Melbourne

Melbourne. Usually I try and spend a good week in Melbourne to do some sale shopping and catch up with friends. This trip we only had a few short days, of which were packed withe seeing my brothers and shopping with mum. Sorry to those I didn't see this time around! These pics are all from the hotel we stayed at. Love the view.
One day was completely devoted to wedding-related shopping with mum. Which was awesome. I tricked her into going to see The Dress, which got the seal of approval. Phew! Then next we dashed about town looking for shoes, mother-of-the-bride dresses, and fabric for wedding decorations. After a long day pounding the pavement, mum found a nice day dress, but it my sister (not even present!) that got the score of the day - as we found her her bridesmaid dress. Hope you like it when you try it on, CC!
Oh, yeah, and they're tearing down the back of the Myer building. I have to say that usually David Jones is a better department store than Myer, but, oh, how the tables have turned! Myer has had a face lift, is completely re-furbished inside and offered much better selections of product. And, I guess there's a brand new building to come in a year or so. Go Myer. DJ, pull your socks up.
Bye, bye, Melbourne! It was short, but sweet as ever! Next stop... Hong Kong!
