I flew to Sydney on Friday to have a little Champagne morning at our store Come As You Are in Paddington, to go through the new deliveries and workshop our winter wardrobes. It was so lovely to meet some of our customers and go through my favourite style options for the coming season.
The store was merchandised so beautifully and the stock simply magnificent! I took so many photos of the deliciously divine racks and shelves laden with decadent denim, heavenly knitwear, unique pieces and the coolest ever footwear options. It was a stylists dream and a customers haven!
I’ve always had a soft spot for our Paddington store. It used to be the old Scanlan & Theodore store many years ago (actually decades ago!). I always remember the beautiful courtyard at the back with autumn sun streaming through the high glass windows that backed onto the traditional heritage terraces. Our wholesale office is also upstairs so was great to check out Edwards Imports Sydney at the same time… It’s been a while. #babies.
Little pops of pink with white, black and grey… Those of you who know me, know that this is one of my top five favourite colour combinations! I just adore the velvet comeback. Mixing it with stretch sparkle leather, embroidered bombers and leopard fur? Oh yes please and then some…
Could this be any prettier? A little pop of poppy among an earthy leopard print, cream fur, tan leather and winter whites! Drooooooool.
Denim selection solid! This wall was heavenly with it’s sky blues, dove greys, silver glitter and dark embroidery. A few special items like a faux fur vest, buttery soft leather jackets and cashmere pieced together the most lust-worthy fashion options.
My girl Roxy Jacenko popped in for a visit, twice in two days Rox! Just love this fabulous woman.
I loved this section of the store. Such an eclectic display of interesting prints with a touch of blue, lemon and tan. Seriously, the selection is next level.
A fresh little pocket of distressed denim, light washed cottons and swede in soft pink, aqua and sunset shades… Ahhh, take me there!
My outfit consisted of J Brand Cropped Flares, a Joie top, Hunky Dory Velvet Blazer, Wittner Marlo Neoprene Ankle Boots and a Valentino Lock Shoulder bag. Outfit available in both Janine Edwards and Come As You Are Boutiques!
Ahhhh, just so cool. I could wear everything on this rack! Polk-a-dot shirting, silk star print dresses and tees, black leathers and denim. All mixed back with your basics and knit wear. I’ll take one of each thank you! And mix it all up in an epic at home wardrobe adventure.
Now, all these racks and shelves look so pretty, right? However I can see some of you thinking, woah… It could look a little daunting and overwhelming. How would I style it? What would work together? The reality is, that the store would be nothing with out the amazing team of stylists who work on the floor each day. Our girls are there to help you piece it all together, to help create looks that work for you, your shape, your style.
It’s all about curating your wardrobe. Whether you’re looking for a special individual item to work back with your staples, or chasing the full kit out, we’re here to assist!
Come As You Are is open daily from 10 am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 11 – 4 on Sundays. We plan to do another workshop soon, I will let you know so you can pop in for a visit and we can have a play!
