Welcome to our place!
This series has been shot at home by the INF / DEF family, with the people closest to us and the things that bring us joy in our everyday lives. While, for the moment, we can't share the four walls of 246 High St with you, we'd love to invite you into the places that we've been spending our days. INF / DEF at Home is our way of making the most of a situation and reacquainting you with everyone who is behind, and in front of, our special store.

To finish off the series part 7 takes a stroll with another of our radical shop assistant's: Melissa! and her adorable wire fox terrier Whyley ~ See below for a few of Melissa's thoughts during lockdown

April 2020

Who are you

   Melissa, a part time sales assistant, student and dancer. My dog is a wire fox terrier called Whyley.

 

What are your current favourite home comforts

    I’ve been enjoying my coffee in the morning, I use plunger and it’s become a bit of a morning ritual. Lockdown has perfectly coincided with feijoa season, and our tree is producing plenty. I also have great friends who have lent me books over this time, and I’ve been loving filling my days with reading them in the sun. and of course my pup Whyley is the best at keeping me company.

 

What is a discovery or rediscovery you’ve made during this time

    Making use of my neighbourhood , I have rediscovered the Heathcote river. Taking Whyley for walks there has become a part of my daily routine. Being confined to my house, I have discovered the exact spots the sun touches throughout the day, and I’ve enjoyed following them… it’s the little things right?  

Where do you look for inspiration or escapism

    I always turn to music to find my inspiration, but lately it’s provided an escape as well. Some artists that’s I’ve been loving through this time are:

    - Marco McKinnis
    - 9th Wonder
    - Jordan Rakei

Also, as a dancer I’ve found a sense of normality in online dance classes, it gives me the motivation to keep moving (literally).

 

If a parcel arrived on your doorstep from INF/DEF what would you love to be in it

     Penny Sage Duval dress, Lonely Ballet Wrap (Oatmeal), Commoners women’s tired dress and a Yu Mei 2/6 Vi Bag Cognac Croc

Rad stuff only.
