Well, the last few days have been a whirlwind of runways, meeting new people and getting dolled up for the Perth Fashion Festival. I am SO glad that I had the Thursday and Friday off work.
Thursday was the Restyle on the Runway event, where all the Restyle bloggers took to the catwalk to strut our op-shopped stuff. While I didn't get any photos of the whole event (besides these couple of dodgy iPhone photos my Mum sent me) due to actually being on the runway, you can check out the pictures on Jenelle's blog or over at Le Fanciulle. It was such a great event and I'm so happy to have been apart of it!
Last night was my first evening of the Perth Fashion Festival, and I was lucky enough to have media passes for two events, The WA Designers Collection and Designer Capsule #2. Of course, being my first time photographing a runway I had no idea what I was doing and tried to keep my cool pre-show as I desperately figured how I could make my photos turn out any good at all. It wasn't so bad though and I managed to get some decent shots - I will post these later this evening! All in all it was a great evening and I loved catching up with other Perth bloggers, and finally meeting a few familiar faces in person.
Now, for what I wore - photos by the lovely Laura from Peanut Moonbeam Knickers.

I had a play around with styling my hair with hot rollers again for the night. It actually turned out quite well, I love the more vintage look that comes from setting your hair in rollers.
Today I'm off to the Popsicle Mini Markets in Northbridge to have a look at some local designer wares. For me, the highlight of the Perth Fashion Festival is seeing all of the smaller-scale homegrown creative talent. I'm not really one to follow runway trends, but it's always lovely to see what's out there and gain style inspiration from wherever you can.
