Back to blogging!

Well this is the first time I have even logged on to my blog in the past 2 weeks! Been having way too much fun with my mum and working very hard to get heaps or loverly items ready for my store. Have found so many goodies since last time, I have to get my head around which is which. Many have found their way home with my mum who was 5kg over in her luggage allowance - mainly vintage! I am also the proud owner of not 1 but 2 Ossie Clark dresses which will be photographed soon, a Lee Bender dress and lots of new pieces from the 40s/50s and have now got a flashy new slr camera to use, still getting used to it but its so much better than my little tiny camera so over the moon!

  1. Next time I'm up Byron way, I'm taking you shopping with me! You know how to pick a winner!

  2. Oh my goodness so many beautiful dresses! It is overwhelming!

  3. welcome back! Ive missed checking out your amazing finds. The fabric print of the 80's jumpsuit is terrific!

  4. Love love love some of these! Especially the yellow 60s dress with balloon sleeves and the 50's sunflower one. Oh, and the 80s hidden shorts floral. Seem to be drawn to yellow, but not actually sure it suits me, am probably too pale...hmmm. You look great in them though.
