Gwenadue shoot...

To all my fashion-crazed followers,

I want to introduce you to an oh so talented friend of mine Kelsey Menadue, who is the super cutest designer of 'Gwenadue'.. Kelsey and I met at Tilkah, while I was helplessly shopping for jewellery. Her sweet and adorable nature shone right through me each time she would compliment on an ensemble that I was wearing. We became Facie friends right away, and then I discovered that she designed most of her wardrobe. I was awe-inspired by her craftsmanship and fine eye for detail, as each piece exemplified my fervor for vintage. She told me that she was looking at making a 'Breakfast at Tiffany's Audrey skirt' and when these words were spoken, I was so intrigued and interested in modelling her new collection. After a devastating ordeal of losing the photos from the first shoot, we soldiered on and happily conducted the shoot again at Fitzroy gardens. I had the time of my life, and would do it all again in a heartbeat. So ladies, come and be enchanted by this dreamy and fairy-like nature of Gwenadue's new collection: 'The Black Forest'...

Much love,

Miss CoutureVintageX

I heart Cecylia...

My dear friends,

I am so so sorry for being 'blog absent'. The past few weeks have been crazy- finishing off my final assignments. But all is done, and I am happily free for a month to devote all of my time, love and attention to my blog and increasing the number of followers (p.s- I also wanted to thank those of you who constantly check out my posts and support me with your valuable comments and feedback).

Now for some exciting news! Earlier this week, I went to meet a very pretty friend of mine Cecylia who has a self-titled boutique on High Street, in Armadale. I remember first seeing Cecylia at a fashion show I attended. She was holding the cutest dog in her hands, and I recall thinking to myself: 'God, I love her stunning cape!' So I found her on Facebook and after conversing back and forward, we decided to meet in person (and thank God for that!) I walked into her boutique and had love hearts in my eyes. She stocks the most AMAZING international and Australian designers such as Sophia Kokosalaki (this woman is brilliant and my favourite!), Alldressedup, Karla Spetic, Repetto (adorable shoes), Spijkers en Spijkers, Felder Felder (two fantastic labels and Sara Phillips.

Now let me tell you a little bit about this phenomenal Cecylia!
1.) She's soooo pretty!
2.) She wears amazing clothes.
3.) She achieved her dream of one day owning a boutique.
4.) She's soooo smart!
5.) She's amazing!
6.) She has her own blog (http://cecylia.com)
7.) She has the cutest Chihuahua ever.... and the list goes on, but I think you get my drift!

So I spent like two whole hours besotted in her boutique and meticulously looked through each rack. I fell head over heals in love with many pieces, but my favorites were:

The lovely Cecylia! And the beloved Theodore.

Lights, camera, action!

The interior of her boutique is so vintage-like with damask printed lounges and chairs and burgundy velvet change rooms. It's like a kid walking into their favorite candy shop! Or just me walking right into my element.. Ahhhh!

(I am wearing a vintage poncho, zip leather leggings, and my Jeffreys.)
Everyone meet Theodore! Isn't he just the cutest?!

And the browsing begun! I think I almost raped her whole boutique, but these two dresses were my favorite garments (the Spijkers en Spijkers metallic dress and I became besotted with this Sophia Kokosalaki state of the art leather dress..) The lovely Cecylia even suggested I return back to the boutique so we can do a photoshoot in my favorite pieces. How fun!

To-die-for Repetto shoes (I particularly liked the Mary Janes and the Kate Moss brogue flats)...

This Spijkers en Spijkers blazer and notorious Sara Phillips shirt were also my pick outs! This blazer was so perfect for me. The shirt I have seen in a number of photo shoots and seeing it live and feeling the texture of it made me want it moreee... Aww... Check out little Theodore in the corner!

Thank you Cecylia for inviting me into your boutique and treating me like royalty. I really enjoyed that delicious muffin! I'm looking forward to that photo shoot.

Much much much love, your biggest fan
Miss Couture Vintage X.
