Loving Oobi and fond memories of childhood
On our first trip to Perth, I found the most divine little dresses made out of hand-printed apple and cherry fabric. This was my introduction to the gorgeousness of Oobi. I bought a couple of the dresses on sale (Bubba G is yet to grow into them) because they reminded me of my favourite dresses from toddlerhood. I spent a few years in Malaysia as a toddler and I had the most beautiful clothes. My absolute favourite was a white dress with strawberries on it and a bone coloured nightie with red dots on the sleeves. Mum loves telling the story of me ‘standing at the cupboard and demanding what I wanted to wear’ from the age of 15 months. I got really upset if I couldn’t wear my outfit of choice too! I remember wanting to wear that beautiful nightie with the red polka dot sleeves (and red is my favourite colour to this day).
I recently bought Bubba G an Oobie wide brimmed hat. It was red with white dots (how could I resist)? Sadly it has been lost. However, thanks to Facebook, I found out about the Oobie outlet store in Zetland. I went there yesterday to buy Bubba G some new hats and I also found a gorgeous hooded coat, an umbrella (both of which Bubba G is currently obsessed with) and a lovely little kit to make necklaces. I resisted buying any more dresses because Bubba G has three cupboards full of delicious dresses and all she wants to wear is hoodies (maybe it’s karma)?
Here are some photos of Bubba G in her new Oobi kit….
With love, light and appreciation
