So I had a shit week. Everything was going well, all on top of my work, looking forward to joining in the new listy thing on Mondays but then....my hard drive dies. Beware those of you with automatic updates as I am not alone-it over loaded hard drive and ended up costing a fortune. I hate Microsoft so much right now. I know hating is not a good word to use but feel its very justified here. So I didn't manage to get much time to go out hunting, I found a few treasures but thought I would also share with you 5 of my best finds before my blogging days.
Vintage 80s Chanel Dress
I was so close to really crapping myself when I saw this dress. It does not fit me, I am far too broad for something so pretty and dainty but tried to photograph all the little features on it! It just feel nice to own one, for now!
30s Navy Crepe Lace Trim Maxi Dress
Fabric has a nice heaviness to it so drapes very well, a really beautiful fit with all the gathers!
Vintage 40s Stud Smocked Novelty Print Dress
The wide shaped waistband again fits like only 40s dresses do and these photos do not do it justice!
Vintage 40s 50s? Miami Robes Dress
This piece is a real stunner. I have never got around to repairing the zipper but at some point I will as frozen up and so cant try it on-which is VERY annoying but this one cant be a rush job-its worth much more time invested to try and save current zipper or find a perfect replacement!
Vintage 50s Hawaiian Playsuit
This was and insane bargain and looks unworn, totally mint condition. I wish I could tell you how much these cost but its at the risk of you all hating me and you wont come and visit my blog anymore which would suck.
Now onto my bargains for the week...
60s Floral Embroidered Pink Dress
How cute is this! Love the bright psychedelic flower embroidery, very 60s! The perfect party dress I think!
70s Sheepskin Coat
This is my best find in a while and its all mine. I hate the cold so this thick fully lined coat will keep me warm all winter long and will probably be so conditioned to Australian temperatures that will end up wearing it in Summer back home in England.
Vintage 80s Neon Garden Jumper
Just couldn't say no to this because its just super loud and colourful and warm. I like colourful things!
50s Roulette Bag
Vintage 70s Green Leather Bag
Vintage 1976 Meat Tenderiser and Seasoner Set
Not sure how much meat will be left after giving it pound with this one but they look cool don't they!
Old Sewing Needles
I say needles like I have more than one in there, I don't-which is a bummer but the packet is still aesthetically pleasing.
And next the reason why I don't like to model clothes over winter??
Vintage 80s Vivian Chan Shaw Jumper
Its just so warm and I cant take it off! I love oversized jumpers, especially in cold weather!
As I enjoy the wonders of not having lost my entire years worth of computer stuff I can now get to see everyone else finds (touch wood) at the weekly blogs of:
