I was excited about this project. Shelley Spence (owner) has been my hairdresser for 12 years and we have always had serious style cohesion. We have been talking all things fashion and style since the beginning. So working with her and her staff, all super talented and all-round lovely women, was always going to be great fun.
However, there is much less of a preloved and vintage scene here than in Australia or the USA. It is more about shiny new Birkin’s than the vintage Chanel clip-on earrings. In short, there aren’t many stores. You have to work hard to find the shops themselves, let alone the treasures. That being said, I am rarely defeated and did manage to walk away with some great finds.
