Last night was my first attendance at a Little Black Dress Group dinner. This group, led by Janine Garner, is designed to foster networks and drive collaborative change among results driven business women and entrepreneurs.
Held at Altitude Dining Room, on the 36th floor of the Shangri-La hotel, we felt like we were floating about the city of Sydney, with spectacular views looking out over the harbour.
The views within the room were ultimately much more fascinating though. Women from a variety of sectors and industries all introduced themselves and voiced the challenges they face, either at a personal or business level. The discussion topics were moderated by Janine and also Sara Lucas (thank you again for the invitation Sara!), of EnrichMe, and focused on women’s challenges within the workplace, how more and more women are becoming entrepreneurs, women and their relationship with money. It was a great evening – and more importantly – an honest evening. Frustrations were vented, there was a lot of laughter and even a few tears.
But of course, there was jewellery to accompany the black dresses which were de rigueur. Janine was wearing this Tiffany favourite, the Open Heart necklace:
Other than silver, a popular choice was pearls to go with the little black dresses.
What’s your favourite jewellery to go with your LBD?
