For Rainy Days

Chinese Laundry Plastic Shoes. Available online or from David Jones. These shoes are perfect for those few weeks in Brisbane when it just doesn’t stop raining. The picture is a little bit blurry but they are clear and the dots are sparkles.  Also available are black, pink, green and yellow in the same style but with no sparkles and a velvet bow across the toe.

Over the next few posts I am aiming to show the best of what was on offer at Brisbane Fashion week. I am slightly bias as George is a QUT fashion graduate but that doesn’t change the fact that this 5 year old brand has absolutely stunning pieces.  Brisbane stockists include The Tribune, Nancy King and Chasing Bow. OR just head to the website to find out more.
