The personal blog of a vintage & goodwill shopper

Thursday, January 15, 2015


After wearing vintage clothing for the majority of my life i would have to say that it is the detailing that makes me ooh and ahh over a piece, the cut of a dress is still extremely important but if i find a hidden pocket, scalloped edges, back bow, sequins or even rope detailing like this dress...ohhh my i am all over that!

My love is somehow so in tune with knowing i really really am lusting over a certain dress, (with no mention from me) i had ventured into Bluebird Vintage a few times and thought about bringing this green beauty home but decided against it due to being around the silly season! But on Christmas morning i unwrapped a present from my love and there she was!!! Its a dream to wear, fits perfectly and is the most amazing "throw on and go" vintage dress i own. I was pretty much sold at big buttons and rope detailing...yes...just yes!!!

We stopped by this amazing flowering path on our way to an antique shop in Geelong i still remember the sweet aroma and cool breeze...ohh Geelong..i miss you!

I am so looking forward to this weekend, lindy hop tonight and a small engagement party on Sunday to celebrate with family and friends, bring on the champagne and cake!!

(Wearing: 1950's vintage dress, 1950's sunglasses, vintage gifted purse, Target flats & gifted brooch)
