On A Whim

Just before Telstra Perth Fashion Festival kicked off I was super lucky to be invited to borrow an outfit from On A Whim. I’ve been blogging for over a year now and this kind of thing NEVER HAPPENS to me, so to say I was excited is a definite understatement. I went to visit Erin and Kate at the On A Whim studio in Leederville last week and thoroughly enjoyed my lunch break trying on all of their gorgeous clothes and chatting to the girls.

If you have never heard of On A Whim then do yourself a favour and check out their website, or even better go and visit their lovely space at Studio Bomba in Leederville. The two Perth girls behind the label, Erin and Kate, aim to create gorgeous (but wearable) garments with quality construction and beautiful fabrics. All of their pieces are designed and made in Perth which is pretty unusual and so wonderful. Erin told me that they really like to support local talent and often share ideas/solutions with their friends from other Perth based labels. 

The dress I borrowed was fully lined and 100% cotton (it even had pockets!!) so it was a total dream to wear. It was a little chilly the night I wore this outfit so I needed a jacket and some boots, (although I can definitely imagine this dress in summer with wedges and huge sun hat). I decided to whip out my amazing Capnmueller squid earrings as well, because if you can’t wear giant squids on your ears to a fashion show, when can you? I was thrilled when Zambesi designer Liz Findlay commented on them while I was swigging bubbles in the VIP tent (daaaahhhling)!
