I think in my whole time since living in Brisbane the past 8 years I’ve been to the Balmoral/Bulimba area only a handful of times.
After a long day at work there was no way I was going to miss the Labels Shop by Endeavour Foundation pop up launch.
While I missed the parade, I noticed they had gone to the special effort of placing a red carpet out the front for this VIP night.
I was fortunate to still have lots of time to browse their racks featuring new designs from international labels including Massimo Dutti, Bershka, Pull&Bear, Stradivarius, Oysho, Uterque and many more. These were all extremely good quality pieces at affordable prices. They also put on a nice spread of treats – those chocolate balls were dangerously delicious.
I think the most impressive thing about the shop was the wall of shoes. It was probably like the shoe cupboard you wish you owned.
My friend and super fun fashion blogger Theresa from @Dreamofcolourau won the $1000 lucky door prize and got some really great buys to freshen up her wardrobe coming into winter in Brisbane.

Also available for purchase are art works done by people with a disabilities, who the Endeavour Foundation charity supports.
As Endeavour Foundation is an independent not-for-profit organisation, all funds raised from the sale of items in the shop go to supporting people with a disability in more than 4,000 placements from more than 230 locations throughout Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. These include accommodation, employment, education, training, vocational and lifestyle opportunities.
Thanks to Ruth and the team for putting on such a fantastic night. If you are interested in checking out the store, it’s located at 204 Riding Road, Balmoral.
