¡Hola de Shorties

The kiddos in the window are having a fiesta, and aren't their outfit's fantastic? Our Frida Kahlo look-alike in the centre is looking particularly lovely. 
You know we're not afraid of a little colour, and with all the summer stock arriving in store, things are bound to get festive. So come on in amigos!

Stylin Scarlett: Zimmerman Maxi Dress

What more can be said about this maxi dress from Zimmerman except I want it, I want it, I want it!! Oh and checkout my hair...let's just say it was a very windy day!

Zimmerman dress $79 Mamapapa necklace $29

Outfit of the Week

We made these Monaro GT tees in the spirit of every little boy who ever dreamed of fast cars and roaring engines. Some of those boys are all grown up now, with little kids of their own - but we reckon it's never too early to be educated in the classics. Classic cars that is!
For maximum effect, pair your awesome tee with these brand new red skinny jeans from Little Rivet Denim, and a pair of too-cool Frankie Ray sunnies.

Babushka Baby

These colourful, floaty frocks are the bees knees! Babushka Baby have wowed us with beautiful designs made from 100% cotton. The result is super wearable, comfy, and cute. Best of all, every dress is certified fair trade, so you can buy them knowing they have been produced ethically.

Talk about a win-win situation!

These pretty little numbers come in sizes 2, 4 and 6, and are $59.

This is the perfect outift for a little tea party in the garden, or a vigorous rendition of "Ring around the Rosie".
