pretty dress

14 November 2010
Heading off to my 6 month old nephew's christening.  Love this dress- got it on a very good sale at 'A store' on Chapel St a couple of years ago and it's by Australian designer 'Bless'ed are the meek', the embroidery is silver silk. 

These shoes are Sachi and found them at a Myer sale for about $40!!!!! This colour seems to go with everything and I've been surprised how versatile they are.
Dress: Bless'ed are the meek, Shoes: Sachi, Watch: Swatch, Earrings: Swarovski

Party time

9 October 2010
My little sister Diana's 30th birthday party so time to glam it up.  Being in the backyard the boots were a more practical option than the heel.
Aren't my two sister gorgeous!

Canberra spring

8 October 2010
A lovely spring day in Canberra visiting family.  This jacket is one from Cue I got quite cheaply on sale and is good for work or play, the necklace which you've seen in previous posts was $4 at Diva.  The shirt was Zara I think in Amsterdam, purchased on my recent holiday.

Oh loooove aviators too- a wardrobe staple!

Boots

15 October 2010
Day out and about with my hubby- still cool so the boots are getting a bit more of a wear.  These ones were a bargain! They are 100% leather- leather upper, leather lining annnnndd leather sole- very comfortable- got them less than half price at Witchery about 4 years ago.  An investment piece don't you think ; )

Switzerland & snooooowwww

4 August 2010
The best day of all! Headed up Mt Titlis to play with snow- eeeeeeeeeee.  Time to bring out the winter gear, also bought some cute grey knitted gloves at the top which I'm holding in the pic below.  Had been starting to think I was lugging about my leather jacket for no reason- all good- it did get a bit of wear after all.

Vienna

31 July 2010
Into pretty Vienna, Austria- an immaculate city so clean and also a fair bit cooler... loved the Summer Palace- the gardens were amazzzzing. The jacket I'm wearing is a great one from Dotti- it lightweight and goes with everything. 

Also went to the Swarovski shop and had a ball playing with crystal. I don't think there was too many in our group that made it out without buying something.  Check out my piece of crystal below- love it!!!

Venice- eeeeee

29 July 2010
eeeeeeeeeeeeeee Venice- my favourite city of all.  Bucketed rain all day though which added to the adventure!! Hunter gumboots would have been the preferred shoe choice for today...

Loved the beautiful masks and the glass jewellery in Venice.

Pompeii

23 July 2010
Well this was the hottest day of all at 45 degrees Celsius and time for a fascinating tour of the city of Pompeii.  I picked up this little white top at Zara in Barcelona- just the thing and the audio-guide makes the perfect accessory ; )

The view behind me in the second picci is the Almalfi Coast- just a little glimpse.
 Shorts: Marcs, Top: Zara, Necklace: Diva

Vatican City

22 July 2010
Instructions for today were 'church dress', so knees and shoulders covered.  I wore a plain black 3/4 dress and had my scarf at the ready.  I picked up this gorgeous red umbrella outside the Colosseum for about 4 Euro and it sure came in handy.  This scarf is another one of my favourites- black, white and tan colours go with just about everything- its also a great length and shape= love it!
Dress: Sportsgirl, Shoes: Witchery, Scarf: Witchery, Umbrella: Random Italian man

Rome

22 July 2010
Rome! It got even hotter, so another day for the denim shorts- we madly rushed around Rome seeing as much as we could.  Here I am on the Spanish Steps and also looking extremely happy to see the Trevi Fountain.

Florence

20 July 2010
One of the best days of the trip in Florence, Italy.  Of course it was action packed and hot! Time to bring out the summer dress and trusty thongs...

Pisa

Time to bring out the stripes for the leaning tower of Pisa and the daggy photo of me holding it up ; )
This is such a handy little dress, comfy and a good one to wear with opaque stockings and ballet flats.

Monaco

19 July 2010
Loved Monaco- such an beautiful place.  Time to glam it up for dinner and Monte Carlo Casino.  Met the most stunning elderly American couple as we were headed in.  They told me it was their 43rd time! and she said, as she held my arm, "I still remember my first time though".  <sigh>
Dress: Sportsgirl (again!!), Shoes: Tony Bianco, Cuff: Diva, Coin Necklace: Sportsgirl

Nice, France

18 July 2010
A really great day! Hot of course so stuck to denim shorts and silk top for exploring the town, then hit the pebbley beach to work on my tan before a night out.  I love this Kookai maxi dress- it has a bit of grecian feel to it.

Barcelona

17 July 2010
An action packed, and HOT day in Barcelona, Spain.  At night the group headed for dinner and a flamenco dancing show.  In the Spanish theme of things I parted my hair in the centre and wore this bright purple dress and big hoop earrings.

Chateau de chamnard

17 July 2010
Off through the beautiful country side of France, with field upon field of bright yellow sunflowers, to the stunning Chateau de Chamnard.  A big travelling day so a comfy choice of jeans, singlet and a scarf.

Paris
