You can also get together with your friends and book a girls’ night — bring your own bubbles and nibbles — and enjoy a relaxed evening of fashion styling with your favourite gal pals. Kel’s store is also open throughout the week to come and simply browse the beautiful clothing, with help from the style guru always on hand. 7A Alison Rd, Wyong
