MBFF 2009 Part 1

On Sunday and Monday night I went to two Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival shows. Sunday lunch time it was the swimwear show and last night it was a ready to wear group show. I went with two of my beautiful girls Laura and Kristina. I tried to take photos at the swimwear show but it was hard and I didn't use my zoom until later on. Plus it was a super hot day for winter. I regret that I was wearing jeans and not a dress like half the other girls that were there.

My absolute favourite swimsuit of the day! Laura and Kristina loved it too! Sorry my pictures are nowhere near as good as Laura's ones.

I just liked this. It looks exotic and makes me think of travelling and beaches in faraway places. Plus the colour is pretty.

I'm not a one-piece person but I don't mind this style. I wouldn't wear it but if I was to ever buy one. It would probably look something like this.

This was at the end of the show. When you see models it's hard not to want to exercise and feel as though my legs are short stumps (I guess in comparison they sort of are sigh). But it was a beautiful day as hot as it was.

I had to add this one so the bikini could be seen up close. We just loved it! I'm seriously thinking of buying it if I can ever visit one of the stores it's stocked in. Honeymoon bikini perhaps? (It's a way to justify the expensive price it's sure to be).

Afterwards we went to Kristina's place to hang for the rest of the day. She is such a great hostess. She made these brownies here.

And she made these mini cupcakes, and the two different type of cookies. YUM! It was so good. Catching up, eating yummy food and just hanging with the girls is a fantastic way to end the day. We haven't done that in so long.

Ok these next few photos are a bit of a montage. We took a few photos and they always ended up a bit funny.



I just adore these girls and I'm glad they will be with me on my wedding day. Our next plan is to watch the Coco Chanel movie and go shopping in a different side of Brisbane. We also planned a girls trip for overseas sometime. I've wanted to do that for awhile now.

I will have part two up soonish. It was about the show we watched last night =)
