Greetings from the Gold Coast!
As I haven’t really had much time this week, what with all the traveling, reading, swimming and eating I have been doing, I realised I hadn’t done my Aussie Curves post this week for Cocktail. But I have done it just in time!
Now cocktail is something that I can really do – I have so many pretty dresses, as Man Piece would say.
However, as I am without camera or really most of the things needed to create an awesome post, this one is mostly going to be a flash back to what I have worn this year.
This year seems to have been one filled with cocktail events for me, particularly for my job and mostly in the last quarter of the year.
I have been lucky enough to be invited to several architecture awards nights and a wedding or two. From this I seem to have accumulated a few really nice dresses.
For this week’s blog post, I am going to show you three of them, as well as the best cocktail venue I have ever been to.
Dress Number One
Back in November I traveled out to the Hunter Valley for my cousin’s wedding at Tulloch Winery.
I ended up wearing a dress which I hummed and ha-ed about for ages. I absolutely love the style, but Man Piece doesn’t like it. And with his discontent, it planted a seed of doubt in my mind.
Ultimately, I was so taken with the dress that I sucked it up and went a bought it. Man Piece be damned. I love it. I hope to wear it a bit more than for cocktail events, maybe casually to work with a pair of leggings or something.
I also added my teal coloured clutch with studs. I took it to an awards event a week before at the Ivy which was blue themed. Blue drinks, blue lighting, blue table decorations – my clutch fitted right in.
Dress: City Chic
Stockings: We Love Colors
Heels: Target (gifted)
Nails: OPI ‘My Chihuahua bites’
Dress Number Two
Also back in November I had the awards the magazine I work for organises. Once again cocktail. They were held at Doltone House in Pyrmont and I knew I would be wearing the Lolita dress from the Bellecurve range at Target. I was dying to wear it to something nice the first time out and this fit the bill.
Dress: Bellecurve from Target (gifted)
Dress Number Three
Lastly was the National Architecture Awards held at the Sydney Opera House. A perfect venue for the event and, really, a great venue for a cocktail party. I had an amazing time at this one, the Opera House is just spectacular.
I kept it simple as I had come straight from work, so I needed something that could go from day to night quite easily.
I chose my cross-hatch tunic from City Chic. During the day I wore it with a pair of leggings and flats transitioning to night with a pair of stockings and heels.
Here I am on the patio at the Opera House with my colleague Geraldine. Quite the view.
Dress: City Chic
I didn’t really plan on it, but it seems that I rely on my pantyhose from We Love Colors and my heels from Target quite a bit when dressing up. I guess they are simple and easy to match with any dress.
Well that’s it from me this week. Hope you are all enjoying your Christmas/New Year period. Make sure you check out the other lovely ladies below. I’m out, time for a swim.
