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:

A quick peek at our new Livia Arena dress, which has an adorable internal collar, sweet buttons at the back, and comes complete with its own little slip skirt... And a few recent arrivals from Alexi Freeman... all featuring the season's beautiful chain print, which is a subtle graphic rendition of the actual chain work that composes this gown.
Milly Sleeping now has the grey marle mesh-back jersey singlet with charcoal print, and the the black singlet dress and black gather skirt, both with the light grey print. These (and the fantastic foil tees) are all printed by hand, resulting in natural variations of tone and placement, which means that no two pieces are quite the same.
