Wish Style Challenge ‘Winter In The City’ Event

I’m so glad I’m finally on holidays and relieved from assessments, along with stress from work due to the end of financial year. I can finally unwind, relax and catch up on my much loved blogging!!! Staring with the Wish Style Challenge event I had the honour of attending late last month.

With Wish releasing their amazing winter collection, a competition called “Winter in The City” was held by the clothing label early May. With the support of Honda Australia, the challenge was to style a piece of the Wish winter collection in your own way. With some of Australia’s best up and coming fashion bloggers taking part, the calibre of entries were simply sublime.

I was so happy to attend the event held in such an amazing venue with canapés and frequent flowing drinks (hahaha I can never complain when 2 of my vices have been answered).

I have never really been to such a big event with so many talent and amazing bloggers, it can be a super intimidating experience and if you know me personally you know how awkward I get hahaha! I’m so glad I had Camille from from Frilly Skirts there, since we met the first time last year at another event, I’ve spent time with her and her incredibly talented photographer/blogger boyfriend Ramon and now I see them both as my really dear friends.

It was such a fun night and I am so grateful to Wish for organising an incredible event. Everyone was so nice and friendly, there was even a small dance floor; I was dropping it like it was hot all night, Hahahaha! not really but it was still super fun to get our dance on!

This is why I love going to these events and meeting people that share the same interests and experiences, it is something I truly appreciate about the blogging world and the blogging community. I can’t wait for the next Wish Style Challenge!!!

Thanks for visiting !!

I’ll see you soon with another event post 😉

Wish – ‘Wait For Sunrise’

Here is a sneak peak for the new winter collection for Wish – “Wait for Sunrise”!!
I have always loved their dresses but this recent collection has by far stood out to me the most.

Living on a student budget, the key thing I look for when I purchase items is its diverse aesthetic, how many different ways it can be styled and how many times it can be worn (especially items that are slightly out of my budget).
Although, I do love my girly floral prints, big filly skirts and cute lacy tops, I also love mixing it up with sporty street wear (the hidden tomboy in me 😉 ), without loosing the femininity in my style and this collection is exactly that.

Each piece can be taken and adapted perfectly into so many different personal styles, from casual to chic and it can be worn from day to night.
The dresses keep that sweet feminine touch with the structure, print, cut and lines. However, the separates are cool and edgy, with an urban aesthetic.

It is definitely a collection full of pieces that I can see myself exhausting, both wearing it for work and my college life.

Keep a look out for it HERE!
