One of my favourite vintage clothing fairs was on this past weekend in Brisbane, The Way We Wear Fair. I really enjoy the laid back vibe of this twice yearly fair, & it's always delightful to see some of my favourite sellers like....
The prices are very reasonable, with plenty of cheaper items as well as beautiful quality & pricier ones. I came down with the Captains lurgy last week, so my plans to attend on Saturday were thwarted, as I just wasn't well enough to attend even with my Mum driving. But I was thankful to get there on Sunday. The Captain was going to drop me off, but seeing as I scored a double pass from the lovely Chris, he thought he would join me for a look. I didn't expect him to stay the entire time, but he was happily trying on shirts, hats & shoes, & getting into the vintage vibe. I am one lucky girl to have a husband who enjoys these things almost as much as I do!
Glorious nic nacs & stall from Remember When
It was a bit of a shame that attendance seemed down this year, & the heat was stifling on Sunday, which didn't really lend itself to trying on vintage clothing. But I soldered on & came home with just a few things.
I bought this DIVOOON plastic beaded bag from Vintage Hippy
The colour combo of orange & green is perfection!
If this bag were a man I'd marry it & have little beaded babies together.
A lolly pink Grace Bros cardigan
And I did purchase a frock that needs some surgery, but it feels like wearing a soft flannelette sheet, which will be perfect when the weather cools down a bit. And the Captain purchased a long sleeved cowboy shirt. I'm laying low this week trying to get over this bug I have, as we are hoping to go away for the weekend. And we all know I must preserve my strength for op shopping!
