Oh gosh, where do I begin? How do I begin to tell you how wonderful it is to have met can't-describe-beyond-words Sarah and vibrant, vivacious Helga??? I adore them!
Sarah is my wicked wit blogidol and Helga is just a fiery ball of kooky fun!
We started off our night at the opulent Absinthe Salon and ended it at Sydney's craziest karaoke bar, with some jazz accompanied sushi in the middle... eclectic, crazy, fabulously glamourous and fun... so, just perfect* for us!
*Sarah my love... hope that doesn't come across as "...oh silly me, it's caught in my long lovely eyelashes..."!!!!!!!!!!!!!! J
I was actually rather nervous! So much so I had a wardrobe crisis!
I rarely have wardrobe crises! That link was the last time I had a wardobe crisis!
Could not find anything to wear, although I had pre planned a few outfit choices but didn't feel like wearing any of them on the day.
So I 'settled' for this... and... as you will see after the jump... it was totally meant to be...
MORE pics after the jump!!
LOOK at how coordinated we are!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not intentional!
Sarah is wearing a red vintage treasure that she just bought the day before on their mega op-shopping trip and I think Helga too is wearing a sparkly number she found the day before, not too sure BUT...we absolutely complemented and complimented each other!
I'm wearing a blood orange vintage gown that belonged to my mum-in-law. It looks red in pics.
There's a better pic on Sarah's post. Alas, the person who took this photo had his finger obscuring the flash so I've ended up with this shot...which is cool but you can't see what we're wearing. Bummer.
Also, I didn't take my DSLR, used my point&shoot so the photo quality is not as good.
Sarah is Canberra based and Helga, although from Australia, is a Christchurch-er (and yes she was there when the earthquake happened). I haven't met many bloggers, not even the ones who live in Sydney!
I've only met Jemina but she's from Singapore and currently taking a break from blogging.
...anyway, I'm sure I'll meet others... there are many international bloggers I would love to meet and have to meet but it doesn't worry me if I never meet the young Australian too cool for their igloo cloned hipsters. Yawn.
These are my kind of women. Eccentric, smart, glamourous, witty, pithy, droll and heeeeeelarious, gorgeous, truly individual, not afraid to be fearless and just downright dripping with fabulosity.
KEEP CHECKING!!! THERE ARE MORE PICS! I JUST WANT TO GET THIS POST UP!! I took 368 pics... some filtering (and censoring!) is required...
Please note: this post is backdated. We're not Cinderellas. We were not home before midnight.
This woman can REALLY sing!
This woman can really rock!
These women are out of this world!!
