The other night we went out for dumplings then to see the Sirens Big Band (the all female and totally awesome Sydney-based band). We went to Bamboo Dumpling Bar and ate a huge array of delicious dumplings, including chocolate dessert dumplings (which is that blurry brown thing at the end of my chopsticks!). It is a tiny little place, with lovely decor. Including our dining companion - Mr Iguana - who was seated right next to our table! (And conveniently, matched my ensemble)
I wore my new green velvet pencil-dress. It has a super awesome bolero-type-over-thingy, but it was too cold to wear without more layers. I really really love velvet, but tell me folks - how do you avoid the awkward scrunchy front I am sporting in the photo below? I was at the archives sitting down all day, then sitting at dinner, so by the time we took these photos it was seriously scrunchy. Are these dresses made only for standing?
Birdcages, bamboo and some inspirational dumpling quotes.
Some of the lovely Sirens ladies.
And the over-layers. It's getting cold!!!
Apologies for the poor picture quality. My little compact does pretty well, but does find low light difficult. I need a DSLR, right? (right!?)
