First stop was The Lindt Cafe, where Jase and I first met each other (nearly 2 years ago to the day). We sat at the same seat, but decided not to order the same things.
The rest of the day was spent seriously shopping, with Jason choosing some adorable puppy bookends, which I kinda liked as well. Bit of a killer to carry around the rest of the day though...
We also came across an extremely cool shop, devoted entirely to the illustrations from different editions of Alice in Wonderland. I have no idea how they came up with the ability to fill an entire store on the subject, but they did. I purchased a couple of pretties.. some very long notebooks, and a quirky print that was very hard to choose from the millions.
The rest of the day consisted of my corresponding photos on Facebook; lunch, a tram back to the motel, dinner at a Thai restaurant where our orders were stuffed up and we were over charged and then an evening at The Crown and admiring the Christmas displays on the streets.
The highlight of the following day was a visit to Forever New, which is currently my favourite place to shop. I can usually wholeheartedly say I would wear everything there if I could afford everything. This time wasn't really an exception, but last season's pallet of ivory, blush & baby blue was replaced with nautical stripes, navy & coral. I managed, however, to find two cute pieces that I walked proudly out of the store with. This is my favourite:
And this was salvaged from the 1/2 price rack, and cute enough not to leave:
Still working out how to keep those sleeves in place...
