Okay, so I love living in Australia. We have some of the best beaches in the world. Where I am from, it's amazing for surfing, camping, fishing etc. However the fashion side of life runs a little bit dry. Sometimes I can't help but think, "what am I doing with my life?".

My life consists of working - racing home to capture sometimes really extravagant outfit posts and copping the strangest looks from my neighbours on a daily basis. I definitely feel as though it is time to broaden my horizons by being around inspiring people and amazing fashion! And let's be truthful, I see posts from the Lookbook community having fun at Fashion week & other events and sometimes us Australians can't help but feel a little bit left out.

A trip to New York to experience the whole culture of Fashion Week there would be mind blowing! I've never set foot in America nor have I been to a Fashion Week of any kind! To go and on top have this incredible accommodation to stay in would truly be a blessing. I am more than ready to head over (hence the sneaky inclusion of my passport ;). I know it seems kind of desperate to include it, but desperate times call for desperate measures. haha!

I am aware a plane ticket may be a bit more expensive for me however the opportunity to meet the team & experience Fashion week with you guys would be an absolute honour!

I really appreciate it & you!

Your looks are always so inspiring, I call it "Storybook Style". Out of the top lookbookers, you deserve to go. I like that you keep your style free-spirited and classic as opposed to "modern futuristic". Keep it classy ;] And sometimes the places that are the least fashion oriented are the most inspiring places for fashion. I love your nature wanderer style.

Aw, this is SO nice Emerald, thank you so much for this & the heart xo
