Lacquer


Wearing: Michael Lo Sordo dress, vintage YSL handbag, Zara heels, Uniqlo thermal tights.

Last Sunday evening was the 2012 Bloglovin' Awards here in New York, where it was surreal to be in a ballroom full of those you presume you already know regards to the internet. It was amazing to be able to meet everyone and get to know them personally, seeing just how original and different each personality is rather than assuming from their blogs. Thank you so much to everyone for the support and votes the last few weeks, I know just how blessed I am to have been nominated at all!

Being the only Australian nominated I decided to represent Aussies a little further, wearing this amazing split hem, asymmetrical gold dress by Michael Lo Sordo. The boiled wool with gold lacquer was bold enough with minimal jewellery, and my favourite vintage YSL handbag I found in Paris a years ago for a few Euro.
