IF YOU'RE A BIRD.


Yesterday a new store opened their doors in Parkside, Adelaide called 'If You're A Bird'. We had the pleasure of visiting the girls before they launched and even helped set up spaces for the labels we represent. In between sanding and steaming we sat down with creator Lanie and asked her a few questions!

Where can we find 'If You're A Bird'?
So you can find my little store at 90b Glen Osmond Rd in Parkside just a few doors down from bar 9.


What labels do you stock?
At the moment I am stocking casper&pearl (of course!) see&ell, Pinclove, Rumour Has It, First Light The Label, Lioness and many more to come!

What was your inspiration for the decor?

My inspiration for the decor all came from this one wardrobe I found on Gumtree of all places! I got it for free from a lovely older couple and I just wanted to make it a bit of a centre piece (hence it now being bright purple). And in it I will be displaying different designers, different looks and other fun things in my 'wardrobe of the week'. It's my hope that people feel cosy and at home .

What made you decide to start your own boutique?

The idea for starting my own boutique kinda just happened. I've worked in retail for many years and always thought how much fun it would be to own my own store. One day my dear old dad asked if he invested in a business what should it be and we came up with the idea from there!

If you could choose a celebrity to walk into your doors who would it be?

One celebrity? Ryan Gosling! Haha though I don't see why he'd venture in.


Style icon?
Grace Kelly. She is the epitome of classic style and beauty.

Who is your 'If You're A Bird' customer?
The 'If You're A Bird' customer is someone who enjoys fashion, but takes it with a grain of salt and forms their own style based on what they love rather than what they are told to wear. They are the sort of person who will come in just for a chat, my doors are always open to friendly people.



Love from the La-La girls,
xx
