+DIARY OF A FASHION WEEK HOE //: DAY 1

Well as you all know its that time of year again,
where we wake up at 5.30 each morning to create envy worthy out-fits, eat only lettuce leaves, 
stock up on party feet gel pads, do a million air-kisses per day,
tweet and facebook the fuck out of ourselves, drink a million bottles of san pellegrino,
spend thousands on cab rides,  run from one hotel suite to another then back down to 
Circular Quay in a matter of minutes, 
 pretend to remember ppl faces (when really we have no idea who the f they are?)
and most importantly we get to preview up coming collections for 
Spring Summer 12/13.
Welcome to Mercedes- Benz Fashion Week Australia

Im sure most bloggers go full on and talk shit about "how amazeballs" each show is and
how "its totes the highlight of the week" but seeing as im not really
a blogger im going to take you on a buyers ride of the fashion week train.

I don't go to a zillion shows, cos really whats the point? Im here to view to buy, not to be seen or photographed at as many shows as possibly looking cool as fuck. 
Not my scene at all. Call me weird.
My week is all about showings, showings, showings, 4 runway shows and more showings.
Shangri La is my new hang out.

So after molesting my wardrobe and throwing every cool underground label and designer piece i own on the bed, i had a fun yet tiring and stressful morning trying to come up with some 
fun outfits. Must admit todays is pretty tamed as i only had showings-
don't wanna waste all the good outfits haha





+Wearing: Motel pants, Dotti yellow boots (these will be getting a big work out this week), Therese Rawsthorne jacket, i.d.s black tank, vintage Mochino bag, My Secret Agent Lover Man necklace,
Ysl ring, Prada Sunglassses & my Apple ipad ofcourse!
