Heidi Frock Friday

Today's 1970's frock is another special from Retro Metro at Paddington that I wore for the first time today. Thankfully a cool change came through Brisbane so I could pull out a cardigan again. It's funny how slightly cooler weather makes headline news here in Queensland, like it's a strange phenomena. Mr P & I went to the Gabba Antique Centre before my physio appointment, & then onto the Paddington Antique Centre for a vintage fix. I took my latest beaded bag on it's first outing too.

  4. I love that pineapple print chair!! The whole shop looks great. You look fab, what a great dress - but no green?! I love the peachy cardi too xx

  5. Look at you pretty lady in your pretty frock. I hope you had a fab time at the WAC & PAC. I do love the birdie brooch, but I am a little biased as you know. Funny I was wearing some Caroline created earrings today for the first time.

  6. Awesome colour combo Leisa!! You're looking healthy and relaxed, YAY!!

  7. You look fab in your Heidi frock, Leisa, you always have the most gorgeous accessories. I am coming over there to STEAL that beaded bag!
    I see I will have to fight Clare for the pineapple chair (my money's on her, bet she fights dirty, that one!)

    I love that frock too and only $5? Wow - that IS fabulous!

  11. Love that frock, ADOOORE the bird brooch and congrats on winning the giveaway! These pics remind me so much of when I lived in Paddington and Bardon and spent many many days at the great book shop (can't remember what it was called) and trawling through the vintage/op/antique shops.

  13. Oh the glory of the cardi - how I adore cardigans over gorgeous vintage frocks - you look utterly splendiferous and I just know you would have made the physio's day!!!
    I love all your beautiful brooches and beads, while your frock is simply glorious:)
    Get thee arse to Wynnum Markets - there's a local artist who makes chairs like these (maybe it's the same person?) and recently they had a Miss Marple-style chair (I know, I just made that up) upholstered in incredibly bright African fabric in pinks - sweet jaysus!!! xoxoxo

  14. Oh you sweet lady - well it's nothing but congratulations on the win, I couldn't have hoped for a better winner. I'm so glad you entered! Enjoy the vintage caffeine fix lovely xoxoxoxoxo


I'd love to hear from you!
