Rarely do you meet people who are as passionate or knowledgeable when it comes to vintage fashion. 

During the week, I was kindly invited by Westfield Southland to visit one of their newest retail additions - a vintage pop up store, created by the lovely Nicole Jenkins of Circa Vintage.

Nicole, very well versed in the history of fashion, as well as costume design, showed me through a selection of her carefully curated vintage pieces, reminding me again of why I love vintage shopping so much.

Vintage Gaultier, Comme des Garcons, and a suspected Christian Dior blazer all make an appearance in Nicole's collection - a fashion lovers treat through the decades.

It was my first time to Westfield Southland in Melbourne, and I can say that I was truly impressed at how the traditional retail experience for shoppers has been enhanced with creative and innovative additions like the Circa Vintage pop up.

It was a lovely afternoon of shopping, which combined new fashion trends and fast fashion, with the glamour and elegance of designer vintage pieces of yesteryear.

The Circa Vintage pop up will be up and running until the end of the month, so If you have the chance, go along, have a chat with Nicole and admire some beautiful vintage pieces.



Dear friends,

Yesterday, I was invited by Melbourne Central to check out their newest retail space, known as 'The Corner' - dedicated to urban fashion.

One of my favourite stores in this  precinct, is Co Op Surfection. Not only does the store have a great range of my usual brand go-tos: StyleStalker, Cassette Society, One Teaspoon and Sabre, but every time I visit, I uncover a new Aussie label, like The Astral Plane (pictured), who have some of the best pastel tees and shirts going around.

Whilst I was in-store, I took the opportunity to play dress-ups and share with you two of my favourite trends of the moment: mixing prints and pastels. How outrageous and fabulous are these yellow print jeans!

Next time you're in town, be sure to check out Melbourne Central and 'The Corner' - assignment or no assignment, hands down my favourite shopping 'mall' experience in Melbourne.

P.S. Some of you have asked where my iphone case is from - it is UK brand Iconemesis, who collaborate with some of the best artists to create incredible case designs - enjoy!
