If I were to ever subject myself to the tortures of throwing a big wedding, there is no doubt in my mind I would invest in an Alex Perry wedding dress. If I could afford it, I would invest in an Alex Perry dress every time he released a collection. I love his collections that much. Alex Perry is one of those rare male designers who totally understands the body shape of a real woman. The curves, the bumps and how to hold everything in place. There is just no feeling like wearing an Alex Perry dress.

For those of you overseas who haven’t heard of Alex Perry, he is considered the designer of choice for Australian celebrities when it comes to red carpet dressing and their lavish weddings. He is Australia’s best couturier in my opinion. Alex is the design mentor on Project Runway and is a judge on Australia’s Next Top Model (and has been every season since it commenced!). Most recently he has done a few brand collaborations but in my opinion none have really captured the essence of what an Alex Perry design is all about.

Magnolia Silver Jewellery seem to understand that feeling a woman gets when wearing an Alex Perry design and what makes them special. This season they made a move to impress me (yes, I am sure they did it just for me) by collaborating with Alex Perry on a special jewellery collection. Now for a fraction of the cost of one of Alex’s dresses, you can achieve the same joyous emotion by wearing one of his handcrafted luxury jewellery pieces.

Today I want to show you what I consider to be my first piece from the Alex Perry for Magnolia collection. I have no doubt I will be back for more and with Christmas so close I am hoping a few family and friends get this vocal hint about what I want coming my way.  Continue Reading

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading
