Every year when my blog turns one year older, I hold a Bloggerversary Party. You can see the frivolity of last year’s shindig here. In the past year I’ve met so many more bloggers, so it was an awesome excuse to have everyone over at the boutique for some girly fun! And the theme of this year’s party was ‘Anna Dello Russo-esque’.
Sarah of Style Melbourne, Bianca of her gorgeous Parisian style blog, her title (il etait une fois ‘once upon a time’) sounds absolutely divine; and pretty-as-a-button Jasmine, our Friend in Fashion. 3 super chicks!
You should remember Leeyong from this post, she has previously worked for Vogue Japan, designed her own label, is Eurasian (so gorgeous!) and still makes her own clothes and accessories! Can you believe that she made her fuchsia dress!
The lovely ladies at Adorn came to give us makeup demonstrations. I am makeup-illiterate so it was great to learn the tricks of the trade. Mineral makeup is better for our skin and Adorn mineral cosmetics are 100% natural, and are an Australian product. I’m a follower now!
Guests are treated to the best: Cupcakes from none other than the delicious Cupcake Central, and macaroons from Parisian bakery La Tropezienne. I ate one from every flavour because I have missed these treats so much!
My dear dear friend Jess, of What Would Karl Do, who is going to the yummiest mummy ever! Congratulations once again Jess! I love Jess’ style, always on trend but always with an element of surprise.
Recently I met Aimmey, a freelance make-up artist. Check out her gorgeous gallery here. Aimmey’s passion for make up could rival my passion for fashion. So we hit it off right away and cannot wait for future collaborations! Theodore felt right at home next to her faux-fur vest.
My dearest photographer friend, Karen, one half of Finessence Photography, is also expecting soon! Congratulations to you too! Finessence just launched their studio on 122 Mailing Rd Canterbury, their studio is definitely worth checking out. Karen bought the Mawi long chain necklace for Christmas. Her Repetto heels are souvenirs from Paris. You can purchase them (in red orange) from our boutique!
I have to tell you a little about my red pants, I’m sure you’re wondering where they are from. They are actually souvenirs from ZARA Sydney. I have mentioned in a previous post that I don’t go shopping anymore. But when I do, it’s either to support talented designers or for ‘research’. I have a love/hate relationship with Zara. I love their business strategies but I dislike the fact they copy designers. However since I am a supporter at heart, I brought these red leather skinnies back to Melbourne. I wore them for the first time at this blog party, bent down to pick up a cupcake wrapper, and my left knee ripped 2 stitches. Yeb, on my first wear. And I paid over $300 for them. Oh well, that’s ZARA!
A feast for our eyes- thank you Leeyong and Lisa (Stylus Muse Blog) for brightening our day!
After the Adorn work shop, we gathered together to clear our lungs for some Sing Star fun!
Thank you my dear reader for supporting my blog, for reading it, commenting on it and following it. When you do any of those last 2, it’s better than chocolate for me. So *hint hint*
Someone I ought to thank (but could never thank enough for) is my dear husband. He is my best friend, my mentor, my blog creator, my photographer (he has taken nearly all the photos for my blog, except this photo) and my constant pillar of support. Without Chian, I would be blog-less, boutique-less and bag-less :) Thank you so much hunny bunny!
Oh, and what do you think of these defined eyebrows? Thank you Adorn! Hehehehe Hope you’re having a fabulous weekend!
What I wore: Vintage shirt, jacket, belt, Zara pants, Marc Jacobs heels
