As our friends in the Northern Hemisphere celebrate the start of spring the rest of us in the Southern Hemisphere, including Australians, are starting to get a hint of Autumn weather. The days are getting darker early, we are no … Continue reading →

The joys of motherhood. First you get the excitement of finding out you are pregnant, then some of us become slightly uncomfortable as we grow into a “balloon” and after 9 months, lo and behold, you have the most precious gift, … Continue reading →
Happy Chinese New Year! Wishing you a happy, healthy & prosperous year of the goat, we look forward to the coming 2015 year and the exciting opportunities it has to offer. The year of the horse was a great year … Continue reading →
2014 has been an incredible year. I was born on the year of the horse, and I believe 2014 being the year of the horse has been a year of “good fortune”. Flying to my birth country of Brazil to enjoy the … Continue reading →
“All that glitters is not gold.” a famous verse by William Shakespeare (the Merchant of Venice) which may sometimes be true, but alas, we still love shiny glittery things.. Shiny cars, shiny jewellery and shiny clothes & shoes. 😉 Which is why … Continue reading →

I posted a little while back about the nominees for the British Fashion icon for the British Fashion Awards, not realising that I would be able to attend the award in person!!!
Yes, tonight at the grandiose Savoy Hotel in London, along with all the beautiful models, fashion designers and fashionistas will be me and with my fashion lover friends A and L (a blogger herself).
I got to attend these awards two years ago and queued behind non other than the dashing Christopher Bailey and Daisy Lowe, who luckily stole the attention of the waiting photographers.
So what to wear to such an occasion? This of course has to be an outfit that allows for some mad dashing from work (in west weeeeest London… near Heathrow) to Savoy Hotel in the über glamorous tube. (Funnily the invite actually says “your driver should take you to The Savoy Hotel… one day perhaps).
So this is what I have rolled up in my little bag:
Burberry patent shoes; and
Burberry quilted bag.
Dress in above style, but in the fabric of the skirt below.
Boots in the style of below but black shiny patent leather (so nicer):
The bag is similar to the one below, but instead of the two straps it has one thick long strap.
So fingers crossed there will be no problems with the tube tonight, and I’ll be able to be sipping champagne with the best of London fashion!
It’s amazing the happy feeling you get from a good shopping spree.. 🙂 It’s been quite a contrast for me going from working at Burberry and having regular ‘shopping sprees’ (with all the temptation of the Burberry discounts and sample … Continue reading →
