Stylediaries :: How to dress like a Parisian




During a stroll at a lunchtime break, the shop window of Rodeo Show caught my eye. At first I wasn’t shopping for anything in particular. I walked into their tiny store on Pitt Street in Sydney CBD just under Myer and despite its size there was an excellent range in their current collections that I knew I would be shopping for more than one occasion. On the one hand they have their Resort Refresh 17 style which is classy but not too over the top for day wear. Vacation glamour are the right words to describe it, turning up the femme factor with romantic silhouettes and flirty details in dainty prints, lace and flattering drapes.

Starting off with a blank canvas: Blanca Bar and Dining in Bondi


"I go to Barcelona at least once a year", Tomi Bjorck, much celebrated Finnish chef and restauranteur told me at the opening night launch of Blanca Bar and Dining and when he tells me that, having just been to Barcelona, I knew Blanca Bar and Dining that has just opened in Bondi was something special.

Sydney Event :: One Fine Day Wedding Fair 2017 :: A peek at the Bridal Runways


I first was introduced to One Fine Day, a wedding fair 2 years ago when my wedding dress designer at the time suggested I check out this wedding fair which is a more refreshingly curated and creative event than the large traditional bridal expos, with a handpicked collection of sought after vendors in the wedding field. Not only is One Fine Day the perfect outlet for creative couples to gain inspiration from unique vendors in the planning of their big day, but a fun way to spend a Saturday or Sunday with your friends/family/bridal party. She was right. On a smaller scale, one of the most interesting aspects of this event are the bridal couture runways which showcases bridal designers’ latest ideas on bridal fashion. Unveiled in a romantic, nature like setting at The Cutaway in Barangaroo, all designs were eye catching with looks that yes, bowed to tradition but adding a touch of sultriness, flamboyant ruffles, intricate floral details, slender arm-sheathing sleeves, some with chaste necklines, some more provocative.
