So I’m off to Fashion Week next week – blogging for Maybelline New York. Which I’m just a teensy bit excited about.
I can’t wait to get up close and personal with the predicted spring-summer beauty and fashion trends.
You know I’m all about keeping it real here on Styling You – so my aim will be to take what I see backstage and on the catwalk and translate it back to the stuff we’d actually wear or put on our face.
Should be simple, right?
Well, yes, it would be, except, oh my, I’m going to be mixing it with the uber-stylish fashion and beauty pack.
These girls and guys – whether they’re bloggers or journos – know their schiz.
OK, so I may know some schiz too but these guys very much LOOK the part. They “speak” fashion every day and have a wardrobe to match. They’ve been planning their MBAFW wardrobe for weeks and have an “It” bag to prove it.
And therein lies my First World problem.
I live at the beach and spend the majority of my time staring at a computer screen. I do casual VERY WELL. Yes, I do. But unfortunately beach casual ain’t quite going to cut it next week – except perhaps when I’m back in my hotel room ordering room service.
So, I had a look-see in my wardrobe and decided that I could actually swing a bit of a Fashion Week uniform out of my growing collection of coloured jeans and jackets. I’d just need a couple of “key” items to pep it all up and make me look kind of Fashion Weeky.
Here’s what I’ve bought:
Coincidentally they’re all by Gorman … and all on sale. But I figure supporting an Australian designer is the way to go for Australian Fashion Week. Don’t you think?
Now, you remember how this Shopping Confessions post works, don’t you?
I’m now handing it over to you … let the comments section be your shopping confessional. Tell me what you’ve bought lately?
Share something lovely … fashion pieces, makeup, skincare, something nice for the house. Was it a bargain? Had you been looking for something like it for a long time?
