Monday Give-Away: Inspired by the Feminine Form

by cecylia on May 28, 2012

Where: The neighbourhood

Wear: Susan Rep dressvintage belt, earrings & clutch, Sonia Rykiel heels, YSL ring

Over the weekend, I braved the cold Melbourne weather to debut this slinky number to my neighbourhood, and now, the cyber-hood. Designed and made here in the heart of Melbourne by Susan Rep Loungewear, say hello to my new favourite LBD! I was immediately taken by the billowing sleeves with flirtatious slits and the central part. I know what you’re thinking, this is rather sassy for “loungewear” and you are quite right ninety-nine! That’s what I love about Susan Rep‘s pieces. Her dresses are not influenced by trends but are ‘inspired by the feminine form’. Can’t think of a more harmonious fusion of comfort and glamour!’

I have always wondered why bloggers (myself included) all host give-aways on Fridays. Friday is already the best day of the week, it is Monday who needs an indulgence. So has teamed up with the lovely Susan Rep to give you the chance to win this ravishing dress! All you need to do is:

1. Like the Susan Rep Facebook Page here,

2. and let me know which size you would like (S, M L) below in a comment.

Tres facile! :) You can follow me on Bloglovin’ or add me to your Google+ Circle for brownie points! The winner will be announced on Monday 10th June!

Happy Monday lovelies!

I am a huge fan of one of Australia’s most fabulous up & coming designers, Susan Rep. She truly designs for the feminine form & her fabrics have such magnificent movement, her colour combinations are divine & her designs are timeless, ageless & organic, they flow & move with such grace. She has international appeal with an Australian edge & always a touch of the dramatic. To wear a Susan Rep design is to know what beauty feels like…a woman!
This piece is fantastic & I am a small.

cecylia May 29, 2012 at 9:51 pm

wow your comment has blown me away! Thank you for sharing your admiration for Susan Rep. You’re spot on about her beautiful designs and aesthetics!

Cheers thank you darling!

You never fail to amaze me with your style! The belt and heels are perfect for that ensemble. I’ve grown up in Singapore, but spent an amazing year in Sydney. The time spent there not only opened my eyes to the wonders of this amazing continent, but also to the creativity of fashion designers there. Everyone has their distinctive style and all never fail to impress. This Susan Rep dress would be a perfect clinic opening present for me! I’d definitely wear it for our soft launch wine and cheese party.

Please send me that dress in a size S.

cecylia May 30, 2012 at 9:47 am

Awww I didn’t know that you lived in Sydney!! That’s so cool, how long were you there for?
Best wishes! xx

Josephine Davida May 29, 2012 at 11:35 pm

Hi Cecylia

This LBD is so elegantly timeless. Susan Rep’s dresses reminds me of Tom Ford, celebrating the female curviness. I would love to own one if you let me.
I hope size S should fit me.
Thank you so much for the opportunity.
Fashionably yours

cecylia May 30, 2012 at 9:47 am

Yes TOM Ford! You’re so right! xx

I’ve seen the dress before, but love the way you have styled it. That dress really could take you from lounging by the pool straight to happy hour at the cocktail bar. Love it.

Debbie June 4, 2012 at 3:57 am

I was drawn to this post not so much because of the giveaway, but more of how this dress looks utterly faultless on you! There is a air of insouciance about the way you carry yourself in the photos. Keep up the good work with your blog :)
Btw, I would LOVE to have this dress in a size S !!!

cecylia June 4, 2012 at 10:19 pm

Wow Debbie I had to look up what ‘insouciance’ meant! Thank you for teaching me a new word! French too!

Rusty Hoe June 4, 2012 at 1:05 pm

That is a really gorgeous dress and I love the belt you teamed with it. I think that”s what I like about your style, you make every piece your own, through unique accessories and innovative ways of wearing them.

I’m a size S
