Boutique’s 1st Birthday Bash – An Epic Thank You

by cecylia on April 28, 2011

It’s still difficult to believe that one solid year has flown by, our boutique is now 1 year old! 12 months ago, we got back from Paris Fashion Week, with big ambitions, plenty of passion and very little knowledge of anything. But through the support, love and prayers of countless people, we have arrived at this small milestone. Tonight we just wanted to thank everyone for their words of wisdom, look books,  generosity, time, blog posts, interviews, invitations, photos, following us on Facebook and kind thoughts. We heart you! And we would not be here without any of you.

Our boutique: 1113 High St Armadale Victoria 3143

Our labels: Alldressedup, Amy Kaehne, Ant Viconia Goy, Aris Geldis, Bento, Damselfly, Felder Felder, Gail Sorronda, Gasparre Cashmere, Mawi, RoksKarla Spetic, Repetto, Roksanda Ilincic and Spijkers en Spijkers.

Our Dress code: Classy with a Fancy hat

Our loved ones:

My beautiful business partner Linda in Sophia Kokosalaki and a fancy hat. She has put up with me the most through these 12 months, thank you so much for your love, understanding, tolerance and advice. Without you, this boutique would still be a thickment of my imagination and without you, our boutique would never have reached one year old.

My beloved mentor JC of Madam Virtue and good friend Lisa, who has an incredible blog called Stylus Muse. She is wearing a Roksanda Ilincic dress purchased from the boutique especially for our party! Her amazing vintage Chanel bag should look familiar to you, from Madam Virtue, featured in this post.

The beautiful Jess from What Would Karl Do, who used to work with us and is one of our VIP customers; the Ambassador of Glamour, Candice de Ville, who takes our motto ‘every day is worth dressing up for’ to another level; and my favourite vintage market lady, Rina, of Take 2 Market, I cannot wait to set up a stall at her market in June :) Thank you so much for the pink balloons!

My favourite boutique owners Dean and JC of Madam Virtue, with Monica of Style Platform who has featured us countless times on her blog, thank you so much my gorgeous girl. Love your Lanvin heels and your sister who made your hat is so talented! Thank you so much for your generous gifts!

Isn’t Sarah from Style Melbourne stunning? Adore her emerald vintage hat! Sarah has a crazy schedule and most nights she is triple booked for events, but she always makes time for ours, thank you Sarah!

Suzi and Eva Q, whom I have written a blog post about here.

Mr Kee (hubby), Stefanie (who I have styled here) and Kon, of IKON images, who shot this shoot with me. They are the sweetest people I have met. Stef is also a budding actress!

Our musician of the night, Gooey; the gorgeous Minki and the stylish Lockie, a few of my most treasured friends

Kon, Suzi, Lisa and I. We’re both in Roksanda Ilincic! :)

Mr Kee and I, and Theodore. I am so thankful for my husband for his love, friendship, patience and wisdom. He built my blog, our online store and encouraged me to switch from vet to fashion. Not every husband would encourage his wife to chase after her dream and support her ALL THE WAY.

Next up- Part 2 :)
