Threadbare & Squirrel - Fashion Squirrel!
Meandering down Haji Lane and it's veritable treasure trove of boutiques, it's easy to run out of steam - or more likely, out of spending-money before you reach the opposite end. With so many temptations and treats, it takes a thoughtful and restrained shopper to check out all there is to offer before diving head first in to the goodies.
With this in mind, I'd like to introduce you to one of my favourite shops, tucked around the corner on North Bridge road, because folks......it's definitely worth holding back until you get there. Just be warned - you may want to purchase EVERYTHING!
Thoughtfully put together in a conservation shophouse, the owners of Threadbare & squirrel, Adrian and Val clearly have an eye for detail, the kind of quirky, unique and fun detail that makes me girlishly happy. Everything is delightful, from the curios for sale, the eye-catching merchandising, to the hand-crafted fixtures and fittings. The ambiance is modern, light and airy combined with quirky and cosy; nicely topped off with eclectically stylish and the mix works just perfectly.
It's always tough to pick favourites but here are just a few of my must-haves from Threadbare & squirrel:
By Airmail create whimsical travel accessories guaranteed to get you dreaming of adventure. Their Navajo Nation tote is right on the money as it salutes the S/S 2012 catwalk collections in which Chloe, Hermes and Balmain (to name a few) had a distinct Cowboys and Indians feel. However, unless you actually live in the Wild West, frequent a saloon and regularly ride off into the sunset, you'll be wanting just a hint of Navajo print, hence this bag is perfect. Yeeeeee-ha!
By Airmail - Navajo Nation Tote: $59
Josie Chen Range: $30 for an earring to $259 for bejeweled statement necklace.
Paez Shoes: $69.90
Young & Restless - Untitled collection: $69.90 for a top to $139.90 for a dress.
