New Stockist: With Love Bree-Lacey
Posted on December 20 2018
I moved to beautiful coastal Newcastle (Australia) over 4 years ago now from Victoria and I just love this city! One of my favourite shops is owned by my friend Bree who owns her namesake boutique, With Love Bree-Lacy in Newcastle City and just a stones throw from the beautiful beaches.
It just so happens that With Love Bree-Lacey are one of our new stockists for the Sugar Rush collection so we asked Bree a few questions to get to know her and her pretty little shop better :)
Tell us about With Love Bree Lacey, where are you located and how did you start?
We are a Little Vintage inspired Boutique at 161 Hunter Street in the Newcastle Mall. We started off doing markets with our own locally made clothing label and have slowly blossomed into a whole shop full of pretty things. We still make our own label in store and we focus on locally made and designed collections however we now curate a range of vintage reproduction labels from around the world. In our little boutique you will find everything you need to complete your vintage look from head to toe.
Tell us about your team, we want to know you 😊
Currently our team is made up of Myself (Bree-Lacey) and my beautiful Mama Michele. We both love the pretty feminine styles of the 1950's and are a bit addicted to shoes, as you might guess there is an ever growing range of shoes available in store. On given day you will find one or both of us in store usually hiding in the back corner behind a sewing machine. A pretty singer heritage of course 😘
What is the best thing about owning your own store?
Oh my, tricky question. I think in many ways curating the collections we have in store is the best thing. I get so excited about all the pretties we bring in and frequently add an extra piece to the order so I can add it to my wardrobe.
What sort of things can we find at With Love, Bree Lacey?
Honestly I think I could describe us as a tiny vintage themed department store, we have a little children's wear corner with lots of beautiful handmade pieces, a small collection of mens wear - mostly tee's from monsterthreads and some dapper accessories we also a little range of home & giftwear. In the ladies departments we have gorgeous lingerie from Newcastle made label Desvalido alongside hosiery (a vintage wardrobe isn't complete without back seamed stockings), a cabinet of hair styling goodies and lipsticks in four classic colours. Then of course there's a beautiful range of shoes and, most importantly of all , a curated range of vintage inspired clothing to get you from casual day wear right through to evening wear. We stock House of Foxy, Collectif, Hell bunny and are so excited to add Sarsparilly to our range. Finally we have our in house designs which we can make to order.
What is your favourite piece from the Sugar Rush Collection?
Oh thats not fair, I love everything. I do have my heart set on nabbing one of thepastel blue biker jackets for myself though.
Presently its a tie between salted caramel popcorn and straight up chocolate.
