I've recently moved house and although my room is really small, I spend a lot of time there and I really love it. I'm working on my terrarium and succulent collections and having fun organising my things the way I like them.
This was an awesome find. Someone has made an old cotton reel into an egg timer. Such strange things to put together but I really like it.
You know when you walk in to an op shop and see something amazing behind the counter and you don't even know if it's for sale? So you ask the lady and she says "Yes." Then you swallow and ask "How much?" And she says...""I dunno. $4?" Sweet.
I got this nice glass container from the same shop. It's Avon. How much? $5. Awesome.
I have been so busy lately - moving house twice and studio once in the past month has left little time for outfit posts and new things. But - behold! A new dress AND haircut AND lipstick in the one day. Bam.
This dress came from etsy. The fabric has the best floral/polka dot cutout detail and it has a peter pan collar. I'm a sucker for those.
My friend steven cut my hair today - it was long overdue!
The lipstick is actually Nars - the colour is "Pop Life" and it is a good bright matte red.
The necklace was 20 cents at an op shop and it goes with everything I own and the cardigan is from a funny little asian grocery store that was (for some reason) also selling cheap cardigans!
So, there you have it. I'm back - hopefully - to regular blogging. Wish me luck!
Hello there. Here is a magazine called peppermint, with me on the front. Quite silly really, but it's a lovely magazine and you should check it out, because there are some very nice articles inside.
Also - if you're after something to do this weekend, come on down to the 2nd Vintage Swap Meet at Rancho Deluxe on Saturday the 10th, from 9-1pm. It's at 34 Budd St, Collingwood and I'll be there selling heaps of vintage dresses!
Check out the outfits on these lady taxi drivers! The photo was taken in Detroit in the early 50's and they all look so cute.
I saw this picture on Twitter yesterday and figured I had everything I needed to try a similar style.
Take one cropped sleeve knit...
One pair of high waited 40's trousers and a skinny belt...
And one vintage silk scarf...
I kinda like it...
Also - if you're in Melbourne, come down to the Rancho Deluxe Vintage Swap Meet on Saturday. It runs from 9am-2pm and I'll be there selling vintage dresses - some of which have appeared on this blog.
There's a free BBQ, $50 flash tattoos, heaps of stalls selling vintage and it's not just for girls. Rancho Deluxe is a fully functioning hot rod workshop and there will be plenty of car paraphernalia and other awesome tidbits too.
It's at 34 Budd St Collingwood, just look for the cool cars!
Hi there! (apologies in advance for the low quality pics - my camera is on its last legs.)
There have been many exciting and wonderful things since I last posted. Lots of happy customers at the shop, some nice press, good music with great friends and lots of tasty food.
This week I did two fun photoshoots, but I can't say who for yet, so watch this space around September! I had my makeup professionally done - hence the close up eye shot - look how neat the eyeliner is! (I need way more practice.)
This is a new (in the real sense of the word) dress. I am it's FIRST owner, which is a rarity for me. It's from Gorman, whose lovely things I usually covet from afar, but hey, there was a big big sale. It's sleeveless, which will be nice in summer, but it's waaaayy too cold for that now!
It's a really nice fabric, with a full circle skirt. I wore it with a black wool cardigan that I found at an op shop and shortened. No one makes nice cropped cardigans anymore! It's easy enough to do - just cut off the waist band and cut a section out of your sweater, then reattach the waistband. Just be careful the buttonholes still line up!
