Last week, amongst the craze of sales and my obsession with finding the perfect everyday black bag (still eluding me), stood a shining little beacon in the city. A rather benign looking flight of stairs opens up to BAM brands, boasting a collection of lovely fashion wares lined up and waiting to be stirred.
[Milk from a Thistle stallion print dress]Invited by Mark and made welcome by the warm BAM crew, I was excited to see the Milk from a Thistle stallion print up close and personal, but hadn't imagined all the other labels I would fall head over heels for.
The new foxy prints from Milk from a Thistle should have been a clear give away of the good news to come. These shorts were definitely a favourite of mine.
[Milk from a Thistle fox print shorts]My eyes darted around the room in a frenzy, not knowing where to land, like a well spun wheel of fortune. Today the bankruptsy slat had nothing to do with bad luck and everything to do with how I could get away with 'one of everything please'.

For the first time, I saw a wonderfully even collection of wallets, shoes and clothings for the Men as well as the swimwear and clothing for women. Amongst my favourites were melbourne label Wet & Wendy. Hailing from a state that knows about the rain, they embrace it, going so far as to try and change our mind about it. I'm convinced that in a little red rainproof Wet & Wendy bolero/cape and frilly umbrella, the big bad wolf couldn't get me, nor could bad weather blues. Don't worry boys, they'll keep you away from the man flu too.
For when the rain eventually passes, these Amore & Sovete swimmers are a kaleidoscopic dream. I've always been picky with swimwear but with all the gorgeous prints, shapes and frills ranging from memories of wading in the kids pool all the way to black and white movies glamour, I could not turn away.
While we're dreaming of summer, I'll say yes to a little slice of floaty Chip Chop heaven too? The cute sailor theme, summer sorbet colours and full length rompers looked so comfortable the slip into for an easy outfit that looked like a lot more effort than it was. There was so much heaven to explore and right about now you're probably wondering if I have decided to neglect the aforementioned boys?
After celebrating Mr Mo.'s birthday and our first wedding anniversary, I know well enough to not do that, so there's another post coming with all my pics for the Man. Maybe this last sexy number should have gone in the next post too huh? So gorgeous to look at.
A big thank you to Mark and the BAM crew for inviting me in and turning a blind eye as I clicked away, hung clothing on window panes and drooled.
So come on guys, which of these is on your hit list next?
wants one of everything please
