If you follow me on instagram (@avenuemaria by the way!), you may have had a clue in on the weekend trip my family and I had been planning! The vintage fair was back in town and I was absolutely jittery with excitement when my Mum said we were going as part of my sweet 16. I was in pure heaven as soon as I stepped shiny patent toe over the line separating the grass and the wooden floor of the exhibition area. There was so much stuff. I've never seen so much vintage in all my life! Fancy 50's head dresses, tulle petticoats galore, cat-eye sunglasses, embroidered purses and hundreds of sewing patterns. We spent about an hour roaming through the different stalls and (me) gazing wide-eyed at every sequinned, bejewelled and lace dress laid eyes on.
As much as I would've liked to blow my fortnights worth of savings on a vintage dress I decided against it... the vintage pieces were all beautiful to look at and appreciate but it was all so expensive so I left empty handed and decided to spend my money at Queen St. Mall (which I'll get to in the next post!).
Ah, it was so much fun! We are at the hotel right now and it's quite late so I am off to bed. I still have so much more to share over the next few days so stay tuned for that. I hope you are all having a lovely weekend! xo
