Come Sail Your Ships Around Me













Photographs by Montclare

While taking a driving lesson this past Wednesday in one of Melbourne's notorious heat waves we decided to stop off at the beach for a dip. After almost 4 years of living in Melbourne this is the second time we've been swimming, the first was two summers ago when the temperature was pushing 55C... It felt amazing to have salty skin and a beachy bob once again!

Last night I caught up with Josie after months of us being tied to our respective sewing machines. Her boyfriend and housemate Sarah cooked the most amazing Japanese feast, complete with Sake and Miso. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! It was so wonderful to see her new home, amazing sewing room and the beautiful dresses she's working on for Frances Baker. If you haven't seen her new collection do yourself a favour and check it out, so much beauty!


Also I wanted to mention that in preparation for the big move I am selling most of my life on ebay. I've listed plenty of vintage dresses, shoes, bathing suits and even seamed stockings so be sure to have a peek here.

  3. Oh goodness, the yellow mustard dress is divine. Also I totally understand the whole "ignoring the beach" thing. I live about 20 minutes away and I only visit probably once a year.
