Even though it's a Monday, and a grey Monday at that, Milly Sleeping is open today, until 4pm or so. (Pop in to see our party of dresses from past seasons, mingling up the back of the store - reduced by between 30% and 60%!)
The store will be shut all day tomorrow (Tues. Nov. 1) for Melbourne Cup Day, and back on Wednesday through Sunday.
Two of these new styles were delivered this morning (by the designers themselves - how nice), while one of them was wrapped up and taken home. There was a high five before lunch, and we knew it was going to be a top day.

Clockwise from top left:
the adorable Limedrop check tail shirt on the runway - only one left at Milly Sleeping;
images from the beautiful Kuwaii store in Brunswick - now officially open;
Romance Was Born as seen in Madison magazine - their jewel print tuck dress has been a real favourite - also only one left at Milly;
great new Mücke pieces (shoes by Phong Lai), available at the Mücke Open Studio happening this Sat!
A delivery of Limedrop Calypso pieces inspires a few sweet thoughts for the season's garden parties and races.
And aren't the hats great? A random find while looking for 'hats and flowers' to go with the outfits. Kate Bishop (from Bisbee, Arizona!) describes her pieces as 'elegantly eccentric', which is rather apt for Milly sometimes perhaps...

Voila! Some new Kuwaii, including the lovely handy slip (which also comes in black). The slip is featured in three of these photos but you can only really see it in the first (yes?), which is exactly the way it should be.
The blouse is a new favourite - it has a floaty full bat sleeve, and looks very fine worn loose as well. Its soft sheer feather-lightness can perhaps only be properly ah-ed over in person.
Also on the agenda (ah-genda!) this weekend:
