Who is the Illusive Femme?

A 20-something Perth fashion and lifestyle blogger with a love of all things food, style and quirk. When I’m not working my regular 9-5 job I’m out finding the best spots to eat, shop and explore in my pretty city.

What kinds of things do you blog about?

The funny thing is I find it hard sticking to one specific niche because I love too many things, so you will find a good mix of affordable fashion, food reviews, the best of Perth events and happenings and the odd personal post all jumbled together. The goings on of my colourful mind really.

What are some of your favourite things about Perth?

Although Perth is small there is always some new to be discovered! Perth is constantly evolving. The Perth I know today is so much more than what it was eight years back when I moved here. I love the culture. I love the food. I love the people. I love discovering new spots. I’m such a Perth fan, can you tell?

Top 5 Perth places?

Fremantle – I love the relaxed vibe and there is always something going on.
Perth Cultural Centre – especially in Summer, Fringe World and the arts festivals bring Perth to life!
City Farm Cafe, East Perth – I love the concept behind the spot, and the food is super!
South Perth Foreshore – it’s the best place to sit, reflect and relax.
Vic Park Farmers Market – my partner and I visit nearly every week, it’s our Sunday tradition! Fresh fruit and veg, cute puppies and tasty eats.

Where are some of your favourite places to shop in Perth?

MANY6160 in Fremantle, the random fashion markets popping up all the time all over the place, op shops and vintage stores and I love Garden City and Karrinyup Shopping Centre for fast fashion. Oh and Kmart, it’s one of my favourites!
