Vintage cream pleated maxi, Vintage gold belt, YSL ring

Just a few photos from the other night when Chloe and i had the pleasure of attending the FBI end of year fashion parade at The Ivy. I hadn’t been able to attend the past two years as a student because i could never get the time off work, so it was surreal to be invited as Gary Pepper Vintage this year and to be able to finally support fellow students of FBI. The venue was absolutely beautiful with white curtain walls lined with hundreds of candles, gorgeous chandeliers hanging from the ceiling and black and white zebra rugs covering every inch of the floor. I was so happy i could bring Chloe along with me and after what seemed to be an endless supply of bubbly that was flowing around the room we were giggling all the way home and downloading Christmas carols for our friend Katie in the car.

The highlight of the night was being able to meet the talented Sarah Jane and Heidi of Sass & Bide, who are unbelievably sweet and friendly in real life and just as inspiring as the clothes they make. Sarah Jane even commented on the vintage dress i was wearing so before i knew it we were taking about Gary Pepper and my store. It was the icing on what was honestly a wonderful night. Thank you FBI, until next year…

Well i’m off to Melbourne tomorrow for short three day stay. On Friday Adrian from I Do Believe I Came With A Hat, Lorraine from Not Quite Nigella and myself will be down at Federation Square in Melbourne’s CBD from 3pm – 7pm hosting a wonderful Cornetto event and giving away free ice creams whilst the boys from Johnny Rock and the Limits DJ. If you’re around be sure to come down – it would be lovely to meet you
