Rundle Mall AW14 parade

Last Friday, my friend Amanda and I attended one of the free Rundle Mall AW14 fashion parades, which featured clothing from David Jones, Veronika Maine, Seduce, Peter Jackson, and shoes from Wittner and Betts

The stand-out for me were outfits from Veronika Maine. I have never shopped there or considered it to be my style just from looking in their shop window, but I was really impressed with the mix of roll-neck, sleeveless knits; fuller, below the knee skirts; and classic winter coats. 

Afterwards, we were treated to an after party, featuring wines and cider by Sidewood (Adelaide Hills) and delicious canap├ęs. We also scored a goodie bag each, filled with vouchers, samples and lovely gifts. 

Though I am a Summer girl at heart, I love Winter fashion and am keen to stock up on some of those cosy knits, tailored pants and long coats. 

Shoes by Betts - Dunaden and Cooper.

Loved this outfit paired with flats. 

Totally sold on this grey coat. Loved the shoes too.

Anyone is welcome to buy me this jumpsuit...

...and the gold bolero jacket...

At the after-party with Amanda, drinking Sidewood Estate Isabella Rose sparkling - delicious!

Sephora in Oz

Exciting news - major beauty retailer Sephora is set to open its first store in Australia in 2015.

Sephora has more than 1400 stores across 30 countries, and stocks brands such as Make Up For Ever, Smashbox, Urban Decay, Nars and Stila.

When we were travelling overseas, my friend and I would always stop in at Sephora to discover brands we couldn't buy in Australia and marvel over the range of make-up and beauty products. As a big fan of make-up, I am very excited to be able to visit Sephora in my own country.

Sydney will most likely be home to the first Australian store.

Thanks to The Urban Silhouette for the news.

Are you excited about Australia's first Sephora store?
