Dressed to the Nines | DTT9 Style

Fashion doesn’t have rules, however, I do think that everyone should know their style and give it their all.
The way I see clothing is like armour, to get through my day aka the battle; the hustle.
When you are wearing something you feel amazing in, it changes your perspective and mood. And there is nothing shallow about that! I know not everyone will agree with me, but this is merely my interpretation.
Having confidence in your style and owning it is more about your attitude than your clothing.
When you are confident in what you are wearing, it makes you confident in what you are doing.
Confidence is more attractive than anything you can put on your body.
You could probably do your job in a garbage bag, but I know that I kick-ass more at work when I am wearing a hot pair of heels and a bold coloured lipstick, than when I’m not.

I love fashion trends as much as the next fashionista. However, there are classic elements I love to wear no matter whether they are featured in the latest edition of Vogue or 5 seasons ago.

Here are some of my favorite timeless fashion elements that will be in my wardrobe in years to come, and are worth investing in. And yes, they are all black 🙂

Highlights of Melbourne Fashion Festival 2017

The warm weather days are sadly reducing, and will soon be a distant memory, if not already.
Luckily I am so excited for the fashion that will be rolled out this winter! VAMFF’s premium runways this year were truly spectacular. I love seeing each brands rendition of the forecasted trends. We are so lucky to live in a fashion-forward city where gorgeous clothing is readily available and valued by all in Melbourne.

Melbourne Fashion Festival was seriously the best this year. And the trends that were showcased by our favourite Australian brands are next level.
The stand-out runways were Premium Runways 3 and the Camilla and Marc Runway. The pre-show marquees were of a higher standard this year too. My personal favourites were Westfield’s Mirror Mirror stand, and the Mist Wood Gin stand! Yum!

Camilla and Marc’s runway was pretty special. Even though they didn’t integrate bubbles, they didn’t have lux pink carpet as the runway!  Nice touch team!
The festival certainly grew my wish list and my overall appreciation of women’s fashion.

Below are some of the key trends I am excited for this Winter. And if you attended VAMFF too, let me know what you loved.
