Miss Fox Turns One!!

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to celebrate the 1st Birthday of Miss Fox Melbourne!!

It was everything a girl could dream of:

Cupcakes – check
Sausages – check
Lolly bar – check
Good music - check
Cocktails – check
Complimentary beauty services – check
Excellent company – check

You might have to clear your schedule, this is one picture heavy post.

I spent Thursday night fretting about what to wear and doing a fashion show for The Husband to choose from.

He nearly died when I walked out in my ASOS dress (wore it to Christmas party – here) and said there was no way I leaving the house in it. I put a singlet on underneath and he agreed it was perfect.

I had unpicked this necklace/embellishment thingo from a Forever 21 top a while back and it was the perfect addition to my outfit, as well as black stockings with a back seam.

I don’t normally wear so much black but it was raining and we did walk there. I couldn’t risk getting mud splatters on any other color!

All of the cocktails were the creation of Madame Brussels, who had their bartenders in little matching outfits of shorts, checkered shirts and canvas shoes. Impressive.

Who am I to turn down a cupcake?

This was my first time having Pimms!
I need to get out from under my rock more often and live large.

The necklace in action.

I’m in denial about my skin perhaps because I didn’t think it was that bad. Oh well.

Anyway, back to the necklace, by the end of the night it was missing more than its fair share of faux pearls and diamonds. Still awesome though, considering I only paid US$5 for the top.

Miss Fox had complimentary services going on, and they were quite the hit!!

Who doesn’t love a touch up after walking in the rain?!

The Hostess with The Mostest, Victoria Fox.

This was the first time that I have heard of Phat Brats and I feel like my life is now more complete.

I didn’t eat dinner, so if it wasn’t for these little bad boys I would have been on the floor.

The Husband had a lot more than I did, I’m too paranoid of getting food all over my face and in my teeth.

I swear, he never tells me if I have food in my teeth. Why oh why.
Hi, I’m Maryanne. Oh yes, I did have schnitzel for dinner, how can you tell? Oh – half a schnitzel in my teeth. Got it.

The Husband made sure to color coordinate with me, changing from his blue shirt to his black shirt when he got home after a hard day at work. 

Tulle pom poms.

Does it get any better? Does it? 

Sara, Erin and I look rather jolly, if I do say so myself.

Victoria concocting her own cocktails. 

I take enough bloody photos of myself that I should know my ‘good angles’ by now.
This, my friends, is not one of them.  

Long after the revelers had departed the party, and the festivities continued in a smaller scale, Sara-Jane was sweet enough to Minx my nails for me!

I had never had it done before, and I love it. 

I have China Glaze Fly on under the gold Minx. 

So awesome!

Doing what I do best, drinking on a near empty stomach. 

The party was so amazing and I cant believe how much they have accomplished in 1 year!! 

We carried on and went to the Carlton Club and then wrapped it up around 2:30am.

Of course a Hungry Jacks Bacon Deluxe Burger was in order for the trek home. 

Oh yeah, this is me demonstrating the best way to get rid of the hiccups.

When I drink, not only do I sneeze but I also get the hiccups. Amateur. 

Let me tell you, it's a good thing that I don't operate machinery at work. 


  1. Oops, totally read the post title as 'Miss Fox Turns Me On!!'

    You look hot! Looks like it was a gorgeous night :)

  2. Horray looks like u had a fun night!!! They sure look like they know how to throw a good party hehe

    I like that minx nail thingy too!

    1. It was fantastic!

      Yep, I knew you would like minx!

  3. You look amazing, and I LOVE the nails!

  4. I LOVE what you did with the top to make it a necklace.. .So creative!

    Looked good!

    Love the Minx...

    haha and so does that work to stop the hicups??

    1. Thanks!!

      Haha yes, but you have to swallow liquid whilst upside down. My liquid of choice was champagne.

  5. What a fabulous looking party! You looked gorgeous :-)

    I get the hiccups after drinking too, I've been known to fall asleep still hiccuping hehe x

    1. Thank you, it was such a good night!

      Hahahaha so annoying. They aren't small hiccups either, they are the type that shake my whole body!

  6. looks like a fab little night! :)

    is your hiccups cure the same as mine? i wonder.. i take a gulp of water, bend right down, stand up and swallow the water and my hiccups are gone. works every.single.time.!

    and i thought that necklace looked familiar... i was thinking to myself 'isnt that the collar of one of her tops?' shows how much i follow your blog!! haha

    and love the minx design, so pretty.

    1. I swallow the water whilst still upside down!!

      Haha you are very observant, I like it.

  7. Love it Mez. Looks like an amazing night.\Wish Sydney had a Miss Fox....anyone have any recommendations for me??

    Scames xx

    1. This is why Melbourne is better than Sydney ;)

  8. Fantastic party. I used to work in a beauty salon but we never had a party like that!!

  9. I like that dress as it is, but with the singlet under it think it looks really sophisticated. That plus the necklac = great outfit :-)

    Looks like you had an amazing time.

    All your talk about Miss Fox has almost convinced me to go and get some threading done. Almost.

    1. Thanks, I like it with the singlet too! Nice clean lines.

      Do it. I swear you wont regret it, and if you do, I take all responsibility.

  10. that's you trying to get rid of the hiccups right? bahahaha too cute! Looks like a fun and very well planned night xx

  11. Ok, you are seriously awesome. Love the nails, too!

  12. Hi, I've just noticed your left hand ring for the first time. Is this something you always wear? I feel like it would be quite strange being married and having the left hand bare (I'm orthodox too).

    1. Hi,

      I never leave the house without my left hand ring!!

      As I was not raised orthodox, it was a weird thing for me having my left hand bear and I didn't want people to look at it and think that I was available so my husband got me this when we picked out my wedding rings and I wear it every day! I adore it.

  13. looking fab as always!! wow the food at miss fox looks so yummy!

  14. Love your outfit and the minx nails! And wow, I'd always thought Miss Fox was a much older business then that, they sure throw an awesome party!

  15. That looks like such an amazing party, especially those drinks - adorable! I went to Madame Brussels once when I was on holidays, it's such a cute place. Ahh I look forward to one day being able to drink pretty cocktails again.

    1. I've only been to Madam Brussels once, I think I should go back!

      At least you have a great excuse to not be drinking ;)

  16. Thanks for coming to celebrate and the awesome party review!! I don't remember making those cocktails... but I do hope they were nice!! You looked super-lovely and we love and appreciate your support, thank you!! xx

  17. OMG that was an amazing party!! :) loe love the pics and cocktails tons of ideas for my best party. Of course you looked amazing as usual!!!!

  18. This is the best post you have ever done.

    Loving it sick x

  19. i love this mezzywezzy
    hahaha hiccups are terrible but you make them look like i might enjoy them. i need to remember this trick for next time.

  20. The food esp cupcakes looked amazing.

  21. Have you tried Lord of the Fries hotdogs? They are even better than Phat Brat's in my humble opinion, and I'm not even a vegetarian!
