Day 1 was undeniably my most enthusiastic and trigger happy day. Which means I also forgot to snap a pic of my own outfit (maybe in a later outfit post?). Loved all the pops of blue and red mixed in with classic black. I always love the simple looks best.

I'm finally on midsem break which means an upcoming John Mayer concert and a lot of uni work to catch up on. Happy Easter! Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend... x

MBFWA Day 1: Part 1

Some outtakes/personal favourites of Connie from (a very rainy) Day 1 of MBFWA and a quick snap of Nicole before the Carla Zampatti show. See the rest of Connie's photos on her blog.

I'm really behind in posting so watch out for the eventual flood of photos to come from the exhausting week that is MBFWA. This year I wanted to try something different and focus more on what I enjoyed - street style and candid (i.e. stalker) shots. So I drifted in and out of the venue, taking less and less photos as the week went on (this is inversely proportional to the amount of coffee I consumed), but this year was one of my best. I met some lovely people and actually really enjoyed myself.

Nobody really talks about fashion week in a bad light but I can tell you that it sure was nice getting back to the real world when it was over. It's all a bit overwhelming when you have a large number of well-dressed and unbelievably good-looking people in the same place at the same time for 5 days straight. Don't get me wrong, it's always an amazing experience but my blistered feet are certainly happier and I think my sleeping pattern is finally normal again!

Look out for part 2 coming soon, packed full of street snaps... x

mood board: wall art

Images from Saatchi Art, Pinterest

Thanks to countless hours spent on Pinterest looking at incredibly inspiring interiors and spaces (when I'm supposed to be studying) - I've started dreaming about the art I want to hang on the walls of my future home. Kevin and I have talked about how we'd like to decorate our spaces and - lucky for me - he's also a fan of wall art. I love the feeling I get when I first enter an art gallery or museum… awe and quiet appreciation for art that captures emotions in a way that nothing else can.

I think there's a skill in picking the right artwork but since I know next-to-nothing about art, the next best thing would be to trust instinct and choose pieces based on how they make me feel. My mum loves decorating with little red ornaments and ceramic dolls (which scares me) while my sister prefers more refined, practical furniture and lighting which double as d├ęcor. It’s interesting to see how different our preferences are - my love for cosy, warm, light-filled spaces is definitely unlike my family's taste. I'd love to have a big variety of paintings, black and white sketches and cursive quotes all around my home!

How do you like to decorate your space? Lots of colour, minimal or even modern industrial? Just like the clothes we wear, I think our personal space also says a lot about our personality so it's important not to think too hard about it and just to go with whatever makes us feel amazing and comfortable… X
