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…

Post Holiday Cheer

So we all know what the first week of January means… SALE TIME!! We won’t say it’s our favourite time of year – we couldn’t possibly be that shallow – but there is something about the joy of uncovering a bargain. Anyway… these are a couple of our finds. If you follow us on Instagram, you will have seen that…

Easy Like Sunday Afternoon

These pics were taken a couple weeks ago before B jetted off to Thailand. We spent a lazy Sunday afternoon having a few beverages to celebrate a close friend’s birthday. B was crazy excited to steal A’s new Sass and Bide skirt and wear in her mules bought on sale while in New York. While A stole B’s denim jacket. Can you…

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…

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…
