One thing I have had time to do, is snag some highly sought after tickets to the Starry Starry Nights Ball in November. The event sold out in 10 minutes, and I am excited to be a part of something so special and for such a wonderful cause.
Yes, Monbulk to Miu Miu indeed!
Now...for the serious stuff! Princess Mary will be leading the chic ladies. I need a gown!
I have come to the conclusion that I am an accessories girl and not a 'dress' girl. You have to be one or the other - a statement dress is exactly that...minimal to zero accessories required. I prefer my dress to be my canvas...something I can use to showcase my creativity via my accessories.
Black Tie is a serious opportunity to showcase your inner chic and be a glamazon.
Okay....so given I am an accessories girl, I have settled on a very stylish (yet understated sexy) asymmetrical black gown by designer Carven. With this decision behind me, I have 6 weeks to locate the perfect shoes (naturally, must be at least 15cm heels), clutch and jewels.
Hair-up appointment? Tick. Mani & Pedi appointment? Tick. Spray Tan appointment? Tick.
Can you tell I am excited?
Here are some of my favourite Black Tie finds, naturally, to make my readers excited for me and perhaps feel inspired to bring some chic glamour into lives...."just because it's fun to be chic!"
I will post as I create my outfit as well, of course, pictures and glamour stories from the night itself!
