Common Ground opening night

common-ground-13common-ground-1-2 common-ground-5common-ground--2 common-ground-6common-ground-12 common-ground-8common-ground-2-2We were among the lucky ones who RSVPed quickly enough to Common Ground‘s opening night party. Previously located in the Many 6160 complex in Fremantle, Common Ground has now broken free of its confines and found itself a new home in the previous New Edition building on High St. And to celebrate they threw a party with 20% off all stock, live DJs AND a free lolly bag! What a bunch of legends. (I love Chico babies, who doesn’t?)

Common Ground is a collective of independent Western Australian streetwear brands and womenswear brands, as well as terrariums and art for your home. They even have a collection of highly sought after Mekel works, and we had the pleasure of bumping into the very talented Kelly (with her boo in pic number 5)! Common Ground showcase, support and springboard all the little brands in this fair city that are hoping to make it big. If you’re ever in Fremantle, I urge you to check out the store and see what the fuss is all about.

(Oh and what am I wearing? Darling, I thought you’d never ask…Gorman jumper, Saba leather skirt (similar), Christian Louboutin pumps, Freckle & Co earrings, Chanel handbag)

  1. Nice shoes!! They look very glam but also quite… vertical? haha 😉
    This shop looks like the kind of place I could spend a loooot of money in – how cool is it that Perth has all these awesome creative shops nowadays! xx

    • You’re right! They’re certainly not “work shoes”, no no…But I loooove them still, even though I can only last for a little over 1 hour on my poor little footsies! Some training is in order methinks! Makes me wonder how the likes of Gary Pepper and Tuula survive, particularly during Fashion Week! Do you reckon they have a little pair of ballet flats or (heaven forbid) Havaianas tucked into their handbags? Or perhaps they really are just steel-toed super humans…

      How do you do with heels? Better than me? 🙂

      • Hahaha that mental image of garypeppergirl in havianas is too good. I bet they get driven to the door and then they put the shoes on to walk in and sit down, then they change right after.

        I only have two heels heights in my shoe drobe: flats and 3 inches. Anything between looks silly on me. 3 inches is not high at all by heel standards but seeing as I’m already on the giraffe side of things. I’m fine with 3 inch but I doubt I’d be okay any higher. Anyway, I only have 5cm to play with before I’m taller than Pete! haha 🙂 xx

      • Nay you’re not a giraffe, you’re blessed with long gams 🙂 Own it!

        And hey, I don’t think a girl being taller than her guy to be a big drama! Think Pharrell x Helen, Jamie Cullum x Sophie Dahl – glorious couples!

        Ciao for now xx
