Glam gals on the go

A personal shopping tour with Sydney's local 'it' girl and style guru? I love my job!! I knew my day with Tali Shine, author of The Glam Girls' Guide to Shopping in Sydney, would be fun but this was ridiculous! We completely forgot about the cameras as we were just two girlfriends running all over town looking at clothes, shoes and make-up. But trust me, Tali is so much more than just a pretty face!

Tali designed her cosmetics line – Tali by Tali Shine– for girls on the go, products that not only travel well but evoke the colors and scents of exotic worldwide destinations. Needless to say, this had my name written all over it and so we began our tour at her make-up counter at David Jones department store. Which, by the way, also has a spectacular food court that you must check out -it's a destination in itself and a perfect place to refuel for more shopping.
One of my favorite stops was The Diva's Closet, owned by Sydney's vintage queen Regina Evans - who is anything but a diva, by the way! Warm and vivacious, she opened her store and let us play dress up through the decades. Topped off with hot chocolate and cookies, it was an ideal afternoon. Despite the fact that I was working, shooting Signature Style for Santa Fe Films, I somehow managed to bring home a few gorgeous souvenirs!
