Monet Frock Friday

Today's frock is one of my first vintage purchases. It came from Vinnies at Paddington & I think it cost me $3. The print reminds me of a Monet painting. I wore my new Planet boots for the first time too & thank goodness they are comfy...I just hope my tiny feet don't look like pigs trotters!

Brisbane held it's first Go Go Retro Vintage & Vinyl Roadshow last weekend. There were about 30 sellers of vintage clothing, accessories & music. Mr P picked up a couple of hard to find CD's & I scored a pair of fabulous vintage shoes. I don't wear heels very often but these were too stylish to resist. Sometimes it pays to have such small feet!

We're off for a weekend away at the Sunshine Coast & in particular the Caloundra Antique & Collectables Fair. It's always a wonderful event & we usually come home with lots of treasures, so here's hoping we do this year as well. Wishing you all a happy weekend. Xx

  9. I am a little jealous of that cute owl neckalce! And I'm completely in love with your gorgeous dress.
