General pants at the new Tea Tree Plaza store
It doesn't seem like all that long ago when the shopping highlight of every young South Australian's trip to Melbourne was a visit to a General Pants store. We whined and we kicked and we threw crocodile tears and finally we got a store of our very own a few years ago in Marion. This year the second SA store opened in Rundle Mall, and just two months ago saw a third in Westfield TTP. I was lucky enough to be toured through the store by the girl-crush-worthy staff, who gave me some General Pants dosh to spend at the store that I'm still going through.
I scored some shorts that I am absolutely obsessed with; the relaxed cut makes it comfortable to wear anywhere, but the waxed finish and rose gold trimmings keep it sharp. They're the new denim cut-offs, I'm telling you.
