(Necklace - Sportsgirl, Tee - Dad's, Jeans - Cheap Monday) 

I was invited to MBFF for the trends show on wednesday (basically a wrapped up version of mbfwa)
I can't believe I wore a coat, I was basically sweating just standing outside... but good news, I can finally store my jeans and jackets away to make room for the bikinis and dresses!

The Akira show was actually really beautiful; the models were interacting and walking together so it appeared to bea scene from a movie. Also really loved the pink look from Manning Cartell!

It's been a pretty busy week, nothing unusual - I haven't gotten stuck into my new design brief enough to share progress with you guys...

(Gorgeous silk dress from Bec and Bridge)

Today I headed to the markets with my friend (who asked me not to include her face in the shot! haha) for an overdue catch up and lunch : )

She got a few adorable moustache drinking glasses and I picked up a few little rings

HELLO Vanessa!
I was so happy to see a new post up today! :)

First of all, I really really like your hot pink bralette! It's so cute and girly but also a little naughty at the same time. I love how it looks paired with your simple white tank, black jeans, and Chewbacca fluffy thing of a jacket :)
And I also love that third picture where your face appears three times. Soooooo cool!
Oooh and I love the pictures you captured of the different shows. They make me want to go see exactly what all the looks were.

I also really like your new rings and I think your drawing skills are fantastic and I love your blog like a freakish stalker but I'm actually just a really big follower (not as in I'm freakishly fat, as in I really like your blog). Hahahaha :)
And before I finish this rambling comment, I would just like to agree with what someone on your Tumblr said. You totally have Kiko lips! I'm so jealous since I absolutely adore her <3 It's okay though because I adore you too :D

Alrighty now.
I hope my rambling hasn't scared you!
I just get really enthusiastic and talkative and have to release my excitement somehow.

Have an awesome weekend lovely!
