Last night, Wellington Fashion Week kicked off with a roaring start, beginning with a WORLD fashion showcase, followed by the WFW opening night party.
Somewhat completely fulfilling a Wellington cliche, I found myself almost head to toe in black, stripes aside, having decidedly taken a more casual approach to the evening amid a crowd of some of Wellington’s most fashionably dressed. This morning, almost without realizing, I found myself grasping in the depths of my wardrobe for a pair of heels to see the day out, breaking the daily and regimented process of rotating through my flats. I suppose a bit of fashion-shock culture was bound to hit pre-MBFWA considering how comfortable I’d begun to get in my rather simplistic daily uniform.
I finally picked up these black booties over the long weekend, having gone through a string of confusing phone calls as to whether they were arriving or were they toffee colored or was the size just a glitch in the system. So far they’re proving a breeze to break in, essentially confirming in my mind that these were more necessary than not. Makes choosing shoes for Sydney just that little bit easier..
