Day 2: Shopping in Paddington, Woollahra and Double Bay
Today I met up with gorgeous Sydney bloggers hrose (pictured left) and i.d. (pictured right) at Paddington for a spot of (window) shopping, I had such a great time!
Today's outfit: 3.1 Phillip Lim (Koi Suwannagate collaboration) navy rosette tank dress, Claude Maus navy silk chiffon hoodie, Leona Edmiston Pins leggings in Onyx, Chloe Ava bag (practically this outfit) but with Havaianas Slim in Champagne (bought in my recent trip to Brazil).
Breathtaking moments: Seeing the sequinned bolero (below) at Akira Isogawa's Woollahra store (Queen St.), it looked so delicate & light but was incredibly heavy (reduced to $1000)! And absolutely gorgeous! Also saw an incredible Balenciaga sculptural shoe at Cosmopolitan Shoes, that could double as a door-stopper (it was so heavy), and a work of art (the incredible sculptural 'ice' heel was amazing, similar to the pic below)
William St, Paddington: Ellery (the SA was wearing the gorgeous feather capelet as a neckpiece, sadly none left in store), Vanessa Bruno, Poepke (some gorgeous Dries Van Noten pieces in here), Di Nuovo (consignment store), The Corner Shop (loved the cashmere lapel long vest/scarf by Arnsdorf), Ginger & Smart, Belinda accessories.
Glenmore Rd., Paddington: Land's End (thanks hrose for bringing me here! Balmain, Thakoon, and other fab labels), Parlour X (saw the Balenciaga bag with the leather-covered studs...interesting...), Scanlan&Theodore, Willow (gorgeous! this store wasn't here last time I was in Sydney), Kirrily Johnston, Zambesi.
Oxford St: Robby Ingham
Double Bay: Cosmopolitan shoes (saw the crazy and incredibly heavy Balenciaga shoes, not a fan of how their amazing shoes are displayed, looks like a shoe warehouse instead of a store which stocks Alaia, Balenciaga, YSL, etc...), Marni, I-Spy (Belinda's sale items), Belinda.
Food: For dinner, my cousin, hubby & I ate at a cute little Wine Bar & French Bistro called Taste Vin (Surry Hills). The waitress was so lovely, and the service excellent. Entree was Rock Oyster with Champagne vinegar & cracked black pepper, as well as a Ocean Trout confit with seared scallops and fennel salad. For main I had a lovely pan roasted spatchcock with saffron fondant potato, du Puy lentils & jus (unfortunately my pic of it didn't work, have yet to learn how to take food shots in very dimly lit places). Delicious French wine too, and to top it all off, a Creme Caramel de Maman...yum!
