Hat - made by me; 1940s sunglasses - etsy; sweater - Alannah Hill; 1930s skirt - Red Ruby Vintage; cherry purse - Dangerfield.
Over the long weekend the Autumn 'The Way We Wear Fair' was on, once again, at the Burnside Ballroom. Mum and I went along and I managed to find a few lovely things (last time I just bought a hat!)
I'm ridiculously in love with this lobster plate - Carlton Ware made similar plates and bowls but this is just a, well...nothing, really...except positively amazing, of course. I'd seen one similar elsewhere just a month or so ago but I got this for a third of the price. Hurrah!
Got some more '30s - '50s Paton's knitting patterns - I had to try very hard not to buy the entire lot that were there! I'm just getting to have so many but, oh, do I ever want more. It's not just because I like to knit from them but they're such great inspiration for hairstyles, too!
This lovely cardigan appears to actually be a bed jacket (most pattern companies tended to put out booklets in themes, and still do I suppose, and all of the other things in this one are most definitely bed jackets, etc.) but, unlike the other patterns in the same book, I think it looks very much like an everyday cardigan. Having mentioned themes, I thought it'd be interesting to note that all of the little sweaters in the green book are inspired by flowers!
A couple of images from the first booklet.
I'm very pleased with this particular find - a 1940s hostess gown (I believe that's the right term? Or house coat? I'm not entirely savvy with loungewear terms, to be honest). I've been wanting one for a while but never really wanted to shell out the dollars - this one's a little worn but fits me perfectly and I love the floral pattern.
