Bright Star

Last week, I found myself sans les enfants, so I decided to meander through the shops, have sushi for dinner and then head to the Dendy to see the very beautiful Bright Star. Blissful it was, all of it, but especially the movie, I floated home. It was beyond beautiful actually. Go and see it. Jane Campion has done an amazing job. The storyline is romantic and dreamy yet sensitive, and oh, so sad. I absolutely loved the costumes. Every one of them.

Much to my delight, there were many Sophie Digard pieces worn by both Fanny and Toots Brawne.
Not to mention the ruffles and feathers and English countryside and wit and Bluebell walks and Georgian homes and Daffodil gardens and desperation and divine fabric stitched exquisitely and passion and intimacy and wonderful music and pure, pure love.

This is a "must own" movie. And you can get your very own Sophie Digard here.

Bird Lovers

Louis Vuitton in Castlereagh Street, full of birdy goodness, sure to make all bird lovers flock.

The birdy clutch. A little song to go with these images.

Out and About

Such a splendid, happy face. But, I'm wondering if that is botched Botox?

With no plans, we just happened upon Luna Park tonight - just to walk through, no rides, just walking.

Took a few goes, but I finally got this shot.

Mini Empire State Building x 2? Great light and clouds tonight.

Looking for the princess in the tower.

A Sojourn

This week I went with my sister for a little day trip to the Southern Highlands. We stopped at Mittagong firstly and perused the local antique and quilt shops. We then headed for Bowral in the most casual of fashions - after all, we were sans husbands and childrens! So to some lunch at Elephant Boy and then a meander along Bong Bong Street. We found the very gorgeous My Place, spent quite some time admiring fabrics and beautiful things until we realised that time was really getting away from us and we needed to cover more ground.

Our last stop of the day was Peppergreen Antiques. Even after numerous visits to this amazing store, I am still very overwhelmed by it. It is an antique store with department store proportions. Huger than huge. I delight in the extensive haberdashery collections, the linen - sheets, pillowcases, tablecloths, that cover a huge space, the teacups, the cutlery, the jewel, the vintage magazines. The above photos are from there.
