NZFW Part two ♥



"I want to make clothes that people will wear, not styles that will make a big splash on the runway."
- Oscar de la Renta




40 minutes. Yes 40 minutes. That's how late the ruby show was at NZ Fashion Week.

This face is not happy. And I wasn't even one of the unlucky people who were wearing heels waiting around in a line.
From all my NZFW posts you may have gotten the idea that I had a brilliant time at fashion weekend no? Wrong. 
The whole event was completely unorganised and really lacked the excitement I expected.
The decorations were unimpressive streamers, with twinkly lights from the ceiling
 and fake grass with a couple of white leather couches in an awkward corner. 
There was also so much advertised to be able to do at fashion week,
 but by 4:30 the Lash bar, Remix stand and the photobooth had closed before I had even got to them :(
Compared to NZ Fashion Festival (which was amazing!) fashion weekend was just... meh, for me.
Oh and did i mention that once we got into the Ruby and Liam show they had moved our seats
 so Erin and i were divided by the aisle and weren't even sitting together.

But i must say the ruby show was as fabulous as ever and
the Liam show (Rubys new sister label) was even more impressive!


 



And to finish off, just some photos Erin snapped after the show down by the waterfront of what I wore to the Ruby and Liam show.


Does anyone else have the same issues as me dressing for a fashion show? 
Or just any fashion event in general?
I mean sure you want to look fashionable and on trend,
but then you dont want to cross that line into the over trend
duplicated look, where you look like you have just copied an outfit
on a mannequin. There is always that fear you will look to mainstream
or too last season or just like your trying to hard.
I tried to stick with some of my vintage second hand items to make sure I stood out
a bit more.

  3. Your outfit looks great. I can understand you were a bit disappointed by those fashion shows, some are indeed not as glamourous as expected. The pics look great though!

  8. I think one should stay true to oneself, and not care that much about what everybody else is thinking. Good self-esteem looks great on anybody. I think your outfit is well put together! Thank you for leaving a kind comment on my blog!

  12. Awww, I'm sorry that NZFW isn't as wonderful as you thought it'd be--I sympathize completely! I hate it when hyped up events turn to be disorganized and late. And I appreciate that you're keeping it real! Anyway, digging the simplistic and fall-appropriate looks of Liam, and I love your outfit, especially that skirt!

    With love from San Francisco, California, USA,
