And if you have a moment somewhere in all the excitement, here is my offering for this week's links...
+ Some party inspiration in the form of chic black dresses from the pages of Marie Claire UK by Frederick Pinet. Sometimes it's all about the dress right? More images via FGR.
+ A lovely short film of behind the scenes from the cover shoot of the current Australian Vogue. With Arizona Muse channelling a 40's Lauren Bacall vibe, it certainly inspires a laidback, elegant style that we could all bring to christmas lunch I think. View here.
+ You know I love a little sneak peek behind the scenes... especially something leading up to a catwalk show. Well I enjoyed this video of the Chanel Cruise 2014 runway held in Singapore earlier this year. When a video starts with a little Matt Bianco, you just got to sit up and watch/listen; fittings, craftsmanship, and pulling it together for a glittery night. See for yourself here via FGR.
+ Loved this editorial from The Cut featuring some staple pieces in an elegant monochrome inspiration for work, weekend, and travel. View more images here.
+ You are going to love this beautiful home in South Melbourne featured in The Design Files this week with its mix of old, rustic, new and designer it goes down a treat! But this dining area in particular, for me... that wall, that Serge Mouille lighting, the Thonet chairs, the cantilevered bench seating... View more here.
+ And last but not least, for all the Aussies out there - buy yourself a packet of Tim Tams and then follow the link to Moonblush Baker and indulge in a Tim Tam Slammer Frozen Yoghurt. I nearly fell off my chair when I found all this deliciousness... I had to share! It's got yoghurt in the recipe - so it's got to be good for you right?
Have a lovely weekend!
