NZFW17

Being a fashion blogger, fashion week is THE place to be. It’s got everything; food, wine, music and the most important of it all- HIGH FASHION. This was the very first time I attended New Zealand Fashion Week and I felt like a child at a theme park. I wanted to experience EVERYTHING! I had to have their wine, their food and buy little knick knacks from the pop up stores. It felt like the right thing to do.

I got invited to three shows this year – Kate Sylvester, NZ Weddings Magazine and Flo and Frankie. Accompanying me to these shows was none other than my fiancé, who also is my photographer – had to keep him handy for a quick outfit shot on the day!

DAY THREE OF FASHION WEEK

Kate Sylvester, “Electric Dreams”, was one show I did not want to miss- and Kate delivered an amazing show! I was so wowed at her collection. Every piece that came on the runway had me drooling! There were so many colours, and the outfits that were put together were perfect with each little detail.

NZ Weddings Magazine fashion showcase was a collection of NZ designers and bridal wear boutiques for women and men. I got invited to the NZ Weddings Magazine show by Katie Yeung for Hera Couture and Daisy. Katie’s pieces on the runway blew me away. They were so simple, elegant and gave  that class to a bridal look. With my own wedding coming up, I took away so many ideas from her collection on the day! Below are some of my favourite shots that I took from the show (as you can see, I have something for the back of dresses <3 )

All in all the whole bridal wear show left me in awe! All the pieces on the runway from all the designers and bridal boutiques were immaculate <3

The final show for my NZFW experience was Flo and Frankie’s first ever runway show. The pieces from Flo and Frankie’s collections were so fun and uplifting and it felt great to be part of a vibrant fashion show. I would love to snag some of those pieces for my blog!

Rubi Shoes

Shoes are my own guilty pleasure. I own over a hundred pairs of shoes and am emotionally attached to every one of them. When Rubi Shoes approached me to feature their next and upcoming line of “Sock Boots” on my blog, I was quite excited. Having worn many of the Rubi Shoe brands in my teenage years, I knew how fun and stylish these pieces would be.

Having the perfect pair of shoes, for me, is the most important part of an outfit. It’s the essential finishing touch that pulls the whole look together. Sometimes, as long as your shoes are on point, you can even get away with some basic clothes.

Three easy but sassy looks for Valentines

With Valentines Day just a week away, I thought I would put together my 3 looks for your Valentine’s date <3

LOOK #1

Floral, Lace and Sass

Cape : Mirrou

Shoes : Novo
img_4992
Handbag: Farmers

This is my fave look out of the three, so for obvious reasons, I will talk about it first  😛

Floral and Lace <3 . The best two combinations that a girl can put together on an outfit; they practically complete each other! And what better way to woo your Valentine in one of your best floral number.

This is the floral look in particular that I chose to put together for the post. If you read waaaaaayy back to a blog post I made about a year ago, I LOVE capes! I think capes add a very glamorous touch to any simple outfit. Throw on a nice floral cape with lace hemming on a nude coloured dress and you have yourself a very flirty Valentine’s lunch outfit!

  • Hair
    • Pull your hair up in a low messy bun; pull some loose strands around your face to soften the look. This will take away from the bagginess of the cape and outfit.
  • Makeup
    • This being a day time outfit, it is nicer to compliment the lighter shades of the outfit with just Foundation, Concealer and Bronzer. Give yourself  winged eyes and smack on some “Cheerleader” HUDA Liquid Matte Gloss and you are good to go!
    • ( If you read my latest travel post to Sydney, you will see how CRAZY I went with shopping for make up and the “HUDA beauty liquid matte glosses” is my new fav thing! I will be making a post on how much I love them very soon! If you haven’t had a chance to read my blog post, here is the link => A Shopper’s guide to three days in Sydney)
  • Fragrance
    • Marc Jacobs Daisy Dream will add the finishing touch to your floral get up <3

 

LOOK #2

A Sweet and Simple Look

img_5028
Skirt : Glassons
img_5029
Cardigan : Forever New

img_5884

Nothing can beat a simple black and white duo. Grab a white tank top, tuck it in a black pencil midi length skirt and pair it with a grey cardigan. This look can’t be limited to one time of the day. You can rock this for an early morning breakfast date, a luncheon or even at the dinner table <3

  • Hair
    • A side bohemian braid on straight hair will do the perfect trick to add a little glam to your black and white combo
  • Makeup
    • Switch up the “Cheerleader HUDA liquid matte gloss” with something a little bold; having a simple outfit allows you to get away with some dark lips
      • Step 1 : Line and fill in your lips with “HUDA lip contour – Famous”
      • Step 2 : Go over with “HUDA liquid matte – Material Girl”
  • Fragrance
    • Marc Jacobs Decadence has an amazing spicy floral smell to it <3

 

LOOK #3

Rock your Playsuit

img_5006
Playsuit : Dotti
img_5013
Blazer : Chiffon Boutique

Playsuits are great; it gives you the feel of wearing a dress, but without the fear of them flying up in the wind ;p

Pair floral or colourful playsuit up with a black blazer, and you will be looking fashionably classy at your dinner date.

  • Hair
    • Having your hair out will take away from the staunclook of the blazer- your choice if you would like it straight or in waves
  • Makeup
    • Being a night time look, you can go heavy on your contouring by using a cream contour palette ( in this case I used my new fav ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS contour palette) underneath a powder bronzer.
    • I went back to using “Cheerleader HUDA liquid matte” for softer lip colour
  • Fragrance
    • I usually save my Ted Baker Langley perfume for my special nights out. It has a very strong spicy musk smell that I absolutely love which can be a bit heavy for day time wear.

 

Well there you have it! My three favourite looks for Valentines 2017. I hope these spark some great ideas for your dates!

Please let me know what you thought of the outfit ideas and what ideas of your own you have come up with!
