Day 362-2/365: Gay Paris at the Sydney Harbour...

Vintage hat (I wore a pink version at Trivia, this is my second, white one!), Ken Done glasses, Tatty Devine harlequin necklace, Sue Bookallil 1980s bolero from op shop, Ken Done doona dress made by Jo, Oroton belt from op shop, vintage petticoat, Jonathan Aston tights, Fluevogs, Ken Done handbag donated by Ken & Judy Done.

I'm off to Gay Paris tonight! It's a charity black tie function for the wonderful Aurora Group Foundation, and I have the honour of being their key note speaker. I have to tell you, Ken Done butterflies are dancing around my stomach madly! How lucky am I to get the chance to talk to people like the Governor of NSW, the Lord Mayor of Sydney and a bunch of other *good* people about What Ken Be Done?!

It certainly helps then to have this *stunning* handmade dress, made by Jo. She's taken a 1980s Ken Done doona and sewn it into a classic 1980s sun dress. I commissioned this piece, because I've always had my eye on a 1980s dress with a heart-shape neckline. With only three days left, I wanted to make sure my own wardrobe keeps a few Ken Done *gems*... I can't just give up on The Guru!
Another treat to keep me in the vintage party mode in this 1970s ring gifted to me by the Live In Photographer's (LiP) Mum, Pam. Check out this fabulous shot of her going out one night to a fancy do in the 70s wearing the ring. Her own Mum made her dress - purple crepe - which would have matched the ring like a dream. And what else can I say really, but LOVE THE HAIR, PAM!!

Have a wonderful evening, everyone xo

With only 3 days to go:
