Things have been a little quiet here of late! I have been busily working on a few exciting secret projects.
One of which is my new label GHOSTLY!
It will be launching in October but I thought I'd give you a little sneak peek....

It's all very new, but if you would like to follow ghostly on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM you will get all the updates :)

 Awww geez! I love my Monolog top!  
(sad/cranky photo face is not representative of my feelings on this top...I'm just pretty bad at doing smiley photo face!)

This is one of two tops I bought from my shop ages ago...and I gotta tell you, they have been the best!
All of Monologs pieces are hand screen printed and constructed in Melbourne, and the quality is amazing...
I have worn this one so many times and it's still as lovely as the day I got it.
The cut is quite oversize which I's just so easy to wear! and the print and colour is wonderful!
So a big thanks to Monolog! you make getting dressed fun :)

Here is that great Diaz pineapple top that I mentioned in the last post.  As I said...I got it at the amazing Dagmar Rousset, and it has been such a summer favourite!  The pineapples are all hand-coloured making each t-shirt extra special :) man I love it..I need to find a way to make it work in winter time (perhaps a little 90s style short sleeve over long sleeve tee action is called for!)
Diaz are having a little sale on-line at the should go have a look.

These sunnies were a christams gift a few years ago from my pa! he chose perfectly :)
Also, i've been enjoying covering up my 'in-need-of-haircut' hair with all manner of scarves lately...
you can't go wrong with a giant paisley scarf now can you!?

So long summer :( these pics were taken last week on what might have been the last summery day of the season.

Dagmar Rousset

Dagmar Rousset is such a great shop! These photos are from a few months ago when I popped in to check out their amazing new fit out....
man it looks wonderful!
I picked up a super fun Diaz tee that I have been wearing constantly (I'll show you pictures sooooon)
and had a good catch up with shop owner extraordinaire Julia!

I really gotta get back there soon....they have some amazing new ALL knitwear beanies that I love the look of...and I want to lust over all the PAM goodness in person :)

Brights & Black

 Poppet outfit for a sunny day! This chiffon top is one of my most loved pieces from the spring/summer collection last year...I've been wearing it all the time! 
The crazy print goes with almost anything...but I generally team it with ol' trusty black skirt (I whipped up this skirt up years ago whilst in a 'lack of black skirt' frenzy) its a well worn favourite...and just the other day I made an updated with extra pleats!! fun

Pink socks are always a nice touch! I got these ones from Myer...they have a really nice selection of colours!

My 'Only Midge' bag is having a sit down on this cute old chair found in the laneway behind my house.
The lovely plant life is all thanks to my gardening expert housemate...I have no skill in keeping greenery alive :(
Lil' goat necklace was a gift from a handsome man (oooooh!) and I love it :)

Ps....If you would like one of these chiffon tops get in touch...I've sold out in the shop, but have enough fabric left to make a couple more!!

You all know my buddy Trish (from Trish Hunter Finds!) 
Well she just opened up an incredible shop called Hunter & Co. Vintage.
I went to the grand opening the other week and it is so amazing. 
You should go check it out if you are looking for vintage & retro furniture, collectables and records....

Here are a couple o' pics from the opening party...

Trish and I in the 'study' that map!

The front section of their massive shop is partitioned off into the cutest rooms!
They are all different and always changing! 
It is such a great way to show off all their amazing vintage wares in the context of a a retro ikea :)

Black & White

Check out the latest Poppet design!
I made this dress for a special event...and it has been my go-to party dress since!
It's been to a fancy birthday, amazing New Years Eve party,  and last night I wore it to the grand opening of Hunter & Co. Vintage!  

The stretch sateen is so comfortable to wear....pockets are the best in a party dress...and the black and white print is really fun :)  
Basically I love it! I will definitely be making some more of these for the shop...I'll keep you posted

I had such a fun time at the opening of Trish Hunters first retail shop, it looks amazing! 
I will do a post in a few days with lots of lovely photos of their amazing vintage store.
