Modern Wedding Attire - The Black Trend
Do you love to wear black to EVERY event? Well good news... wearing black to weddings is on the rise!
Traditionally women have shied away from this dark hue when choosing their wedding frock, but fashion has evolved and so has our mindset. The key to picking the perfect style for the mother of the bride/groom, or guest of a wedding is first and foremost, comfort! If you are part of the bridal party, a perk of a black frock is you are camera ready at all times and don't have to worry about colour-clashing with another guest.
Black doesn't have to be boring, our wedding range includes stunning embellishments and features to make your look one of a kind!

Cruise in Style - Things to Pack
Part of the fun of a cruise is getting dressed up. The right clothes can really put you in the mood, and make your trip feel so much more enjoyable. Here’s a look at a few of the latest cruise wear trends to make your trip fabulous.
What to pack when going a cruise?
1. Crop pants
Perfect for walking around the ship or on an offshore excursion like shopping or sightseeing. If you're on the shorter side you can still wear cropped pants, just go for a slim cut crop pant. The Miracle crop pants by Gordon Smith or these Miranda Pants are packing essentials. They also look great with a wedge heel.
2. Floaty tops
Perfect to pair with crop pants - a floaty top has 'relaxed holiday' written all over it. A top like the Channing Top by Joseph Ribkoff is the perfect combination of relaxed easy dressing without compromising looks.
Pack a sundress or two! A maxi and midi dress is a good combination. A maxi can be worn with flat shoes and sun hat during the day and dressed up with heels and dangly earring and bangle for a night time on board concert.
This Carina midi sundress is perfect for travel in an easy care crinkle fabric.
4. Dinner Date
For the evenings when you dine in a more formal setting or even at the "captain's table" you will want to pack a stylish dress. You can easily kick on after dinner while you're feeling glamourous ... perhaps for some dancing!
This black drape goddess dress can be dressed up or down and will have your feeling ready for a gorgeous night out.
5. Don't forget a few layers. For cooler days or evenings pack a jacket and a cardigan. This Juanita Jacket looks great teamed with your white capri pants!
Some extras to consider are; a few pairs of nice earrings, these help dress up any outfit (see above picture). Some flat sandals in gold or silver, metallics are more 'lux' and versatile than everyday white or black and tend to go with more outfits reducing your packing space. Add a cool pair of sunglasses, a gorgeous sun hat and finish with a versatile tote that will take you from the onboard pool deck to exploring the streets on your new destination.
Wedding Attire? Whats Trending This Autumn 2017
Ok your off to a wedding but it's been a while. What are the trends for the wedding season this Autumn 2017. What to wear as a wedding guest or even as Mother of the bride or groom?
Block colours are popular at the moment with gorgeous blues or corals.
Classic nude tones are still going strong this year and can be worn in any season. Very popular with Mother of the Bride and Groom as dresses in nude or champagne hues compliment most bridal party attire. Black is no longer taboo at weddings and is perfectly suited to more formal weddings.
Hem Lines are near the knee with figure flattering cuts and open sleeves.
Shoulders are bared just a little to give a romantic feel.
Sheer elements enhance your outfit. A soft layer over your dress is very flattering. A similar look can be achieved by adding sheer wrap to your wedding outfit.

Office Christmas Party & Cocktail Dresses
Sophisticated dresses are the key to to looking well dresses this party season. A dress that can move easily from day to night is perfect. Joseph Ribkoff is a popular brand for cocktail events because they create elegant dresses that flatter women of any age. Partner with a soft chiffon wrap to create a stunning looks this season.
December catch ups and Christmas Day with friends and family calls for a different style of dress. A cool comfortable dress that is fun to wear is perfect for summer bbq gatherings.

Dresses designed to emphasise your best bits and 'gloss over' areas you would prefer go un-noticed is the art to glamour dressing. After all by definition glamour is the appearance of enhanced attractiveness and for formal events you want to look your glamorous best!
Resort and Cruise Wear.
If you're heading off on holiday pack a quality dress that you can wear for a variety of occasions - dress it up or down by pairing with different shoes and accessories gives you excellent flexibility and reduces the amount you have to pack. For dress versatility it's hard to go past a versatile LBD!
Spring Racewear Guide
Ahh spring racing, what's not to love! Finally some warmer weather and a chance to shed winter layers for feminine outfits while enjoying champagne and a day of racing action.
Select an outfit that best reflects your style, body shape and something you will feel comfortable in, nothing too small or too big. Wardrobe Fashion chooses racewear fashion to make you look and feel fabulous - racewear collection.
Here are some hints to help you look and feel your best this spring racing carnival.
Wear shoes that you can walk in all day long. There is nothing worse than sore feet and the Spring Racing Carnival is about enjoying yourself - don’t let a pair of shoes let you down! Low heels are fine and a great tip is to find a block heel for when you're standing on the lawn.
Styling isn’t limited to just the clothing. You can make a simple dress into an amazing outfit with accessories such as with jewellery, gloves, handbags, belts and shoes. A great tip is to work with no more than three colours in your look.
Dress according to the weather that day. Sometimes you need to adapt to the ever changing weather so have a jacket of cardigan handy.
Rarely in today's fashion do you get the chance to wear a beautiful head piece, so don't forget about a hat or fascinator to complete your outfit. A clever idea is to order something from your local florist that coordinates with your outfit for an effortless beautiful look.
Some ideas for race day hair can be found here - race day hair.
Style your hair and makeup to suit the look you have chosen. Remember race day is a daytime event so keep your makeup natural and fresh using nude tones, dewy skin (not too matte) and blushing cheeks is always a good look for spring racing fashion and don't forget the sunscreen - red shoulders and nose is not a glamourous look.
Prior preparation can help make your day go smoothly and you will look polished - so don’t forget your nails, scrub your heels and book your hair appointment.
Looking forward to the racing action - here is a link to the Spring Racing Calendar
