Last week we went to the Frock Up Fair in Bendigo, hosted by The Way We Wear Fairs. I caught up with some vintage buddies, made some new ones and helped a friend purchase 2 divine Lilli Ann New Look suits which she looked absolutely gorgeous in.
There's Catherine! Catherine and I traded a beaded cardi for one of my cherry necklaces recently. Good swap I say!
Vintage fabric galore.
The divine Kim with and without her fur coat. The New Look is Kim's signature look and it suits her gorgeous figure. Sigh. She also hosts Vintage warehouse shopping tours to L.A and 2013 is going to incorporate a huge Vintage Fair, the very one that Dita Von Teese never fails to miss and purchase big at.
Japanese vintage Couture.
1970's nail polish sample board. I was all over this until I read the price tag: $175.
I was feeling a little bit 'womanly', bloated and blah and the last thing I felt like wearing was a dress. I hate wearing pants but I pulled out my sailor look ones and teamed it with a 1940's Mexican jacket for a casual look. Lots of lots of bakelite made me feel much better.
BOOYAH! BAKELITE PORN POWER!
This was the first Frock Up Fair in Bendigo and am unsure if there will be another. I will keep you Victorian ladies updated when I find out more.
