An italian affair

| 29 June , 2009 | 1 Reply

My very fashionable and stylish friend Donny Galella celebrated his 30th birthday last week in true Italian style. Themed La Dolce Vita I trotted off to Kit & Kaboodle Supper Club in Sydney’s King Cross with my fun and girlie friend Amanda Cole and we had such a blast.

We tripped up the stairs zipping in front of Les Hill from Underbelly exiting a Maseratti Quatroporto to the heavenly scent of Joonique Candles burning among zillions of rose petals of Columbian Roses scattered throughout, talk about a big fat italian wedding.

Kit & Kaboodle describe their bar as uber-cool, Shanghai Nights meets Studio 54 – vintage glamour it was, I was obsessed with their light fittings over the bar.


Downing moorish Campari Cocktails searching for the birthday boy among the stylish guests we bumped into Jantina & Koula, the girls who created Joonique Candles, these candles are hot on the heels of my favourite candles Glasshouse.

Amanda enjoyed a mild flirtation under the disco balls with Daniel Mifsud at the Grand Piano while we paid tribute to Michael Jackson on the dancefloor.

We caught up with my glamboyant friends Kelly & Gia … I hadn’t seen Kell for ages so it was great to catch up with them both.

We chatted with Sam Brett and Laura Dundovic (and Brock) beside the bar.

We had a laugh with Maria Venuti as she entertained us with her usual tales of fun.

No birthday is a birthday without a birthday cake.

And Jessica Alba graced the bar as we downed more Campari’s and heaven sent Gelatissimo for dessert!

And the most stylish award goes to Liv Tassanyi, it was like she stepped straight out of the 1920’s.  I couldn’t stop staring at her make-up application, it was amazing!  I’m in total awe of her style.

And then far too quickly it was time to click our heels and leave the magical evening and head on home.  We snuck out trying not to draw attention to the Joonique candles in our hands, the doorman nearly didn’t let us out but we fluttered our eyelashes and then we were gone.

Happy Birthday Donny.
