Before I start this post, I just want a show of hands for anyone who has made a friend through Instagram. Because I have. In fact I’ve found some of my most like minded friends were made through Instagram. Is that weird? Or is this the future of social media? Anyway, meet my Instagram friend Alice, of Alice Or Jewellery.
Last week I finally managed to get myself to see ONE Melbourne Fashion Week show. Usually – being my favourite time of year – I try to get in early with tickets to ensure I’m seeing all my favourite designers. But this year I failed at the planning aspect and forgot until the last minute. Fortunately I did get to the Close Show in a god damn incredible dress which got me many compliments.
Can you believe how quick this year has gone?! It’s time to do some mental fashion prep for the new year! Which is extra important for me since I have a fashion label to design so it pays to know what fashion trends for 2017 look like. I’m always trying to suss out what fashion trends people are loving, what fashion trends have over stayed their welcome and which are here to stay.
As I’ve been doing my rounds around the different race day events in Melbourne I thought it might be nice to write a little something about my favourite spring racing fashion brands and hopefully help other race-goes learn that spring racing fashion doesn’t have to send you broke – I don’t have a job after all, so for me it’s important to be budget conscious!
As someone who doesn’t technically have a ‘real job’ that pays me regular income, Dress rental boutiques like Style Theory are my saving grace when it comes to races season – or any special occasion really!
My name is Erin and I’m the owner/writer/creator of this website. Here you can find everything girly from beauty to fashion and places I like to go. My life is a constant struggle between wanting to look good while trying to be a responsible adult who has bills and grown up priorities.
I’ve worked for 7+ years in the fashion retail industry but prior to that I went to RMIT where I completed a Diploma Of Fashion. I’ve always had a love for fashion, trends and beauty which eventually turned into a little hobby which is this blog. I write about things I love, reviews, outfits I wear, beauty products and places I like to go out for eats/drinks.
And yes I’m the girl from Channel 9’s Married At First Sight.
Happy reading xo
