Jewels to go with little black dresses

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:

And someone else was wearing another Tiffany classic, the silver bead necklace (with matching bracelet):

Other than silver, a popular choice was pearls to go with the little black dresses.

  1. Well, my bling of the evening was a favourite beaded bracelet, purchased a number of years ago for my wedding. M husband clipped it on for me and whenever he does so I’m right back on Laguna Bay in Noosa where we married. It has enormous sentimental value for me. Offset with a couple of indigo beads with Swarovski crystals for my ears it was costume glam all round! x

  2. I usually wear my modest gold Iranian necklace which is a depiction of a guard of the Emperor Cyrus (as appears engraved on the walls of the “Apadana” or Hommage Hall at Perspolis in modern-day Iran). I like it because it is a secular political symbol pre-dating Islam. He also looks like a traveller, seeker, guide and (some have suggested) saint! It is also my legal firm’s logo.
