The Lip Lab - Ballarat

So last night all my dreams came true! I had the opportunity to design my own signature lipstick. How many countless hours have I spent in search of the perfect lipstick to match an outfit? I can gladly say my searching days are over thanks to the opening of The Lip Lab Ballarat.

Bendigo Fashion Festival - Race Day

Have you ever been to an event where you just felt completely out of place? Admittedly it doesn’t happen to me often but when it does, I find it really difficult to manage my anxiety. I recently went to an event where I felt very out of place. 

A few weeks ago my sister and I won a competition to attend the Bendigo Fashion Festival Raceday Luncheon. I had completely forgotten that I had entered the competition and we found out that we had won in the week prior to the event. The event was also not long after my stint of illness, being unable to eat and “letting myself go” (see my previous post here).

MSWF Ballarat Cocktail Party

A few weeks back on a Friday night I attended the ‘Behind the Scenes Cocktail Party’ for the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week Regional Extension in Ballarat. 

The night allowed guests the opportunity to attend the trunk show before the weekend commenced and meet and shop directly from local designers as well as retail stores that stock high fashion. The highlight of the night was going back stage and chatting to stylists, such as the talented Bec Cole, about the show production, the garments and styling.

MSFW Ballarat Runway

This weekend Ballarat hosted a regional series for Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW). The only regional city to host events with MSFW, Ballarat went all out running a number of functions over the weekend. Attending fashion week is not new to me as I have been lucky enough as a teenager to have my Dad purchase the occasional ticket to fashion week and kindly drive some girlfriends and I to Melbourne to attend a show. Dad would attend the show too, then we would discuss everything from the garments, styling and production on the long drive home.
