I have never been a fan of dainty floral, feminine prints... it just isn't me. However – I do like abstract and touch/feely 3D floral kinds ie. this colourful, watercolour skirt and cropped, sheer top. I wore this ensemble during Day 4 of MBFWA. The skirt is in fact part of a two-piece outfit I picked up at St Vinnies for $8. The punchy, bright print caught my eye - if you've been reading my blog for a while, you might remember the matching top worn here. I don't think I could ever pull off wearing both pieces together, that's definitely a challenge I'm willing to give any daring dresser! It peaked 28 degrees that day so the cropped top and sheer fabric gave me some relief whilst my friends and I visited showrooms/lunched in Surry Hills and fled back to Carriageworks for PM shows. T'was a busy day  followed by the 'A year in the life of Facehunter' after party at The Backroom - Oh yea, did I tell you I got snapped by Yvan Rodic at 8:30am that morning?! Felt quite vulnerable since I didn't have my morning coffee yet and was in recovery mode from a previous night of after parties and dranks at The Passage. The result turned out okay I think haha. If there's one thing I've learnt from fashion week, it's taking another few days off to recover.

On a more recent note, I've been super busy with work and freelancing on the side which is merely why I haven't posted on here for a while. But that doesn't mean I don't have any new updates to share with you. Here are my top three!

1. I purchased tickets to HAIM and James Blake July sideshows. I love, love HAIM! These sisters have also been featured in the latest ASOS magazine. Can't wait to dance around with my hands in the air to Forever. (sick remix track below) If you want to hear some magic in the Sydney Opera House, there's still some tix left for James Blake here.

2. The awesome guys at private driver service UBER have told me that I'm a "perfect passenger" and have issued me a $10 off promo code to share with everybody! Enter the code 'mbbeo' during registration and you will be granted $10 credit to use for your very first UBER ride. UBER is pretty much a fancy, black car service powered by an app that will pick you up at any destination, allowing you to arrive or leave in style. They are pricier than a standard taxi, but if you want the convenience these guys will save the day/night! For those residing in Sydney and Melbourne, register here and get $10 off! 

3. Some cool Japanese guy made a cat font. Enjoy nekofont !

Hope you all had a pleasant weekend! I spent my Saturday afternoon and evening watching the entire first season of Game Of Thrones and I am hooked! Slow to get onto the bandwagon I know, but that's a solid effort I say!

Peace out! x L
