Frockin' Up - Gala Style

Friday, October 12, 2012


This is what I wore to the Alice Springs Desert Festival Bush Foods Gala. The dress code was 'semi-formal', which in the Territory tends to be code for 'no thongs' (ie 'flipflops') and 'no t-shirts' or simply code for 'wear a shirt'. We took it to mean pants and heels & black. All the girls I went with wore black & three of us managed to have the black pants, black shirt & heels combo. I swear we did not plan this! At least one of us branched out with a black dress. 

It was fun trying out heels. I must confess I have a number of pairs of heels that I never wear. I just cannot put up with sore feet & so I generally go with the flats. But heels do (funnily enough) make me just that little bit taller, which is nice. But not nice enough to wear heels all the time. Platform wedges do make the whole heels thing a little bit easier. Are you a heels girl? Or do you go the comfort foot option like I normally do?


  1. I'm a sucker for how my legs/body look in heels so I wear them even though they kill me by the end of the night. But I love summertime as a wedge is so much more comfortable!

    Having said this... I can count on one hand the number of times I've worn heels since Alice was born!

    Great outfit!

    1. Thanks! Maybe if I had long legs I'd wear them more? Though you'd think that with me being so short I would wear them more?!

  2. I absolutely love that blazer, gorgeous!

    I am a huge heels girl. Love them (I'm short too). I have two little boys though so my heels days are mostly over these days. I do appreciate a cute pair of flats though!


Thanks for stopping by x
