Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival

I got my haircut! Yeh! It was desperately needing one. I went shorter than I first initially wanted but when I was sitting in the hairdresser I decided to go for it =)

Sorry about the photo I used a flash so its a bit overexposed. But I needed to get a picture of my hair while it was nice and styled before I wash it and it goes funny.

On Wednesday I had the pleasure of going to the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival. I went with my 3 close girl friends and we had such a great time!

We went off to the Queens PLaza High Tea and fashion showing. This was all held at the Hilton. Beautiful place.

Me, Kristina, Natalia, Laura. This is at the end of High Tea with a fashion showing. Bright colours, metallics, big jewellery, short hemlines, looks like a fun summer to me!!

Some of the lovely sweet food served. And the bag on top is a cake and was a prize.

A close up of some of fave food items. I loved the heart shaped on the bottom left. It was called the Chanel white chocolate and raspberry (something?). It's a shame I don't really remember the names of each food. They did have an Audrey Hepburn cucumber square. That was good. With the cream cheese and cucumber on top. It was all very lovely.

We were all drooling over this gorgeous black sapphire Canturi ring. The lovely Laura fashioned it nicely for us.

We had a little bit of time between the high tea and the nights fashion show. So we did a bit of shopping (my feet were killing me though!) and I took a sneaky photo of them looking at things. This was in Alannah Hill. She has a gorgeous website. And I do like her stuff but it's really hard to wear it all at once as it's very girly and you look too over the top with it all on. But a pretty top worn with something more basic would be alright. Unless you can pull off the look.

Still in Alannah Hill. Laura does some fantastic photography and she always gets us to pose.

We went and had dinner at JoJo's which I usually love though I wasn't too happy with my steak. Moh. But anyway, we had the Hardy Brothers Evening wear show at night. That too was a lovely show though shorter than we expected. This is us waiting to be let in as it was general admission we wanted to be at the top of the line.

All in all it was a fantastic day and we plan on having more outings with us girls. Which we talked about after the show.

This is the little gift bag we received at the High tea. Mainly a few magazines and little bits and pieces. It was nice to get something.

This is the one we got from the Hardy Brothers show. Again it was mainly magazines and things. It's all so messy on my bed.

And the last thing I want to show it some creations of mine. I made these for my three girls and tried to personalise it as much as possible to what they would like.

This one was for Kristina. The photos aren't the greatest as I was in a hurry to leave.

This was for Laura. The necklace is a delicate butterfly style charm.

For Natalia. She's more into green. And I love the green paper here.

I will leave my post here. I have a few other things I want to show but I will do that next time. xox

Hey good looking, the haircut looks great :)

Looks like you had a lot of fun at the fashion parade, and I bet the three girls loved what you made them. They're good looking note cards, maybe time for an etsy store :P

Hi, Gracie! You look absolutely gorgeous...your new haircut really frames your beautiful face and the dress + pumps you wore to the fashion show was truly sophisticated and fact all 4 of you looked like superstars! PS I agree with Jason...your cards are amazing and it maybe time to open that dream shoppe! Thanks for your sweet with you soon! xoxo Jo ;)

Darling I so loved the little gifts. You are the sweetest girl in all the world!

Love the things you made Gracie! OH wow your hair looks amazing! Just love it!!! All you girls look gorgeous. Fashion week was always such fun, when I was studying fashion I used to go help out dressing backstage at some of the shows, got to see a whole different side to the parade back there!
