That was way too long and way too strange a title. What I meant to say was… I now have a twitter!

Follow me!

News flash! It’s just been confirmed that I will be covering most of Melbourne fashion week on assignment for a few Japanese magazines and papers. But you know me, in my spare hours I shall bring you the street fashion aspects too! The attendees of the shows, the front row, I’ll be dashing around, breaking my ankles, hurrah! I might show you what’s on the runway as well, but the biggie in Australia is the Sydney fashion week, which is an industry only event, whereas anyone can buy tickets to the shows at Melbourne fashion week. Nonetheless, I will have my fashion week cherry popped, so I hope it will be a gentle and exciting experience… :p

Just letting you all know, that’s all. Oh and the mania starts on Sunday, flight is booked, accommodation is sorted, Melbourne here I come! If all goes well, there might just be a little not-so-live blogging while I’m there.

Until then, I’m off to stress and panic about what to wear and what to pack, gahhhh!!!

City news

Ain’t nothing like a little self promotion :) City news is a local newspaper for the Sydney city central area and recently I was featured in an article about local bloggers, you can even see a little mugshot of me. City news doesn’t have a huge amount of circulation, but still, it’s nice to see my name printed on paper, knowing someone might read the article and check out this blog.

If you are interested, here’s a transcribe of the section about me:

Local goes global via a blogger near you



Woolloomooloo photographer and web designer Xiaohan Shen shoots street fashion – just people she sees on the street with something to their outfit, from quirky to trendy to casual to the “fashion-forward”.

The blog is based on successful overseas street fashion blogs like The Sartorialist and Facehunter.

“Xssat is not about high fashion, it’s not about designer brands, it’s about taking inspiration from the street and translating the looks with what’s already in your own wardrobe,” said Xiaohan.

Recent posts picture Sydney’s bowtie trend and its ongoing love of wearing black.

I’m quite proud of the blurb Michael quoted me on :p

If you are interested you can download the whole issue and read the entire article here.

I got an email a few days ago from Alive Sydney asking whether they have permission to link to my blog, of course I said yes, any publicity is good publicity! But I didn’t know it was going to be a cool little write up, I’m pretty stoked, this is the first press coverage xssat has received.

End of self promotion… for now.
