India Wedding


As we get ready to head off on our annual India holiday, I thought I would flashback to our Indian wedding ceremony in 2009.
We headed to India with 12 of our friends and family and travelled through India together, ending the holiday in Kovalam, Kerala where our wedding ceremony was held. The extreme highs (cruising around Allepey in a houseboat ) and extreme lows (the realisation that the return trip from Delhi to Agra by car took over 10 hours.. which we stupidly did on the same day) made this trip the most memorable yet!

What to Wear: Night out

 Girl’s night out? Need some outfit inspiration? Well, look no further.. I have come up with the ultimate outfit guide, just for you!
1. Hunt No More Sequin Top – What night out is complete without a bit of sparkle!! I love the colourful sequin detail on this top. Perfect for day or night or when afternoon drinks turns into a big night out!
2. ASOS Lampshade Skirt – Bright colours are what summer is all about.. add in a bit of tulle and you’ve got yourself a party skirt.
3. Novo Wedges – Wedges!! You never know where the night will take you.. if you do end up on a dance floor at 3am at least your feet will thank you for your wise choice of footwear. (You’re head may not be so forgiving!)
4. Brown Vintage Sling Bag – Just big enough for all your essentials + a handy sling strap = bag perfection.
5. Accessories – Take the party with you everywhere you go. An arm party! Layer up the arm candy.. the more the merrier! 
6. YSL Rouge Volupte Lipstick – My most favourite lipstick in my most favourite colour. Silky smooth, long lasting and a gorgeous coral colour.
There you have it! My guide to a great night out.. well at least my guide to looking great on a night out. 
Happy Friday everyone 🙂

Mellow Yellow

(Skirt – ASOS, Shirt – Zara, Shoes – Betts, Cuff – Diva, Necklace – Sportsgirl) 
Another lazy Sunday spent in the Swan Valley. I love that this amazing wine region is less than 10 minutes away from where I live. It sure makes for an enjoyable weekend activity. 
Driving through beautiful scenery and sampling delicious local food and wine.. The perfect Sunday!
What’s your ‘Perfect Sunday’??

What to Wear: Perth Cup

Day at the races

The biggest event of the Perth Racing Festival is coming up fast. For those of you stuck on what to wear to this year’s Perth Cup I have put together a what to wear guide.
You’re welcome!!
1. Bardot Peplum Dress – A simple dress that doesn’t show to much skin is a race day must.
2. Mimco Feather Veil – I am not a fan of the fascinator so when I saw Mimco’s feather veil it instantly captured my heart!  It is the perfect head piece for the anti-fascintator fashionista.
3. Turquoise Diva Necklace – A black and white dress calls for a colourful statement necklace. Bright Summer colours are a must and the bigger the better!
4. Kotur Pearce Clutch – A metallic hard case clutch with just enough room for the race day essentials. Lipstick, powder and a pencil (for filling in the betting cards!!)
5. Guiseppe Zanotti Wedges – A comfortable wedge shoe. No explanation necessary here but I will give a small hint: Grass everywhere.

Party Planning

(All images sourced from Pinterest)
I am currently planning my 30th birthday party and have come across some amazing inspiration while searching for ideas. I thought I would share some of my favourites. 
I have seen so many gorgeous table settings and decorations it’s been really hard trying to narrow it down. I am particularly loving the use of jam jars and old bottles, different takes on the trusty party streamer and of course the beautiful dessert buffets. My favourite kind of buffet!!
Be sure to check back next week for my post party post 🙂

Designer Capsule #2


Better late then never! 
Finally a recap of Perth Fashion Festivals Designer Capsule #2 show.
Steph Audino’s glamorous Spring Summer 12/13 collection was first down the runway. The dreamy, romantic collection was made up of beautiful, sheer, flowing fabrics, intricate beading and thigh high splits. I could just see myself swishing around in these amazing dresses.. now if only I had somewhere fancy to go!!
Next up we saw the fun Summer 12/13 collection from Kim Barton. Bright, bold colours and quirky patterns mixed in with crisp whites made this perfect for Summer. 
Last, (but certainly not least!!) was Garth Cook. We were treated to a glimpse of three collections including the never seen before Winter ’13 TRANSFORMER collection. Garth Cook’s signature style shone through with unique cuts and complex folding detail.
My favourite piece? The pastel origami bra top! LOVE!

I was lucky enough to attend Friday night’s WA designer collections runway show for the Perth Fashion Festival. It was such a great show and I was blown away by some of the amazing talent we have here in WA.

One of my favourites of the night was Anna Excell with perfectly tailored colour blocking in the best colour palette ever. Hot pink, pale pink, bright orange and maroon were all featured in this bright, Spring collection.

Another stand out for me was Little Gracie. Cutesy floral patterns, frilly detailing and pretty pastel colours all came together to create another beautiful collection from Little Gracie. I would be so happy to wear any of these girlie creations…

Oh and I can’t forget to mention the freakin’ awesome bridal gown that Peppermint Milk sent down the runway. I am sure there will be quite a few brides rocking a floral embroidered train on their wedding dress after seeing that!
