Last Thursday we picked ourselves up after a week of the dreaded lurgy, popped on some lipstick and journeyed up the Eastern Freeway to Westfield Doncaster to support our fellow ladies-who-blog (notably Sarah from Style Melbourne and Phoebe from Lady Melbourne). Having not visited an indoor mall for some time I was initially a little reserved about such an adventure (and simultaneously having flashbacks of my days of working at Eastland during University). Reader, I tell you I was wrong about malls, as Westfield Doncaster is no Eastland of the late 1990’s. I am officially converted to the occasional indoors-comfort Westfield shop, what with its champagne bar, Joy cupcake shop and perpetual comfort-control. PR KPI achieved, marketing gurus of Westfield.

The Westfield Electric Lounge is a savvy cross-promotion, involving popular Melbourne bloggers interpreting their favorite trends for the upcoming spring fashion season. Five bloggers curated their ‘takes’ on spring 2012, and their work has been displayed in futuristic light boxes on the high fashion floor of Westfield. A simple but effective way to involved bloggers (and their loyal readers) in a little quasi-MSFW magic.
