Colour; I don’t wear it often, but I do like the concept of it. I love the fact that wearing something bright and colourful adds a little bit of joy and playfulness to your mood, and even to others around you. Fashion week is the perfect way to experiment with colour as there are absolutely no restrictions and it’s the perfect playground to mix and match and wear something you normally wouldn’t. Not that what I wore was too out there but for someone who feels more comfortable with monotones and the classic black and whites, I felt like stepping outside my comfort zone and trying something different.
Also I was featured on this week’s Sunday Age wearing this outfit next to the CEO of Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Week, Graeme Lewsey.

It’s no secret that Autumn is my favourite season.

Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival premier runway 2, presented by frankie Magazine and supported by Schwarzkopf at Priceline Pharmacy, was held on Monday night at Central Pier in Docklands which featured brands such as Alpha 60, Bul, Gorman, Kloke, Kuwaii and Limedrop. It was curated in a very youthful and quirky manner which fit the image of frankie magazine quite well. Colourful patterns and bright monochrome pieces were featured throughout the show as the models rocked a bold splash of colour on the eyes and braids in their hair, giving them an edgy yet casual look.

Travel diaries – Lorne

IMG_4019

Last week, we had a mini beach getaway to Lorne with a group of friends. We had booked and planned this a month or two in advance so we couldn’t predict the weather but luckily, we got the perfect weather that weekend. It’s a great spot to relax, unwind, catch some rays and leave your worries two and a half hours away. It’s a great destination for some sightseeing along the great ocean road, hiking up to a few waterfalls (we went to the Erskine falls) or just discovering this small yet lively beach town.
