There are many advantages of being a boutique owner: I get to do the buying, every 6 months; I get to wear clothes designed by people I believe in, I get to tell everyone who visits about the designers’ inspirations and I get to eat cupcakes.
I often get asked if I miss being a vet…and the answer is actually I am still a vet- 1.5 days a week! So I still get to play with cute puppies and kittens, perform their desexing operations and give advice to pet owners. I just don’t get scratched as often as I used to.
Everyone knows about the clothing labels we stock now. As well as being the largest stockist of Repetto shoes in Melbourne, we are also proud to bring you Omero stockings. This Italian hosiery label makes the most decorative tights and they are durable. Check these green ones out! I really didn’t expect them to be so wearable…
Teaming up my Spijkers en Spijkers silk big star top with a vintage leather skirt, vintage necklaces, Zara jacket, a ‘Hello’ brooch I got from Spitalfield Market in London and Midas heels. The mannequin next to me has Gail Sorronda’s Innocence dress on. It has a sweet heart neckline, so demure, so Valentino. The perfect LBD.
Here I am with Theodore and the 3 Sisters. Theodore looks like he’s saying ‘Hello’.
The best thing about both of my jobs is that I can bring my son Theodore to work everyday.
So here it is. Now you know my secret identity. I’m sure that many of us with a nerdy background actually have bucket loads of creativity hibernating inside of us, waiting for the right opportunity to burst forth and make a statement. So guys, spill!
