Alice McCall Top and Skirt / Gianvito Rossi Heels

An afternoon spent nestled amongst these pretty petals in a sickly sweet two piece by Alice McCall. I wore this on the last day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia and the playful print of several high shine lip-glossed lips seemed refreshing enough to immediately draw my attention. I visited Alice’s showroom the weekend before where I secretly previewed her MBFWA collection and chose a runway ensemble to have duplicated to wear to her show. Not many Australian designers have the resources, time and budgets to do this, which is why I can appreciate Alice’s thoughtfulness all the more. I visited on Friday and my two piece was ready in a blink of an eye on Sunday. As in, the night before MBFWA… she just gets it done. Love a woman who’s proactive.

The exhaustion from fashion week usually overshadows its glamorous elements, so this particular print added some much needed gloss to the end of a very tiresome week. I couldn’t have been more ready to spend some time at home after traveling abroad for 3 months, and after a few cherished weeks to rest and recharge I’m more than ready to go again and, as always, take you all with me.
