Sydney Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show

On Saturday me and a friend took our girls to the Vintage Clothing and Jewelry Show in Sydney. It was a wonderful day! Once you walk through the doors, it's like going into a 'time machine'...exported all the way back to 1940 -ish.

Almost overwhelmed by all the olden day clothing, accessories, lace, sewing items, high heel shoes, pure cotton nighties, corsets, fur, hats, the list goed on and on !

Part of the fun is that many ladies dress up a little vintage themselves for the day, and I can't recall the last time I saw so many women in dresses.

For myself, wearing a dress is a rare event! I felt quite nice, in my skirt and heels and even stockings, as we browsed from stall to stall. My girls both got themselves a dress each and I came home with 2m each of floral .... fabric !

 But the thing that really surprised me was the amount of young girls (around the 20s) who all dressed the part,  even vintage hairstyles.

What a delightful and uplifting day it was !  Think I might start wearing a frock again more often !
