Worn By Gabby

Have had some beautiful pics emerging lately of people with their Rianna Phillips clutch bags and scarves. Here is the little stunner Gabby with her Orphelia clutch bag. The mini version is still available here. I love the jacket she's wearing here, it's by August Street, check out their website here or buy it here. Witchery leather shorts and T by Alexander Wang vest top. See Gabby's original blog post here.

Pompidou Boutique at Byron Bay

Im home from Australia and feeling refreshed from the fantastic experience (and also extremely jet lagged from the awful 30 hour trip home!) Whilst we were there we visited Byron Bay on the Gold Coast. We did all the typical tourist activities like going to the beach, surfing and my sister went hang gliding. And of course I went on a boutique hunt. Byron Bay has quite a quirky mix of surfer style shops like Billabong, Quicksilver and Roxy mixed in with great little one off boutiques like Pompidou.

It stocked a great range of brands and I was loving that it carried those Aussie brands that are harder to find in the U.K like Maurie and Eve, Bec and Bridge and Aje. But then there was a great mix of well know brands like Sass and Bide, Camilla and Marc, Ksubi and Cheap Monday.

The boutique itself had a really chilled out atmosphere and reminded me of a beach hut with all the intentionally aged looking white interior. I liked the way that lifestyle objects like books and candles were carefully merchendised in with perfectly folded clothing.

If your in the Byron Bay area its well worth a visit.
