More Melbourne

A few mixed pics from Melbourne.

Beautiful homes at Fitzroy
Main drag at Fitzroy
Little Creatures Dining Hall at Fitzroy (wicked place btw, Brisbane needs one!)

St Kilda
Pretty coffee

I heart Melbourne. I would love to move there, if only the weather wasn't so different to Brisbane. We felt like such out-of-towners rugged up in our scarves, jackets and boots while local Melbourners walked around in t-shirts and shorts. 

Melbourne Buys

Here are a couple of my Melbourne buys... A Toi Et Moi top and Wittner heels. I've been searching for another black heel to tag team it with another pair that I wear to death!

Road Less Travelled

I have been on another brief hiatus, this time to Melbourne. I went down for work but then hubby met me down there last Friday and we spent a few days eating, drinking, shopping and exploring. I had been to Melbourne a couple of times before (also for work trips) and well to say I had seen the city would be a serious overstatement. More like the inside of a conference venue. Hubby hadn't been before. 

We went on a few trips out of the City: St Kilda, Prahran, Fitzroy and Windsor.  I never find stores where I want absolutely everything in store, but I did at Dorothy & Evelyn at Windsor!
Such a beautiful store... The mix of cute vintage dresses, new finds, pretty ornate jewellery and homewares were so beautiful. Considering I had already gone over my luggage limit on the way down (hey, I really needed those 6 vintage summer dresses ok? Not.) I just bought a Toi Et Moi top and a pair of earrings. I definitely could have bought more. Lots more. 

Oh Dorothy & Evelyn.. would you consider opening a store in sleepy old Brisbane? (especially since I make it sound so appealing?)
