Calypso!

More garments from Limedrop's fancy fruity flowery new collection, Calypso. What may not come across is that the the lovely white fabric is a soft cotton with a fantastic 'burn-out' pineapple motif, and the black fabric is quite weighty and stretchy, with wave-like ribs - it has real bounce and life to it!

Don't forget, you can receive a 15 or 20% discount off the price of all of these pieces if you know about our current S/S 11/12 subscriber offer!

Fashion Week is now officially over but a few exhibitions spill into this week, including the RMIT Student Exhibition at No Vacancy Gallery, which is highly recommended based on the calibre of the work presented in Saturday night's student runways.

Subscriber offer!

It's been a busy week, with delightful deliveries to welcome in ... Milly Sleeping now has new pieces by Limedrop, Livia Arena and Lui Hon (to slot in along side the recently arrived garments by ffiXXed and Romance Was Born).

With our Winter sale winding down, it's time to introduce our S/S 11/12 subscriber offer, which is a simple series of discounts for Milly Sleeping's followers and friends.

If you've signed up to our mailing list, or keep tabs with Milly via Twitter or Facebook, you're entitled to a 15% discount on your first purchase when choosing from incoming garments and accessories, and 20% off all second, third and any subsequent purchases.

Pop-ups

Tonight (Tuesday night!), the Mücke Spring/Summer 11/12 collection will be launched at a new pop-up shop, at 173 Lygon Street, East Brunswick (between 6 & 8pm). The store will be open for two weeks (Wed - Fri: 10am - 6pm; Sat - Sun: 10am - 4pm) and will showcase new Mücke shirtdresses, tops, skirts and half-skirts, along side garments by knit whiz Wendy Voon, and Phong Chi Lai handcrafts.

We made a quick visit to see a very busy Ellie Mücke last week, at the Premiere Trade Fair inside Carlton's Exhibition Buildings. Ellie was invited to set-up a small studio space there, which she allowed us to take a few sneaky snaps of. Thanks Ellie!

Unique Mücke garments from this collection will be available at Milly Sleeping soon.
