Thank you so much for your kind comments on the loss of my friend yesterday. We are still waiting to hear when the funeral will be. My delightful Mum took up the hem on my vintage Hawaiian dress that I found in a local op shop. I am forever giving her dresses to re-hem for me. I ventured out in her full skirt splendor for the first time today. Mr P kindly accompanied me to the Paddington Antique Center & my favourite Paddo vintage shops to bring me some vintage cheer. I did pick up a couple of new old frocks....just when I tell myself no more, the dresses call my name....plus a couple of accessories. Bad girl!
Not my best angle....here's the back of the frock (excuse the lily white untoned arms!).
I wore my red metal flower brooch & a little birdy brooch from Salvos.
Vintage beaded bag from Salvos.
Brooches & a red vintage costume jewellery ring. Wide Gold bangle from the Vintage Fabric Fair in Auckland.
Now onto the Paddington Antique Center
LOVE all those little drawers.
Very stylish lamp shade decorated with green buttons.
Taking a breather among the vintage delights.
Mr P checking out the frocks. Love it when he wears his vintage polo T from K-Road in Auckland....such a spunk!
This is where I found a lovely cotton frock on sale.
A cabinet that opens up like mine that belonged to my Nana.
Such a pretty deer for a mere $1100. I love the antlers but don't think I could manage a face on my wall.
Love this little bird wall vase.
Delicious blue scales.
More birdy bits.
I love this stall....so visually pleasing.
Mr P & I both liked this old Elcon fan. Couldn't believe the price at $160!
