COMMENT: We remember the days when we could justify dropping $600 on one dress. You could tell yourself then it will be worn to three weddings and one birthday and no one would know that this designer dress was currently on high rotation. The odd tagged Facebook image was our biggest concern. Those were the days! Today, it’s just impractical to regularly spend huge amounts on one piece. Every event/function/night out turns into a social media situation and the dress has been seen across the globe before the night is over! Perhaps we’ve been living under a fashion rock but we have only just discovered GlamCorner, which sets itself apart by lending our ultimate designers. Here we have access to a host of our favourite labels including Self Portrait, Ellery, Maticevski, Balmain and Dolce & Gabbana. Surely this is the easiest way to get designer pieces at a fraction of their retail value for every major event (we literally couldn’t believe the limitless range online). So nice to have discovered you GlamCorner… we’re already plotting what our next borrowing move will be.

Nikki: Ivy Blue Dyspnea Slip. Sneakers; Dept. of Finery.

COMMENT: Karla Špetić kicked off Tuesday with an ode to the Croatian hot-spot, Dubrovnik. The collection had hints of the Mediterranean throughout with the prettiest frills on the fronts of the dresses (we noticed the Bergdolf Goodman buyers next to us noting these pieces). Tonnes of strong fashion moments were scattered throughout this resort collection. By Johnny was next with a series of stunning metallic dresses and separates that were an unexpected twist from seasons past. As Designer Johnny Schembri explains “Think holiday dressing with fluid hem lines and a lot of moment throughout. The collection has simple shapes and a muted colour palette all inspired by the ease of the season.” It was a large-scale production for a number of reasons- including the set design, the runway’s length and the show’s impressive guest list. Bec & Bridge seem to create news-worthy collections each season and this one was no exception. They had us with the fluid, liquidy silky blush-toned slips. They sure know how to nail a trend yet make it their own.

STYLE: Top; L’academie via Revolve. Jeans; GRLFRND via Revolve. Bag; Avalina Leather.
COMMENT: Key staples are what I am all about at the moment. A good pair (well, Nanna might not consider them ‘good’) of on-trend ripped black jeans will go with any top in your wardrobe. Ok, you might not be able to wear them to the office, but you can easily dress them up or down for pretty much every other occasion. With this particular pair I’ve been wearing this military style top to death. I find it’s casual enough for daytime activities, yet the gold hardware and loose fit make it classy enough to wear to night events as well. Basically, I’m lazy, and the less outfit changes in a day the better if you ask me!

LOCATION: Brookfield Place, Perth.

STYLE: Jacket; Grlfrnd via Revolve. Shorts; Lovers + Friends via Revolve. Heels; Chloé.

COMMENT: I’m not ashamed to confess that I’m into the 90’s the way my dad is into the 60’s. He listens to The Rolling Stones, I listen to Guns N’ Roses. On repeat. Constantly. Naturally I have become obbsessed with my new 90’s denim jacket. I’ve had a few in my time and was naive enough to ditch my previous denim edition that my husband gave me for my 18th. I didn’t have the foresight to believe I would be wearing denim jackets in the future- live and learn people! These days I’m extra picky with my wardrobe choices, especially the piece’s fit. This cropped jacket with frayed edges is my idea of denim heaven. Actually, I’m currently wearing it whilst writing this onboard my flight home from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia. Now, call me crazy, but I’m fairly certain the people seated in the rows surrounding me are checking out my jacket. Well, that or my screaming infant. One thing is for sure, I won’t be ditching my denim this time around!
