You may have been wondering why I had a bit of a lapse with posting. Well, the reason is I was galavanting around up the coast, with my deer friend Nicoleta. And when I say galavanting I mainly mean op shopping as their op shops are pretty amazing, the only downside was having to hull it all back to Sydney.
We started off at Toronto, and as all addictions go I walked into the op shop thinking I wasn't really going to buy anything and then half an hour later, I look down to see I'm carrying half the shop to try on. Oops. But in my defence everything is much better prices than Sydney. And I saw the most amazing creature - a forty something woman, with a bleached mullet and the best part... a circa 1993 Michael Jackson t-shirt! Seriously... I didn't want her to leave the shop, I was in awe.
The next day we went to Newcastle to Darby St and found this small op shop where I found a black velvet cape/jacket that I feel so wonderful in, its hard to describe. Also had a nice conversation with the lady who owned the shop, we talked about our mutual hate for invisible zippers.
On Sunday we stopped at the Cooranbong op shop, which remains one of my favourite op shops of all time [they usually give out free bread]. A most successful trip. I won't go into specifics of what I got, but most of my finds are in the pictures above.
I also just wanted to take a moment to thank everyone who's been checking out all my posts, I'm still surprised to see the numbers rising and it makes me happy. So thankyou!
Note to self: you know you have too much velvet when you're in a rush and grab what you think is your black velvet jumper until you're out of the house ...you realise its actually one of your black velvet dresses.
