15 March 2011

yesterday you said tomorrow


(Antipodium rosebud tee, Vtg skirt & belt, ASOS clutch, Natasha heels)

I bought this skirt for $5 off Ebay. I didn't need to alter it at all and it fits my rather small waist perfectly. It is seriously my best buy yet and pretty much my first vintage buy EVER. Yes, I never go vintage shopping or buy second hand clothing, only because there are no good second hand clothing stores where I live and I don't like buying vintage online because sizing is very tricky. I'm too lazy to look up measurements. Thought I'd take a punt with this skirt because it was only $5 and it paid off woooo.

    If I could find that clutch with a shoulder strap, it'd be exactly what I need, hahah.

  7. Ohhh your punt definitely paid off. That skirt is amazing! Good vintage/secondhand shopping in Brisbane is tricky. You have to rifle through a lot of rubbish to get at the good stuff. Sometimes I just don't have the patience for it. But when you do get lucky it's such a high lol.

  16. Ah i know! The only good second hand store around me is savers, and that's just getting expensive. I think the problem is, i don't know where to look.
    Brilliant skirt though!! Well done.

    Super Mario keyboard stickers would be cool! I'm from Brisbane too. And I agree, we have no good vintage shops here.

  24. i've bought a couple of skirts like this whilst op-shopping and though there are only a small handful of "OMG I CANT BELIEVE IT" moments when you do stumble upon something, i find the search very therapeutic hehe

    you scored great with this $5 baby!

    Vintage shopping on the Coast is horrendous. Its gotten to the point where I don't even bother any more.

    I'll tell you though, Osaka is Japan is probably on e of the best places I have come by in my travels with amazing vintage boutiques and second hand stores. Incredible pieces and amazing quality... not to mention the prices.

  105. i totally remember those days when uni was like at random times of the day!

    it's such a drag, especially when you need to fight everyone to get to uni and public transportation was the safest bet as the uni parking ate up ur money!

    you guys should sooooooo totally come to sydney, it might not be as hot as QLD, but its still warm and there are still plenty of stuff to do like food festivals at night!

    where'd u used to live in syd?

    I feel you bout the tricky sizes. I see many pretty vintage jumpers on eBay, but I don't buy it for fear that it'd be really ill-fitting and over-whelm me.
