When the active wear and sneakers got put away, the flared pants came out to play.
I know, I’m one of ‘those girls’, right? The ones who puts too much thought and spend too much money on one outfit, for one day, that is more than likely going to be worn one time. I just can’t help myself! Especially when I came across the show-stopping, fiery red pants that stole my heart away. The minute I tried them on and did up the front zipper, I just knew they were made for me. Who cares if I only wear them once (my bank account, probably..)! But, when there’s one pair left in your size, it’s near impossible to resist…
I scored these insane pants at Willow & Wolf – the perfect pair of festival pants! I knew I would be attending Hot Dub Wine Machine in the next few weeks, which was the perfect excuse to snatch them up and love them forever. Wine Machine is an incredible one-day festival held at the Home Hill Winery in Huonville, TAS. We sang our hearts out in the mosh pit alongside Sneaky Sound System, and danced the night away with Hot Dub Time Machine as we counted down the best and most iconic music from the 1960’s to 2018. So, the festival was a great success for all fashionistas and red wine drinkers alike (especially me… you won’t find wine stains on these red bad boys!).
Finding the right black top to go with the main attraction of my outfit was harder than you would think. I searched everywhere for a black crop with spaghetti straps – basic but classy – and I found nothing. This t-shirt crop was a total bargain from Princess Polly Boutique, and I’m so glad I found it. It’s not too simple, with a cut-out across the neckline, leaving room for a bit of classy cleavage, and sitting just above the waist line, showing off some skin above the high-waisted pants.
I learned my lesson last year after not wearing a hat to a music festival, in 30 degree heat, with barely any shade. So, this year, my first point of call was a hat. I found this perfectly-fitted Adventurer Hat at Red Herring Surf in a HALF PRICE sale. Nothing I ever like is on sale! I snagged my $18 festival hat the day before the event, and it was the perfect finishing touch for my outfit.
I wish I could tell you that I paid $1,255 for this genuine Gucci handbag, but I’m a university student, not Jennifer Lawrence. Riley obviously has an impeccable taste in handbags, as he picked up this little baddie for me from the Melbourne markets. It matched the whole theme of my outfit perfectly – not to mention it’s a great size to take to an event like Wine Machine. It’s small enough to carry on your shoulder, but big enough to fit keys, makeup, sunglasses, my wallet and my phone (which is impressive because iPhones are insanely large).
So, that’s what I wore to Hot Dub Wine Machine.
