We've had these tickets to see Foals for about 5 months now, just sitting there, waiting for the actual concert. Last night was finally the time to bust those bad boys out from the drawer and actually use them. I was really excited when I found out Alpine were supporting Foals because they're an amazing up and coming Aussie band with some great summery tracks. I've been listening to their album A Is For Alpine for months now. They definitely didn't disappoint. I was super impressed with how well the 2 lead singers' voices worked together.

So in attempt to fill time, Fran and I decided it would be a fun idea to go to the Botanic Gardens. They're literally 5 minutes out of the city and free to wander around, so it was the perfect time filler. I haven't been there since I was in primary school so Fran lead the way. It is such a peaceful place with pine forests, bamboo forests and rainforests all in the one place. It was like we were walking between continents.

If there's one thing Melbourne loves it's markets, and a new one has just sprung up on the ever so trendy Greville Street in Prahran. Soaking in the warm Spring sun, we strolled down the little designer market admiring the wares. One of my favourite designers Limedrop was there and I tried on their new rainbow 'Funglasses' (see what they did there :)). They tinted the world a different colour depending on how the light was reflecting off them.

Whenever I do an outfit post I feel like yelling "Look guys! I wear clothes!" Because let's face it, I'm not a great fashion blogger. Also it's meant to be Spring now and I hardly think black and brown are Spring colours. But this is what I decided to wear haha. My best friend and I spent the afternoon at hardware stores looking for materials for her uni course. I looked a little out of place but it was still a fun adventure.

Melbourne Spring Fashion Week is over for another year and I really didn't get to go to much. A bit because I was working, and a bit because I'm lazy. Also, I just got a new camera! A spanky DSLR! I wanted to test it out when I was in the city on the weekend so here's some photos of the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week festival hub.

When I found out that my shift at work had been changed from Friday to Saturday, I was so excited because I knew I could go to the Review runway show. Review always reminds me that Spring is here with it's gorgeous girly pieces and playful accessories. This year was no different. My favourite look would have to be the blue and white floral pant and peplum top combination pictured below. Although I could never pull it off. I had to bust out my old camera for this post because it takes better movement shots than my other one. I wish I had it with me for my previous post.

Recently, Fran (Then Lets Begin) and I went to the Made In Melbourne runway show. As much as I like the big, main runway shows, I thought it would be fun to go support some local talent. This was also the first time Fran had ever been to a runway show, so she was like a kid in a candy store. Unfortunately we both didn't get decent photos because our cameras can't take photos of movement, so we pulled together and put up the best photos we got.

One event that's always a must-see at the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week is the student and emerging designers exhibition. This is because they don't need to stay within the constrains of being 100% wearable, they can let their creative juices flow and, in turn, produce some fascinating and original pieces. This year's exhibition is called The Exhibition and is at the Melbourne Town Hall until 8th of September. Go check it out between shows or in your lunch break at work - it's free!

Spring has finally arrived in the Southern half of the globe, which means only one thing in my city, it's Melbourne Spring Fashion Week time! I was invited by the lovely and enthusiastic Elsje of ElandTINO to come have a peak at some talented local Melbourne designers at the launch party for their MSFW POP It pop up shop! I love supporting local talent, so of course I went along!
