Lick Clothing

April 21, 2010

For this post, I am taking a more personal approach (which I usually try to avoid). BUT- after my attention was directed to this ‘review‘ on Lick Clothing- I felt I should probably provide a proper and more personal review of the store.

The statement was made that “some clothes were way over priced as such and the same product but better quality would easily be bought in other stores such as “cotton on” or “mink pink”.”

While this person has the right to his or her opinion, I highly disagree with this statement. Cotton On is a decent store where I buy basics from, however the style they produce does not really overlap with the style stocked at Lick Clothing. As for the clothing being over priced- on the contrary Mary. I have never been more satisfied with the prices from Lick. I believe that in the majority of small businesses, designer labeled tops may cost up to $60. Today however, I walked in and managed to find a few tops under $40 and on occasion, I have bought skirts for $35.

They stock more than clothes too! They have the quirkiest shoes to offer along with some unique accessories such as necklaces and brooches. They always promote local music and artists which more people need to do. And don’t get me started on the people that work there- they are always friendly with a smile and only too happy to help you out.

For all those of you in Perth, or will be visiting Perth soon- I highly suggest you all to visit Lick Clothing and help support this adorable small business and keep it going!

If you’re curious about the art exhibitions they’ve held in the past, all details about the artists and musicians they have supported are available on their website.

Perth Street Lookbook

April 18, 2010

This is the first of many evidences of me being a creepy person on the street. On the way to the Huge Vintage Sale in North Perth, I realised I’m gonna stalk more people on the street, take a photo of them and put them up here for all people to see. It’s to show people that Perth style isn’t as derro/bogan as people think. For the non-Australian readers, what I’m trying to say is that despite Perth being a small city in a massive state, we still got style!

So enjoy the small amount of photos for now, but I hope it will build up quickly.
