Nikki Pash States of Style Dior Highpoint Nadia Bartel

LOCATION: Highpoint Shopping Centre.
STYLE: Dress (Worn as skirt); Mad but Magic. Jumper; Cheap Monday. Shoes; Novo. Necklace; Aristides Fine Jewels.
COMMENT: Fresh faces and fresh flowers were the theme of the Dior ‘Architects of Beauty’ Masterclass held at Highpoint over the weekend. Hosted by Nadia Bartel, the Dior team ran us through how to create a barely-there day look, with a pop of colour on the lips. Nadia was a total pro at both commentating the tutorial as well as asking the team at Dior the questions we weren’t brave enough to put our hand up for (eg. where exactly should that go?!). She did such a good job that we walked into Dior straight after the event and purchased an armful of product. Everybody wins!

COMMENT: As a new Mum, I hadn’t actually taken any time (because with a newborn, who has any spare?) to consider Mothers Day and what it would mean to me so I am eternally grateful to the team at Oh It’s Perfect for creating such an amazing event for Hazel and I to remember as our first together. Maybe it was all the roses, a bit too much sugar or just the fact that Hazel and I were scrubbed up at the same time – rare – that it took me by surprise that I got that knot in my stomach that you get when something means a lot to you. After running around like headless chickens for half the morning to get ready, we were lucky enough to join the beautiful Lana Wilkinson and Sarah Jane with their gorgeous girls for a lavish lunch at The Stables of Como. With balloons floating above us, we tucked into decadent desserts that were quite literally what dreams are made of and left with a bevy of beautiful gifts that made us feel nothing short of spoilt rotten.

There were so many talented businesses involved to create this setting and they’re worth hitting up if you are creating something special. For the full list and links to contact, hit up the Oh It’s Perfect Mother’s Day editorial.

LOCATION: Meat Market, Melbourne.
STYLE: Denim Shirt; Zadig & Voltaire. Clutch; Saint Laurent via The Luxe Collection by L.

COMMENT: I feel like I say this a lot about separate events lately, but when you get an invite to a YSL situation you’re unlikely going to decline. I like to think I’ve become a ‘yes’ sort of person but maybe that’s because it gives me a much needed night off every so often. This event was rock concert meets the cosmetic counter and it made for a night perfect for a birthday girl out on the town!

COMMENT: We are big believers in the finer details and have always appreciated the way beautiful lingerie can change-up your outfit in the best kind of way. Lingerie dressing is beyond a trend and is huge globally for good reason. Our go-to is the iconic French brand known for creative boldness and savoir faire, Simone Pérèle. After recently being awarded the 2017 ‘Designer of the Year’ by the Salon International de la lingerie, Paris, we hit up David Jones to experience their latest collection and fell in love with their Amour Range, featuring an exclusive colour-way for AW17; Blush, Deep Charcoal and Natural. In true East/West style, we opted for opposite colours and had fun selecting outfits to compliment. Over time we have built a solid foundation of Simone Pérèle staples to work into our wardrobes, from silk slips to lace bodysuits and now separates from this new-season line. Perfectly designed lingerie is surely the greatest luxury of all.

For your chance to WIN a set of the Amour Range (in either Blush or Deep Charcoal) head over to the Simone Pérèle blog to enter.

LOCATION: L1 Studio, Melbourne.
STYLE: Dress; Mossman ‘Kissed by a Rose’ Dress. Bag; Saint Laurent from The Luxe Collection by L.
COMMENT: Walking into L1 Studios yesterday was like walking into the ultimate Pintrest board come to life. The warehouse-like space had been decked out to be literally picture perfect. Pandora had set up a beautiful cloud of balloons above low set table dining, where attendees casually chatted on coloured sheepskins. Alexia Petsinis hosted a creative masterclass and we were all tasked with a small jewellery dish to decorate as we pleased; perfectly on brand for both Pandora and Petsinis. The event was to launch their Mother’s Day collection on Thursday which you will be able to shop online here.
