For various (almost subliminal) reasons, the colour for Milly sleeping in the maid's room is blue - French flag blue to be precise.
Here is an overdue peek into our jewellery cabinet, which holds brilliant and fine things from the Paleozoic Dreams collection by Estelle Dévé ... earrings by Alexi + Tessa ... and button brooches by High Tea with Mrs Woo. Everybody could use a big wooden button, couldn't everybody (or everybody's mum)?! Each is about 6cm in diameter.

It's been mentioned a couple of times... Milly Sleeping now has a second space in operation in the city.
On Fridays and Saturdays between 12 and 6, the store will also be operating from 1A Crossley Street - a lane that runs between Pellegrini's and The Paperback Bookshop, off Bourke Street. Milly shares a little showroom (the maid's room) with the lovely Denise and Peter of S!X, across the way from excellent Sarah Scout gallery, and above both Von Haus café bar and Lucy Folk's fantastic flagship store. Crossley Street is also the long-term home of tailors, vintage stores, galleries (including my favourite, Funaki) and Ginger Boy restaurant.
In the maid's room today, we have bags and garments by ffiXXed and Romance Was Born, scarves and wraps by Primoeza and MüCKE, new silver jewellery from Estelle Dévé's Paleozoic Dreams collection (with a selection of gold pieces remaining at MS Carlton) and new OK OK tights. Our products will be rotated and added to over time; we also have exciting plans afoot to present some mini installations in the upstairs hallway.
Relevant updates will continue to be posted at this site ... And we're having fun assembling relevant, sort-of relevant and completely miscellaneous imagery at Pinterist.

After yesterday's very dreary conditions, guess what's walking out the door today..? Woollen goodness, in the form of Strange & Strange merino layering knits and OK OK colourful tights. These are wonderful 'basics' that Milly Sleeping has stocked for several seasons in a row, simply because they are hard to beat and, as we always say, they wear and wash (even on a gentle cycle in the washing machine) very nicely thank-you...
