IT'S FASHION WEEK!
Well, was fashion week. This week, the hottest designers released their hottest pieces and trends for Spring/Summer 2013!
I'm so glad I applied to volunteer at this event because I had so much fun!!
I honestly did not want this week to end, and it was kind of bittersweet. It was bitter because of how I never wanted it to end because it was so much fun and I had the best time, and it's sweet because I met a bunch of amazing girls and want to continue on to my path into the fashion industry. Everything about this week was perfect (except for being unable to take photos of Whitney Port's collection and take photos of her when she's two metres away from you.)
I was a dresser, which is someone who stays backstage and helps bring the collections in, set them up, and dress the models during the show. It's a whole lot of fun and I'm starting to like the stress and pressure of it all!
I dressed for the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia Trends show all week, the Myer Spring/Summer 2013 show, the CO by Cotton On show, and the Whitney Eve by Whitney Port show.
For the Trends show I had a model named Annika, and she was so lovely.
For the Myer show I had a model named Amelia, and she was super super nice.
For the CO by Cotton On show I had a model named Emily Green, and she was so nice and cute.
For the Whitney Eve by Whitney Port show I shared three models (Ksenijta, Yasmin and Annika) with a girl I met there and got along great with! All three models were stunning and so nice!
My most favourite collections were CO by Cotton On and Whitney Eve by Whitney Port because a lot of them were more my style, and more casual but still stylish.
We clearly weren't allowed to take photos, so I didn't bring my camera, but I got a few good shots on my iPhone's crappy quality camera.
So here's a bit of a camera roll of a bunch of shots I got during this week at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney:

Photo Diary VI









Hey hey, it's Photo Diary time!
Basically, nothing interesting has been happening in my life. It's all just school, family and shopping. So, although all of that may sound extravagantly exciting, I'll spare you the boredom and just present some random snaps for you.
01. I've been reading Lauren Conrad's first novel LA Candy and it's truly an amazing read! I'm still not yet finish, what with being caught up with other things, but I've read a few chapters so far and am truly impressed with Lauren Conrad's perceivable writing. Not only is this lady absolutely gorgeous and a fashion icon, she's an incredible writer! Definitely looking forward to getting the rest of the books.
02. Sales, sales, sales! Means - coupons, coupons, coupons! I didn't actually use any of these, but I was thinking about it. Constantly. I just never had the time to get around to it. Better luck too, because then I saved some $$$.
03. My tiny collection of nail polishes. Need I say more?
04. Now, a stack of magazines are my escape. Flipping through pages and pages of glossy goodness and being inspired at each and every page that you turn to. I love how my choice of magazines range from high-fashion to teen-fashion.
05. Four of my favourite perfumes. Zara Red, Mary-Kate and Ashley NY Chic, Lovely Princess (knock-off of Vera Wang's perfumes) and this one has no name and I threw away the box, but it smells amazing and it's the one I wear the most!
06. All my iPhone cases that are currently in my possession. Funnily enough though, I only ever use my clear transparent iPhone case that I purchased for $5 on eBay.
07. Revlon purchases from a month or so ago. Each piece, I love to absolute death. My faves are the lipsticks though! I might do a video on all of the makeup I own.. Just a thought.
08. My current additions to my daily makeup bag. The eyeliner made my eye itch once I applied it so I've been afraid to try it again to see if I really am allergic to it or something.
Enjoy!

Good morning, lovelies!
It's not the finest day here in the West, and it sure is quite cold. But the perfect way to make a gloomy day feel and seem brighter and better is to play dress-ups and put on a pretty little dress with a pair of fantastic heels.
The simplicity of the dress was what attracted me to it, but the fact that it has a sense of style, and the colour was just so easy on the eye, I couldn't resist. Plus, it was on sale for the best price possible.
All I've been doing this Winter is collecting cute and pretty dresses for the Spring and Summer seasons because I've had enough of those denim shorts and want to kind of change it up a bit. Good thing the warmer seasons' collections were on sale during the cold season, so that made it a whole lot easier to collect.
Enjoy!
