We love Boyys!

When we saw this photo on street style blog Jak & Jil late last year we absolutely had to find out who made those amazing bags! So perfect...a little bit tough but still so stylish...these bags don't slap you in the face, they quietly come over tug on your sleeve and ask you to follow them back to their place. How could we not want all of them!

A clutch and shoulder bag in one

The "Slash" bag will be available in Python/Classique (pictured) and Lizard/Sweatshirt...LOVE!

The "Clyde" bag will be available in Pop Red and Black...just the right amount of detail

There will be other styles and colours available but we aren't going to show you any more because we're mean! It's a surprise.

Should be in store in about two weeks

Miss Mouse hearts hats!

If you are looking for something fun and interesting to do with the kids over the easter break I highly recommend that you go and see "Hats an Anthology by Stephen Jones" at the Queensland Art Gallery. I went on the weekend with my mum (see kids and mums!) and it was fantastic! So many creative and amazing hats from different eras and designers...little sculptures for your head.
Best of all it's free and the kids can make their very own hats at the end!

The collection comes via the Victoria & Albert Museum in London....They even had the original Darth Vadar mask from Star Wars so you can take Mr Mum as well!

You crack me up!

Here are some closer shots of the beautiful "cracked" leather Angel Wings wedge ankle boot...they are available in Storm and as you can see from the previous post I have already stolen myself a pair! Hey a dentist gets free teeth cleaning am I right....

Love the open toe...

The best thing...they sit close around the ankle for a snug that!

Once I find the right pair of chunky cable knit socks in will be a love affair

We look good in leather....and other cute things!

We have just received our new shipment from U.S designer Audrey Cantwell! The long awaited black buttery soft leather leggings are amazing...we only have four pairs and for $280 they flew out the door last year.

Audreys' fantastic asymmetrical zipper hoodie in a soft black fleece

Worn with "psycho" cat tee from Cassette Society

We also have more bullet necklaces in stock from Audrey and the best aged chocolate leather belt from Angel Wings

Too many beautiful things! We want everything!

Under the purple flowers....

In the purple flowers’ shade
You kissed me the first kiss.
The moon lit its light of jade;
The cicadas sang their song of bliss.

The latest flower arrangement by Dee....Dee hates having her photo taken but sometimes I catch her when she's not looking which always makes for a naturally beautiful shot don't you think.

Did you hear about the story of the little fabric with the magical powers?

The fabric which Natasha Gan has chosen to make these form fitting dresses from should be given a key to the city!

The fabric has just the right amount of stretch and thickness to make these sexy dresses oh so flattering...

It even makes Dee look like she has a bum!

Slightly different version in a shorter length with a deep V back

Oh magical fabric where have you been all our lives?

Miss Mouse hearts Laurence Pasquier...and Bob!

Being Friday afternoon, Dee and I have a little ritual we like to call "A couple of Kit Kats and a can of Coke". Now this isn't a daily diet you see but simply something we feel we deserve by 3pm on a Friday. The sugar slump came on by about 11am this particular Friday (blame alcohol) and we were struggling to wait till 3pm for the Kit Kats.....thank god our favourite little delivery man (let's call him "Bob") walked through the door at 2pm with an armful of Laurence Pasquier! We love you Bob....our thighs thank you!

The stunning dove grey silk marble print dress with side drape and sheer sleeves

Worn with the amazing wide corset double buckle belt in vintage tan

Beautiful nude silk pleat butterfly blouse...worn tucked into the leather Tato & Memi skirt

Pleat detail....full flutter sweet

Leather trim fold front slouch pants

Close up of the leather panel

The amazing double buckle corset belt....despite it's appearance it is really comfy as it doesn't cut in at the waist.

Back view of the diamond leather detail

Woven nude leather wrap over cuff with copper buckle

Diamond tan leather wrap over cuff

Come back soon Bob!

More beautiful pieces from Tato & Memi!

The "I'm not too short or too tight" twist skirt...

So comfy and flattering

We LOVE our new things better than our old things!

We had a new delivery from one of our favourite local labels today....Goddess of Babylon.

We had this gorgeous suede poncho last Winter in Tobacco but this year we have chosen the most beautiful slate brown. This has to be the softest suede I have ever felt!....Dee will be living in this at Blues n' Roots at Easter!

Beautiful laser cut pattern at the back.

The prettiest cotton gathered blouse which drapes in the front. Cute stitched bib panel.

Slightly cropped at the back with cute coconut buttons.

Has that old Edwardian mens shirt feel to it! Worn here with one of our new vintage handpainted horse leather belts. More styles available.
