Zara Store Opening Perth

You can practically hear the excitement buzzing around Perth. 
The epic fashion retailer, Zarahas finally hit our side of the world! The first Zara in Perth opened yesterday at Garden City Shopping Centre. The two-level space not only houses a host of fashion forward women’s clothing and accessories but includes a Men’s and Children’s section too!* 

I didn’t make it to the opening yesterday (damn work, ruining my fun!) but I headed there bright and early this morning. By the time I arrived (9:05am!) the store was already packed and by the time I got to the change rooms there was a line of about 20 people! Clearly the people of Perth have been waiting a while for Zara to come our way.
I was definitely impressed with what Zara has to offer and I could have purchased a lot more than I did. With price points mostly around the $49.95-$69.95 mark it was very hard to resist! Luckily for my credit card a few of the items I wanted were sold out in my size already. 
So, welcome to Perth Zara, and from now on you can expect to see a lot more Zara in my (and everyone else in Perth’s) wardrobe! 

Have you had a chance to get to the store yet? What did you think? 

*(But ummm sorry to my daughter and husband because I did not even look in that area, next time I promise!!)

Studio Mekel Opening

The lovely (and oh so talented) Mekel Illustration opened a brand new studio at the Bayview Centre in Claremont last week and I was there to help celebrate!
 
The amount of support for Kelly was extremely evident on the night, with over 180 people coming down to witness the beginning of this new era. 
Guests sipped on delicious cocktails by Cocktail Gastronomy and snacked on tasty treats (the chocolate brownies…OMG!) courtesy of Cookie Dough Biscuits while browsing (and purchasing!) Kelly’s latest art works. 

I have been a fan of Kelly’s work for a while now, (I even did a little interview with her following the opening of her last exhibition wanderlust – check it out here if you missed it) her unique style of illustration with stunning pops of watercolour really appeals to me.. and well, who doesn’t love pretty pictures of fashionable girls!

If you are ever in the area (or even if you are not!) I highly recommend popping in to the studio.

What to Wear: Perth Cup

Day at the races

The biggest event of the Perth Racing Festival is coming up fast. For those of you stuck on what to wear to this year’s Perth Cup I have put together a what to wear guide.
You’re welcome!!
1. Bardot Peplum Dress – A simple dress that doesn’t show to much skin is a race day must.
2. Mimco Feather Veil – I am not a fan of the fascinator so when I saw Mimco’s feather veil it instantly captured my heart!  It is the perfect head piece for the anti-fascintator fashionista.
3. Turquoise Diva Necklace – A black and white dress calls for a colourful statement necklace. Bright Summer colours are a must and the bigger the better!
4. Kotur Pearce Clutch – A metallic hard case clutch with just enough room for the race day essentials. Lipstick, powder and a pencil (for filling in the betting cards!!)
5. Guiseppe Zanotti Wedges – A comfortable wedge shoe. No explanation necessary here but I will give a small hint: Grass everywhere.
