Preparation is everything; we’ve used this saying before. For us it’s indeed a highly fashionable expression, as we’re talking Ozzie preps. Going from a dramatic weather change of getting frost bites at -20’C to a sizzling (+)30’C, we’re naturally a little bit apprehensive over our current shoe and clothing collection. As a result, 21 pairs of shoes, 4 hand bags, 15 big bags of clothing, Russian fur hats, woolly gloves, long, thick cashmere scarves, long johns (yes, no spelling error…), sheep skin coats, etc., went to meet their maker today. But all for a good reason, as they are being replaced by some new, hot, ready to wear Ozzie gear. As we don’t want to be caught lost on our first days in Sydney, we’ve done some research on our new, future habitat - the Shopping Malls of Sydney. Do make recommendations/warnings on the homeliness factor, if known to you -

MLC centre
Imperial Arcade
Piccadilly Centre
Sky Garden
Westfield Sydney Central Plaza
Westfield Centre Point
Queen Victoria Building
The Galeries Victoria
The Chifley Plaza
The Strand Arcade
Bondi Beach
Second hand in Sydney

Most of the places you've listed here can be found by taking a cab to "center point", which is where everything is located within walking distance. These would be where the main brands and big stores would be found. If you are looking for smaller and more individual boutiques, I would give Oxford Street (and I think paddington?)a go. I wouldn't say Bondi beach is a very good shopping place, unless your into the Roxy, Rip Curl stuff, although it is defintely a place you must go.LOL, thats all I do when I go to Sydney-shop and eat!

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my 1940s fashion related site. It pretty much covers 1940s fashion stuff. I guess you may find something of interest.
