Pretty Pastels




To celebrate the beautiful spring weather we were having today i wore a floral second hand dress that was passed down to me from a friend with my Ralph Lauren chambray shirt. Can you believe i got this shirt for $12 in the states! Ive worn it to death all ready and its going to be a life saver when its stinking hot in a few months.

When i was putting together my outfit today my mind kept going back to a comment that was left on one of my posts regarding Vintage clothing.. Le.Fanciulle I'm talking to you! It was mentioned in my last post that i could use vintage clothing to achieve any look i desire, something i actually do quiet often but i have never really discussed on here.

I realised i haven't worn much vintage on this blog since it started,  but a few years ago I used to wear so much that i constantly had an air of old lady musk about me! I have a lot of pieces that i have thrashed over the years and this scarf  is one of them. I found it in Midland at a store that is no longer there, a smelly woman used to run it and S and i discovered some of our best buys there. The scarf opens right up to be  the same size as me and it has a beautiful oriental pattern on it. 

Due to time constraints (Vintage stores in Perth are only open during the week and Saturday mornings!)  and a change in style i don't op shop as much as i would like any more, but i still go back time and time again to my old favourites. I'm going to to give you all a look into my scarf collection soon, its monstrous! 

I have included a sneak peak of what i will be doing this weekend coming... a hint for you all is it involves the label Little Gracie and Araluen Botanic Park!
