Combining a love of being a barfly with love for a new sartorial find, I’ll be pairing a fabulous drink from a Melbourne bar with a fashion item inspired by the concoction.
Drink This: 2009 Chardonnay by Carolina Wine. Now that the sun has finally come out in Melbourne (with vivid blue skies in between tropical downpours) sometimes you don’t want to be cooped up in a dingy bar. I’m not usually a Chardonnay drinker but this light, zesty tipple seems bound for drinking while lounging around on green grass. Plus the whimsical stories to be read on the arty label will spark cloud-watching and daydreams.
Dress in That: Perfect for a picnic, the polo or just hanging out at a backyard soiree in the sunshine, this ‘Caroline Butterfly dress’ ($109.95) by Sass will enrobe you in a flurry of butterflies.
