I dropped by to gaze wistfully at this dress from Ellery Fall '11, a piece of sparkling perfection with sleeves of fairy stardust.
Unspeakably discounted, I think it would certainly have made its way into my wardrobe if the sleeves, which were stylishly lengthy on a 6ft model, hadn't just been a touch too long on a shorty like me.

While in the area, I stopped by Limedrop's concept store at GPO for the AW'12 The Adventure collection.
Evidently themed around the concept of "adventure", the store is enticingly Indiana Jones-meets-the Rose of Lima; beautifully accented with antiquities, Mexican rugs, books, suitcases and other travel-related tchotchke that lend an air of the exotic.

One half of the Limedrop designer duo, Clea Garrick was kind enough to let me photograph her while I was there, so I could capture the effect of her dreamy AW12 Starsky print dress with that vibrant Mexican couch throw.
Limedrop won't be in this lovely spot forever, so make sure you "drop" in while you have the chance...
