Although the month of July was a quiet month for me on the fashion scene.... I did get to film my latest short film for Tropfest titled: Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend. The film was shot over three days - and is based on the true story of Kay Kent, a UK Marilyn Monroe impersonator who lived her life in the exact manner of her idol to the final minutes of her death! The film is in post-production and you can read more about it here.
I also took some time away with my family to visit the small town of Bunbury... was definitely a relaxing getaway with the beach, wine & hotel chill time.
Also announced this month - was the final runway showcases for the 2015 Telstra Perth Fashion Festival! I am going to three shows (Would absolutely love to see them all.... but as usual, time is not always on my side) - you can see more information on shows & tickets here.
A few pics from my Bunbury Getaway
I also brought these cute heels from KMart ($9.00!!!) in anticipation of learning how to walk in them... (Yes its part of my New Years Resolution and yes I am still yet to start learning!)
Although we had an amazing makeup artist working on my feature to recreate Marilyn's look (Simone from Team Mermaid Makeup, I love Marilyn Monroe's makeup so much - I thought I would add a little inspiration below:
So just wanted to do a quick update with what has been happening in July! Next month will be hosting the Cast/Crew & Viewing Party for Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend... so will definitely be sharing some pics... and of course, September will be the month for the Perth Fashion Festival!

I've done a fair bit of research with learning to walk in heel videos and tutorials... I think so far this one is one of the best!
