Party round my neck Part 3

Assalomu Alaykum! (That’s hello! in Uzbek) The gorgeous girls from Melange Boutique have a constant stream of lovely jewels, accessories and clothes…here I’m wearing their lovely “Torah” medallion necklace along with a clutch from Mediterranean Living – all the way from Uzbekisistan, hence the opening line….aren’t we clever Google Translate!

Party ’round my neck, Part 2


Dannijo Medine bib necklace from Alexis Dawn, Turkish Suzani Clutch from Mediterranean Living.

Alexis Dawn never ceases to amaze me, the minute you walk in you’ll be hit by a burst of fresh colours and along with their label Alexis Dawn also stocks Rebecca Minkoff, J Brand and of course Dannijo accessories. Here I am wearing the Medine bib necklace in red, a worthy investment piece if you ask me!

PS: The Dawnies are having their 2nd Annual Sale this Saturday with all of their signature stock at $100 a pop and 50% all other items….helloo Rebecca Minkoff bags, Mama’s coming home!

Be sure to say hello to the gorgeous girls and pick up a great piece (or five!)

Party ’round my neck, Part 1.

There’s nothing better than updating your outfit with a few accessories, as you may have gathered from my previous posts, I happen to be having a ‘rainbows and unicorns’ love affair with my suburb.  Gone are the days of standing in an overcrowded Westfield trying to get to your favourite store via screaming 3 year old chucking a tanty in the food court and the snooty high schoolers making out in front of Big W.  I feel extremely blessed to be within seconds of James Street and have sternly advised my husband that he just has to keep earning more money in order to avoid exile to the outskirts of the city once I’m up the duff. Please Lord, let me never leave this sanctuary of great coffee and gorgeous shops! Speaking of which, all the accessories featured in this fashion series are all James Street Precinct-ers, I guarantee that if you do visit – you will be hooked to their inspiring goodies.

In this series I have styled a simple Bassike tee, Arizona pleat skirt from General Pants and last season’s RMK Dakota thigh highs with the lovely wares of Alexis Dawn, Melange Boutique and Mediterranean Living.  Be sure to check each of these stores out!

How bazaar.

It pays to stroll your local ‘hood, in fact…on a beautiful Autumn day I did just that.  ‘Twas on this stroll that I walked past a lil boutique in Newstead, filled with gorgeous homewares, lamps, furniture and other lovely things from distant and exotic lands. A gorgeous fresh-faced Alison greeted me as soon as I walked in to the shop (cue flamenco guitar music) and I was instantly drawn to her passion for all things beautiful and all things Mediterranean.  Most of Alison’s wares come from Turkey and Spain, she is extremely knowledgeable in the techniques used in the dying, stitching and embroidery process.  So why not pop in and have a chat?

These are just some of the lovely things I came across (and I still find myself daydreaming about that incredible clutch!)

Check out Mediterranean Living, Shop 2 29 Chester Street, Newstead or visit them on good ole FB here

Fiesta fever!

I recently popped into Camilla’s new Brisbane boutique, which is oh so too conveniently located walking distance from home and I was completely MESMERIZED by the decor and the new AW12 collection.

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of meeting the wonderful Camilla at Marie Claire’s James St Up Late, she was the most humble/energetic/passionate and hard working woman I have ever met. Since when do you see a big shot designer working the till like pro? I was IM-PRESSED!!! As I was with the changeroom decor…wait…did I mention the changeroom decor? Haha.

Camilla’s dreamy new collection can be salivated over here – view at your own risk!!!
