Well i would have to say my weekend was full on but amazing all the same! I ate far too much banana bread, drank delicious coffee caught up with friends for tiki bar drinks and ended with a bang by spending up at the Vintage Vixens and Vamps market on Sunday. I went by myself because i really wanted to get in and spend some quality time sifting through the racks and even though there were some amazing pieces i would have gladly pulled my poor credit card out for i managed to control myself and only walk out with a few items!

This amazing top was a steal at $15 and i am so in love with the detailing. I will however admit it takes time to actually put on as the loops and buttons are tricky. I was trying not to go cross-eyed while hooking them together (but its worth the effort i would say) the neckline is divine!!

For some reason i am so drawn to yellow clothes...i think it may be because it reminds me of one of the most humbling things a friend ever told me, after asking her if buying a yellow bycicle was a good idea she stated "of course! When i think of you i think of sunshine" its funny how those compliments always seem to stick! Whenever i feel a little dull her comment always pops into my head.

I hope you all had a swell weekend too filled with pastries, giggles and tea!

(Wearing: Vintage top, Vintage skirt, Faux flower)

My friend said the same thing to me one day and I have to admit it, it was the best compliment I have ever had!
Everytime I feel a little "down", I think about that compliment...And I smile!
And also, you look gorgeous in yellow dear Ally! ;-)
Have a wonderful week full of adventures and beautiful clothes!

Ah, vintage shopping is always best done alone.....I was reminded of this recently when a friend came with me to a vintage fair :)
I also have a number of awkward to put on items, fortunately they are worth the effort though!

You look lovely - grey and yellow together are my favourite right now! :) Do you ever have days where you put on jeans and a t-shirt? Or do you have lots of really good pieces so you don't ever have to resort to such a boring outfit? I'm only asking because I was thinking how much I love your style, and yet again yesterday I found myself throwing on a pair of jeans. I wonder if it takes time to change your mindset and if you had to make a conscious effort to plan ahead etc?

This top is definitely super pretty! I love the sunshiny color and the style of the neckline. The big flower in your hair is adorable too.
