If I was a man, I'd wear this..........

Sometimes I daydream about what kind of man I would be.

 Don't you?

Well anyway, I know I'd be a Dandy.

I'd get my hair and beard trimmed at Captains of Industry,

Get my shirts made to measure there too,

My accessories from Lord Coconut,

And I'd fly to London to get my suits made here............

Look closely at this photo.Now squint your eyes, and where it says Bespoke Tailors, imagine' Sunshine & Daydreams' bespoke for big and little girls.That's what we are working towards.

It looks like this at the moment

 I discovered Thom Sweeney, while reading Business of Fashions daily blog on the revitalisation of bespoke men's tailoring.(read the full article here).

It warms the cockles of my heart to read about how young men are embracing quality over quantity.It seems that small businesses specialising in made to measure, quality garments that are made to last, with expert service in a stylish and creative environment, are booming.

Now I just have to hope that girls will follow this trend.

Goldie Jewellery Launch

I was so excited to be invited to the Goldie jewellery launch,(checkout their range here)at Surround in St Kilda. I was the very first person to RSVP (very uncool, mistake number 1)

In my previous life, I use to go to these sorts of things, but after about 10 years of being off the fashion radar, I was a self conscious nervous wreck. (mistake number 2)

At least I got my dress made in time, and Jennie looked the part in her Miss Moneypenny dress.

The jewellery was amazingly beautiful

Beautiful Bianca eyeing off 21st birthday present ideas.

And I spent the evening trying to not to get eye contact  with people I  used to know

How silly am I? I didn't speak to one person, not even the owners of Surround (check them out here), who had sent the invitation. Because of my social awkwardness, people probably think I'm an incredibly rude snob (big mistake number3)

How hard is it to actually go up to someone and shake their hand and introduce yourself?!?
I'm so mad at myself

Anyway, I have another thing to go to this Friday. Pozible's 3rd birthday party at Hub.

So I need a new dress, and a complete personality makeover.
I'll let you all know how it goes.

Anna May Wong, Fashion Icon

You may not have heard of Anna May Wong, but in 1920's & 30's Hollywood, she was a big star.

And I'm using her as my inspiration for my Melbourne Cup season head pieces.

Previous Work

It looks like I'm getting myself organised early this year.

So, If you are equally as organised, I can match a beautiful head piece to any big or little girl's outfit.

Or even better still, if you have a lovely boutique or department store? I'd love to hear from you.

New party season 2013 photos coming soon.
