My weekend of splendid frockage began with a ladydate with the gorgeous Leisa!
She and her hubby, The Captain, are doing their annual pilgrimage to New Zealand, and were able to find the time for a bit of opshopping and lunch with MOI!
It was the shittiest, coldest, nastiest day, unfortuately.
Naturally, I was a bit too excited to remember to take lots of pix, so here's what few I did.....
Frock-80'stastic, a vintage shop in Portland, Oregon
Coat-70's, from a friend
Belt, not seen, and scarf-opshopped
Handbag-80's vanity case, Trade Me
Bow-made it myself
This is what I scored whilst we were out and about
And there was a mystery bag of goodies from Leisa!
I am ALL OVER that cat knitting bag!
Plus, there was a little parcel from darling Vanessa, whom Leisa and The Captain had been hanging out with before coming up to Christchurch!
Then came Saturday......and a few errands about town.
Frock-60's, from Retropolitan
Shoes-thrifted in New Mexico (a Santa Fe Goodwill, if I remember rightly)
Handbag-from Camberwell Markets, I am not sure of age, possibly 30's??
Sunglasses-60's, from my sistercousinwife
Earrings-from Leisa the first time we met
Hair-filthy, full of knots and kinda twisted up and about and sorta working....
G just loves having trees coming out of my head....
Peepers had to have a little writhe in the gloriarse sunshine!
It was very welcome after the bitter return to Winter on Friday.
And Sunday was also a beautiful sunny day, so I popped on out to the first of the seasons vintage market days for a little poke about.
I didn't go to this particular market( the Shabby Chic Market) much last year, it' s a very tight setting and is really popular, so I tend to get a little anxious/shitey about it, but if I can knuckle myself down, and get in and out quickly, I usually find something lovely.
Frock- a theatre sale
Belt-thrifted in New Mexico
Lettucey Hat-Two Squirrels
Handbag-same as Saturdays
Earrings-from the sweetest Squirrel
Sarah Coventry brooch-thrifted in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
Little spot of gratuitious boobage for you.......
And I got lucky!
I found these delights; a weirdly brown theme, except for the black and white spot 70's frock.
That's a bowling bag, a suitcase, a sweet mirror and a 20's photo that doesn't fit our interior aesthetic at all, but I couldn't pass it up. Our house was built in 1922 after all.
