Coat - Marvin
Pants - Neon Hart
Bag - Oroton
Shoes - Topshop
Stack rings & sunglasses - Sportsgirl

I received an invite to a show at MBFWA in the mail today and that's when it really hit home - I'm not going to Fashion Week. I'm not going to Fashion Week because I'll be in Bali... eating banana pancakes and sipping on cocktails at Ku De Ta

Of course, I'll be living vicariously through the marvelous blogs of my fellow Aussies and the international superstars who are due to hit our shores for the big event (hello Susie Bubble!). But, the fact of the matter is, it's just not the same. All the online coverage, blog photos and street style snaps on the WWW just can't capture the truly exhilerating essence of being there in the flesh. 

As a consolation, I decided to play dress ups and hypothetically plan my outfits anyway. 

So, here is day one - dressed in a dreamy tailored coat with leather detail by Sydney label Marvin and one of my two favourite new pairs of pants (the second pair are for day two, hold your horses!). 

Seriously, the coat is what dreams are made of! Marvin have nailed it with the oversized fit and leather arm panels.  

What are you planning to wear to Fashion Week? Tell me, I promise I won't get jealous or be hatin'. x

I like you. Let's be friends:

Deciding what I'm wearing for fashion week has been the most stressful thing. :(

That coat is beautiful! Had to check out the label & now I just want everything! Gorgeous collection!
I've been thinking about getting those Topshop sandals for a while & now you've just sold me on them! :)

That coat is ridiculously great.

So sad you won't be at MBFWA but you'll definitely be there in spirit. On the plus side, you'll also have a rad tan when you get back and we'll as be pasty as.

That coat is to die for!!
