This week I had grand plans to put together my outfit for Aussie Curves – Job Interview early and get it all blogged and done before Friday.
But the best laid plans and all…
Sure, I had put it off for a couple of days because I hadn’t quite figured out the entire outfit, but I was getting there. Thursday was going to be the day.
Then in the early hours of Thursday morning I had a rather rude awakening in the form of my dinner deciding to come back up (gross). I won’t go into any other details, but two days off work and four days later after a diet of not very much, I’m still not feeling that great. But I am getting better.
Which is why, at the last hour, I have come to write my Job Interview post for Aussie Curves.
Last night I spent a few hours going through multitudes of photos sorting them into various folders to try and find a couple of photos of my outfits from when I was actually interviewing for jobs a few months ago. Lucky for you, I found them.
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.
I have never quite understood how the Melbourne Cup was called ‘the cup that stops a nation’, but now I do.
Having experienced my first one in an Australian workplace, I witnessed my colleagues all stop what they were doing for about half an hour and then all head back to work.
It was great.
My horse lost.
But the best part was the fashion! Many of my colleagues dressed up and wore something pretty in their hair.
Here is what I wore.
I actually don’t have that many ‘nice’ dresses. I’ve been looking for a some because I have a few events coming up this month which require cocktail attire. This one I have had for a little while and it was love at first sight.
It’s really comfortable as it is made of ponte fabric, but it can be a bit warm for a Sydney summer.
I love the see-through shoulders and the diamantes on it. Unfortunately these tend to come off in the wash and I have already lost a few. I should really know better by now to buy things with sparkles on.
I paired it with the tights because I was going to work and wanted to be comfortable, and today was unusually cold compared to what it has been lately in Sydney.
I have also realised there is nothing better than a red lip. I feel almost invincible when I put it on. This is my Revlon Ultimate Suede one again, which I have already professed my love for many times. (Side note: I am so much more comfortable with these images that I was with the Retro ones.)
My hair piece is just a headband with the feathers attached. It has kind of become my go-to piece when I need to wear a fascinator. I did my hair in a simple, messy side bun.
