OOTD: Sneaky Sunday bevies

On Sunday afternoon we met up with some mates at The Powerhouse for some afternoon bevies and to check out the new art exhibition, Oculi: Terra Australis Incognita. The Powerhouse is literally Brisbane's old power station, now converted to a live arts venue with loads of music, comedy, theatre and art events- a lot of them free! And it's a fabulous way to chill out and watch the world go by over the Brisbane River.


The exhibition was really interesting and we even managed to catch a little of the free Sunday night stand up comedy before heading off. I love the contrasting rawness of the Powerhouse against the structure and beauty of the artwork.

Anna rocking her fashion faux pas made fashionable- the elbow patches! It kind of reminds me of one of my lecturers at uni lol ;)

 Dress: City Chic, Earrings: Diva



I wore my City Chic halter-neck maxi. I actually tuck the halter-neck straps over my bust and then under my arms to tie at the back- instant strapless maxi! This is also the first time I've worn my rad Diva purple earrings- and they matched perfectly!

  12. Love the walls, as you say the "rawness" is great, original.
    I must say: I don't know how your dress looks as a halter but as strapless is ABSOLUTELY beautiful, not only the colors are to die for but the style looks great on you.

  17. Btw,your earrings are extremely matching the delicate dress.These small decorations in dreamlike color of purple make detailed explanations for your mysterious beauty,and make the best for this dress.I find the purple always difficult to match but you've done the jobs nicely..Bravo!It would be really nice if you take your spare time to check out my blog and follow back if you like it.. :D
