Rewind to NYE 2014

















For the past couple of years, my husband and I have enjoyed spending New Year's Eve with family and friends, but this year, we decided to celebrate with "just the two of us". We went to a beautiful restaurant called Clover Cottage which is located in Berwick. The ambiance, service and food was impeccable. I would highly recommend this restaurant to you and we will definitely be returning there ourselves, sometime in the future.

Between the scrumptious appetizer, exquisite entree, scrumptious soup, delicious carvery and mouth-watering desserts, top-shelf G.H MUMM french champagne and a Fluffy Duck cocktail, this by far was one of the more memorable New Year's Eve I have ever had. 

I wore a dress by Australian designer, Ellery, winner of the 2014 Elle Style Awards Designer of the Year Award.  The fabrics used in the dress is a blend of silk/satin and feels absolutely divine. I love the silhouette and drape and the fact there are also pockets. So chic!

This dress was a Christmas gift from my husband and was purchased at one of my favourite boutiques, Paloma Bleu. Paloma Bleu stock a wide variety of Australian and New Zealand designers, such as cashmere label, Banjo & Matilda, Bec & Bridge, Camilla and Marc and Karen Walker along with a few other international labels, such as Parisian label, Majestic and New York label, Equipment. 

How did you ring in the New Year and, most importantly, what did you wear?

Yours in style,

Christmas Day 2014






I can't believe Christmas has come and gone already. I always love this special time of the year. It's so wonderful to catch up with family and friends over beautiful cuisine and refreshments. I also love giving gifts, especially wrapping them with coordinating papers, ribbons and gift cards. 

On Christmas Day, I wore my new Burberry London silk bow blouse, which was a Christmas gift I purchased for myself from Chadstone, the Fashion Capital. I paired this blouse with my navy Burberry London A-line skirt and nude heels by Paris label, Repetto. 

My husband and I enjoyed spending time with our mothers on Christmas Day and enjoyed a beautiful selection of traditional Christmas fare, which had been prepared by my mother-in-law. I even managed to fit in some delicious gluten-free pudding, brandy sauce, custard and ice-cream too! It's something I look forward to every Christmas.

What did you do for Christmas, and more importantly, what did you wear?

Yours in style,
