After a busy day of meetings yesterday, JD and I got dressed in record time and headed back into the City for Vogue Fashion Night Out. Last night I learned two things 1) not to wear silk in the car for too long, because, man that fabric can crease b) a portable steamer would be a very, very amazing invention.

This year was the busiest I have ever seen VFNO. There were so many fun activations on Pitt St, George St and Martin Place in Sydney; from beauty bars to complimentary blow-dries, flowing champagne to Sunglass Hut street dancers. It was such an electric atmosphere and it was amazing to see the whole city come alive in the name of fashion.


I spent the first half of our evening with Sunglass Hut on George St. First up, I got my hair braided. I don’t think I ever had braids as a child. I had unruly curls, so I think my Mum put braids in the “too hard” basket. That, and I cut all my hair off with crayola scissors at the age of three, so length was probably not in my favour. In the hope of preserving my hairdo overnight, I slept so, so still. For once I didn’t wake up with a dislodged duvet or JD complaining I had stolen all “his” covers.

I had my eye on so many glasses last night – particularly the Dior’s and Chanel’s in the below photos. A cute touch last night, was everyone would purchased sunglasses received a personalised sunglass case. I don’t know about you guys, but I am so obsessed with putting my initials on all my things.











I hope you enjoy my little photo diary of the night!
