Chic with just enough lace

There was no denying yesterday that Kate Middleton got it right. The contemporary design by Sarah Burton for iconic Alexander McQueen was almost too fitting. McQueen dresses a real Queen - He would be so chuffed! 
But the dress itself: Sweetheart neckline, modest bust, perfect A line skirt, not a puff in sight and just enough lace. And did I mention the bustle! The skirt layers at the back showed the intricate craftsmanship that gave the impression the ample train was being held to the dress by a mere thread.
My favourite part of the dress was the divinely subtle lace appliqué along the base of the skirt. It caught the light so softly, without attracting the eye away from her long silhouette.
It is a timeless dress that flawlessly exemplifies a Middleton class girl's transformation into a Princess.
Her second dress, also by Sarah Burton for McQueen was just as classic with a little princess thrown in. Cashmere cardi over identical sweetheart bodice of the ceremonial dress. The jewel belt wasted no time placing her in April 2011.

Pippa wore Sarah Burton for McQueen that as not only timeless, but ageless. Conservative cap sleeve and cowl neckline perfectly portrayed a Princess's sister.

Her second dress was elegant and super sexy in Jade green

Vision board

A lovely friend shared Pinterest with me recently. I don't quite know how to navigate around it, or what its all about, but I do know that I now have the easiest way to catch images that inspire me everyday. I gather that its like instagram or twitter where you can share and re-pin posts - I just havent gotten that far yet. When you sign up you download a Pin It tab to your nav bar, so when I'm surfing my favourite blogs, I can capture the images that most inspire me to one page - something like this: You can follow my pin board , sign up and start your own. I have found it very useful, and hopefully soon I'll get the gist of how it actually works

Pyjama Partay

I woke up at a leisurely 5pm yesterday, right as my brother, sister and her partner piled into the house announcing a cinema jaunt in 15 minutes. I was glad to be pulled out of my coma, and even more glad that the Pyjama pant trend has officially hit [in europe anyway :s]. Wearing my bed clothes and a Zara knit, we grabbed a few shots before heading up to the cinema - only to find the film we were seeing was not actually playing! In my sleep state I also didnt notice a friend right behind me... discovered late last night when looking back through these pics! random Anyway, we changed cinemas and ended up seeing Young Adult - Great Film! Wearing Pants from Tempt / Zara Knit / Earrings from Nimbin [ thus the rainbow] / Whittner shoes / the bag [i love it!] is Saci's most recent vintage purchase  We are having another stall at the South Yarra Market this Saturday [4th] Its from 11am to late... but the market part wraps up around 3pm. We had a ball last time. Ther


My girls at Splendour in the Grass. The Mini Splendour area was crazy fun. GLOTATTS sponsored the event so that all the little celebrity kidless got their sparkle with tattoos and glitter. Overall what a perfect last day to a hugely successful festival!
