It’s been a while since I’ve blogged regularly but I’ve come across quite a few kind business chic folk recently which means that the daily office style inspiration is BACK – and if this makes you happy, please express by liking this post on facey or use your email / Twitter/ Pinterest to share with your friends as I could do with some encouragement 🙂
Each day this week I’ll be posting my photos of the stylish professionals I photographed at an afterwork event, SmartBar at Melbourne Museum.
When was the last time that you went to a museum? For many of my friends and I, the answer was either “when I was at school” or “when I was overseas.” Are you the same?
Melbourne Museum has adopted a pretty clever idea (I think) to bring grown-ups like us back into the museum; open the museum after work + djs + licenced bar + quirky-fun-interesting talks and activities = SmartBar.
A fool-proof formula that makes for a great night – as I hope my photos will help capture over the coming week because I had SUCH a good time!
But I’m jumping ahead of myself! But I’m sure that you’ll now understand that I was pretty chuffed when the museum invited me along to cover the last SmartBar event that was themed around the Brain, Mind & Eyes.
On the program for the evening I attended were a series of talks (one on mitochondrial DNA which I loved if only because I was excited that I remembered what mitochondria are; I loved Biology at school!) and activities (lifedrawing!) but as I’d *ahem* never been to Melbourne Museum myself before, I ended up being completely absorbed in the exhibitions on display which you will get to see as backgrounds to the BusiChics I showcase each day this week!
So without further ado, here are my snaps of Erin and Jessica who kindly allowed me to photograph their serendipitously-matching work outfits!
What I love about Erin and Jessica’s outfits is how for me they are a great example of what those of us in Contemporary Business Wear environments can wear to the office then out to drinks. A mix of vintage and market finds that shows the wearer’s personality in a work-appropriate manner. Do you agree?
Erin, or "The Fuzz" was wearing the following: Shoes - Nine West Skirt - emerge, purchased through Ezibuy Blouse - Zara Clutch - Sussan Banksy necklace - gift (I believe from Camden Market, London) and Jessica was wearing: Dress - Vintage Cue (circa 80s) purchased from ebay
~ great colour but I’m particularly taken with the fabulous shape that Jessica pulls off so well! – Cheryl
Shoes - Wittner Clutch - Country Road
What do you think of Erin and Jessica’s style?
