Bayside Bent

Last night Katie and I decided to have a wander around the Bayside boutiques in Frankston, for both our own enjoyment and, as always, to scan the crowds for any prominent peculiarities in the fashion fields. After finding our way quickly out of Trade Secret, where it was smelling suspiciously like someone had experienced a recent bowel excavation at a surprise moment, we recovered briefly with a de-caf lactose-free cappuccino at Gloria Jean's and sat in the window at a little table to watch the passing crowds.

We were, I might say, a little underwhelmed at the parade, which largely consisted of tracksuit pants, bogan t-shirts and mis-matched active wear, with a few dashings of senior ensembles in brighter hues and a guy robed in full black with hoodie, pushing a trolley full of suspicious looking packets.

Never fazed, Katie and I ventured further inside the renowned plaza, After a little browse in Wood, Metal & String, we stumbled across our first style bonanza! An uptown urban mum in a brushed cotton, whimsical owl shirt-dress that could have come straight from Etsy, teamed with neat Mary-Janes and over-sized black sunglasses. Plus a pixie blonde hair-do - gold!

Hunger called, and was appeased with an egg sushi and a rice paper roll (yum), before a quick browse in Smiggle, where we happened upon some rather surprising items - including, I kid you not, 'Fluffy Locker' in rainbow trim, placed strategically next to some other items that Katie will tell you about in her post. Caught on the run was a snappy young lady rocking a sheer black maxi-dress with thigh-high side split and a midriff burgandy top, merged artfully with some black Doc-Marten's and a beach-style wavy up-do.

A try-on session in Street-Wear fashions was surprisingly bountiful, I could have come home with an arm-load of garments, had I not been budget-aware in this pre-Christmas rush. The best thing was the shop assistant being welcoming to Katie and not ruffling a feather when she wanted to try on some dresses, whilst still in her man-clothes. I was happy to support his business in the purchase of a cute little denim shirt dress. So, all in all, the Bayside Bent tour was a night well spent!
