HOT Chat: Anna Martino of Wet & Wendy

Anna Martino is the brains behind the stylish weatherwear label Wet & Wendy. Wet & Wendy hails (pun intended) from Melbourne and the products are perfect for Melbourne’s four seasons in one day weather.

HOT: Icons of Style, Mad Men Costume Exhibition, Chadstone Shopping Centre, 1341 Dandenong Rd, Chadstone

Mad Men is probably my favourite television series.
