Sunglasses: c/o New Look
During our trip to Australia, we flew from Perth to Melbourne for a couple of days right in the city. We stayed in an Airbnb in Fitzroy which is about a 20 minute walk from the CBD and is full of independent restaurants, bars, coffee shops and clothes stores - it's a little like the Shoreditch of Melbourne.
As we only had a couple of days, we spent most of our time wandering around the city, having brunch, stopping for coffee and then going out for drinks and dinner - which is pretty much my favourite thing to do, so it suited me fine.
If you're staying in Fitzroy, go to Brunswick Street for shopping (Assembly Label and Nique were my favourites) and dinner (we went to Village People for Vietnamese, Naked in the Sky for rooftop tapas and Transformer for incredible vegetarian). Make time for Gertrude Street as well for brunch (try the Donkey Wine Store and Cafe) and wine bars (Marion was our favourite).
