Happy Monday beautiful! I hope you’ve had a wonderful weekend! I am about to share with you a truly special event I attended on Saturday. Enjoy! :)
Last weekend I had the greatest pleasure of attending a most glamorous High Tea event at the Langham, was founded and produced by Sha Anderson Le Style, and assisted by public relations Kyra Pybus (Pybus PR). This event was the embodiment of French chic, from the macarons, petite fours conceptualised by French patisserie chef Perrick Boyer, of Le Petite Gateau fame; to a stand by Peony Melbourne Haute Parfumerie who imports the best perfume from around the world, including Rancé, Napoleon‘s fragrance house which created perfumes for his mistress Josephine; to pretty girls dressed up in French maids costumes, a chocolate Eiffel tower and French parasols, all under the one roof, all to raise funds for Breast Cancer Foundation. Sha’s beautiful Lanvin dress was curtesy of Madam Virtue, a key sponsor of the event.
Domain Flowers, who I used to frequent when I was in high school, kindly donated stunning table flower arrangements in giant wine flutes. Visit the most respected and established florist in South Yarra next time you would like to give a thoughtful floral gift.
I am seated next to Nish, Kyra and Yahav. Kyra’s Luca Luca dress is from Yahav’s high end vintage salon, Paris 99, and her Chanel jewellery is from Parisian Street Society. Yahav’s amazing leather ‘watch’ is by Natalia Brilli, the most amazing French leather-ware designer.
Leeyong’s floral dress is so demure, the Style Wilderness blogger’s Chanel perfume brooch is from Japan! Susie’s red beret is trés chic! Ooh la la!
Here I am with Uncle Karl, I mean JC, sporting an enviable array of vintage Chanel accessories. Dean (love his velvet bow tie) and JC own the most incredible boutique in Melbourne, Madam Virtue on 5 Crossley St Melbourne. They are a rare breed of couturiers with current season high end European designers (LANVIN!) and also have the most divine collection of vintage Chanel, Hermes, YSL and many more. Dean and JC travel around the world to bring the best styles to our Melbournian turfs. Jane Hayes (Jane Hayes Consulting) is radiant in her emerald Marc Jacobs silk dress.
This finely curated display of couture dresses comes from Madam Virtue of course. Even Anna Wintour loved this red dress when JC recently showed it to her at New York Fashion Week.
Doesn’t Lisa look ravishin in her Livia Arena dress? The Stylus Muse is one chic lady! The generous Madam Virtue boys have donated these adorable suede Prada wrist cuffs for a lucky winner from the day. They remind me of Wonder Woman!
Here is the beautiful Sarah (Style Melbourne) in her incredible Gorman ‘Backgammon skirt’. Love those colour combinations, it’s like mini-colour-blocking!
Perrick Boyer, the sweets chef responsible for all the delicious goodness we were treated to.
How classy does Sarah (Sarah Style Emporium) in Vivienne Lorikeet, Lady Melbourne, in Chanel accessories curtesy of Parisian Street Society, and Thom (Everyone’s Celebrity), in Ralph Lauren look! It was an absolute charm to catch up with fellow fashion bloggers post MSFW :)
Thank you so much to Sha, Kyra and the Langham for having me at this chic and worthwhile event. Please like Le Style’s Facebook page to be kept up to date for these future glamorous events!
