Last month I attended Fashion Weekend the second time and just like the first, it did not disappoint. readily available looks featured on the runway, discounted designer garments, stylish, sleek and cool company, what isn’t there to like.
Here are some stylish snaps we captured both on and off the runway, enjoy 😉
Thanks again for visiting and I’ll see you soon with a new outfit post and our first giveaway 😀
I was so glad to run into Ixiah designer Krystel Davis at the Ixiah space at Fashion Weekend, as usual she looked amazing. I was even able to score the last top from their Winter 13 collection, check out the details on my Instagram HERE!

Since our first Fashion Week, blogging life has been crazier than ever! Definitely a response that we did not expect. However, we were pleasantly surprised and humbled by the amount of people who have taken an interest in what we do :). The down side is I have not been able to move at such a rapid pace, thus the delayed posts.
After catching a breath from the chaos, I have been able to re-organise and finally work to getting these posts up to date, starting with this one, YAY!!!
The people of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Sydney were both compelling and intriguing. I never imagined having the opportunity to attend such a celebrated event within the fashion world. In the past, I had imagined it as walking into what I would think is the equivalent of a dream like circus but in fashion. With gorgeous people who wore crazy outfits that were strange, aesthetically confusing, however, entertaining, shocking and at times humorous. I would never be able to make sense of why people would wear what they wore and the thought process behind it…..was it to seek attention, maybe?
It was not until I myself had attended the event, interacted, conversed and immersed myself in Fashion Week that I started to answer those questions.
What I had taken away from the eventful week was that the thought process behind each outfit, it was not for entertainment, earning the right for fashion exclusivity, nor gaining attention from the public or media (for most anyway). It was purely for self expression, creativity and making a personal statement of who you are through what you wore. There was a beauty about it, the concept of wearing what you wanted without the insecurities of boundaries and judgement, usually received from the public who easily misunderstands an individuals fashion choice. Fashion Week was a chance to be expressive, use fashion as a language and communicate with those who share that common understanding. I loved every minute of Fashion Week, it was like Christmas but in different sense hahaha!
Here are some of the styles that caught my eye, some of the people that inspire me and some of the people that I look up to who I had the pleasure of meeting 🙂
Which one is your favourite outfit?
Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you tomorrow with some long overdue outfit posts hehehe.
I even found a twin hahaha 🙂 we were both wearing the same navy cherry blossom print from 10 Deep
It was such a pleasure to meet Jordan Turner from So You Think You Can Dance Season 4, he was a complete sweetheart!!!
Timomatic… SAY WHHHAAAAT!
K is for Konnie, such a pleasure meeting a fellow fashion blogger who is so inspiring with her unique sense of style.
Who couldn’t forget the stunning Margaret Zhang from Shine By Three, so breathtakingly beautiful and every time I see here I get completely star struck and embarrass myself with unthought of jumbled words (*sigh, shakes head*). Besides the first embarrassing encounter I had with her, I thought It would be best to keep my distance hahaha!. Till next time, maybe I’ll have the guts to say hi again.
Of course my absolute favourite fashion blogger Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Vintage. She is the epitome of beauty, inside and out, the very person who inspired me to start my road into fashion and the person who inspires me till this day. It was such a dream come true being in the presence of blogger royalty.

For those of you who have just tuned in, I am a big longtime lover of Fossil and I was especially excited when they had invited me to their Leather Preview Launch earlier this year in May.
So as soon as I got the invite to attend the store launch, I was even more excited that I found myself counting the days down to the event (bit embarrassing to admit).
Held on the 11th of December, it was all class; live Jazz music, the best finger food I have ever tasted (I had eaten before hand too, so you know it’s good when your eating on a full stomach), incredible mojitos served in jam jars, chocolate covered strawberries and great company.
The store set up was so cute! Against the back of the counter wall, there were Christmas tins aesthetically sequenced. I’m devastated that I didn’t get to take a photo of it but it is something you will need to see for yourself.
We were fortunate enough to get a first look on the latest Holiday ‘Season of Enchantment’ collections and there was even a live artist who created custom designed tins. Check out more of his work on Instagram under @skullavera
Fossil has always produced such great quality products laced with an authentic vintage feel through their designs and hardware.
We see through their collections a modern twist on their recent designs. Creating more of a fun, edgy look, however, still staying true to their original vintage aesthetic and because of this, I am always going to be a big fan!
Check out their new store just in time for the end of the year sales at –
Queen Victoria Building (QVB)
Ground Floor, Shop 5

