Rundle Place & Ted Baker

 Today I have a fresh-faced fashion afterglow.
After the much anticipated opening of
the new Rundle Place in Rundle Mall yesterday, I must say I was thoroughly impressed.
Add to the mix the most impressive VIP experience 
at the brand new Ted Baker store, all I can say 
is Adelaide, it's about time.
Editors and fashion experts were invited to an exclusive look 
at the new Ted Baker store and treated to a VIP wine tour at Penfold's Estate.
Chauffeured in vintage cars and sipping on Grange, epitomised the Ted Baker experience.
Their brand and offer in store is all about the details.
Hailing from London, Ted Baker offers a wide range of collections including; menswear, 
womenswear, accessories, fragrance, footwear, eyewear and watches. 
The style is classic, elegant, timeless and tailored, 
plus there is something for all price points and budgets.
The size range is from a 0 - 4. 
4 being an Aus size 14.

The new Rundle Place precinct is a great addition to the Rundle Mall landscape.
It looks and feels a bit like Chadstone in Melbourne.
It has a fresh white clean feel. Modern shop fronts let the products speak
for themselves.
Our favourite offers? Seduce (yay!), Vince Camuto, Ted Baker,
David Lawrence and Jigsaw.

All Ted Baker stores work to the theme of the city. Our Adelaide store has a wine theme...of course!

Lisa Ho VIP winter showing

 I was treated to a VIP look at the new season collection 
at Lisa Ho in Rundle Street East last night. 
Champagne and macrons were a dangerous combo, 
combined with the 15% off the whole range... I felt a spending spree coming on!
I loved the graphic prints, investment jackets and the leather.
With a nod to the sixties the pieces were chic and timeless.
 Never one to slavishly follow trends, Lisa Ho understands 
the needs of modern women and her pieces always 
fit seamlessly into my working wardrobe.
My favourite thing?
Lisa Ho employs over 100 people, and has created a business 
model that has become a 
reference point for others in the industry. 
It is accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia for her standards in workplace practices.
Gotta love supporting a store that supports 
the local economy and creates jobs in the fashion industry for Australians.

VIP jewellery heaven

Yesterday the girls at the office were treated to a VIP viewing of the 
Autore pearl collection at Casa D'Oro on King William Road.
With the store to ourselves and a glass of Verve Cliquot in hand we were draped 
in the most exquisite south sea pearls.
The collection was in Adelaide for one day only and has completely 
changed our perception on these precious gems.
No longer a stone in granny's jewellery collection, the designs and styles 
are a complete indulgence for the modern women.
Our favourites? The cocktail rings...devine.  

We want these!

Black pearls set with diamonds and emeralds

I got to put these babies on! Gorgeous diamond and emeralds.

The prize piece, with an $100,000.00 price tag. Swoon.

Working pearls into your look. Fresh and classic.
