light installations around Sydney Harbour and particularly the stunning
3d projections on to the Opera House.

Now for some very important news...Ladies, we have NEW SHOES!
Provensen Shoes, Sydney
Dip front ankle boot with leather upper and leather sole
Black pebbled leather $249
Tan pebbled leather $249
Navy pebbled leather $249
Faye has done a fabulous job on these!
They are a classic round toe, ankle boot but rather than
cutting you off at the ankle, Faye has dipped down the front
to slim down and lengthen your line.
She has also included some subtle seaming on the front
to visually minimize your foot in the rounded shape.
The leather is a medium weight but super soft pebbled leather.
The Navy and Tan feature brown tone soles and heels and
the Black are all black.
The side zip is a brushed metal finish for a subtle look.
Square Toe Lace Up with Leather and Mesh Upper and EVA Sole
I wrestled over the colours of these but this Green really
is the coolest!
I love the tonal sole and heel.
It's dark enough to brighten up dark tights and dark outfits
and also bright enough to mix with other brights.
The square toe give you more toe room for comfort and they
are extremely light weight so easy to wear all day long.
Lace up ankle boot with metal hardware
Leather upper and leather sole
These Western inspired Ankle Boots feature a leather covered
heel and subtle gold hardware.
The pointed toe is cunningly shaped for comfort,
giving you enough room for your toes whilst giving you a slim line.
Crepe Sole Leather Loafer
These Neon Dreams are my favourite!
Harking back to the must haves on the 90's, the Patrick Cox Wannabes
but with an edgy crepe sole and heel.
This is designer Faye Montalban's third year and third collection.
She is not one to rush things and Faye's Provensen label is a great
example of slow fashion.
So many designers seem to be selling out their brands and fast at the moment,
to anyone who's willing to pay the price.
It makes them lose their charm.
When she launched with her distinctive Desert Boots three years ago
she made many fans and the love has continued.
I posted some photos of these on Facebook on Friday night and it's been mayhem
Not only do they look totally cool, but they are SO comfortable!
Easy low and mid heels and all styles have a cosy padded footbed
making them a dream to walk in.
Provensen also size from 35 to 43 - amazing!
Provensen available now at Blonde Venus!
Angel Wang, Brisbane
Debut Jewellery Collection
Sterling Silver Combination One-Piece Star Choker with Long Drop Star Earrings
Sterling Silver Star Choker $154
Sterling Silver Long Drop Star Earrings $88
Angela Jhang graduated with a BFA in Fashion last year at QUT.
Her graduate collection entitled Angel Sword was inspired by 90's
Norwegian Black Metal culture.
The highly stylized graphics used in the culture inspired Angela's
brand logo which she incorporated into her collection in the form of heavy
To finish off the pieces for the runway, Angela designed a small but distinctive
jewellery collection which created such a response, she decided to launch them!
Her debut collection is just these 3 styles - so simple, yet so unique.
I love the tough, sexiness of the very 90's choker and long earrings
and the "one piece" has the same feeling but with a very cool
Angel Wang is available exclusively at Blonde Venus!
The Outpost Webstore is now LIVE!
Blonde Venus and The Outpost are your classic "bricks and mortar" retail stores.
They are both very much about the experience of the stores themselves.
Both boutiques and what they contain are like candy stores and there is nothing as good
as actually shopping in them.
Feeling, touching, trying, smelling, listening, reading and absorbing the energy.
The fruits of our passion create a unique experience to visit and have
become such a loved part of Brisbane.
There is no way that we can replicate this on-line but to help those of you that
live too far away, Matt has just launched a webstore for The Outpost.
The webstore is a small selection of what is actually available in the store
so, as always, if there is something that you are after, you can still call or
email us and we will organize it for you.
Take a peek and hope you enjoy it!
See you soon,
