Back on the Blog!

Wow! 4 months has passed since the last post about the new store's Grand Opening Party!  Well Hip Hip Hoory, it was a fabulous night and I truly couldn't have hoped for it to have gone any better.  Thank you to everyone whom came along and helped celebrate.  Thanks to my family and friends, who have shown so much support and of course, Powderpuff's customers old and new, who have visited the store and continue too.

The Grand Opening Party was such a great night, so of course photos have to be shared!  Funnily many people commented on how there were so many good lookers present on the night and we can't argue with that!  Thanks to my lovely friend, Bouzi for all the photos from the night and my wonderful family for all their help that night and the lead up to it all.

Of course there had to be some kitsch for the night. The astro turf was laid out with my mate Dylan the night before.  Gosh it would've been funny to be a 'fly on the wall' watching us do it, there were some hilarious antics. My friends, Sam and Owen who did the signage for the store sure did have a great time watching us and lent us a hand with a giggle too. And talking about the signage, it's looks AMAZING!  Lil white picket fence framing the astro turf, pink flamingos, fake flowers and us Powderpuffettes were squealing with delight at the kitsch goodness.

Before the guests arrived my awesome assistant, Lady Hannah and I did some posing in front of the store, before we set at working hard all night, me mingling and Hannah helping and serving customers all night.  The posing was hard work too though, it was sweltering hot, but we couldn't let the moment pass without snaps to mark the occasion.  Thanks to Hannah, lots of ladies went home with new Powderpuff outfits that night, or placed orders for their new desired piece.  'Big Ups' Lady Hannah, she knows it all wouldn't have come together without her.

Lois from the night's sponsor Sailor Jerry Australia came along from Melbourne and was lovely enough to serve the tasty beverages all night.  Boy, was it a HOT night, and Sailor Jerry and Dry Ginger Ale sure was keeping everyone happy.  

Lots of lovely ladies wore gorgeous Summer frocks and as it was a family friendly event, lots of cute kiddies were running around in their snazzy shirts and pretty party frocks. 

The line up for the change room was constant all night, with ladies braving the heat to try on pretty things.  We giggled as ladies helped zip each other in and swapped sizes and helped each other out to find their perfect new purchase.

Of course it's never a PAR-TAE without music, so special thanks to Switchblade Jade for her swinging tunes on the night.  Always quirky, retro and fabulous is Jade's music selection and you can hear her on Adelaide's 3D Radion (93.7 FM) on two shows.  Tuesday afternoons with Suzie for (the whole) kit and caboodle and also every fortnight on Saturdays for the Revival show.  Her voice is sassy and her music is always cute to boot!

So many people attended and were coming and going all night.  The photographer did her best to photograph everyone, but there was just so many of you, it couldn't be done!  With hot rods and custom cars parked across the road, stylish people spilling out on the road, down the side street and in the lane way, it was quite a site to see.  Our lil store was crammed full of people, it was so great to see so many people turn out in support!

Rip It Up Magazine came along to the event as well and snapped some great pics.  Hannah and I were bummed we didn't make the cut though, ha ha!  Thanks to Chloe for the nice lil write up also that was placed in the following week's issue in the fashion section.

And since I am just a proud mumma, my all time fav moment of the whole night this photo above.  My friend Tiffany from Atomic Beauty's son, Clash and my son, Rocket (on the right) started play wrestling in their matching Hawaiian shirts.  As they started rolling around on the floor, Tiffany and I started chanting in unison, "Fight, fight, fight, fight!", so happy this moment was caught on camera.

So thanks again to everyone!!! Five months on since opening the store's doors and I'm still smiling and happy to say, I've met some truly amazing ladies that have walked through the doors.  Make sure you pop in and say HI! 

I have highly neglected Powderpuff's Blog, but I have it set in my head now that I will be updating it regularly from now on, so stay tuned....
