destination perth: varga girl
Proper boutiques! They still exist and they're fun to shop in. Online has its uses, but when you need the perfect jeans/dress that fits/instant present there's nothing like bricks & mortar done properly. In case you thought Perth has nothing to offer I'm going to remind you of/introduce you to some of my favourites...
Varga Girl in Leederville is Perth's destination for Scandi-cool and clean-cut-boho (lots of By Malene Birger and easy draped things peppered with embellishment), with labels spanning from indie Kuwaii to powerhouse Missoni. Find homewares, menswear, Converse and heaps of jewellery (including CapnMueller!) scattered amongst womenswear in an airy, yet inviting, space - the Varga Girls have just redone their vm for spring and the central bench installation is a winner (not to mention the Hills Hoist!).
A perfect time to pay a visit is TONIGHT as the City of Vincent are putting on a free fashion event, with live mannis in shop windows, a local fashion runway and pop up designer stalls. Constellations is all go from 5pm.
