diamond in the rough


Recently i bought my first BEBE Sydney dress from fashion boutique 'Principessa' in Fortitude Valley, where i met Rocco the lovely shop owner. I have been longing to buy one for awhile...

I wasn't initially going in to buy a dress as it was only that morning when i was at 'Always Habit' a fashion & suits shop for men with my fiancee who was trying on suits for our wedding, we met the adorable Chantelle who invited us to her & fashion partner Samantha's upcoming fashion launch for their label 'Ash to Gold'. So when my eyes gazed upon this gorgeous antique gold/champagne sequined 'diamond in the rough' dress i instantly fell in love & to my delight it was designed by fashion label BEBE Sydney. Rocco must have seen my enthusiasm as he instantly whisked me off to the changing rooms, and from there on it was a winner!

I had so much fun at the 'Ash to Gold' fashion launch, hanging out with my good friend Desiree (best makeup artist ever) & my fiancee, chatting and sitting front row at the runway show sipping on champagne in the Rainbow Booth at the whimsical Cloudland Bar . Through out the evening i was shocked at how many people complimented me on my outfit.. thinking maybe i should wear this dress more often hah :-) i may have not taken many photos of the night but i thoroughly enjoyed the show, dinner in Chinatown and all the lovely compliments :-).

I'd like to say thank you to Chantelle for inviting me to the her fashion launch, thank you to Rocco for encouraging me to try the dress on & thank you BEBE Sydney  for designing such a gorgeous dress!!
