Ah Chapel Street, what a weird little darling you are. But you know what’s even weirder? Those of us who live here. Here are a few little things that are just so Chaps, it hurts.

  1. Gym, shower, redress in activewear
  2. Owning, or plan to own a poodle, oodle, staffy, bulldog or italian greyhound
  3. Totally tapping on when you ride the 78 one block, right?
  4. Will walk 2 km from South Yarra to your favourite Windsor cafe for a latte
  5. Knowing not to leave your apartment before 8am on a Sunday
  6. Not blinking an eye at 20-somethings stumbling out of Revs at 12pm
  7. Brown paper wrapped flowers from Prahran Market
  8. Not even noticing the casual $1Million worth of cars parked outside Abacus (previously Sienna)
  9. Black clothing in summer time
  10. Never waiting longer than 15 minutes for a seat at a cafe. We just go to our other, other favourite
  11. You’re a Melbournian by soul, not birth

  12. Alison’s Roast Pork & Crackling rolls

  13. Your boyfriend has at least 3 tattoo’d dopplegangers

  14. Wishing a plague on slow walkers

  15. Knowing each of the buskers by name, or playlist

  16. Taking your out of town friends to Jungle Boy

  17. Following dogs on Instagram

  18. Will cut someone for thinking that Messina is better than Pidapipo (or vise versa)

  19. Overfilling $15 veg boxes from Pino’s at Prahran Market

  20. Checking out Artists Lane to see if there’s anything new

  21. Regretting checking out Artists Lane because it’s kinda stinky, but at least you got a new Insta post #melblife

  22. You made all your friends at the dog park

  23. Having extremely strong opinions about who does the best burger on Chapel Street

  24. It’s normal to pass club goers on your way to the gym in the morning

  25. Never having to walk further than 100m for frosé

  26. Rotating between yoga, F45, Crossfit and pilates

  27. Probably going to be killed by a cyclist on a ‘vintage’ Reid bike

  28. Walking to lunch, but popping into every store for a ‘quick look’ on the way
