Yesterday I had a meeting in the city and wasn’t due at work for awhile so I decided to fit in some sneaky shopping. I very rarely go into the Sydney CBD so I thought it would be a good opportunity to check out the relatively new Kitten D’Amour shop. I first discovered Kitten D’Amour a number of years ago while on holidays in Queensland. I’d never seen anything like it before; the designs were simply exquisite and out of this world. I seriously wanted to own the whole shop. My mother in law kindly bought me two beautiful pieces and I still wear them frequently to this day. You can see my post on that outfit here. That holiday reminds me of happier times; my mother in law used to be my best friend and now the relationship has completely broken down. It breaks my heart every day and is a huge part of why I’ve felt so depressed in recent times. Anyway, back to the shopping. Since then I’ve loved Kitten D’Amour and maintained a moderate interest in their website but they never had a store in Sydney…and now they do! I love so much about the clothes; one of my favourite random aspects is the fact they use beautiful velvet ribbon on just about everything. I made one purchase which is the top featured in the first picture. I wanted to buy more but to be honest the pieces are rather expensive. The top I bought was 50% off so they do have some good sales. Here are few of my favourite looks from the current collection. I notice some of the pictures were taken around Sydney city; it’s cool to be able to recognise the locations in a photoshoot.
My absolute favourite is this piece here, the High Society Opera Dress. I tried it on in the store today and fell in love. It is my dream dress; so unique, a class of its own and the most beautiful I’ve seen. I didn’t have the money but I will be saving up and returning for this treasure.
