Sydney Fair 2012
I went to this fabulous fair at the weekend with my wonderful mum. It was a scorching day in Sydney so we went happily into the air con and rummaged through the gorgeous Vintage attire. It was just like old times for us [we currently don't live in the same country!] We shopped and haggled and generally had a good time!
Just a snippet of the photos I took on the day, there was gorgeous fabric and colour everywhere... not to mention to extreme efforts that some people had gone to in their fashion, it was AMAZING. x
There were some fabulous items, I could of spent a fortune! There was fashion, bags, homewares, textiles, books, fabrics, trinkets and many bargains to be had.
I came away with a tapestry bag, earrings, old children's books, a tea cup set
[obviously], lace doiley's and napkins and plenty ideas and inspiration. I tried on some dresses, gorgeous but the boobs as usual didn't want to fit... he he x
Also there were Fashion shows and talks on allsorts from Burlesque to 'How to collect and wear Vintage'. We watched a show on British fashion through the decades.. it was great fun!
A few of the stands I liked in particular were: [ I loved them all! Not all are online..]

This fabulous lady Candice De Ville talked about her Vintage story and how she became a collector and lover. It was wonderful, inspiring and funny. I would recommend a visit to her website! She says the 3 things that Vintage shouldn't do are as follows:
''It shouldn't age you, it shouldn't make you look broke and it should never make you look crazy!'' Candice De ville. 2012.
