Went to a friend’s birthday drinks last weekend at 99 Problems, wore some pink tassel earrings I made (for a photoshoot which I’m dying to show you the photos, soon!) with a vintage Mam’Zelle dress (French label) that’s been waiting in my closet for the past decade. When I studied and worked full-time as a vet, I hardly had the chance to dress-up (except for the occasional wedding or birthday) so I’m so thankful that I can adopt my style philosophy of ‘every day is worth dressing up for’ nowadays (except when I’m working at the vets because you’ll be sure to be covered in pet hair, pee, poo and other gross things). So there, that’s the very unglamorous side of Cecylia. After I left 99 Problems, this gorgeous chinchilla flirted with me, majorly. Here’s another amusing tale for you, whenever someone’s not having the best day at work at the vets, I sing them this song I learnt at high School: ‘Basil the Cat, furry and fat. Basil is my big fat cat, he’s the coolest cat you’ll see. Struts around like he’s the king, thinks that he’s the master of me. Basil the Cat…’ And that usually brings a smile on their face :) So let me know if you’re ever not feeling the best and I’ll sing it for you.
So, on a serious note, here are some amazing fashion events you and I should not miss out on in the next few weeks:
1. Madam Virtue’s Sale at 5 Crossley St Melbourne (just off the Parliament end of Bourke St) – this is the vintage designer heaven in Melbourne, owned by my fashion mentors, where I bought my first (vintage) Chanel bag.
2. Habbot Studios Pop-Up Shop on level one of GPO– my favourite Melbourne shoe label by Annie Abbot. The ex-buyer of Net-a-Porter makes her divine shoes in Italy and she will be open for 6 weeks to sell her previous and new collections. I love her shoes so much that I will actually be helping out at her Pop up boutique next Thursday 1 September (10-3), so come and join me for some shoe shenanigans!
3. Stonnington Spring Fashion Forum and Parade next Wednesday (31 Aug) morning and Thursday (1 Sept) night respectively. 2 events I am not going to miss, looking forward to learn the ins and outs of running a fashion business by a panel of 4 including designer Arthur Galan and social media expert Kristen Boschma at Functions on Chapel at Prahran Town Hall 255A Chapel St, Prahran. I am also counting down the days until the fabulous runway party at Malven Town Hall on Thursday night. I have been offered a double pass to give away to my wonderful readers. All you need to do is to leave a comment saying that you could like to come and Like me on Facebook and be my Google Friend :) Hope you can come and join us for an amazing night!
I hope to see you there darlings, have a gorgeous week!
