'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!

Something's pecking at me!

The middle headpiece was simply divine!
