Awards Dinner – Cocktail Attire

6 Oct

Had an Awards Dinner to attend for work this week. The dress code said: Cocktail. I chose the above number from Ruby in NZ as I thought the high neck, cap sleeves and neutral tones were work suited… however the gold zip back detail and snug fit kept it age appropriate. I am only 24 after all!

The colour of shoes/accessories was the hard part. I had thought some cute gold strappy heels or Nude platforms would have done the trick… but with my olive tone it started to look too “same:same”… so the black platforms and matching clutch ended up winning on the night!

Tony Bianco Heels

28 Sep

Tony Bianco is an Australian based shoe company that not only makes beautiful shoes but they are also affordable and extremely comfortable! I have rather skinny feet so finding heels that manage to hold my foot in place so that my toes don’t slide all the way down to the pavement was a miracle. And when you are on to a good thing you stick to it. I am pretty sure I now have about 8 pairs of Tony Bianco shoes… and when the shoe buying urge hits me (as it often does) the Tony Bianco website is my first point of call.

Some of my faves at the moment:

Brydie in Black Suede. I have this beauty on pre order at the moment. A staple for this summer I feel!

Shani in fudge monaco/burnish finish. I want these! I have quite a few neutral toned wedges at the moment however so I am trying to figure out a way of convincing myself that these are still a necessity…

Ajana points in white. I am loving the white points all over the fashion pages at the moment. I am seriously considering these as my next purchase.
