What I wore: LMFF 2013

In my last post , I detailed my experience of my very fi r st L'Oreal Paris Runway event as part of this year's LMFF . It was such an incredible time for me, I 'm already hanging out for the next one! I was hoping that the weather was going to be hot because I was intending to wear my sheer silk blouse by Jolet and my favourite Yeojin Bae silk skirt. However, Melbourne had a bit of a cold spell last week and I had to change my original plans. I decided to wear a short sleeved cashmere sweater to take the chill off the a ir and a skirt made from a heavier fabric. This turned out to be the perfect choice for the night. It meant I was comfortable and could enjoy the fabulous evening of fashion .   I'm not usually one for hair accessories, but I simply couldn' t resist this divine handcrafted Cathleen Jia piece. I love how it ties up in a bow at the back. It's an incredibly versatile accessory to own as I've even wor

LMFF Paris Runway 7

T hey say there's a first time for everything and last night saw me experiencing another first ; m y first ever L'Oreal Paris Runway event! I was filled with so much excitement, as I made my way into Central Pier, Docklands, care of my chauffeur , aka husband .  Cuddling up to the cutest Dulux dog I have eve r met, was such a sweet way of starting off a night which was going to be filled with many magical moments. I had the pleasure of attending the L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival , Paris Runway 7, presented by Frankie Magazine .    On the runway, the following Australian and New Zealand designers showcased their new Autumn/Winter collections for 2013: Gorman , Kuwaii , Leonard St , Limedrop , Secret South , and my two absolute favourites, Karen Walker and Jolet .  Much to my sheer delight, Karen Walker started off the show. I've always been a huge fan of hers, much more so recently . My favourite looks from the Fantast

Learning to Accessorise

I'm the first to admit it, I'm not b i g on accessories. I don't usually like to overdo my look and prefer to keep it simple. So can a minimalist wear them? I think so. As long as they aren't so, well, chunky? Not for now anyway. I need to start off small. Simple styles, like this handcrafted and beaded headband by Cathleen Jia , which I've chosen to wear today as a belt, are ideal.  Are you big on accessories? What are your favourites? Today was a lovely day spent out with my family. What I wore was just perfect for an afternoon relaxing over lunch and drinks at a pub. Tomorrow evening I'll be attending the LMFF Paris Runway 7, presented by Frankie Magazine, and I'm so excited! Can't wait to tell you all about it. Oh, yeah ! I almost forgot, I had my hair cut a bit shorter this morning during my visit to Rokk Ebony . What do you think about my new do? Yours in style, Suzi x T-shirt: Philip p a .K Jeans: Ar


Masquerade: a mask of mystery. Partly hiding away from the world, showing just enough. The eyes are seen, for they are the windows to the soul. Can you see me ? Hiding away, until I feel safe enough to reveal my true persona. Safe enough to reveal the me I want you to see, as I remove my mask so you see the whole of me, in entirety . Masquerade: a mask of mystery... I wore this outfit to a themed Masquerade launch for Cathleen Jia 's new bridal collection, Toujours. To see photographs and details of the launch, click here . Today I visited one of m y favourite boutiques, Pearl Rock , located in the gorgeous sea-side suburb of Black Rock, to wish them a very happy 3rd birthday! Pearl Rock have received lots of new Autumn stock, from fabulous designer labels, including Megan Park, Manning Cartell, Sabatini and Karen Walker. Head on down for some champagne and nibbles and while you're there, pick up something fabulous!

Toujours by Cathleen Jia

Last night, I had the pleasure of attending the relaunch of Cathleen Jia , including a special preview of her new bridal collection, Toujours. It was held at Angelique , situated right in the heart of Armadale's bridal precinct.   This wasn't just any runway event though. The theme was Masquerade . Models, adorned with masquerade masks ,  wore Ready-to-Wear Cathleen Jia cocktail dresses, offered scrumptious taste experience of canapes, champagne and refreshing sparkling water, served in quaint crystal glasses, adorned with sweet black satin bows. In the lead-up to showcasing the collection, guests were treated with a preview of a debut fashion film, which encapsulated the very essence of the Toujours collection; a romantic diffusion of vintage and contemporary styling.  Congratulations Cathleen!
