Total Dior Look

I’m not really sure it is but I’ve never been one to shy away from a bold colour. Instead of mixing it with layers of more colour like I would have naturally done a few years ago I kept it clean with a pair of (my dream) high waisted tailored pants by Dior. I feel my style has become more refined as I’ve slowly moved away from my loud and preppy vintage phase from when I first started this site years ago, and outfits like this have me feeling more like an empowered woman than ever.

With how busy life has been and continues to be I forget sometimes that I have a wedding to plan. From my close circle of friends, half are already married (with many also engaged), so I’ve been able to pick up some tips on what to do and been lucky enough to experience their beautiful weddings first hand. My little sister is even getting married in September so it will be a great preview of how my family will react. Still, I catch myself thinking about where on earth do we start and how on earth will I be able to find the time to organise the biggest event of my life. Trust me, when I have more details you will all find out. I’m excited to start thinking about all of these details nonetheless.

For now, it makes the idea of who will I wear on the big day a little bit harder when I am accustomed to having such beautiful pieces like this in my wardrobe. Paris always brings out the Maticevski in me…

Postcard from Paris http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/07/postcard-from-paris http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/07/postcard-from-paris#comments Tue, 28 Jul 2015 21:30:55 +0000 http://garypeppergirl.com/?p=26132 It never gets old.]]>

It never gets old.

Just a quick update from New York. I’ve been missing for the past few days from social media as I was hit with food poisoning during a time that I can’t really afford to be sick. It’s a little ironic it was from a green juice of all things! But everything happens for a reason and it’s given me the chance to sort through my Paris posts from Haute Couture Week as I lay horizontal trying to edit photos.

So my cure for feeling sick? Paris. It always brings joy to anyone’s face, myself included.

Crystallized http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/07/crystallized-with-christopher-esber http://garypeppergirl.com/2015/07/crystallized-with-christopher-esber#comments Tue, 28 Jul 2015 02:42:25 +0000 http://garypeppergirl.com/?p=26114 This has to be my favourite dress I've worn in quite some time.]]>

Christopher Esber Crystal Halter Neck Dress / CH by Carolina Herrera Heels (similar here)

This has to be my favourite dress I’ve worn in quite some time; the plunging neckline, the low back, the thigh high split, the slinky and sultry fabric not to mention the crystallised halter neck are all combined to make this stand out piece by Australian designer Christopher Esber.

It’s one thing to wear an incredible piece that makes you feel empowered and strong, but it’s another when it’s an incredible piece by someone who has quickly become a dear friend whom you are both able to support and share in each other successes.

I wore this during Paris Haute Couture Week to Miu Miu’s show and celebration of the launch of their first fragrance. Paired with a deep red lip and my ever changing hair colour (it’s somewhere between copper and red right now, maybe even a hint of orange, I don’t know…) and I was ready for my first event of the week.

I can’t even begin to tell you how hot it was in Paris during Paris Haute Couture Week so I won’t even attempt to try. Instead, the pieces in my wardrobe seemed to shrink as the temperatures soared and we found refuge inside the shows while we fanned ourselves with our invitations. Humid days like this call for minimal styling with the romance of Paris calling for a feminine touch.
