This week I was invited to a Private Dinner preview (along with the glitterati of Brisbane fashion scene) of what’s on at Westfield Carindale this AW/16, hosted by the stunning Nikki Phillips.




From the moment the lift doors opened on the rooftop we were transformed into the Your Style is In The Stars – #CosmicUpLate theme.

I had to force myself away from following the purdy twinkly lights that littered the ground and I am glad because the magic kept coming.

The 3 course dinner under the stars was stellar – salmon gravalax with oeuf parisienne, lemon zested crème fraiche and black tobikko to start followed by poached chicken roulade on ginger sweet potato purée with nori and wakame salad.




As I am sugar-free the petite charcoal waffle cones filled with vanilla bean ice cream, raspberry and silver leaf were left to those around me to enjoy but the real stars of the show were the outfits and models.

Hair by OscarOscar and makeup by Mac, Dior, YSL, Lancome & Napoleon, the female models were styled by Nikki Phillips in her  chosen 3 key AW/16 trends – Metallics ( isn’t that a neutral at STEELEMyStyle ? ) – Boho Luxe and Minimalist.




The standouts for me were the Aje metallic Sorian Skirt and Donna Dress shown below – (L and R)  available from Myer at Carindale.




I love the campaign message for Westfield #OwnYourStory which is very in line with my own philosophy style is not formulaic it is a true expression of your personality, mood and inspiration.

Individuality is always on trend !

The best bit of the night was definitely arriving and finding one of my favourite fellow stylist ladies was there – work has been so busy recently I have been unable to meet up for #girlganghangs so we had heaps of catch ups about our babies, husbands, life, love and of course style under the stars.


Thank you Elyse Goyan,  the team at FS Group and Westfield Carindale for the invite  – can’t wait to be instore shopping up a treat with clients. Thank you to the gorgeous folk at Molten Store for my moon necklace I am wearing it as I write.
