Located in a tiny enchanted cottage in Paddington, Pastel Palace in Brisbane’s answer to Tokyo’s Harajuku. Bright, bold and extravagant, the whimsical clothing boutique and hair and nail salon is targeted at adults and children alike, stocking playful and quirky fashion and accessories that you’re unlikely to find en masse. From fancifully-patterned cropped tees (think pastel clouds, candy and bows) and rainbow tartan skirts, to Kewpie doll clutch bags and inflatable backpacks, there’s no denying that Pastel Palace is the place to go if you want to turn heads. But don’t just stop at a new outfit – you can have your locks and nails attended to in rooms adjoining the main store. By special appointment only, have your hair coloured any vibrant hue of the rainbow (or every colour of the rainbow!) at Mermaid’s Hair Salon, and specialty art or acrylics applied to your nails at Kawaii Klaws.
