Fateful Fashion are proud to announce their partnership with Australian Fashion Labels & Type 1 Voice for the Fundraiser event held at Deviation Road Winery
The event which will be hosted by Media Presenter Nerida Foord and will benefit Type 1
Voice, a not-for-profit charity that helps raise awareness for those living with type 1 diabetes. The
organisation hopes to help eliminate social stigmas surrounding the condition and help boost the emotional
and physical confidence of those requiring insulin therapy.
“The decision to host a fashion show stems from our strong focus on helping grow self-esteem and
confidence in people living with diabetes,” says Lorraine Pitman, Type 1 Voice founder and chair. “Fashion
is a global statement of how people feel, and people with diabetes need to self-manage publicly every
Besides having Deviation Road Winery in Longwood in the Adelaide Hills as the backdrop for ‘Fashion &
Fizz’, with guests enjoying their premium wines, the winery’s owner and winemaker, Kate Laurie, is personally connected to the cause. Kate was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes herself in 2009 and is a member of Type 1 Voice. It was while dining with friends Melanie and Dean Flintoft, directors of Australian
Fashion Labels, that the opportunities for a fundraiser took form.
“It was at a dinner party with Melanie and Dean [Flintoft] that we really started talking about the restrictions the insulin pump put on people in their fashion choices,” explains Kate.
Kate is also currently in discussions for further collaborations between Australian Fashion Labels and the diabetes community, with the first exciting concept to the launched on the night.
Australian Fashion Labels will present the February ranges from their brands, Cameo, Finders Keepers, Keepsake and The Fifth on the runway for the first time. Local accessories designer Miss Margie will also showcase her newest range of accessories.
‘Fashion & Fizz’ tickets include drinks, nibbles, runway show and silent auction.

Last Saturday I was able to join my fiancé to his company’s annual holiday party hosted at Pardini’s Cafe. Which I was super excited for because Costco (the company he works for) is one of the best companies to work for and throws amazing holiday parties. So, I had been looking forward to it all week!
As for my outfit I knew I wanted to wear something different rather than the typical “holiday dress look”. My obsession with high-waisted flares had only expanded even more and I loved Kim Kardashian’s high-waisted pant look to her Fleur Fatale fragrance launch and my ideas just slurred from there!
That whole week prior to the event I was on the hunt for the perfect pair of black high-waisted pants. I found them at a boutique store called ANGL. Thank goodness I did. I had been to every store at our mall and went to this one last minute as the stores were closing and poof there they were! I did need to get them a bit tailored but that was no biggie! Remember I am only 5’1” so, alterations are my best friends. When it came to the top I knew I wanted to bring back the tube top and show that it can be worn in a classic way rather than your typical 100 degree summer use only top. It was a bit of a challenge finding one since it is almost winter and tube tops aren’t big sellers right now. So, again began the hunt to find that also! Indeed there was one store (brand new at our mall) named Joppa that carried them in every color—but black! So, I was glad the all-black outfit in mind was out of the question.
All in all the holiday party met my expectations and I cannot wait to attend next year’s! (Their raffle prizes are amazing!). I’m talking about big screen tv’s, bluray players etc. We, of course didn’t win any of that but, we did win some nice glass reindeer statues! You can never have too many Christmas decorations so, we were happy! That weekend officially kicked off the holidays now it’s time to pick out next weekend’s holiday outfit. The fashion adventures continue!

Yesterday I spent the afternoon by the sandy shores of Glenelg, Adelaide. It was a little chilly and windy to go swimming but it was perfect weather to admire the beautiful yachts perched in the Marina, expect I had to keep catching my hat from flying away and sailing away forever.
We had lunch down at The Moseley, which is the perfect spot to enjoy a lazy Saturday or Sunday drink.
I thought I had said goodbye to jeans and long sleeves, but with the sun stuck behind the clouds I got to pull out one of my favorite pair of jeans that I got in Melbourne from Top Shop.
I teamed them with my go-to Steve Madden chunk heels, Mink Pink Hat, Bardot shirt (that goes with everything) and my new favorite Mimco bag.
As I already had a bit going on in my outfit, I decided to keep my accessories to the basics, including my Michael Kors watch that I use as a feature for most of my outfits.
This was a super easy look to make dressy, adding a pair of heels and a red lip always helps class up jeans.
Hope you enjoyed your weekend and if you get a chance next weekend go check out the Moseley off Jetty Road!
