So I had one last quick trip around our local op shops today with my bestie Miss J. Of course I'm not supposed to be buying anything before we go to New Zealand on Friday. Oh but surely these things were far too good to pass up, don't you think???
I've been wistfully dreaming of finding a frilly crinoline that I can wear under certain frocks for that 1950's look. I found this one in the dress up section of Salvos. Can you believe I found a green one??? How appropriate for all those green frock I have. It's actually a dancers petticoat. I might not wear it as outerwear like the fabulous Desiree or Curtise, but hopefully I'll feel just as fabulous with it swishing underneath a frock.
Despite my growing collection of vintage bags, I don't tend to use them day to day because I'm more a big bag girl. I carry a lot of "just in case stuff", just in case I need it. I admit I am a bit partial to a tan leather bag. I seem to have acquired a few, but none as huge as this one. It's by Lucky Brand of the USA & it set me back $10 at Lifeline. The leather is SO soft & yummy & it was in great condition. It did retail for $299 so I'm pretty pleased with that!
A little Australian made plastic bowl, I use these to hold my accessories....20cents.
Now that I'm branching into other colours, I really really needed an orange ring. I found this one at the little church op shop.
And my last find from the Chandler markets was this sweet red suede bag with a gorgeous coloured button thing on the front for $2.
