Are you in Melbourne, with a penchant for tweed and vintage bikes?
Ambigious Horse presents the inaugural Tweed Ride as part of the Bicycle Film Festival on November 29.
We love it all the way from Sydney.

Anyhoo, there have been a few Etsy updates that I've neglected to post here, but we were having a relatively decent run of sales, so I guess I got a little cocky and didn't bother. Plus I'm a working lady. So's Dear Golden, I hear you say, or she was anyway, and she still manages to upload a gazillion listings every day plus blog posts and barely breaks a sweat. Well we're only human, whereas she's clearly tapping into some Jedi force that keeps her productivity at frighteningly high levels. Impressive. But Abs finished her PhD so I'm going to count that as a win. I have 6 weeks of work to go - preemptive hurrah. In photography news I got a new 35mm prime lens that I'm itching to bust out, we scored a new dress form, and have a giant wad of things to shoot and add to the store. All in good time, my friends. All in good time. I am not even going to proof read this rambling blog entry. Til next time...

In between messing around with my stats n'graphs, the boif and I have been taking little trips around the country. This morning we headed out to Canowindra for the annual swap meet at the showgrounds. There wasn't anything terribly exciting there, but it was great to look at all the weird stuff for sale. We learnt all about the different types of local honey, and found a great enamel kettle.
My favourite find of the day was this pimped up billy cart. How awesome would it be to take this little princess for a spin down a grassy hill? I love the floral vinyl seat covers and sword inspired steering device.
But sadly, I was only able to take a photo of the billy cart and its clapped out friend. But what I did puchase this week was this wonderful homemade limegreen wool cable jumper. Is it possible to even imagine a better colour for such a sweater?
I sat for a long time in the sun drinking my tea from a panda mug before I realised, no. It's just not possible.

Our absence can be explained by Abs's frequent thesis-related gallivanting across country and southern hemisphere, and my job. But we're back and the next update will be all about more dresses, and maybe some shoes. Good times!

I do like a bit of Audrey Tatou mixed in Jean-Pierre Jeunet stylings, but I found it a bit hard not to crack a laugh during this. It's beautiful and evocative and all, but I guess I'm not in the target market for high end perfume and the perfectly chiselled dude in the tight man-shirt smelling her shoulders and stuff. I'm still trying to figure out what she was smelling while she was nude in the overnight sleeper cabin.
Gosh I like her hair though!

Gadzooks! Check out dear Sam, handsome sunovagun that he is, featured in The Sartorialist.
Once you've marveled at his photogenics, head on over to his blog and gaze at his beautiful photographic works.
Meanwhile, Pony's chalk animation music video was blogged by Kanye!

You may also be aware that I'm a fan of craft. Non-sequitor this is not, because these two glorious worlds have collided.
Check out the amazing miniature knitting that was created for the movie:
Who in heck knits that small?

Been house hunting like crazy.
While on a break, dropped in at Barmuda for some vanilla rice and berries. Verdict: delicious! I hear that Barmuda is run by the same dudes who run Oscillate Wildly, which I've been meaning to try, if time would ever permit. And I'm not a coffee drinker, but my homies gave the Barmuda coffee four thumbs up, should anyone be on the lookout for decent coffee in Newtown and Campos is chockers, like it always is.
Would love to find a Sydney cafe that is as snobby about tea as it is about coffee. Any tips, let me know.
P.S. Abs and I are aware of our shop absence. Some stuff is going down and we're working on it. We have awesome stuff coming out of our ears and there is a slight bottle neck when it comes to listing them, but stuff is happening, rest assured.

Marais shoes come courtesy of a couple of stylish young whippersnappers from NY. Super cute and stylish but cheeeeeep.
These puppies aren't available to buy until May, but my gosh they're cute. And well-priced. Maybe international shipping might render them otherwise. I'm not gonna think about that right now.

Just dropping in today - Abs and I are both busy with our other lives, although the store, she runneth, while my Google Reader overfloweth.
Still, I found time to add Style Rookie to my reading list, a fashion blog written by this incredibly cool and precocious twelve year old, yes, twelve year old. You guys are probably all over it, but I only just discovered her. She has a really sophisticated and adventurous sense of style with her cute bob and oversized shades. At her age I was wearing paint splotched tracksuit jumpers and the only fashionable things I yearned for were Reebok pumps and Hypercolour t-shirts.
