MBFF Saturday outfit post


(Gail Sorronda headpiece, Calvin Klein shirt dress- worn underneath, scarf from Hong Kong, Friedrich Gray leather vest dress & leggings, Alexander Wang bag, Pamela Love rings, Jeffrey Campbell litas)

This year I had the pleasure of attending Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane (MBFF) with a press pass for 3 days (20th-22nd). This is actually my first fashion week attendance of any kind, so I really wanted to wear something fashionable, but mostly practical, just to absorb it all in. Oh, and something warm because it was friggen freezing! That means that portraying myself as an 'oh so chic' blogger by wearing a blazer so impractically over my shoulders like it was a cape was out of the question. (No offence meant towards anyone who does that btw.) So I guess the next few posts will be about my experiences at MBFF! The last show I'm attending is tonight!

I've also done some MBFF blogging for The Front Row as well which you can check out.