For those of you who have just tuned in; Ixiah is a label I came across for the first time at Fashion Weekend and immediately fell in love with the unique, intricate and gorgeous designs from designer Krystel Davis.
A couple of weeks ago I was invited to their very own store launch at level 1 Mid City Centre, Pitt St. in Sydney. I was so excited for the event, I couldn’t wait to see the collection up close and personal, plus I had my eye on this stunning Aztec print maxi dress hehehe.
The set up was incredible! From the layered necklaces and neckpieces to the simplest strand on a garment, the pieces on the mirrored manikins were styled to absolute perfection. There is so much personality and difference in the designs of the collection and it was so beautifully translated through the layout of the store. The staff was so kind and welcoming, already a handful of people at the event were trying on pieces from the collection.
I also got to meet the designer behind the label, the incredibly talented Krystel Davis. I had spent the night trying to work up the courage to speak to her. Chin (partner/photographer) was so surprised, he said “You’ve never been like this before” and he was right! Usually I just go for it, however, this time I came down with a case of being starstuck. Just before I left I finally snuck in a somewhat nervous conversation, she was gorgeous, amazing and so sweet!
The collection will only be temporarily open to the public at their pop up store in level 1 Mid City Centre, Pitt St. in Sydney. So as soon as I get my Christmas shopping out of the way I will be back with a vengeance and shop to my hearts content.
Here are some snaps from the event:
Spotted Crystal Ling from Reebonz, I was so happy to run into a familiar face 🙂
The models were amazingly styled, they seriously looked like amazons, and as usual I look tiny next to them hehehe.
With the designer Krystel Davis, she looked absolutely stunning in her very own designs. I especially loved how the necklaces were layered and used as an accessory over her heels…..amazing.
Thank you again for stopping by and stay tuned on my next outfit post 😉
Have a good weekend!
Hello! Long time no post!
Sorry everyone! I know it’s been a whole week since I’ve posted compared to my usual 3 times a week update.
Last week was so crazy for me; I had assessments due, end of month deadline for work and a farewell. Not to mention Sydney Fashion Weekend and the first bridal photoshoot I’ve ever styled happened the week before.
Yeah, I was slightly overwhelmed but the good news is I have so much to update you on! Starting with SYDNEY FASHION WEEKEND!
Sydney Fashion Weekend is all about YOU! The shopaholics! They have everything a girl could want, great shopping at affordable prices, bubbly to share with the girls and a fashion show spread over four days; Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Me and Camille Sioco (www.frillyskirts.net) represented WhatIWear.com and Fashion blogger Jess Tuong came too representing her blog (www.mindbodyshop.com).
It was awesome, we got media passes for all access, totally the best!
This is the first time I’ve ever been so I had no idea what to expect. The moment we walked in, it was designer pop up shops everywhere…. It was like I had died and gone to fashion heaven!
Here’s a little taste of what Sydney Fashion Weekend was like.
Stay tuned this week to see photos of the fashion show, snaps of some stylish designers and people. I will also be giving you the inside scoop on the best day to go for discounts on designer clothes so don’t miss out!
Thanks for visiting 🙂
HEHEHE this label had my name in it so i had to take a photo 🙂
This was one of the girls at the fashion show, she asked if she could be in the blog, she was so cute 🙂

