Dress: Vintage @ Thrush
Last night The Sophisticate invited me to the pre-preview opening for a new art show at the Gorker Gallery in Fitzroy.
I thought I’d thumb my nose at the Melbourne art scene and wear my ridiculously bright and sunny vintage dress instead of the traditional black.
I’ve finally found a cardigan that works properly with this dress – it’s from my favourite Melbourne cashmere shop – 8Inkerman – and I’m so delighted with it. It’s a silk cashmere blend that’s perfect for throwing over a summer dress in the evenings.
So, the exhibition was excellent and I’d thoroughly recommend it for any Melburnians at a loss for something to do over the next two weeks. Quick smart though – especially if you’re interested in expanding your own art collection. The Sophisticate and I both walked away with pieces from the extraordinarily talented “Acorn” (Mine’s called “Taulu” and it’s beautiful) and the number of “sold” dots on the walls grew every time you looked.
