Just around the corner from work, is a beautiful shop called Blonde Venus. It’s in Crossley Street which is also home to lots of other cool shops and eateries including Becco and Gingerboy. I have become somewhat obsessed with the dresses in this shop, as they’re beautifully structured and tailored with a waist, full skirts and some of the most divine fabrics. I will sometimes get off the train at the State Library and walk up to work, passing through the street in the early hours of the morning. For me it’s like a Breakfast at Tiffany’s moment, where you can go, have a look in the window and feel nothing can go wrong.
This lacy dress above is the most recent one on display which would be gorgeous for the party season.
I see this and think Sailor suit :).
This was on display just before Derby Day in early November. The black and white fabric was amazing.
The leather dress with chiffon blouse screamed out for stilettos, hair in a bun, and glasses perched at the end of one’s nose- perfect for a librarian with attitude!
I usually wear black, rather than navy, but seeing this dress I would change my mind…
The coat! I would feel like I had stepped out of a Dior photoshoot on the streets of Paris if I ever wore this :).
I’ll keep walking past and taking photos, with a New Year resolution to finally go inside.
