I decided that sequins are ok to wear during the day…I know…Big call…Huge…I felt like a little Mid week pick-me-up in the wardrobe department..and decided my inky navy blue sequin jacket was just the ticket. Its from Sportsgirl years ago and I paired it with my Zara Skinny Denims, White Calvin Klein Tee, Witchery gold and chain handbag and a cashmere scarf purchased on a recent trip to India.
The key to getting away with the traditional night time bling…is to dumb it down. Choose jeans and a t shirt…Keep it simple and then you’re less likely to look like: a) you are just heading home from a big night out..or: b) you are off to the pokies in the middle of a work week…neither of these scenarios are a girls best friend..trust me on this..
I hardly ever wear skirts..and I almost definitely never wear dresses…but this week I pulled out an old trusty black knit woollen dress with a huge oversized neckline…perfect for winter.. Its from Nicola Finetti and I added my faux fur vest to keep the look current. Knee high black suede boots from Michael Kors completed the ‘I hardly ever wear a dress look’… this ensemble won’t be making a repeat visit anytime soon…Let’s just say..I like to wear the pants.
Saturday was the day I was waiting for all week…My close girlfriend was celebrating her birthday and the girls only guests were booked to dine in style at ‘Davids’ in Prahran. An chic Asian Fusion yum cha that had us all begging for more of the clean, fresh delicacies… It was delightful..and so was the wine…the champs…and the Vodka shots.. A birthday celebration calls for a trip to the hairdresser for the blow wave…so the outfit to get primped and preened in should always a comfortable one. Bonds Grey track pants, White Zara tee, Sportsgirl Grey sweater, Gold Persol sunnies and black and gold Havianas. Hair coiffed, makeup on and then it was a quick change for lunch. Witchery Black Lacquered jeans, White Zara Linen Blazer, Thurley silk camisole, Kmart Black suede and Gold kicks..and then layer those accessories like a crazy women.
Chanel Camellia ivory and Gold cocktail ring… a recent purchase, Hermes Ivory and Rose Gold Click Bracelet, “the journey is the reward’ bracelet, Samantha Wills earrings, Michael Kors bone watch and Black Cat Eye Ray Bans…Witchery oversize handbag…and then we were off to enjoy the day…did somebody say prawn toast???…
