A little while ago my beautiful cousin from Canberra (you would have seen her in her Wedding post here) came down to Melbourne so I could take her shopping. It was such a fun day! We started on High St Armadale at our boutique, then we went to a few of our favourite shops: Harlem, Hokey Curator, ate macaroons at La Tropezienne and cupcakes at the Cupcake Central cafe. Ah how we indulged…
Whilst Evane was trying on garments I got a few sneak pics, it was my first time wearing this amazing vintage Hiroko Koshino skirt. My mother-in-law gave it to me, along with the cape . This Japanese designer is STILL around and creating amazing pieces. I would love to visit her stores in Japan or Taiwan, where fashion is beautifully married with art. Ah…one day :)
Vintage shirt, belt, bracelet and earrings, Sportsgirl shoes, YSL ring and Hiroko Koshino skirt, in our change room.
I love being a personal stylist – this is an outfit I chose for Evane and it is her favourite outfit – Karla Spetic silk top, Amy Kaehne silk shorts (which I also have and featured in this post) and purple patent Repetto Klein pumps. Great legs!
After our shopping expedition, we headed to the Japanese Summer Festival, stay tuned for the next post :)
For me, there is not such thing as ‘Shop Til You Drop’, my shopping stamina has never let me down, that’s why I love shopping and love taking friends shopping! As long as I can shop, I forget about hunger, anxieties…worries.. :) A colleague recently compared me to a Duracell Bunny because of my unceasing vitality. So if you ever need a shopping buddy, give me a shout!
