Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Lauren Marinis store opening, with my lovely friend Bec from Frocks & Crumpets. You may remember the Australian shoe label from my previous post and interview with the Melbourne designer (HERE). The event was held at the beautiful new store in Rupert st, Collingwood last Saturday afternoon, and it was so great to be invited to share in the celebration of Lauren’s new store.
Staying true to her impeccable style Lauren has created a beautifully light and inspiring space, with sky-high pumps and gorgeous ankle boots displayed on their own individual pedestals, to showcase the works of arts that they really are. It was such a fantastic night, with a combination of some of my favourite things, fashion, cheese, champagne and SHOES!!! I may have even left with a new pair of pumps and boots!
You can purchase Lauren Marinis Shoes at the online store HERE, but I definitely suggest you pop in to have a look at the beautiful presentation of incredible shoes Lauren has to offer. Store is open Wednesdays and Saturdays 11am-4pm at, 74 Rupert Street, Collingwood, VIC, 3066.
Last week, in-between a whirlwind of work, errands and outings, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week came and went. I have finally gotten through watching the shows and am so excited for fashion this upcoming spring/summer, even though we’re only hitting colder weather now. Here are some of my favourite looks from MBFWA. It seems I have a thing for volume at the moment. It’s all about full skirts, long vests, and roomy tops.

Fashion blogs are going crazy at the moment with talk of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia, which started yesterday morning. It’s been driving me crazy that I have not yet had the chance to check out what Australian designers have in store for us this year. But yesterday kept me nice and busy, and so I only got small glimpses on what was going on from Twitter and Instagram.
Yesterday was a special day, as it was Grange’s mum’s birthday, and so my day was spent, working…then, dining, celebrating and stuffing my face with cake.
But it was also a special day for me, because it was exactly 6 months since I started Lilt-blog. I really enjoy posting on the blog and creating a little space where I can put my thoughts and inspirations, and although I have been a little quieter than usual these past couple of months, I have lots planned for the blogs future! Thank you to anyone and everyone who checks out my blog posts, likes my statuses and reads my rambling thoughts.
So now I am going to celebrate this half birthday, with some left over cake, cup of tea and pretty pictures of whats been going on at MBFWA.
Currently I’m slightly obsessed with the LIFEwithBIRD “Collide Dress”. I’ve seen it floating around some magazines and in a couple of blogs lately, and my goodness, I WANT IT IN MY LIFE! It’s the incredible mix of colours, and the quality of the digital print that has won my heart. The fact that it is by an Australian label and printed on stretch Silk Crepe De Chine, also helps. I have been keeping my eyes open for a new dress to wear to a formal occasion that I have coming up, but unfortunately this baby was way too short. However I did pick up another LIFEwithBIRD number which is perfect for the occasion. More on that bad boy later this week.

I’ve been out of action for a while but I’m back!… Now, lets talk yellow coats, they have made a strong appearance on street style blogs and catwalks. Would love to get my hand on a nice tailored coat in such a bold colour. What a lovely way to add a bit of sunshine to Autumn and Winter… Don’t you think?

Lately I have been thinking a lot about love heart rings. They are so sweet, classic and girly. I’ve been on the hunt for one for a while and Pink LouLou has such a wonderful selection…now I just need to decide on which one I want!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you all!
