As promised, I have even more Wang goodness for you! For my second look, I paired the jacquard-knit crop with the jacquard-knit skirt and my old-school (slash rather beaten up) Alexander Wang boots. If you haven't been following news of the Alexander Wang x H&M collection from day dot then you may have skipped over the fact that Rihanna kinda stole my look. In all fairness, I really don't blame her. For me, this crop and skirt combo was a real stand-out within the collection. I'm also secretly loving the fact that I have the word 'WANG' printed across my back and my buttocks. Real mature, I know. For those of you wanting to get your hot little hands on these insane pieces and more, they'll be launching in Sydney's Macquarie Centre and Melbourne's GPO stores on the 6th of November 2014 (LESS THAN TWO DAYS TIME) from 7:00AM onwards. Maybe grab a pair of Wang socks for me too while you're there, yeah?

My homies! I know it's been a while and I know you've probably missed me a little (I missed y'all too), but I'm back and my guns are a blazin'. In celebration of my return, I teamed up with H&M to bring you two of my favourite outfits from the seriously hyped Alexander Wang x H&M collection, launching in Australia on the 6th of November 2014. For part one, I teamed the black scuba dress with the ultra minimal leather mules and of course topped it off the highly coveted 'WANG' beanie. As you may have noticed in the past, I'm a real sucker for a good LBD and this bad boy is no exception. With an RRP of just AU$89.95, it's a farshun gurl's dream come true. I'll be posting the second look shortly but in the meantime, feel free to drool over the full collection right here.

SUNDAY

Sundays are for sleeping in, getting brunch with friends (sometimes whilst rather hungover), heading to the markets, picking fresh blooms, reading books in the sunshine and cooking up delicious feasts as the sun goes down. Despite the fact that Winter is well and truly upon us, I stepped out on a lazy Sunday morning in a crop top and midi skirt set from boohoo.com. Call me crazy but it was so darn great feeling the sun on my skin and until the temperature drops below 15 degrees celsius, you'll find me rocking similar weather inappropriate outfits. Yes, I am insane and nope, I do not mind it. 

MBFWA '14 - DAY FIVE

So guess what doofus scheduled their Day Five post but forgot to actually publish it? This one. You'll have to forgive my lack of brain function, I've had a rather hectic couple of weeks with work, life and all of that fun shiz. For the final day of MBFWA 2014 I wore my H&M wide-brimmed hat, ASOS crop, ASOS leather jacket, Nasty Gal skirt and Yvonne Koné boots. I'd also like it to be known that I lasted a solid 17  hours straight in those boots with rarely a complaint. For someone that doesn't usually wear heels, I'd say that's quite a feat, no? I also have a few little snaps for your viewing pleasure from the early  hours of the morning, backstage at Alice McCall. I'd love to say that I had a few more for y'all but sadly our time there was rather limited. Alright, I'm off to sleep the next few weeks away. PEACE OUT, SCOUTS. 

MBFWA '14 - DAY FOUR

Today, for the first time in a very long time, I dressed up like a lady. My outfit consisted of an ASOS hat, Ray Ban aviators, Alice In The Eve crop, ASOS midi skirt, ASOS jacket and Nasty Gal heels (totes 50% off right now, bargain). I'm not quite sure if baring my midriff falls into the 'ladylike' category but I'm going to say that the flouncy skirt made up for it. Unfortunately the only backstage content I managed to shoot was at Emma Mulholland and as the area was quite packed, we were only given a few minutes to capture content. Therefore, I sadly have no backstage or runway imagery to share with you today (apologies, y'all!), so instead I'll leave you with a street style picture I managed to grab of the über adorable Ella Murphy, wearing Soot The Label.

MBFWA '14 - DAY THREE

Today will go down in history as the day I voluntarily wore colour. Pink, to be exact. As I'm sure you've already assumed, I've gotten to the stage where dressing myself in the morning is no longer an activity that I put thought into. In fact, I grabbed the first jacket hanging at the end of my clothes rack and was pleasantly surprised at the 80's school dance vibe it gave off. Long live the prom queen. If you feel the urge to dress similarly, I was wearing my H&M wide-brimmed hat, Miu Miu sunglasses, Nasty Gal blazer, Akin by Ginger and Smart dress, Louise Jean Jewellery choker, Benah bag and my trust Yvonne Kone boots. Another pleasant surprise from today was found backstage at Maticevski, where models dashed off the runway with florals arrangements dripping from their lips. To say that the show was breathtaking would actually be an understatement.

MBFWA '14 - DAY TWO

Greetings from the end of Day Two at MBFWA. My exhaustion levels are slowly rising and my ability to construct a full sentence is slowly deteriorating. Despite the hectic-ness (that's definitely a word, look it up), I managed to get a quick snap of today's #OOTD, featuring a pair of Miu Miu Sunglasses thanks to the #SGHRunway pop up, my new Bec & Bridge dress (similar here), ASOS leather jacket, my Benah bag and Alexander Wang boots. I also managed to head backstage to Bec & Bridge right before the show, where I frothed on the gold eyes and the mesh details. Tomorrow (Tuesday) starts off with a bang at Ginger & Smart followed by the likes of Michael Lo Sordo and Maticevski, so stay tuned for more drool-worthy imagery throughout the week.

MBFWA '14 - DAY ONE

Welcome to Day One of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, also affectionately referred to as FAHSHURN WEAHK. For the next five days, I will be (attempting) to blog and upload imagery of my #OOTD and any shows that I manage to attend. As today only consisted of the one show, Carla Zampatti (pictured below), I decided to keep it semi-casual in my new H&M wide-brimmed hat, a Paint It Red fluffy pink top, a Staple The Label leather skirt and my trusty Yvonne Kone boots. Tomorrow's proceedings are set to be a little bit more hectic with labels like Kahlo, Desert Designs, Bec & Bridge and Karla Spetic all set to walk the runway. Stay tuned for more content in the next 24 hours but until then, adios mis amigos!
