The busiest week in fashion is done and dusted and after an exciting (but exhausting) week of going to shows, I thought I’d round up my third NZ Fashion Week here on the blog. I went to 13 shows in total which is a feat for me since I attended shows in between work. This year’s fashion week has been the best so far and I have so many highlights.
I know we’re 2 weeks in September but I’ve only had a chance to reflect on the crazy month of August. Last month was the most hectic month I’ve had this year. Work was the busiest and I have NZ Fashion Week on top of that.
Despite all of that, I had some amazing times which I’ll go through on today’s post.
Highlights of 2015
I do a monthly highlights post here on the blog which is a look back on the great things that has happened in my life. This time, I looked back on the year just passed.
2015 was not the best year if I have to be quite honest. It was an emotional rollercoaster ride with plenty of ups and downs. I’m not going to dwell on the bad and will focus on the positives instead.
If you want to see the best parts of last year, continue below.
Thrifted Black Dress
I have been meaning to post this dress for quite a while but I waited to feature it in a thrift haul first. At long last, it’s here and I’m excited to share it today.
I wore this dress to NZ Fashion Week but styled it differently. Today’s outfit is more dressed up and all the details will be down below.
Designer Pop-up Sale Haul
I ended my NZ Fashion Weekend experience by going to NZ Fashion Weekend. NZ Fashion Weekend is open to the general public and getting tickets will give you access to the Designer Pop-up Sale. This was also previously called the Designer Garage Sale.
I was really excited to check it out this year and see what the fuss is about. I’ve heard great things about the sale and people getting amazing bargains.
I can tell you that it didn’t disappoint. I managed to have self control and only got two things from the sale.

NZFW: CLEO Presents RUBY & HOLY CHIC
This is my last runway post from NZ Fashion Week. It has been a few weeks already but I still wanted to share this. NYFW is on right now and I could only dream to watch a runway show there.
Anyway, this post is all about the CLEO Presents RUBY/HOLY CHIC/COOP show during the NZ Fashion Weekend. This is a great combination of three wonderful designers. This is the show that was most wearable to me and closest to my style. I loved the clothes I saw and want them all.

NZFW: Resene Designer Selection Show
It has been exactly 2 weeks since I went to NZ Fashion Week and my experience is still fresh in my mind. I have two runway show posts left so if you’re still interested, continue reading.
Today is all about the Resene Designer Selection Show. NZFW is quite exclusive to the fashion industry and delegates only. However, the DSS is open to the public and you can purchase tickets to the show. It was on from Wednesday to Saturday at different times.
It’s a great show to get an overview of the current designer collections. There’s something for everyone and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I watched the show from the front row so I managed to take a lot of photos.
August Instagram Snaps
Another month has passed so it’s time for another monthly Instagram roundup. August has been a hectic for me. It started up pretty mellow and then chaotic in the last week due to NZ Fashion Week. I’ve also been sick since last week which was not fun.

I watched a few shows during NZ Fashion week but I only managed to get a goodie bag during the Resene Designer Selection Show. The photos from that is coming in a few days but to break up all NZFW runway photos, I thought I’d post a haul of my NZFW goodies.
The Resene Designer Selection show was basically on every day during NZFW and it features a bunch of designers and a few clothes from their collections. I wasn’t able to get in backstage which pissed me off so I watched the show in front row instead. Also in spite, I got two goodie bags!
So if you’re like me who’s always interested on what’s inside goodie bags at events then check out the rest of this post.
The last New Zealand Fashion Week show I watched on Thursday was RUBY. It was the only off-site show I watched too and it was in a Wilson Carpark near K Road.
We had to be there early for the NZFW Backstage blog and when we got there, the two top levels of the car park was closed off for the show. It was un unusual place to have a runway but RUBY made it work.
