They were dressed in studs and leather and retro suits and little dresses, they arrived by foot, or van, or cab or bicycle, they laughed and drank and danced, they were designers, stylists, friends and customers and they were there to celebrate still being sexy and cool at end of another year at The Wrap Party.

The band rocked out and so did the shop (caution: drunk shoppers with credit cards!) Umbrellas were on standby thanks to some typical Melbourne surprise rain but luckily weren’t needed and the party went on until the wee hours (or until Will used bottles of vodka to bribe the remainders to go to bed…or the park-you know who you are)

It was a great night and Will and Letitia would like to thank all for coming down. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy happy happy New Year! Stay tuned for more radness, we will re-open for trading at Down Yonder on the 13th of January.

We are in love....

The best sort of love is one that that comes on fast, hard, and makes your stomach turn flip-flops in little baby butterflies of excitement. Does that all sound a bit cliche? Maybe. But it's spring time and all we want to do is fall in love!

Just in case you're wondering, our first major crush of the season goes out to Jessie Hill. She caught our eye a few months ago and we knew we had to have her. A bunch of her gorgeous silk dresses, tees and tank dresses just arrived, and it looks it's going to be true love 4EVA!!!

Friend of Mine AW10

Just because we always give you the first look and because we're generally fabulous, here is a sneak peek at FRIEND OF MINE AW10.

The collection is called Other Side of Love and is inspired by those epic rock 'n roll romances - think John & Yoko, Mick & Jerry Hall, and Kate & Pete (bless their sweet trashbag hearts!)

LOVING these new Karen Walker Sunnies .... Coming in store soon!

Yes please! xx

We're just going to go ahead and type it in capitals so you clearly understand that we're super excited ...

Worth screaming about, yes?

Not many words needed from us about this label (for once) as the clothes do the shouting for themselves. For more screaming check out this little tidbit one of our own wrote on Lifelounge

Check out Friend of Mine in NYLON MAG!
The cult New York magazine not only did a gorgeous little write up on the recently debuted Melbourne label, but also coordinated their very own shoot featuring the label's Opposites Attract collection.

Friend of Mine is available at Down Yonder and can be special ordered as we also happen to be BFFs for life with designer Teale Talbot. The second summer collection is also due any day now... Get in QUICK! xxx

As soon as new Melbourne label Friend of Mine debuted a few months back, we kept on getting crazy-eyed fashion addicts barraging us with queries for the next collection (seriously amazing fashion does tend to have that effect on some people...)

The wait is over..... welcome to YESTERDAY'S TOMORROW!

As with the last collection, Friend of Mine has dished up some seriously rad basics with a twist and an AMAZING shoe collection featuring the eponymous wedge heel. The label has also branched out in to a range of denim pieces.

.... all of the featured pieces are available at Down Yonder in the next week, along with many more. We have the broadest Friend of Mine selection out of any store in Australia, and can also do special orders. (just because we are friends of yours)

Here's a few shots of Dash & Will's latest tour shots from their Melbourne album launch.

This is Genevieve

(Sheer detailed Blouse)

There will be no debating this one - these shots from This is Genevieve's most recent collection are utterly gorgeous. We've just received these pictured pieces in to Down Yonder and can't wait for it to stop hailing (no joke!) so we can slip on some of this summery goodness.

(we have this both in plain black and in navy stripes)

This is just the first lot of many more pieces to come from the talented Australian designer Genevieve Er. 
(The perfect peachy keen sundress)

We are also able to do special orders for this label - so if anything takes your fancy that we don't have (the horror!) then we can certainly try to get it in for you. The things we do for you, huh?

We have baby girl-crushes on the very talented Dash & Will - skillful songwriters and performers that are making their home town of Melbourne proud.

The girls were recently featured in Fashion Journal wearing clothes from Down Yonder! We've been working our styling magic on the girls for their upcoming gigs and appearances on Nickelodeon TV. 

 Don't they look gorgeous? Check out their Myspace for touring dates by clicking here. We can't wait to see them in our threads on stage at Ding Dong tomorrow night!

Welcome to Shoe Heaven. Have you got the feet to make it through the Pearly Gates? Maybe you need a bit of a pedicure first, hmmm? 

Regardless of callouses, ingrown toenails, chipped nail polish and all other things gross, Australian shoe designer Tristan Blair is sure to make your feet look their very best. His divine handcrafted creations are known to grace the pages of Russh, Vogue and Harper's - and it isn't hard to see why.

Down Yonder is - wait for it - the sole stockist for TB shoes in Victoria. Yup - we've got the monopoly, baby! We have just had four lovely flat styles arrive in time for Summer.

Jewellery Luv

(One Luv)

Oh, Ms. Jewellery. Without you, we'd be lost for what to buy our friends at the last moment on (sometimes forgotten?) birthdays. Luckily, we've just had a huge new drop of jewellery from One Luv and Dervish.

(One Luv)

Dervish Jewellery make some gorgeous intricate pieces completely from hand! Get yourself a one-off necklace, ring or pair of earrings currently in stock.  


One Luv also produce the sweetest charm necklaces on an assortment of gold, silver and nickel chains. Some of the charms - such as the fan, rubic cube, sand-timer, compass and handcuffs - are working little mechanisms that make for fun presents. The best thing about One Luv is the price - these little sweethearts start from 30 bucks a pop. 

(One Luv)

Come Down Yonder to have a try of these styles and many more other newies. We'll even giftwrap them for you - not that you'll actually want to give them away!
