Some fancy finds

A crochet vest (and it actually has a little crochet skirt to match)

A cute 60s handbag

Two faux fur collars

A fantastic hat with a beautiful veil that covers half the face.

Oh dear, I have been having terrible withdrawals over the last couple of weeks due to basically ever second hand shop being closed over Christmas/ New Year.   Funnily enough by the end of last year I thought I was getting a little tired of trawling through old junk in order to find the hidden treasures, but I now see that it's something I will probably never tire of!  So today, being the first official' back to work day for most people, I ventured out and spent hours visiting op shops and gossiping with old ladies!  I came home with quite the loot.  I don't know about you but I'm a real fan of shopping in the opposite seasons, so for example in summer I will stock up on warm coats and leather gloves etc.  I find that you often get the best things that way because nobody else is thinking about buying them yet!  Anyway so there you have it.  I have so much planned for the rest of the week now including getting my studio/ office space set up... SO excited!


  1. o MY! That HAT!
    The vest is damned funky,is the skirt straight or flared??? The shade of red is perfect!
    I too have been starved for opshopping! I really find it disrespectful that they close over the holidays!X

  2. That crocheted vest is so cute. The veiled hat is lovely too. I went op shopping yesterday and it was slightly mad. There were lots of people and bags and bags of donations sitting outside. Seems like you weren't the only one having withdrawals. I did manage to score some good stuff though.

  3. I have a similar little red vest that I totally need to get out now because of your inspiration!

  4. The hat is so sweet and I also dig the red vest and would love it paired with it's matchy match skirt :)

  5. Ohh, the vest is truly a dream! <3 Love love love!
