11 ladies gathered at Spring Creek Station for a lighthearted look at fashion and how it influences our lives. Each of the ladies had carefully selected a conversational piece - something hidden in the wardrobe or an old favourite.

We had a mixture of outfits from the Miss Coombundgee Show Princess (1980) to an abaya (muslim outfit). Check out the gallery of photos below.

The day was enhanced by a late unexpected visit from Camilla Hall (mojosantos.com). Camilla is a designer and brought some of her unique collection. After our discussion, we had the pleasure of trying on her wares. Camilla's yoga mat's were particularly stunning.
 



 
What did we learn?

We should be drawn to fashion items, that feel comfortable, suit our body shape and complement our personality.
