Busy...and Excited!

We're so busy this week that this is actually something of a Claytons post. You know, the post you do when you haven't got time to do a proper post!

Hot on the heels of my teeth drama comes Sues big house move this weekend. You might remember me showing you through her house a while ago, and how much stuff she has...if not, click here and here to see what she's had to pack over the past few weeks.




We've also had our biggest ever load of vintage clothing land in our lap this week- so exciting! Everything from 20s voile tea dresses to fabulous 60s go-go boots to 50s chiffon party dresses to spectacular gloves...and everything in between.

Of course I'll show you lots of pics as soon as I can, but not until it's all clean and presentable-I'm still working on that of course. For now I can only show little teaser pics!




Of course all the new lovelies have to be ready in time for our biggest fair of the year, the Brisbane Vintage Fashion Fair, held at Eagle Farm Racecourse on October 28 & 29. If you're local and don't know about it, look them up on Facebook as you WILL NOT want to miss this one.


The most exciting news of all though, is that we have been asked to take over the annual Zonta club Melbourne Cup fashion parade on Tamborine Mountain on November 1st! We've enlisted Miss Chrissy of The Lindy Charm School For Girls as host and compere, and will be showing a range of Melbourne Cup themed fashions from (of course) the 1920s to the 1970s, including many pieces from our new range and some as-yet unseen pieces from Sues and my personal collections.

If you're local and would love a great day out on Melbourne Cup Day, keep an eye on our Facebook page. Ticket details will be announced soon and you'll need to get in quick for this one!

I'm liking the look of that linen puffed sleeve!
That's such exciting news, I can't wait to see the pictures. Hope Sue's move goes well, she's got so much incredible stuff, a bloody nightmare to pack, I'm sure. xxxx
PS Keep your eyes peeled, the postman's got a parcel with your name on it!
