Like my manicure? I got it done at French Pink (best nail salon in Melbourne, hands down) & the polish is Stephanie by Christina Fitzgerald.

It’s cold out there today! Sheesh!

As you can probably see from these pictures, the dress I’m wearing is super-elegant & definitely designed for evening. The fabric is silk georgette & very slinky. The thing is, if you put a bit of thought into it, you can easily dress this kind of thing down for different occasions. To wear at night I would probably accessorise it with high heels & a simple necklace, but with a splash of colour underneath, a scarf & some fun matching accessories, an evening dress can easily transition to corporate or even supermarket wear!

P.S. I took all these photos with an audience of construction workers & one lunch-eating corporate dude. I think they enjoyed the show!
