Combine sweet treats with anything, and you have the recipe (pardon the pun) for a successful morning. Even better if the 'anything' is fashion of the finest kind. Times Square Claremont did just that this morning at a lovely morning tea they hosted for a group of
pretty girls bloggers, during which we waltzed around the shopping strip causing mental credit card damage & trying to restrain ourselves.
After some chatting, a dose of caffeine & a lot of sugar, we headed out to take a look at the shops that Times Square has to offer. It was strange that even I, a Perth resident for nearly 23 years and Claremont-frequenter-extraordinaire, hadn't noticed some of the stores before. Get out from under that rock, S!
Lost Souls (above) is such a dangerous shop full of goodies that stocks local labels like Tindale & Wild Horses. It also houses what remains of Recollections, a consignment store that my Mum & I loved, but has sadly shut down!
Some financial damage was done at this shop, but you won't be able to see it for a while ;)
2nd creeper shot of Emily's outfit... it was just the perfect execution of mixed prints!
Sana - home to a lot of quality designers like Bec & Bridge, Equipment & Anna Excell. Definitely the place to go if you deserve a treat / need something for an occasion / need to stock up on fluffy jumpers.
Poppy Lissiman Addition is the home of happy clothes. Go here for a black detox.
Fluffy vest at Breathless.
My dream shoes: Valentino Rockstud flats that are haunting my dreams.
Asha Baxter-Green, the designer behind Luire, showing us how to wear one of her beautifully dyed silk scarves.
Lastly, what would a trip to Times Square Claremont be without popping into the the King & Queen of glamour? That is, Alvin Fernandez of Ae'lkemi (who was actually there and is so lovely & welcoming!) & Ruth Tarvydas. (top 2 photos & bottom 2 photos respectively)
All in all, a great morning! Sadly T was busy at uni & couldn't come, but her camera kept me company ;)
