Favourite New Old Dress!

 I've had this dress for a decade, it got many a wear in the olden days, 
but has been sitting sadly on my clothes rack..
..neglegted because it wasn't quite right anymore! what a shame!
Recently i thought it time to put some life back in to the ol' dear....
i took it in, shortened the sleeves and added a jaunty lil' collar.  
Now its back to being one of my favourites!

Floral


My pal Megan came over for some afternoon beverages in the sunshine the other day...
She looked so bright and summery in her Poppet floral skirt from the new collection i thought i should take a few pictures to show you all!
I absolutely love this vintage 60s fabric, but there was only enough to make 3 skirts 
(one for megan, one for me, and perhaps one for you? its for sale at Heroes & Villains!!)

Also, how cute is her new foster hound Winona! what an adorable face :)

The Village Festival

Yahoooo, the Village Festival is on again!!
Every year the nice folk of the village roll into town and set up at Edinburgh Gardens in North Fitzroy.  
There are lots of performances done in cute lil tents...music and plays and other such nice things.
The food stalls are the best tho! so much deliciousness to be had!

My hound tilda had the best time...she loves wandering around asking for pats and scraps of food!

The whole village is decorated in a very cute n crafty way....so much bunting.



 This guy set up a little workshop in a tent and was busy sewing up some fantastic shirts

 Crepes!

 How fun is this fairy floss makin' man! It was so good and sugary...and my nutella crepe was amazing! but toooo many sweets made me over-excited....this was followed by the inevitable crash in which i had to go home and have a good ol' fashioned rest :)

Such a good time...it finishes tomorrow night, so if you're around you should go check it out.

Blossom


 I picked up this hat and jumper at the op shop about a month ago....and was pretty darn excited! 
It reminds me of something Blossom woulda worn....or perhaps those sassy ladies from Girlfriend 
(i'm not ashamed to admit that was the first cassette i ever bought! it even came with a poster....awesome!) 
I thought it best to keep with the early 90's kinda ugly outfit vibe so i also chucked on my denim jacket, way too short skirt, tights and clogs! 
YAY....pretty fancy right?! (don't worry...i know its not really fancy)



in other news, i've been taking my new camera out on a few learning expeditions...there is still a lot of functions i gotta work out....
but i am loving it! here are a few shots from around north fitzroy :)
