Soot shorts

I think it is safe to say that these silk shorts have literally been worn to death. Once a stark white, they have mellowed to cream… haha, yet I still find myself feeling good whenever I pull them on. They have been one of my better purchases and while they weren’t kind to my bank account at the time, I have DEFINITELY…

Laced Up

I have a bit of a thing for lace – not the icky cheap nylon kind but the cottony goodness of the kind created by ladies from generations ago. This divine dress from Spell and the Gypsy Collective is made from just such lace. I came across it a while back, fell in love and as it was around Christmas, thought…

Walking the Bridge

We definitely had some good bouts of weather while we were in New York. Makes it hard to believe it was such a bad winter, although we know it was… Enough people told us! This day provided the perfect opportunity for us to walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. We walked Manhattan to Brooklyn, took a million snaps and ended up in a…

The Ides, Wythe Hotel

Weekend in the ‘Burg

So much Williamsburg, so little time. From Smorgasburg, an amazing food market on Saturday to the Brooklyn Flea on Sunday. From the rooftop bar at the Wythe Hotel to the Brooklyn Brewery tour. Exploring the stores along Bedford Avenue – the gorgeous Catbird and Norbu ended up with a chunk of our cash. Oh, and cheese lovers, get ye to…

Grey Skies

We attempted the Paddington markets on our Saturday in Sydney a few weeks back, but gale force winds and intermittent pouring rain made market shopping a death wish. Despite this, die-hard shoppers that we are, we still managed some purchases ; ) Retreating to the relative safety of the gorgeous shops along Oxford St helped keep us dry, however not so safe…

Finders Keepers

As you follow us you might realise that we hang on to great basics. They may sit in the ‘archives’ (thanks, Rachael Zoe) for 5 years or even longer. We know that eventually, styles circle around and when they do, voilà! We avoid breaking the bank and are bang on trend! The trick is predicting what to keep and sometimes…

Short and Sweet

Hooray for shorts! We wear them quite differently – no Daisy Dukes for A for obvious reasons… or for B come to think of it, for different, yet equally obvious reasons. Paired with the right top and accessories, we think shorts transcend any age barrier and are nigh on the perfect piece of clothing for our long, hot summers.  B…

HiHo

We love the relaxed atmosphere of dining out at the Gold Coast. The food is great and the dress is… whatever you want, really! Wearing Sass and Bide top, Jack and Jac skirt, K Jaques sandals, Mania Mania necklace, HLSK ring and a tiny bit too much sun! LOVE A X

Mooooooo

Continuing on from our last post at Broadbeach, we dined that night at Moo Moo. Our steak was delicious and you can probably tell with our enthusiastic and overly happy snaps that we had one too many wines. A wears Shakuhachi dress and K. Jacques sandals. B wears Christopher Esber top, Bec and Bridge skirt, Stolen Girlfriends Club sandals and…

Sweet Summer

With summer just around the corner, and B’s recent knee reconstruction preventing us from shooting new outfits, we decided to play around with two amazing new purchases. We bought these We Are Handsome one pieces a few days ago. After much um-ing and ah-ing, we succumbed and decided rather than choose, just buy both! Fortunate for us they were both…
