27 bags

Remember the movie 27 Dresses? Well, here are 27 fabulous vintage bags (from vintage bag lady Dustbunny Vintage and our fave fashion blogger Fashion is Spinach) that are now available at our shop. Prices range from $39 to $129 so bag one before they're all gone. Remember, there is only one piece of each, so you need to move fast.

























drawing board


For us, the most exciting part of a collection is when the final product comes back from the seamstress. Hence, the look of pure happiness on my face as I tried on the first piece to be finished from our upcoming partywear collection.


Here, Pris is hard at work sketching her meticulously drawn illustrations. If you look carefully, she is actually colouring the dress from above, but in a different colour scheme, which will also be available, come November. So watch this space, cos we're having a party and you're all invited!
