Yesterday, my husband and I had the pleasure of attending Domaine Chandon's Secret Garden Party, in the picturesque Yarra Valley.

The picture perfect afternoon was spent enjoying Chandon’s finest vintages, delicious culinary treats (of which included these very pretty 'edible pot-plants'), the beautiful voice of Clare Bowditch and of course some garden twister, croquet and chess.

A scene taken straight from The Great Gatsby.

A big thank you to Domaine Chandon and Undertow Media for such a stunning afternoon.

L'OREAL MELBOURNE FASHION FESTIVAL 2013



Friends, it is with great excitement that I share with you, that I have been announced as an ambassador for the 2013 L'Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival.

This means, that I'll be bringing you the best on and off the runway action over the 1 week long festival, which is set to be a fashion feast.

Today I, alongside fellow ambassadors (Fen, Chelsea, Davis and Megan), attended the official program launch, announcing an amazing line-up of beautiful runways, as well as the involvement of one of my design favourites in this year's festival - Mary Katrantzou.

You can view the full program online. My hot picks are the opening event presented by David Jones and Vogue,  L'Oreal Paris Runway 1, presented by Vogue.com.au and runway 3 presented by Grazia.

If you're in Melbourne during the festival, do make sure you pick up tickets, it's going to full of great surprises. If you aren't in Melbourne - I'll be brining you all the exclusives, so be sure to stay tuned to instagram (@friendinfashion) and twitter for all the updates.

HOUNDSTOOTH

As soon as I laid eyes on these incredible houndstooth shorts, I had to have them!

Manning Cartell has to be one of my favourite Australian labels, always feminine and always the right balance of on-trend pieces and classic wardrobe must-haves.

After NYE celebrations, lined up for tomorrow evening (you can check out my party outfit HERE), I'm off again on another road-trip of Australia, driving from Melbourne, all the way up North, to the Sunshine Coast.

Beaches, sunshine, and great adventures - bring it on!

Instagram (@friendinfashion), facebook & twitter to follow all the fun.

Happy new year to all of my beautiful readers.
