Cruising with a Camellia



For the first time in ages, I've been out and about opshopping.


With......







Wearing faaaabulous frocks of course, 'cos it's Friday!




I think we managed about 5 opshops.


That's not too bad, considering a lot of them are now rubble!



As usual, Brodie floored me with her gorgeous outfit!


She scored her frock off Trade Me, the tart.


Mind you, she's the size of my thigh, therefore the fab frocks doth flow!



Do I look like Brodies Mamma?!


Well, I am old enough to be so!


I must say, my bargain beacon was going off pretty well.




I came home with a few bags full of loot.


Not all of it's for me.......




Bask in my youthful glow!




So, it looks like I'm going to have to find that Edwardian coat........!!!


Crikey.

You both look freakin' fab! Your hair is totally adorable, and that raspberry coat is gorgeous. Your op-shops look great! This reminds me, I must check which of my op-shops are open again after the QLD flooding. I'm itching for some second-hand goodness.

Loving that zingy colour combination, it's so you! What a stylish op-shopping team you and Brodie make. And no, you don't look as though you're her mum, you daft woman - you look like the gorgeous buddies you are!
Looking forward to seeing what treasures you scored.

Has the damage to the stores caused prices to dip even further?

Vintage Coconut said...

Don't you dare tell me you did not buy that orange sombrero in the 4th picture. I could surely see that becoming a fun prop on your boozing nights. ;) *hehahah* I love your bright outfit!!
