An Instagrammers Meet Up In Melbourne

 Last weekend I flew to Melbourne to share a weekend of fun, fashion and conversation with these stylish women that I met through the joy of Instagram.
L-R Suzanne  @airofdistinction, Silvana@embellish_or_perish, me, Elizabeth@timeless_styling.

 Elizabeth is from Brisbane in Queensland  and we met last year when I was there on holiday. We have kept in touch online but it was so good to catch up in person again.

 After lunch and a spot of shopping , guided by Suzanne who is a Melbourne local and a fashion stylist and of course knows the best spots for something special, we headed to Hosier Lane , a popular photographic location with its street art.

 Instagrammers in action, I had to show the back of Silvana’s Frida jacket by Suzi Click that she purchased on a recent trip to L.A.

 Elizabeth found her Italian linen dress at a local thrift shop and added the applique and embroidery.
A perfectly co-ordinated bangle stack , rings and necklaces in a variety of colours and shape the perfect finishing touches., as are those glorious metallic brogues.

 Silvana hails from the mid New South Wales coast and is a lover of colour and accessories and has the most glorious silver tresses .I also wish to thank Silvana for generously sharing her photos , I have included some here along with several of mine.

I went for my favourite all black – Moyuru skirt, Issey Miyake pleats please jacket ( purchased at a recycle store last year in Paris), teamed with black and white bangles , black and white diamond shape earrings that I found at a little shop in an arcade the day before , Preen black and white sunnies and silver shoes.

We topped off a memorable weekend with a visit to the National Gallery of Victoria for the 70 years of Dior exhibition. A post of the exhibition will follow as soon as I have finished sorting my many photographs.
