(green dress with front and back cut outs c/o ask grace, shades of blue heels c/o rubi shoes)

these portraits were taken by a friend on a cold, winters day. 
luckily for us we didn't travel far, we only popped over to the house next door which is being renovated. it was great fun having a snoop around the building site and being creative with a half built extension!

i've also decided to create a lookbook account this month, so if you like what you see please 'hype' away! i'm not quite sure how the whole site works so it would be great to receive some love and tips :)

24. MSFW thanks to MX.

After a whirlwind two months working full time, travelling four hours a day, and learning lots, I have now finished up and am ready for the summer! Hence more time to contribute to this page :)

The photos in this post are from Melbourne Spring Fashion Week which was last month. I entered a metro newspaper competition in which you had to send through a photo which encapsulated Melbourne fashion. To my surprise I won, being published on MSFW's Facebook page and on top of this receiving a free double pass to the Designer Series Runway.

My friend Bryanna and I went along, and because she'd been working at the festival, we also received passes to the VIP room where we were continually wined and dined before the show. Being our first runway we didn't know what to expect, but were thrilled with featured designers. Stand outs from the night were Alice Euphemia, LIFEwithBIRD, and Manning Cartell. For a first time, it was an unforgettable experience!

To add to the experience I was also notified a few weeks later that I'd won a major prize pack worth $150 and that my photo was to be published in MX newspaper. When it came in the post I was excited to see the Kevin Murphy 'Va.Va. Voom' pack. 
I was left feeling like September was my lucky month. Can't wait for next year's MSFW!
