Fashion Week started calmly for the Kees. We had friends over for dinner on Sunday night and it was quite a sweet and domesticated affair. Thanks to Bugaboo, all 4 of us, Chian, Winston, I and our Bugaboo Cameleon pram made it safely to Sydney. And our airbnb apartment is a dream! I promise to show you photos of it in the coming days.
Day Two highlights included meeting bloggers (hello dear Kiri from Fashion Blender, see ab0ve) catching up with friends (it was so good to finally meet all 4 boys from Four Eyes blog), drooling over all the chic streetstyle (check out Montana McDonald’s white shirt dress and Celine sandals ensemble, my favourite look of the day! And Lee Olivera’s denim overalls, I need to raid Zara men’s section quick smart!) and admiring everything from the Bec & Bridge runway show. I knew it was going to be an incredible collection just by looking at the indigo shades backstage, but of course, there’s nothing quite like appreciating the pieces in real life, on professional clothes horses.
The point of this trip was to travel “in style” with a new bub. But unfortunately, due to various spanners-in-works, “How to travel in style with a newborn” quickly became “How to travel in style with a newborn, a broken phone and food poisoning”. This proved somewhat more challenging than the original brief and the third day of fashion week was almost a writeoff, except for a delightful interview with Julie Tran at the Four Seasons that I (almost literally) dragged myself to. In my delirium, I might have described my work ethic as “heads down, thumbs up”, which I’m pretty sure is a primary school game, rather than the phrase I was looking for. Hubby thinks it will catch on anyway.
Thankfully, I was ably assisted by my four-armed photographer (below), who brought you all of the photos in this post, and made me some chicken congee to help me back on my feet. Fashion Week Day Four, here I come!

[spoiler title=”中文版”]我们一家轻松地开始了时装周。周日和朋友们在我家的聚餐也即甜蜜又温馨。感谢Bugaboo让我们一家四口包括Chian,Winston,我和我们的Bugaboo婴儿推车可以安全的到达Sydney. 我们居住在梦幻般的airbnb里。我向大家保证未来几天一定给你们看airbnb的相片。时装周第二天最精彩的部分包括约见朋友（真是很高兴终于可以见到4Eyes博客的4位作者），看时尚街头风看到流口水（我最爱的就是Montana McDonald的白色衬衫裙和Celine凉鞋搭配！还有Lee Olivera的全身牛仔风，我觉得应该要赶快打劫Zara男装部！）还有就是欣赏Bec & Bridge的时装秀。只看他们靛蓝色的舞台我知道这会是一场不可思议的系列，当然没有什么可以比拟在现场看专业模特来演绎这些服装。
