Melbourne | 3 of 3

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

We spent a few days hanging out in Fitzroy, a funky and gritty neighborhood of Melbourne, because we loved it so much. This place was lined with cool shops and one-of-a-kind restaurants and cafes, each one designed so well. It was also full of young people with modern-vintage style, so it was a good place to people-watch and make you want to change your entire wardrobe. We visited a handmade artist's market on the weekend and took way too many photos of graffiti because it was all so good. This is when I decided that if I ever open a shop or restaurant, I'm coming to Melbourne to get inspiration. Australians have great taste. 

The next post is our last post from Australia and it's a street fashion post!

We were lucky to be in the area for the Rose Street Artist's Market where around 100 local artists and designers sell some pretty neat things journals, jewelry, and home decor pieces. 
We had dinner at the Little Creatures Dining Hall... one of the coolest restaurants ever. They brew their own beer, make delicious food with good ingredients, and have a big ol' warehouse-style dining room. 
Picking herbs from the restaurant's window boxes on the street. 
Ready to go picnic baskets! Such a good idea! Genius restaurant.

  9. I stumbled upon your blog while searching for something else and discovered you were just here in Melbourne. You've got some great shots there, some really nice framing. It's always good to see your 'hood through other people's eyes I think.
    Enjoy your travels!
