I went to a fashion event at Times Square, in Claremont, which is a rather upmarket suburb of Perth. Actually, it doesn’t get much more upmarket – it’s where Perth’s multi-millionaires and billionaires, go shopping and dining.
The show was an open-air show, on the roof top, under the stars. The atmosphere was just lovely. I sipped a bit of champagne, I ate some amazing garlic prawns, I got a front row seat, and chatted all night.
Times Square is a cluster of boutiques including Wayne Cooper, Aelkemi, Bettina Liano, Leona Edmiston, Breathless, Anna Thomas. For this show they were launching their Autumn Winter 2011 Collections.
These are a few looks from Aelkemi’s collection – I adored the purple fur, black sequins and the pleated dresses.
Anyway while I was walking back to my car, I strolled through the new Claremont Quarter Shopping Centre. It was late night shopping and the place was filled with shoppers.
I haden’t visited Claremont in a few years, and I could hardley recognise the place! There used to be a large dodgy car park right smack bang in the centre of the precinct, but now there is a very pretty-looking, 5 storey shopping centre there… it looked great!
And then it occured to me that I needed to buy some groceries, and that the shops were open, so what the heck, in I went. What was very amusing was that I was dressed in a bright red, mini-length, ruffle-shoulder, cocktail dress, and I DIDN’T FEEL OUT OF PLACE! There were some very well dressed people there, doing their weekly grocery shopping in head to toe designer clothing!
So I thought I’d try to capture the hilarity of the moment.
I stood in front of the Coles supermarket, in front of the oranges and tomatoes, and snapped away at myself, making sure I photographed the fruit behind me.
I felt like such a dweeb! A blogging dweeb no less!
