An Adelady who decides to design her own range of natural clothing, is an Adelady who has our hearts.
Adelaide being Adelaide, Anna and I went to the same high school (Walford), so I knew before I even met her, she’s a good egg!
Anna began her career as an accountant, but had a love (and need) for natural clothing so she decided to create O2wear.
Her brand specialises in versatile everyday basics for women and I can put my hand up and say — you have to wear them to actually understand just how great they feel against your skin.
The O2wear range is made from silky soft bamboo viscose with a touch of spandex which keeps it fitted and staying in shape.
“O2wear started small, like really, really small. Just me, a website I made in the evenings at my kitchen table and a very small range of products. From there I grew it slowly while working a regular job, not sure where it would all end up.”
About 8 months ago, Anna decided it was time to take the plunge and work exclusively on her dream and it looks like that decision has paid off. She now ships worldwide.
At the same time, Anna also manages to be a super cool mum — and with another bun in the oven, things are about to get even busier.
So, we’d love to support her and share this special inspirational Adelady with you. These are some of her fave places in Adelaide.
Fave coffee spot
I’m a regular at Bar 9 on Glen Osmond Rd, though I must confess I don’t drink coffee, I’m a tea, chai, hot chocolate drinker, all of which they do really well!

My daughter’s favourite kind of park is one that has swings, so that makes it pretty easy to please her! We spend a fair bit of time at the Glenunga hub playground because it’s close to home. A little further a field is the new one at Goolwa (on barrage rd) which we’ve visited a few times and is also a real hit.

Fave brekky cafe
This is difficult, Rosey’s on Unley Rd is great, and their breakfast menu is available all day, the ultimate kind of breakfast place! Spill the Bean in Linden Park is really cute and they have a great banana pancake stack but I also can’t go past asparagus on toast at Bar 9, so you see the dilemma I have every weekend when it comes to picking where to go!
