Recent Purchases

Vintage shirt-dress $60 - Paddington Antique Centre
Vintage skirt $40 - Can you keep a secret?
A couple of recent purchases. Glitzy shirtdress I'm planning to wear on my birthday in a months' time with some stacked heels and also casually tucked into skirts. The skirt will be quite transeasonal, I'm planning on wearing it during winter with tights, a long sleeve blouse and a scarf and in spring with a singlet & flats.
I found this great new little vintage boutique at Greenslopes called 'Can you keep a secret?'... There are some amazing things in there! Sometimes I can justify spending a bit more on vintage if the pieces are in good condition and I can see myself getting a lot of wear out of them. :-)

Found: On the street

For reals. Today was my lucky day.
It was put out to be picked up by council collection in a neighbouring street.
Needs new tyres, front brakes, mandatory wicker basket and handle bar streamers but I'm seriously swooning over it's beauty.

Catching up on reading

Busy with work = behind in my free-reading....... I have collected a number of free mags on my coffee table over the last couple of weeks.. I hate that some of them are full of ads but some are great for the fashion pages and a good money savers!
