Frock on Friday




Are Fridays rolling around faster and faster? Or am I just getting older really busy?

Either way it's Frock on Friday, and today this was my chosen errand-running and grocery shopping frock.

Nice and bright, very cheery, and it certainly got a few looks...are there really so few people in the world who wear vintage on a daily basis that a dress like this stands out??




Anyway! I know you've seen this dress before (here), but I wanted to show it off a little better, as it's one of my favourites and I've still hardly worn it yet.


It's yet another great find from a vintage fashion fair, one of the bonuses of being a vintage seller is getting first pick of everything before opening time...perhaps it's something of a trade-off for all the hard work that goes in to doing a fair!



Would you like to see my underarm?? Only kidding, just want to show you the mad sleeves and great fit.








For those locals not already in the know, Mt Gravatt Vintage Fashion Fair is on next weekend, Friday night, Saturday and Sunday, at Mt Gravatt Showgrounds on Logan Rd, Upper Mt Gravatt..

If we haven't met already please come and say hi, Sue and I will be in our usual spot, downstairs in the main pavilion, we're the biggest stall in the middle of the room so you can't miss us!

Hi Kitty I think FOF makes the week seem like its always Friday it sue goes fast lol.I reckon people were looking cos it looked great but mostly coz people are so used to others wearing drab colours pretty colours stand out well thems my thoughts.
Re that cape on the manny in my pic its one I found in the bottom of one of my dress up boxes last weekend.I didnt know I had it.,Faux fur and the loop for the hook is missing and its got a stain in the lining but is washed and clean and I love it.Not as much as I love my rabbit fur jacket tho.Will use both on a FOF eventually.

Gorgeous dress! I don't know if I'll make it to the vintage fair. I am trying to curb my spending since the wedding is only 3 months away.

Ooooh you're a damn fine looking woman in that dress Kitty and I should know, I've seen you wear it in real life!!! Yum!! I hope you are feeling better? Sounds like V is going through a really exhausting stage - they're like bloody battering rams at that age, no let-up!! I'm sorry I haven't been in touch - lots of stuff going off here. I would LOVE to help set up at the WWF but it's the same day The Phoenix has his liver cancer scan:((. I hope to attend on the Sat or Sun though. Big squeezey hugs xoxoxo
