Confusing Fashion Advice

Recently, I was lucky enough to be invited to the book launch of ‘IMPRESSIVE’; the new book by Kirstie Clements’ (former editor-in-chief of Vogue Australia)! Thrilled with the opportunity to meet somewhat of a celebrity, or at the very least, an Australian style icon (!!), I was totally perplexed on what to wear! I wanted to look professional, without looking boring; fashionable, without looking mainstream; and chic, without looking overdone. Because, if there is one thing I know about the ‘high-fashion’ industry (and truthfully… I don’t really know that much at all), it is never, and I mean NEVER, look overdone. Always appear carefree, fresh, – Parisian even – like you have put as little effort in as plausibly possible and that it is actually a possibility that you just woke up. So, well, with that unnecessarily confusing self-advice in mind – that was exactly the look I was going for…

Floppy hair that just happens to sit that way, a not navy, but blue Madeline-inspired dress (from Thing Thing Boutique) that brushes just above the knee, and moves as I move, sharp, pointy black boots which I’ve worn and worn so much they have practically become an extension to my feet and a black vintage, timeless, trusted leather bag. AND as for the event? Well it was absolutely magical. With gourmet canapés and sparkling cocktails circling the room, Clements’ willing audience of fashion bloggers, industry professionals, marketing gurus and the like, listened in, entirely captivated by her expert advise and unexpected humour. Thank you Westfield Doncaster, for yet another, brilliantly organised event.
