Iolanthe Gabrie is Ruby Slipper. Iolanthe has offered an elegantly curated vision of Melbourne arts, culture and style since 2009.
A vision for those who are thoughtful, adventurous and open-hearted. We are both urban and rural, thinking, dressing, eating, reading, writing, laughing, clever and empire-building.
We are #righteousbabes and suspect you are too.
Ruby Slipper sits uniquely as a Melbourne-centric arts and culture blog, presenting an intelligent, amusing and earnest view of local creative events, festivals and style. We present often-complex ideas in an accessible way, allowing readers to take what they want from our tome: be it style, new ideas, inspiration to visit new places locally, or ways to begin asserting themselves in the online space.
