The result of our fun day shooting down at Rye.
Some people are able to pull off driving a Combi and look cool. I am definitely not one of those people! I picked up the trusty ‘Mango’ from Hire a Kombi and headed down to Rye front beach to take some shots of our new summer collection.
I had recruited my gorgeous friend (and hairdresser) Yianni Drakoulis (aka John) as out male model. We were going for the dapper boho look and he pulled it off perfectly.
We engaged a super star team of stylists and the amazing Nicole Corbett as our photographer. These photos are not taken by her. Her amazing photos will be on my next post.
With our gorgeous new sandals and heels in store and our new men’s range due within the next few weeks we thought that a launch breakfast was in order. We teamed up with the amazing Combi, Finn Cold Pressed juices and Pana Chocolate to feed our quests.
Thank you to the beautiful and talented Liz McLeish from Street Smith for taking all of these gorgeous snaps!
The gorgeous Sammy Veall from Yoga213 came to tell us her inspirational story and managed to get all of our guests onto their knees for a painful yoga pose.

Bring on summer!
It is really exciting to have Sam Wines as part of the Bared team. It is very handy that he happens to be a model and a great one at that. Sam managed to put together this incredible shoot within a few days. Thank you to our superstar stylist Carlos Mangubat, the amazing hair and makeup by stylist Deborah Brider and the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you Nicole Corbett for your amazing photos!
Some fun behind the scenes.
We are in the middle of sampling some really exciting new Men’s styles to add to our range. We can’t wait to sign them off and get them on some feet.
Some behind the scenes.
My Beautiful family tagged along. I am not sure about the runners with jeans look that Gilbert is sporting but he says that they make him run extra fast.
A fun day and a good warm up to our gorgeous Men’s shoot. After a huge Blog post drought watch this space an exciting one is on its way.
We decided that it was about time to show off our gorgeous new shop and we thought that a health and wellness morning that celebrated all things good for you was the way to go. I was so excited when the ever energetic nutritionist and health promoter Lola Berry agreed to come and say a few words. Here are some pics of the day.
Mish Lilley from Mish Delish couldn’t have matched her bag and nails any better to our emerald green ‘Toucan’ sandal.
A big thankyou to the beautiful Sarah Edgar and Abbey Thomas from AMPR. These girls are amazing!
Thanks to Monique and Jack from Activeats and Gemma from Smoothboy for the delicious refreshments.
A final thankyou to Lisa Frieling Photography you are a gem.
Hurry up summer!!
Long time no post. We have been very busy moving and settling in to our gorgeous new store.
The succulent wall finally came together and looks pretty cool even if I do say so myself.
The launch of our first men’s range and our new website are only a few weeks away so we decided to take a few photos. Alex and I couldn’t think of two guys better suited to model our men’s range than Nick her partner and Andrew my reluctant husband but I think that they scrubbed up alright. Georgia was her usual amazing self!
We can’t wait to introduce the men of Melbourne to Bared. With seven different styles arriving, including desert boots, boat shoes, loafers and brogues we think that we have something for everyone. Not long to wait now.
We have been bursting at the seems in our Armadale store for some time. A shipping container in our carpark has given us a bit more room but with our Men’s range being launched in October we had to find a much bigger store.
The iconic Granny’s antique shop almost directly opposite our store was the obvious choice. The fun has begun!
A new store means some fun new projects. My wonderful father in law has helped out with my vertical garden. It is now all planted it just has to stay alive so that I can insert it into the door in 8 weeks time.
We needed some models in a hurry to shoot our mens samples so Andrew (my husband) and Alex’s partner Nick were called in for a Sunday morning shoot. It was family affair with our superdog Frankie, my little fairy Eliza and cool skater boy Gilbert all in on the action.
We have an exciting few months ahead at Bared. Keep checking in for updates.

Lately we have been having quite a few blogger sharing posts of themselves wearing Bared.
I think it’s a shame when bloggers do all these great posts and unless you are following them you may miss the opportunity to see them. I have listed below some recent bloggers who have featured Bared in their styled posts. Please follow through their links and check out their blogs to see the rest of their work.
