Melbourne Cup Day 2015








  
Lately, work has been taking up a lot of my spare time. It is the busiest time for teachers with end of year testing and report writing. Now that I have almost finished my reports,I will have more time to dedicate to my blog.

This year, Melbourne Cup was spent at home, with my husband and mum. As the occasion was fairly low key, I opted for my M Missoni dress. This dress has been a fabulous investment and has already paid for itself as far as cost per wear goes. These Bally patent pumps are my most comfortable heels, perfect for a relaxing afternoon.

After the race, we retreated to our tropical garden and enjoyed a scrumptious afternoon tea with macaroons which I purchased from La Belle Miete, Chadstone.   

Unfortunately, we didn't back the winning horse, but we had a lot of fun watching the race!

What have you worn to the races? I'd love to see your outfit details, so please leave your link below.

Yours in style,

The Perfect LBD





One weekend, I went looking around the international designer section of Myer, when, all of a sudden, something made me stop dead in my tracks.

There hanging on a black, velvet, gold hanger was the most perfect LBD. The dress in question was designed by Giambattista Valli, Paris. It was made from the most luxurious silk and lined in floaty silk organza. There was a bow detailing the neckline and waist. Accents I adore.

I held my breath in anticipation. Would it fit? Being a petite size, it is incredibly difficult to find clothing with the right proportion, style and fit.

When I tried the dress on, I let out a sigh of relief. It fitted me perfectly, so much so that I wondered whether it had been made just for me. 

So I guess my quest of finding the perfect LBD is now over....well, for now anyway, that is until the next Giambattista Valli dress!  Just kidding!

Wishing you a beautiful week!

Yours in style
