Vogue Fashion Night Out - Melbourne 2017 @ Saturday, October 28, 2017
Friday 1st September
It's another shopping festival! The biggest one of the
With the AMEX thing most places have a high charge for cards, and even more for that card. The accountant said no to getting a cc just for VIP status at multiple events.
Lunch time! From Sushi Monger, our go to for lunch when after Japanese. Though we've tried a bento, the sushi rolls, but this sashimi bowl is my favourite thing to order. You can't see it, but there's rice under all that.
TDE had a mini golf game to win a bag tag - but the lines were 1hr+ and if you lost part of your soul would evaporate and you'd die. Life is a series of lines, or maybe just these free events.
It started at 4.10 for a cake pop, it opened at 5pm, but by then the line was out the door - as usual. These days 30 mins early ain't enough. How crazy is that? Lines are normally standard an hour wait.
Donuts from Brook's Brothers, le beau loves their suits. Though I'm really not sure about blue on yellow... Would have been better on a white background. Our first encounter with a donut wall irl.
Thanks for the cotton candy MK!
Froyo from Frozen By A Thousand Blessings! $3 for the pink froyo with free toppings!
The theme of the event was millennial pink, which turns out isn't a certain shade?
Cheap candy buffet stuff mainly, I picked them all for the photo but in hindsight I'd only go with the persian fairy floss and strawberries only. The pomegranate froyo tastes likes the strawberry frozen one at the supermarket.
Bonds had a claw machine, the easier ball one. OMG I won!! On my second go, alas it was sz8 and I gave it away. I know my size, and I know there's no way I'm going to even attempt to wear that. Sometimes it's not about the prize, but the win itself.
Something else I noticed is that people (some, not all, but quite a lot) are sheep. They love to join lines when they don't know what it's for. I've been followed by large groups of girls on a few different occasions. Why are you following me? O.o
The SA was busy so said for me to help myself to some flowers (a gift with purchase) and soon a few girls grabbed some too. Only one got away, before another SA flew over and said they're a gift when you buy something.
Free chocolate samples! This was on main street, the main area for the party.
As usual Dyson was there to do your hair. I've never got it though, I prefer to get ready before the event and not during the event, where no one's going to see it and it won't last till tomorrow.
At Myer there was lots of offers, for pre-spring racing. Drinks, treats and calligraphy.
Perfume bottles are most fascinating, they come in every size and shape!
I do miss the classic round-ish shapes with those ball pumps though.
We spent a fair while chasing the scavenger hunt, so close but far to the last prize, tickets to the runway. We were close by, but like a few levels up instead of in the main area. Damn. But we did win a lipstick in red orange.
Look at those posing skills! She's doing that seductive look, biting her finger and doing that hair thing that I'm sure they only do in bedroom shots XD
*picture of me*
Vogue didn't share all the pics from the event, I guess they skipped me cause I'm not hot enough? I worn something pretty awesome, a Rodeo Show dress but styled in my own fashion, schoolgirl style XD Plenty of compliments we counted around 10. Something I noticed was that almost all of the compliment givers were female and mothers or working at a shop I went to. There were two guys, a fellow non-conformist and the banker.
What I also noticed was quite a few dirty looks from girls my age - who I have nothing in common with :P
The spot to take photos.
It's always a bit of a marathon these events.
My best purchase was some gloves, 'Little Miss Gloves' from Review. Butter-soft leather gloves, scalloped cuff and petite bow detail. One of the bows is falling off, not so great... unlike the price! $70 down to $40, with the 30% off it's like $30, then with my $15 voucher it was $15! Also came with a cupcake, flowers and free monogram!
Melbourne Central offered free monogram on anything you bought tonight, anything. From bags to shoes, and mainly that, also bag tags and the likes, to diaries. I'd love to get my diary done, but didn't have it with me.
We didn't end up going to fashion week, though these are some of the more interesting looks. First up we have the fly screen net headpiece, it's a veil XD
This skirt, those colours are very trendy with accessories at the moment. The unicorn trend.
The bottom part looks like Mimco, while the top says 'don't you dare pat me on the head'. XD
How can she see? Why does she need a visor? The outfit was a bit lame.
I do like the fabric but the style, nope.
Inspired the harvest?
