Actually, I got a brand "new" frock.
It's the most awesome print!
I keep thinking Toulouse Lautrec, but it might be one of, or some of, his contemporaries.
I am a little uncertain about the little cowl neckline, but am willing to go with it for now!
Frock-70's, Trade Me
Jacket-60's, opshopped (would have had a frock with it originally, I reckon)
Belt-a garage sale
Crinoline-50's, Ecetera (a local vintage shop)
Bow-a 70's velvet tuxedo bow, opshopped
I had been wearing these divoon earrings from the especially lovely Sue, but sometimes my right ear gets a little irritated, so I took them off.
Anyways, these pix are actually from last week, a Friday, in fact, and I remembered for a change to take my camera out with me whilst I was running about.
This marvellous building is one of the few earthquake survivors!
It used to house Alice in Videoland in the front for many years, only the best, most diverse dvd rental in town. Now it is housing C4, a cafe, and Alice's has moved around to the left there, and has also opened an arthouse cinema!
We saw the Angel's Share there not long ago.
I don't think they were actually showing Skyfall, though.
Not too sure!
The building has been a bit of an oasis amongst a lot of rubble, such as this building directly opposite.
This used to be McKenzie and Willis, a rather flash furniture shop.
My mission, this particular day, was some food and opshopping...I stopped first at the Mediterranean Warehouse for some necessities...
(We're obsessed with that Maldon salt!)
I picked up some books at the first opshop I went to.
I feel quite nerdily excited about finding a copy of North and South. I kept patting it.
Some more cookbooks!
I'll be the judge of that!
A vast pile of fabric I really don't need!
A sweet little Pyrex dish and a wooden bowl.
A new set of scales, right.
The ones on the left were G's Mama's, and the tray part is completely knackered (a turn in the garden didn't help).
They will be for display now, and the "new" ones, now cleaned, will be my regular.
And that, as they say, was that!
