Suburbia Style

5 Nov

No matter where you live, most suburbs have a nearby store that is your 'go to' for that last minute gift or outfit…. should you have “nothing to wear!!”.

I grew up in Guildford and back then, my Saturdays would entail working all morning at a local cafe and then heading to The Swan Valley Boutique to check out some gorgeous clothes to spend my earnings on!

The Swan Valley boutique was a small white house, filled with room after room of beautiful clothing and accessories which appealed to the polo and race going women who would shop there.

I would mostly dream when sorting through the beautiful garments but my mum would often purchase something fabulous to wear to a special occasion.

Whilst the Swan Valley Boutique no longer remains in that little white house I have since found many boutiques that stock some labels that I adore.

In recent times, I've stumbled across Sorella Store in Alfred Cove.

Set back off Canning Highway, this store is a gem for locals and I love seeing a mix of local designers together with some international labels.

Sunday just gone, Sorella store celebrated it's 3rd birthday and it was fantastic to head in for a fix of fashion for the upcoming party season!

Occupying two rooms, Sorella has a mix of fashion, footwear, accessories and cosmetics… Just what you need when running short of time and inspiration before heading out for the night!!
A rainy Sunday at Sorella Store and sipping on birthday champagne I found myself falling in love with some Manning Cartell, Shona Joy, House of Harlow and more… great way to spend some time after a long Sunday lunch!
If you are local to Alfred Cove, then head into Sorella Store, if not… Plan an outing or find yourself one of the many fantastic boutiques about town!
(Some other great boutiques to find…Woven & Willow, Et Seq, Shop 28).
