Buried Treasure

Don’t you love it when you purchase heels and come home excited, neatly putting them in your perfectly organised wardrobe *cough cough* and forget that you even purchased them in the first place only to discover them 2 years later! I can’t believe it has taken me this long to wear these shoes, or for that matter, remember that I even…

Teneriffe Festival

Sorry that this post is a little bit delayed. There’s been a lot going on in our lives and the blog seems to have paid the price! A few weekends ago, we ventured to the annual Teneriffe Festival. For those of you not from Brisbane, Teneriffe is a Brisbane riverside suburb, home to many loft conversions in the warehouses left…

First Past the Post

It seems time has slipped away from us these last few days. It might just be us, but the cold weather seems to make everything move in slow-motion. This outfit is from a little while back. It was actually taken the day after we arrived back from NY. I always love going to the races! All the pretty horses thundering…

A Spot of Culture

While B was soaking up some sun at Stradbroke Island during last week’s long weekend, A made her way to the Brisbane Powerhouse for some eats and drinks and to have a look at World Press Photo ’14, an exhibition showcasing award-winning photojournalists from around the globe. A very nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. A wears Leather Tank Marc Jacobs…

Texas Tuxedo

We bought this vintage denim jacket from the excellent Brooklyn Flea market when we were in New York (a must-see if visiting). An awkward denim-on-denim situation arose when A tried it on with her J brand jeans. The stall holder’s response to the situation was classic, ‘That’s what I call the Texas Tuxedo’. Hilarious! In honour of the World’s most versatile fabric,…

High Line Fever

After one of our many shopping expeditions we decided to embrace some of the City’s non-retail related beauty, namely; the High Line. We’ve posted about High Line before, one of our fave Bond no.9 perfumes is named after it. For those who don’t know, it’s a remarkable rejuvenation of a defunct and derelict elevated railway into a magical public park. Our…

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…

All That Glitters

Seems apt in this Winter Olympics month to be rocking some precious metals. B’s gone for gold with a nod to silver with the addition of a mirrored clutch. We’re loving how the slightly ski-esque booties ground the outfit and give it an edgier look. Skirt and crop: Nasty Gal Booties: Steven by Steve Madden Bangle: Marc Jacobs Clutch: Zara…

Byron Bliss

It’s hard to believe it was only a week ago that I was enjoying a well earned break with friends in Byron Bay! If you asked A, she’d say it’s been much longer, purely because of my constant pining for it. I can’t help that Byron is such a spectacular getaway escape! Needless to say, both of our weeks have…

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…
