I did think that my first Instagram roundup would be my last but I realised it's a good way to show a few things I got up to in my blogging break without having to wrack my brain trying to think of what I was up to. So, here we go! On my blogging break...
I wore clothes...
Vintage dress from etsy with a mint cardigan, mint tights and milkmaid braids.
Vintage cardigan with a peach blouse and leopard pants and my post-braid 'mermaid' hair.
Another mix of vintage and new.
Vintage pants from etsy, vintage top from Red Ruby Vintage. Belt was a gift.
I expanded my record collection a little...
The records I want are almost always in the bargain bins! I was especially excited to find the Nina & Frederik records as it was through a random record purchase that I discovered their music (and I've posted about their music before).
These weren't in the bargain bin, though. The Prince Charming 45 goes well with my Ant Rap 45. And I was pretty excited to find the Bram Tchaikovsky EP. I discovered Bram Tchaikovsky when I was trying to find music similar to Wreckless Eric and The Only Ones (through last.fm) and fell in love.
All the records were purchased at Porthole records at Port Adelaide.
I expanded my doll collection quite a lot...
I finally splurged on one of the Let's Play Barbie sets I blogged about a while ago.
I started a new collection of Tammy (& friends/family) dolls! I'm going to do a post all about her soon.
The dolls on the left are clones (knock-offs) of Tammy. And how great are the illustrations on the boxes?
The doll on the left is named Havoc - she was a Super Agent! And is made from the same mould as the Mary Quant Daisy Doll. The cases on the right are from the 1970s.
I went out...
Taken at Port Adelaide. (I just noticed the photos don't line up. Oops.)
Ate some great food at Arriba Grill at Prospect.
Taken at What a Treat Cafe and Recycled Wears where one of my lovely friends works.
Pretty things arrived...
And there were some things I didn't buy...
The lamp was gorgeous but way out of my price range. And I didn't buy any cats as I need to make more room for them before I buy any more. Oops.
And, once again, you can follow me on Instagram by searching for 'andibgoode' if you wish to do so.
