FF: Melbourne Chills
Definitely south of home with all that cool winter breeze and crisp air. I love the cold - I thrive in the cold. While others rug up under their blankets and look grim in their layers, I am smiling and I am blessing my favourite kind of weather.
I'm rather sorry I took very little street style shots, so for today and SS I'm going to stretch the terms a little further.
It will be a selection of sights and a couple of people here and there. Sometimes you just want to enjoy a city without snapping away at every corner - plus how was I to shop without both hands :)
Since it is Fashion Friday I'll let you in on a not so secret secret - Melbourne is fantastic for shopping! Outlets, amazing shopping malls, wonderful little boutiques, laneways filled with charming small business, markets of all sorts and bargains to sink your teeth in to. I went a little bit frock crazy (no surprises there) and I snatched up a few Alannah Hill dresses for an obscenely low amount - it did get me thinking though - Alannah, you really do get quite a profit!
Awww look at this wintery dog -
Just chilling in the park -
I thought the hipsters in Brisbane were already cool - Melbourne brings a whole new ball game to the world of hipsters. With all these hidden laneways, graffiti alleys and general cool this demographic of young, slightly alternative, cool and collected dominates the town.
One of the many wonderfully character filled laneways. Brisbane is trying its little heart out to revitalise our forgotten laneways and I have faith it will make it - give it a couple of years Brisvegas might just say hello world.
Finally got to wear my leather pants from America!
I've got a few more street snaps of dear of Melbs and then back to the simplicities of Brisbane - I know, I'm a little sad too.
And just because I can here's another President Bartlett quote -
"Words when spoken out loud for the sake of performance are music. They have rhythm and pitch and timbre and volume. These are the properties of music and music has the ability to find us and move us and lift us up in ways that literal meaning can't"
