Just a random collection of photos that were taken over the weekend. A large majority of the time Luke and i were eating so I'm not really surprised most of my photos involve some sort of sweets, food, or coffee - Oh Starbucks, how I've missed you so! Among the amazing amount of Japanese restaurants scattered throughout the city we also found a Korean karaoke bar tucked away in a little back street. Seeing as Luke and i never had a chance to go to a karaoke bar when we were in Japan last year you can imagine how excited we were to finally give it a go! A bottle of wine (or two), several vodka raspberrys and an unlimited amount of bad song choices later, it was 2am and we were wandering through the city trying to find our hotel, humming Coldplay and Seal the entire way home.

The next two weeks are looking pretty crazy here. I'm shooting, editing, uploading and listing my new collection
over the weekend, which will be in store this Monday night! Then i have a surprise for all of you that will be in store only a few days later. A huge update for Gary Pepper Pieces is also hitting the store next week with over 20 pairs of lace up ankle boots, rings, and so many new amazing bags - i don't even know how many there are! I'm also busy with re branding my store and hopefully can send off everything to the printers early next week, and I've also hired a second seamstress to help manage the ridiculous amount of stock we have accumulated for the upcoming Summer season. I'm hoping it will help give me more time to finish some of my samples too! Let's just say next week is going to be HUGE...

  4. Sometimes I forget how beautiful Melbourne can be.

    I love Melbourne.

    If you're still in Melbourne, besides the vintage/retro/op stores in Melbourne CBD, there are some great op shops on Greville St (in Prahan)

  26. you went all the way to melbourne & you had starbucks!? sweet sweet thing, there are a MILLION amazing cafés at your feet, such a shame to waste all that & have a lousy starbucks.

    ReplyDelete
  27. love your pictures (as always), and your nailpolish!! what's the brand? loveeee it

  28. haha dear my two only anonymous': Starbucks was not the only place we had coffee. Every morning we went to breakfast on degraves street and enjoyed a coffee first thing in the morning, and throughout the day all over the city.

    I will not lie though, the closest starbucks to me is nearly 2 hours away so i do enjoy a good caramel mocchiato - it's been long overdue! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. I can't believe you don't have a starbucks near you Nicole! I feel like they surround me as much as mcdonalds does.

    You look amazing & I love looking at photos of familiar places taken by people who aren't familiar with them. does that make sense? I guess everything looks so nice from a fresh perspective, thats why.

    Anyway, I am disappointed you didn't tell me you were coming to Melb, it would have been so nice to meet up with you and your boy. Coming back again soon I hope? x

  30. melbourne vintage is SO OVERPRICED! I think because Melbourne is so creative, and so many locals love quirky clothing in Melbourne compared to Syd. I shop in sydney for all my vintage pieces now- its just become so impossible shopping in melbourne and fighting for bargains against endless vintage boutique stores here! its so disappointing! oh well! c'est la vie...and hello sydney!!

  61. every stills are so wondering.. so words to describe about this.. Of course if you are going to race a bike down the slopes of the Alps or across the country on some gnarly dirt track then a bicycle helmet makes good sense. Bikes Melbourne
