I think I’m not the only one always on the look out for the perfect LBD – Little Black Dress.

They are such a versatile item that can be dressed up, down and in-between.

So I was super excited when Adrift Clothing contacted me and ask if I would like to receive a piece of clothing from their new season.

There was so many beautiful pieces I struggled to make a decision.

Have I mentioned before when confronted with so many beautiful pieces I can be a bit like a deer in the headlights.

There were so many of my favourite things – boho inspired prints, off the shoulder tops (I think I will be back for this one) and stripes with sequins (check out Bev from Iris May Style and her daughter in their striped sequin tops).

But I came across this Ava Dress in black $169.95 and knew it had to be mine.


What I love about it was its relaxed fit, half sleeves, knee length and the lace insert that took it from a plain black dress to something special.

I also knew that this dress would be perfect for so many occasions.

Versatility in a dress is like the holy grail, it even beats a dress with pockets – yes I did just say that!


This was the perfect dress to wear to the inaugural Style plus Champagne High Tea by Styling YouChampagne Cartel last Saturday Afternoon.

I added to my Ava Dress my favourite pair of Witchery Leopard Print Booties (sold out), these shoes are perfect addition and being that it was sitting down there was no issue with shoes feet.

Louenhide Clutch – no longer available similar style here , lyas Honey Jewellery Watercress Black Onyx Pendant $70.00 and Michael Kors Rose Gold Watch.

My denim jacket is my go to accessory as the weather cools – we are blessed with quite a mild winter in Queensland and a denim jacket is a must have.

This one was kindly gifted from Rockmans Fashion at only $39.95 its a great option – it’s no longer available online but you can still pick one up in store. For a limited time all full priced stock is currently 30% off.

My other must have is a pair of tan booties – these are the fabulous Liz from Frankie 4.

There is a lot of fuss around the Frankie 4 range, if you haven’t tried on a pair you need to and you will have understand immediately. This fit and comfort is amazing.



I love the tan black colour combination – the contrast is just gorgeous.

So with that in mind I have added a Surafina Noir Drape Vest – Tan (the tan version is no longer available but you can still purchase the black & its currently on sale for $89.00).

For that in between weather toeless booties is a way to wear boot without getting too hot. These were a present from hubby a couple of years ago.
