HANDS up who’s happy to see some of our favourite boutiques reopening their doors?
I know I am, and although we aren’t completely free to crowd the streets and shop ’til we drop, we are able to venture out for a little fashion fix or last-minute Mother’s Day gift.
Where to first? Fortunately, the Sunny Coast isn’t lacking in the style department.
We have fashion hubs from end to end, so if finding something fabulous is on your to-do list this weekend, here’s some hot spots worth a stop.
Noosa boasts some of the Coast’s most impressive designers. So, it’s no surprise you’ll find an abundance of exclusive boutiques there. Today, let’s head to Noosa Junction. First stop, The Travelling Kimono. Needing no introduction, these ethical advocates invite you step in and slow down. I guarantee you’ll fall in love with everything you lay eyes on and when you know it’s made with love, your swag is so much sweeter. Now slide a few doors down to discover Slow Cartel. There, you’ll find the unique and unusual. Expect colour and lots of it. And with sustainable fashion the only option on the menu, Slow Cartel is a feast for the eyes and the soul.
Buderim is a drawcard for many reasons, though it may not be top of your list for a shopping adventure. It should be because Buderim offers an impressive selection. Right in the heart, you’ll find Soul Diva. This boutique has impeccable taste, housing the likes of Sacha Drake and Binny among many other beautiful brands. And she’s not too bad at choosing friends either, surrounding herself with Yellow Oak Clothing & Homewares, Threads 4556, and Sunshine Coast staple Sedgwicks.
With all of these and more to discover, you’ll be sorry if you don’t stop in.
H & H Organic Knit at Meraki Thread Co.
Mooloolaba Wharf, since its makeover, has attracted some pretty cool characters in clothing.
As soon as you step in, find Meraki Thread Co. — the home of curated vintage, cult Aussie labels and an insanely cute kids collection. Next door, find Mikimi Resortwear filled wall-to-wall with hand-picked, homegrown, freshly sewn goodness that isn’t your average resort store.Then with a hop, skip and jump, you’re in Bedouin Traders, then Gingers Boutique.
You’ll have so much fun searching within these four doors, you’ll wonder why you hadn’t earlier.
Samsara Home at Woombye is always on my list of fashion destinations. It’s one of those wonderful places that has everything you could ever ask for, so be sure to swing by on your way through. And if you’re heading to Caloundra, Dan Scott Style is my pick.
With homewares, gifts and fabulous frocks, there’s something to suit every taste. Think classy, classic and unique.
