Treasure Hunt!

For those of you who have read my previous post, French Chic with Repetto, I am mad about Repetto shoes and would do anything to get my hands on a new pair. After doing a Google search of stockists in Melbourne, I finally found my lost treasure! 

Nestled amongst some of the most stylish boutiques along Little Collins Street, Melbourne, there lies the hidden treasure I had been looking for some time now. Treasurette

Treasurette is a boutique which specialises in high-end luxury labels, both international and contemporary, some of which include: Repetto, Aperlai, Givenchy, Maison Martin Margiela, Finsk, House of Harlow 1960 and Vassilisa. 




  


 Business owners, Alice and Deborah, named the boutique Treasurette after the original space for the boutique, which was situated near Treasury gardens! Their style motto is "Treasurette is inspired by the love for art, fashion and style." 

 


I made arrangements prior to my visit with the co-owner of Treasurette, Alice. Alice was very welcoming and offered me to visit one hour prior to the regular opening time, so that I could browse and pretty much have the entire boutique all to myself. I felt like a VIP!



When I arrived, I started trying on almost the entire range of Repetto shoes, both ballet flats and heels. I loved every pair that I tried on and remarked jokingly that I would like one of each style...please!!


 




 
 There I was, surrounded by a sea of shoes, almost drowning! I was in shoe heaven and savoured every moment. 



 Next was Aperlai, Paris, a line of shoes created by designer Alessandra Lanvin. I have never tried on such amazingly stunning shoes in my life! I will be definitely be saving up for a pair!! Apparently Alessandra consults a podiatrist during the design process in order to ensure that the foot's health is not compromised. At 10cm in height, the shoes were extremely comfortable and I could walk in them with no issues. Very impressive! I felt like I belonged on the red carpet!





So, my overall experience at Treasurette was fabulous. Alice was extremely helpful and knowledgable, offering advice on the correct fit of each shoe I tried on. I was introduced to some fabulous high-end designers, some of which I had only every seen gracing the pages of Vogue and the like, quenching my thirst for new style discoveries. 



Next time you make a trip into the city, make sure you pay a visit to Treasurette. You'll be hooked just like I am. Four pairs later...

Yours in style,
