Cheers! Here’s to date night done right, feeling fabulous with a hint of sexy. It seems that first date drinks are quickly replacing the traditional dinner date, a transition I’m definitely partial to.  After all, a glass of bubbly certainly takes the edge off an awkward first encounter.

So, first things first, what does one wear to cheeky first date drinks? Playing the dating game myself, I’m all for helping out a sister! So here are my top 4 tips to styling a fabulous, (champagne friendly) first date outfit.

1. Like Paris, an LBD is always a good idea. Classic and understated, a little black dress will have you feeling fierce and sexy as you sip your cosmo. Not to mention, black is a slimming colour, so you’ll be your most confident you!

2. Put your best foot forward with a point. Point heels are very flattering, helping to extend the line of your leg and create the illusion of long, slim pins!

3. Show off a little sparkle. Other than your stellar personality, a little bit of bling shows you’re a girl with good taste.

4. Embrace your natural beauty. It’s no secret that men love natural beauty, so keep your makeup game as natural as possible. Think fresh dewy skin, slightly flushed cheeks, a soft lip and subtle highlighting for a little extra glow. Keep eyeliner to a minimum, and instead coat those lashes in luxe mascara. After all, it’s perfectly acceptable to bat those lashes at him!

Do you have a little style secret for a first date? I’de love to hear it first, so leave me a note below!

The week before the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival hits Brisbane, I’m in prep mode, strategically organising my outfits to coordinate with the theme of each show I’m attending. Being the 10th anniversary of Brisbane’s premier fashion event, my wardrobe had to be on fleek all week, starting with a fabulous outfit for the opening Myer SS16 Show. What better way to start the week, then with an edgy lbd?

I’m suddenly out of my conservative comfort zone and into a Bec & Bridge cocktail dress, featuring an allover sporty mesh fabric and sheer panelled neckline. I’m not sure whether it was the fitted form or the deep v neckline (or both), but I felt feminine and sexy showing off my curves. I’m also loving the structure of this fluted skirt!

Rocking a black on black ensemble right down to the footwear, I’m breaking in my new Wittner heels which feature the fierce lace up design that’s heavily on trend this season. Now to emulate the ladyboss strut of Jennifer Hawkins as she hits the MBFF runway…watch this space!
