So, I hadn't been opshopping in 3 weeks!
I call that blasphemy!
I was bloody itching to get out to a couple of my favourites on Friday, fair champing at the bit!
I took the car and left G to his own devices.....
Frock-80's tastic, opshopped
Coat-70's, from darling Curtise
Belt-from sexy Vix
Shoes-retail (sale) a few years ago
Handbag-a vintage shop in New Orleans
Scarf-a sarong, bought on Gili Air, Indonesia, just a couple of weeks ago
And whilst I didn't hit any major jackpot, I was quite pleased to come home with yet another vintage case, a strange 60's leopard hat, a possible Playtex cross your heart bra (no label) that makes my boobage dangerously pointy, a pretty tablecloth, a JAJ Pyrex casserole dish for the collection, a little vinyl coin purse, some elastic, some sequin trim, a tall glass jar and....
...this rather fabularse 70's corduroy trenchcoat!
The pangs of opshop withdrawal have now settled.
Beth Waltz asked to see the 5 frocks that I took away with me....here's 3 of them, darl....the other 2 didn't make it home! One was already fairly tatty, and the other was just too damned hot and heavy and fecked me off.
From left to right-70's maxi that I've had for a while, modern maxi (opshopped in Melbourne) and 70's caftan from my darling sistercousinwifey were all quite light and comfortable, and no trouble to dry when handwashed.
Other than that I had a swimsuit, a sarong, and a couple of visors.
I did buy a blue cheeseclothy caftan top/dress, as seen in monkey picture here , as I was bored with what I took along, but I never usually buy clothes in South East Asia, as I am far too busty to fit them, and I prefer to opshop anyway!
I did, however, buy 4 pairs of shoes, which you will gradually see...!!!
G fits the clothing really well, though, being a petite build, so we bought him 4 pairs of jeans, a pair of trousers, 2 pairs of work pants and a pair of shorts!
