I am one lucky duck, getting to spend a day with Helga for the second time! It was wonderful to catch up again during our few days in Christchurch. We met at one of our favourite cafes in Addington over lunch (hello Reuben sandwich!), & went on a tour of some of Helga's local op shops, after a quick coffee with G. The op shops were having an off day (or maybe it was me), as there wasn't much to tickle my fancy, but we still had a ball trying things on & gas-bagging along the way. As well as indulging in some vintage inspiration at Buchan Street Retro.
I wore my lime green crimplene dress for the first time in honor of the occasion, & Helga looked STUNNING in green & orange.
I really enjoyed a fossick in Tasman Traders. They don't have shops like that here in Brisbane.
Savemarts tend to be rather hit & miss & sometimes overpriced, but still worth a look in my opinion.
Below are pics from Buchan St Retro
As per usual the hours flew by far too quickly, & it was soon time for Helga to get on her bike & peddle home for band practice. We had hopes of catching up again the next day but my energy was all spent!
