Brisbane Vintage Fair

Last night, myself, Zoe and various other people went to the Brisbane Vintage Fair (http://www.vintagefashionfairs.com.au) . Two floors worth of wonderful vintage treasures, waiting for people to scour the racks and find a pre-loved item to love.

For plus sizes though? Not a lot.

There were the usual mumus (I guess from the 70s caftan hippy-esque trends?) but not really all that much else. And vintage sizing is much smaller than modern sizing, so my regular size was not my vintage size. Still, some of us managed to find some lovelies in amongst the mumus (and hell, even some of the mumus had really pretty prints). I snagged a handmade kelly green maxi dress, our friend Kiki grabbed some awesome waist belts and Zoe scored a dress and a really cool brooch.

Speaking of, lots of gorgeous accessories. A tapestry clutch with wooden handles for $25, and a pair of brown snakeskin brogues in MINT condition AND in my size for $85 would have been mine if not for the budget and the already purchased dress.

The fair finishes today, and is on from 8-3 pm at the Souths Rugby Clubhouse, Davies Park Cnr Montague Rd & Jane St, West End.
