Brisbane has been blessed with a perfect summer this year. And it keeps get warming and I can’t stop dreaming of being in the ocean. And thanks to all the beautiful swimwear available by our amazing Australian designers I want to be at the beach even more! Here are my favourite looks and inspiration …

I just love local designer Paula Walden. Not only are her pieces just beautiful, but so is she and we are lucky enough that she often models her collections (!). You can find select pieces at Bessie Head at Broadway on the Mall, or head to her Facebook page here for stockist details and to view her collections. And she will be showing her collection as part of Fashion at 10 at the Hilton on 13 October – just in time for Melbourne Cup.
Happy Easter lovers! Most stores are open on Saturday and Tuesday over the long weekend so it’s the perfect time to take a breather, get inspired, then find what you are dreaming of … Plus don’t forget the other fashionable things going on … QueensPlaza’s Avant-Garde Design Competition, Broadway on the Mall’s Blogger Competition, Garnsis e-boutique launch next Thursday at Zuri, and on a different note we wanted to let you know about Together Brisbane – it’s all about letting the world know that Brisbane is better than ever after the floods (including some of our favourite boutiques that were affected). You can make your own image and post it on your Facebook page. So start spreading the love!
We’ll be back on Wednesday with more fashion goodness xx
I know I’ve already said it, but it really is starting to cool down in Brisbane. What to do?

Here are our fave options from our fave city stores …
