Can you smell the wattle in the air? Have you noticed that the breeze isn’t as bone-chilling as it was a couple of months ago? How about the adorable mama ducks and their little ducklings trailing behind them in nearby ponds and lakes? That’s right— spring is here!

The aptly-named season puts a spring in your step and reminds you that warmer days are on the way. Pack your winter woollies away for the year— the sun is out, the birds are chirping, and your wardrobe is crying out for an update. It’s time for flowy skirts and dresses, cute tops, shorts, sunglasses, and flower crowns (hey, why not?!). Let’s get shopping!

This blog shows you the latest and greatest in both mens and womens fashion trends and where you can find them here in Moonee Ponds. Whatever your style, you’ll find the perfect piece to bring that spring outfit to life without even needing to step foot in the city.


  1. Witchery

Witchery has been a womens fashion staple for decades, first stepping onto the fashion scene in 1970. Having been around for such a long time, it’s safe to say Witchery knows how to dress a woman well! Here you’ll find style and sophistication for an effortless and timeless look.

As we approach formal season and graduations are upon us, many young women have semi-formal dresses on their minds. Witchery’s Sequin Halter Dress is set to impress with its midi length, sheath silhouette, statement halter neck, and, of course, its all-over sequin fabrication. Sparkle the night away, we say!

Team it with accessories like a statement necklace and earrings from Witchery’s jewellery collection, add a leather sling bag (we love the Margot, available in black or teal), and get ready to celebrate. You can find Witchery at 72-80 Puckle Street in Moonee Ponds, where they’re open until 7pm on Thursday and Friday nights for the ultimate in shopping convenience.
