Starry Starry Night

Jeez Louise, what a bananas crazy pants week it has been. Last Saturday, I flew down to Melbourne with my Dancing With The Stars partner Aric and the rest of the cast in order to attend the big annual Alannah and Madeline Foundation Starry Starry Night gala ball! Along with being selected to host a table, Aric and I were honoured to be asked to perform a dance on the night. We chose a cha cha to Jennifer Lopez's Let's Get Loud, which we had prepared for the Party Week episode. While I spent half of the night being so nervous about the dance that I couldn't eat, and the other half being so relieved it was over that I could faint, it was a spectacular night and a lot of money was raised for the fantastic charity. In spite of my nauseating nerves, our dance went very well (I will be receiving video footage from the evening soon, so continue to check my InstagramFacebookTwitter and Tumblr pages to see it!) and it was a lovely way to reunite the gang. 

Happy to be back with my girl Torah and her DWTS partner Robbie!

Aric and I performing our cha cha!

Our finale, in which I get to shove Aric to the ground, satisfying many a fantasy dreamed up during gruelling training sessions. ;-)

With Dancing With The Stars dancers and fellow Starry Starry Night performers Robbie, Damien, Ash-Leigh, Kym (one of the show's judges and a terrific dancer!), Carmello and Aric

Couldn't resist slipping into the dress Kym wore for her dance... Maximum showgirl vibes!

Marky Knows Best


Dress: CANDELA via Free People  |  Bangles: Lisa Black Jewellery  |  Earrings: Lisa Black Jewellery  |  Sunglasses: Chanel

My girlfriend Emma just launched a super awesome new blog, which is obviously cause for a garden party-type celebration! We got our mormon vibes on in white dresses, learned how to make pretty cocktails and finished the night off with donut burgers (is it crazy that it was the second time I've consumed one of these diabetes-inducing treats? Probably, considering I was nearly sick after the first.)
Peep more photos HERE and Emma's hot new blog HERE.

Mockingjay


Jumpsuit: Ruby Sees All  |  Shoes: Christian Louboutin  |  Bangles: Lisa Black Jewellery

On Friday night, I headed out in my fly jumpsuit and sassy cornrows for the premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Once again, the film adaptation lived up to and possibly even exceeded my expectations as a lover of the books and I cannot wait to see the final installment brought to life. But I will have to wait. An entire year, in fact. Ugh.

For a Sunday afternoon catch-up with pals, I went with the closest thing to pyjamas - a matching silk top and shorts in delicious cheetah print. Hey, it WAS a Sunday after all.

Pants-seasonal


Top: The Original Breton Shirt Company  |  Trousers: Missoni  |  Bag: Louis Vuitton  |  Sneakers: Commes des Garcons PLAY X Converse  |  Sunglasses: Gucci  |  Bracelet: Eddie Borgo  |  Palm cuff: Petite Grand  |  On fingers: Face of Australia 'Boys 'N' Berries' and 'Platinum' matte top coat

This trans-seasonal weather has been so upsy-downsy (totally a term, just go with it) of late and as such, it is taking me even longer than usual to dress myself. "It's warm right now, but should I wear pants?" I ask myself, "or shorts and a long-sleeve top, as the weather looks like it might turn?" I continue. "But it might rain, and I don't want wet legs... So I'll wear my leather jogging pants and take a jacket just in case. But... none of my jackets work with my leather jogging pants...?" And on it goes. In conclusion, after spending nine weeks wearing almost nothing but dancewear, I no longer remember how to dress myself.

Last week, the long-awaited Alexander Wang X H&M collection launched in Australia to little fanfare. LOL JK, there were dance fighters and popcorn machines! It was awesome.
