Great review on Yelp

It’s a bit late but we just came across this great review on Yelp and thought we’d share some of it:

Now this place is a real find. Passionata is part vintage treasure trove, part reproduction costume jewellery mecca and also stocks the MOR range which I adore (Marshmallow love) and other random homeware, gift and fashion items.

Everything fits in with the romantic vintagey theme and there’s a lot of really beautiful delicate dresses (bridal included), and Lady Gaga even shopped here and bought one!

There’s a massive range of vintage evening bags and the jewellery alone is worth coming here for. This is my new favourite place to send my man when a gift-giving opportunity is on the horizon.

You can see the whole review here.

The dress will be used in Gaga’s Australian shows, and you can already see a video of the dress in question here:
