Shadow Play

by cecylia on October 31, 2012

After the uber colourful do demonstrated in my previous post, I’m back to neutral territory. Of course, with a twist. A Preen Leather Twist. As you scroll down, you’ll see I couldn’t resist a little posing in front of a Roy Lichtenstein-esque wall. This is the last post for October, a great month for me. A little return to normality was warmly welcomed. 2 weddings, a few Races and collaborations, and no funeral (although I dressed like I was attending one here). Thank you October for an adventure-filled yet rest-aplenty month! You were amazing.

 So to start November with a little excitement, I’m stoked to announce that I am one of 6 bloggers chosen to create the Be. Launch Party campaign. Be.Wine is a new wine brand from Treasury Wine Estates. Guess what? I have been assigned Be.Breezy, a delicious Rosé. Its theme colour is pink. Sweet! Basically I need to design (on Pinterest) the ultimate party to launch the new wines so I can invite you all to come!!! It would be an awesome way for me to show gratitude for your support for my blog. Please come and like my Pinterest boards on Music, Food and Décor. I will be updating you with my “Pinning progress” i the coming weeks. Please wish me luck!

And finally, a cute little fashion and makeup-tutorial video to give you a glimpse of what’s to come with my Be.Breezy party planning! Happy Hump Day!


明天是十一月的开始,我有很兴奋的消息和你分享!澳洲有一个新品牌酒,Be酒。有创意的Be酒邀请了六位博客小姐来设计她们的‘梦想晚会’,我就是其中一位。最后其中一位赢者能请朋友们来参加这个晚会!如果你想参加,请到这里‘喜欢’我的Pinterest 板来支持我。谢谢!

Love that dress on you! It’s so nice with the trench coat :) Absolutely love the dark grainy photos of it too – works so well with the outfit :)

Congrats on the Be. party campaign! :)

thanks Mica. I was so surprised that the grainy shots turned out so moody and perfect for the setting and outfit too :) Thank you for your encouraging words I’m stoked too

What a fantastic dress!

Cheers Michelle! Miss you lovely lady! xx

I love that you do edgy just as well as beautifully feminine! That dress is bangin’, I would very much like some Preen in my life…great trench too, I’ve had a few vintage ones in the archetypal shape but it just doesn’t suit me so I always let them go. Yours looks more fitted but still classic, I might have to keep an eye out for a similar style!

cecylia November 2, 2012 at 8:56 am

I ADORE reading your comments Claire. They make my day! Thank you for your lovely words. I’m still learning about edgy styles :D The trench was such a lucky find- it’s the perfect fabric, weight and tailoring. Check out the mens section at vintage shops- you never know what you may find :)
