Spring Fling

It’s actually the name of The Wheeler Centre’s storytelling festival that starts this coming Wednesday and may be a safer bet than outdoor activity this week. I always love seeing the Spring Carnival Racing fashion as much as I feel conflicted about horse racing itself. I do love Zimmermann’s High Tide navy and white spot halter neck dress (below) had I been attending Derby Day and it was great to see Elsa Pataky in Christian Dior.

I love Dior’s designs as much as I love Chanel – there is something about the French designer which is very timeless and classic. I took my mum to see Mrs Harris Goes to Paris last night at Cinema Nova in Carlton (based on the books by Paul Gallico below) and if you are a fan of Christian Dior’s New Look as well as Paris – it was quite delightful if not a little predictable plot-wise. Mr Rosanna gave me a framed Dior print for my birthday this year (further below) which is taking pride of place in our bedroom and an ode to all things Gallic.

It was busy down the locals’ end of Carlton last night and I now spend quite a bit of time in the suburb with work. My team has monthly lunches with all six of us having to find venues on a rotating basis. I booked Japanese restaurant Torissong last week and our meals served on a tray (further below) were delicious! I’ve spied Panda Hot Pot Carlton on the corner of Cardigan and Victoria Streets so that’s next on my list.

If you’re in Carlton, you can book tours for the Royal Exhibition Building domed rooftop – I am a fan of domes and Mr R and I got married under the dome at 333 Collins Street in the city many years ago now. Given the inclement weather, it may be safer to see Rone’s exhibition under cover at the Flinders Street station ballroom.

I’ve been wandering the streets of Ivanhoe today with Mr R taking time to stop and smell the roses including this beautiful one below in a neighbouring street. It’s great to see many haunted houses all decorated for Halloween and may it be a spooktacular occasion tonight. Enjoy tomorrow and stay dry!
