Feeeeeling blue.... X

Dear friends,

I went out for dinner tonight at an African restaurant called 'Yemeni'. Despite me being a tad bit over dressed, I wanted to finally wear my blue leather jacket that I scored joyously from Ebay. Little did I know that I could wear it reversibly. Super awesome. Please share your thoughts! X

'Love Vintage Melbourne'...

Tonight I attended the 'Love Vintage Melbourne' fair, which was held at the Exhibition Hall down at the showgrounds and it was ever so fabulous. Like a kid in a candy store, I walked into the building to see stalls all around me (I really didn't know where to begin). I was swamped with lots of fur, 50s swing coats, sequin tops, poufy dresses and delicate jewellery.. With an aim to not spend all of my money, I walked around with one eye open and my hand covering the other just to avoid the beauty of what surrounded me. I met and mingled with old friends (vintage store owners) and made some new acquaintances.

If I had known that there was going to be a 'best dressed' competition on the night, I would've made that extra bit of effort. But I stood in awe amazement to watch all the candidates of the competition and fell in love with one particular lady bug structured skirt. Unfortunately, she wasn't the winner of the competition. Nonetheless, all the candidates were winners in my eyes as they each had they own style and pulled it off immaculately.

After the show, my eyes continued wandering and I met the most amazing women- Briony Nottage who makes the most exquisite and quirky head pieces and Candice DeVille who was the speaker for the 'Best dressed competition' and is a writer, model and ambassador for glamour. She specialises in vintage hair and makeup and even conducts workshops and photography sessions with clients who wish to discover their most glamorous self. She truly inspired me with her 50s demeanor and her stunning persona. I would love to work with her someday!

Four hours later, an announcement was made to wrap up the fair, but I was still in the hustle and bustle of it all. Overall, I didn't spend very much- just bought a beautiful accordian pleated maxi skirt, a pair of camel gloves, a pair of earrings and a gorgeous bag.

Keep your eyes peeled for more posts this weekend, as I should have another two posts coming up. Hope you all have a spectacular weekend.

Much love,

Miss Couture Vintage X

The front of this skirt was amazing! It looked like a lady bird flapping its wings. So pretty!

Corporate trenchie mingles at 'Little Vietnam'...

Greetings friends,

Tonight I went out for dinner with my partner at 'Little Vietnam', and we laughed until our intestines were sore. It was one of them nights where we spoke of everything silly, and he absolutely hated me bossing him around to take photos of me and show him where to stand and how to position himself etc... But all in all, he took some great shots! We enjoyed a mini banquet of rice paper rolls, prawn spring rolls (my favorite), chicken salad and soup (my partner's not so favorite). And for our mains, chicken with chili basil and I had prawns with ginger and garlic. We consumed all of this with a glass of Shiraz red wine)...

Much love,

Besotted with tassels & fringes

During this crisp autumn season, I have been reasonably infatuated with tassels- (trying to get my paws on a tassel skirt like the one Jlo wears in her new film clip 'I'm into you'). I bought this beautiful vintage scalloped crochet flapper fringe top (such a tongue twister), and just had to do a photoshoot in it. I just love the carefree Boho nature of it, and it's super comfortable to wear. I teamed this 'Wicked Plum Vintage' number with a pair of tights and my Asos boots. I also had to show off my new Scrabble collection of jewellery that I got made for me when I went to the vintage flea market a few weeks ago. By 'In the Conservatory', Maddie makes the most exquisite pieces of jewellery out of scrabble letters and kiddy fridge magnets. I simply couldn't resist, as there is always a child within. Oh and how can I not mention my lovely 'My fair lady' bag that I had to pay off in Layby supplements. Such a treat for every woman's eye!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. X

Until next time,

Miss Couture Vintage X

'Fashion is my religion, Vogue is my Bible'

What a way to escape from a pile of Uni text books staring at you in the face! I call upon a girl's night out to release the frustration, the exhaustion and instead, bring out the liveliness and eccentric nature of our persona's. My girlfriend Paula and I decided to head out to Spice Market, which is renowned for their stunning and opulent Middle Eastern interior that epitomizes the exotic Egypt. Whilst sipping on Champagne and raspberry cordial, we wiggled ourselves to the dance floor for a perfect 'girl's night out!'

Lately, I have been sooo infatuated with camel hues, from my beloved Asos mid-length skirt to now my Colette one shoulder dress. I really think camel really brings out the nature of Autumn. So I teamed my dress up with a plum colored lipstick (which I have been searching everywhere for), a pair of feather earrings (love my feathers) and a matching clutch. What are your thoughts?

Much love,

Miss Couture Vintage X

Meet my super adorable friend Anna, who celebrated her 21st Birthday in style and heaps of tulle. She looked absolutely breath-taking in the green and black tulle dress made by her talented sister and her Melissa Patchulli's. Happy Birthday sweetie! You looked MAGNIFICENT!!!!
