Lady Melbourne in Sosume for LMFF

Over the weekend I was part of a panel to speak at LMFF on blogging, fashion and the internet. It was a great discussion with some really interesting questions from the audience and I got a chance to meet some my readers which was lovely.

My outfit comes with a little story however...

At the Oak off Chapel party a little while back I met Melbourne man Alex Trimmer behind the label Sosume. After chatting to him and falling in love with this jacket I was over the moon when I found out that the crew at Bam Brands wanted to lend it to me to wear this week.

Off to their showroom I went to chat about the labels they represent and find out everything I needed to know about Sosume. Like the fact that there are only 4 of these pure wool tux jackets available to buy in Australia.

I was greeted however by Murphy the dog and I think perhaps it was love at first sight. Founder of Bam Justin told me that he rescued Murphy from Venice Beach while he was living in LA and couldn't bear to part with him when the time came to move back to Melbourne.
Any showroom where a dog is welcome has my heart and my vote, it reminded me of being in Paris where people take their dogs, well, every where with them.
So that is how I ended up wearing Sosume yesterday, I couldn't help but share the story with you all because it's not often there is a cute story behind the clothes I wear!

Jacket: Sosume
Silk blouse: Vintage
Skirt: Pierre Cardin
Heels: Verali
Bag: Sirrico

As much as I love that jacket if I had to choose I'd take that gorgeous dog.

The puppy dog is a gorgeous thing, I would hate not having my dog.

So cute! I love dogs so much, I can't wait til I live somewhere I can actually have one! I know what you mean about Paris, and Berlin is the same - dogs just go wherever people go. It's a bit weird at first, but they're so well behaved! Ah, I could go on and on about dogs for awhile, but that might be enough for a fashion blog, what do you think? Okay stopping now.
