One for the girls... and may soon appear in my wardrobe...
« on: April 24, 2017, 08:53:45 AM »
Here's a few items from Review Australia's current collection that may make an appearance in my wardrobe once some other items are paid off!  ;)

https://www.review-australia.com/blog/trend-60s-mod-girl/

Bonus, they do ship overseas. So, if you want to grab your missus something nice, Review Australia is one of the few [womens] labels I recommend from my part of the world!  :)

Well, my wife isn't really into 60s-inspired clobber, but I bet she wouldn't mind sporting the Pietra dress, timeless beauty  8)

I like this one also, but I'd remove the pleated fringing on it...

And this with a removable "fur" collar...

That last coat looks the part, but no sure when ye'd ever need a fur collar in the Aussie climate.

I wish I knew you were in town Simon, I could've shown around the place. Besides, the Melbourne I'm from originally we are used to four seasons in one day. I'm in Ballarat now (1.5 hours from Melbourne) and that's like Glasgow in the winter. In fact, it's like that now, and it's bloody Autumn!!

It was a while ago that I was in Melbourne Becky , infact , if '83 refers to your birth year , I was there before you were born by a couple of years . I had relatives over there and travelled around the country meeting them , went to Ballarat too and some other places with Aboriginal names ..
The Mod revival hadn't touched Australia at that point as far as l could see . If I mentioned it to guys l just got a blank look but still beautiful country
