GC Fashion Festivus

My darling hubby & I went to the inaugural  Brisbane Vintage Fashion Fair on the Gold Coast. I was keen to check out this fair seeing as I missed the last BVFF in September. There were many familiar sellers there, but the fair was fairly small compared to the one at Eagle Farm. I tried on a few frocks but didn't purchase any. I ran into the gorgeous Trudie of  My Vintage Vow. She looked stunning in a glorious orange maxi frock & THAT fabulous new haircut. After a good look at the vintage goodies Mr P & I headed to Vintage Espresso down at Mermaid Beach for some lunch. It was featured in the Frankie Spaces magazine & it does good coffee in a funky vintage setting.

 Some treasures from Hobohemia at Paddington

The Vintage Junkyard stall

 Mr P kind of liked this corduroy number, but it would be like walking around in a sauna here in Qld!

 LOVE enamel brooches!

 Cassies Corner had one of the most beautiful hanky boxes I've ever seen.

 How cool is this telephone bag?! It actually works!

 Truly scrumptious Trudie
Love her thrifted handbag

  1. This looks like so much fun, I would love to look through all those dresses. I love your dress too, cannot believe it was 99cents!

  2. Is it completely sad that I know which sellers were there just by looking at the pics, because I know their props and stock so well?! Isn't Chris a darling, I was next to her last week at Kustom Kulture Karnival at Acacia Ridge. Love that maxi, it's one of the best I've seen on you yet.xx.

  3. Quiet seriously the loveliest maxi I saw today was yours, it is perfection on you and the colours had you looking so radiant. Thanks for the lovely words my sweet, you're precious.

  4. Your 99-cent frock is glorious - can you imagine the price tag if it was sold at the fair? As usual I'm having a wonderful perve over your GREEN accessories, love the pendant and rosary nestled up there together:).
