Buyer's Edit, Fashion, Kids

mini-rodini-theoandbeau1_2498If this campaign shot from the latest Mini Rodini range isn’t enough to either

a) melt your heart

b) want to clothe your kids in the entire range

c) buy a puppy

Then we don’t know what is. The Swedish children’s label is forever winning us over with their quirky yet cute designs, and we’re happy to report that their new collection is now on show at The Dressing Room.

But we’d suggest you get in quick because these designs are running out the door faster than the animals they feature. With limited stock and sizes we’d hate for you and your bambino’s to miss out!

Diamond in the rough

The new range by DHALIA features a number of geometrically inspired prints, but right now we can’t seem to get enough of the Diamond. When Monroe famously said “Diamonds are a girl’s best friend”, she wasn’t messing around. And here at The Dressing Room, we’re wearing them on our pants, shirts and dresses. If you have stars is your eyes and want to wear diamonds on your sleeves, too, we suggest you have a peek at the range of diamond printed pieces in-store and online now.

In the words of Lana Del Rey, we’ve got Diamond’s in our eyes.

Mad about Mum

It’s been a pretty topical question in and around the shop this week. Mothers, daughters, husbands and sons will waltz through the door, eyes peeled for the perfect gift,Β  musing: ‘What exactly am I going to do for mum this Mothers Day?’

Conversations about flowers, chocolates and new perfumes have had us thinking: is there a gift large enough to thank mum for being mum? After packing school lunches, ferrying us from soccer practice to ballet and being that ever-present shoulder to cry on, we think not. But we’ve managed to pull together a few ideas that will help to show mum just how amazing she is.

  • Take her on an adventure. While it’s easy to get comfortable in our urban surroundings with coffee at the fingertips and retail therapy around every corner, taking the road less traveled out of town always leads to some fun discoveries. Whether it’s wining and dining in the Yarra Valley, stepping out of reality and into a Daylesford Spa or packing a picnic and taking a hike through one of our national parks, jumping in the car with little more than a map shows that despite the activity, spending time together is one of the most valuable gifts.
  • Host a High Tea. What could be more fun than making Mothers Day a group affair? Throw on the apron, send out invitations and bring the tea set out of the china cupboard because it’s time to play hostess with the mostest. One thing your mum will love just as much as spending time with you is sharing her special day with friends. The more the merrier we say!
  • Get crafty. There’s nothing that says ‘i love you’ more than some serious creative effort. Whether it’s a home made card, knitted scarf, hand painted vase, photo collage or her favorite home cooked meal, major brownie points are up for grabs in the crafty department this Mothers Day. It’s one of those instances where ‘thought’ speaks louder than ‘bought.’
  • Have a girl’s night in. Nobody is ever too old for slumber parties, especially when they involve old school chick flicks, avocado face masks and salted caramel ice cream. Invite mum over, pull on the PJ’s and get stuck into the pampering. Nothing will make mum feel 17 again like a good gossip and a sleepover party.
  • Visit The Dressing Room! Still stuck for a gift idea? Luckily, we love our mums just as much as you do! Pop in to the shop next week or visit our online store at any time to check out the super cute range of clothing, homewares, accessories and other treats bound to put a smile on any mums face. And don’t forget to enter our Mothers Day giveaway! To win a Dressing Room gift pack valued at $150, upload a photo via Instagram of you and your mum OR you with your child, hash tag #tdrmum @thedressingroom to be in with a chance to win!

Everything looks better in leather

Buyer's Edit, Fashion

It’s that time of year again. Summer slips are shoved to the back of the closet and winter woolies become an everyday item. And it’s about this time of year the quest to find a perfect leather jacket begins. Open fronted or zipped? Cropped or oversized? Brown, white or classic black? The options are endless!

We can’t claim it as this seasons staple, but that’s simply because it’s an every-season essential. Year in and year out we see leather featuring at fashion festivals across the globe, worn both on and off the runway. It’s that timeless appeal, the fact you can effortlessly throw it on with a pair of boyfriend jeans or transform it to night-time over that classic little black dress that we love so dearly.

So while all of you have been busy doing the annual wardrobe swap-around, we’ve been tirelessly seeking out this seasons best cuts and colors to make that daunting hunt a teeny bit easier. Drop into our Sydney Road store or check us out online to see why we’ve gone hell-for-leather. Whether it be the classic jacket, a pair of ballet flats in caramel tones good enough to eat or a carry-all tote, we’ve got it and we want you to have it. And just to add to the excitement, we’ve included all leather in our 30% off sale! But don’t leave it to the last minute, sale ends Sunday!

Join our leather obsession. History shows it’ll be forever on trend.