For my 15th birthday I received my very first Fossil watch, it was given to me by my brother Erick and his girlfriend Elin. It was a pink-faced watch, with a delicate design and a wristband that resembled a silver bracelet. It was one of my most treasured gifts because I admired the people who had gifted it to me.
Through the years I have watched the Fossil brand grow and I admired from a far. When I had the money or if there was a special occasion I would happily splurge for a new watch.
Being a big fan of the brand, when I initially received the email invitation to attend the launch, I was convinced it was spam. I thought to myself “No, they wouldn’t know who I am”, so I casually brushed it aside.
It wasn’t until fashion blogger Camille asked me if I was attending, I all of a sudden realized that I was genuinely invited and got super excited :D. Thank goodness she asked or else I would have never went!
I attended the launch last Tuesday held at Alexandria Sydney, Vicinity Dining. The event was in an intimate private room secluded from the restaurant.
I assumed that I would be walking into a room full of watches, but to my surprise, there were a range of bags displayed.
The brand, which is moving into their 30th anniversary in 2014, is going into a different direction with their brand and products. Their current campaign is called “Make your mark”, using a lot of bold colours and graphics within their new designs.
We were lucky enough to be one of the first in Sydney to preview their new collection, which will be released in July – August and you guys also get a sneak peak :).
The preview was very interactive, allowing us to feel, touch and explore the new bags as they explained the design behind it.
Fossil will be releasing four lines of handbags and wallets, which will cater to most women who love functionality, lightweight bags with a vintage, quirky or fun design.
The line called “Key-Per” was initially brought out as a Christmas edition; however, it received such a big response that instead it was made available all year round and I can see why.
This line is perfect for anyone who is studying or enjoys fun, colourful designs (like me). It is functional with many storage pockets for the every day woman and made with coated canvas for those who prefer not to use leather.
This year’s design is based on pencil shavings, striped colours and polka dots. Reflecting Fossil’s humorous and quirky side. Plus the bags are so affordable with prices ranging from $129-$149.
Fossil will be focusing on 3 main lines, one of which is the “Memoir”. This line is for the women who appreciate more of a vintage design, inspired by the 1950’s.
With articulate hardware and beautiful interior, this vintage design comes in different shapes and sizes to suit anyone.
I usually don’t do much leopard print, however, I LOVE their leopard print used on the vintage designed bags. The Memoir ranges from $279-$299.
The second line that they are focusing on is the “Erin”. It’s functional, affordable with great hardware and has the best quality leather, signature to fossil.
The texture of the bag was so soft and smooth with a buttery leather feel; made with a lot pockets to store your everyday gadgets.
Initially I was a little unsure about this design, I was worried about the wear and tear of the bag due to its delicate texture, but don’t let this fool you. Because of the leather used, which is the best in the market, I learnt that the bag would look even better over time. With the best quality leather, the Erin line ranges to $149-$349.
The main line that Fossil is focusing on this year is the “Sydney”, which is my personal favourite out of the four.
The Sydney bags come in a multitude of colours; orange, plum (my favourite), teal, gold black etc. The designs are vintage inspired with a modern twist.
After handling the bag, it was surprisingly lightweight and durable, which is good because if your like me, my whole world is in my bag.
Fossil will also be concentrating on their new signature print, inspired by mid Century architecture. I personally love it! I love the rhythm, colour and shapes used.
The Sydney line ranges from $149 – $279 ( so affordable! )
Not forgetting their watches, this year it is all about “Owning the wrist”. Fossil’s pieces are jewellery inspired, with bands ranging in fun colours that pop and with such feminine designs. They also have beautiful bracelets so you can layer it up with their new line of watches.

Also met the interesting Fashion blogger, Lauren Hernandez from http://www.youronlyblackswan.com

The food they served was amazing!!! Here is just a sample of what we indulged in that night.
I loved meeting the passionate team behind the brand and I can’t wait till these bags hit the stores, you’ll definitely be seeing these bags again on my outfit posts.

Last Saturday I was invited to attend an event held by WhatIWear.com.
The event was for selected Sydney fashion bloggers to get to know each other and meet the people behind the site. The main aspect of the event was to communicate the type of community WhatIWear.com are aiming to portray through their new website. It was an opportunity for fashion bloggers to come together to share their insights and knowledge about all things fashion related.
In light of the event, they had given us colours to dress for the occasion; orange, black and white. Orange is not a colour I wear often, it was once a colour I hated, but has since grown on me.
It was truly refreshing walking into Guylian’s Café in Darling harbour (where the event was held) and seeing all these intimidatingly beautiful bloggers painted in the themed colours. Knowing that I’d be meeting other fashion bloggers, I have to admit, before the event I spent quite some time thinking about what to wear (hehehe).
But after meeting everyone, the nerves had settled and I realised that it was refreshing to converse with other fashion bloggers who shared the same interests. Being new to the blogging scene, I sometimes question if I’m doing it right or if I should be doing things differently. However, after speaking with the more experienced bloggers (some with three years under their belt), it was reassuring to know that after all their years of experience, they too have their doubts.
On the day, I wanted to showcase an outfit that was my usual quirky and fun style. I wore a simple black dress over a long sleeve floral top with a black contrast peter pan collar. To make the colour of the top pop, I teamed the outfit with orange socks and cream brogues. To top it off, I accessorised with a black bowler hat.
I was so lucky to meet all these new fashion bloggers based in Sydney, and it was great to know that we could still stay in touch through different types of social media.
This experience, meeting fashion bloggers, sharing common interests and finding people alike who love fashion is the type of community you’ll find on WhantIWear.com

Last Saturday, I was invited to a label launch for a new up coming brand, Tokyo Twerk. I was fortunate enough to meet the talented designers behind it all, sisters Jenny and Christine Le.
It was refreshing to see a new, unique brand filled with fun and crazy designs inspired by Tokyo.
I also had the chance to speak to the creative director Lin Canh, who had organised the event and the decorations for it.
Just like the label, the launch was raw, youthful, fun and absolutely crazy (you know me the crazier the better). It was held in an intimate venue called the Back Room, with a live performance from Fingertips.
I can’t wait till their website is up and running, so I can get my own shirt!!!
I’ll be posting up more photos of the outfit I wore that night, so keep a look out for this weekends post.
Here are some photos from the event . . . ENJOY!
