OOTD: Fashion Weekly Relaunch

I was lucky enough to be invited by Suger (and by-proxy by Danielle), to the Fashion Weekly magazine relaunch at the very gorgeous Oxford 152.

It was an interesting night of fashion, beauty and fabulous company (I won't go into too much detail about how I wet my pants with excitement at the thought of being at a real fashion-thing- a real one! ;)! Okay, so it wasn't quite as glitzy as I imagined and we may have snuck out for sushi before coming back for the runway shows; but it was still amazing!


The gorgeous ladies (and men) from Boss Models strutted their stuff on the red carpet showcasing some of our fab local talent. I was very impressed with the super cute designs by Kezini swimwear above, most notably the ruffled one piece- awesome!


 There were also some lovely evening wear numbers by Jacqueline Buck Couture and Daniel Alexander Couture. I adored these full length dramatic floaty dresses. I'm dying to get my hands on a maxi dress similar, the fluidity of the fabrics with the stunning cuts made for some audible runway side sighs!

By far my favourite pop-up stall of the night was the amazing collection from Unique Accessories. After wiping up my lust-have-it drool, I snapped a few piccys of my favourite items on display; After checking over my photos I decided my simple point and shoot didn't do them justice, so have stolen a few pictures from the website (here and here) ;)


The bohemian like statement piece were a real stand out. I think I may have freaked out the ladies running the stall (far right picture) with my oohing and ahhhing.


A huge thankyou to Suger and Dani for inviting me to the event, I had a blast! And of course, anytime I spend with Melissa is a good time- she cracks me up!


Dress: ASOS Curve
Stockings: We Love Colors
Side Bag: Kmart
Booties: Kmart
(Seriously has anyone looked in Kmart lately- they have some super cute stuff!!)

And what to wear to a fashion show???? Well I agonised let me tell you. In fact, I still hadn't made up my mind an hour before we left! It required some serious parading of 'narrowed down' outfits for Melissa and some of my girlfriends beforeI decided!

I chose this rad little Peter Pan collar lace dress. It's utterly fab. I love it. It's a little tight over my belly, but cute arm detailing and above knee length sold me! I rocked it with a high top notch- a hair style I've been living in this Summer! What would you wear to a fashion show???
