OHAI there~!! It’s been long since I last blogged. It’s always a mad rush before Christmas, shopping for gifts and basking in the mood. This post comes about a week too late since I was in Melbourne 2 weekends ago. It feels like we haven’t met in so long but it was in actual fact just about 2.5mths since the Nuffnang awards.

Here’s Candice from SuperKawaiiMama and Phoebe from LadyMelbourne , we shared the same table during the Nuffnang awards and we had so much fun at our own “after-party” in Clarke Quay after that.

In the middle is our very awesome Geek blogger, Arnold aka Mr Gadget all decked out in black to suit the occasion.

I had a quick tour of the Melbourne GPO before the rest came along. Checked out the new Acne store and discovered that they still had the Acne Atacomas (in my size too), fell absolutely in love with a local designer label, Alpha60 which of course had mostly black clothings but unfortunately they didn’t allow pictures in the stores so do check out their website. F.A.T had a decent selection of stuff and they carried Complex Geometries albeit overpriced compared to what I can get from their website directly.

Phoebe had to rush off after lunch but she managed to sneak in some time to take me to one of the coolest stores in Melbourne called Somewhere Store.

We had to climb some stairs up so this was really an encouragement.

The store is beautifully spacious with high ceilings and plenty of light. I think it’s the optimal conditions for displaying merchandise.

They were kind enough to allow photos and which I believe is lacking in many stores lately. They’re missing out on so many publicity opportunities and we all know the Internet is such an awesome publicity tool. But well, moving on… there’s more photos.

They carry items from Cheap Monday and I spotted some Vivienne Westwood Melissa shoes that I have been coveting for awhile.

Phoebe was talking to the store manager and commenting on the fact that I only wear black and he just exclaimed: ” omg she’s so Melbourne!” That kinda made me blush, but yes I am really flattered by that.

I am so touched by the AU bloggers for taking time off to meet up with me. Hope to see you all again soon~!!!

    How exciting to see you were in my home town! Melbournians adore black, although deconstructed dressing is still new here. I wonder what you thought of the fashion here…

    P.s. please visit my blog at http://monochromefactory.blogspot.com/ !! xx

    Hello Jenny~!! I was pretty surprised cause I has thought that Melbourne was similar to Sydney where it’s all about colours. Apparently I was so wrong. I love deconstructed dressing and I do look forward to seeing more of it around.
