Earlier in the year I was fortunate to be invited to the Pretty Girl Fashion Press Day for Rockmans Fashion.
It was my first Press Day and I was not sure what to expect.
In turned out to be a really fun day. I met some fabulous people, met in person some of my favourite Instagram bloggers, got to see, and try on, some amazing Autumn/Winter Fashion and was thoroughly spoilt with champagne and canapes.
I then finished it off with lunch at Darling Harbour, with a couple of gorgeous Brissie bloggers.
Sounds pretty glamorous? It was! Though, just to give ourselves a reality check, we did have to run through the rain in heels, while trying to stop getting too wet and turning up looking like drowned rats, there was also quite a bit of walking the street trying to find a taxi to get to Darling Harbour for lunch (and don’t get me started on the hunt for band-aids to cure a couple of blisters from those high heels).
Now back to the important stuff – fashion!
Most of you would have heard of Table Eight. An iconic Australian brand that has been around for 35 years.
For me, the memories were of formal wear, suited for a day at the races or a wedding.
Well, it has been been given a total revamp and, wow, it is everything I love – flowing prints, stripes, fringing and long lines.
The new collection was released on Monday and there are so many pieces to fall in love with.
The focus is now on-trend, premium fashion that reflects the modern woman.
Don’t worry, the quality hasn’t changed it is still the same as it always has been – well made clothes from quality fabrics.
I know that there will be a few pieces that will end up in my wardrobe this A/W season.
Constance A-Line Dress $99.99 – is the perfect dress for a multitude of occasions. This can be worn with a pair of killer heels and it is perfect for just about any formal event with its floating sleeves and bold print.
But it can easily be belted and worn over jeans or a pair of tights or leggings for a more casual look and if you love layers add the Sienna Faux Fur Gilet $99.99 for more interest.
This would have to be one of my favourite looks. I have become quite obsessed with the off the shoulder trend this summer, and it looks like it will continue in to the A/W with the Maisie Print Maxi Dress $129.99. Loving the monochrome paisley print.
The other thing that I love about the cooler weather is the ability to layer clothes and one of my favourite layers is the faux fur vest. The Sienna Faux Fur Gilet $99.99 is perfect to add a little bit of boho vibe to your look.
Now, I think you can never have too many striped dresses – they never date and can be adapted for varied occasions. The Heidi Knit Midi Dress $119.99 is a tube dress that is the perfect base for vests, jackets and coats.
Above, the Roxy Longline Zip Trim Vest $129.99 has been added and really creates an flattering, elongated look. Denim is a perfect foil to stripes so add a denim jacket and a contrast scarf a completely different look.
The new season Table Eight can be found at over a 120 selected Rockmans store Australia wide or online at tableeight.com.au
Are you loving the new direction of Table Eight as much as I do?
