When we’re in a period of uncertainty where many businesses especially small local businesses are already seeing a negative effect. In my first Support Local Series I’ll be curating a short list of pieces to keep you feeling confident, looking good & motivated during this crazy time. Better yet you don’t need to leave your house to do so and at the same time you’ll be supporting a local business. It’s a win win.
Kristin Magrit Giant Check Sweater
Wrap yourself up in love & a big warm hug with this super soft knit made from merino wool. The green colour is a colour that will be trending all autumn & winter and looks just as great teamed with blue denim or sweats depending on your stay at home mood.
Perlu Rolling Stones Tee
Statement tees automatically add personality and edge to any outfit, they are the secret to that “model off duty” look (without being an actual model of course). My favourite at the moment is this leopard Rolling Stones tee from LA brand Daydreamer available from Leederville boutique Perlu. For a polished yet edgy look style with distressed straight leg denim, ankle boots & a leather jacket.
Bonnie & Clyde* Farrah Jean
The Farrah Jean is the perfect wide leg jean for wearing with comfort at home (or out & about in the future) & the cropped length is flattering with both flats or heels. Wear with ankle boots and knits when the weather cools. On another note Bonnie & Clyde just announced they are sadly closing their doors after being a wonderful local boutique in Mt Hawthorn so it’s a great way to support this small business to the end.
Bonnie & Clyde* Millie Dress
Colour boosts our mood and who doesn’t need a mood boost right now? This sunshine yellow slip dress will brighten your day and is super easy to style up and down. The yellow is a perfect match to a denim jacket or layer the Millie dress over a white tee or long sleeve top.

Let’s be honest you’ll be having more meals at home for a little while & for those that are still having to work at home then productivity needs to remain high so why not treat yourself to a fancy new teapot & small batch tea blend, it will taste like you’re in a fancy café instead of your lounge room.
Granite Lane Activity Pack
Keep your own little monsters entertained at home with this all inclusive activity pack from Granite Lane. It comes with 24 pages of activities & coloured markers so you’re all sorted in one handy box.
Lastly if you don’t have the means to support local by purchasing it’s completely understandable at a time like this. Why not engage with local boutiques, labels & brands via social media? Or share their posts, you never know what your reach could do to positively impact someone. Knowing we are all in this together can be powerful in feeling less isolated and reducing anxiety.
