A review of Fashion Friday in 2016
I forgot to close out the year of Fashion Friday posts so I thought I’d do a quick one here, since the last post was really the last outfit of the year.
I did 21 outfits this year, and one Q&A post.
There were many shoots outside of Sydney, including a Melbourne one at the beginning of the year with The Rainbow Connection (named by my friend Tara), and three shot by Nick on our Europe trip: Parisienne Walkways (also named by Tara) in Paris; Presso il lago in Lake Como, where Nick proposed to me; and Botanical in Singapore.
Away from the usual location in Sydney, we explored around the hospital area just a couple of weeks ago in Reverie, a new building further into the city with Silence is Golden, and an interesting walkway called The Goods Line in Aquamarine.
In October I welcomed Pat to the line of photographers in his debut shoot Seeing Squares, and it’ll be fun continuing to have his moody, deep style play a part in this series.
My favourite outfit
My favourite outfit was probably Winterlong, a beautiful winter outfit with bright blue jeans and a blue scarf, with tan shoes and a beanie to match. I wore a black coat, which I offset with a grey long-sleeved top. My hair was in waves. In hindsight, that’s a heck of a lot of colours, but I pulled it off really well. Sadly, the lovely shoes in this outfit got waterlogged and I ended up returning them, but not before I bought an amazing pair of brogues that made their way into Hibernal later on.
Do I still have all these clothes?
Last year, by the end of the year, it turns out I had gotten rid of a lot of the clothes I featured in my outfits because they became ill-fitting or I just got over them. That was a sure sign I was including them in Fashion Friday shoots just for the sake of doing so. Now, my blue Topshop jeans are a repeat offender, as I love them so much – and that’s a good thing! But I can safely say that only a few items in outfits this year have made it to the “shit list”:
- The black tiered skirt in A Whale of a Time. It was very casual and didn’t quite go very well with other clothes I had. It’s now left my wardrobe.
- The purple dress in Purple Block. I love it, but it doesn’t fit me well anymore as it’s too big. I am thinking of selling it.
- The grey skirt in Slate. It’s lovely, but it’s also too big for me now. I’m thinking of getting something similar to replace it, as I love the pockets.
- The blue jeans in Blue jean baby. I still find them hard to move in as the fabric doesn’t stretch much. I also don’t enjoy cuffing the hem. My blue Topshop jeans have definitely taken their place.
And that’s it! Everything else I own and love.
Fashion Friday in 2017?
Apart from the usual outfits, I don’t really have anything new planned. ☺️ I would love to explore new locations, but still working on my wardrobe and making every piece as versatile as possible. At some point I want to make it a little less about the outfit and perhaps more about expression and the way photographs are taken. I would love to encourage more discussion around fashion, though, for sure.
If anyone has any ideas or feedback, I would absolutely love to hear it. 💖
your favorite outfit in winter is also my favorite georgie ootd ;)
i’ve always loved all the autumn/winter fashion, all the coats and scarves and boots… and yours is just so pwetty! gotta love the splash of blue there :D
my second favorite would be the one photographed by Pat. i think i’ve mentioned it before on the post itself but gotta say it again, love that OOTD! very chic and sophisticated looking *thumbs up*
The rainbow connection OOTD is so comfy and fresh and has that sweet summer, beach-like tune to it. I also love the setting! :D
I love how you kept the FF series going on throughout the year! Without even reading the description, I knew the Lake Como picture was that proposal setting picture XD. You look super cozy in your favorite outfit!
I’m looking forward to the FF’s in 2017! I really like how you incorporated some unique architecture in your FF’s lately. Hope to see more of that next year :D. (also anything else that pretty much defines what Sydney is all about.)
Haha I love how that location is instantly recognisable. 😎 (One of the guys from Hey Geronimo even asked if that was where Oceans Twelve was filmed… yup!)
I’ve been a big fan of this series throughout the year! My favourite outfit has to be the one when you’re in Paris. It’s so sleek and classy! <3 I hope to see FF continue next year and having more of a focus on expression would be a really cool thing to explore :D I look forward to it!
