Because Fabulous Femme is photography driven, our inspiration comes from getting out and about. We love discovering new corners of Melbourne where we can create our gorgeous images. The location featured here is one of our new finds which put our creative juices into an excitable state.
The bluestone walls and textured doors of this place created a rustic photographic backdrop which we can see ourselves returning to for future projects. To top is off, the reddened autumn leaves perfectly complimented the colour scheme.
Transeasonal Style in Melbourne
Style is always super important for each photo shoot. Even though we’re in the middle of autumn, I’m not yet ready to don the long coats and boots. It’s a balmy 18 degree day so I’ve chosen a silver lightweight, pleated, asymmetrical hem skirt from Zara and teamed it with a little Sportsgirl jacket and a plain black tank top.
The reasonable height, white, pointy, patent leather heels are from Ninewest. My shoe wardrobe requires more of this height of a heel as it’s much easier to get around in than my normal stilettos! The hem of this skirt looks amazing when the wind picks it up! Floaty skirts are a weakness of mine. They’re flirty and swish when you walk, plus they look fabulous in photos!
My favourite shots are always where there is some movement happening, whether it’s me in action or my clothes in action. This just adds a bit more interest to a picture.
Blogging on the Go – You need a stylish handbag!
Every blogger on the go needs this stylish quilted bag from Hedgren. This bag is designed to protect your valuables, as well as looking great while you’re out and about around Melbourne. There’s a padded compartment in the middle which has been especially designed for a laptop.
My 15 inch Apple Macbook fits in there nicely along with the charger, my iPad and my phone! The leather handles of the bag feel secure and sturdy to handle the load – not that I recommend carrying loads such as this all the time!
This bag goes with anything and it’s going everywhere where I require my blogging gear. Our featured bag is the Black Diamond Touch Adela Tote from Hedgren (available this season).
