Australian Fashion Guide at RAFW PLS like only 1 day left! :D

Australian Fashion Guide (AFG) embodies all things fashion apparently.

so they may be running a competition.... (AFG street style at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week)

perhaps check out there website here and like their facebook page here! :D

That way... you can like this pic of me (also pictured below) at Day 3 of RAFW. (mental note - must improve being in photo skillz)

it would be amazing if you humoured me and 'liked" my pic so I feel like less of a loser as they are running a competition based on votes - eek!! LAST DAY TO VOTE! argh!

Peace out,

x Lainy

ps - I'm ok with not winning... I just don't want to come last. :D (smile with teeth!)

Dear Diary

Dear Diary,

Yesterday I did a photoshoot. It was for Fashion Journal. Fashion Journal is a really good magazine. they are online too. Leah is the editor. This is a picture of us. She is really nice.

I worked with Benn Wood for the first time. I liked him alot even though he made fart noises all day. I want him to be my friend. He is a good photographer.

Monica Gingold is my friend. She did pretty make up on the module. The modules name is Sarah. She is with Scene. Scene has lots of modules.

Monica reckons I have surfacia like her friend - a disorder that people have when they cover every surface with stuff. Surfacia is not in the wikipedia so it's not true. I'm sure Monica's friend just made it up.

My other friend is also my assistant. His name is Julian. He is a good assistant. He wore his Loubitin's. He got them from Mr Porter

That made me feel jealous. I think I need these to make me feel better about my life.

(Jeffrey Campbell available at Apex Shoes!)

I had a second assistant too. He is on work experience. His name is Max. He has a blog. His blog is really cool.

this is some of the clothes I used in my photoshoot.

I can't wait for the full shoot to be out next week - ish.

Thank you for listening Mr Diary, you are the best. The End.

Ms Couture @ RAFW

oooh la la.

I have decided that I need Ms Couture in and around my life...
pretty sure it will help with my love life :D

Peace out,

ps - pics kindly provided by mother and father pr.

Heartbreak (not RAFW related or maybe kinda)

My mania mania ring.

Obviously its not meant to be taken apart/ be in two pieces.

despite the above I still heart mania mania alot alot.

It slipped off my finger at the Saint Augustine Academy After Party - DOH! (on the plus side does that mean my finger is skinnier!? hmmm)


Got me on so many levels. Leather, tassels - gets me every time.

(pics care of Mother and Father PR - love them alot too)

My friend (Cherry Tree Road) provided accessories too - Banging!)

The Drum's sat front row. So did i.

And according to the drums/ pedestrian tv ...

"We love SAA and we want to do the soundtrack for their next show." cute.

speak of cute. Alvin is super cute. And a fellow Filipino! I proclaimed undying love for SAA at afterparty. not so cute.

and since this is a post on heartbreak...

my ex got married a little while ago... obviously to someone else. apparently its affected me ... as i keep banging on about it. (and now blogging - awesome) its just a shame. I could've worn this dress.

lucky I've got adele to make me feel better about life.


Peace out

I'm going to attempt to blog... about random snippets from last week/ RAFW ...

starting with this.

If you do make it to the end of the clip....
Perfect example of why I should never be in front of the camera!
Pretty sure they ambushed me and pretty sure i was talking about the wrong label - oops!

was talking about none the richer below - eek!

(Heart a cross)

But to redeem myself ...

After looking back at the pics my rockstar friend (and photographer)Amanda Fordyce (love you!) gave me below ... I quite like/ heart Guanabana too (although the snake did distract me from looking at the outfit - another oops!)

peace out ...
