One of my favourite shopping haunts in Brisbane is Blonde Venus. Owner Thea is one of the pioneers of the Brisbane fashion scene. For the past 15 years Thea has been discovering and stocking new Australian and International labels (like the very talented Mary Katrantzou) before any one has heard of them. Many of the labels Thea has stocked were up and coming and now they are huge and stocked all over the world. I have been shopping at Blonde Venus for the past 10 years and during that time Thea has introduced me to so many fantastic labels and also become a beautiful friend. She certainly has a fabulous eye for fashion and I have spent many afternoons with her trying on clothes and discussing runway shows.
Today I am wearing some of my favourite Blonde Venus pieces. The Karen Walker for Beau Coops heels are a great neutral colour so they work well in my wardrobe with many different looks. I am also wearing my most recent purchase, these Alpha 60 Bayley shorts. They sit perfectly on my waist and I love the fabric. Blonde Venus has recently opened a store in Melbourne and the online store ships worldwide.
My top is an Empire Paper Bodice from Zimmermann. This is a gorgeous, vintage inspired feminine piece. The black embroidered dot and frill detail are exquisite. It works perfectly with shorts and layered under dresses. It will also look fantastic with my black leather skirt, a pair of strappy heels and a Swarovski crystal head band to wear to one of the up and coming spring race days.
I chose the George Jensen Cuff for my 17th Wedding Anniversary present. I actually don’t buy much jewellery but am quite sentimental when I do. I had coveted this piece for a long time and I am very happy I bought it.
This is my first Chloe handbag purchased 2 and 1/2 years ago and it has been used again and again. Its a great neutral colour, its a cross body and it is the perfect size to fit my phone, lipstick and small purse.
