The best time to style hunt in Surry Hills is during the week, because the locals, the ones who live or work there are far more interesting than those who flock here to shop, wine and dine on the weekend. I’m sorry, am I being mean?
I am just being honest, like any other suburb in the world that’s going through the gentrification process, I think Surry Hills will sadly be flooded with prams in about 5 years’ time. Scary thought, isn’t it! First the junkies move in, then the trendies move in, finally the yuppies move in and then it’s all ruined. At the moment you do spot young mums during the week, but they are always sans pram, much to my relief.
Well, I guess that means we better enjoy it while it lasts. Enough rambling!
