ornamental flowers

My grandmother had the most marvellous collection of costume jewellery. Her most amazing pieces were actually real - precious rubies and sapphires set in over sized coral pieces to form out-there cocktail rings and broaches. When she passed, she left some of these precious ornamental pieces to my twin sister & I. For the most they sat in the bottom of boxes, not seeing the light of day, until 2012 rolled around, bringing with it the "statement necklace" trend.  Costume jewellery at its finest, these champagne coloured glass gems, set in 6 petal flowers on large chain, is an eye catcher. Not one from my grandmother's collection, but reminding me of the very similar necklace I left back in Australia, wearing it makes me want to throw on a brightly patterned kaftan and sit by the pool with friends (as I imagined she would be doing if she were still here)

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!


The 18th annual Splendour in the Grass Music and Arts Festival kicked off during the coldest week of winter. But that didn't stop the fever of fun and fashion expression for festival revellers. This year was the first year we were not officially working on site for GLOTATTS (we worked tirelessly leading up at pre festival parties and events) We continued sponsorship with little glitter & tattoo stations set up throughout - most notably at Little Splendour - a festival within the festival specifically for our young ones - which my girls enjoyed tremendously! DAY I looks were provided by the wonderful HER PONY THE LABEL team. Day II outfits were from the new Spell & the Gypsy Collective range. By Day III we were footloose and fancy free, opting to highlight our GLOTATTS sparkles with threads of our own choosing. I wore a gorgeous burnt ochre linen dress by Brazilian Flirting
