My old friend Natalie has had a bit of a tough year. Diagnosed with breast cancer (of which she is now in the all clear YAY!) Nat was in need of a bit of a pick me up, so when I was in town for fashion week we decided to meet up for a bit of a girly shop and lunch. I've been so impressed with her positive attitude to life, as she never complained once during her treatments, and there I was making a big fuss because I dislocated my knee and was on crutches. This girl is an inspiration and totally deserved a glam-over.

Being true Melbourneites we gravitated towards the racks of black clothes.

Of which thankfully there are plenty right now, thanks City Chic.

Nat in the change room with all her options. The idea was to find the perfect party dress now she is in recovery, and also a new outfit to rock to work. And find them we did!

First up was the party dress:

As soon as we saw this dress on the mannequin in the window we knew this was the one. The black lace shoulder detailing gives the dress a fashion forward edge and the belted waist looks fantastic on.

Yep, Nat was very happy with this find. Paired with a fab handbag and a pair of wedges this dress will have you dancing all night.

Next up was the work look:

Nat was drawn to the Velvet black blazer on the racks as she had been wanting something like it for a long time, and boy does it look fab on her. The pencil skirt with its polka dot finish brings a fun element to typically boring office wear. We belted the skirt and added lots of bling to make the look feel fresh and modern and not too stuffy office-y. Nat wants to have fun with her wardrobe and this look is perfect for her new take on life.

Nat looks like a confident business women with a creative edge, yay success!

Had to throw in this shot too because she looks so beautiful. Love the look Nat x
