Tonight I had the pleasure of meeting the singular Oscar of Oscar Oscar at the new Fortitude Valley salon opening. There is a giant white horse at the back on the store but unfortunatetly you can’t see it in the photo. Located at 354 Brunswick Street the new salon has mirrors that could challenge Versailles. So next time you need a haircut meet Oscars favourite pony at the new valley salon.

This is the cutest nailpolish commericial I have ever see (but the cutest names for nail polishes still belongs to OPI).

It’s just a little something to get all Brisbane Fashion lovers in the mood for the new Chanel store.

The Cat is Out of the Bag

A Chanel bag that is. It’s finally happening the scaffolding is coming down. I would guess that it’s so close that you could hold your breath, and if you died well it was in the name of fashion.

The confirmation came in the mail in the form of the december Vogue ( so it’s a reliable source) and the inside cover looked like this:

Keep in mind this is the December issue but I think even Chanel knows that everyone starts their Christmas shopping before December.

Also a little card fell out detailing that the store with stock ready-to-wear, handbags, shoe, jewellery and watch collections.

It’s going to be one small step for Chanel and one giant step for Brisbane.
