Dressed for the occassion

Christmas is such a special time of the year. This year, my husband and I shared this occassion with our mothers, at a quaint restaurant, Verona at the Gateway on Monash. The food was divine, service was great and the company was, of course, wonderful. 

For all special occassions, one must wear suitable attire. I was lucky enough to receive the perfect garment for Christmas from my husband, very fitting for an occassion such as this.

Instead of a Little Black Dress (LBD), I chose to wear a Little Navy Dress (LND) and I do prefer the latter. Why? You ask, when the LBD rates so very highly on the top ten must-haves in a woman's closet?  Well it's simply because navy is a softer, more feminine choice of colour and oozes French chic. You must try it some day, if you haven't done so already, and you will be amazed at the result.














Made with the softest crepe fabric, this LND feels lovely on the skin. The drape of the dress itself flatters a woman's curves perfectly. I just love it and know that I will get alot of wear out of it for years to come. I chose to pair the dress with nude heels to elongate the legs.

The dress comes from the Sea Monsters collection by Karen Walker, a New Zealand designer. The collection boasts a lovely array of garments, from silk tops with little octopus prints to stunning brocaded skirts and dresses made from shantung silk. Karen Walker is stocked at Pearl Rock, Black Rock, Melbourne. 

We are planning a special New Year's Eve celebration at home this year. I am looking forward to seeing the New Year out in style and can't wait to show you what I'm going to be wearing!

I'd love to know how will you be celebrating the New Year and what you're planning to wear.

Yours in style,
