A sneak peek at some of the gorgeous things you will find in this months nest!
Many a mother has complained about the lack of children’s clothing for 7 -14 year olds. Summer + Quincy a new children’s store in Sydney aims sell clothes that children want to wear and, more importantly, that mothers want them in to, too – clothes at the right price, in quality fabrics with an emphasis on colour. As a mother of a 9 year old boy I was most excited to discover this shop. So hard to find classic/cool clothes for a boy that don’t have some surf label screaming across the front. Nothing against surf labels, or the people who wear them – its just that we live a long way from any beach, my children are the closest thing to being ghostly white and if I was being really honest – I am conservative and old fashioned and I think surf clothes look untidy! Now that I have written that my son will probably refuse to wear anything else for the rest of his life, thats the way things usually turn out for parents……
So anyway that is my secret of the day, the store is located at 222 Edgecliff Road, Woollahra – a skip and a jump from Bondi Junction. Summer +Quincy are not selling on line yet, but I will be sure to let you know when they do.

Haven Maxi Dress – Black
The fashion for chicks this season appears to be either very very short or very long dresses. I am tipping that the good old maxi dress is flaterring for most body shapes. Perfect for those days when you are feeling like some coverage, too white, dare I say too hairy, or you just are in the mood to feel feminine. This Fleur Wood dress is classic and a good investment as teamed with some boots, a skivvy underneath and a denim jacket, it will see you through to winter.
100% silk maxi dress in black with keyhole opening at the front and trimmed with a large ruffle. The waist is elasticated with a removable thick waist tie and the hem is finished off with a large gathered ruffle.

The name is intended to say it all: Bassike, a label of lust-worthy proportions born out of the simple desire to provide wardrobe staples that could be worn with ease. The brainchild of close friends Deborah Sams and Mary Lou Ryan, it stepped onto the Antipodean design scene in July 2006. From that point on, it has flourished; and what began as a breezy collection of organic cotton-jersey T-shirts, dresses and trousers has since rounded out into more softly tailored territory. The intention however, lives on: current, eternal and effortless, each piece is designed to work seperately but also in conjunction and although new styles have been added – namely wool jersey, cotton shirting, denim and leather – beauty still belongs to the wearer. With Bassike, personal style resonates.
Check out their online boutique, so striaght forward and easy to use. All items make great staples for your wardrobe.
