We were lucky enough to attend the Ruth Tarvydas show at PFW. Ruth nevers fails to disappoint in her designs...in particular one green sequinny number which I have pictured here. Stunning, I have no where to wear it of course and suspect this may be too formal for my 'sequins to breakfast' this weekend (reference to my last post!).
Sarah, Kim and I went to the show and I LOVED watching all the fashion types in their 'this old thing' not-trying-too-hard ensembles...lots of sunnies at night too...very Anna Wintour in the front row. I, however, was like a kid in a shoe shop ( I know that's meant to be candy shop but I was a different kind of kid ok?). I couldn't stop smiling at everyone....apologies to the woman in the front row who thought I was on the slightly crackers side of life! Anyhoo, it occurred to me that some people take fashion VERY seriously....I get it...I guess. It's a career, a love, a livelihood....but it's also meant to be fun. So here's me and the Sorella Store girls doing our very best to pull our serious fashion faces ( I look like I'm taking my own pulse).
In all seriousness though, a big round of applause to everyone involved, in particular the stylists, many of whom volunteered their time for PFW. You did an outstanding job. Long hours and commitment paid off! If you have aspirations to be a stylist, or just want to know what's involved, head to our Facebook page for our Search for a Stylist Competition...you never know where it may lead! More happy photos of us at PFW. Even if one day I'm sitting front row with the celeb types at the Paris runway, I will still be smiling like a lunatic and taking lots of this-is-so-exciting photos....which is probably why I'll never be invited! ha ha

Sequins at breakfast

So I'm often heard saying that I would wear sequins at breakfast. And it's true. I actually wore my Angel Wings top to breakfast with friends last Sunday.
I have no idea where my love of all things sparkly came from, but I suspect after years in the corporate world, where sequins were frowned upon, I am rebelling. It's like glitter is ok at primary school, maybe ok at high school, but certainly not at university. Side note - I told a friend's four year daughter the other day, that I liked glitter as a kid. I'm too old to play with glitter now so I wear it instead! So back to sequins at breakfast, well, why not? Why do we save out best pieces for special occasions? These days, I am so tired at the end of the day, a special occasion is making it through dinner....with conversation.....and maybe red wine! So special for me is Sunday breakfast with friends. Now I'm not saying I would go head to toe in sequins, but let's face it, I'm not completely against the idea. Now that the cooler weather is on its way, why not rebel against all the dark clouds and add punches of colour to everything you wear - maybe this Owl of Eden necklace
, or add these red Miz Mooz boots
, or even match the Owl of Eden necklace with these teal Siren pumps?!
Hoping to see you in sequins at breakfast soon (if you aren't wearing them already!) xx

New local talent

This week I was fortunate enough to meet with a fabulous new local talent - Nat from 'Handmade by Nat'. I've been very excited about seeing her work because I knew it promised to have colour and incredible bead work. So imagine how happy I am to say that in a week, Sorella Store will be the exclusive stockist of 'Handmade by Nat'.....well until everyone realises how good her work is and tries to snap her up too! I've attached some pics of her work, but for more, check out the Sorella Store facebook page.

Sorella Store also carries local designers Sophie Kyron, Lavish, Paper Skye and we've just picked up gorgeous styles for next Summer from Zahir.

Supporting local talent is really important. We have an emerging and growing fashion industry in WA and it's inspiring to see new designers and new collections every season. The work that goes into each collection is mind-boggling; the design inspiration; the drawing and re-drawing of styles; sourcing fabrics and metals and stones and gems; meeting with agents; manufacture and production; sourcing stockists; fashion shows; media and marketing; and you are always work several seasons ahead! So big love from us to all the creative minds keeping us in amazing fashion. xx
