I went to Melbourne with great expectations of fashion-forward people strutting the streets and an insight into coming styles for its younger sister city, Wellington. However, I left with little to write home about – thus my delayed reaction in blogging.
Dangerfield – so awesome for the goth/rock/alternative look that’s often hard to find as original and not just emulating something that’s “cool”. I also loved Quick Brown Fox – another quirky/alternative find that had plenty to offer in the way of originality. I went into two outlets of each of those stores and came out bags a-swingin’ all four times. Thankfully not wearing items purchased at the counterpart store on a previous mission.
Favourite buys: Quick Brown Fox coat, Black Friday dress, Dangerfield handbag, whistle watch necklance. Other things of note: I somehow managed to avoid buying a leather jacket – there was such an abundance that I just didn’t want to go there. I’ll make do with the three other coats that I bought.
