Couture by Grandma

Grandma has a new sewing machine. She loves it. This is exciting beyond words as I'm fairly confident I am going to be the primary beneficiary of her crush on her fancy new machine!

I've been a helpful little granddaughter too and ordered some pretty summer material and sent it up to her - what Grandma doesn't like presents from her granddaughter?! Particularly such thoughtful ones...

Pink uggies

So I know I said in an earlier post that pink boots weren't practical and I am all about practical, but I think we all know that is not really true... on both counts as it happens.

I couldn't resist these Alex & Charli boots when I saw them. I can't actually recall where I saw them, but I remember seeing them and just having to have them - you know how it is? They've turned out to be remarkably practical this winter - warm and stylish. What more could a girl want?

Trifle Shoppe

I've made a heavenly new discovery just in time for Spring - Trifle Shoppe! Rather than having to trawl through a myriad of overseas stores to find designers and brands (only to then be devastated by the exorbitant cost of shipping to Australia!), they are all here on this gorgeously presented shopfront. It's not so much a shop, as a portal to shopping heaven!
Just in time for the arrival of Spring (11 days and counting!), I've stocked up on some Right Bank Babies goodies and bought some gorgeous MiniLala hairclips. Right Bank Babies is a brand I have fallen head over heels in love with, but getting my hands on new pieces has proved to be a challenge... until now! As soon as my parcel arrived I promise to introduce you!

Wonders will never cease

It's been a little while since I have last posted and I can only attribute that to my complete lack of enthusiasm for winter fashion... yes I know it was only a few months ago I was loudly extolling its virtues, however, when shops are filling up with Spring goodies, a jacket and boots no longer hold quite the appeal they did at the end of a long summer...
One item I have rarely been without on a cold winter's night has been a tried and true Bonds Wondersuit. Hardly the height of fashion I know, but sensing parental willingness to pay twice the price for anything provided it is labelled "organic", Bonds has come out with a new range of (organic) Wondersuits in bright, cheerful colours that are funky enough to pass muster. They are certainly an improvement on the insipid range of colours their usual Wondersuits come in and I think the lack of a collar is a huge improvement... not surprising they are harder to come across than hen's teeth!
