Weekend Away

I was lucky enough to head up to Brisbane this weekend for a short break away and some highly needed relaxation time. The weather up there turned out to be perfect. We spent some time in the sun, lying on the beaches up on the sunshine coast, wondering around the southbank market and popping into Brisbane's Contemporary Gallery of Modern Art to see 'Valentino Retropective: Past/Present/Future'.
Unfortunately the no 'camera rule' was highly enforced within the exhibition so I couldn't get any sneaky snaps. The garments was very detailed though... Haute Couture indeed! The dresses dated back to 1959 when Valentino first emerged into the fashion world. Some garments are obviously outdated but the fact that each piece had been meticulously hand sewn was amazing.

Also got to pop into the Frock Shop, (boutique on James st just outside of the city). I've been following their blog and I was excited to see the Pop Corn piece was still in the window!! How cool!
