October Inspiration

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different”
– Coco Chanel

My October Inspiration…

I cannot believe it is already October! Is it just me or has this year truly flown by? October has been filled with delightful events and has been a true celebration of family and friends – with several birthdays to celebrate and also a truly wonderful mini-break to Melbourne. I am also so excited for the November launch of ‘Red / Rot / Rouge’ which I will be posting more about shortly.

You may have also noticed the ‘refreshed’ look of Uptown Twirl and the banner mentioning ‘Become An Uptown Twirl Contributor’. I hope you like the new look as much as I do and the use of my illustrations accompanying articles. And if you are interested in becoming an Uptown Twirl Contributor, watch this space… I will be writing about this next week. But in the meantime…

Just a few of the things inspiring me this month…

The exquisitely embellished Sass & Bide Spring / Summer 2013 collection; beautiful black and white photography; fanciful feathers; all things pretty, pink and delicate; one of my great icons Coco Chanel; beautifully polished furnishings; enchanting imagery; Chanel’s iconic staircase and apartment decor; these divine Chanel fabrics – the heavenly tweeds and the softest of chiffon delicately embroidered with little sparkles…

What is inspiring you this month?

Happy Weekend! xx

From The Editor

Dear Lovely Readers,

Oh how I have missed you! It has been such a big week and I am delighted to be back and writing to you all now.

You may have seen that last week Uptown Twirl was experiencing some ‘technical difficulties.’ I am so pleased that these issues have now been resolved and that regular Uptown Twirl Articles will be back from tomorrow!

My other delightful news is that I spent the last four days on a mini-break in Melbourne {my favourite city in Australia}! I adore this fashionable city with it’s gorgeous food, beautiful architecture and vibrant atmosphere and I highly recommend it as a must visit! These were just a couple of photos I captured on Instagram while I was away.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Love Cara xx

What I Wore…

The day after my Birthday Shopping Spree!

I have had a truly wonderful week! Last week I turned 26 and I had a positively brilliant birthday! It also marked the ‘half way’ point of my pregnancy.

For my birthday I was truly spoiled. I received many beautiful gifts (many of which I wore today!) and also received quite a few David Jones Gift Vouchers – which I very much enjoyed spending on my Shopping Spree Sunday.

Today I wore my new blue and white striped Seafolly dress; Mimco yellow ballet flats; Mimco long white necklace; and Lancome L’Absolu Rouge lipstick in shade 134.

As many of you may already know…. I love a beautiful stripe. So when I saw this Seafolly dress yesterday it was love at first sight. Classic, elegant and with a chic minimalism –stripes are one of my wardrobe must-haves. The loose ‘beachy’ silhouette of this dress is perfect for my growing bubby bump and it is also the perfect length (at 5’4″ most maxi dresses are too long for me)…

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! xx
