It is 7am Monday morning and I have been up for 3 hours already, the consequences of getting a new puppy.
Whilst I am here, still awake from the double shot cappuccino I had, lets recap on last weeks MBFWA (Aka Mercedes
Benz Fashion Week Australia) 

Why was it a fun week? Because it is so nice to see the talent that comes from the Australian fashion industry
and of course to catch up with my industry friends. If you liked what I wore, I shall note the details below,
and (hopefully!) find an store online to purchase it from (links in terracotta). PS I have already posted Day 1, so from Day 2 it is.

Here goes –

Shop one of the seasons biggest trends

I must apologise for the lack of communication on here. I have been working on a project, I hope you will love as much as I do. But whilst I am here, lets talk about my love for velvet. I know that velvet is one of this seasons biggest trends right now, but I have been a huge fan of her since the 1990’s when my eyebrows were plucked way too thin and I wore platforms channelling my inner spice girl. 

I know some of you are a little scared to wear the trend even your grandma loves, but if you check out the new velvet arrivals out there, I bet you will be wearing it before you gauge down next Saturdays brunch. 

Today, wearing my favourite colour and texture rolled into one. 

Shop my favourite velvet pieces, from all our favourite stores below.

There is wearing a suit, and there is wearing what looks like a suit, but way more comfortable and a hell of a lot of more effortless! That is me…..now.

I think I put this on this morning because I am weirdly obsessed with watching GIRL BOSS at the moment. And to be brutally honest, Sophia makes me want to get sh*t done.

TIP BABY, TIP! To avoid looking double the size, wear tops that pull you in at the waist, or if the whole top is fully oversized, get those legs out!!

Whoever has said to you they only wear their clothes once or twice, is either completely insane, totally lying or is sitting on a pot of gold.

I can guarantee you, I am not one of those people. I am actually the complete opposite. If I like something, I will wear it almost everyday. It will start to look tattered and worn, so much, that my husband asks if there is anything else in my wardrobe (haha!).  I am one of those women who buy one in every colour if I like it so much. Sometimes I have to buy a new one and throw the older one out. Now, THAT is loyalty.

This brings me to this post. 1 very good blazer (the Camilla & Marc Dimmer Blazer), 5 completely different ways. 

Now be experimental and wear your items a little more than a few ways.
