Baz Luhrmann, better known for his role as Director to some of the most elaborate and glamorous Hollywood movies such as The Great Gatsby, Australia, Moulin Rouge, Strictly Ballroom and Romeo + Juliet, put together a magnificent launch of the Emporium Melbourne; the newest retail development in the heart of the city.
Naturally, an invitation to such an event requires a certain dress code, and in this case the invitation came with a wardrobe instruction 'reimagined glamour'. Reimagined, in my thoughts, would mean giving something old a new style, which is easy given the philosophy of my own wardrobe. I chose to wear:

Black Top Shop Dress, eBay
Yellow T-bar Heels, Vinnies
Karen Millen Fluffy Collar Coat, Old
Given the exclusivity of the party, we were not allowed to bring a guest, however, fellow blogger and pal Maria aka Sleekit also received an invitation, so the two of us donned our glad rags and set off for a mid-week night of red carpet shenanigans.
Baz certainly knows how to to party, we were treated to never ending top ups of Chandon served by suited men on roller-skates, glitter falling from the ceiling, show girls, a trapeze artist, war-era dancers, live music, a live DJ, a fine food banquet, singers, fluorescent horses with break-dancing jockey's and statuesque ladies wearing over-the-top fascinators, stunning ladies stamping grapes in a huge barrel, a fine damsel with huge hair draped across a piano and lots more that we probably missed.
We are still buzzing from the Baz quite frankly, and can honestly say, that was a night to a remember.
