Daisy's thoughts xxx

hello there to all of our lovely readers. My name is Daisy, dais for short- and as you all clearly know this is the Tiger and Goat blog. Finally there is a space for us to post all of our inspirations and aspirations for the coming future. every so often when i'm working, ill have a little play around, letting you in on the scandalous life of a shop dweller.
Well after the grand opening of our baby Tiger and Goat, we are well underway preparing for the chilly winter months that are gaining on us quickly. even coming into the winter it is still a fantastic opportunity to get to know what it is that i'm getting myself into. Being surrounded by all of the amazing labels we have in stock like life with bird, bul and my personal favourite blank NY! on a more serious note i now have zippo cash to spend because it is all being spent on the items of clothing in the shop that are just to die for.

Unlike other unique boutiques, Tiger and Goat have recently started to stock beautiful home wares handmade by Queen Mab. Queen Mab is a unique business run by a Melbourne women named Lisa. Lisa lives a simple life that revolves around her three delightful children, her loving husband and her passion for creating simple beautiful peices. Craft and sewing has always been a part of lisa and it is clearly evident in her work. The time and love that is incorporated into her cushions, quilts and picture frames is truly incredible and we are very honoured to have her work in our little shop. Below is just a little snippit of what we have in the shop...

Flying cargo's xxx

On Saturday morning we unpacked our delivery of gorgeous skinny cargo's in army green and slate grey from BLANK NYC and once we had steamed them and ticketed them we then got to watch them fly!!  

Since then these cargo's have been selling like hot cakes and it's little wonder as they fit like a glove; are super comfortable; being a skinny leg can be dressed up or down (both a heel or flat works); make your legs look longer than normal and for $155 are very reasonably priced.  

We now know why Ms Kardashian is always photographed in them!!

My new style crush xxx

There are lots of wonderful blog sites out there to be inspired by but one that I am particularly in love with is by Norwegian born model turned blogger Hanneli Mustaparta!!!  Not only does she always look amazing in gorgeous on trend outfits but she also lives in New York (one of my most favourite cities in the world) and seems to know all the fabulously dressed folk who reside in this town.

With her model/fashion styling connections she also attends all fashion shows; parties; events etc and takes really really great photo's!!  Yes it's official I do have a new style crush on Ms Hanneli xxx  To see what all the fuss is about check out her blog at

I just love this feature of Kate Moss for combines so many gorgeous things. Kate; Marrakech; Nancy Sinatra's Sand; fabulous outfits; Longchamp bags designed by Kate herself...and that hair. Gorgeous xxx

The countdown begins xxx

Well it's here - the final countdown (I'm sorry I cant type those words without hearing Europe's 1986 rock ballad in my head!! I really loved that song)...after years and years of dreaming and talking and talking some more about this idea to open a space for girls/women/ladies who like me appreciated good fashion and wanted to be the first to know about a trend or up and coming local designer or get some styling/fashion is finally here.

Inaudible Sounds

Tiger and Goat are very excited to be attending the opening night of Inaudible Sounds - an installation of Sculptural works by Roh Singh which is being held at the LIFEwithBIRD GPO store as part of the L'oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival Cultural program.  Roh Singh's sculptural forms have been described as 3 dimensional Rorschach ink blot tests that apparently work beautifully in the minimalist space of the store.  But don't take our word for it..the installation runs from the 9th till the 30th of March 2011 and is well worth a look..besides do you really need an excuse to visit this gorgeous shop anyway??

LIFEwithBIRD is located on Level 1 at the Melbourne GPO, 350 Bourke Street Melbourne.

Hello Autumn xxx

With this weeks forecast in Melbourne barely getting over 20 degree's I'd say Autumn is well and truly here..but before we all get too blue about packing away our havaianas and saying arrivederci to Summer for another year let's just remember what this cooler weather brings. For me it's the charming act of layering.  Not only does this Autumn routine allow me to continue wearing my beloved purchases from Summer that little bit longer but it also means an excuse to update the wardrobe with some beautiful new pieces. xxx  

This March I will be warding off the sudden chill in the air with a few luxurious purchases from those clever girls at SpencerLacy... I like their style but I also like their philosophy too.  A team of talented women who love making and wearing their own collection of loungewear who also give back to those less fortunate than themselves with their contribution to Rebalance the globe.  Now that's what I call layered. xxx

Lightweight Batwing Cardigan $120 in Black, Nude and Steel available at Tiger and Goat

Chunky Knit Cardi with Toggle $190 in Nude and Black available at Tiger and Goat in April
