The Luck of the Irish


- The 'Twiggy Dress'; one of my first ever dresses bought with the 1960's in mind.
- Vintage green 1960's earrings
- Green tights
- Black block-heeled mary-jane shoes
- Vintage white bag

Yesterday I took a bus trip way, way up north to shop for the day. Just something a little different. I love visiting new and unfamiliar places and towns. It all seems like an adventure to me. Who knows what secrets I'll find. Either way, funnily enough I only bought a couple of things, one of them being this cameo brooch. I've got cameo brooches, rings, earrings, necklaces. I think it's turning into a little collection, though none of them are worth anything. 

On Saturday I went to Supanova for the first time with my little sister. For all of you who live in Australia, this is a must! So many fabulous people, stalls, stars and costumes that you would not believe! And there I was lucky enough to meet in person Wil Wheaton, Chandler Riggs and James and Oliver Phelps. All such kind, lovely and welcoming people.

One of the many things I bought there was this pair of green tights. I'd been looking for the perfect colour in ages. All I'd seen before in green was bright neon colours which I did not quite fancy, so I nearly flipped in my shoes when I saw these! And so, I wore them for the first time yesterday. I received a mix of reactions as I always do, but a lot more than usual. Leers and stares are a guarantee, but "Oh the luck of the Irish", "Lephrechaun" and "Where did you buy your tights? I've got to dress up as a frog and I can't find any!" sure are something!


  1. Totally gorgeous dress and those tights are fantastic with it,you look great! Myself and my sister have had our fair share of stares and comments over the years too,so I can imagine the scene yesterday. Usually the best thing to do is keep smiling and act as though you don't even notice that they exist. Personally, I absolutely love green, it's actually one of my favourite colours (and i'm not just saying that because I am infact "Irish") ; )

    1. Thank you very much for your lovely comment! I shall definitely take your advice on board. It is so nice to see that there are plenty of other vintage lovers about the world. :)
