Tonight I packed my bag for MBFWA. This year, it’s especially hard to pack, as I will be staying in Sydney for a further five weeks for training for a new job. So, that’s a lot of clothes. I haven’t packed luggage for a six week stint in many years – it turns out I’m still no good at it! But anyway, this is one of my favourite pieces in my wardrobe at the moment. It is technically a light jacket, but I’m currently obsessed with wearing it like this, as a dress. If I use a thin black belt, its barely noticeable, and all that is focussed on is the excellent drapery, especially around the décolletage area. So beautiful. The shoes are a 90’s slingback mule, beautiful soft leather.
Both are beautiful gifts from a friend of mine who I recently worked on a shoot with, Emily from Red House Vintage. Understatement of the millenium: Emily has an incredible talent for vintage goods. The pieces she manages to find (god knows how!) are just incredible, and more unique, on-trend, and flattering than most vintage stores. Red House Vintage is regularly at Gilles St Markets in Adelaide – if you get a chance, I’d highly recommend going and browsing through. By far one of my favourite vintage stores in Adelaide!

Im in love with this entire outfit. I avoided this type of drapery and black essentialism for such a long time. I cannot for the life of me remember why. Now, there is no looking back. I’ve started a love affair.
The shoot Emily and I worked on together is a very special something coming up – a collaboration between both of our creative crazy brain cells. I would love to share with you all right now. But I can’t; not just yet anyway. Soon, I promise. Keep your eyes peeled!
See you at MBFWA beauties; I must sleep now, so I don’t miss my flight tomorrow.
