Sunday at a Vintage Fair

On Sunday I ventured out in the cold to a Vintage Fair at St Stephen’s near Belsize Park.

It was definitely worth the effort, and I would love to give Soph, from Bamble Vintage, a big thank you for inviting me to the fair and letting me know about it!

Vintage Party Dress

Yesterday my Opa held his 80th birthday party.  I had a lovely time.

I took a long time deciding what to wear.  I was going to wear one of my 1960s skirts and a lacy top but then I went shopping at Smoove in Auckland.

I bought 2 lovely dresses.

The one I chose to wear was black with flowers.  I also wore my floral stockings and 1940s high heels.

I love how the dress seems so delicate.  I think the floral pattern helps with that!

I can’t wait to show you the other dress I got.

If you haven’t been to Smoove yet and you live in Auckland, you should definitely go.  It is a great shop and the people are really lovely in there.  They have a selection of clothing – from Vintage reworked to brand new clothes.  They have really awesome skirts with cool patterns of skylines etc.

I have managed to find quite a few nice items while browsing their shelves.  Sometimes I buy and sometimes I don’t.  So this list will be based off atmosphere and browseability (which may or may not be a word).

My Brown Suede Skirt

When I was in Bath last week I went to Salisbury.  When I was in Salisbury I found a lovely vintage shop where I bought this 1960s suede skirt.  I love it.  Yes it is short and yes it is totally awesome!
