If you shop just one trendy boutique in Tasmania, make it Ally + Me. The clothing and housewares hail from all over the world—in one merchandising vignette, you might find a plush Icelandic lambskin throw draped over an Argentinian leather butterfly chair, the latter handcrafted in Sweden by Cuero Design. That said, many of the most outstanding pieces are Australian-designed and/or made, including double-muslin pinstripe shirt dresses by Lee Mathews, handmade timber bead necklaces from funkis, boxy dresses and minimalist trenches by NIQUE… the list goes on and on. Just go already. Shop. Be happy.
