After the Big Is Beautiful Runway Show a few of the attendees headed to “The Hub” to hang out and claim our goodie bags. There were also come cool stands like this one from HP, it was a creative mecca.
Caitlin from Closet Confessions was there and she was creating her very own masterpiece.
I was feeling a bit spent after the show so I took the easy way out and tagged the wall with my awesome header logo… you know, the toddler-drawn version. I was pretty chuffed that they even had my signature shade of blue!
The HP stand was so fun and interactive, it was also a great place to mingle and meet new people.
After we were done cutting, drawing and pinning we headed to the VIP lounge, grabbed our goodie bags and sipped our cocktails on the coolest metallic silver couch and talked blogs. Say “Hi” to Natalie from XL as Life and Corrine from Frock & Roll.
Caitlin is like a little kitten. She’s cute, she bounces when she’s excited, she’s smart and playful.
Natalie only moved to Sydney recently and it was the first time we’d met. Turns out her new home is only 20 minutes from mine so I’m sure we’ll be hanging out more in the future. She’s as nice as she is colourful.
I really like Redken products, I’ve used many different brands in the past but was introduced to them about 6 years ago, some of their styling products, especially for curls are amazing. Redken gave us all a really generous sample pack full of things to treat our tresses.
Then we headed over to the Photo Studio stand to have our portrait taken. I’m now keenly aware of much I need headshots taken by someone else for my blog. Caitlin and Natalie had their picture taken took and they look awesome. You can head over and vote for our pictures (I’m #35) and one of us could win the prize.
After we’d all had enough of The Hub we headed outside for some mandatory outfit photos. That’s the thing about fashion bloggers, none of us want to head home without a full body shot to post on our sites.
Of course I needed some photos too!

I’m loving Natalie’s bold neon accessories against the black and white dress.
Corrine shared on her blog that her dress was a total absolute steal from Target and her blazer is Armani, a 2nd hand find no less and to keep the look hardcore she rocked a chunky skull handbag… love it!
I’m still kicking myself we didn’t set up the self timer and take a group photo but that’s the sting of hindsight. The photo I do want to finish on is this one of the lovely Natalie, she’s had some major changes happen in her life lately and I just adore this photo of her laughing in the sunshine, all dressed up and doing what she loves… more highlights of the Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival to follow!
