I was inspired by Camelias and Crinolines & The Velvettes recent posts about the labels on New Zealand made vintage fashion. Here are a few pieces I've purchased on our travels to N.Z the past few years. Most of my clothing purchases have been made on Karangahape Road in Auckland, known as K-Road. I must admit it is my favourite vintage shopping destination in New Zealand. I'm lucky that my hubby loves it too, although you do run into some interesting folk on K-Road, men dressed up as women & that kind of thing! I am looking forward to finding some more Kiwi vintage during our much hoped for trip in September.
Oh & speaking of N.Z....yesterday I won a jet boat ride with KJet in Queenstown thanks to my hubby prompting me to like them on Facebook. We've done the Kawarau Jet before & loved it, so I would be more then happy to go again. Thank you KJet!
I found this pretty pink & green blouse in a vintage store in Saint Kevins Arcade on K-Road in Auckland.
This three quarter sleeve jacket was purchased at another K-Road store. It has the cutest pointy collar.
A green & white stripe blazer from yet another K-Road vintage store.
This teal blue jacket is part of a suit with a matching skirt, found in an op shop in Oxford on the South Island. I think I paid $8 for the set. Ballantynes is a lovely South Island department store.
A zip front top from K-Road.
I think this maxi skirt is handmade. It's a lovely winter weight fabric. Purchased on K-Road.
This pink maxi dress was purchased at the Auckland Vintage Textile Fair. Unfortunately the tag has been cut off.
