It’s that time of year again, when The Way We Wear vintage market rolls around again.
Six months ago I cleaned up, picking up a gorgeous yellow dress, some jewellery and some postcards.
This time, however, I had my heart set on an A-line floral skirt and/or dress, and maybe some more jewellery, but to my chagrin, the items that caught my eye—a red, Victoria Beckham-esque shift and a navy and white floral A-line dress with matching bolero—were way out of my price range.
Instead, I got a scarf with a Hermes air about it, and a black satin poodle skirt for my Mum. As Clueless’s Cher would say, “It is a far, far better thing doing stuff for other people.”
In accompaniment to the vintage wares on sale, the event hosted a “Little Black Dress” exhibition, with authentic dresses from the likes of Chanel. In an ode to this week’s “Outfit Envy”, Lauren Conrad was also featured as a LBD aficionado!
