As you read this I am flying high in the sky somewhere between Perth and Singapore, hopefully with a peacefully sleeping toddler and a comfortable reclined seat. (One can dream!)
 
As mentioned previously, I am heading to India for our (now) annual visit. We will be stopping over in Singapore for a night on the way there and coming back through Kuala Lumpur for a few nights on the way home. Needless to say I am pretty darn excited!!

I will be updating the blog as much as I can while I’m away, but to follow along with all my travels and daily updates, be sure to follow Vintage Chic on Instagram: @vintagechiclady (#vintagechicinindia)

So long Perth, see you in a few weeks…

Karrinyup Shopping Centre Spring/Summer ’14

 Karrinyup Shopping Centre pulled out all the stops to officially launch into the Spring Summer ’14 season. The VIP event was held at the centre earlier this week. Guests were treated to live illustration, a catwalk preview and a style session with Elle Ferguson and Tash Sefton, the stylish duo behind the blog, They All Hate Us

I have been big fans of these two for a while and after meeting them can safely say my style crush has now developed into an all round girl crush!!
The ladies were just so darn likeable, funny and down to earth, it is easy to see why they are excelling at what they do. 
They are also big advocates for pairing designer pieces with more affordable high-street items. Elle admitted to wearing a $40 H&M outfit to fashion week previously, shocking her fellow fashionistas! We also learnt that Elle can not live without her denim shorts (or her curling wand!) and Tash has to have a weekly blowdry to keep her looking and feeling good, because let’s face it the hair is just as important as the outfit right?!

The lovely Mekel Illustration showcased her amazing talent with a live illustration of the girls as they chatted onstage.

Liebster Award

leibster11crop11

I have been nominated for a Liebster Award by the lovely Hay Emmy

What the hell is a Leibster Award?? Well, I asked exactly the same question! The Liebster award is an award in the blogging community, given to bloggers by other bloggers. (Nice, huh?) When nominated you must answer 11 questions provided by the nominator and in turn nominate 11 bloggers to answer 11 questions of your choice! 
So, here goes..

What are three products you absolutely need in your makeup routine? Concealer (my current favourite is Stila Perfecting Concealer), mascara and brow powder.
What could you eat everyday and never get bored of? Embarrassingly I actually do eat the same thing everyday. I am a bit of a fussy eater and like to eat as healthy as possible, so most meals consist of a different variation of chicken and salad!!
What is your favorite Youtube channel? Oh God, this is even more embarrasing! Fitness Blender. They have the best at-home workouts and so many different types to choose from.
What is your favorite genre of music? Beyoncé is a genre right?!
What is your favorite TV show? At the moment I am thoroughly addicted to the latest season of True Blood.
What was the last movie you watched? It has been so long I honestly can’t remember. I don’t watch movies very often!
What have you always wanted to do but haven’t got around to doing? Travel to New York. One day I will get there!
Name three countries you would like to visit in the future. France, The United States and Greece
What do you like doing in your free time? Apart from blogging! I love to shop, read, wine and dine, watch trashy reality TV, exercise and of course play with my gorgeous daughter!
What color dominates your wardrobe? At the moment there is a lot of white. I can’t seem to get enough. Preparing for the warmer months, clearly!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Doing what I love!! 
So there you have it! In turn I nominate the following lovely ladies:

Lei Lady Lei
Modern Girls In Vintage Pearls
Where The Styled Things Are
Nezuki
Little Miss Mon Bon
At Least
A Broke Girls Blog
Jeans and Roses
Illias Fashion
Love Rush
Frilly Skirts

To answer these questions: 
1. What is your favourite blog?
2. Why did you start blogging?
3. What is your dream job?
4. Describe your style in three words.
5. What is your favourite online store?
6. What was the last fashion item you bought?
7. What is your must have beauty item?
8. Who is your style icon?
9. What is your favourite food?
10. Describe your ideal Sunday.
11. What is your most treasured item in your wardrobe? 

PS. I realise the picture above doesn’t really have anything to do with the questions but while we are getting personal, I thought it would be fun to look back and some of my outfits from past blog posts!!

Studio Mekel Opening

IMG_68001
IMG_68561

The lovely (and oh so talented) Mekel Illustration opened a brand new studio at the Bayview Centre in Claremont last week and I was there to help celebrate!
 
The amount of support for Kelly was extremely evident on the night, with over 180 people coming down to witness the beginning of this new era. 
Guests sipped on delicious cocktails by Cocktail Gastronomy and snacked on tasty treats (the chocolate brownies…OMG!) courtesy of Cookie Dough Biscuits while browsing (and purchasing!) Kelly’s latest art works. 

I have been a fan of Kelly’s work for a while now, (I even did a little interview with her following the opening of her last exhibition wanderlust – check it out here if you missed it) her unique style of illustration with stunning pops of watercolour really appeals to me.. and well, who doesn’t love pretty pictures of fashionable girls!
