AHH, MONET!

On Sunday 20 April, I was fortunate enough to visit the latest exhibition at the South Australian Art Gallery - Colours of Impressionism - Masterpieces from the Musée D'Orsay. Unfortunately, I never quite made it to Giverny to see Monet's Garden, it had always been a dream of mine to see his famous Water Lily creation. The exhibition consisted of artists such as Monet, Renoir, Manet, Morisot, Pissarro and Cézanne as well as many, many more. It was a rainy Sunday and I was quickly taken back to the streets of Paris, where artists breathe creativity like air.  For this occasion I decided to dress the part.  I recently purchased this shirt/jumper from Forever New which doubles in practicality and wearability – transitioning from work to casual to dressy effortlessly.  I donned this with a black winters’ cap, black boots, my burgundy backpack (again for practicality), completed with my winter staple – my black cape. I felt...

VERSAILLES

There's no comparing the streets of Paris that have been touched by rain.  It is as if they were made for it. Versailles is like unlike any castle you could ever dream of.  The historic fairy-tales that fill the castle are comparable to its' beauty. Every inch of every room is magnificently crafted, fit for a King, or in histories case many Kings. As I wandered the immaturely manicured gardens of Versailles in a white lace dress, part of me got lost. Suddenly, my cares of the Paris rain disappeared and time stood at a standstill in front of rows of mini hedges that oozed the essence of Alice in Wonderland. That is who I become for the afternoon, little lost in history Alice in a Wonderland (albeit packed with tourists). As we listened to the tour guide through our newly purchased headset, crammed like sardines, moving from room to room in one motion,...

PAOLO SEBASTIAN – 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY

To celebrate Fateful Fashion's 5th Anniversary, I wanted to collaborate with other Adelaide creatives in Fashion, to reflect back on their own journeys and setting future predictions/intentions for the next 5 years. I have been fortunate enough to interview Paul Vasileff of Paolo Sebastian, who has always been an inspiration to myself and is a true depiction of hard work recognized and rewarded, and through it all, Paul has always been so humble and gracious. Fateful Fashion interviewed Paul a few years ago, when we were both in our earlier stages of our fashion journey, and it has been so amazing to have the opportunity to interview Paul again, I am truly grateful for Pauls' commitment to Paolo Sebastian and his support of others in the fashion industry. Looking back what has been the most outstanding favourite moment for Paolo Sebastian? One of the most outstanding moments for Paolo Sebastian has to be collaborating...

DEAR LILAH

  My weekend consisted of Peter Rabbit, baking, girly chats and photoshoots! My little cousin Lilah has featured on Fateful Fashion a few times, however this time I wanted to do something special with her.  We decided to head up to the Country, dress up, dance in the rain and capture these special moments. This post is dedicated to her. Dear Lilah, For a little girl so small in stature you are so big in life. You radiate sunshine to everyone you meet, and make their life better off just by knowing you. Your intelligence is surprising and your wisdom is beyond your years. From the moment you were born, I knew I would have a friend for life. I have watched you grow and as the years go by, our bond and friendship is strengthened.  That I am thankful for. Your generosity is admirable and your care for others is something everyone should aim to achieve. You have not only become my...

REJUVENATION

Last weekend, a couple of girlfriends and myself indulged ourselves in a complete girls day & night. Starting with massages and facials at Cocoon, followed by lunch at Fine & Fettle then a stay at the Playford and beyond delicious dinner at La Rambla, it was just what we all needed! As this occasion was coming up I was contemplating what 'look' to go for, as I have recently changed my hair, I wanted something a bit different and that would compliment my hair of course! Of course everything is last minute, and I didn't decide on what I was going to wear until the night of, with two recently purchased options! The outfit I went for was bought from Love Affair and was a TWIIN gingham inspired jumpsuit that was SOO comfortable.  I'm always a big black & white fan but this was something I wouldn't normally choose, given the leg length and strapless isn't always...

90th ACADEMY AWARDS

On the 5th March 2018, the Academy Awards turned 90.  An historic event in time, with a focus on the past and the accomplishments we as a society have achieved, and the future - highlighting the important discussion of 'Times Up', gender equality, equality for all and the acceptance of imperfections and individuality. What radiated a sense of community and love, the Academy's hosted by Jimmy Kimmel was a timeless affair, with timeless fashion. It's my favourite time of the year for fashion, it gives the actors and actresses a chance to show off their personality with flare and pure glamour. There were many desirable looks to choose from, however I have captured a few of my personal favourites. Margot Robbie Being a fellow Aussie girl, I am always looking to see her next 'look', always looking effortlessly chic topped with a glow, Margot exuded class in this Chanel number. Emma Stone I am a massive Emma...
