The Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation put on their annual Silver Party. A charity close to my heart I asked some of the gorgeous ladies in attendance what they used to wear as kids.

Annie Conley: DJ, wears Dolce & Gabbana dress and Pucci bag
Stephanie Conley: Designer, wears Dolce & Gabbana dress and bag

The Conley sisters were decked out in their Dolce & Gabbana, yet they remember their childhood outfits to be some what of a different calibre. In their younger years the Conley sisters rocked every coloured jelly sandal, paired with Joe Cool Snoopy tees and bubble skirts.

Emma Lung: Actress, wears Scanlan and Theodore dress
Emma remembers owning a black velvet floor length skirt as a little girl. For years she refused to wear anything else until, eventually, the skirts hem crept all the way up to her knees with time and she had no choice but to give it up.

Alyssa McCelland: Actress, wears Fleur Wood dress
Alyssa was an 80’s child sporting fluoro shorts over leggings with “lots and lots of hot pink.”

Katherine Fitzgerald: Designer for Industrie, wears Acne dress

As a child, Katherine remembers going with her mother to fabric stores to choose the print that would then make up her season’s wardrobe. Within days, Katherine’s mother would whip up a pair of biker pants paired with a matching top. “Terrible!” she exclaims.
