Wearing: Atmos and Here TopAtmos and Here Skirt, Black Boots (similar here and here), Leather Jacket (similar here).


Matchy match style is taking over, and to say I’m obsessed would be an understatement. 

 I feel like I’m not alone here either… Matching sets and coordinated fashions are everywhere at the moment. It has even gone beyond simply matching your own outfit, having a twin or sister to match your outfit to, is even better!
Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately?!) there is only one of me, and I have tried matching outfits with my two year old daughter but it’s not quite the same (not to mention the weird looks we get!) 

So I had to settle for matching my skirt to my top in this polka dot ensemble by Atmos and Here. Not a bad compromise, I suppose!

Now if only I had a twin..

What to Wear: Perth Cup

Day at the races

The biggest event of the Perth Racing Festival is coming up fast. For those of you stuck on what to wear to this year’s Perth Cup I have put together a what to wear guide.
You’re welcome!!
1. Bardot Peplum Dress – A simple dress that doesn’t show to much skin is a race day must.
2. Mimco Feather Veil – I am not a fan of the fascinator so when I saw Mimco’s feather veil it instantly captured my heart!  It is the perfect head piece for the anti-fascintator fashionista.
3. Turquoise Diva Necklace – A black and white dress calls for a colourful statement necklace. Bright Summer colours are a must and the bigger the better!
4. Kotur Pearce Clutch – A metallic hard case clutch with just enough room for the race day essentials. Lipstick, powder and a pencil (for filling in the betting cards!!)
5. Guiseppe Zanotti Wedges – A comfortable wedge shoe. No explanation necessary here but I will give a small hint: Grass everywhere.

This year’s Perth Fashion Festival is just around the corner. The excitement is building for the events 14th year with the official program launch earlier today.

The festival will run from 19th September until the 25th September and this year includes four stand alone designer showcases, three WA designer capsule shows and a new free event Fashionably Loud combining music and fashion with designers such as Ellery, Story by Tang, Kitty Grace and Belle Bijoux showcasing some of their hottest items to the tunes of San Cisco.

Another new initiative this year is the VIP Closing Night event: Giving Back is the New Black. PFF is teaming up with Ready to Work ( a charity that supports disadvantaged women) for a showcase of WA designers take on the little black dress.

Student runway

 
   

 I was so excited to be asked along to the Student Runway show at PFF. I was really looking forward to seeing the creativity and talent of the student designers and the show certainly did not disappoint!

It started with a short collection from each of the three winners from last year (Alissia Gomez, Celene Bridge, Jeromy Lim) which was amazing and even featured a live snake draped over one of the models shoulders. (Brave girl!)

Next up where the entrants in the design categories. The students really let their imagination run free which resulted in some incredibly inspiring designs. It’s hard to believe that these designers are still students and it is so exciting to think what the future holds for these talented, aspiring designers.

Story by Tang

 One of my favourite shows of the Perth Fashion Festival was Story by Tang. I pretty much loved everything about this collection. Keyhole backs teamed with structured cap sleeves, knotted ruching and the completely wearable black, nude and red colour palette all really appealed to me. And don’t even get me started on the hair and makeup. Amazing!
 Watching this collection made me want to own a piece, so I guess you could say it was a definite success.

Unfortunately I didn’t get any decent photos so all images seen here are courtesy of Simon Santi.

Paper Skye

 

White, bright and sheer. Paper Skye was all about the pure look with the use of sheer, white, textured, fabrics layered over white underwear throughout the whole collection. Long floaty lengths, small pleats and vertical stripes all featured in this immaculate collection. I really loved the white on white look but I was left wondering if it is actually acceptable to wear sheer dresses with only underwear underneath? My question was answered on Sunday night when the stunning face of the Perth Fashion Festival Nicole Trunfio was spotted wearing just that.. so I guess the answer is yes but only if you are a model!

Lisa Marjanovich

 
Next to hit the runway at the designer capsule #1 was Lisa Marjanovich. The collection was made up of slinky, draped pieces in beautiful muted tones. The wet look hair and dewy makeup perfectly complemented the fluid notion of the clothes. Shorter hemlines with longer draped pieces and layered fabrics with twisted detail were all dominant in this unique, elegant collection.
