What I Wore: Fashion Festival Opening Night

22 September 2016

Telstra Perth Fashion Festival 2016 - What I Wore

Ah… the season of fashion weeks comes around so quickly!

(First with New York Fashion Week earlier this month, then London, Milan and then Paris.)

While I don’t go to International Shows, I love supporting my local fashion industry. I know so many designers, photographers, stylists, creatives, models, event organisers and more – who all work so hard doing what they love – I always feel super proud for them during this time of year.

Anyway, I try to make an effort to go to the local events. Every year, I have so many good intentions to arrange with local boutiques to borrow a dress or clutch, to proudly showcase some WA labels and independent boutiques. But it was not to be.

I’ve been really busy with my work and I genuinely feel quite bad I missed the opportunity.

(Yes, I know I don’t actually have to wait for the Perth Fashion Festival in order to showcase my local favourites, so consider this a promise to start doing just that!)

In terms of my outfits, I had to fall back on stuff from my wardrobe. I have absolutely no problems with wearing the same item twice!

Lover Dress

This is what I put together.

I’m wearing my gorgeous Lover Dress (which I bought on sale here). I wore this dress earlier in the year for a wedding in Bali, and I might wear it to a ball event later in the year… so I consider it money well spent!

Diavolina nude, stud heels (bought from here).

Mezi tassel gold earrings (no longer on sale).

Whistles Faux Fur Clutch (bought from here, no longer on sale).

I have a few more outfits coming up, so do pop back to take a peek!
