MBFWA outfit, day 2.

Tuesday, 16 April 2013

{Lace bomber jacket - Cameo c/o Lalabazaar; skirt - H&M; top - Finders Keepers; clutch - MNO.logie; shoes - YSL}
 I rarely dress so effeminately on a day-today basis but if MBFWA isn't an appropriate context to channel one's inner sartorial cream puff with exaggerated ruffled hems and lacey bomber jackets in an all-white palette, then I certainly do not know where else on golly earth one may indulge in such extravagances. The key to colour-block dressing is ensuring that there is plenty of detail to catch the eye and perhaps just the slightest pop of colour, whether it be a smear of orange lipstick (mine was done by the lovely ladies at Maybelline), neon nails, or a bold statement accessory. 

My first experience of MBFWA may well and truly be over but that is not to say that the adventure ends there! After a weekend of my final ED shifts (morose goodbyes on my part, I loved my time there), last-minute rendezvous with friends, and frantic packing in between, I am finally in New York! Couldn't have asked for a more spectacular greeting as I arrived in my gorgeous hotel The Bentley with a dazzling view of the glittery New York skyline at dusk. 

Keep updated with adventures via Instagram (find me! frocks_frivolities). <3

  8. THAT CAMEO BOMBER!! It looks amazing on you!
    I agree with you ... if fashion week isn't an excuse to wear your most outrageous pieces, I don't know what is.

  18. oh, that jacket again. I'm glad you show it so often because it looks fabulous and it's always nice to see different variations while using the same key piece. I'm surprised the skirt is from H&M, totally looks like some fancy designer piece ;) and I also like the contrast between your white clothes and dark hair.
    take care, Mandy!
