THE DRESSMAKER

You know those meant to be moments? The ones that just happen by pure luck.  When you’re not looking, but what you wanted is right in front of you without realising.

I had that moment not to long ago.  I was on a ‘planned’ shopping spree, getting ready for Summer otherwise I binge shop and buy unnecessary and never to be worn items in a frenzy. It was the end of the day and I had just about everything on my list, with one final stop at Bardot I went straight to the sale items and chucked in this dress that usually isn’t my taste into my bag just because it was on sale. We’ve all been there.

When I got home I tried it on, hoping it would fit.  It did and I fell in love.  I instantly started rattling off some of the occasions I could wear it, not wanting to waste it’s first outing.

The occasion came last Sunday when we went to visit The Dressmaker Exhibition at Ayers House.
The Exhibition itself was amazing, the attention to detail was everywhere and you were transported to a time and place where magic happened.

For those of you who have seen the movie or haven’t, I highly recommend checking it out, it’s displaying at Ayers House until December 10 2016.  Conveniently the movie is for sale there too so you can get your whole fix of Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth in fashions’ prime located in the outback of Australia.

I knew I would be instantly inspired when I saw the costumes so I made a conscious effort to dress for the occasion.  Thus the frst outing of the meant to be dress.  It was a beautiful crisp sunny day, so I teamed the floral layered dress that twirled with me with every turn I made, with one of my favourite accessories – my straw hat and finished it with some open boots.

Sometimes the Universe works in your favor and those last minute buys end up being your most treasured possessions.

Now to find the next occasion.

LIFOU

At our first stop, we disembarked into the tranquil and secluded Lifou.

We spent the day exploring the streets of the island, which were lined with palm and frangipani trees and kayaking to the more unexplored turfs by ocean.

We made our way around the island in our vehicle of choice the Kayak, and uncovered a secluded beach.

There’s no feeling quite like it than being on your own little beach and although you are only walking distance back to the hut where they hired out the Kayaks, you felt isolated and the serenity was captivating, it makes you really feel the island and get a taste of what it would be like to be completely dependent on the islands natural resources and detached from the wide web of the world.

But then how we would get all our fashion inspiration.

For a day packed of exploring I wanted to make sure I was practical and what better practicality is there than a cute red one piece (aside from when you need to go to the toilet and of course the tan lines) but all for the sake of fashion.  Teamed with every girl’s island staple – ripped jean shorts and I was set.

If you are still not convinced on cruises – think of the destinations you get to visit that may not be on your radar and maybe my next and final post will sway your judgement.

Until then, stay fashionable

2015 AFF – FINALE

Last night was the finale show for this year’s Adelaide Fashion Festival, closing with creative genius Paolo Sebastian and let’s just say he shut it down!

Since it was the last of Adelaide Fashion Festival, we wanted to dress the part.

Keeping it light and fresh and weather appropriate trying to capture that effortless chic cliché – well if you want to get technical it was pretty effortless as we were running around all day we didn’t have much time to pre-plan outfits.

With Georgia opting for a white suit that can basically be worn with anything and Alexis giving us major Blair Waldorf vibes in knitted skirt and chunky jewels.
