work out what to wear but I felt comfortable and still unique to my style. I even had people stop to take photos this year, (mainly of the stunning clutch), but all the same I had fun getting images and felt like me!KirstyDetailsPurple Chair

vamff is coming

I am very excited…. VAMFF ~ Melbourne Fashion Week has it’s opening night on Saturday night and I’ll be heading along to the opening runway.

Oh course I still have no idea what I wearing but hoping it will all come together in the next couple of days.

As much as I love the runaway and seeing the latest trends one of my most favourite things is seeing the street style and what all the fashion addicts are wearing. I could spend hours watching the people arrive down on the docklands in their style and setting trends for months to come.

To get inspired for the week ahead I thought I would look back on last year’s street style and showcase some of my favourites, and what I wore too.

I got to meet Cecylia last year and it was so nice to meet someone who was so down to earth and happy to get a photo with me! I loved how she looked so effortlessly good!

VAMFF Opening Night

VAMFF

Last Monday I was lucky enough to go to the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival (VAMFF). Andrew got me tickets for my birthday late last year, which was such a thoughtful gift! 

I took along my bestie Nicole and not only did we get to see the opening runway by David Jones we also got to go into the VIP party and hear Kate Miller Heidke’s amazing voice. I even got to meet some fellow bloggers which really made my night.

I also found a pink jacket! I am in love with it and decided it was the perfect place to debut!
