Guess what I had forgotten to tell you all about? The Australian Cosmopolitan Fun Fearless Female of the Year Awards 2009 last week. SASSYBELLA.com was nominated in the blogger category. Thanks to everyone who voted for us to push us through to the final stages amongst some very tough competition! The flashy awards night took place last Tuesday at the Art Gallery of Sydney and promised to be quite an affair…
So when it came to choosing a plus who for such a glitzy affair, who else would do a better job than Matt of Imelda? So I slipped on my recessionista friendly outfit: dress by Cooper st (pictured below – AUD$159.95 RRP), ATAT’s Panther Necklace and Ring set ($AUD$70 RRP) and my own beige cropped blazer, and off we went.
We were greeted by a sexy topless model and ran into Girl With a Satchel‘s Erica Bartle who had made the drive down to Sydney from Queensland for the night. After a quick survey of the room it was suddenly time to take our seats as the show began. It was only when we sat down and we noticed what a star studded crowd had filled the room with the likes of Kate Richie, Sarah Murdoch, Pippa Black, Esther Anderson, Ruby Rose, Jessica Mauboy, Sarah-Jane Clarke of Sass & Bide and Becky Cooper and Bridget Yorston of Bec & Bridge in attendance.
It was a fun affair and we commiserated with our fellow table-mates Emma Isaacs from Business Chicks and Danni Watts from The Butterfly Foundation when we all didn’t take the prize in our respective categories, though we’d made it so far and it was so great to be nominated in the first place, we were all winners that night! Check out who won what over at Cosmopolitan’s website.
A big thank you to Cosmopolitan and Biore for putting on such a great event and of course the ‘maids’ at Tailor Maid Communications for loaning me the fabulous colour block dress by Cooper St, it’s so nice I might have to pop in store and pick it up myself.
