Last Friday I had the pleasure of spending the day with darling Susan of Indigo Violet!
(I know! Two Fridays in a row of blogger meetup heaven!!! SQUEE!)
We had a fabularse day driving all about town raiding opshops...well, raiding in my case, not in Susan's!
I had some excellent luck for a change, but Susan must have passed her luck onto me!
Our day culminated in a late lunch and a teensy photoshoot.
As you do!
Frock-50's, Bess Georgette
Coat-70's, theatre sale
Socks-gift from G's Mama
Vanity case-Trade Me
Brooch-from my sistercousinwife Sarah
Sunglasses-50's, from the lovely Sue
Chain necklace and faux fringe-from lucious Vix
Fragonard necklace-put together by moi
Other necklace-a market
Susan wore the sweetest 40's frock she opshopped years ago!
Here's a close up of Susan's frock.
Isn't the print heavenly?!
And just what did I score?!
A 60's navy blue vinyl bag (gawd I love vinyl!), a Waltzing Matilda silk scarf, a glass jar, a 70's tea towel, 70's salt and pepper shakers (spotted by Susan), a few vintage hangers, some gorgeous old doilies, a set of multi purpose sewing needles and some thread, a belt for G, a silver spoon and pate knife (I have a teensy collection), 2 70's metal bowls, a 60's pale blue scarf , a 3 metre piece of turquoise blue gingham fabric, 2 pairs of 60's gloves (a pair of elbow length gloves in pale blue and a wrist length pair of gloves in navy-I am obsessed with wrist length gloves), and...
...this delicious chocolate brown faux fur 70's coat, also spotted by Susan's eagle eye!!!
It's been years since I've come home with that much loot!
We had a splendid day, and most certainly will do it all again in the future, perhaps when I'm in Susan's neck of the woods!
