I recently had the pleasure of helping out my pal Millie Tang with a lovely photoshoot she dreamed up, inspired by an exceedingly sweet house in Paddington.
She brought along an array of quirky and colourful outfits from local vintage & up-cycle queens, Ra Ra Superstar. All Ra Ra designs are made from recycled or vintage fabrics, and who doesn’t love sustainable fashion?? Buttheads, that’s who!
With the help of Megan Farquharson for hair and makeup, I was transported back in time in this ethereal series of dreamy photographs.
Beautiful photography by the extremely creative Millie Tang – you can check out her work here or on Facebook.

I have quite the love affair with Perth (and there’s more to come about that later 😉 ) and this little boutique definitely adds to the reasons why!
I discovered Gipsy Boy Boutique on instagram a few months ago, and knew straight away it was right up my alley! My best friend checked it out and agreed, and we made a date to visit this adorable establishment on my next Perth holiday.
Sure enough, when I arrived it blew my expectations out of the water 🙂
The shelves were stocked with great labels that perfectly complemented the carefree bohemian vibe of the store, gorgeous sparkling crystals, and a wide assortment of vintage teacups to choose from.
Another reason to adore Gipsy Boy is that they combine my three all time favourite things… tea, food & fashion.
Delicious and nutritious raw desserts accompany a fresh tasty menu using locally sourced food, and a range of teas to suit any tastebuds 🙂
We were very well looked after this quiet morning at Gipsy Boy Boutique, and it’s very safe to say that we will be back! 🙂

“have you heard of the girl with the sun on her skin, who can make flowers grow with her light from within?
and she runs through the world leaving life in her wake, with blossoms all lining the path that she takes. she must be quite shy for she’s never been seen, but she’s what paints the grass such a rich shade of green.
i’ve heard people say that there’s dew in her veins, that whenever she’s lonely or hurting, it rains. and if you listen on nights that are early in spring, you might just hear her voice on the breeze as she sings…”
