Shopping in Melbourne
We recently introduced you to our guest blogger, Jacquie Alexander (read our Q+A). Jacquie not only has great looking blonde hair (kept bright and clean with AG’s Sterling Silver Shampoo and Conditioner), but her style and fashion tastes are impeccable. This week, Jacquie takes us to her favourite stores in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia – looking fabulously chic with a topknot bun of course.
JOSH GOOT – HIGH STREET, MELBOURNE
Josh Goot is one of my favourite Australian designers. His pieces are unlike any other, they’re clean and minimal, but at the same time daring and loud (obviously in the best way possible). The store on High Street in Melbourne is absolutely beautiful; I could spend hours in there.
ACNE STUDIOS – HIGH STREET, MELBOURNE
Acne Studios is my absolute favourite. You literally cannot go wrong in this store; every piece is a total gasp moment. I try not to go in here too often, because I just get sad about all the things I can’t have. I strongly believe in spending money on the wardrobe basics, the things you know you’ll wear this winter, then again the next. I love Acne because you can work every piece into your existing wardrobe, and the quality is exquisite.
AESOP – EMPORIUM, MELBOURNE
I know, Aesop is totally cliché, but I honestly can’t get enough. Every Aesop store is extremely aesthetically pleasing and the staff genuinely want to help you. It’s fun to pop into when you want to try out different products, there’s never any pressure to buy. My favourite products are the Parsley Seed Anti-Oxidant Eye Serum and the Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm.
DION LEE – EMPORIUM, MELBOURNE
Another favourite store for more than just the clothing is Dion Lee in Emporium. The layout is crazy, there are mirrors on every wall tricking your eyes into thinking the store goes on forever and ever (I would not have a problem with that!). Dion Lee is my go to store for classic pieces like silk camis and off the shoulder tops, anything you try on here is bound to make you feel sexy.
THE LAIR – ONLINE STORE, SYDNEY
Since I do a large majority of my shopping online I couldn’t finish this without giving a shout out to The Lair. Based in Sydney, this shop fulfils all of my online shopping dreams. I have become obsessed with the chokers and belts The Lair creates. I love wearing a simple outfit then throwing on my choker, they do wonders for every outfit.
