So I’m hosting a little soiree to toast the impending arrival of Melbourne’s summer, alongside DrinkMelbourne. Invited are just a few of my friends and people I admire (hopefully new friends) in fashion, food, arts and events and we will dress in our most luxurious resort finery. It’s a society party sans the socialites and d-grade celebs; just Melbourne’s new order of the most intelligent, kind and creative contributors. And hopefully you!
With the pending approval of the city’s weather, the party is to be held upon the charming, nautical open-air rooftop of St Kilda bar Captain Baxter. We will sip on Captain Baxter’s specially-designed menu of Jameson Whiskey-infused cocktails, Havana Club rum-spiked mojitos and prosecco by French-inspired local winery Gentle Annie while nibbling seasonal canapés as the sun sinks below the ocean. And we will be surrounded by the lilting sounds of Gena Rose Bruce (Road to Discovery Best Performer winner) and the scent of Voyager‘s gorgeous Melbourne-influenced candles (and the seaside).
It’s an invitation only event (on the evening of Thursday 21 November) but I do have space for one gorgeous StyleMelbourne reader and their favoured guest to attend. All you have to do to enter to win is;
2. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and Instagram name (so I can follow you back).
3. Wait to see if you’ve won this gorgeous prize. Winner will be notified on November 19.
