Sunday Markets, Plaid Dress

While I'm still not feeling 100% up to blogging, I snapped a couple of phone photos of the outfit I wore yesterday when I went to the Fishermen's Wharf Markets with my mum. We've been going there ever since I can remember and it's still one of my favourite places to go, though (as with anything) it can be hit and miss.


Outfit details: vintage barrette - gift; 1950s dress - etsy; belt - Valley Girl; tights - supermarket; shoes - KMart.


Brown isn't  a colour I'm all that keen on for clothes, usually, but I love this dress - the cuffed sleeves, the full skirt and round collar - and I think it looks very autumnal combined with my current hair colour.


This is what happens when I let my mum take photos! And my grabby hand shows just how attached I am to my phone, I think. Eep.


I tried to convince my mother to buy this magnificent set for her teapot collection - the teapot is of the two ducks dancing together! - but, sadly, I failed.


I may not have bought anything vintage (by what I usually blog about) but I was pretty happy with what I found! As soon as I saw the Special Agent Dale Cooper book I knew it was coming home with me but I deliberated over the rest of my purchases...except for Winter Sport Barbie. She's only missing a little skirt & some ice-skates. I've blogged about my Barbie collection before, but only the vintage side which is just a small portion. You can see more of it at Flickr if you are at all interested.

  7. Lovely dress! I don't know if this is perhaps a bit rude, but have you been loosing weight? Your waist looks tiny! Curve envy!

  8. That dress looks super lovely on you, especially with the shade of your hair. Hopefully you'll be feeling 100% soon.

  9. You look beautiful and that shade of brown suits you to a tee. I agree that the dress has a lovely autumn vibe, which is probably part of the reason why I adore it so much (autumn being my favourite season, that is).

  11. Such a lovely dress. It shows off your teeny weeny waist! That book is awesome, my boyfriend and I have it. You will love it.

  12. The dress really does look great on you/with your hair. I feel the same way about rust and greys on me, and I'm yet to brave mustard :)

  13. I love your vintage style! Great blog. Just started following you. Check out my new blog and follow back if you would like :)


  14. That dress is amazing, it fits you like a glove! Jelly, et cetera. I also love those kitschy china ducks.
