Gold Brocade

Late last year, I saw this beautiful cream and gold brocade skirt in one of my favourite boutiques in Port Melbourne, Diva Scandinavia. I was hoping to find something to wear for Christmas, but nothing caught my eye. Just when I was about to give up, my husband drew my attention to their sales rack. There it was, the skirt of my dreams, and it was half price! How could I resist? An added bonus was the fact this it was a limited edition piece. SOLD!

The funny thing about this skirt was that prior to purchasing it, I had a picture in my mind of the exact same type of brocade skirt, but thought I'd have to get it made because I had seen nothing like it in any of the shops I frequent. Little did I know that I would find it hanging on a rack, ready made, and in my size too. Life's funny like that sometimes. Some things are just meant to be.












I had another very full-on week of work and the Summer holidays I had not that long ago now feel like a distant memory. I've certainly been faced with some challenges at work of late, but have risen above them a stronger person, with a vision for a promising year. I think it's really important that no matter how hard things may get, one must never, ever give up.

I'm also very happy to say I managed to find time in between all of my work commitments to apply for media accreditation for the LMFF in March. Cross your fingers that it is approved. One can only live in hope. Plus, if you don't try, you won't succeed. 

Wishing you the perfect kind of weekend!

Yours in style,
