Evening With Our Designers

Last week brought with it The Strand Arcade's Evening With Our Designers! 
It's a great chance to treat yourself to some new spring/summer shopping (even if it is only window shopping)!

Indulging in some well deserved complimentary snacks!

These glasses were my favourite find of the night, what do you think?

Old Hat Winter Warmer

Another month, another Old Hat shin-dig!
This event was hosted at Palmer & Co, a prohibition style speakeasy just off George Street, Sydney.
The gents wore suits, the women wore pearls.

I wore my Dita Von Teese Muse Showcase Dress with a peek of lingerie and black leather gloves

My drink of choice was the Doctor.com featuring gin, lavender syrup and lemon. Floral with a sour kick, elegantly served with a light froth and rose petal.

Instagram Abroad

For those who've been following me on Instagram (ecccentricpickles), you'll know I've been bitten by the travel bug and I've been bitten bad. But for those who haven't seen my latest escapades, here's a taste of my overseas adventures and hint of my future blog posts!

My first day in Red Square, Moscow
(hence the ecstatic grin)

Peterhof Palace, Saint Petersburg

Breath-taking Geirangerfjord, Norway

Meeting the locals, Russia

Enjoying the sun, Copenhagen

Jazz Festival, Copenhagen

Dreamy Prague

Bakelite goodness from Vienna

Beautiful glasshouses that have now become my obsession, Vienna

Endless alleyways...

... and sparkling water in Venice

Though it was sad to leave, I'm delighted to be back home with friends, family and of course, you!
Tell me, what have you been up to, you sly foxes?
