Ask Vydia | Party Dresses for New Years

Hi Vydia Merry Christmas! Would you be able to do a blog post on party dresses for new years. I love your blog and your style, so any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much xx Lottie

Hey gorgeous, do you have any ideas for what to wear to christmas/new year parties? I'm looking for something short but still elegant and classy, and definitely something that wont break the bank! Love to hear your thoughts. Love, Tahlia

Outfit Of The Day 11.11.13


This outfit is all about bringing together the staples. Denim. Leather. Black. Leopard. I've found myself literally living in my Toi Et Moi Montrer skinnies which have that waxed denim look, perfect for everyday as they are so so versatile. I've also been getting plenty of questions about these leopard espadrilles, they are actually from Nine West and are a great affordable alternative if you've had your eyes on the Senso Mollys. However they're not on their website so I would recommend hitting up your nearest store to check them out! I got mine from the Nine West at Chaddy.

Spencer Outlet Centre


Spencer Street Outlet has recently undergone a makeover and if you ever needed a reason to pop in for a spot of shopping (and a bargain), now would be the time. I recently attended the launch of the new precinct which now includes stores like Trade Secrets, Harris Scarfe and Cotton On Mega. The launch was hosted by the gorgeous Rachel Finch and had DJ Didier Cohen working the decks.

Styling | The VR Verdict x Chadstone


I'm back for round 2 with Chadstone, The Fashion Capital. I've styled 2 new outfits (pictured on the 2 far right mannequins) that will be on display in Chaddy for the next couple of weeks, and just like last time, you'll have the chance to win your fave look! The 2 outfits, styled from pieces from Alannah Hill and Jigsaw, are both perfect for summer and can easily transition from a day to night look. The first look (pictured second from the far right), features pieces from Alannah Hill. I'm not usually a huge Alannah Hill person (the frills and bows don't exactly suit me) so I was completely surprised I could put together this outfit and still have it reflect my style. I'm loving lace in all colours this season, and paired with a printed pencil skirt, looks demure but still on trend. My second look is definitely a lot more laid back and casual, and features pieces available from Jigsaw. I'm a huge fan of a plain white shirt, especially tucked into some tailored shorts. These navy shorts are actually a polkadot print, perfect if you still like looking a little monochrome even in summer.

Skin Elements by Rakis on Collins


I've been dying for a spa day ever since the end of uni and exams! If you're ever in the CBD or just looking for a great new luxe beauty salon, I've found a hidden gem in Skin Elements by Rakis (the award winning hair salon) on Collins St, just opposite the Regent Theatre. My beauty therapist Yumi, was an absolute pleasure to be around and really went above and beyond to make my visit at SE a memorable one! I was booked in for the much needed Luxury Pedi and Mani (for my usual white shellac of course) and highly recommend it not only for yourself but also as a gift for friends or family members in need of some R&R. I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
