I’m having the time of my life – this week we launched “Style is Eternal” at Avid Reader in Brisbane and last week in Sydney at Berkelouw Paddington Sydney. This is so much fun: I love books, bookshops, book readers and best of all is having your own book and talking to shiny people about it! Book people are good people.
And just when I couldn’t get more excited about bookshops (and how great it is to find good ones in other cities) there was the St Kilda library, who kindly invited me back for a third time to talk about my passion for fashion.
Plus: there have been a couple of radio interviews (3AW and Radio Adelaide) and newspapers, online magazines and blogs. And I also appeared on Channel 9’s “Mornings” show – you can see me talking about celebrity style here.
Are you ready for some highlights? Here are some pics –
A big article in the West Australian newspaper – thanks Susi for sending me the pic.
Some of the wonderful ladies who came to see me at Avid Reader – the whole audience was amazing, especially considering how hot and humid it was. I love this bookshop so much. Plus: Krissy Kneen live tweeted me! Achievement unlocked.

A table filled with copies of my book: Berkelouw in Paddington. So many great things about this bookshop and they have beautiful old style slanted wooden shelves upstairs.
Here I am demonstrating ways to wear scarves on stylish fashion blogger Nora. This pic is copyright Sydney Flapper. Here’s her terrific review of the Berkelouw event and my book.
My book featured in the Dymock’s catalogue alongside two of the most talented women in fashion!
And on display at Dymock’s Sydney – another really great old style bookshop with a mezzanine balcony cafe. Note that my book seems to be selling better than the other great title.
I caught the Future Beauty exhibition in Brisbane! Japanese Avant Garde fashion! Highly recommended and full of inspiration.
Gabbi at Dymock’s Chermside asked me what my favourite word was – I replied “momentum”. I’m feeling a lot of that at the moment.
Lots of books to sign at Kinokuniya! Amazing bookshop, a new favourite and everyone is so nice. I didn’t use the sharpie – have discovered an author truth: we carry pens we like to write and sign with. I’m glad I signed a lot of books because “Style is Eternal” is currently one of their best sellers!
Chatting about fashion at St Kilda library – where Cati created a wonderful display of vintage frocks and books and called me “fabulous”. Cati, I think you’re fabulous too.
Now, the book is available at good bookshops everywhere and of course at Circa – but if you’d like a signed copy here’s where to go:
– Dymock’s Sydney, Bondi Junction, Chermside and Brisbane
– Avid Reader, West End Brisbane
– Circa Vintage online and in the city salon, where I can personalise a copy for you. All web and phone orders are sent via Express Post and we post the same or next business day, but don’t leave it too late if you’d like one for Christmas!
