I have saved this Spijkers en Spijkers jumpsuit to wear at RAFW, it is one of my favourite onesies. The Dutch sisters made me this wool jumpsuit especially because our boutique got it in black, but I still think the caramel rocks. It looks amazing with a puss-bow blouse underneath, next time! I teamed it with a wool Chloe jacket I bought from theOutnet, my Sonia Rykiel pumps and a vintage bag (for the ipad). Wearing MAWI necklace and ring, also seen here.
Seeing Leeyong from Style Wilderness and Phoebe, aka Lady Melbourne brought sunshine to my morning, for Day 4 of RAFW. ‘Tis good to see Melbournians in Sydney! Leeyong is one of the most creative ladies I have ever met. She made her earrings, to see how, see here. She made the fringe wrap around her shoes herself from her leather skirt! From one clever beauty to the other, Lady Melbourne is the epitome of chic with her beige and blue ensemble. I joked with her saying that her ankle support strap is actually really cute, I would wear the pair in black! So we laughed about rushing to the pharmacist and pretend that we have sprained both of f our ankles.
I met veteran blogger Helen from Sassy Bella from Day One, but only now I got a chance to be photographed with her. She always has a crowd around her. Her two toned shoes are super super sweet!
Another lady I was trying to get a hold of all week at Rosemount was the Fashion Editor of the Age, Janice BreenBurns. Judging by her tweets, I knew she was here in Sydney, but it was only a visit to backstage to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to the Talented Miss Yeojin Bae, that I got to catch up with Janice. She was busy interviewing Yeojin about her show-stopping collection.
By the 4th day of RAFW, I had nearly finished up with my buying appointments so had more time to hang out with my friends and meet new blogger friends. Here is Joelyne, The Sydney Girl, in her insanely hot leather skirt. But I know that you are admiring her pink socks! J’adore! I am featured in this post of hers. Her pictures are much better than mine. It was such a pleasure to photograph all the fashion elites and to introduce myself to them. My favourite response from them was not ‘Oh I love your _____’, it was’ Oh I’ve heard of your blog!’ That made my week.
Thank you so much for reading my blog and for following my peculiar life. As far as I know, there is no other vet out there who has branched into fashion like I have. I have been incredibly blessed to be given all these amazing opportunities. And if you are a vet who has opened her boutique, let me know! It’s been an absolute pleasure sharing my experiences and adventures with you. It makes me smile knowing that you are reading. And hopefully you are smiling too.
I’m wearing: Spijkers en Spijkers wool jumpsuit (available in black from our boutique), Chloe jacket, Mawi necklace and ring (available here), Viktor & Rolf silk bracelet, Sonia Rykiel pumps, vintage shades and bag
