Running With The Fash Pack....Australian Fashion Week 2010

Hannah-Rose, captured, twice.

Hannah has a lovely blog called Capture the Castle. She writes beautifully (she is a media student), gathers together gorgeous photographs and while she utterly adores fashion, you can tell she is interested in things other than just clothes (which I think is completely essential). I got to spend some time with Hannah and her friends during Australian Fashion Week where they entertained me with their thoughts on Gossip Girl (or was it The Hills?), the desirability of a PS1 bag, the fabulousness of all things Dion Lee, where to shop in Sydney now
(Lands End- apparently the sales are awesome) and taught me how to survive fashion week in Sydney (lots of sangria and wine at Cruise Bar, apparently!).

  1. She is gorgeous! I love her 2nd outfit.

  2. @E is for Eleanor- she is isn't she! And super smart and funny as well (oh, and she's only 19 :)). I love the way she has rolled up her sleeves on the trench in the first outfit- it beats cutting the sleeves off and then trying to reattach them if you don't like the look!

    I really like her belted jacket in the 2nd look as well- it is something I would wear.

  8. Those boots are divine, especially with the peeping socks. I absolutely love these photos. Always have a soft spot for shallow focus :)

  13. @hannah- yay!! So glad you saw the photos hannah and am even gladder (is that even a word?!) that I brightened up your exam prep time :) Oooo cool re your skirt! I went to Lands End on the Friday afternoon of fashion week and it was brilliant- she has a really great, edited collection in there...and her pup is so cute as well! What brand was the coat Hannah????? Can you recall?

    Thanks everyone else for your lovely comments- I am sure Hannah appreciated them as well :)

    @BB- I know! She put everything together so well. I find that I have a lot of separates in my wardrobe but never quite know what to wear with what. I get confused.....and so mostly give up.

  14. Gladder works fine for me haha! I know, isn't the store incredible? The edit is perfect, I find that she always gets in the pieces I want (but obviously, can't afford, but want to look at at least haha) and she never over-buys. The store is never too packed with stock, and she has a lot of labels there. It is intense, but perfect. Their sale has just started! you're missing out on all the good bargains!! next time :). And where Lands End is, that's just right around the corner from my house. So on the plus side, the PS1s are always within reach when i need to hold one in my hands, but on the minus side i am wayyyy too close to that store for my bank account's liking haha. The coat is by Opening Ceremony. and yes, thankyou everyone for saying such lovely things, it means a lot.

  15. @hannah-rose- Oooo love Opening Ceremony!! Did you like those sort of clog-like boots everyone was wearing last year from Opening Ceremony? Yes, I really liked how Jane had everything set out and not toooo much stuff to confuse people like me!

  16. I actually did like the clog boots a lot, the little studs/rivets/whatever they were were so cute. wish i could have snagged a pair somehow. :)
