Saturday night I experienced my first Royal Melbourne Show! I’ve been to the Sydney Easter Show many times (see!) but this is the first year I’ve lived in Melbourne to experience the show. I was originally thinking of going by myself, but when Hayley put up she was thinking of going if anyone wanted to join her, I immediately jumped in with a YES PLEASE!
Thanks to Hayley for taking the above photo & the one at the bottom of the post! It’s starting to warm up a little lately and it’s been so nice being able to wear skirts & dresses again!
The animal nursery is always my favourite area, so when we arrived at 5pm, we headed straight over to see all the cute animals! Getting to pat all the goats, sheep & chickens was so much fun!
I only went on two rides, the flying chairs above (soooo fun) and the spin-y roller coaster (which you can see a bit of in the snapchat videos below). I ended up buying 4 showbags, which I’ll have a video up of soon!
The firework show was pretty amazing, and of course we all had to get a professional picture with the little lamb, so cute!
Australian Fashion Week is coming up & I was asked to join in a challenge sharing what fashion week would look like if I was to take over!! I get contacted a fair bit about doing posts like this and I don’t usually accept. In fact, I think this is the first time I’ve done it, but after reading it, I couldn’t stop my brain from imagining who would be there, and what I would wear!
For people sitting the front row, I’d be happy with the current contenders. Media and bloggers work hard throughout the year and deserve the good seats. Celebrities help bring in extra notice to the brands, which is always a good thing. But don’t forget the ‘not so famous’ bloggers! I attended MBFWA one year and only got to go to, I think it was 3 shows. I’d make sure to even make some standing room for some of the people who are lower down of the ‘fashion ladder’.
Fashion week doesn’t have a theme, but if it did, the theme I would choose would be ‘DIVERSITY’. The fashion industry is quite diverse in ethnicity, but I’d like to see more plus size models, Trans models and disabled models. I’ve chosen a few Aussies I’d love to see on the catwalk.
I’m often drawn to designers who think a little outside the box and offer a lot of colour and shapes. Oh, and sequins!!
I’m not usually a fan of high necks, and I don’t own too many maxi dresses, but when I saw this dress in store, I knew I had to try it on. (I also tried this one on too) As I slipped it over my head, and it fell around my body, I knew that I wasn’t leaving the store without it.
When I was younger, you’d never get me to look in stores like Katies, Rockmans, Millers. They were too ‘old’, but these days, they are one of my favourite ‘in store’ places to shop. While they aren’t fully size inclusive, Katies do have items that go up to a size 20 & 3xl.
These photos don’t do the colours in the dress justice. It’s such a vibrant chartreuse-y yellow. It has a black slip underneath and splits up both sides. I think it will be so lovely and airy in summer!
Tiny butterfly ring for my ‘animal in every outfit‘. I’ve had this ring for a few years now, but it’s slightly too big since I’ve lost some weight. I bought in from BrandsExclusive, but I don’t remember who it’s by.
