TPFF: Restyle Runway Highlights

DSCF5904_result

Telstra Perth Fashion Festival has begun and amongst the many shows on offer is the Restyle parade. Restyle is a campaign that promotes op shopping, the ultimate way to simultaneously recycle and bargain hunt.  (You may remember we took part in 2012, such a long time ago now!)

This year the blog posts by our local bloggers were of an impressively high quality.  Instead of blabbing on about it, peek at Hannah's wrap up post here which has links to all the blogs and some of her favourite posts.  Take a look, it's worth it.

Today's parade saw Vicky, Jenelle, Hannah, Jacquelyn, Jocelyn, Demelza, Amy & Anna walking down the runway in their finds along with some op shop volunteers and Instagram-restylers.

Outfit: One Skirt, Two Ways

No point owning a skirt that only works with one type of outfit!!

lefanciulle (11 of 11).jpg

I scored this skirt at Westfield's #mosthunted event last week & wore it like this.
Midi skirt + boots + tshirt = perfect Saturday outfit

A few days later I mixed it up only slightly for the Perlu launch.
Midi skirt + fitted top + elegant flats = a simple evening outfit


If you love an item, wear it every day!  I'm going to follow this advice, specially as NYFW tells us midis are in.  Those of you going to TPFF, why not try wearing something you own, love, and have worn a thousand times, rather than making an unwise event-related purchase that you likely won't wear many more times?

Boutique Launch: Perlu

lefanciulle (5 of 11).jpg

PERLU
Defn: necessary, need

Perlu, Claremont's newest concept store, pushes the boundaries of the usual retail experience.
I remember years ago when online shopping began (she says, sounding like a grandma), people started to wonder what would happen to brick and mortar stores.  Well, we're starting to find out.  In this current climate of you-can-buy-everything-on-the-net, boutiques are beginning to provide more than just things to buy.

Perlu, for one, sells everything from locally designed jewellery to quirky swimwear and WA-made clothing, but also boasts in house alterations, custom cabinetry by Spencer Parks & complimentary hot beverages while you shop.  Oh and did I mention they have fresh blooms  by Ruby Tree Creative available on Fridays and Saturdays?  That's right.  It'd be hard to not have a good time shopping at Perlu whether you buy something or not.

Warning: you probably will buy something.

NYFW Spring RTW: Round-Up & Favourites

NYFW favourites

How many collages can you do in one Saturday?  Many if you're trying to not fall behind with the next batch coming from London Fashion Week!  I hope you've enjoyed my little posts - since I find that not keeping up to date with shows makes my interest wane, I thought I'd go about it creatively this year and share it with you.  

Delpozo caught my eye, as did Barbara Tfank; they were very different in terms of style and inspiration, but both sent out gorgeous dresses that were so different to what everyone else was showing.  The un-fitted signature look of the season was probably best done by The Row (in the super luxe version) and Tibi (the more sensible day-time option).  Notable mentions for me include Tome, Monique Lhuillier, and 3.1 Phillip Lim (my perennial favourite - check out the bucket bags that he sent down the runway!).  I didn't particularly enjoy Alexander Wang's show - the first few looks that came out just looked like Phillip Lim from 2012, and the trippy graphic print was a bit meh... but to each their own.  I'm also actually not a fan of Michael Kors because he is the master of being a copycat, but I've got to hand it to the guy - his runway looks were actually divine and wearable.  It's what you'd hope from the "ready-to-wear" collections I guess!

What shows were your favourites at NYFW?

NYFW Spring Trending: Loose & Low

NYFW loose

Call it action and reaction - there was hardly a sniff of any pin-hugging, skin-tight bottoms on the runway at NYFW.  Whilst it's not revolutionary in any way (and the palazzo pant already tried to elbow its way in with a few false starts over the past few years), it is now official: the baggier the better!  Choose your poison from knee-length shorts (eg. Milly - top left), the midi or 7/8th (Calvin Klein Collection's navy blue flared option is divine, as is Tibi's light-as-air striped concoction), or ankle-grazing lengths.  Go the whole-hog and full-length - my favourites being the Theory & The Row offerings.  And if you really want to jump feet-first into the trend, Delpozo's green offering is definitely not for the faint-hearted (or for those who don't mind looking like a Christmas tree).
