Ruby Slipper @ Maling Road

Like a school excursion but so, oh so much better, Pybus PR‘s extravagant day out for bloggers on vintage chi-chi Maling Road, Canterbury was an absolute delight.

Ruby Slipper @ The Peach Launch

There’s been so much girlpower in the news recently. From our Prime Minister’s speech calling out rusted-on misogyny through to the growth of Destroy The Joint (so-called for Alan Jones’ comment saying that women were ‘destroying the joint’), we feel a fresh rush positive of feminism around us. Included in this zeitgeist of powerful female voices is …

Ruby Slipper @ LMFF Launch Party & Runway

L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival swung into full gear by the waterside at Docklands last night, with a block-style party launch to the anticipated David Jones Runway. Bright eyed and bushy-tailed, Melbournites flocked to the much-publicized launch for a serious dose of people-watching and fashionising. I was dressed by local Melbourne fashion label Leiela for the event …
