New 50s red satin dress on it's first public outing a couple of weeks ago. I was photographed with local 50s (mega) enthusiast Lorraine Boss, who was coincidentally wearing a 50s dress bought from me last month.
While showing onlookers the size of the (massive) skirt, I was snapped for and published in the Weekend Edition online newspaper.
These were taken at the inaugural Brisbane edition of the Love Vintage Show and Sale, which proved itself to be a very busy if pricey vintage fashion fair.
I was there helping Lisa of Atomic Martini Vintage, luckily Sue and I decided to pass on selling at this fair as we have both been so ill these past few weeks that I doubt we'd have coped. Yes, I'm seeing red on the illness front too...there's no end in sight to my bronchitis but I'm over it!!
Casually snaffled at an auction for the price of a cheap cafe lunch while I was on the other side of town, this fabulous 3-piece suite is just what I'd been hoping to own one day...the day arrived sooner than I imagined, but who am I to argue with fate?
Dodgy iphone pics and imminent-necessary-steam-cleaning aside, don't you agree it's fab??
THOUGHT OF THE DAY: When I asked VB to 'pick a fresh movie' earlier this evening, as I was was sick to death of Mary bloody Poppins, she chose Sex and The City Series 4. THATS MA GIRL!!! Don't worry, she definitely can't understand it yet!
Linking up with Lakotas Ta-Dah Tuesday.
