Vintage Finds

High Fashion, High Tea

Today I attended High Fashion, High Tea at the Park Hyatt here in Melbourne to round of Melbourne Spring Fashion Week.

It was a great way to end a hectic week of parades, showings and parties, but I loved every moment of it, specially seeing the Carl Kapp parade today.

Today’s (not so) Face

I loved the colours in this dress, and while I’ve styled it here with quite tough accessories, I think a pair of lavender, suede heels would look great with a slim, silver belt.

Or maybe you can give me your suggestions on how you’d wear it?

Like A Lady

The day I tried on this dress in New York, it was 30 degrees and humid. It was hard to imagine that it was going to work on a winter’s day, but I’m glad now that I bought it.

I featured it in a post I did on why people love New York but it only got hotter and hotter and it sat at the bottom of my suitcase for the rest of the trip.

Mix Up

A big part of why I started the blog all those years ago, was that I didn’t see the way I dressed represented in mainstream media. And I suppose it is hard to put ‘vintage’ or ‘op-shop finds’ on the pages of glossy magazines, but none the less I knew I wasn’t alone in how I mixed up my wardrobe with new designers pieces, high street fashion and vintage and second hand clothes.

I still love you

I’m not sure how long I’ve had this dress now, a couple of years I think but it could be longer. I wore it to an event today and had loads of compliments, I think it’s the colour that people warm to.
