(Vintage maxi skirt, Cape by Lenko, Akubra Hat, Alexander Wang Bag, Vintage boots, Headmistress feather ring)
One of my friends suggested visiting this cute little boutique on Flinders Lane called 'Lenko' when i was staying in Melbourne. It was so cold that weekend i was contemplating buying a new jacket because i had only brought one with me but as soon as i laid eyes on this velvet poncho cape thingy i knew it was a blessing from above. A double take, some fumbling hands and a quick glance in the mirror later i was happily running down the street feeling like a bohemian butterfly with a pair of new (and extremely warm) velvet draped wings. What made the experience even sweeter was on my way out i was stopped on the street for a fan photo by two very lovely girls. It was quite surreal being asked if i was "Nicole the fashion blogger" and i couldn't believe they had recognised me all the way in Melbourne - i was flattered to say the least!
I'd like to say a very big thank you to everyone who came and shopped for Gary Pepper's very first buy it now auctions. I couldn't believe how quickly everything flew out of the store with over 60 dresses selling in the first 10 minutes of each auction - it was just insane! Out of 100 dresses i now have 11 left and i could never have imagined such a warm and exciting reaction from everyone so thank you! My next collection will be full of tops, skirts, jackets and many more amazing dresses i have waiting to find cosy new homes and will be another trial to test the waters. I have so many amazing things to share with you all so fingers crossed i find some time to shoot/post over the weekend :)))))
