This blog is devoted to all the yummy fripperies that I bought on the weekend at Love Vintage.
I’d like to say that I bought a sensible woollen or gabardine dress to see me through the long, long Melbourne winter…but that would be a fib.
What I did buy was another hat from the Fabulous 40’s and 50’s (the one I wore to the fair was also from them). I have been after a black velvet 1950’s hat for a while now…and still ‘need’ a saucer style one.
and this pink net lovely with tiny rose buds and large pink rose petal leaves
and this cream Lily of the Valley hat…which is a total dream. The tulle is in perfect condition and the Lily of the Valleys are so dainty.
…and another sheer, floral, party dress.
It’s a semi-sheer, whisper thin, meringuing dress that I won’t be able to wear for at least 5 months…but she is very bonny!
I did also purchase a very snuggly 50’s beaded sweater.
I think is going to be one of my winter wardrobe staples over the coming months.
There is also the promise of one more treasure to come, it’s a long full skirted black coat.
I couldn’t bring home with me on the day…I’d dashed my cash. But it’s safely tucked away on lay-by at The Vintage Emporium and I will pick her up in a couple of weeks.
