Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Weekend Edition.

I was lucky enough to attend Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Weekend Edition on the 12th of April (thank you Sunglass Hut!), and what a day it was!

ImageHere we are arriving at Carriageworks… I’m on the left and my gorgeous friend and fellow blogger Steph is on the right.

ImageFirst things first, my outfit!

What I wore: a black mesh stripe tee from Glassons, Bardot leatherette skirt, Kookai felt hat, Mac lipstick (‘Rebel’), Krystle Knight & Baby Anything jewels, and my trusty holographic clutch from Hello Parry.

ImageHere I am enjoying a complementary beverage in the Mercedes Benz Star Lounge… breakfast of champions!

ImageCarriageworks is an impressive venue and I can see why it was the obvious choice for fashion week in Sydney. During the show, we enjoyed a fabulous front row experience as well as a little gift bag. It was perfect for snapping pictures of the catwalk. Exhibit A: Talulah…

ImageNow let me give you a run through of a few key trends for the coming Spring/Summer season…

ImageWHITE: Suboo (1), Alice McCall (2) & Cameo The Label (3)

ImageSEQUINS: macgraw (1), Aje (2), Romance Was Born (3)

ImageBRIGHTS: Duvenage (1), By Johnny (2), Romance Was Born (3)

One particular show stopper for me was Betty Tran. My goodness, her dresses are incredible. This dress was probably the most dazzling piece to walk down the runway…

ImageAbsolutely amazing.

ENCORE

ImageImageImageI hope you’ve enjoyed my little wrap up from Mercedes Benz Fashion Week: Weekend Edition. I had an incredible time and can’t wait for next year!

OOTD: Monochrome Addict.

This dress by Glassons is so easy to dress up and down. To dress it up, add a red lip and some killer heels.

Image

The versatility of my holographic Hello Parry clutch is surprising; it literally goes with everything and I use it so often. It fits all my essentials and still has room to spare; what more could a girl want! I know it’s still going to look great going into Autumn/Winter 2014 too.

My Karen Walker ‘Super Duper Strength’ sunglasses have been my favourite pair for over a year now. The style and shape has been so easy to wear and I always feel super stylish in them. I know there are a lot of dupes around of this style now, but in my opinion, you can’t beat the original!

Image

Let’s not forget about the shoes. Every woman’s obsession. OK, that may be a slight generalisation, but lets face it… most of us really enjoy a good pair of shoes! I am personally loving the platform/wedge trend because I have a serious case of princess feet, and stilettos just don’t do it for me, from a comfort perspective. I was overjoyed when I spotted these babies in Wittner. They have a comfortable incline, the zipper adds some serious attitude/interest, and the peep toe style is very in for the coming Autumn/Winter season. What’s not to love!

OOTD: Floral Black & White.

I found this gorgeous black & white floral dress in Glassons and fell in love immediately. I love the print, the length is great, and it’s a dressy material too so very versatile. I threw on my denim jacket and trusty “Chunk” sandals from Windsor Smith for a casual look.

ImageImage

This denim jacket is one my favourite things. I bought it from Urban Outfitters in the UK in September. It’s vintage Levis. I love the colour and the oversized fit.. it goes with everything.

ImageImage

Now, the accessories. I’m a silver girl, apart from my gorgeous rose gold Michael Kors oversized watch. So whenever I find pretty silver things, I just can’t help myself. I’m loving quartz pieces at the moment. The necklace is definitely luxe for less, only costing $16.95 from Sportsgirl. My Krystle Knight ‘Balancing Ring’ is luxe for a little more, setting me back a reasonable $99.00.

My ‘Chunk’ Windsor Smith sandals get a good workout. They’re supremely comfortable and they go with so much.

The Details:
Glassons “Printed Racer Front Dress” ($49.95) buy me
Levis @ Urban Outfitters Denim Jacket
Windsor Smith “Chunk” Sandals ($89.95) buy me
Sportsgirl “Crystal 2 Drop Necklace” ($16.95) buy me
Krystle Knight “Balancing Ring” ($99.00) buy me
Sportsgirl Pout About It in “Violet Crumble” ($9.95)

OOTD: Black & White.

ImageImageI really love this white sheer floral top from Topshop. It looks fab with jeans or leggings for a casual look, or dressed up with leather. I personally like wearing a black bra under it – I feel like it looks more intentional and less like an accident that I’m wearing a see through top.

ImageYes, this is the infamous Zara skort. I bought it months and months ago. It’s one of those pieces you can easily dress up or down and goes with so much.

ImageImageImageLet me tell you about the amazing crystal ring I’m wearing. It’s from a designer I recently discovered called Krystle Knight. Let me tell you that it was love at first sight. The ring is sterling silver, and is called the ‘Balancing Ring’ which retails at $99.00. Extremely reasonable for the quality I think. I’m already trying to figure out which piece I need next. My bank account should be very afraid. I bought a size 7 ring, which is usually big on my middle finger so I’d intended it for my index finger. However, because of the width, it is actually snug on my middle finger.

The details:
Topshop white floral tee
Zara black skort
Windsor Smith ‘Manly’ sandals ($89.95) buy me
Kookai felt hat
Sportsgirl ‘Crystal 2 Drop Necklace’ ($16.95) buy me
Krystle Knight ‘Balancing Ring’ ($99.00) buy me
Michael Kors Handbag
Sportsgirl ‘Violet Crumble’ Lipstick ($9.95)
