ECHO

These pix were taken during a lazy Saturday morning, after breakfasting in Teneriffe. Being well into Autumn now, the mornings are getting cooler, bringing about the opportunity to wear some of our favourite outerwear. I wore my new favourite staple, this delightful Stylestalker bomber jacket. Besides having this rad baroque-esque floral embroidery, it is the perfect autumn bomber. Bombers have always been my favourite kind of outerwear but most of them are pretty thick and bear-like which renders them unwearable during the milder autumn months. However, this light bomber is perfect for the slight chills of autumn and also serves as a legit waist accessory when the day warms up around midday. I'm also wearing this beautiful SOOT Echoe Pleat Dress. I love the subtle earthiness of the dress and how although it having a typically feminine silhouette, it isn't really too girly for me at all. Oh yes, I'm wearing my rad AM eyewear 'Ally Jean' shades again. They haven't left my face all week!

ORCHID

This is what I wore during a recent burger hang with the twinnie. It had been eons since I'd worn an (almost) fully black outfit but over the weekend, I kind of felt line toning it down and going back to black. I wore my (now) favourite pair of shades, these classic wayfarers by AM Eyewear. I used to wear these sunglasses to death last year until I lost them but now I am super glad to have a replacement pair. I centered my outfit around this cool printed tank by RYWS that makes me feel  reminiscent of one of my fave Givenchy collections :D

Day four - our final day at fashion week (we flew back on the Friday morning). I've kinda been trying to stall posting my fashion week posts because I really don't want you to feel even more bombarded by fashion week related pictures that have taken over all forms of social media for the last few weeks - whether it be runway shots, outfit shots, or behind the scenes ones. It is pretty much still 80% of my instagram stream. Particularly if you were at fashhun week yourself, you may've tired of seeing endless shots of the same shows and the same outfits. But I decided to share my recount with you anyway, to share the experience through my perspective, so begging your pardon if I'm being repetitive! So day four, also known as my third day as a self-imposed Emma Mulholland poster girl (Yes, someone did actually call me that - this was my third day in a row wearing Emma Mulholland). During the week I came across ALOT of people who had planned their outfits to the smallest details weeks and weeks ahead and felt they had to wear the newest season pieces. What I didn't like about this was I felt that maybe some people were taking this all too seriously. Sure, fashion is liberating and can be used to express and represent your inner self (and all that shiz) but I think it is something that should be a bit spontaneous and not be over-thought about, and just be enjoyed.Although I packed clothing thinking that they'd be pieces that I could wear to fashion week, I mostly wanted to wear clothes that I've worn many times over and that are really 'me'. So planning my outfits pretty much came down to wearing what I felt like at morning from the limited things I had in my suitcase - and I totally felt like nothing more than wearing Emma Mulholland over and over and over!! :D xxx

COBALT

I've had a bit too much free time on my hands recently, and so Tas and I have been trying to make the most of it before our lives become super busy again (although our bank accounts haven't been too obliging). During the weekend, we went on one of our typical James St hangs and indulged a bit at one of our favourite joints. Tasfia wore this beautiful Maurie and Eve top from the FW13 Reflections collection. I love how extremely electric blue the colour is and its baroque embroidery feeds perfectly into our new baroque print/pattern obsession. Also, on a side note, how great is this trans-seasonal weather at the moment?! - sunny, warm but with a bit of a cold bite to the air - still shorts/mini skirt wearable but long sleeve permissible too!
