COMMENT: There is a bunch of stress that goes into orchestrating VAMFF from Perth. There’s the outfits, the accessories for styling, the technical items. The packing is a huge stress, one which I anxiously achieve three days before I even fly out. And then there’s leaving my baby and toddler. That’s a stress like no other. To say arriving at the Adelphi Hotel, located on Flinder’s Lane, was a relief, is an extreme understatement. This beautiful boutique hotel created a home away from home, with snacks galore, and the biggest bathroom imaginable- exactly what’s needed with all of the VAMFF prep this week entails. They have recently reopened their rooftop pool deck- which is a serious oasis smack bang in the heart of Melbourne’s CBD. As luck had it, Melbourne turned on the hot weather and total blue skies for the duration of my stay. I couldn’t fault this joint. Adelphi was my base and my home for VAMFF, and everything in between.
