Friday Frivolities.

Everybody seems to be in a better mood on Fridays, possibly because of the impending weekend and a cause for celebration or relief. However, did you know that in several Middle Eastern countries such as Saudi Arabia and Iran, Friday is the last day of the weekend and Saturday is the first workday and that Iran has only one weekend day and we complain two days is not enough!

Anyway, one of my favourite labels, Gorman released a whimsical video for her Autumn/Winter collection. It’s very Gorman: girly, whimsical with a slight edge (the music and the darker features of the model). I might not like all the outfits, but I really like the concept. I have had my eye on the luscious scarf with the cute pom-pom on the end (check out the spotty bike, very similar to the one I blogged about here).

It will depend if I purchase anything here tomorrow:

Also on this weekend is the Melbourne’s Affordable Art Fair (19-22 May), and I was lucky enough to win tickets! YAY! I’ve heard so much from the previous years, but never was able to make it. So one day this weekend, that’s where I’ll be. Apparently, it offers something for every budget, with an extensive range of art available, from contemporary to traditional, emerging to investment. I don’t think I’ll be purchasing anything, but nevertheless I’m excited to see what’s out there and by the beauty of the Melbourne Royal Exhibition Building.

Finally, for the those that like to take Sunday walks, show your support for Indigenous health and wellbeing by taking part in The Long Walk. Michael Long rallies participants to walk from Fed Square through Birrarung Marr to the MCG.
