Black tie events are always so much fun to attend partly because of the sheer enjoyment that comes from being able to get really dressed up. Being able to wear an amazing ball gown is a huge departure from my usual uniform of jeans and sneakers so it was so exciting to be able to attend the NGV Gala over the weekend and really dial up the glamour.
The Steven Khalil dress I wore was an absolute dream. I tried on a few options but I immediately loved the fitted bodice and full skirt of the dress when I saw it. Elegant and sexy all at the same time, plus you really can’t go wrong with black when it comes to dressy occasions.
Wearing black often requires statement accessories to lift it and give it some depth so I opted for a fun metallic pink Bvlgari bag from my wardrobe. It’s a shade that makes a great contrast piece and added a nice pop of colour to my ensemble. As far as jewellery went, I went for a pair of amazing drop earrings and a bangle. Just enough bling to stand out without it being too overwhelming.
It was so much fun to be able to step away from my everyday wardrobe and explore such a high glam look. Every girl needs a reason to get dolled up once and awhile, right?
