Second Chance Fashion Sale

Thanks so much for all your suggestions in regard to what shoes to wear with maxi frock/skirts in cooler weather. I am going to be looking into some warm fabric to make some winter maxi dresses so stay tuned!

I wanted to share with you some of the things I got from the "Second Chance Fashion Sale" with the Wellington Pink Ladies this past weekend.

I got three frocks - two are pretty cool but the third its AMAZING!

Firstly the two "pretty cool" frocks -

A grey and blue wrap around dress - it looks really great on, not so great just hanging on hanger!I got this little brown office dress too - the photo isn't that great but it looks lovely on and it's made from nice thick fabric for winter.

Finally - the really AWESOME dress.....
An emerald green (just in time for St. Patrick's Day) 1960's woollen dress - it's so amazing and so warm. It cost me $40, which is a really good price for Wellington. Most of the vintage shops around town would charge at least double for a dress like this. Just look at the cute little details! I love the bows - they are adorable. But there is more! The dress isn't a dress alone, its part of a two piece set. Here's the jacket part of the outfit.I just love the furry cuffs on the coat - its just perfect! I think I'll wear it with my brown belt for added awesome.A wee label shot - because I know some folks like that kind of thing - made in NZ of course!
We have had the fire engineers at our apartment today to put in a new sprinkler system and its a totally disaster - well, the sprinkler isn't but there is dust everywhere!! Ugh - Rich is being super awesome and starting to clean it up at the moment. But I feel like we will be clearing up dust for like the next month. Tedious!

That green suit is absolutely amazing, I love it! Dying to see you in it.
I hate it when there's a layer of dust on everything, it seems to take forever to remove. x

Wow, what great finds - they're all stunning, will look forward to seeing them on :)

At least it's dust, not water or fire...

I can really see you in all 3 of these, but the vintage green suit is a total stunner!
Good buys, looking forward to seeing you in them all.
Dust... normal dust, I can live with, brick dust is another matter. Hope you get cleaned up soon. xxxxx
