If you haven’t heard of St Ali, and their famous coffee, it’s pretty safe to say you’ve been living under a rock. They’re the biz. And now, thanks to their new cafe ‘The Outpost’ in the shiny South Yarra Precinct it’s not only South Melbourne locals who can enjoy their unique blend. Check out some pics by the lovely T. Rigney
You can find it at at 9 Yarra Lane, South Yarra, just like you can find St Ali in Yarra Place South Melbourne. Open 7:30-5pm, Monday to Friday. See you there sat morning for a coffee after the tan!! Wooot.
This shady getaway is a destination, not just a one shop stop.
Decide. Purchase. Step outside across the road for a well deserved crepe at Roule Galette. Ahhh. Yum. You’ll have to skip all your other meals cos you won’t be fitting into your dresses after that baby.
Given the current economic climate we have to make our clothes go further. All the mags are talking about classic pieces, the white shirt, the little black dress and so on and so forth. Correct. These pieces are must haves.
But there are many other articles of clothing that (I believe) go towards creating the ‘capsule’ wardrobe. In particular the black t-shirt, the hoodie, hot jeans . . . anything plain that you can then accessorise.
It’s tough finding good plain clothes. Items that you can wear over and over again without feeling like you look same same.
So, if you’re black tee is looking a little thin head down to Plane Clothes on Chapel Street and check out their range of garments refreshingly free of ridiculous squiggles and lame-ass-slogans. They stock happening brands like Minty Meets Munt, Lola & Evie and Huffer.
Plane Clothes 143 Chapel Street Windsor. Ph. 9521 3307. Make sure you check out the change rooms. There’s nothing plain about them.
Don’t ask me how, but some how I managed to score an invite to opening night of the new Bvlgari store on Collins. That’s the Paris end of Collins of course.
We sipped on Gin Martinis, held bags we would never own, drooled over jewels and bookmarked our engagement rings. Diamonds that blind. Lovely.
I got a few pics but my camera didn’t do the outfits justice under the bold lights of the store. Snappety Snap.
My buddy and I were a bit disappointed that our goody bags didn’t contain one of their new cuffs or a pair of sunnies that we’d been eyeing off all night. We only got perfume.
Oh, it’s a hard life.
